If you are looking for a family vacation that will leave a lifetime of memories, our beautiful home on Fontana Lake will not disappoint. Whether you are looking for nonstop action or want to veg for a week we have it all!!! Our home is designed to accommodate up to 18 people very comfortably with 3 master suites, a kids room with 2 bunk beds, a 5th room that has 2 beds that can act as a king or two doubles. With 5 bathrooms and an outdoor shower there is never a wait. The two kitchens are very convenient for indoor and outdoor eating. The house is two levels so the kids can watch tv on one floor, while the adults can read or watch tv on another. The sunsets and sunrises are spectacular, as well as seeing the fog come off the lake each morning. Fontana Lake is HEAVEN ON EARTH, it is very under populated,( very little boat traffic), the night skies are spectacular, as well as the moon lit lake. If sports and relaxation are not enough there are tons of historic sites to see nearby

Our home is owned by my family and my wife's sisters family. They are identical twins and are exceptionally close. We each have three kids who are all very close, but unfortunately we live in Florida and sister and brother -in -law live in New York. Our lake home has allowed us to share incredibly memorable times together that the cousins will not forget. We have had many families visit with us and they all have had the same unforgettable experience. Now that the kids are getting older and doing their own things, we have not been able to utilize the house as much and would like to share it with others.
The Owner purchased this house in 2006
I have never been to a place with more natural beauty then Fontana Lake. The lake water is cool, clear and deep. One of our favorite activities is to find a secluded cove(there are hundreds) surrounded by the smoky's and just float in tubes for hours. It is truly exhilarating !! Or if water isn't your thing the hiking is spectacular as well as the sights of animals, mountains and vegetation.
It is the rare place where you can completely relax or be as active as you want
Even though the description and photos provided accurately describe this property, I was still blown away by it. All the amenities of home in an breath-taking setting. The owners provided a helpful guide for the local area so we knew where to stock up before we reached the house. We were a party of eight - 4 adults and 4 children between the ages of four and twelve. Prior to arriving, I was concerned the children would get bored but it never happened. They were super busy during the day playing ping pong, paddle boarding, kayaking and jumping off the second story of the floating dock. Evenings consisted of dinners on the lower deck and making s'mores in the fire pit or playing a game in one of the house's several comfortable living areas. To quote my 7yr old, "This house is awesome!"
This place is just a little bit of heaven . The house exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by the luxurious design. The vacation was very relaxing and our family (8 adults, 6 children) had plenty of room to be together but also enjoyed the privacy and space on the different levels. The owner was very responsive to our needs and is very focused on ensuring that we would have a great experience.
The lake is magic and is surrounded by nature at its best. The canoes, the water mat, the paddle board, the fire pit were a hit for the whole family. Even the duck with her 10 ducklings was sharing our joy on the water mat most of the day.
The grocery store is about 25 minutes away. So load up your car and save yourself a lot of precious time driving to get food.
Thanks to the owners for willing to share this beautiful house with us.
Five couples spent a long weekend in this fabulous house, and it couldn't have been a better weekend. The house is wonderfully appointed and equipped (and plenty large enough for everyone to have their own space), the property well maintained, the views spectacular, and the owner even ordered perfect weather for us. We enjoyed the house and decks so much, we only left one morning to go exporing in Dillsboro. A previous comment about the distance/time to a grocery store was helpful, so we were sure we took everything we needed. We definitely give this house a high recommendation.
This was our third and best trip to Bryson City, NC. The area is packed with great stuff to do; rafting, tubing, biking, zip-lining, hiking, etc. On this trip the accommodations and the lake were so beautiful it was hard to leave during the day to make our activity reservations. In fact, my family has already inquired about a 2013 reservation to enjoy Lake Fontana a little more. The owner provided paddle board, kayaks, water mattress, and dock itself provided hours and hours of fun for our group. The home itself is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. I'm glad the owners are willing to share this treasure!
what a perfect house and backdrop for our family vacation with so much to do that once we arrived we never found a need to leave... the only regret we had was that we didnt stay longer.
thank you for opening your house to us and letting us in, we made many memories that we wont soon forget.
12 family members from Montreal, New York City, the Jersey Shore, and Atlanta came together for an annual family getaway. We were all tears to leave! Thank you for being such a breeze to work with and giving us a beautiful canvas for gorgeous pictures and wonderful memories! The house and Fontana Lake were our perfect backdrop ten-fold!
