DESCRIPTION

On a ridgetop at 3600 feet elevation, Misty Laurel Chalet has a beautiful view of Lake Nantahala and the Smoky Mountains. It's a great place to escape the Low Country heat as it's 15-20 degrees cooler than at sea level in the South and it's often breezy. Imagine awakening to a gorgeous view of the lake and then taking a brisk walk thru a lovely forest with crisp, clean air. In fact, Robert Redford just filmed 'A Walk in the Woods' nearby, at Wayah Bald, based upon the book of the same name by Bill Bryson (to be released in 2015). The film's aerial videos were shot by the same video crew who did the videography for our Visit Misty Laurel YouTube video!

Misty Laurel is spacious - 2400 square feet - with two living areas, both equipped with flat screen TVs, DirecTV HD satellite receivers & DVD players, in addition to three bedrooms, so the kids can entertain themselves downstairs while the adults enjoy themselves upstairs. There's also an extra dining table, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker downstairs, so that increases the privacy options. Take a look at the floorplan illustrations below.

For ADVENTURE SEEKERS: check out the Area Attractions on our supplemental website at www.mistylaurel. com for information about horseback riding, ziplining, whitewater rafting, biking, fishing and hiking.

We are again offering a FREE half-day pontoon boat rental at Lake's End Marina or a FREE half-day guided fishing trip with Dale Raxter of Nantahala Guide Service with rentals of at least a week in duration! For many of our previous guests, these excursions have been among the most memorable highlights of their visits to Misty Laurel. Lake Nantahala is spectacular and there's no better way to see it than from a boat. Dale is a life-long Nantahala resident and will regale you with his tales as a park ranger and tracker!

About Patrick Greany

Pat and Jo are, respectively, a retired scientist (biologist) and educator (Spanish & French). Our puppy, Mitzi, a miniature poodle, loves being at Misty Laurel!

Why Patrick Greany chose Lake Nantahala

We love to get away from the heat and humidity of Florida (Tallahassee) and Misty Laurel Chalet at Lake Nantahala is a great place to cool off and have fun!

What makes this cabin unique

While it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we still need to be able to keep in touch. DSL internet access provides for this need, so we can still fulfill our obligations as consultants, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I justed wanted to let you know what a fabulous time Mike and I had staying at the Misty Laurel Chalet. The scenery was breath-taking and waking up in the mornings was like being in the clouds. The facilties we great as well. Once we got there, we felt like just staying and not even taking in the sights - although we did - and it was great to find out there were so many activities just around the corner of the mountain (kayaking, horseback riding, fishing and boating!). Thank you so much for telling us about the Chalet. We look forward to using it again!! It was a very relaxing and memorable stay!

What an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5
We went up to Lake Nantahala with some friends that were in nearby cabins for a week. We had an absolutely amazing time and mostly because this cabin was a true home or us for the week. It was by far one of the best appointed cabins we have ever stayed in (and we frequent cabins 2-3 time a year). There was nothing that was missing! Everything was super clean and very updated...Patrick was a shear delight to work with the whole time! He even called us at the cabin when I emailed him a question! Mornings on the porch were amazing as you watched the lake, and hummingbirds feed off the many feeders. There were a ton of books to read which came in very handy for our one rainy day. You will not be disappointed with this gem! We will surely be back!

Misty Laurel Chalet

  • 5 of 5
This is an excellent home and a superb value. The home is clean, well maintained and well supplied. We spent a week with our family of six adults and four children and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed hiking to waterfalls, zip lining, fishing, rafting the Nantahala, and tubing the Oconoluftee, and just relaxing on the deck with a beautiful view. We also enjoyed some of the board games provided. The fishing day with Dale Raxter was a highlight.

The owner was very helpful to us in planning our events, and describing the home. We recommend this property to anyone wanting to vacation in a beautiful area with nearly unlimited activities for all ages.

