My husband, 16 year old 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.

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.

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.

9805 Reunion

Four old Navy buddies and their now families had an incredible week and reunion at the Passion Lodge on Fontana Lake. We had 16 people (8 adults and 8 kids) in the lodge and never felt cramped. The description of the lodge, including photos, is spot on. Fun for all in the lodge. The kids loved all the games, real and electronic; the movie room and of course the bunk room where only one child fell out of bed (bottom bunk!). The adults were particularly fond of the wine cooler and beverage fridge. Hard to take the Sailor out of these men! The lodge was spacious enough for four adult couples to have their own space. It was also very well appointed, maintained and clean. We spent the majority of our time on the dock, pontoon, jet ski, water toys and in the water. A beautiful place we would absolutely recommend and like to visit again. Gaylene was very responsive to our questions and needs. Thank You Gaylene for a great reunion:)

Fontana Lake Lodge

Our actual dates of our stay were 6/22-29/13. Everything was near-perfect, and our reunion party of 14 were all pleased. The landlady couldn't have been better - she answered all questions we had before our stay, and promptly returned the deposit check afterwards. Checkout instructions are explicit, and not difficult, and are given in the welcome letter and posted on the refrigerator. The house is beautiful. A plus was the railings on the 2nd floor porch facing the lake. They were tight enough that there was no way our 2 year old granddaughter could get between them - she was totally safe, with the stair gate block at the top of the stairs. The lake is in front of the house - 20 ft away, with a dock where kayaks, a paddle board, and a paddle boat are tied. Our party enjoyed the first three, paddling into coves and out to the main lake. We brought our own canoe, too. The water was so warm that you can stay in as long as you want, which I did with a lifejacket so that I didn't have to tread water. So relaxing. Float around in the middle of the lake. The Mountain View Bistro restaurant at the nearby Fontana Village Lodge (1/2 hour away) has top-notch food and views. Fontana Dam, tallest in the eastern U.S., is impressive to visit. There are tennis courts at Fontana Village, and an incredible golf course, Sequoiah National, near Cherokee about 45 minutes away. Hiking is a bit of a drive - we went to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, where there is the only virgin stand of timber left in the eastern U.S. - and that was about an hour away. Some of us also went into the Great Smoky Mtn Nat'l Park via the Cherokee entrance and went up to Clingman's dome, the tallest point on the Appalachian Trail. We also hiked the Trail towards Charles Bunion Mtn from Newfound Gap. Both of these hikes were about 1.5 hrs from the cabin. We are an active family, and did all these things, but really - you could just stay at the cabin (Fontana Passion Lake Lodge), swim, kayak, play pool, ping-pong (1/2 table), enjoy the beautiful view from the porches (upstairs and down), cook good food, watch movies in the theatre, and our couple of younger people (mid-twenties) enjoyed the Wi games (I think that's what they're called). I would recommend this rental to anyone - already have. And I would love to come back. It was the best rental I have ever had, and the owner was the best landlady I've ever had. I feel lucky that we found this place.

Best Family Vacation!

My Family loved Fontana Passion Lake Lodge! We came from 5 different states (TN, WI, NY, FL & VA) and had a Great week! (Wish we could have stayed longer)
The house is beautiful - you only need to bring your food, drinks and personal items because the owners supply everything else you may need. The pictures are spot on and there is plenty of room for everyone. It’s a new house so everything is in great condition.
The Lake is awesome! It’s like a sheet of glass in the middle of the mountains. This house has so many amenities that you can’t possible get bored. We spent most of our days down on the dock with all the water toys (boat, jet ski, kayaks, paddle boat & paddle board). Make sure to go White water rafting at NOC – good time!
Would I recommend this to others? Oh heck yes! I’ve already spread the word in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s a Great Family get-away. We made some wonderful memories with our huge family!!
