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!

Great cabin in beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Views of the fall leaves from the deck and hot tub were amazing! The listing description was accurate and the hospitality shown to us by Alex and his son was immeasurable. The cabin had everything we needed for a nice get away. We highly recommend this property!

Amazingly beautiful view & cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

Alex's home made our family vacation absolutely wonderful! What a warm, cozy home with a breath-taking view of Lake Nantahala and the most amazing sunsets...all from the hot tub on the back porch! Our 3 kids enjoyed hot tubbing every day and they loved sleeping on their own futons in the living room every night! They didn't even use the front bedroom. The master bedroom was great with a super comfy bed too. We loved having the washer & dryer to keep our wet clothes clean and dry since we rented a boat from Nantahala Lake Marine and spent an entire day skiing, tubing, and knee boarding on this beautiful lake! Well worth every penny! We enjoyed being able to grill our meals on the back porch and enjoy making s'mores and roasting marshmallows on the outdoor stove. We spent some time out in the canoes that are provided down the hill at the water's edge. The guys even canoed around the island in the lake! Lake Nantahala is our new favorite NC mountain lake! Truly beautiful! Alex has the kitchen stocked with all the basics so everything you need is right there! We loved our trip down Wayah Rd to Dry Falls and the kids loved their first time gem mining too! We loved our time together in this beautiful place and Alex was great to work with! We made some great memories! We highly recommend this home to any family. And I'm sure we will be back!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last fall as well. I knew we would return. The view from the hot tub is unbeatable ! This year we took time for a short ride to Dry Falls. The cabin has everything you could need and very comfortable. The owners are a joy to deal with and I hope to return perhaps in spring this time.

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.
