This cozy, rustic farmhouse is nestled on the banks of the scenic Cheoah River nine miles from Robbinsville, NC. It’s just a short nine mile drive to Deal's Gap (the starting point of the Tail of the Dragon - 318 curves in 11 miles).
If you are looking for a getaway – O’Henry’s is for you. Enjoy your stay in this 100 year-old farmhouse located on 25 pristine privately-owned acres in the Smoky Mountains. The 1,038 square foot house is surrounded by undeveloped property on the banks of the Cheoah River. There is a massive wrap-around porch on the front, side and rear of the house where you can relax and sip your iced tea as you escape the troubles of a far away world.
There is a babbling stream adjacent to the house and a fire pit perfect for those mountain evenings.
The Cheoah River is a top location for kayaking. The output of the Santeetlah Dam is increased on 19 specific days in 2018 (see details below) to create up to Class IV-V rapids. O’Henry’s is located at the top of the 9 mile kayak run ending at Tapoco Lodge. NOTE: There is a parking area in front of the property used by those kayaking the river. There is ample private parking behind the house. There is a two-car lockable garage – perfect for bikes or kayaking gear.
Please note the $200 security deposit is REFUNDED after your stay.
