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.

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.

Not happy at all with the stay ....

  • 2 of 5

The cabin was not real clean .. And there are no mats in the shower or tub ... My mother slipped and fell due to a very slick shower floor.... We also did not have gas for the grill ... And couldn't get into the cabin when we got there . We were given the wrong code for the door ..... I am not the kinda of person that does these kind of reviews but I was very disappointed ... Especially for the price we had to pay to stay there .....

Owner's Response: We go to great lengths to ensure that are guests have a great experience, and we are sorry that you did not. To address the issues, our cabin is professionally cleaned and our housecleaner takes great pride in her work - she was quite upset when she learned of these comments. However, even before this review, she informed us that the guests left our home in a horrible condition - trash left in the unit, cigarette ashes and butts dropped everywhere, cabin smelling of smoke, and an animal onsite - all requiring 2 extra hours to clean. Prior to their stay, we sent the guests an email with our new door code, but they either did not receive it, or did not take note of the change - we apologize for that. We provide everything from linens to dishes, to towels to floor mats - not sure how the mats were missed in the cabinet, but again, we can only apologize for the inconvenience. They were correct regarding the gas for the grill - they called us on a Sunday evening when the tank emptied, at which time we tried to reach our local housekeeper (who was not home). We immediately called our guests back, apologized for the inconvenience, and informed them that we would not be able to refill the tank until the next day, but directed them to a local convenience store just up the road that provided tank refills (for which we would gladly reimburse them the cost). Apparently they chose not to make the exchange. We suppose that this review will go both ways - these guests will choose not stay with us again, nor will we ever allow them to. In our 15 years of providing vacation housing, this is the first instance where our guests were so unhappy, and our housekeeper so disgusted with the way our unit was left. We are truly sorrow for the unsatisfactory experience.

Delightful cabin

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Sawyer's Den. It's a comfortable and pleasant place to stay, in a lovely setting. It's a short trip from Fontana Village for anyone attending events there, and it's far more economical if you're sharing the cabin. Since we were there for a car event, we appreciated that there's a hose with water in the parking area. The one beef is that the wifi was nearly unusable. We had to restart it hourly, and that's a problem when you're staying somewhere with no cell service. But they're responsive folks, so I'm sure they'll handle that once they read this review.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments - we're sorry that the wifi was not working properly during your stay. We had the system rebooted and it is working well again. Thanks again for your response, and thanks for taking care of our place! Jack & Sheila

Peaceful place

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay for people who enjoy calm and scenic area. Everything is there and very clean.

The only problem we had was that the wrong door code was provided. We had to try different combinations during 20 minutes to finally had some luck and find the good one.

Great time! Perfectly located between Fontana Dam and NOC.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time! We all spent the first night at the cabin... very fun. Beds were really comfortable and the cabin had everything we needed. The next morning my wife and 11-yr old daughter dropped my 14-yr old son and I off at NOC for our AT hike to Fontana Dam. Meanwhile, my wife and daughter spent time at the cabin, day hiking with our two Shih Tzus, gem mining, visiting the Stecoah Arts Center... really enjoyed themselves! Three days later, they pick us up at Fontana Dam... great backpacking trip on the AT! Perfect backpacking weather. Then all of us spent a night together at the cabin. My wife really enjoyed the porch swing. We all had a great spring break! Thank you so much for sharing your cabin with us.
