About Robbi Peirce

Originally from Florida my husband and I spend as much time in North Carolina as our schedule permits! With four children, we are constantly on the move enjoying all outdoor activities - especially water-related! Rafting is a favorite for all of us and we go so frequently that we finally bought our own raft!

Robbi Peirce purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Robbi Peirce chose Lake Santeetlah

We have been coming to the mountains of North Georgia and Western Carolina since I was in High School and vowed one day to have a place of our own! We have enjoyed all of the local bluegrass hoe downs, Stecoah Valley Center performances, mountain fairs and celebrations and especially the friendly people of North Carolina! The pristine weather keeps us coming back for summer fun, the beautiful fall seasonal change and sometimes snow in the winter!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoying an early cup of coffee on our deck while watching the Hummingbirds feed is the perfect way to start off the day! We love looking at the distant mountains, watching the sunset and listening to all of the mountain sounds! We spend lots of time at Lake Fontana with our 3 boys visiting waterfalls, rock jumping, tubing, picnicing and camping. White water rafting and tubing is a must just 20 minutes away!

Beautiful vacation home with incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay at Little Elk Knob and it will not be our last. We refer to Little Elk as a home not a house because all the comforts of home are there. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you need. All the rooms are comfortable and spotless. If you are planning on bringing your motorcycle, the drive is passable for street bikes and there is covered parking in the garage. Our day trips were easy to reach from this location, the Cherokee Village and Museum, tubing in Deep Creek, horseback riding at the Nantahala Village stables and rafting on the Nantahala. If you are a hiker there are three access points to the AT within a few minutes drive. Best of all, the view of the mountains from the upper deck!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review Becky! We do love the fact as well that our cabin has all of the conveniences that you would enjoy while on vacation in the mountains; just bring your toiletries, food and clothes and you'll be all set! Look forward to your return visit next year! Robbi

Wonderful location; wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our twin teenaged daughters had a really nice week. The house is very comfortable and easy to feel at home in. We rafted on the nearby Nantahala River, we tubed in Deep Creek, we swam and paddleboarded in Fontana Lake. We also swam in Santeetlah Lake. We went square-dancing in Brasstown. We enjoyed UNTO THESE HILLS, the Cherokee drama. We hiked in the National Park. And almost every night we roasted marshmallows and made 'smores at the fire pit. The views from the porch are beautiful and dramatic.

Well maintained and clean

  • 5 of 5

AS Linda said this was a little piece of heaven. I have already mentioned it to several friends who are considering a mtn vacation. Fontana Village has all the activities one could want for adults and children. We went on a sunset cruise and I engaged a guide for some trout fishing and had him clean and fillet them and will have a memorable meal. Robbie I hope you got the note I left next to fan blade. You and Mark were so gracious to let us use the camp.Thanks!!!

Owner's Response: It is a "little bit of heaven" up in the mountains of NC! So much to do if you want to keep busy, or just sit, relax, and enjoy what our cabin has to offer. Hope to have you back next year! Robbi

Beautiful mountain hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property! Although the cabin location makes you feel miles away from civilization, the property is equipped with all the modern conveniences that make you feel right at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with the most up-to-date appliances and there are lots of simple food items (like spices, flour and sugar) that are left to share, which keeps shopping to a minimum while allowing for lots of home-cooked meals. The cabin easily and comfortably sleeps 8-10 people (or more) as there is plenty of room for air mattresses and sleeping bags. The owners make every effort to personalize the property, but make you feel like an invited guest in their home. Local attractions are easy to get to and nearby. We enjoyed tubing, boating, hiking, shopping, and wonderful local cuisine. This is a great place to sneak away with just the two of you or (even better) to invite the whole gang (friends and family) to enjoy the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. We will definitely be visiting this property again!

Robbi was very helpful with any questions I had throughout the entire process. He was very personable, friendly and quick to respond!

The home is wonderfully decorated and the lay out is open and very inviting. The pictures are very accurate and probably don't do this beautiful cabin justice (pictures never do). One of my favorite parts of the house was the over sized wrap around porch. Relaxing in the rocking chair and hammock was a highlight for me! I prefer to cook and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need!

The location is great for those looking to spend time at the lakes, dam, tail of the dragon, Cherohala skyline, and there are many hiking opportunities with in a few minutes drive. Asheville is also only about an hour and a half away which offers a plethora of activities (Biltmore Estate and Craggy Gardens were AMAZING!!!). We only ate out a few times; the Hub in Robbinsville had amazing food, friendly staff and great atmosphere!

Having such a wonderful home to stay at in such a beautiful, safe location made this trip perfect!!! I can not wait to come back for another stay! Thank you Robbi for sharing your lovely cabin with us!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you as our guest Michelle! As you discovered, there are so many activities to do and see in the Smoky Mountains. Our cabin is the place where you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the mountains by watching the hummingbirds from the deck, viewing the beautiful sunsets in the evening, enjoying the fire pit for s'mores and family tales, cooking out with friends and exploring! We hope to have you as our guest again soon!! Robbi
