This house has an absolutely beautiful view. Breakfast on the porch was awesome! Lots of room for families. We had a great time, but did have a few suggestions for future renters. One was we brought our own boat. DEFINATELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! The road leading to the home is extremely narrow and steep. There was no way to get boat to the home, we had to leave it at the bottom of the mountain until the next day because the marina was already closed for the evening. But once we were able to get it in and at the dock, it was great to use and explore the lake. Maybe a rental boat would have been better. Also, this home is three stories, so lots of stairs to climb as well as lots of steep stairs down to the dock, so would not suggest for people who have knee problems or small children. We had two small children (2 and under) which made it a little hard carrying them up and down the stairs just to go to the water. Also, we could not get any cell service at the home (had three different cell carriers) and the phone at the house is for local calls only so we had no way to contact owner with regards to any problems. Also, house had a mice problem. I understand you are in the woods, but we had to buy plastic containers to put our food in (and mice traps) as the mice were eating everything and leaving droppings all over the kitchen counters! Overall the stay was good with the exception of these few things. Definately for the person who wants to enjoy the outdoors and relax!

Owner's Response: Sandra,
We're glad that you all still had a great time at the house depsite the issue with mice. We have since taken care of the problem after we went up to the house to stay for a week. The house now has bait put out, so future renters should not have a problem with this. I will also be letting my cleaners/caretakers know to keep an eye out for any future activity. To any future renter, please be aware that NO Lake Nantahala homes have cell signal for ANY cell service providers. For this reason, the Rustic Market & the Wayah Cafe have provided a mobile hotspot service for cell phones, which are less than a 5 minute drive from the house.
