About Virginia Acord
David and I own Southern Heritage Woodworks in Sylvester, Georgia. 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.

Excellent family getaway
Overall, our family had a wonderful trip. The home was more than large enough for 6 adults and 1 child and very well kept. View was fantastic. Fire pit became a fun nightly ritual, although the yard is small and is not suited for small kids playing outside due to the steep surrounding terrain. Speaking of which, the driveway is a long, steep, winding gravel road. It's in good condition, and is fine getting in and out with a normal car (I drive a Versa and didn't have a problem), but was quite a challenge for my dad pulling a boat behind his SUV. If you plan to bring a boat for your stay, you can rent a slip daily/weekly at Fontana Village Marina, which is what we ended up doing. The Marina is very nice, great staff, and about 25 minutes from the house. Virginia was very responsive to all our questions. Overall, it was a great trip and I would recommend this house for your family/group getaway!
Family Get away
This was a great location to spend a family vacation. Easy driving to multiple areas of interest.
Great place, serene, away from everything.
Our stay was great. My only complaint is that the house adds 30mins to all the main areas. It wasn’t clear from the map or description, but that could have easily have been me not looking well enough. At the same time, that distance made the place good for other reasons too.
The view is unbeatable
I had read reviews about the driveway and location and they were accurate. We had to leave a truck at the bottom as one rider was too intimidated to ride the motorcycle up or down. I was also very glad that we arrived while it was still light. That being said, it was nice being so close to The Dragon and the roads and scenery around the property are great.
The absolute best thing about the property is the view from the porch. We could not get enough of it. It was also great having the garage to park the bikes in overnight.
The downfalls (besides the driveway) is the kitchen chairs and deck furniture need replacing. Not a huge deal but just setting expectations.
Also, you are only supplied 1 roll of paper towels (we got a partial) and 1 roll of toilet paper per bathroom. For a whole week. We had to go into town (over 30 minutes away) to buy extra . That is something I would expect to be supplied unless you are using an excessive amount.
All in all, It was an amazing trip on some of the best motorcycle roads I have ever been on with amazing views from the porch. We overcame the driveway (they graded it partway through the trip), dealt with the furniture and purchased our own supplies. It was all worth it because of the area and the view.
Thank you for your review. It's very important to us to receive feedback on the property since we are only there twice a year.
Unfortunately, we were unaware that a critter had been chewing on the cushions until we arrived for the week if the 4th. They were replaced while we were there and we are in the process of purchasing dining room chairs.
Again, thank you for taking the time to review our property.
