About Chelsea Turner

Since 1986 our family has been escaping to the mountains of Robbinsville, North Carolina to reconnect with nature, explore, and of course create lifelong memories with our family. We have hiked every trail, taught our two boys to fish here, and shared endless gatherings with family and friends. Every season offers an exciting new set of adventures and scenery. The winter snow, spring wild flowers, summer trout, and fall leaves are just the beginning of what you can expect to find. We invite you to come create memories, share new adventures, and take in the sights and sounds of this nature escape.

Chelsea Turner purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Chelsea Turner chose Robbinsville

After vacationing here as a child, we knew this was an experience we wanted to share with our children. Over the years, we searched for the perfect mountain home only to create our own private escape of several residences. Today we own four mountain homes in Robbinsville and look forward to sharing them with you, your family, and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

When you arrive at the Chestnut Lodge on Huffman Creek, it may take you a few minutes to unwind. Grab your favorite book - or e-reader - head to the porch, hammock, or stream, and prepare for a trip of pure relaxation. Our favorite thing to do is prepare a 'breakfast extravaganza' each morning for the few early risers in the bunch. Prepare a pile of pancakes for those morning lovers and let the rest stay snuggled in bed. Best of all, by the time those morning lovers wrap up, the rest of us are about ready for a day of hiking, exploring, and sometimes napping. It's just the right size home to offer a good combination of gathering spaces and privacy.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Great place that we didn't want to leave and plan to visit again. Open floor plan, but with two private bedrooms if you need some alone time. We especially enjoyed the peaceful and scenic view from great room. Pictures don't do it justice.

Beautiful cabin with lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

Took our 5 kids (ages 5-19) for a few days. The cabin is even more impressive than the pictures and so is the property. We absolutely loved it! We went hiking to seven springs which was quite a hike but all the kids made it. More complaining from the teenagers than the little ones. Bear Den Falls was a really good hike. Probably my favorite. The river/stream is beautiful. Several hammocks and a swing are around the property. We all really enjoyed the pool table and the jacuzzi. The drive from Robbinsville is about 25-30 minutes of very winding road so be prepared. We only went into town once to eat dinner. We ate at the Mexican restaurant (I think there’s only one) and it was really good. Beds were comfortable and kitchen was fully equipped. 5 stars for sure and we would love to go back again in the future!

Fantastic mountain retreat for family

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious and relaxing. This home has it all. Big kitchen(well stocked in pots, pans, utensils), huge wrap around porch to listen to the creek, a yard big enough to play catch in. The hot tub was a huge hit as were the fire pit and awesome trails to hike near by. My family and I had a truly wonderful time and would recommend this cabin ten times over!

Robbinsville, North Carolina is located in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountain Region of the southern Appalachian mountains. Known for it's diverse species of flora and fauna, the region is home to Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Slickrock Creek Wilderness Area, Natahala National Forest, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

From Huffman Creek, you're only moments to the secluded waters of Lake Santeelah. The lake boasts almost an entirely undeveloped shoreline with 75% being home to National Forest. With a restricted number of residence, the quiet lake is ideal for boating, fishing, swimming, and any of your favorite water sports. Boat and jet ski rentals are available throughout the spring and summer seasons.

Take a short drive to Highway 129 and take on the adventure of driving the 'Tail of the Dragon.' The world renowned road is a challenge even for the greatest road warriors with 318 curves in just 11 miles. Continue on your journey and loop back around to Huffman Creek on the Cherohala Skyway which winds through mountaintop ridges of the Cherokee National Forrest. These views are certainly something to write home about. Be sure to bring your camera!

For the history buffs, you're just a short drive to Cherokee, North Carolina, home to the eastern Band of the Cherokee Tribe. Try your luck at Harrah's Cherokee Casino or visit one of the many restaurants, shops, and museums.

Embrace your inner adventurer and head down the Nantahala river. Featuring a combination of Class II and III rapids, there is something for the novice and full-on adrenaline junkie. Be sure to contact one of the multiple rafting companies in Bryson City to schedule your full day of adventure. Between white water rafting, ziplining, mountain biking, and horse back riding, you'll be ready to relax when you arrive back at Huffman Creek.

Enjoy the quieter side of your stay just steps outside of your door. Take a nap by the private river while you enjoy friends and family fishing for trout.

There is certainly nothing more therapeutic than curling up in your cabin during the occasional afternoon rain or warming up by your private fire and enjoying the modern convenience of a twilight movie.

Head down to the fire pit for an evening of stories, laughs, good eats, and of course, smores.

Huffman Creek's private residence offers an abundance of opportunity for the culinary enthusiast to prepare a quick picnic to take along for the day's hike or a full feast to celebrate a day of outdoor fun and relaxation.

Take a trip down a few winding gravel roads for an escape from the complexities of the daily grind and an opportunity to reconnect with nature. A trip to the Chestnut Lodge at Huffman Creek will revitalize the senses and relax the soul.
