DESCRIPTION

On a ridgetop at 3600 feet elevation, Misty Laurel Chalet has a beautiful view of Lake Nantahala (which is at 3000' elevation) 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!

Love Misty Laurel

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Misty Laurel! Pat is wonderful and had great communication with us from planning answering all of our questions and taking time to talk to us before we rented through end of stay. The house was clean and comfortable with all amenities one could need from a crock-pot's to Chromecast on the TV's. We only had to bring our food and sense of adventure. The view from the chalet was incredible we were even treated with a lightening storm one night that was unbelievable. We enjoyed our coffee on the porch in the morning and cocoa around the fire pit at night. On Wayah Road the main road off of the mountain there were multiple waterfalls along the river and tons to explore locally. The guys went fishing with Dale for a day and the girls in search of yet more waterfalls on an adventurous drive to the Highlands. We had a great time horseback riding at the Nantahala Village Stables which was amazing- they had a very friendly staff and the horses were well trained and well kept! It snowed right before we got there so we got to make a mini snowman with the kids and a few snowballs may have been thrown. Only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! Would love to return in warmer weather and try white water rafting.

Memorable Experience

  • 5 of 5

I've rented placed various times and I have to say that this has the best experience. Pat, the owner, was very helpful, accommodating and pleasant to work with during my stay. As a matter of fact, he was in Italy when I arrived at Misty Laurel and he called me to make sure that everything was okay. His directions to the the place were very helpful especially since I rely a lot on Google maps.

I traveled with my son and my Golden retriever and the house was just spectacular. It was everything I expected and more. I've been to places where the owner has signs and notes posted on every room. This was not the case. I felt right at home and spent five glorious days, enjoying Misty Laurel. The view from the house was spectacular, and I woke up every morning looking at the mountains and the lake. The view from the top floor bedroom allowed you to look over from bed and see it (just as in the pictures). I enjoyed coffee and wine on the balcony and took in the smells and the sounds of nature. My seventeen year old son enjoyed cable and especially Wifi. I liked that the deck would close completely, so I felt comfortable, having my dog outside. I cooked all our meals and the house had everything I needed to prepare them. We used Pat's suggestions to visit various places in the area, including Cullajasa Falls and Wayah Bald. We also visited various waterfalls in Franklin/Highlands. I hope to go back to Misty Laurel one day, in the summer so we can enjoy the lake and the river activities. Thank you, Pat for sharing your home with us.

Misty Laurel

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Misty Laurel was wonderful. The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our surprise getaway. We traveled around the beautiful area and left with some amazing photographs. The only thing I would change would be the length of our stay as I could have spent an entire month in this cabin. I can't wait to go back and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this great review! It was a pleasure being your "co-conspirator" in helping arrange your husband's surprise birthday weekend! I'm glad it worked out so well and I genuinely am looking forward to your coming back again soon for a longer visit. Best regards! Pat

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
