Robbinsville cabin description

The Ridge Haven @ Yellow Creek is nestled on the south side of Great Smoky Mountains National Park and enveloped by the Nantahala National Forest. It's located on a private concrete road with complete privacy, a hiking trail on the property and trout fishing available in Yellow Creek. This vacation cabin is where you'll find peace and tranqulity.

The first floor has a Great Room (living/dining & kitchen areas), bedroom, bath, laundry room and a hugh wrap-around deck. The living/dining area is flanked with a spacious 24' vaulted ceiling featured with a stone 'wood burning' fireplace and wood-laminate flooring. It's furnished with an entertainment center that holds a flat screen TV with HD-TV service, DVD and a stereo with variety of CD music. We also have fast internet and cell phone service at the cabin.

The dining area is furnished with a large farm-style table that seats six people with a view of the fireplace and the TV. It's all adjacent to the kitchen that's divided by a large island with two comfortable bar stools for extra seating.

The kitchen is completely equipped for all your cooking and baking needs. The laundry room is just around the corner with a washer and dryer, including an iron and the ironing board.

The bedroom and bathroom on the first floor are both over-sized and have direct access from each room and the hall. It has king-sized bed with enough space to open the double roll-away bed. The bathroom has two sinks, a vanity area and a tub/shower combination supplied with plenty of linens and other essentials.

The Great Room has two sets of patio doors that open onto the back of the wrap-around deck. It's furnished with a gas-grill, a large patio table and six over-sized arm chairs. There's also a 3-seater swing set that can be converted into a bed for an afternoon nap.

The second floor has a bedroom and a bathroom with a spacious 16' vaulted ceiling and an outside balcony for a private escape. This bedroom is furnished with a queen bed and decorated with an outdoor flair of bears and trees. There are two separate closets and your own climate control heating and cooling unit. The bath has a tub/shower combination and one sink with lots of large plush towels.

The cabin has over a 1,000 total square feet of air-conditioned space including 750 square feet of open deck and balcony areas. The lot area of the cabin sits on a quarter acre of flat land surrounded with complete privacy of the forest. The driveway is large enough for turning a trailer around when leaving.

A site plan of the property and additional photos of the cabin are available upon request.

An additional cabin is also available on the same mountain and private road. Please see the Mountain Retreat at vrbo#345053 for extended family and friend gatherings. Reduced rates for reservation of both cabins.

General information and brochures of attractions and restaurants are located at the cabin.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: I have fond memories growing up in Maine where we had a cottage on a lake. We had a lot of family holidays at that cottage. And then my family moved to Florida. My girlfriend's family had a cabin in Highlands, NC, so when my husband and I needed a vacation, that's where we rented, and after that we were both hooked on North Carolina. After going a few more times, we started looking for our own cabin. My husband was in the construction business and can fix just about anything. I went to Florida State University and majored in Housing & Interior Design, so we make a good team when it comes to providing a well-maintained and decorated cabin.

                          Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville:
                          We bought our second cabin that was originally called 'The Chalet' from an auction that my husband saw in our local newspaper. After purchasing it, we have vacationed there for over 15 years to get out of the Florida heat. We loved the beautiful weather and mountain views so much that when the Mountain Retreat became available we decided to purchase it for additional family gatherings. And then a few years later, the Ridge Haven became available. Everybody we knew or worked with wanted to rent the cabins, so that's how we got started. We love this County with it's country roads and laid back feeling. It is so peaceful and quiet here. Maybe an owl at night and sighting of hummingbirds during the day. It's a great place to visit.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          We love taking a walk aroung Arthur's Circle and up the hiking trail with our pets. Sometimes we're lucky to find blackberries and no bears. The weather is just like being in air-conditioning in the summer and it's so brisk in the spring and fall. The foliage is beautiful any time of the year, even after the leaves have fallen. And the locals are so friendly, always waving as they pass by.
