Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 12, Fully equiped Kitchen, Washer & 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 Cherohala 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 numerous 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 2012

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'.

Beautiful, peaceful ,and a great place for a group

  • 5 of 5

We came for riding and the eclipse...both were absolutely spectacular!!! The house was big enough that when guests joined us for the eclipse it still didn't feel crowded. This was the best stocked and set-up place we have ever stayed with homeaway/vrbo - with lots of towels, extra linens, spices, condiments, etc. And everything that was advertised was there and in working condition. It was a great experience and we will be back!!!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home base to enjoy the beautiful rides, The Cherohala, The Dragon, highway 28 to Fontana. This is a great place. So affordable. If your looking for a 5 star resort this probably ain't for you. We had 10 people staying and we really enjoyed the firepit after riding ALL day! Quite , clean and peaceful. What else could you ask for.....

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our stay. It was set in an old apple orchard full of fire flies and mountain beauty. The house was well cared for and spacious. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone.

Very nice location. Close to many of the local attractions. Great for Motorcycle vacations.

  • 5 of 5

we booked this house from Rick back in February. Couldn't beat the location. Not very far off us 129 and about 10 or so miles from Deals Gap. Plenty of parking area for two trucks with trailers. Garage/carport had enough room for our 7 bikes. Would have been nice to have a door on the carport, but never had issues with anyone bothering our stuff.

House was clean and well laid out. There are three full bedrooms and several couches with pull out beds to sleep several people. Kitchen had most of the utensils we needed. Didn't have any issues the whole 7 day stay. Will book again for sure.
