Get Off the Grid!

  • 4 of 5

Lakeside Lodge was great. The property is huge and has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. A few updated pictures would be beneficial to this listing- the dock and hot tub are not as picture BUT the game room (pool, foosball, and theater room) were much bigger than we expected!

The two master suites and the theater area (with a huge selection of movies!) were awesome extras. Our group (7 adults) enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit area. Note: there is no gazebo bar or covering on the hot tub as pictured in this listing, it is just the hot tub. The house was clean and had a well-stocked (pots, pans, tupperware, etc.) kitchen. Plenty of extra blankets, pillows, etc. There are several wonderful deck spaces- we ate outside most nights- and the propane grill was in good shape.

The views are simply stunning of Lake Nantahala but there are lots of stairs! Once you go down to the dock/lake area you won't want to have make a trip up them for quite a while. Also (as of Sept 2015), the dock is not as pictured in this listing. It is at quite a slant and is not particularly comfortable for laying or lounging on. You would not be able to sit in chairs on it. There is a small dirt/sand beach you could sit on. Our group attributed some of this to a low lake level but not all of it, the dock could certainly use some work.

You are off the grid. You will lose cell service 15-20 minutes before getting to the house (so don't plan on using a hotspot to get internet) and the internet available was dial up which obviously won't work with tablets or phones. This was well communicated by the owners prior to arrival but it really is off the grid!

Donna was very easy to work with and provided all of the information for our weekend in a timely manner and quickly answered questions, etc. Our group would recommend Lakeside Lodge and we hope to return again!

Lakeside Lodge

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and the view of the lake is stunning! We had 10 people staying in the house and ample room for more! The entire house is decorated in a mountain theme which added a nice touch and every bedroom is very comfortable. We enjoyed the entire house, but the hot tub and theatre room were definitely a hit with the entire group. We are definitely planning to return and Greg and Donna were great to work with!

Good time, but way to many stairs.

  • 4 of 5

The overall experience was great. The pics dont show you what the rooms really look like. The pics dont do the rooms justice. Just beautiful! The stairs were horrendous. There really should be a picture of the stairs down to the dock so we would know what we were getting into.

The property and house were extremely clean!!!!! I would recommend this property to friends and family as long as they do not have small children. It was kind of dangerous for us as adults. The path way from the front door down the side of the house to the hot tub was very slippery and a few of us fell pretty hard. The stairs down to the dock a few of us fell down there as well. The rain didnt help with the slipperiness, if it didnt rain so much it wouldnt have been so bad.

We did rent a boat from the marina on the lake and it was great, great price for the 12 person pontoon boat and we had lots of fun on the lake. The dock was great to jump off from and swim near. The water was clear and wonderful.

We had 9 adults with us and it fit us all beautifully. There was plenty of room for all of us. The game room is awesome. I wish the air hockey worked, but the pool table was entertaining. The hot tub was amazing. The movie room is sooooo much more than the pics show. The reclining movie chairs and the surround sound was incredible. They should take better pics of that room. Washer and dryer worked great. The kitchen had EVERYTHING we needed. Overall great experience.

We had a wonderful vacation at the Lakeside Lodge, and I can't say enough good things about the house. It is beautiful! It is very clean and well maintained. There are a lot of activities and restaurants nearby. We especially enjoyed renting a pontoon boat one day to take the children tubing. One day was spent river rafting, which was enjoyed by all of us. GREAT BEDS!!!

Lakeside Lodge Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeside Lodge is beautiful!! It was easy to find, clean, and well-maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed the theater, which was supplied with a wide variety of movies to watch. There were lots of steps, but they were not a problem for any us. This was our 5th summer vacation in the mountains of N.C., but our first time staying on a lake. The children thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the lake off your dock. We were so glad that you had plenty of life jackets for us to use. The owner was very helpful and responded to our questions quickly. I would (and already have) recommend this place to anyone to rent. Thanks for sharing your place with us.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to secluded lakefront property the excitement built. As we unloaded all 12 of us were very eager to check out our house. Everyone was impressed with how spacious and clean it was. There actually is 4 levels! Master bedrooms upstairs and down were well equipped. The other three bedrooms were functional. Yes 5 bedrooms. The deck was fantastic with chairs and tables and a grill. Downstairs in lowest level was game room - pool table, fridge, bathroom, fooseball and TV. Outside was covered hot tub that was not functional during our stay. Stairs to lake was strenous but worth it as the dock and lake were like another world! Very peaceful as hummingbirds were seen daily. Even though there was no wireless internet and phone reception was nill it was good to not be tied to them. TV.s in smaller bedrooms not hooked up to cable or satellite. Kitchen was fantastic as was living room. We cooked out every nite and just hung out alot. We did white water rafting and some did zip lines. Our range of ages was 10-83 and great times were had by all. The owners Greg and Donna worked with us nicely throughout and took care of us by not having a hot tub. We have stayed in many homes through past fifteen years and this place was the best. I almost forgot the theatre room - unbelievable.

Thanks again!
