About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This 3500 sq ft secluded cabin is ideal for your family getaway or a special retreat with that someone special.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a farmhouse table that seats six, and a pub table that seats four - that can be used as a game table as well.

Enjoy a breathtaking mountain/lake view from the deck while drinking your coffee or grilling, while the kids play.

If you are seeking hiking, biking, boating, fishing, scenic driving, nature photography, motorcycling, whitewater rafting, or vacationing, you will find a full array of natural destinations, quaint shops and the rich history of North Carolinas most remote county!

Graham County takes pride in it's rich heritage, local crafting, mountain music and dancing. Included in our heritage is the original people of the area, the Cherokee Nation which has an even older history.

Tail of the Dragon - 20 minutes from Cabin

Crossing Deals Gap at the Tennessee/North Carolina state line, the Dragon is considered by many as one of the world's best motorcycling and sports car roads. Anyone looking for an exciting highway adventure will enjoy this stretch of US 129.

Whitewater Adventures - 20 minutes from Cabin

The western North Carolina mountains offer some of the best whitewater rafting/paddling rivers on the east coast. The Nantahala River, only a 20-minute drive from our cabin, is one of the most popular. This Class I, II, and III river is the perfect place for the entire family to have a taste of this exciting sport.

About Virginia Acord

David and I own Southern Heritage Woodworks in Sylvester, Georgia. (Google us if you would like more information on our company or products.) We manufacturer flooring and furniture out of reclaimed wood salvaged from old textile mills built prior to the 1920's. We have three boys, 26 21, and 19.

Why Virginia Acord chose Robbinsville

We love to spend time at our cabin to relax and just get away from everyday life. We especially enjoy our time during the Fourth of July. All of our family travels up and we grill and go boat riding, tubing and wake boarding on Fontana Lake. The water is as clear as spring water and still refreshing in July and best of all is not crowded.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the seclusion of our cabin. We have the privacy and tranquility of sitting on the deck, drinking our coffee and enjoying nature.

The cabin was wonderful. Plenty of room, amazing views and the owners were great to work with.

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time. The cabin was beautiful. Plenty of room for everyone. Virginia was so helpful! The views were amazing. We had excellent weather the whole week. We saw 2 bears, one right down the driveway, elk, deer, rabbits and lizards. The Dragon's tail ride was something else. Fontana Dam was very interesting and we rode through Fontana Village. We checked out the marina too. All very close by and the views of Fontana Lake on the way there were awesome. The water was beautiful. We love the mountains, the park, the Grist Mill, Cades Cove, shopping in Pigeon Forge. Deep Creek tubing was amazing also. The water was cold but refreshing and the kids loved all the rocks. The sights and sounds of the waterfalls was very relaxing while walking along the path. We sat out on the porch and played dominoes and watched as a boat would go by every now ans then. Very relaxing. There was something for everyone.

My favorite retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stay there every year for MINIS on The Dragon. It's the perfect place for a large group to go in together on, and the sunrise over the lake is amazing! Looking forward to returning next year!

Beautiful views and house!

  • 5 of 5

We mountain biked and hiked many trails in the area and also drove a few hours southeast to white water raft the Chattooga River. House was beautiful and stocked with the essentials. We enjoyed grilling and relaxing on the deck with the beautiful view of the lake. We would definitely recommend the house!

Perfect place for groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 stayed at the Acord cabin this March for about 5 days. Everyone in our group loved this house so much, none of us wanted to go back home when it was time to leave. The house is extremely spacious, clean, and well stocked with everything we needed. We were able to make full meals and desserts at the house with no problems. We had so much extra space, we ended up spending a few hours one night playing hide and seek and kept ourselves busy for a long time. The only downfall was that the house was far from most things. Everything was 30+ minutes away. Luckily we didn't need to leave the house very often and only went out to eat once at Lynn's Place in town. This house is in good proximity to NOC, which is fantastic as well. The view was so amazing, and we even got to see snow a few times while we were there. The road up to the cabin is not nearly as intimidating as it seems, I drove up in my 2wd Chevy Cruze and was more than fine, even in the dark. We saw deer, wild turkey, and what we believe to be a beaver or an otter around the property. A few of us took a trail we found down to the lake (not actually sure if this is a trail, it was very steep and required some climbing to get back up) and we found lots of mica and some quartz down by the water. Although it was pretty cold outside, we were able to leave the heat off and stay nice and warm inside the house. Virginia was very responsive and accommodating. I can not say enough good things about our stay.

The property was perfect for our 3 family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very spacious and clean. We drove in at night. When we woke up the next morning we had a surprise of 2" of snow on the ground already and a beautiful view of the lake below which we couldn't see in the dark. We went down to Bryson City to take in the mountain town feel and ride the Polar Express. I would definitely recommend this cabin for large families or big get togethers. We will be back!

Big groups should stay here.

  • 4 of 5

There was only one issue, and Virginia was very good to deal with. She made all attempts to keep this issue at bay, but sometimes these things happen. She rescheduled our stay due to the passing of my father. To unite with my friends in this cabin was therapy, and it served us all great. The view of Fontana is superb, and there aren't many homes with this view on this Lake. The home was clean and stocked nicely. She was also kind enough to mail my wife her fit bit that had fallen on the floor and forgotten. We will be returning.
