The Great Family Escape!

What a beautiful place to stay in the mountains and a great place to leave it all behind. Being a whitewater kayaker, I frequent this area often and I never knew this gem was up here. Lake Nantahala is just a beautiful mountain lake. Whether you are tubing behind a boat or taking a peaceful morning or evening paddle, this lake is just a perfect place to visit. The house sits just above the lake so you get a great view overlooking the lake and it is just a short walk in you are right in the water. You could not ask for a better place. It had plenty of room for our large family and you never run out of things to do. Our family loves water activities so this was a week in heaven.
If you do go out to see the surrounding attractions, the drive is not bad. Only about 20 minutes and you are right in the thick of the Nantahala Outdoor Center and Bryson City is only another 15 minutes north. But the best thing about this place is you really do not have to leave to enjoy yourself. With water skiing/tubing, kayaking and swimming - we always had plenty to do and just sitting on the dock admiring the beautiful view was just as enjoyable as the other activities.
The homeowner was very hospitable. Not going through a rental agency, you get a more personal feel for the house. We spoke just before arriving and she basically said here is the key - enjoy our home & the lake and just lock up when you leave. It was really that simple. You cannot put a price tag on the family time we shared during our week here. It will always be something that I remember and I hope we are lucky enough to come back. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
