About Joseph White

Having been born and raised in West-Virginia i have always been close to the mountains. I came to the Great Smoky Mountains in 1995 for the first time when i fell in love with this place, the mountains, lake, scenery, foliage and roads mesmerized me so much that i kept returning year after year and made up my mind to settle down here for the rest of my life. While work keeps me traveling to much distant cities i always come back to my home here in Robbinsville where the life is simple and relaxing. Santeetlah Lake is only 10 minutes, Tail of the Dragon is only 12 minutes, Cherohala Skyway is only 15 minutes and Grocery and Restaurants are only 10 minutes from my home that i would love to offer you when you are in my city next time for your dream vacation.

Why Joseph White chose Robbinsville

The house have very relaxed lodge style lounge and large bed rooms with custom wood panelling to give a wooden cottage type look and feel. Having all modern appliances, furniture and services like High-speed Internet and 7 feet Pool table. This house is modern and built with features to match the comfort and feeling of your own house. Pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the house so we would ask you to stay here to see the difference. Santeetlah Lake is only 10 minutes, Tail of the Dragon is only 12 minutes, Cherohala Skyway is only 15 minutes and Grocery and Restaurants are only 10 minutes from here

What makes this cottage unique

This house is huge! Large groups and families can enjoy the openness of the house. Large floorplan with big bed rooms and walk-in closet.

Large back porch for outdoor grilling parties. House have four levels with each level designed to provide key benefits to the guests.

Key-less door entry, never have to worry about loosing keys to this vacation house means no bad surprises and non-stop fun.

As this house is located in the Great Smoky Mountains, cell phone coverage at the house is spotty depending on the carrier.

Extra room downstairs next to the laundry room is used for storage. This room is secluded from rest of the house and is not advertised.

I would not rent this home again ! Location is great but this house has been very neglected . musky and mold smell almost unbearable! Lack of basic kitchen wear, can opener , decent pots and pans. I think we could have found a better value for our money! Very Disappointed !

Owner's Response: Kim, hope you are doing well. We wanted to apologize again for all the inconvenience you experienced at our vacation house a few years back and we understand that no amount of refund would match a great quality time with friends and family. Last few years have been tough and we took some down time to recoup from a loss of a loved one. As we promised you, we have now not only fixed all the issues that you mentioned but to make sure this never happens again we have recruited a new cleaning and maintenance team. We have renovated this place completely and have also added few new features like a new fire pit, picnic table and bench, a new TV, new beds and lot of new furniture. This house is very close to our heart and we have done our best to make it a great vacation house like it used to be. We are excited for a new start and we would urge you to give us another chance and stay with us again, you will love this place. We promise! Looking forward to have you all back soon on your motorcycles! Regards.

King Size beds!! Bigger n Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay at. We enjoyed the big king size beds and big kitchen and living room.. The price is very reasonable and value for money is far better when you compare with other vacation homes or motels in this area. We take annual trips to the Smokies and have stayed at most of the camp grounds n motels spread around Bryson city and Robbinsville. We love to ride the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway and staying so close to these roads was superb. Robbinsville has abundant natural beauty and there something for everyone here as long as they enjoy the outdoors :) We rode to Gaitlingburg too as it was only about 30 mins ride from this home, riding thru Foothills pkwy on the way was breathtaking!! I will definitely stay here again. Thank you Joe for being so quick with the reservation process and your help is highly appreciated!

Fantastic Place to stay..

  • 5 of 5

The location, size and comfort of this place can't be beat! This was our 2nd time staying here and we were happily amazed to see that the prices were still the same as last year. This is a beautiful house to stay, we liked the open floor plan that gives everyone a lot of space no matter which room you are in. Kitchen and back deck was one of our favorite places! This is a multi level house with a great lay out. We have stayed at few other lodges and hotels before, but this place has more value for money. If you appreciate privacy, safety and big accommodating rooms then this is the place to be. I am so happy that we found this vacation house. We love to come out here at least once a year to ride the Dragon and other surrounding roads. Dragon is no doubt the best ride in the US. Can't wait to come back next year. Please everyone ride in your lane and be safe. God Bless all.

Great Home for Motorcycles and Big Families

  • 5 of 5

We found this house on the Tail of the Dragon website. It is truly a Riders Home! The roads to the house are VERY motorcycle friendly. There were 11 people in our party and there was lots of room - the house is huge! We rode the Tail several times and it was just down the road from the house. Jay, the owner, gave us a tip on a place to get a tire changed, Wheelers. That was a big help! It was close enough to Robbinsville to pick up the things we needed but very secluded too - a nice, quiet neighborhood. I highly recommend this house especially for big families or parties. Everything is provided in the house which makes it nice - no extra packing. And Jay went over and beyond to help us make our vacation happen...thanks Jay!

Tail Slaying!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! The whole area is breath taking and then to come "home" after riding all day to this house was out of this world! It is so spacious! The kitchen was huge! There was enough room for all of us to manuver around! The dinning room was a great touch to one of our meals...made it a little forma. We kicked up our heels out on the patio and absolutly enjoyed it! There were 6 of us. A larger group would fit comfortably as well. There are a few rooms under construction, and I believe that when they are complete, they will make this house even better. Jay was very kind and worked with us on arrival time. He had lots of information to share and that made it helpful.

Here are a few things that need to be noted. We didn't get to cook out as there was no propane. The tank was empty. Being on bikes, we really didn't have a way to fill it either. The kitchen is stocked, which is great! But the knives are not sharp AT ALL! It is too hard to cut veggies or fruit or meat without a sharp knife. Bring one with you! The water pressure is good in the shower, but to fill the washer or dishwasher, it takes time. This is not a problem, just need to lengthen your estimation of time for wash!

None of these things takes away form this great place. Just wish we had a heads up. We will be staying here again! We all loved it! Thank you Jay!

Motorcycle touring in the Smokies.

  • 5 of 5

For those who want to experience this area this is the perfect place to stay especially if you have a large group or family. It is centrally located Between the town of Robbinsville and the infamous Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap. The house was awesome in every aspect and the owner was very accommodating and the only regret that I had with booking this property is that we had to leave.
