THE LAKEHOUSE

If you are looking for a classic mountain getaway, with a superb location in the Nantahala National Forest - on Lake Nantahala - this is your place! By 'classic' we mean it was built by our children's great-grandparents as a mountain vacation home and fishing base back in the '60s. It is NOT a million dollar McMansion thrown up a few years ago that will cost a fortune to rent. It's our family lakehouse. And, we're happy to rent it to you.

This vacation get-away is located on Lake Nantahala with direct access to a private dock and absolutely beautiful views of the lake and mountains. The lake can be enjoyed for swimming, fishing and boating. Many other outdoor activities are within arms reach of the property.

The location of the house on the lake is something special, a place where you can retreat to get away from the grind of normal life. It is a true escape, nestled away in a stand of enormous poplar trees with a view of the large lake area in front of the distant natural dam. The hours melt away as you settle into a life of mountain informality, fantastic natural surroundings and wonderful fellowship with family and friends.

The house was one of the first properties built on the lake, and has been maintained and updated with modern amenities. The two-level house is ideal for families and groups of friends. The upper (driveway) level has two bedrooms and one large sleeping area with a screened-off double bed, two single beds and a couch bed. The lower level features a family room with a wood burning fireplace, a large, well-equipped kitchen, and an outside patio facing the lake with a gas grill. It has all the character of a family mountain cabin, with added features like remodeled kitchen, washer/dryer, cable TV, and DVD/VCR.

There is a public boat landing nearby, within 5 minutes by car or a short 15 minute walk. A canoe is included along with paddles and personal floatation devices.

About The Owner

Natives of NC and SC with a number of family members living in points North and West.

The Owner purchased this house in 1962

Why The Owner chose Lake Nantahala

The house was built by our father and mother when there were only a few houses on the lake. The land it was built on was part of a large tract of land that our parents bought back when the Nantahala Lake was known to only a few local mountain folk. It has been in our family ever since.

To say that there are countless memories of visits and gatherings of family and friends is a huge understatement. We gather here during three seasons (it's a bit cold in the winter so it is generally closed then) and enjoy the wonderful scenery and all that mountain fresh air.

This house is a true treasure and was built by our father and other local mountain men. The stone steps to the lake were laid by a local mason. The trees, including two apple trees and a pear tree, were planted by our father. And to this day I tend to and add to our mother's wonderful selection of native plants that add different colors to the landscape throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

Nature, the lake, the fresh mountain air and communion with loved ones.

What a great place! Description was very accurate, property was clean and well maintained (the kitchen has everything you will need). The owners were great and responded to all questions right away. We would (and have already) recommended this house to a few friends.
All 3 children of our children said that this was their favorite vacation ever - better than Disney World! We will be back next summer and for years to come! Thank you for sharing your wonderful house on one of the best spots on the lake!

Beautiful view, great house!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd summer visiting this house on Lake Nantahala. We love the location on the lake, the easy accessibility to the dock (many homes on the lake require a workout to get to/from the dock), and the layout of the house. It's not fancy, but the kitchen is nicely updated and the extra sleeping area upstairs is great for a family. We also enjoy the close proximity to the Nantahala River for kayaking and nearby hiking trails.

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Lakehouse for over a week and had the greatest time over there! The surroundings are astonishing and the house provided all the comfort we could hope for.

In fact, we enjoyed our stay so much that we'll come back this summer!

Amazing location and very relaxing atmosphere

  • 5 of 5
On our trip through the south of the USA, we stayed 4 nights at the Lake House. It is an amazing place: when you wake up you can dive into the lake and then enjoy a delicious breakfast with a beautiful view. The house is fully equipped and has a very relaxing atmosphere. An ideal place to get away from it all!

The Lake View is better than TV

My friends and I drove to beautiful Lake Nantahala, NC to stay at this classic summer cabin. In fact, the word Nantahala in Cherokee means “land of the noon day sun” as was evident during our stay. Driving down back roads, we saw anglers fishing for trout in the tributaries. Duke Power’s hydro pipes provide whitewater opportunities for kayakers and rafters when they release water during the day. Back at the cabin, there were plenty of things to do: mountain biking, swimming, hiking the Appalachian Trail, sun bathing, relaxing, or reading a book. It was the perfect place for the whole family (and our dogs) as we celebrated our friend’s birthday. Furthermore, the newly updated kitchen made it easy to prepare, cook, and serve delectable food. And the privacy made us feel like we had the lake to ourselves. Lastly, the photos of the lake look even more majestic when you visit. We cannot wait to come back.

I only wish I could stay longer

I can't imagine a more perfect place to relax and enjoy nature. I have been coming to this area for years to enjoy the areas cycling and rafting opportunities. Lake Nantahala has to be one of the most beautiful places on earth and this house gives you the "lake cabin" feel that completes the experience.

Some of the best whitewater in the USA is within 1-3 hours driving distance. Also, fantastic road and mountain biking, as well as hiking are accessible within minutes. The Appalachian Trail is 7 miles away, and Bartram Trail is within 2 miles. The Nantahala River (home of the Nantahala Outdoor Center www.noc.com) is 12 miles away.

Fishing on the lake and in nearby rivers is also very good. Plenty of local advice can be had through local tackle and outdoor stores.

The Cherokee Indian Reservation is a 1 hr drive and has a casino, souvenirs and a wonderful, family-friendly performance called Unto These Hills (http://www.cherokee-nc.com/index.php?page=9) documenting the Trail of Tears.
