About Robbi Peirce

Originally from Florida my husband and I spend as much time in North Carolina as our schedule permits! With four children, we are constantly on the move enjoying all outdoor activities - especially water-related! Rafting is a favorite for all of us and we go so frequently that we finally bought our own raft!

Robbi Peirce purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Robbi Peirce chose Robbinsville

We have been coming to the mountains of North Georgia and Western Carolina since I was in High School and vowed one day to have a place of our own! We have enjoyed all of the local bluegrass hoe downs, Stecoah Valley Center performances, mountain fairs and celebrations and especially the friendly people of North Carolina! The pristine weather keeps us coming back for summer fun, the beautiful fall seasonal change and sometimes snow in the winter!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoying an early cup of coffee on our deck while watching the Hummingbirds feed is the perfect way to start off the day! We love looking at the distant mountains, watching the sunset and listening to all of the mountain sounds! We spend lots of time at Lake Fontana with our 3 boys visiting waterfalls, rock jumping, tubing, picnicing and camping. White water rafting and tubing is a must just 20 minutes away!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As the owner of Little Elk Nob Lodge, I thought I would share with you our Leaf Viewing Trip last week. We flew into Asheville and had an easy early afternoon drive to the cabin. Although the leaves were just beginning to turn in Asheville, we enjoyed the drive, watching the burst of colors get brighter and brighter as we closed in on Robbinsville. The drive through Stecoah Valley was infused with colored canopied trees over the road which continued up to our cabin. Our first order of business was to relax on the deck and enjoy the colorful mountains in our view. I highly suggest the drive through the Smoky Mountains National Park (Cherokee) particularly this time of the year. The windy roads are ripe with some of the best fall leaf color in our area, and we were not disappointed! Taking 441 through Newfound Gap toward Gatlinburg was breathtaking. We, like all the other "peepers", used the 2 land pull offs to take in the fresh mountain air while snapping endless photographs of the colorful scenery. Although Gatlinburg is very "touristy", we found the Smoky Mountain Brewery just off the main road and had the BEST chicken wings ever! We purchased some Christmas gifts at the NOC (Nantahala Outdoor Center) and walked the streets! If you have the opportunity to go for a nice dinner, I highly recommend Snowbird Mountain Lodge which is located on the scenic Cherohala Skyway. The views of the mountains are spectacular year round and the Fireside Bar is very romantic! The food is pricey, but definitely worth the splurge. Cuddling up to the outdoor enclosed gas fire pit is worth the drive. Watching rafters and kayakers is always a treat at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City, a 20 minute drive from the cabin. Their local crafted brews are very popular and Wesser's BBQ & Grill or River's End Restaurant serves up decent food along the Nantalaha River. Our recommendation, is EXPLORE, EXPLORE, EXPLORE!! Have a great trip.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was beautiful and so were the views. Stayed for seven days and had a wonderful time.

There is lots to do in the area.There are some really nice places to shop in Bryson City.

The Smoky Mountain Railway was a lot of fun. We took the Moonshine Express for adults only

and it was awesome. I really had a wonderful time and hope to go back soon.

Great big beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

We, my husband, stepmom and two kids, 10 and 12 had a great time in the cabin.

The house is beautiful and the view is as shown in the pictures. There is a lot of space and wevenjoyed the barbecue as well as the fireplace. The sleeping sofa downstairs works perfectly fine and the kids had their own " suite" downstairs. Robin was very helpful and we enjoyed doing a hike on the Appalachian trail and water rafting at the noc outdoor center. We had a great day doing tubing at the deep creek near bryson city. The railway trip is nice but don't expect too much of great views. Driving up to cherokee and oceanoluftree visitor center was very interesting too.

What a great house my wife and I enjoyed this past week in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love exploring and venturing into the Great Outdoors, and this house is situated perfectly for doing so. It's really close to amazing mountain biking, close to two spectacular Lakes for canoeing and fishing and swimming, the views from the house are lovely! Even though the house is perched high up on a hillside, believe it or not, you can still hear the motorcycles Down Below in the valley as they wind their way along Route 28. But other than that, you feel far removed and away from everything. The house is super clean, the beds are comfortable, and everything that you need for the week is there waiting for you, so you hardly have to bring anything other than your clothing and your food. The kitchen has great facilities, the internet works too good if you're trying to get away from civilization, and the hosts are so accommodating!

Simply Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful. Most places we have stayed, the pictures over sell the rental, not with this home. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of everything, furniture, knicknacs, kitchen utensils and bedding. You really dont feel like you are in a vacation rental, it feels like your good friends are letting you stay there while they are away. Great fireplace, windows everywhere, open floor plan. Very good WiFi and Direct TV. The deck and views are incredible. One of our favorite things was siting in rocking chairs having a drink at the end of the day, watching the shadows flow across the mountains.

The location is a good compromise of being in the woods and fairly close to activities and shopping. You feel like you are the only ones on top of a mountain. You can see a small part of another cabin a couple hundred yards away. Feels very private. We had a wonderful time going to Smokey Mtn National Park, hiking at Joyce Kilmer Forest, trout fishing, boating on Fontana and walking around Bryson City. We look forward to going back again.

It is our goal to provide our guests with all of the comforts of home so that you can enjoy your time exploring the glorious Smoky Mountains and relaxing at the end of the day with a magnificent view!
