Robbinsville house description

Our house is located, literally, at the end of the road. We own 5 acres, but the house surrounded by nothing except forests, including US Forest Service land. The access is through a well maintained gravel road, which travels through the woods for 1/3 of a mile. Once you get out of the car, you'll want to take a view from the porch before unloading the car.
The house has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms, TV and DVD player, with small library of movies, books, and games. There is no cable or internet access. Also there is no telephone. Verizon users will have some coverage, but other users may not get cell phone signal.

The master bedroom and master bath are on the main floor. They both have views of the mountains, even from the Jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. The other bedroom on the main floor has a queen sized bed, and opens to a screened-in porch, complete with hammock.

The lower level has a den. In addition, the third bedroom has a queen sized bed and mountain views. The fourth bedroom has two sets of double bunk beds, where the lower beds are double beds, and the upper beds are twin sized beds.

There is a full bathroom on the lower level.

Kitchen is fully equipped. There is also a washer and dryer.

The house has air conditioning, although during the nights the cool air rushes down the side of the mountain and ceiling fans have always been sufficient for us (most nights we need to pull the covers).

                        The pictures on the website are amazing, which is why we chose it. But they do not do it justice. The view was spectacular! We had such a relaxing weekend at High Meadows. Everything we needed was right there. The kids went sledding down the perfect hill that the house sits on. And the adults could relax indoors by the fire, looking out the window at the breathtaking view! We were very sad to leave, but will definitely use this place again when we want to return to the mountains any time of year.

                        We had a large group gathering for our annual reunion and this house could not have been more perfect! The location, ammenities, and layout of the house were wonderful and exactly what I expected from the online description/info from the owner. The view is simply breathtaking! The house is secluded, but not too far from town and local attractions (Joyce Kilmer Park is a must see!). Although cell service is limited, I was able to get some service on the deck of the house and a short drive down the street allowed for full service. I did not find this to be an issue during our stay (Also, the town of Robbinsville has free Wifi which was helpful for those who needed to check work email). I greatly appreciated the quick and thorough communication from the owners and would recommend to others. Thank you!

                        Our family was looking for a place to stay for a week at Thanksgiving, and we found High Meadows. It was amazing! The house, property, and views were absolutely amazing! The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 starts is because of the stove. We were going for Thanksgiving and planned on cooking a large meal, but only the right two burners on the stove worked. This was not disclosed until after we arrived, so it put a slight damper on our traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Everything turned out fine in the end, but it would have been better if we were told about it up front. Other than that, everything about the property was fabulous! There is no cable or internet, but there are plenty of movies and games to keep people busy if you need it. We came more for the relaxation than anything else, and that is exactly what we got. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking to rent a place in the mountains!

                        We just took a trip to the Great Smoky Mountain. We stayed this cabin for two days. My friends and I enjoyed and experienced a very happy and good stay. There is enough dishware, cookware which let us cook by ourselves. The house is located at a good place. In the second morning, we saw very beautiful smoky. The last road to the house is not good to find. The caretaker helped us find it!

                        Our group came to the Smoky Mountains to run The Fontana Dam Race and spend a weekend relaxing. We had a wonderful experience at the race, most beautiful run we have ever participated in! High Meadows was the perfect get away! The home was very nice, clean and comfortable! Kitchen was very well stocked so that we could prepare our spaghetti dinner for our night of relaxation following the race and rafting! Front porch had plenty of outdoor seating for all of us with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains. It is definitely a place we would LOVE to return to! Owner was very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend our trip and stay at High Meadows to anyone, especially those who love the great outdoors! WONDERFUL VRBO experience!

                        This is our second stay for the July 4th Holiday at the High Meadows, and we had another great vacation! This house is warm and inviting with the best of views and seclusion, which we look for in a lake rental. Juan and Jessica have been the best of hosts, and bend over backwards to accommodate us. Since our visit last year they have made improvements and upgrades such as a brand new heating and air system, as well as road maintenance. It was so nice to drive our boat up to the house and park it under the carport out of the rain! The beds are comfy and the kitchen supplied all our needs since we dined in each night. There is a great fire pit to make smores and the front porch is a nice place to relax. Our three year old son loves this house so much, he thinks that it is his "lake house!" We are definitely planning to make this our annual vacation to the High Meadows! Thanks again for everything!

                        The setting is a wonderful location for a Mountain stay. The home is comfortable and well supplied. You have great privacy at the end of the road. Cell signal is minimal at best but if you want to get away from the world this is not a problem. The sunsets are spectacular this time of year. The driveway is a bit steep in a few places. As long as your not pulling a heavy trailer with a standard vehicle it is not a problem. A strong truck or 4 wheel drive vehicle is recommended if pulling a heavy Motorcycle trailer. Experienced Motorcycle drivers will have no serious problems negotiating the driveway. We had a great time and really enjoyed the cool mountain air and views from High Meadows. This is a great location for a group of people wanting to enjoy some of the country's best motorcycle roads, the clear Santeetlah Lake or Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. I would stay there again.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: We bought this house simply because we fell in love with it the first time we saw it. We, our daughters, families and friends have many great memories of long weekends with, bonfires, swimming in the lake, hiking, and just having great times. Our two dogs also love the house and its surroundings. There are few things better than sitting on the porch swing first thing in the morning, looking at the mist coming off the lake, with the mountains rising above it, while sipping your first cup of coffee.

                      Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville:
                      There are many fine homes in the area, but few will have the views of High Meadows, and none will enjoy more privacy. The house is very well built and comfortable.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      High Meadows has unsurpassed privacy. You can hear every bird call and, when it rains the two branches on either side of the property become very noisy. In the evenings, when you sit on the porch you can feel the cool air rushing down the side of the mountain, while the lighting bugs put on the show!
