Topton Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom

Breathtaking view of the Lake! Very convenient to lake, restaurant/marina allows public swimming and general store! All in walking distance! At our private lakeshore area enjoy swimming, canoeing fishing, etc. Cabin home is totally remodeled, with new kitchen appliances, washer and dryer. View from kitchen is inspiring! Ten-by-28-foot covered porch is great for entertaining. Stair steps off of deck go to the private road down, then across Wayah road, then to the lake. The sunset views are awesome from this property! A great relaxing place to enjoy the water and views of Nantahala on a budget!

We really hated to leave the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the rental cabin and lake. In the past, we had been to Bryson City, but never made it to the lake. My wife and I took our own kayaks but also used the canoes that were provided. The water was fantastic and there are many places to explore in and around the lake. We are really happy about finding this place..... The hot tub was nice after a long day of hiking and paddling around the lake......Everything was great! :)

Best family vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 of us) and I loved this very clean and perfectly placed cabin. We enjoyed the hot tub and the canoes that were provided. Nantahala Lake was breathtakingly gorgeous. I loved having a washer and dryer available. The kitchen had everything we needed. We loved the views. My husband and daughter loved the Bartram trail and got up early twice to hike some of both parts: one goes around the lake and one goes up to Wayah Bald. We enjoyed tubing at Deep Creek and white water rafting and waterfall sight seeing. We went to the close by marina and rented a pontoon boat and toured the lake. (You have to pay for the gas you use, btw.) We slept in both the beds and on the futons and all were comfortable. We were there in the hot summer and the AC kept the cabin cool. Alex was so friendly and accommodating. We are already talking about a return.

We had the most relaxing time at the cabin. Morning coffee over looking the lake with the mist rising. Very clean with comfortable beds. A landline phone to keep in touch with family. We used the canoes that was available. No shopping crowds, no traffic jams, just lake and relaxation time. And the hot tub was an added bonus. Planning our next visit now. Thanks Alex for allowing us the use of your VRBO.

Relaxing and Private.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the cabin. We found it a great place to just unwind. The cabin was very clean.

It had all the amenities you could want: washer, dryer, and even a dishwasher! Also had great internet access and a large flat panel TV. We did not have cell phone service, a blessing, but a landline was provided; my wife was able to keep in touch with all the people she wished.

I enjoyed the easy access to hiking, literally just outside the front door you will find the Bartram Trail.

My wife enjoyed the quiet peaceful surroundings and read her books.

We also took advantage of the deck and hot tub, taking in the beautiful sunsets, and burning a little wood in the chimenea.

Within easy walking distance is a small store that we took advantage of when we wanted some hot dog buns and the like. It's just a short drive to Andrews where we went to a nice Mexican restaurant and shopped at a full grocery store.

Alex greeted us on our arrival and was unseen afterword. He gave us his number in case we needed anything. This owner knows customer service. The way the deck is on cabin, you have complete privacy from the road and neighbors.

We were about a week preseason for the area, the white water rafters hadn't shown up yet, but that is not for my wife and I anyway. We did some looking around on the web and found there are lots of things to see or do within easy driving distance.

We recommend this property!

Amazing place! Enjoyed everyday here.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin one month before we needed to be there in order to meet other family members for a 90th birthday celebration of twins. I have to say at first, it wasn't what we were looking for, but once there, we fell in love with the place. It has everything a couple or family would need including a washer and dryer. The access is easy to get in and out of compared to other places our family members stayed around the lake. My wife and I are looking forward to booking this cabin again, just so we can spend more time enjoying the lake and surrounding area.It is a great place to come back too and relax!

A wonderful week in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We just came back to Houston after a marvelous week in Nantahala lake cabin. The cabin was beautifully renovated, clean and had all of the amenities. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed very comfortable, and the hot tub was great after a long day hiking or visiting around. The view is breathtakingly beautiful, especially at sunset. Highly recommend.
