Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Why Michael Miller chose Robbinsville
We wanted to have a cabin on a trout stream, Snowbird is a truly overlooked treasure with (at times) monster wild trout! Aside from that the area is full of things to do outdoors. The Poplar Cove in Joyce Kilmer, and the Slickrock wilderness is 15 min, the Nantahala river is 25 min, you can hop on your mountain bike at the cabin and hit the old rail trails that follow the creek. The Tsali Mountain Bike and Horse Back area is 35 min away. The Snowbird Backcountry is 7 miles from the driveway, with miles of trails, wild trout water, and four sizeable and beautiful waterfalls. We are 10 min from the Cherohala Skyway and all of the trails (and views) which can be accessed from it. There are many charming mountain towns in the area to explore; Bryson City, Cherokee, Sylva, Dillsboro, Franklin, Andrews and Murphy are within an hour's drive.
What makes this Cabin unique
Relaxing away from the daily demands of life! Winter fishing for the steelhead, rainbows, and browns that run out of Santeetlah Lake in December, January, and February. Shopping in the small towns. Sitting on the back porch listening to the creek. Opening the windows in the cool evenings (spring, summer, and fall)and falling asleep to the sounds of the creek. Wish I were there now!

We came to ride the Tail of the Dragon, ride on the skyway and enjoy the Smokey Mountains. It was all within close distance to the cabin. Perfect, quiet spot to stay at. So relaxing. The cabin is fully stocked with everything you needed. Previous reviews had us worried about getting across the bridge to the cabin (only way in) Michael had recently made the rock cut out wider which worked. We had a big Dodge Dullay truck and a long enclosed trailer. Both fit fine going across bridge and just made the turn at the end of the bridge going in, we did scrape coming out but we made it. My husband is an experienced driver with a trailer so that helped. There was also another iffy spot once on the cabin road that was very narrow with rock sticking out but again doable. The cabin is everything described plus. You won’t be disappointed. We will definitely stay again when we venture back that way! Not many restaurants close by, AVOID the Moonshiners Steakhouse, you wouldn’t feed an animal their food it’s that bad.
2 weeks in the mountain
This is a true cabin experience in the mountains beside a beautiful creek. Bring your fishing gear because you can use it behind the cabin and if you want to walk up or down the creek as well. Snowbird is an excellent location for exploring the upper waterfalls of snowbird and Joyce Kilmer. Very family friendly, not worried about my kids ruining anything. Property manager was very responsive to calls. Firewood fully stocked.
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the cabin very much. We caught some fish and enjoyed the beautiful creek nestled in the backyard. Thank you for a great stay!
Thanks for your kind words and we hope to see you again.
Great cabin for fishing
The cabin was very nice and clean. It is a very quiet and secluded location. We didn't have any luck on the portion of Snowbird right behind the cabin but it is only 2-3 miles to the Forestry Service road that takes you to some great spots on Big Snowbird. Would recommend and will stay here again if I come back to the area.
Thanks for the kind words and for leaving the cabin so clean. We hope to see you back.
Our family of 4 had a nice weekend away. The cabin is stocked with nearly everything one could need. Twigs and split firewood were prepared and ready for the fireplace. Cellphone (Verizon) service and wifi were weak, but this wasn't such a bad thing. Very close proximity to the Nantahala National Forest and kid friendly hiking trails.
We were disappointed that the section of river the cabin is positioned on was closed for fishing. In fairness I found an email from Mr. Miller stating this. It would have been nice to know prior to booking, however. We will return.
Beautiful setting and home
The cabin was beautiful, exactly like the pictures. We loved exploring the area and coming back to a warm fire and hot chocolate. We could not have asked for a better holiday weekend. Thank you Mike!
