LAKE FRONT HONKA(FINLAND) LOG HOME WITH SAUNA!

Lake Nantahala Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Awesome European Honka Log Home on Lake Nantahala!

This property is unique compared to others on the lake! Approximately 3000 sq. ft. of living area plus 3 large decks facing the lake. Fishing and swimming from your own 20' x 26' private dock will surely be one of the most memorable highlights for the kids. You might choose to rent a pontoon boat from the neighboring Marina. If you have your own boat, launch at the nearby boat ramp and tie up at your private dock.

Come inside and 'decompress' amid the antiques and leather furniture, a casual blend of eclectic and rustic. There's no danger of feeling as if you've walked into a stale, cookie-cutter resort rental condo, as photos of family and past visitors adorn the walls and impart a welcome feeling of visiting with old friends and being a part of the family.

Views of the lake and distant mountains are wonderful from the three outside decks, where you can enjoy your meals outdoors or take a leisurely soak in the hot-tub. Drive or go by boat to the quaint mountain lakefront cafe'(828-321-3000) where you can enjoy an early breakfast and meet some of the locals, or dine informally in the evening. Enjoy the walk in steam sauna.

The Log Home is easily accessible. No need for four-wheel-drive. Quiet, comfortable lake living at it's best. Come and enjoy this Lake Front Log Home!!!! Owner managed to be sure your stay is top notch as I want our guests to return....Book today! Weekly rentals only from last week in June through 1st week in August unless short-notice availability.

Jerry & Lisa McMahan

Alpharetta, GA

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. When this unique property became available I purchased it even though we already owned another cabin in the area.

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.

Total Relaxation in an Idyllic Locale

Our family sought a week off-the-grid in the cool(er) mountains of North Carolina. We were enticed by the beautiful lakefront setting, the proximity to hiking and rafting, and the stunning architecture of this log cabin. The reality far exceeded our expectations! The house was as perfect and more comfortable than we had hoped for. Our kids -- 13, 10 and 7 -- had the "luxury camping" vacation that matches any offered elsewhere. And we were able to fully disconnect as a family and enjoy our time away and one another. We can't thank Jerry and Lisa enough for being so welcoming and accommodating, and look forward to our next chance to enjoy their lake cabin!

We chose this cabin for its beauty and amenities and for the amazing setting overlooking the lake and mountains. We were getting away for some much need R & R with family and friends and to celebrate my birthday! The owners were very helpful and you can tell they really care about their home and want people have a great time. They even gave me a nice birthday gift upon arrival! Great touch! All in all everyone had a wonderful time at this very special place on earth. Would highly recommend!

What a Great Place!!!!!

This home is absolutely beautiful - better than a plush resort!!! What a wonderful place to spend time with your family. Captivating views and everything you need to relax and getaway from "every day life". Our four children spent time boating, swimming, fishing and hiking just outside the cabin's doors. The house is immaculate and isn't missing and detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend here and will definitely be going back! I give this cabin an A+!!!

We came all the way from England and stayed at this cabin back in March for a number of nights. The cabin is well out of the way of city life and located in a beautiful gated community so its very private and secure.

As soon as we arrived at the cabin we were taken aback not only by the cabin but by the absolutely stunning views. The lake is amazing.

The cabin had everything you could ever need, was clean, well maintained and super cosey. We spent most of our time reading and relaxing in the hot tub as well as admiring the view from the dock.

Jerry and Lisa were extremely helpful and welcoming, even meeting us at the cabin which is a rare thing in our experience (we've stayed in many over the years). They've done an amazing job in making their cabin very welcoming and warm, it was a shame we had to leave.

Nantahala Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
My family and I spent four nights at this home earlier this summer. The weather was marginal, but we still had a great time as there was plenty of stuff to do during the rainy periods. We spent every day in the water, and also enjoyed canoeing around the lake, especially to the various islands immediately across the lake from the house. We also rented a boat one morning and had a great time tubing around the lake.

The view is fantastic and the lake is wonderful as it is much less crowded than other lakes around the area. The Nantahala area has a much more relaxed feel than some of the other lakes visited by folks from the Atlanta area such as Lanier, Hartwell, or Burton.

The owners were extremely friendly and we would be more than happy to rent from them again next summer!
