Robbinsville cabin description

At Emory Lodge you will enjoy the magnificent mountain views of western North Carolina's National Forest. The cabin was built in 1982, and was an operating trout farm until 2002. There was a second cabin built on the property in 1985 and attached to the existing cabin by a large deck. This is the cabin we occupy when we are able to come up from Atlanta. We purchased the property in 2006 and started renovations the following year. We began offering the original cabin as a vacation rental in the fall of 2012. The feedback was so positive, we decided to list it with VRBO a year later. The cabin has a very rustic feel with rough sawn board and batten walls and ceilings on the second floor, and wood paneling on the main floor. The total square footage of the cabin is around 2200 sq. ft. The lodge has a large yard with West Buffalo Creek running through the middle of it. We have about 600 ft. of creek on the property. Trout fish right off the deck!
The area has several trout streams... stocked and native. Miles of well maintained hiking trails with magnificent views. Lake Santeetlah is only about 6 miles from the lodge, as is the Cherohala skyway and Joyce Kilmer national forest. As for you bikers...the final 1.5 miles to the lodge is private gravel road. We perform maintenance twice a year along with placement of new gravel. Even with ours and our neighbors efforts, the road is a bit rough, and can be muddy after rainfall. On the upside, it is unlikely you will see more than a handful of vehicles pass by during your stay.
If seclusion, hiking, mountain streams and waterfalls, trout fishing, great mountain views, and relaxing is what you are looking for, this is the place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Welcome to our site. We are Crystal and Scott Emory. We purchased the property in 2006. With encouragement from our neighbors and friends, we decided in the fall of 2012 to offer our escape from reality to others.

Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville:
We were looking for a weekend getaway in the Smokey mountains to ride our motorcycles. We found a property advertised as a former trout farm. After the first visit, we were hooked! We were not looking for two houses, but we could not pass on this property. Our dog Charlie loves the property as well, so we had to give up the motor cycles so he could come along!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Miles of old logging roads to walk, or ride ATV's. Located on a stocked trout stream if you like fishing, or just relaxing on the deck overlooking the stream. Nearby the scenic Cherohala Skyway, Joyce Kilmer State Park, Lake Santeetlah, Fontana Lake, and The Tail Of The Dragon.
