We have been married for 40 years and have two grown daughters. We all love to water ski and this uncrowded lake is a great place to be! I teach middle school string music and my husband owns his own company designing and selling 3 dimensional displays. This is my summer haven for reading, cooling off and just plain relaxing! After 25 years I don't know what I would do without this place for amazing R and R!! We're delighted to share it with you and your loved ones!

Kathleen purchased this cottage in 1989

Because 80% of the lake is national forest the lake sees very little boat traffic. We are close to the water, yet have a fabulous view. We love being in the trees where we can wear our jammies for breakfast and see all but not be seen! Our girls love swimming in the cove and I never worry about boats coming by because they turn out before they reach us at the end of the cove. We love to ski and swim.The water is so clear you won't need a shower. The water is a very comfortable temperature from June-October. A day of rest here will refresh you for a full week! Easy living at its best!

This is one of only two listings that has a screened in porch. This is a MUST in the mountains, where rain can crop up suddenly. We're also at the end of a cove, so swimming in deep water here isd very safe. Cozy, comfortable, easy living with beautiful views all year round. The bathrooms have been recently tiled, with new flooring and plenty of towels. WALK TO THE MARINA AND RENTAL CRAFT. Free boat launching within one mile of cottage. Only 6 miles from Robbinsville and good grocery shopping and eating out. There is an amazing farm nearby where you can pick your own fruit and purchase delicious vegetables and beautiful flowers. Not far from the Nantahala River and extra special dining, Great hiking near by and resort shopping only 40 minutes away. Wonderful artisans in the area make exploring extra fun! Run on over to Bryson City and enjoy a run on the Smokey Mountain Railroad or a tube run on Deep Creek. Nantahala Inn has fabulous food as does the :Snowbird Mountain Lodge. Cherohala Skyway is very close as is the Tail of the Dragon.

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place to vacation. It is as pictured. It's quiet, beautiful, and very cozy. We rented a ski boat for the week and easily tied up to the large dock. Clean dock for swimming and fishing. Our 5 year old son caught and released his first fish off the dock. We spent a lot of time on the boat enjoying the beautiful lake. The house was nice to come home to after being in the sun for hours. The screened in porch is very warm and inviting. We cooked a lot in the kitchen and ate our meals on the screened porch. We used the Weber charcoal grill a lot! It was very nice on the deck while grilling. Our son loved resting on the deck swing. The neighbor hood is nice for walking. The owners were very nice and easy to work with. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

A week to remember

  • 4 of 5
Five of us had a great time at this cottage on the lake. There was plenty to do on/in the lake and in the area; the notebook on the coffee table is packed with information. And the tourist office in downtown Robbinsville is very helpful.
We love to hike. There are hiking trails of all difficulty levels nearby, including Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The two-year-old grandson did well on trails like Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and Yellow Creek Falls (see the waterfall brochure!)
Two of us paddled halfway around the lake one day, thoroughly enjoying the scenery. Many parts of the shoreline are undeveloped.
On warm days, we ran the A/Cs in the evening to help cool down and dry the air a bit, but the house is shaded by large trees, so it stays comfortable easily.
Just as the owner says, the screened porch is delightful. We ate most meals there, enjoying the lake atmosphere. It was sad to see the week come to an end!

Beautiful lake, great little cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a quiet relaxing lake side cottage and this house was perfect for that. Lake Santeetlah is beautiful and serene. The house is small but would comfortably fit a family of 4-6. The kitchen is well-stocked with supplies and there's a nice charcoal grill to use outside. The screened in porch is perfect for relaxing with a good book, and the views of the lake are spectacular. Even though it's situated at the end of a cove surrounded by other houses, it feels very quiet and private due to the thick forest. Sitting on the screened in porch feels like being in a tree house! We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake, swimming every day, and exploring the surrounding areas. The owners were easy to work with and responsive. We will definitely consider staying here again!

Lake adventure

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely enjoyed staying on the lake for a few days. We are parents, a 10 year old boy and a 13 year old girl and her 13 year old friend. We found the rental to be perfect for our family, with the highlight being easy access to Lake Santeetlah. We rented a boat from the Marina nearby, we hiked in the Joyce Kilmer area, rafted down the Nantahala, cooked on the grill, made smores by the campfire, and hung out on the deck. And the adults had a great date at the Snowbird Lodge. The morning and evening sunsets on the lake warmed the heart.
