ReviewsWrite a review
Traveling to the end of the paved road onto a gravel road, then onto a long very narrow driveway was scary. Not recommended for bikers. Arriving at the home I was impressed with the rushing creek, beautiful big porches with rocking chairs and a swing. There were lots of humming birds. A million dollar view. I thought this is perfect but that ended as soon as I opened the front door. There was a strong musky odor and very cluttered décor. The sofa & chairs were dingy and sheets torn. A designers nightmare. The only bathroom with a shower is adjunct to the kitchen & living area. Not very convenient. I only found 1 bedroom and a loft bedroom, on VRBO, 3 bedrooms and a loft were listed. Maybe I missed the other 2 or there was another entrance. The TV in the siting area is about 24" at the most 30". ATT cell service is not available but there is a land line. I have stayed in many VRBO properties but this was the only one that was disappointing. There are a lot of possibilities for the house, just needs refreshing. I feel I paid a price for a nice resort area but instead received a motel 8.

Owner response: Correction. This traveler is not from Temple, Georgia but south Florida. The truth does find us out. The report on the road for the bikers is unwarranted The locals have chosen to leave the road unpaved for about 1/4 mi. to our cabin so that there is peace and quiet, ATV can ride, motor bike, peddle bike. We have one neighbor that rides his bike from up the mountain down all of which is not paved. We have had Gold Wing club folks in and report having a wonderful time. There are 3 rentals on this road and two other families have 2 cabins and B & B on down and up the mountain. All have visitors with motor bikes and have good reports. This person apparently does not know how to drive in the mountains as we have had visitors, family, friends for years and have never had that said about our driveway. Perhaps driving lessons might be in order for her. We have 3 bedrooms, 2 of which she seen. The loft bedroom was locked off. The one she called a LOFT is abt. 24 by 30 master suite up. The master has a big TV, sofa, seating, music, bedroom, bath and deck overlooking the water with Bistro table/chairs and covered porch overlooking the mountains. Or just as report on our VRBO listing. Fully stocked kitchen, dining room with china, and daily dinnerware. We take pride in our property and furnish FREE long distance/internet service and yes we cannot get ATT, only in certain places, as she reported. Anyone that travels in the mountains, a seasoned traveler, knows none work well there. So FREE landline. TV's, we have 2 and one is smaller to fit the spot down with the fireplace and other is larger in sitting up master. Plenty of programming too. Sheets were not torn as they are all new from up to down. Torn by whom? 9# well behaved dog was along. No smoking property yet we had ashes in a tray on the rocking chair porch still sitting when cleaning crew arrived. This traveler reported she owns 1/5 interest in a property in south Fl. So, I would challenge her to sell the interest, open a Motel 8, (per her review) and show us how to pave our roads, clean our houses, make extra bedrooms and baths, get cell service. I feel we are offering a fantastic service to our travelers and welcome them with open arms. We appreciate truthfulness but will not tolerate the likes of this person. Some people have nothing better to do than try to hurt others.

After a long day of driving, we arrived early evening at "A Breath of Fresh Air". It was just that and more! The cabin sits across the creek and down the hill from the road, more beautiful than the photos we were presented before our trip. (This includes inside and out!) Upon arrival, the first views are that of the 3 porches overlooking the landscaped yard, which leads to a walking bridge that crosses the creek! Also benches are available to relax and enjoy the views of a waterfall! The cabin is roomy, yet warm, and again beautiful with all hardwood floors downstairs and carpeted up. The view from the kitchen and living room is fantastic! When the windows are opened, you can hear the waters outside! Of course there is TV, but no need! The owner spent a great amount of time with me before our arrival about the area, her home, what to see,where to go, etc. We followed her suggestions, believed in her, and found this to be one of out best vacations to NC that we've had. Plan to return next fall, have already made reservations!! This was our 4th vacation to NC and found this side of the mountains much more peaceful and more for what we enjoy!

