Lake Santeetlah Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 8 Sleeps, Stocked Kitchen, Washer And Dryer

This house was built in 1950 as a family home. It has all the amenities to make it your home away from home: fully equipped kitchen, linens, washer and dryer. 2 televisions with dish TV. There are 3 bedrooms and a 'family room' that has a full 'hide-a-bed', so it can be used as a bedroom. There are roll-away beds that can be used and a blow-up, full sized, elevated bed. All of the beds together will enable 12 people to sleep comfortably. The views are spectacular, the small stream running alongside the property has a comforting burble sound. The stream across the road has more of a rushing sound. The garage is a 2.5 car garage with a good concrete floor to keep your bikes/cars out of the weather. The driveway and road from rt-129 are paved. This is the place to make your base of operations for riding the dragon, the blue ridge parkway, the Cherahala sky way, fishing or whitewater rafting in the Cheoah river (6 tenths of a mile away) or enjoying the Santeetlah reservoir. Come in the fall for beautiful foliage and spectacular views of the mountains afire with the colors of fall.

About Rick Bebout

I am a recent Widower. I was looking for a place that my family could go to for vacation and Holidays to rebuild our family without my wife of 47 years. I have ridden the 'Tail Of The Dragon 10 times, my wife actually followed me down it the first time, towing my trailer. This house just felt like home the first time I saw it.

Rick Bebout purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Rick Bebout chose Lake Santeetlah

it is located 8 miles from Deals Gap (The Tail Of The Dragon), 6 tenths of a mile from the Cheoah river where me and my grand kids can fish or whitewater raft. I love Robbinsville, it has that quaint 'Hometown' flavor just like all the small towns I have lived in and just like the one where I live now.

What makes this farmhouse unique

A complete 'home'. Not a motel, or a camp-sight. It has a nicely equipped kitchen, a washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms and showers with one having a bathtub for that hot water soaking for sore muscles. The bedrooms are nice, with dressers and night stands. The living room and family room have televisions with dish. The garage is nice and dry for motorcycle or car storage. The setting with the mountain views is unmatched by most places i have stayed when riding the dragon. This is truly a 'home away from home'.

I stayed here last year in july and it was absolutely fantastic. We had several people with us and when we were searching for places to stay none were big enough. This house fit us perfectly and the price was great. When we first arrived I was super excited not only that we were on vacation but that the house fit everything we needed It for. We were on a motorcycle trip so the paved driveway and garage made it that much better instead of having to leave our motorcycles out in the weather or fighting a rocky driveway. When I walked inside I was completely amazed at how much space there was. There were more than enough linens and beds for all of us to sleep in. The owner is doing a wonderful job and I Will stay here every time I go to North Carolina as long as He has a spot open for us.

Great base for exploring the area!

  • 5 of 5

The house is a great base for exploring the roads in the area, it is located between Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway, and one cannot go wrong with either.

The firepit in the back is nice, as well as garage.

We have rented this house multiple times, while participating the Dragon Hillclimb and it works well for groups too. Clean, kitchen has everything needed, and asphalt roads all the way into the garage.

Rick, the owner is a great guy to deal with as well. Recommended!

Perfect for the bikers!

  • 5 of 5

Rick is a great host. Communication was just right with directions that were easily followed. Late arrival was not an issue. Property is neat with rabbits running around beneath the apple trees and near the creek running down the side of the property.

Accommodations were nice with more than enough room for 3 of us and the garage was excellent for storing the bikes at night. Steaks on the grill were the perfect completion to a day of cruising the curves and taming the dragon!

Cherohala Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four couples stayed at Richard's home on Cochran's Creek Rd. and when you read the reviews of others you're never really 100% sure what to expect... After several wrong turns (our fault) we finally arrived 5 hours later that we'd expected but we could not have been more pleased..This home was everything and more to us all...The home itself was fantastic, beautifully decorated and spotless.. But that was no comparison to the beauty of the mountains out back and hearing the creek from the front porch.. We spent our Saturday after 4 hours of sleep riding our Harleys on the Moonshine 28, The Skyway and a safe portion of the Dragon... We had the best time and are planning to return next fall if not sooner!! I went into a panic half way home thinking I'd left something there and Rick was willing to get it express mailed to me.. Fortunately I did find it once I arrived home, but for him to be willing to go above and beyond to help me..I'll always be grateful and will recommend his rental...Thank you for our amazing weekend!!

Plenty of room for our group of 6 . Lots of extras we were happy to see ( since we rode our cycles and space for groceries and amenities were tight) . Peacefully nestled in the mountains yet close to food and gas. The Outland pit stop was a convenience! Creek was nice, several apple trees, and some raspberry bushes. ( not ready yet but will make someone happy when they are! ) great place! We will definitely return! The owner and the caretaker we both very nice! Thank you Rick and Rita!!
