About Jack and Sheila Ullrich

Originally from Chicago and Kentucky, we met and married in Naples, FL and have been married for 24 years. We have raised our 4 children in Naples, and they have grown up vacationing at our cabin.

Jack and Sheila Ullrich purchased this cabin in 1996

Why Jack and Sheila Ullrich chose Smoky Mountains

After many years of vacationing in the surrounding area, we purchased the cabin when our 4 children were small. We have created many lasting memories over the last 12 years with our family and friends, and enjoy sharing our place with others when we are not able to use it.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is close to many of our favorite outdoor activities, including boating and tubing on Fontana Lake, whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River, hiking on the Appalachian Trail, exploring the waterfalls at Deep Creek in Bryson City, mountain biking at Tsali, and just relaxing at the cabin while building fires inside and out, roasting hot dogs and smores, sitting on the front porch swing enjoying the hummingbirds feed and reading a good book, listening to the babbling creek that runs through the property, and soaking up the peaceful feel of the surroundings.

Beautiful cabin with easy access

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little setup and an easy location so you're not spending all your time trying to access the cabin. We had 6 adults staying for 4 nights and we all felt very comfortable. We used the outside fireplace one evening for smores and that was perfect. Recommended for sure

Peaceful and felt like home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful retreat for our family. Everything was perfect, so we had no need to contact anyone, but it was reassuring to have contact information, just in case. We were able to bring our two dogs, so we didn't worry about them being left behind.

Highly recommend this peaceful, relaxing home!

Property was well cared for and well equipped. Cabin is warm and homey with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early August and it was a cool escape from the heat at home in Charlotte. The cabin was better and bigger than the listing could really portray. Warm and rustic including an adorable bear theme, I also loved the family photos reminding us just how important family time is. Made some great memories roasting marshmallows at the fit pit, grilling dinner and playing games. We rafted the Nantahala and submerged ourselves in the frigid waters of Yellow Creek Falls. We did love coming back to the comfort of the cabin after a full day though. Owners are accommodating and readily available for any questions or concerns. A pleasure to work with. Plan on returning next chance we get. Thanks to the Ullrich family for their little gem at Sawyers Den.

One of our best family vacations!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVE this cabin in the mountains of North Carolina! The cabin had everything we could possibly need to spend a relaxing week with family. At the same time, we enjoyed so many activities that the area has to offer from hiking the surrounding trails, enjoying Lake Fontana and exploring everything the area has to offer! Jack and Sheila have provided a wonderful home away from home and we cannot wait for our return visit next year!

Great rustic cabin!

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, wonderful rustic cabin that is both charming and comfortable. We spent two weeks here with two boys (11 and 9) and have no complaints about the cabin itself. The Ullrichs take great care of the property, and the love is evident everywhere. We had many a pleasant nights sitting by the firepit telling stories, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, and just being away from it all. Just a wonderful rustic cabin in the woods.

One thing to note, though it should be obvious. This is a country cabin. If you need superfast and super reliable internet access, I wouldn't recommend this part of the country for you. Cell phone reception is going to be spotty at best. But for getting away from it all, that's actually a plus.

The only reason for not going 5 stars has little to do with the cabin itself, but with the surrounding area. We thought that there would be more to do, like hiking, mountain biking, water activities, etc., just from the cabin itself or close by. That is not the case. The trailheads, lakes, streams, etc. are all relatively far away (~30 min drive). If you're hiking this section of the Appalchian Trail, that trailhead is closer, but it's still a drive. So keep that in mind if you're thinking of doing a lot of outdoor activities in Joyce Kilmer or Nantahala.

Second, Graham County where Robbinsville is located, is a dry county. We didn't know that coming in. :) So make sure to pick up wine, beer, liquor, whatever on your way in.

Otherwise, enjoy yourselves in privacy, a great cabin with wonderful charming rooms, and a outdoor living space that will become the focus of your stay.

PS: The water is the best I've ever had. Just turn on the tap -- it'll taste just like expensive bottled water.