Owner response: We thank you for taking the time to write a reviw and especially thank you for your kind words. After all, the return guests are what so very much apprecite and will be pleased to have this family again this next year and many more years to come.
This home in the woods in set in a location that will put your mind and body at ease. It was somewhat challenging to find due to the remote location and somewhat confusing driveways, but we were able to find it without too much trouble. There truely was a breath of fresh air at this location. One could walk out of the front door or step onto one of the porches and see and hear the flowing stream just steps away. Even our dog thought this was the best place he had ever been while he jumped from rock to rock in the stream and ran through the yard. The owners were very quick to respond to all of my questions when contacting them. The location was very convienant to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest for hiking and Tsali Recreational Area for mountain biking. My husband and I are very active and found this to be a very relaxing, enjoyable way to celebrate my 30th birthday!

Owner response: Thank you for taking the time to stop by with your review. We chose the place for the same reasons--calming and serenity and privacy. We want our guest to come to our property and relax, feel like you have been on a vacation once your return home to your very hectic schedule. We work to make our property at minimum 110% of what we expect as we are long time travelers. The driveway may be a little confusing as you have to come into an island then disbure down a very long drive along the waterway to the cabin. With that said, we have a new sign made a few weeks back and should be installed shortly. That will make guests feel confortable that they are on the right path. Secondly, we always attach to an email the directions from town to our property, as the GPS sure makes some blunders. We even ask our guests to confirm that they have printed the directions. Location is remote by some standards but that is what we want. Yes we have neighbors but not in your face neighbors. Our county is majority National Forest, hence privacy is assured for our guests. Our property has excellent access which many do not in the mountains and that again was why we chose this piece of land. We want our guests to be treated special, without the land owners in your face or just the way we want to be treated when we travel. Otherwise, we and or you should stay in the big box hotels/motels.

Labor Day Week-End Visit
Was able to enjoy some relaxing time at this fairly remote site with the wife and our kid ---Pompey ( A English Springer). We selected this site because of the location, running stream and being dog friendly. It was a great place for our seldom taken R&R trips. We also were able to have a great time with family that we rarely see that came over from a neighboring town for a boating trip and a cook-out. The home has a rustic lived in homey appeal which we like. You can feel at eaze and not worry about what or what not you can touch. There are some basic house rules which we expected and that were not to detailed as in some places we have stayed. Thus it's pretty much your home as you are there. If you're looking for something like the Grove Park Inn you're out of luck... but if you like what we like.... It's a great place which I'd visit again if possible and highly recommend.

Due to the fishing ops in our yard and around and plenty of room, we have been honored to have the same family rent two of our cabins every summer since we started renting in 2004. Thank you so very much.

About the owner: We live away from this property but find ourselves needing to 'get away' from the hectic big city. We searched for years to find this property. Our criterias were as follows: Property must be in the mountains, have rushing water in view, on acreage, beautiful home, or one to build, within distance of our lives, fireflies, spring flowers, rhodies and mountain laurel, nice yard with easy access. etc. Well this was a huge order. No wonder it took us years to find. We love it in those wonderful God made mountains and look forward to each minute we can spend there. Thank you God for helping us find this place. So come and see if you enjoy it as much as our family.
Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville:
Location, location, location. Water rushing in your front yard and not across or down the road from propery. Waterfall, pond and trout river. Nature at it's best. Quiet serene area, very private and on acreage. Hear the water rush by and fall to sleep. Oh yes, easy access for 4 season convenience. All the decks, porches, yard and swing on one of them to sit and listen to the water rush by. Oh my! We have traveled to this area so many times and said well it is time to put down roots. We area so fortunate to have found a special place and will hand this down to our family members to continue to enjoy for years to come. Special place and special location. Special for sure!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Fish in your front yard, play in the water, enjoy the abundant wildflowers, smell the sweet air, enjoy star gazing from the yard or from the master suite deck. Just off Cherohala Skyway and another place to view the heavens. Ride the tail of the Dragon. Bring your bike, motor bikes or ATV's. How about that hike to waterfalls? All can be done here plus more. We chose this place for the location, water in front, easy access and on acreage. All front windows look at the water amenities.
