About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

GREER'S CABIN is a cozy, comfortable mountain cabin overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains. Enjoy the tranquility of the North Carolina mountains while watching the sun set over the Smoky Mountains. Only 30 minutes to almost everything!

Spend time hiking the Appalachian Trail, touring Fontana Dam, visiting local street festivals and fairs, White Water Rafting the Nantahala, Tubing Deep Creek, Cherokee Indian Village, or enjoying the National Forests. The mountains come alive with local outdoor shows, shopping in Cherokee, 'Unto These Hills' outdoor theatre, or enjoying the local cuisine. For the motorcycle enthusiast, we are only 15-20 minutes from Deals Gap and Tail of the Dragon!

You are invited to come and relax at Greer's Cabin, our mountain cabin, recently renovated for your vacation rental pleasure. Here you can enjoy the natural environment, snooze or read in the swing on the front deck, or just listen to the soothing mountain tranquility.

At Greer's Cabin, we include free standard satellite TV, DVD player, WiFi and a cell phone booster for cell phone usage, washer and dryer, dishwasher, microwave, full kitchen w/utensils and linens.

Greer's Cabin is secluded in the southern Smoky Mountains, yet only 12 miles from the Robbinsville grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is just to the north with scenic drives to Fontana Lake and Dam, Cades Cove and the Ocanuluftee Visitor Center just minutes away. A short drive brings you to Cherokee where you can visit Indian museums, go shopping for native crafts, or visit the casinos. A scenic drive beyond Cherokee takes you to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN. Or travel to Ashville, NC, (about one & a half hours away) to the beautiful Biltmore House and experience America’s largest home surrounded by inspiring gardens, America's most-visited winery, and the interpretive River Bend Farm.

Nearby is the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad for an old time scenic ride or dinner train, the Cheoah, Nantahala or Tuckasegee Rivers for up to Class IV+ whitewater rafting or milder 'rafting with the kids', and three horseback riding stables.

For the hiker, the Appalachian Trail is only 5 miles away at Stecoah Gap. From there you can go south to Nantahala Gorge or north to Clingman's Dome, the highest point on the AT in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

For the boaters and fisherman, Fontana Lake offers fishing, canoeing, kayaking and picnicking just two miles away on a lake that has a shoreline that is 80% undeveloped. A marina offers fuel, bait, tackle, boat rentals, equipment rentals, boat launching, and dock space.

For those that enjoy driving or cycling on challenging roads, the famous Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap is just 18 miles north, the scenic Cherohala Skyway starts just two miles to the west and you can jump on the southern end of the famous Blue Ridge Parkway in less than an hour.

ENJOY your time in the mountains!

Definition of tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for everything we needed! The cabin was beautiful and so inviting. We came for MINIs on the Dragon and it was perfectly located. The owners were amazing to work with and were very understanding when the couple we traveled with had a last minute dog sitting cancellation and had to brig their dog with us. Very accommodating. Would absolutely recommend and love to stay again!

Several problems, and blames renter because house keeper had to clean dog hair.

  • 1 of 5

Got a very nasty email from the owner saying we left her house a mess. We actually did not. The housekeeper had to clean dog hair off the chair and swept some up and was unhappy about it, but seeing as we had NO access to a vacuum or a mop that wasn't our fault. Then she complained about the trash on the front porch in the can. We were given no direction as to what to do with the can when it was full so we assumed they handle that, because our other cabins have given us a paper to take trash to the dump and did not have a can. We have never EVER left any of our rentals in a mess including this one! Since we had to pay an extra $40 for our 2 dogs to come you would think that would go towards cleaning the hair off the chair, apparently not! Both window air conditioners have a lot of mold so be weary if you rent, the defrost drain is broke on the refrigerator and leaks everyday on your products in the fridge, and the freezer freezes your products to the shelf because of the leak. In all, my family had tons of fun while vacationing and making memories. But receiving very nasty emails from the owner because her house keeper had to vacuum dog hair is ridiculous.

Owner's Response: We have had many renters in our Cabin and have not had any bad reviews in the past 10 years. Our Cabin was left in a mess. Our previous reviews speaks truth. I am very happy that this renter enjoyed their time in the Mtns.. as they are magical! My prayer for ALL my renters is to have a great time to celebrate with family and friends...this renter included.

Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went for a 4 days and it was wonderful. The house had everything we needed. We enjoyed the pack porch and swing it was very peaceful. It was relatively close to everything we wanted to do. We went whitewater rafting, kayaking, visited the Tail of the Dragon, and the Fontana Dam. It was close to a grocery store and gas station. The owners were great to work with. We would go back in the future. Because it was a couples trip it would have been nice for the downstairs bedroom to have a door. But for family vacations its great there's plenty of room for kids to stay.

Great vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the cabin and had a wonderful vacation. We were close to the lake and to other local attractions. We had everything we needed and felt cozy and relaxed at the cabin. If you are looking for an affordable rental near Lake Fontana this is a great option. The only thing to know is the stairs going to the second floor are steep and may not be the best for young children or anyone with bad hips or knees.
