Topton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A great lake escape, is just what it says. Escape from your frantic, fast paced, stressed out life. Come up to the lake and relax on any of the three decks or outside in the hot tub overlooking the lake on a quiet cove; two minutes from the main lake by boat. Paddle around the lake on the two available kayaks or the canoe!! If the evenings are a little chilly turn on one of the two gas fireplaces,(one in the loft, one on the main floor).

We are close to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Nantahala National Park for Hiking the Appalachian and Bartram Trails. The Nantahala Outdoor Center for rafting, kayaking and biking is just a 45 minute beautiful ride away.

This a a wonderful ROMANTIC getaway for couples or FUN for small families. What an opportunity to be able to spend quality time together and reconnect while being in the great outdoors.

Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Nice clean cabin, perfect get away for 4 people. Not to many places will let you stay less than a week, so to be able to pop out there for a 3 day get away is great.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

We (couple in our late 40's) had traveled to Western NC several times before, staying in the Bryson City area, but this trip found us happily kicking back for a week at the lovely Great Lake Escape cabin on Nantahala Lake in late July.

Cherisse made it so easy to relax and refresh - smooth reservations, clear directions (roads can be curvy in this area), exceptionally clean and well-maintained cabin. It had everything we needed and more - well supplied kitchen tools/appliances, board games, books/magazines, hot tub, etc.; we had fun using the kayaks a couple times to explore the pretty lake, swimming in the cove, a little star-gazing at night.

Nearby we did some whitewater kayaking on Nantahala River (with Adventurous Fast Rivers), hanging out at Nantahala Outdoor Center, exploring Bryson City area, visiting Wayah Bald lookout, Rufus Morgan trail and waterfalls, antiquing in Franklin NC area, and general sightseeing.

We look forward to staying here again someday, thanks to Cherisse for her thoughtfulness in making our stay a great one, A Great Lake Escape is a special place.

Beautiful Home and Area

  • 5 of 5

We had a long weekend getaway. A Great Lake Escape was exactly that! Quiet and Peaceful. Beautiful view of the cove, sitting outside you could hear a waterfall somewhere. It definitely was a great escape from it all!

Wonderful Getawy

  • 4 of 5

My fiancee and I stayed 3 nights in April, 2016 and had a wonderful relaxing weekend. The cabin is fully equipped for all needs, just make sure you pack all your groceries, as you are not going to want to drive out to get them. The cabin is beautiful inside and out, very well maintained and the owner is very accommodating and responsive. We had a great time and will be back!.

Great place to get away from it all!!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were celebrating our 15 yr anniversary and wanting to be away from it all, well we found the place. This cabin is so cute with all the comforts of home. A dock to fish from ( you can see the fish swimming around) a canoe to take fishing, pack a lunch you can be gone all day. This was some of the BEST fish I have had. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Fishing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My father-in-law and I were looking planning a fishing trip and found this gem. What a great experience! The cabin was as described and depicting in the pictures; clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Access to the water was within a 100 foot walk to the dock, giving us the ability to keep the boat in the water. Fishing would have been better if the weather had cooperated (cold front moved in), but we were still lucky enough to go home with a few dinners. We will definitely be making a trip back to Nantahala Lake next year; we just hope that the cabin in available to use again, as it was a major factor in us enjoying our trip. Cherrise knows how to take care of her guests and ensure that the trip goes smoothly, from the great communication to details throughout the process. Thank you!!
