GRACE COTTAGE: COZY. AFFORDABLE. PERFECT FOR A SMALL FAMILY!

Lake Nantahala Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, directly on the lake, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

Thanks for stopping by! Maybe this is what you're looking for: an AFFORDABLE place for your small family to escape the heat and enjoy a pristine mountain lake, a quiet and beautiful couple's Fall getaway, a place to fish, swim, explore. You've found us!

Our cottage is not fancy or huge. It's cozy, clean and right on Lake Nantahala, one of the highest and cleanest lakes in the Eastern U.S. We bought the cottage years ago as a perfect escape from the busyness of Atlanta. Now we want to share it with you.

We have no pool tables or hot tubs or wii's. We DO have a great private dock, books, videos, and a place to simply unwind without all the usual distractions of home. Swim from our private dock. (Bring your snorkle gear ... i usually see fish when I snorkle around our dock ... the water is crystal clear) Bring your boat (ramp is 2 minutes away) or rent one from Lakes End Marina (or use our canoe). Kids love our dock, the many streams to wade in, and places to hike and explore (we're practically surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest). Parents love the quiet setting, our collection of books and movies, and the fact that your cell phone won't work up here! There are great restaurants 20 minutes by car (or ride your boat across the water to Lake's End Grill), a Super Walmart in Murphy (35 minutes away) for supplies, hiking trails all around (the Appalachian Trail is 20 minutes away), whitewater rafting close by, and lots of places to wander. We are not Disney World. We are quite pleased to be 'all natural'.

I'm a writer and actor, based in Atlanta. I travel a lot. My wife and I bought this place as an escape from the road. It has been that, and more!

GREAT LOCATON, GREAT SCENERY, VERY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the cabin. Almost everything you need is included in the cabin, and it's high on the bank near the lake, so you have a very good "mountain view." The cabin was clean, comfortable, well-appointed, and very homey. It felt very private and comfortable, and we had a great time. One of the best family vacations we've ever had. I highly recommend the area and this cabin.

Nice and neat cabin. A beautiful lake in a great location. You have got the lake, lots of hiking, and white water rafting. All within twenty-miles of the cabin. We really enjoyed our stay. The Cloningers were very efficient and easy to deal with in every aspect. Hope to go back soon.

PERFECT SERENITY

  • 5 of 5
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Grace Cottage. What an amazing location and view. It felt like we lived in the treetops, and had the best view of the turquoise lake below, which was the perfect temperature and so crystal clear. I felt like a kid again!

We had everything we needed for a perfect vacation...Peace and quiet and NO DISTRACTIONS! No wifi is a good thing...every parent should try unplugging from the world and plugging into their children 100%. I have a new perspective on how I want to be more present for my kids. We made memories swimming and cannonballing around the dock, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, grilling out, making pudgy pies and smores. There is plenty to do within 30-75 minutes from the cabin, so you can venture out and take in the area. We recommend Dillsboro Rafting Company for a Class I and II whitewater float trip. Our kids (ages 5, 6, 7) loved it! We enjoyed spending time together inside, too. The sound of rain, animals, insects, birds, it's amazing how your spirit awakens when you're in nature.

The cabin was cozy like being home. We had everything we needed. The beds were comfy. There were plenty of towels. The kitchen was completely stocked so we could cook anything we wanted. There are tons of movies to watch (since satellite doesn't come in all the time). It was the perfect amount of space for 5 of us. The tap water tasted like water! Not bleach! And it was cold. The weather couldn't have been better for us. Brief rains didn't deter us from having fun. We never needed AC, since it was the perfect climate to keep the house open the entire time. The neighbors were friendly, too. I highly recommend this cottage for a small family or a romantic trip.

AUTUMN VACATION

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed our week at Grace Cottage. The weather was great and the fall colors were brilliant. To top it off we spent several days kayaking on this wonderful lake. Grace Cottage is clean, well maintained and we found it to be very adequate. The owner phoned early in our visit to be sure everything was satisfactory. All of the people we met were very friendly. The Ingles store in Andrews had everything we needed. Having a boat launch near the cottage made launching the kayaks easy since the lake was much lower than normal. During the evening we enjoyed the fireplace and a couple of movies from the owners collection. We would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a very quiet place to spend a week in the fall.

NICHOLS FAMILY

This our first trip to Lake Nantahala and we loved it. The cottage was charming and so peaceful. The lake was so pretty and we enjoyed fishing, canoeing and swimming in it daily. The owner was very gracious and made us feel at home. We enjoyed the nearby attractions such as horse-back riding and river rafting. The people of Andrews were very friendly to our family. We hope to return one day.

This is why you visit the mountains - appropriate amount of technology, access to a canoe and dock, an enjoyable hike to and from the lake, beautiful hiking right around the corner, and great road and mountain biking. Our two boys (5 and 2) loved the bunk beds, my mother-in-law enjoyed reading on the porch while enjoying the view, and our family spent countless hours in the canoe or in the water. We grilled, played games, enjoyed some music, watched the storms come in, and felt at home without feeling overwhelmed. And the hosts were communicative and timely with everything.

Simple is not an insult when it is done well. Grace Cottage is a testament to this.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Matthew, for the great review! It almost makes me want to go there myself! I wish i could ... we've got a renter this week, and next. I desperately need to escape to do some writing. Alas ... i'm stuck in the suburbs of Atlanta.
Blessings to you!
