Property description

This house was built in 1950 as a family home. It has all the amenities to make it your home away from home: fully equipped kitchen, linens, washer and dryer. 2 televisions with dish TV. There are 3 bedrooms and a 'family room' that has a full 'hide-a-bed', so it can be used as a bedroom. There are roll-away beds that can be used and a blow-up, full sized, elevated bed. All of the beds together will enable 12 people to sleep comfortably. The views are spectacular, the small stream running alongside the property has a comforting burble sound. The stream across the road has more of a rushing sound. The garage is a 2.5 car garage with a good concrete floor to keep your bikes/cars out of the weather. The driveway and road from rt-129 are paved. This is the place to make your base of operations for riding the dragon, the blue ridge parkway, the Cherohala sky way, fishing or whitewater rafting in the Cheoah river (6 tenths of a mile away) or enjoying the Santeetlah reservoir. Come in the fall for beautiful foliage and spectacular views of the mountains afire with the colors of fall.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I am a recent Widower. I was looking for a place that my family could go to for vacation and Holidays to rebuild our family without my wife of 47 years. I have ridden the 'Tail Of The Dragon numerous times, my wife actually followed me down it the first time, towing my trailer. This house just felt like home the first time I saw it.

Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville, NC, USA:
it is located 8 miles from Deals Gap (The Tail Of The Dragon), 6 tenths of a mile from the Cheoah river where me and my grand kids can fish or whitewater raft. I love Robbinsville, it has that quaint 'Hometown' flavor just like all the small towns I have lived in and just like the one where I live now.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
A complete 'home'. Not a motel, or a camp-sight. It has a nicely equipped kitchen, a washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms and showers with one having a bathtub for that hot water soaking for sore muscles. The bedrooms are nice, with dressers and night stands. The living room and family room have televisions with dish. The garage is nice and dry for motorcycle or car storage. The setting with the mountain views is unmatched by most places i have stayed when riding the dragon. This is truly a 'home away from home'.
