The words “Breathtaking View” will come to mind as you enjoy the ever changing scenery from bluish mists clinging to the mountainsides to mirroring sunrises on the lake below.

This is the closest rental cabin to the Tail of the Dragon at Deal’s Gap! Tip of the Dragon Retreat is just 1/4 mile from one of the most famous driving roads in the country whether you come roaring in on your Harley or sporting in with your Mini Cooper.

There is a beautiful drive heading west from Robbinsville as you meander along the shore of Lake Santeetlah and then wind through the mountains alongside the Cheoah River all the way to the dam at Lake Cheoah with lake views up the hill to the cabin.

During your stay you can catch up on your reading, play board games or simply relax and enjoy the view. But if you are looking for excitement there is white water rafting and kayaking on Cheoah and Nantahala River, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casino, Maggie Valley, nature and wildlife at Cades Cove, swimming and boating on Lake Santeetlah & Fontana or take a drive to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge for a fun filled day.
