We are Floridians that fell in love with the serenity of the mountains and lake Nantahala - its an undiscovered gem - beautiful and peaceful

Bill Shields purchased this house in 2003

The location is unique, high elevation , clear clean lake, national forests surrounds half the lake, not a lot of boat traffic, close to whitewater rafting and hiking areas. There are very few pest bugs at this elevation. It is always 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta!

Lakefront with private boat dock. Use of canoe.

Awesome retreat, Secluded

This vacation rental is awesome. It is a hidden gem up in the mountains on a super quiet lake. We rented a pontoon boat for the Fathers Day weekend and I was a little leary on how crowded it would be-well the most we saw the whole weekend at one time was six motorcraft on the water. The water is very peaceful and calm. The house is decorated very nicely and there were lots of stocked necessities. It is a distance to a store so stock up on supplies before getting in as once you are in you will never want to leave.Kids and spouses did whitewater rafting and zip lining and had a ball. The girls did a jeep tour that showed some beautiful country and the first place he went to was Lake Nantahala! Only one complaint was one too soft, dip in the middle mattress. Had a new grill delivered while there which was really nice. On the grill- its NOT gas. As a extended family vacation group we seldom repeat our location but this is one place we would return to.

Back again to Driftwood Cove

  • Submitted: Sep 24, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
This is our 2nd summer vacationing at Driftwood Cove and we will be back again next year for sure! We enjoy the location and comfort of the house. Our kids love the lake they just spend hours swimming and boating. The home is well maintained and the kitchen has a lot of items to cook with. This year we went tubing at Deep Creek and had a great time. Also went zip lining . Spent an afternoon in Highlands enjoying the restaurants and antique shops. No cell phone coverage at house but we like that ! place does have wifi , didnt want to go back to reality of everyday life,,,, but all vacations must end.

Peaceful retreat

We spent a week at Driftwood Cove and wished we had booked 2! The location of the home is perfect, directly on the lake. We enjoyed waking up and drinking our coffee outside on the porch, just taking in the view of the lake and the mountains. The kids played on the lake all day. We took the canoe across the lake to the rope swing and had a blast. We fished off the dock, and feed the ducks in the cove. We rented a boat from Lakes end and explored the lake - we found a waterfall and hiking trails. We planned some day trips - went whitewater rafting on Nantahala and tubing at Deep Creek. Overall a great week just went by too fast- would definitely go back.

Your Lake House was very comfortable and clean. We had 3 familes stay, 13 of us. It was my Husbands 40th Birthday and had a Great Time. We rented a boat and went tubing, the kids fished and went on the rope swing, took walks every night. It was a Relaxing get away. I liked the basement for the kids hangout, The Adults had down time, great lay out. Thank You Karen for letting us use your home we will be back.
