Our family just spent a week at this cabin and it was fantastic! The cabin is exactly as described. Morning coffee on the back deck listening to the creek below was very relaxing. We definitely took advantage of the lodge/lake amenities. Fishing, canoeing, jet skiing. We found rope swings on the lake that the kids loved. The waterfalls were beautiful. We relaxed by the pool--even had a bear cross the road in front of us on the way back to the cabin. Whitewater rafting on the Nantahala river was so much fun. The owners and Sundog Rentals were great to deal with. I would definitely recommend staying here.
