Description of the Robbinsville vacation home rental
Nestled in the Nantahala National Forest, and in the southern shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, you'll find "Jimbo's Farm." It's a 53 acre retreat that includes a 105 year-old restored Farm House, trout pond, and mountain stream running through the entire property.

Area Information

When one visits the towering mountains of Graham County, they are
reminded of those early days when the Scotch-Irish settlers first came
to the Appalachian M mountains of western North Carolina . Little has
changed; most of Graham County is still a wilderness with over 60%
being a part of the Nantahala National Forest and over 10,000 acres
designated as the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and Joyce Kilmer -Slick Rock
Wilderness Areas . The Memorial Forest was dedicated in 1936 to honor the poet Joyce Kilmer. Here one can hike through a forest of primeval
beauty ... an original growth forest where it takes five or six men to
reach around the girth of one of the giant poplars or hemlocks.
Nestled in an undergrowth of mountain laurel and rhododendron, you will get a picture of times past when only the native Cherokee Indians called these mountains home.

Today, the population of Graham County is less than 8,000. Robbinsville,
the County Seat has less than 800 residents. We are rural in nature and
far from the beaten path. We do not have some of the conveniences one
finds in the metropolitan areas of this country, but we do have an
abundance of those life qualities that city dwellers can only dream
about. We have clean air and pure water as there is no polluting
industry within miles of Graham County. Our mountain streams
feature an abundance of trout. Santeetlah and Snowbird Creeks, both flowing into Lake Santeetlah, have national reputations as being great southern trout fishing streams. The 2,800 acre Lake Santeetlah has held the state
record for both walleyed pike and large mouth bass. Fontana Lake ,
bordering the Great Smokey Mountains National Park , is also well known
to anglers as a great fishery.

Our natural scenery is breath taking. With over 100,000 acres of
National Forest one can ride or hike to mountain tops rising above 5,000
feet in elevation, or enjoy the serene beauty a mountain steam as it
meanders through a rich green valley. Drive to the top of Hooper Bald,
(elevation 5400 feet ), by way of the scenic Cherohala Skyway for
inspiring vistas of the place we call home. Or visit the nearby
Nantahala Gorge where whitewater sports abound.

As if our beautiful mountain environment was not enough, we have been
blessed to have the Gem of the Smokies at our doorstep, Lake
Santeetlah. Santeetlah has approximately 80 miles of shoreline of which 80%
is a part of the Nantahala National Forest . This 2800 acre mountain lake was
constructed in 1928 and is surrounded by nature at her best. Water
levels on Santeetlah are regulated year round for recreation with winter
levels lowered a maximum of only five feet. With so much of the
shoreline being within the boundary of the National Forest, this lake
will never be crowded. Only a few will be fortunate enough to be
property owners on this beautiful lake. If fishing, boating, skiing, or
just drifting around on a pontoon boat appeals to you, you will love
Lake Santeetlah , a premi''' re location in the southeast for resort home
ownership and summer vacations.

To the north, Graham County is bordered by the Great Smoky Mountains
National Forest . Our western boundary is the Cherokee National Forest
in Tennessee . To our east is the Nantahala River and Nantahala National
Forest. T o the south lies the Snowbird Mountains of the Nantahala
National Forest . We are about a 2.5 hour drive North of Atlanta; about
1.5 hours South of Knoxville; and about 1.5 hours West of Asheville.

Yes, we are off the beaten path. As a matter of fact, because of our
mountain terrain, commercial traffic is routed around Graham County .
Yet the rugged Appalachian Trail runs directly through the middle of our
county. These facts give you an idea of what we believe to be important.
This is a place where the heritage of the Cherokee and early Scotch-Irish settlers runs deep.

Visit our towering mountains, original growth forest, deep green valleys
& and use the crystal clear lakes and streams of Smoky Mountain Country.
Build for yourself a mountainside villa or a lakefront chalet. It can
all be yours! Enjoy it with your family and above all else protect it;
for this is our heritage, and a wonderful legacy for future

All the Best. Jim Kalamasz
