About The Owner

Tim and Brenda Messick served as contractor and built their dream home in 2009 after searching multiple states for the perfect mountain lake accessible to Atlanta where they reside. They have two daughters and a beloved dog, Ralph, who love to escape to the mountains as often as they can.

Why The Owner chose Lake Nantahala

After spending the day with a local realtor, the Messicks knew that they wanted to purchase property on Lake Nantahala as no other lake compared in beauty and tranquility. For the next several years, they worked toward the goal of building a home where they could make lasting memories and spend quality family time with their children and friends.

Amazing house and hosts! Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for renting your beautiful home to us. It was exactly what we were looking for. The house had so many personal touches, beautifully decorated and so cozy and comfortable. The layout was perfect and plenty of room to spread out and super kid-friendly. We would go back in a heartbeat! I bet a summer vacation there would be a blast! It was too cold to enjoy the lake at this time of year but it didn't stop the kids from playing in the mud and jumping in! I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a vacation home in this area! Thank you again!

Amazing Lake House!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a house to rent on direct lake front to enjoy time with our family and this house was perfect! The house is absolutely amazing! It's beautifully decorated throughout and has wonderful amenities. It has a pool table and ping pong table, which my kids thoroughly enjoyed, and has a great space in the downstairs area for watching TV, etc. Very kid friendly. The lake is pristine, with crystal clear water and beautiful views. The house is situated on a nice cove on the lake, so you can safely swim and kayak right off the dock without having to worry about a lot of boat traffic. The area is fairly secluded so, even though we were there at peak time in the summer, the lake never felt crowded. We were able to tour the lake on the pontoon boat and take in the breathtaking views of the mountains. It was spectacular! This is truly a second home for the owners and it is clear they take a lot pride in their home and in keeping it immaculate. The owners were great in giving us directions, suggestions and advice. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend this home.

Perfect getaway for extended weekend!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time visiting the NC mountains and this time we wanted a home that sat directly on the water. After narrowing down from our vrbo choices, we selected this property on Lake Nantahala - and we were not disappointed! We chose mid October to visit to catch a glimpse of the colorful foliage. Although it was not peak time, the drive through the mountains was absolutely peaceful and beautiful and there was plenty of color to see. The home was amazing. The architecture, interior design and decoration are all A++. Everything we needed was provided. And the cleanliness was second to none. We wanted something secluded to be able to get away and be with nature and this home was perfect. At the same time, there were a few nearby neighbors which also made it feel safe. We enjoyed the outdoor grill, cooked smores on the firepit, spent lots of time fishing on the dock and kayaks, toured the lake and took in all the magnificent views from the pontoon boat. We also went on a couple short hiking trips at the nearby tower and trails. Definitely would rent this home again and highly recommend to anyone looking. Thank you again for opening your home to us!

Lake Nantahala Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was, by far, one of the best vacations we have ever had! We went with our three kids (14,12,9) and another family of five and we loved every minute of the vacation--we didn't want it to end. The house was perfect and Tim and Brenda were very helpful. We can't wait to go again next year!

Vacation week not available as owners stated

  • 1 of 5
Vacation planned for June 23-30 and owners stated dates were available (as shown on VRBO) and they were going to send out contract next day. 2 days passed by, and I received an email from owner stating dates were NOT available and owner stated: "I had been in touch with another family who expressed interest, I sent all the info and followed up but didn’t hear back for a few weeks, and I just received their agreement and full payment." Owner also stated they send out multiple contracts, because not all families follow up. Owners also mentioned they were going to take down their dart board (after hearing I had teenagers) and were very adamant about not "rough-housing" in their home. I totally understand this, but the owner was very paranoid. Well, a good thing came out of this, because we found a gorgeous vacation home which had a last-minute cancellation.

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Absolute perfection!

We have rented many vacation homes and this is by far the best. Clean, open and spacious. Our son and his family just spent the middle week of October and the views of the lake as well as the fall colors were gorgeous. The vacation was very relaxing and our families had plenty of room to be together but also had privacy and space with the different levels. A very clean and beautifully decorated home that has a wonderful personal feel. The decks are the perfect place for morning coffee and reading a good book. We had several lively games of ping pong and pool and I rarely saw the TVs turned on – too many fun things to do instead. The perfect place for quiet and peaceful walks. Brenda and Tim go the extra mile to make sure their guests are comfortable, are always available for questions, and they provide a vacation rental that is so much better than we could have imagined.
