Description of the Robbinsville vacation cabin rental
Sweetwater Cabin is located in the Nanatahala National forest in the Great Mountains where clean air and pure mountain water greet you! It is high on a mountainside (approximately half way up) and the last cabin on a private driveway, surrounded by lush and dense forest offering the ultimate in privacy.
The cabin has two bedrooms - one with a king-size bed the other with 2 twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king.
This newly-renovated cabin has a fully equipped kitchen including coffee maker, espresso maker, toaster, microwave, stove, oven, crock pot, refrigerator, dishwasher, dishes, table ware, pots and pans, washer and dryer. There is a picnic table and charcoal grill for out-door cooking. Bathroom and bedroom linens are provided. The only things you need to bring are your personal items, food and any CD's, DVD's or Video tapes; Direct TV is furnished.


An extra-large covered front porch with rocking chairs and wooden porch swing await your arrival. It's the perfect place to relax and renew any time of the day or night.

The Robbinsville library just behind the elementary school accommodates visitor computer usage and quick connections on their numerous computers and has Wi-Fi as does McDonalds and Wendys; call or drive by to check their hours.

Area Information
All of the roadways in and around this area are in great condition and offer scenic views around every curve, hill and valley traveling from any direction. Located in Graham County, Robbinsville is a small town with somewhat limited shopping; larger towns are only 30-40 minutes away. Graham is a dry county so any alcoholic beverages need to be brought with you; Biltmore is a local wine and can be found in grocery stores and Walmart in other counties.

Generally speaking the dress is very casual, humidity low, and temperature close to perfect most days and nights in the spring, summer and fall. Winter days are chilly and the powdery snows breathtaking. It's never too early to make reservations for the fall when the leaves are at their peak and the apples at their best. Spontaneous vacations are sometimes the best!! Call us for availability - we offer two-night minimums.


The Cherohala Skyway is destined to be the next Wonder of the World! The Skyway connects Robbinsville NC and Tellico Plains TN.

Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Asheville's Biltmore House and Harrah's Casino in Cherokee make pleasant day-trips from the cabin.

The Nanatahala Forest and River offer something for everyone. Exhilarating White Water, picnic by the river, walks in the forest and elegant dining.

There is also river rafting with guides available to accommodate any level. The Cheoah River and the Ocoee River both offer a challenging White Water adventure!

The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and Slickrock area give a view into what the eastern Woodlands were like before man discovered timber. Walk among virgin timber and some of the world's largest Tulip Poplars here. Don't miss this adventure!

The infamous Tail of the Dragon! The name says it all. Quite a ride on a motorcycle or in a car!!

Cherokee, NC is the home of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. It is about a 40 minute drive from Robbinsville and Harrah's Casino is easy to find.

John C Cambell Folk School offers classes and demonstrations in rural and mountain life. They have wonderful shows, too!

The Stecoah Valley Center

The Gleanings Foundation

Owner Supplied Testimonials

I've just returned from a two-week stay at Sweetwater and enjoyed it very much. The cabin is quite large and while rustic it has nice touches like dishwasher, good cookware and table wear, and bed linens. The front porch is extraordinary and I loved watching the beautiful sunsets from the porch swing. I will definitely go back in the fall!
