We welcome you to rejuvenate and recreate at our Nantahala retreat. Enjoy the natural silence of a secluded mountain home yet be less than 2 miles from the rafting/kayaking Mecca of The Nantahala Outdoor Center which has water activities for every skill level, outfitters store, and restaurants! Ten minutes down the road you’ll find some of the nations best mountain biking at Tsali recreation area. Moments from your door is one of the most beautiful trails in the smoky mountains, an old section of the Appalachian Trail where kids can hunt salamanders and build rock dams in a pristine creek and the energetic can hike to the Wesser Bald fire tower for an astounding view.
If outdoor adventure is not your cup of tea, you’ll find this light and spacious house offers a library of books and movies and both covered and open decks for taking in the view, spotting mountain bluebirds, or watching the fireflies dance in the field below. Kids (and the young at heart) will enjoy the ping pong table downstairs and the Gem Mine just half a mile away. Many families enjoy a picnic by the Nantahala River while they watch the excitement of kayaks and rafts running through the Nantahala Falls. Our family loves to swim in nearby Fontana Lake and if Lake boating is your pleasure, leave your boat at the local Almond Boat Dock or rent one of theirs!
Our peaceful three level home has plenty of space to spread out and with so many area attractions and activities many folks return year after year. We look forward to sharing our special place with you.
Was one of the earliest employees hired by The Nantahala Outdoor Center in 1974. I have always enjoyed the recreational opportunities in this part of the country.
As an employee of the NOC I was aware of the the tremendous draw and appeal of this region. I bought the land in 1976 and the house was built in 2000. Our family continues to enjoy the area on occasion and we are delighted to be able to share it with you.
The most obvious benefit is the close proximity to the NOC, 1.8 miles. We are also only minutes from Tsali with the mountain bike trails and Fontana Lake with boating from the Almond boat docks.
