Jerry & Lisa McMahan
Lisa McMahan purchased this cabin in 2011
I am originally from nearby Robbinsville, NC and always wanted to have a second home in the area. Of all the mountain lakes in western NC and North GA my favorite is Lake Nantahala due to the pristine water, elevation (over 3,000 ft.) and mountain setting.
The Nantahala Highlands Estates is a gated community that has very little traffic and a 1.8 mile level road above the lake that is great for walking, running, or biking.
We enjoy sitting on one of the three large decks by the lake taking in the scenery, reading, and relaxing. Most of our guests like the large outdoor spa(hot tub) in any season. An outdoor fireplace is enjoyable, especially on cool days or summer evenings. Lake activities such as swimming off the dock and tubing in the summer months. Fishing the clear waters in this lake can be rewarding. Species include bass (large mouth & small mouth), trout, bream, and salmon.
We enjoy boating on our pontoon boat, traveling by water to the lake cafe in the summer months.
The fall is a beautiful time to enjoy the colorful scenery along this high elevation mountain lake.
I enjoy the snow winter brings especially looking out from the decks as it comes down over and into the lake.
Spring brings rebirth in the mountains and warmer days to enjoy outside activities.
In addition to the Lakes End Cafe, many dining choices can be had about 45 minutes away in Franklin, NC.
