About the Property

3 Bedroom 2 and 1/2 Bath in Western North Carolina Mountains

At Emory Lodge you will enjoy the magnificent mountain views of western North Carolina's National Forest. The cabin was built in 1982, and was an operating trout farm until 2002. There was a second cabin built on the property in 1985 and attached to the existing cabin by a large deck. This is the cabin we occupy when we are able to come up from Atlanta. We purchased the property in 2006 and started renovations the following year. We began offering the original cabin as a vacation rental in the fall of 2012. The total square footage of the cabin is 2200 sq. ft. The lodge has a large yard with West Buffalo Creek running through the middle of it. We have about 600 ft. of creek on the property. Trout fish right off the deck!
The area has several trout streams... stocked and native. Miles of well maintained hiking trails with magnificent views. Lake Santeetlah is only about 6 miles from the lodge, as is the Cherohala skyway and Joyce Kilmer national forest.
If seclusion, hiking, mountain streams and waterfalls, trout fishing, great mountain views, and relaxing is what you are looking for, this is the place.
Please be aware, the final 1.5 miles of road approaching the lodge is private gravel/dirt. It is very rocky and can be muddy after a rain. We suggest vehicles with medium to high ground clearance. If you are planning to ride street bikes, this is likely not for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Welcome to our site. We are Crystal and Scott Emory. We purchased the property in 2006. With encouragement from our neighbors and friends, we decided in the fall of 2012 to offer our escape from reality to others.

Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville, NC, USA:
We were looking for a weekend getaway in the Smokey mountains to ride our motorcycles. We found a property advertised as a former trout farm. After the first visit, we were hooked! We were not looking for two houses, but we could not pass on this property. Our dog Charlie loves the property as well, so we had to give up the motor cycles so he could come along!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Miles of old logging roads to walk, or ride ATV's. Located on a stocked trout stream if you like fishing, or just relaxing on the deck overlooking the stream. Nearby the scenic Cherohala Skyway, Joyce Kilmer State Park, Lake Santeetlah, Fontana Lake, and The Tail Of The Dragon.
