Overview

Lake Nantahala Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12-16

This 3,600 square foot, luxury, vacation home is nestled in the Smoky Mountains on Lake Nantahala in beautiful North Carolina. The two-story home features lake views from all rooms as well as covered decks on both levels. There is a great room on each level and a game room with a video arcade game, ping pong, and air hockey tables. A gradual terrain walkway leads to a floating boat/swim dock. Boat rentals are available at a nearby marina or you can bring your own boat and dock it at the house.

Lake Nantahala is the second highest lake east of the Mississippi River and is beautiful in summer, spring, fall, or winter. Lake Nantahala was mentioned as one of the top ten cleanest man made lakes in the world. And because only five percent of its shoreline can be built out, the lake is not crowded and you’ll enjoy the true beauty of the lake and mountains.

The Nantahala area is popular for whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, camping, fishing, mountain hiking and biking, and snow skiing. The Cherokee Indian Reservation & Casino is also located nearby.

Additional Features: two stone fireplaces, satellite TVs, DVDs, VCRs, stereo with deck speakers, CD player, gas grill, phone, air conditioning, full kitchen, microwave, dishwasher, two refrigerators, ice maker, cooking utensils, linens, washer and dryer, jetted tub in master, two king beds, one queen bed, bunk room that sleeps six and two sleeper sofas.

It is our goal to make sure you have the perfect vacation. We include in our detailed rental package a listing of area activities and phone numbers so you can plan before you leave home. Our previous renters have been very happy with our home/service.

Nice house, but had maintenance issues :(

  • 3 of 5
This is a nice house, but unfortunately we had maintenance issues that the owner did not resolve until the day we checked in. Upon our arrival, the refrigerator was in the middle of the kitchen, with water underneath soaking into the wood floors. A plumber arrived about 2 hours later to pull out the floor and wall, then had to run a whole new water line. He said the refrigerator had leaked like this before, so he was familiar with the recurring problem. The issue worsened the second day with more water, floor planks sticking straight out of the floor; had vendors in and out, replacing floor boards and caulking windows. TWO interrupted vacation days! We kindly requested some type of compensation for the two days of inconvenience, but the owner said no because they had allowed us a late checkout the final day. Looking back, we should have just vacated the property until the vendors were completely finished... but we thought the owners would gladly compensate us for the trouble later, so we stayed and endured it. At this point, the owner has stopped responding to our emails so we are at a loss as to how to proceed. Maybe VRBO can help? Thanks all.

Owner's Response: This renter asked for an early check-in and I accommodated this request. My cleaning person came in early on the day of her check-in and found a leak. I immediately contacted this renter and told her there was a leak and that she could still come in early but I had a plumber coming in to check it. She was fine with this. Her early arrival was why the refrigerator was still pulled out. I talked with her after the plumber left and all seemed fine. The next morning she said the floor had buckled due to the moisture. I immediately called the builder. He reported that he was there from 11AM to 1PM. Some of the repair was inside and some outside. The repair was NOT recurring due to the refrigerator. There had been a thunderstorm the night before that caused a leak in the windows. Completely unavoidable and unexpected! I communicated with her that day and she never complained to me. I apologized for the inconvenience and offered an extra night stay at no charge...along with the early check-in and late check-out. She didn't complain and joked that she wished she could take a day off work and stay. It was a week later that she emailed me that she felt she needed money back. If she had voiced her complaint and refund request during the time of the situation, I would have granted this request, but she gave me no indication of her dissatisfaction. Furthermore, she told my builder she had to prepare for 21 guests that would be coming in that afternoon. That really took me by surprise as well because I was expecting 9 adults and 3 kids.
To potential renters: Please look at the other reviews on my site. I have another rental property, with hundreds of comments and reviews over the past 8 years, and this is the only one that isn't 5 Star. I can't always promise that there won't be a maintenance issue, but I can promise that I will do all possible to get it resolved as quickly as possible. In fact, I spend so much time in preventative maintenance, it is extremely rare for me to have an issue during a renter's stay.
I'm sorry this guest had this issue but I wish she would have let me know of her dissatisfaction during her stay and in a timely manner.

Beautiful Home, Great Location, and Breathtaking View (YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED)!!

Beautiful Home, Great Location, and Breathtaking View (YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED)!!
  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful home for a girl's weekend. Celebrating Mom's 85th birthday. This home has everything you need and more. It is absolutely beautiful inside and out. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. We roasted marshmallows in the fire pit. There is something there for everyone to do from the ping pong table to air hockey to fishing, boating, and swimming. The view is absolutely breathtaking. We did not go out of the lake but plan to on our summer return. You are not far from surrounding towns for shopping, sightseeing, and hiking. Tammie, the owner was very helpful and very accommodating. I would recommend this for large family gatherings or for just a get away. I cannot wait to return! I promise you won't be disappointed.

BEST VACATION EVER!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time renting this beautiful home on Lake Nantahala. I say "home" because it truly is a home and not just a "house". Beautiful views, warm and inviting decor, everything that we could possibly want or need was available. Tammie, the owner, was EXTREMELY helpful and a joy to rent from. We had a large group of family this trip so one family rented the house right next door. We had 2 families in our home and everyone had plenty of room. The house next door was a wonderful compliment to our home and the 12 cousins (ages 4 - 18) had a blast going between the homes. They played air hockey and ping pong in our home and then would go next door to play pool and jump in the hot tub. We all enjoyed the lake immensely! We rented a pontoon boat from David and loved getting out on the beautiful lake. The kids swam, tubed, fished, kayaked, hiked and went zip lining. The teenage boys even kayaked over to the small island nearby and camped out one night. It was wonderful to see the kids (especially the teenagers) become "unplugged" and get outside and enjoy the lake activities. Everyone (kids and adults) commented that this was the BEST VACATION EVER! We hope to return to Nantahala Lake and this home again many more times in the future.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do this gorgeous home justice. From the moment we walked in the front door, we were enthralled! Beautiful views, absolutely lovely furnishings and decor, and everything you could possibly want or need provided for you. It almost became a sort of joke - because there wasn't ANYTHING that we needed that wasn't provided. The kids (ages 9-13) had a ball on the lake, as well as playing air hockey and ping pong. They loved piling in on the cozy couches and watching movies, making smores on the fire pit, and just enjoying the views. Plenty of space for multiple families. Highly recommend.

We look forward to staying in your home again in the future!

Beautiful Home and Views

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home with an amazing view! The house was in perfect shape and had everything you can imagine and need. We went with two other families for a total of 7 kids and 6 adults and everyone had their own room, bed, and bathroom. Tammie, the owner is great and very helpful. Highly recommended!
