Overview

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'.

Chillin' at Lake Nantahala

Chillin' at Lake Nantahala
  • 5 of 5
Grace Cottage was a perfect place to unwind, relax, get in a few hikes and generally escape from everyday pressures. The accommodations were very adequate and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The bed in the master BR was firm and comfortable for even a big guy, which was a plus. The deck and dock were two good places to hang out and watch nature do her thing morning and afternoon. The chickadees made short work of the bird feeder contents, which we refilled daily. There was little activity on the lake except fishermen and a few late afternoon boaters, which made for good kayaking. There was the canoe, which we didn't use much. A second kayak would be a definite plus, but we made good use of the one at the cottage. We also hiked several parts of the AT, including Wasser Bald and Wayah Bald. Both are within a 30 minute drive and offer great views from the summit. The hike to Huckleberry Knob on the Cherohala Skyway was also a real treat, about an hour's drive away. We didn't float the whitewater at Nantahala George, but will do that next trip that we hope to make next summer. Grace Cottage made a great home base for all our outdoor adventures. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!

Fun and beauty

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The house was clean and tidy--the kitchen was well stocked and the movies were fun to have. The view and lake are beautiful. We really liked the hike to and from the dock and appreciated the available boats and floaties. The owner responds quickly and is very easy to work with. Thanks for a great weekend.

Summer 2014 Vacation in North Carolina

  • 4 of 5
My family really liked the cottage. Beautiful view of the lake. Very peaceful except when the next door neighbours visited on the weekend. They have a dog and he barks a lot. Nice patio with a gas grill. There is a fire place but we did not use. Kitchen had a dishwasher which is nice when on vacation. There is a washer and dryer which is great when traveling with kids. The beds were very comfortable. The only reason I cannot give the cottage 5 stars is that the stairs that lead to the lake only go half way and then you have to walk on a dirt path. It rains almost every night in the mountains so that path gets slippery and can be dangerous to walk on. I suggest the owners put mulch on the path. They have a nice dock on the lake. They provide chairs. There is a small canoe that the owners kindly let the renters use but the seats are broken so we folded towels and sat on those and that worked out juts fine. There was also a large inner tube, noodles and life jackets available. The surrounding area is very beautiful. The town of Andrews has a Antique store and a nice hamburger stand. You can also do your grocery shopping. Within an hours drive you can see waterfalls, get to the Smokey Mountains and go hiking and there is the Smokey Mountain Railroad which my children enjoyed, ages 10 and 17.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Lisa, for the kind words! I'm always tinkering around with our path to the lake, and adding mulch is a great idea. I'm, slowly but surely, adding steps all the way down the hill ... a fun project when I'm up there! Blessings!

Wonderful Second Trip!

  • 5 of 5
After our first trip to Grace Cottage 4 years ago, my kids have been begging us to return. We did! And we loved every minute. From kayaking, canoeing, and swimming in the lake all day, to finding and exploring that elusive waterfall around the corner of the lake, to splurging on a pontoon boat for the day and finally trying out the tube--all was relaxing, fun, and confirmed that this is the perfect place to stay! The homey feel of the cottage is so relaxing after an active day and we enjoyed a lot of family time without the ever persistent distraction of cell phone service! Can't wait to be back already!!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Dalia! I'm glad the second trip was as fun as the first one! And (of course!) we look forward to you coming again. It IS amazing what getting away from the "digital world" for a few days will do for a family. Blessings!

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.