Owner's Response: We are blessed with yet another highly complimentary review and we genuinely appreciate it! Our fishing guide buddy, Dale Raxter, will be glad to know your trip with him was a highlight of your stay! The Nantahala area is a special place, with fabulous scenery and wonderful, down-to-earth local folks, some (like Dale) are Native Americans. Thanks again for taking the time to comment on your stay. Best wishes, Pat

Exquisite accomodations!

  • 5 of 5
This has been the finest cabin we have stayed in over the last few years. The fixtures and appliances are high-end, the view is breathtaking, the house feels like a home rather than a rental. There were so many extras: baby gate (we needed it), recliners, big towels, coffee grinder, decent knives, excellent propane grill, canoe, 5 adirondack deck chairs, internet, 2 great TVs, and on and on. The driveway fit our 4 vehicles, and it wasn't frighteningly steep like other places we've rented. The Nantahala Outdoor Center was an easy drive for our rafting and zip-lining; the lake's little marina was even closer for our canoe/kayaking. Our group had 7 adults and a baby, but the house was spacious, with bathrooms on all 3 levels, so we never felt cramped. The main deck was our favorite spot - all of us could comfortably sit out there for morning coffee, or just to listen to the quiet! We took the advice of the owner and brought a cooler (for perishables) plus the bulk of our week's groceries, so that we avoided the 45-minute trip to town for food. It was a great vacation, and the perfect homecoming for our son, just returning from Afghanistan.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your family had a great time at Misty Laurel and in the Nantahala area! It is gratifying to know that it exceeded your expectations in every way!

I know this was a special occasion, with the return of your son from
Afghanistan, and that you'd been planning it for months.

We aim to make Misty Laurel a great setting in which to recover from stress and to enjoy being with friends and family, and I'm very happy to know we achieved this goal during your visit!

Beautiful mountain cabin!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in the mountains! We went for a family and friends vacation with eleven people, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The cabin and views are as beautiful as the pictures portray them. We hiked, went white water rafting and zip lining at the NOC, and went tubing at Deep Creek and Cherokee--both places are beautiful. Coffee on the deck in the morning was a wonderful way to wake up. The cooler weather was a nice change from the heat in Louisiana. A great place to get away! Thanks, Pat and Jo!

A fabulous mountain retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We went up with a group of other families to spend a week and escape the heat of Florida. We had an amazing time, the cabin was very clean and well appointed with everything we could possibly need...Patrick was a charm to work with and always responded quickly to any inquiries we had. We had full cell service the entire time a luxury when you are this high up in the mountains. There were brochures and print materials on things to do in the area that made it super easy to make any plans we needed. You can't go wrong with this cabin! Thank you for a great stay I'm sure we'll be back!

Spring Break Seclusion!

  • 5 of 5
As a rather last minute decision, we decided we needed some peace and quiet over Spring Break and, my daughter who is an expert on VRBO, found Misty Laurel......mmmmm, what a fantastic find! Myself and my five teenage children and small dog, headed to Lake Nantahala with high expectations, and we were not disappointed! Misty Laurel is a charming, spacious cabin, with stunning views over the Smokies. Everything that could make your stay more comfortable has been thought of and provided. The wrap around deck was delightful to spend time on, with coffee in hand, and the woods surrounding the property were a haven of discoveries for the children who spent hours exploring, climbing trees and collecting interesting rocks! We did not want to leave such a heavenly place, however we left with a promised to ourselves to return in the summer months when we could perhaps swim in the lake! Pat, the owner was fantastic to deal with, he was efficient, thoughtful, polite and thoroughly committed to ensuring our stay was a success. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: It's great to hear that you and your family had such a great time at Misty Laurel! I was glad the weather was very favorable too!

I hope you'll be able to return during the summer. It's a lot of fun to take out a pontoon boat from Lake's End or to go fishing with Dale Raxter and let him help you catch dinner, as well as tell you all about the history of the area. One other activity you might enjoy is gem mining at one of the facilities nearby. Thanks again for choosing Misty Laurel for your family getaway!
