Overview

Lake Santeetlah House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Lake Santeetlah, the 'Secret of the Smokies'. Those of you who have visited before know how true this is! Discover 'the secret' and plan your getaway now. This pristine lake is nestled in the smoky mountains with 80 mile of shoreline, 90% of which is protected National Forest.

This home was recently renovated and boasts a new kitchen, bathroom and professionally decorated interiors. Relax in the cozy living room in front of the huge stone fireplace and plasma TV, or open the French doors to the huge, carpeted, screened porch that hangs over the water, and take in the amazing view. The 2 bedrooms are beautifully made-up with fine linens.

Your private dock is just 10 gentle steps from the house. Walk right into the crystal clear lake from the beach or jump off the dock for some fun! You can tie up your own boat, rental, or use our canoe to paddle around the serene coves! This property is located on Thunderbird Mountain, the most desired location on the lake!

We look forward to your visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved it! Your cottage is so comfortable-felt right at home. Peaceful views of lake. Enjoyed making fires in the evening. We had a great family vacation-hiking, canoeing, and playing games. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us. Would love to come back.

A truly wonderful and memorable trip

  • 5 of 5

This had to be one of our best vacations ever, and certainly the busiest. We traveled a lot, but really enjoyed returning to the cottage, which felt more like home. It was beautiful, comfortable and practical in every sense. We also lucked out with the weather and were able to grill and eat outside almost every evening. We also managed to squeeze some fishing in as well. The owners were a true pleasure to work with and, God willing, we will most assuredly be returning here. Oh, I should also mention he cottage was exactly like the pictues, VERY clean and I would highly recommend it to one and all.

Cozy and relaxing cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I love this cottage on the lake! It is the perfect place to escape for a long weekend or week. The décor is lake chic and so very comfortable. It's very clean, well maintained and just plain cozy. The screened is porch is where you'll live--because this lake is stunning. Truly a best kept secret of lakes. It is a dry town so be sure to bring plenty of your own wine.

Not as advertised!

  • 1 of 5

First of all, the description of this property fails to mention that there are 27 steps, some of them steep, to get down the hill to the house. Definitely an issue older adults or for anyone dealing with even minor orthopedic issues. Aside from that, the description is really misleading. It may be charming to some, but it is definitely not 'upscale', and definitely not 'recently renovated'. The 'new' bathroom was not only dirty, but tiles were coming up off the floor. The 'new' kitchen is not as big as a walk-in closet. Several light bulbs were burned out. It would have been nice to sit out on the deck - but both deck chairs were broken - and the furniture on the screened porch was stained and dirty-looking. As for the TV, bring plenty of DVD's, or a cable for streaming from a computer, since there are only about 7 real channels available.

The only thing really accurate about the description of this house is the number of rooms, the location and the view.

Owner's Response: I have spoke directly with this guest so I don't need to bore those reading this with responses to light bulbs, TV stations, etc...All I can say is there are some people you just can't make happy! Please read our 33 other 5 star reviews for the true picture. Our other cottage #169953 is maintained by the same caretaker, all 5 star reviews as well. We want all our guests to be happy and to please let us know if something (like a broken deck chair) needs attention. Like any home things happen. This one star review is ridiculous and unfair!

Nice and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week at this cottage. It is very cute and charming. We absolutely LOVED the screened porch and spent all of our evenings sitting out there. This place is great for fishing and kayaking. We used the grill a lot. Just be prepared that the fridge and stove are not full size. We just used our coolers to keep drinks cold. I highly recommend this place for a quiet get-away. If you like adult beverages, bring your own as this is a DRY county. Be sure to walk the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. It is beautiful. Leann and Suzette are very helpful and accommodating.

Owner's Response: We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the cottage and took advantage of the beautiful area. We hope you can return! A note to those reading this review...the stove and refrigerater are apartment size. The stove has 4 burners and an oven, the refrigerator is your normal freezer on top. Both adequate for your needs during your stay.

Great kayaking on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week on the lake. The owners were very kind to provide us with a couple of kayaks, and kayaking around the lake was magical. The lake is very quiet, and you get a great view of the mountains from the center of the lake. We also hiked at Joyce Kilmer and around Fountana Village.

The cottage is tiny, but clean and nice, just perfect for our get-away-as a couple - vacation.

Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to get away and truly unwind. Cottage was sweetly decorated (no kitschy trout lamps;) and comfortable. Throughly enjoyed our stay, especially spending time on the screened in porch overlooking the water. Note: bring paper toiletry items. Highly recommend for a relaxing getaway.
