About Robbie Hollifield
My family has lived in the Gastonia area in the Piedmont of NC since 1971. I was born at the new Gaston Memorial Hospital in 1974. I attended Cramerton Christian Academy through the 6th grade, graduated from Hunter Huss HS in Gastonia in 1992. I married my wonderful wife in 2001. We now live in Gastonia NC with our 15-yr old daughter and 12-yr old son. We are members in regular attendance at Mount Beulah Baptist Church, Bessemer City. I hold a NC Electrical Contractors license and work in property management in Charlotte, NC.
Robbie Hollifield purchased this House in 2013
Why Robbie Hollifield chose Robbinsville
Family owned since 1962, this is our grandfather's house. He purchased it unfinished and spent most of the rest of his life finishing and caring for this property. Our granddad, Richard, was one of the Great Generation, a veteran of WWII, earning the Purple Heart. His faith in God and his rugged determination to work and provide for his family in spite of his disabilities have been a shining example to me and my brother as to the kind of men we aspire to be. Due to high unemployment our parents moved to Piedmont NC in 1971, where my brother and I grew up. It was always the highlight of our summers to spend time in the mountains with our grandparents. Our granddad passed away in 2012. We convinced our dad to buy out his 3 sisters and retain the property in our family. We want to continue the family ownership for our children but we can only afford to keep the place if it helps pay for itself. Dad and Mom are nearing retirement and we have families to support. While we grew up in the Piedmont, my brother and I share the connection of deep family roots in Graham County, going back 5 generations. We have hunted all over the county with our dad and as boys spent time fishing the creeks and streams. My brother has spent time fishing with his son in Graham County, and I am looking forward to doing the same with my kids.
What makes this House unique
We chose this property because it belonged to our granddad. He and my dad shoveled out the basement by hand and wheelbarrow. The living room sports a 19' window which overlooks the little valley below. The best way I can describe the house is 'comfortable'. It just feels like home!

Was very clean and well maintained
Very nice place to get away from the busy world. Only complaint was the Wi-Fi didn’t work. But that was ok too. God’s way of saying get away from everything. Ate at Lynn’s restaurant and Southern gals both very good. All the people in Robbinsville are very friendly. A very beautiful country side
So sorry about the Wi-Fi. Graham Country has very poor quality internet service. Glad you had an enjoyable stay.
We come as a group fishing ever year we have stayed here twice and loved it thanks
Went with family on a motorcycle/eclipse trip. Very nice set up for riding the wonderful roads around NC and TN. Highly recommended.
Perfect fit our vacation needs
Close to town yet secluded enough to relax and be away from the hustle and bustle after a long day on a ride. Plenty of covered parking for the bikes, and room enough inside.
Very nice and quiet
Large house, fireplace, clean rooms, private yard.
Will go back any time!
House was clean and as advertised
Only problems was air conditioning didn't work but luckily it wasn't that hot and there were lots of fans and also the wifi was hit or miss.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. However, as advertised Richard's Place does not have central air. Sorry about the Wi-Fi, unfortunately that is a common problem in Graham County. We actually just switched to the best provider in the area.
The home sits on the side of a small mountain near the Junaluska Memorial. It is only minutes away from Lake Santetlah. Convenient to Tail of the Dragon and Fontana Lake. See the new 1800 lb sheet metal work of art, The Dragon, at Deals Gap. Hike the Appalachian Trail. The home is in the midst of some of the best places in NC for fishing, hiking, motorcycling, and hunting. Perfect place to rest and relax in the Great Smoky Mountains. Close to Nantahala River, Joyce Kilmer Nat'l Forest, the Smoky Mountain Railway. Easy drive to Cherokee and Maggie Valley, and Cade's Cove TN. Don't miss the Cherohala Skyline Drive. Live entertainment weekly at the Stecoah Valley Community Center and on the square in Robbinsville. Within driving distance to the Smoky Mountain Performing Arts Center in Franklin, NC. Many churches in the area. For genealogy buffs, there are numerous old family cemeteries to explore.
