Guestbook comments from the owner
"I want to let you know what a wonderful time my entire family had at the lake and the lake house made it a special time for all of us. The house is absolutely gorgeous, with lovely decorations and amenities. All of the beds were very comfortable. The downstairs ice maker was a great idea as well as all of the entertainment items."

My husband, daughter, and I love this area and this house with a passion which is why we called it Fontana Passion Lake Lodge. We love the peaceful 12,000 acre lake with 240 miles of shoreline which provides numerous opportunities for the outdoor sportsperson. We personally love to waterski, kneeboad, and kayak.

My husband is a physical therapist and I am in medical sales.

We hope you love this house and area as much as we do and come back often to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and reenergize.

owner/property manager purchased this lodge in 2011

We have been going to this area for over 30 years and always wanted to own property there. Since 85% of property on Fontana Lake is owned by the forest service (accounts for the minimal boat traffic, unspoiled, and peaceful area )we were fortunate to find this property for sale and made our dream come true. We love the close proximity to Asheville, mountain biking, rafting, tubing at Bryson City, casinos at Cherokee, and breathtaking mountain views.

Directly on the lake with immediate water access and private boat dock with slide. Secluded area with minimal homes and boat traffic on lake to enjoy the scenery.

50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5
Guest: Sue & Ron, Franklin, VA

Date of stay: 6/28-7/4/14 Review submitted: 8/10/14

We had a wonderful 50th Anniversary celebration with our family of 14 at Fontana Passion Lake Lodge. We all agreed it was the most relaxing and fun vacation we have had. The cabin is beautiful and extremely well furnished and equipped. Our family gave us a surprise party and everything they needed to entertain was right there.

Our 6 grandchildren (ages 7-15) loved being right on the lake and they spent hours from dawn to dusk fishing, kayaking and tubing. Having the well equipped floating dock for our boat was wonderful. The setting is so peaceful and there was very little boat traffic.

The evening found everyone either watching a movie in the great little theatre, roasting marshmallows over the campfire or soaking in the hot tub. We never heard the children say they were bored and by the end of the day they were worn out and ready for bed. On the last day they did not want to leave and even wanted us to ask Gaylene if we could buy the lodge. Wish we could!

Wonderful Vacation Home!!

  • 5 of 5
Our 3-generation family had a fabulous week in Gaylene's home on Fontana Lake. Each room is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The fully stocked kitchen made cooking easy and fun. The movie theater, hot tub, and boating equipment provided lots of daily relaxation and enjoyment. Couldn't have asked for anything more!!

The best place for family bonding!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this place 1 1/2 years in advance so needless to say...we were anxious to get there. It did not disappoint. We went with our kids and their kids and had such a wonderful time together, sharing the simplest of things. There was nothing it lacked except a ski boat and although we looked forward to taking advantage of all that it offered, a week was too short. I never even got to open a book as we were always on the go. We even got to share it with our dog who is very old. I don't know how you can stay away Gaylene and rent it out, but I sure am glad that you do. You have a tremendous knack for detail and every inch of your home showed it. As a side note, I would recommend the horseback riding by Fontana Marina for a beautiful trailride. Thanks for the memories as they say and we hope to come up again.

The Hawkins Family Vacation of Joy 2014! The Greatest vacation we've ever experienced!

The Hawkins Family Vacation of Joy 2014! The Greatest vacation we've ever experienced!
  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!! Let me start by telling you that we have been renting vacation homes as our choice for lodging on vacations for years. We've rented on the beach, in the mountains and even overseas. This home IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST WE'VE EVER EXPERIENCED!!
We live in Fairbanks, Alaska, some 4000+ miles from family. So, we often spend our vacations renting large homes and inviting family to come and visit. That means enough activities to keep people busy and having fun! This house affords this and more!
From the view, to the dock, boats, pool table, video games, theater, porch for sitting and catching up, hot tub, fire ring, etc. From the thoughtfulness of rechargable batteries, roll away beds, shampoo, q-tips, extra ping pong balls, books, etc. This home has everything you need for a GREAT time! Just bring yourself and your clothes.
We felt so honored to rent this home and share it with our family. On Saturday we had lots of family over our sons graduation party. This home was big enough to allow us to never get bored or crowded or get on one anothers nerves. My brother and his family told us that was the best vacation they had ever had. The same was said by my nephew and my older son's family. We ALL fell in love with this home!
But none of this would have been possible, if not for Gaylene and her family purposing to create the best of atmosphere and setting for us (and you if you choose). We felt like Fontana Passion Lake Lodge was created, 'Just For Us'! And we treated this beautiful home with the utmost respect! We want places like this to always be available for people, so it was very important for us to leave as small a footprint as we possibly could.

If you are wondering if this home is for you, good. Do your due diligence, find 'your' home. For the Hawkins' Family, this is "ours"! So, if you pick this home, enjoy, keep it clean and ready for our eventual return.
We even left alittle piece of our home at this home. On the mantel in the living room you will see a Birch handcrafted wooden mug. This is a speciality handmade by a local craftsman here in Alaska. We felt totally comfortable leaving this as something to enhance the beauty and decor of this house. We hope everyone that chooses to stay her will enjoy this home as much as we did. Some of our families GREATEST ALL TIME MEMORIES, were created at Fontana Passion Lake Lodge.
We are putting together, another and longer stay, for 2016.
What a Blessing!!!

Awesome place to stay!!

Even with the lake being low this time of the year, our whole family had a great time. The house is fantastic and Gaylene was very helpful. We will definitely come back again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5
AWESOME!!
We are so glad we discovered Lake Fontana and the wonderful lodge. None of us wanted to leave, we will definitely have fond memories for many years and would like to return. Boat traffic was almost non existent, 12 boats in a week! It was peaceful and scenery on the lake picture perfect. The pictures online don’t do the lodge justice. It was perfect for our family. Ages ranged from 14 months to 75 years, plenty of space for everyone to relax. At 72 I checked off another item on my bucket list and kayaked for the first time along with my 4 year old grandson. As they say, “Good Lord willin and the creek don’t rise” we will return again.
