This is a unique vacation home located within feet of Snowbird Creek. Fishing access is literally out the back door. However, the creek runs with its soothing sounds whether you fish or not. The rear screened porch offers hours of relaxation.
There is an open wood burning fireplace for those cool Fall and Winter nights. The house has central heat and air conditioning and all rooms have ceiling fans. Modern conveniences are here with none of the urban intrusions. The house is complete with WiFi, Dish Network and Netflix and the kitchen well appointed down to the Keurig coffee maker. The master bedroom has a king-size bed while there is a queen in the other. While being secluded, there is a paved road leading to the circular drive with an attached carport.
This is truly an area for the enjoyment of nature. Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness Area boasts of over 60 miles of hiking trails within 14,000 acres. Trout fishing is some of the best in the state with numerous cold water streams near by. Lake Santeetlah, within five miles, has bass, walleye, and other species within its 2800 acres and offers the boater an outlet too.
The owners welcome the many bikers who vacation in our area. For a description of the many biking experiences visit Ride the 'Dragon' @ Deals Gap. We have a covered garage to protect your equipment.
The Cherohala Skyway is a limited access highway extending 43 miles between Robbinsville and Tellico, Tennessee and follows the ridge-tops for breathtaking, undisturbed scenery.
If none of this appeals to you, then you can just kick back, relax and enjoy your surroundings. We won't bother you. We're proud of our corner of the state and encourage you to come take a look to see what you've been missing.

Why Property Manager chose Cheoah
We love the Snowbird area. I am from Robbinsville and love the small town feel. I just knew other people would love this area too. It is so quiet and peaceful and at the same time, one can be busy with area attractions too.
What makes this House unique
I enjoy just having 'deck time' and reading while enjoying the creek. I also enjoy hiking and walking in this beautiful area.

Great location and hospitality
From start to finish, this was a great vacation. If you are a trout fisherman, this is the spot for you. Right on Snowbird creek and just a short drive down to Big Snowbird (a must for delayed harvest and good for hatchery supported season as well). It’s also not far to the NOC, Fontana and surrounding areas. The house was very comfortable and very well equipped with a wide assortment of dishes, pans, utensils and appliances. Plenty of towels and there was even a cot that my son used. The open floor plan really adds space and freedom to move around while being equally comfortable. Love love love the screened porch and easy water access just outside the door. There’s plenty of room to hang your waders and relax and a nice front yard for the kids to play ball or enjoy riding their bikes on the paved road. (The House is at the end of the road too and hardly any traffic going in and out.)
I am one that relies on reviews quite a bit before making a decision on renting a vacation home so I like to be a thorough as possible. Renting this cabin would not be a mistake. We absolutely hated to leave and were so comfortable and happy here. Michael was a tremendous help before and during checkin and checked on us to see if we were ok. Meeting and speaking Anna was a pleasure and we enjoyed petting Rexie as well as the other neighborhood dogs who came to visit (all friendly so no worries). It helped us to not miss our own big puppy at home as much!
I highly recommend this Home for your next vacation getaway. We will be back for sure!!
Thanks so much for the review and we look forward to your return.
A Refuge for Rest and Relaxation!
What a great place to escape to and leave behind the hustle and bustle of life. We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return one day. The house was very cozy and comfortable; the screened porch was the best! Ate most of our meals on the porch and napped a couple of times, too. You can't beat the sound of the flowing creek just steps away from the house. Our suggestions would be to just put a bed on the porch - lol! The fishing in the creek and bird-watching are an added plus. If you want a quiet place to stay, this is it, yet you still have so much to see and do within an hours drive in all directions. Michael and Joyce are great to work with. Always available if you have any needs or questions.
Dining on the screen porch while watching/listening to the creek was so soothing. And every need had been anticipated and solved for in the well-stocked house. Very peaceful to be away from all the demands of our busy lives for a couple of days in a very laid back setting. Would definitely rent this one again.
Many thanks for your kind comments. We strive to make the stay pleasant and hope to see you again.
Beauty and comfort all in one place!
The house was comfortable and suited our needs perfectly. The covered carport was just what we needed for our motorcycles. The stream running behind the house it was relaxing to listen at night. It was a comfortable and inviting place to return to after a day of riding the bikes or sightseeing. Everything we needed was there. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and most likely will return in the future.
Great area for riding motorcycles
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Snowbird house. The relaxing sound of the creek was a perfect way to end a busy day…listening to the creek and watching the birds at the feeder. My husband rode the Tail of the Dragon six times as well as several of the other runs in the area. We visited Maggievalley, Cherokee, and Bryson City. We even did the National Forest Road/Tatham Road which is part of the Trail of Tears. The Joyce Kilmer Forest is a must see just for the HUGH trees. The trails are a wonderful hike.
Gary and I have rented many places at different locations over the years but I must say we have found our happy place. When we walked into this house so clean and neat and a screened in porch right on the creek, I knew it was going to be outstanding. We trailered our motorcycle over to ride Tail of the Dragon and other roads and we did, BUT.... I could have stayed at the house and never left in at all. I must t say this is the VERY first time in all my vacations that I was NOT ready to come home . We are going back just as soon as we can. Actually I should write a terrible review so no one would want to go and we could go anytime we wanted . Ha. But I cannot.... Best place in the mountains.. Again cannot wait to go back.
Motorcyling 'Tail of the Dragon' and Cherohalla Skyway, Joyce Kilmer Narional Forest, Kayaking Cheoh River. Come and enjoy our beautiful Fall color season.
