Tucked away in the backwoods of the Nantahala National Forest in Robbinsville, sits one of the best tiny houses North Carolina offers. This secluded tiny house rental in a unique setting, which is perfect for a romantic trip for two. Guests will venture down a remote uneven gravel dirt road until they reach this lovely 400-square-foot tiny house, which overlooks a noisy boulder-filled brook trout creek and boasts views of a mountain ridge in the distance. The cabin is 2 miles from any paved road. Vehicles need five inches clearance. The road can be icy in the winter, and motorcyclists should note that the cabin is on a gravel grade - the host suggests parking trailer 1 mile away at the neighbors'.

Inside the tiny house, there is one bedroom with a queen-size bed and a small closet with hangers provided. Basic necessities, such as linens, towels (1 per guest), soap, shampoo, two rolls of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels (guests should bring more if needed), and a hairdryer are provided. There is also a living room with a leather sofa, a leather recliner, and a flat-screen TV. A few board games, and books are provided. Next to the living room, the fully-equipped kitchen allows guests to whip up their own meals and includes a refrigerator, a freezer, a stove, an oven, a microwave, and a sink. Guests can eat meals at the kitchen table for two, or outside on the covered deck. Other amenities include heating, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and space heaters.

Outside, there is a covered deck with a barbecue and outdoor furniture, where guests can soak up the peace and serenity of the woodlands that surround the accommodation, as well as enjoy the calming sounds of the nearby trout stream. Guests should note that there is no cell service (landline provided) nor Wi-Fi at the tiny house. In town, the local cell phone provider is Verizon, and there is Wi-Fi at McDonald's. No smoking or incense burning in the cabin or out on the decks is allowed.

Nantahala National Forest is our backyard. Guests can adventure right outside the door, hike nearby Joyce Kilmer, "tame the dragon" or ride the "skyway" as the county has the best "twisties" for the motorcyclist or sports car enthusiast.

Guests are not required to bring their own towels or linens, as these are kindly provided by the host. There is free parking on the premises of this property. Additionally, hangers, a hairdryer, and basic toiletries are given to guests while glamping here.

Outside, guests can make meals on the gas barbecue and enjoy them on their private deck.
