Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time!! Our families decided to meet half way for vacation this year. One family from Florida & the other from Ohio. Beautiful weather all week. Rented a pontoon boat to fish & tube all over the lake. Only caught a few Bass & 1 Catfish but enjoyed chatting with the old fellas at the bait shop. You have a wonderful house - very comfortable & fully equipped. We really hope to get down again next year. Only Suggestion we can think of - directions on how to work the DVD player. Thanks again for sharing your home!

Hidden Gem

My husband, our two young baby girls, and family friends really enjoyed the lakefront cottage! The pictures do not do it justice...much more modern looking in person. The pictures of the scenery can't touch the experience of being in such a pristine and beautiful environment. If we could, we would come back for all seasons to just take in the views and calmness. We will be back! Only thing we had for complaints was the dock needs some updating but otherwise... we had no complaints. Make note there is no cell phone service or internet which could be a pro or con. We enjoyed disconnecting so it was great for us! Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

Owner's Response: Odessa, Thank you for taking the time to write your review about your stay at Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your compliments about the cottage and comments about the beautiful mountain and lake views one can always enjoy. We would like to say that Verizon cell phone service is available at the cottage. Wifi is not available at the cottage and it is available within a mile at Santeetlah Town Hall or some of the restaurants in Robbinsville, approximately 7 miles from the cottage. We certainly agree about the dock and have been trying to get this taken care of all season and hope it will be soon! Thanks again and we hope you will visit us again in the near future.

My family of four from naples,fl enjoyed this lakefront cottage with a dock. It was fully stocked, clean and lovely. I would like to see them add the use of a kayak or canoe. Not too far to many interesting things to do as well. Very relaxing!

Owner's Response: Renee, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah. Most likely we will not be offering a kayak or canoe. We had a bad experience in the past with a canoe and tenant plus I'm certainly not able to get a canoe out of the water & carry it back up the steps for storage or to care for it when tenants leave it in the water or on the dock. You can't imagine how some tenants leave or treat things! Then there's the additional liability, life jackets, oars, etc. In the best interest for all concerned, we prefer to let the boat rental companies handle these types of rentals. Of course, you're more than welcome to bring your own kayak or canoe!

We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and found the cottage to be well equipped and stocked. Even your finding birthday candles at the cottage for your daughter's birthday!

Thanks again for submitting your review and we hope you will visit again in the near future.

Thank you Diana for helping us arrange our vacation at this lovely cottage! This was our 5th visit to NC and by far our favorite spot!! It was wonderful to arrive to such a clean smelling and immaculate home. We commented that we always try to leave rentals "nicer than we found them" but that we had our "work cut out for us!" The place was exactly as listed, no surprises. The lake view was my favorite. The lake is clean and wonderful for kayaking, boating, tubing, skiing and swimming. Coming from busy Florida beaches, this setting was so peaceful and relaxing. We appreciated that the grocery was just a short drive as were a few restaurants. Although we did not use the downstairs (separate entry) bedroom, it would have been perfect for older teen/adult children or mother-in-law. We look forward to our next trip in 2015!

It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This! The beauty of the mountains and lake are enjoyed at this nice & comfortable lakefront home on Lake Santeetlah. Located approximately 8 miles North of the town of Robbinsville, in the residential resort town of Santeetlah, also known as Thunderbird Mountain Resort.

Lake Santeetlah has 76 miles of shoreline and approximately 80% of the land around the lake is managed by the U.S. Forest Service. This pristine lake is ideal for swimming, fishing & boating.

Lakefront Cottage is conveniently located to many places of interest including Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, a virgin timber forest with enormous size trees over 400 yrs. old, heights of 150 ft. and circumferences of 20 ft.

The Cherohala Skyway, a National Scenic By-Way, leads you through wilderness mountain country where you will climb to elevations over a mile high to enjoy the scenic overlooks, hiking trails & the wonders of nature.

Fontana Dam, built in the early 1940's is the highest concrete dam east of the Rockies and is definitely a site to behold! Lake Fontana borders the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offers 240 miles of shoreline & is well known with fishing enthusiasts, boaters & swimmers. Also, of special note, areas of Lake Fontana & the town of Robbinsville were featured in the 1994 filming of the major motion picture 'Nell' starring Jodie Foster, Liam Neeson & Natasha Richardson. A scene in the filming of the movie 'The Fugitive' starring Harrison Ford was filmed at Cheoah Dam on Hwy. 129, near Tail of the Dragon & the Cheoah River.

Lakefront Cottage is just minutes from the Cheoah River & Tail of the Dragon. The Dragon, which is Internationally known among motorcyclists & sports car drivers, boasts 318 curves in 11 miles. While the Cheoah River may look like a sleepy river at times, it becomes a raging river with a Class III - IV+ and V river for experienced rafters & kayakers during special water release dates. 2014 Cheoah River Release Dates: Feb. 22nd & 23rd, Mar. 15th, 16th, & 17th, Apr. 12th & 13th, 26th & 27th, May 3rd & 4th, 17th & 18th, 24th & 25th, June 28th & 29th, Nov. 1st.

Many local artisans in this mountain region welcome you to their studio and it's a great way to see the back roads and countryside at the same time. Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center features local artisan works in their Gallery which is open daily except Sunday and concerts are held every Saturday night during the summer months for an enjoyable 'Appalachian Evening Concert'.

If mountain biking is your sport, Tsali Recreation Area is within a 35 - 40 min. drive from Lakefront Cottage & features challenging trails that offers views of the Smokies & Lake Fontana.

The Nantahala River for a family friendly whitewater rafting trip or fly fishing in a delayed harvest trout stream is within a 30 min. drive of Lakefront Cottage.

Just 45 min. to Cherokee where you can explore the History of the Cherokee Indians at the Museum or Oconoluftee Living Village or the outdoor drama 'Unto These Hills' that tells the Trail of Tears story about the removal of the Cherokee people from the mountains to Oklahoma. Enjoy gem mining, shoppping or perhaps take your chances gambling at Harrah's Cherokee Casino.

Step back in time at the Pioneer Farmstead next to the Oconoluftee Visitor Center at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Hwy. 441 as you leave Cherokee and enter the Park. The new Oconoluftee Visitor Center also provides some very interesting history & information about the Park including widllife, flowers, trees, hiking trails, waterfalls, old communities & Appalachian living in the Smokies. On the third Saturday of every month, Oconoluftee Visitor Center hosts an 'Old-time Music Jam Session' from 1:00 PM to 3:00PM. Anyone who plays or sings old-time music is welcome to join in and spectators are welcome, too.

If you're a train buff or just want to have a fun day riding a train through the mountains, check out the Great Smoky Mountains Railway in Bryson City, approximately 40 min. drive from Lakefront Cottage.

How about tubing down a creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park? For a fun day, you can rent a tube near Deep Creek in Bryson City and enjoy tubing down the creek, picnicing in the Park or hiking a short trail to a waterfall.

You won't have to go far to find trout streams & creeks, hiking trails including The Appalachian Trail, waterfalls, wildflowers, mountain biking & horseback riding trails, whitewater rafting & kayaking on the Nantahala River or Cheoah River.

Come explore and enjoy our natural wonders, scenic beauty and great outdoor adventures - we're the best kept secret in the Smokies especially Lake Santeetlah where you can sit and relax on our screen porch to enjoy beautiful mountain & lakefront views or walk down to our private boat dock and enjoy swimming, boating or fishing.
