Lake Nantahala Lodge Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms + Loft + Den - 2.5+ Baths - (Sleeps 8-10)

Exceptional Log Home with breath-taking views of Lake and Mountains. Walk down the driveway to boat slip and lake with private cove and picnic area exclusively for home owners.

This home boasts a Chalet style glass wall of windows overlooking lake, open great room with enormous 3-tier antler chandelier, top-of-the line leather and rustic lodge furniture, and professionally selected fabrics, bedding and décor.

There are 3 bedrooms with a king bed and 2 queens, and a pullout full size bed in lower level den. The bear-themed loft has 2 twins perfect for a children’s hideaway. Firepit and hot tub are a hit with everyone who has stayed.

Perfect for a romantic escape, quiet family retreat, or fun get together with friends. Swim and fish in the cove or explore the immediate area. There is no shortage of activities for the adventurous! Enjoy an outdoors-man's paradise with easy access to pontoon rentals, whitewater rafting on the Nantahala or Ocoee rivers, kayaking, canoeing, or hiking and biking on Wayah Bald.

We provide a recommended list of nearby activities, grocers and restaurants complete with phone numbers and directions for your family to enjoy.

Nantahala is truly unlike any lake in the southeast. The water quality is unmatched and the lake is large enough to support any of your hobbies including fishing, boating or skiing.

This centrally located home provides a much-needed break from the Florida heat, a welcome rest from crowded Atlanta and a convenient point for exploring the Highlands or Asheville, about an hour away.

The home does not have internet or cell phone coverage but does have 2 TV's, weber grill, hot tub, firepit, gas fireplace and great opportunities for star gazing, relaxing and great conversations.

(Near Andrews, NC, Franklin, NC, Murphy, NC, Bryson City, NC, Asheville, NC, Hayesville, NC and Smoky Mountain National Park. Also near Hiawassee, Ga and Lake Chatuge in Georgia. )

About Chris

We live in Atlanta and found this property, I designed the house with our builder and it was ready to move in 2005. We are a busy family of four and love going up to our house to get away from the 4MM people in Atlanta.

Chris purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Chris chose Lake Nantahala

I designed the house for rental and vacation, my wife decorated for our 2nd house and retirement location. You will see that she never really wanted to rent it, and put a lot of time in the decor in the house. The view is AMAZING and I can promise you that it will be 'even better than the pictures' We love the pace and the rustic feel of the area. The walk to the the boat area is close given the steep mountain lake terrain, but you are truly in the woods when you are at our house.

Incredible stay

  • 4 of 5

Took the 4 kids to the mountains and had a wonderful relaxing stay! No Internet was great since our 17 year old daughter loves to text a ton:).

We even went boating, biking and out son actually caught a pretty big bass on the docks below even though we were told fishing in April was slim to none.

Excellent house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome for our large group, which varied in ages from 3 to 55+. The decorations and furniture were top quality, and no detail was overlooked. The owners did a great job of providing information on things to do in the area, and our group took advantage of that by going tubing and swimming on the lake as well as zip lining, white water rafting, horseback riding, gem mining and fishing. We also had plenty of time to relax in the jacuzzi and grill dinner on the deck.

The house had all of the amenities and supplies necessary. It was clean and fully stocked when we got there, reducing the need to leave and buy more supplies (with the exception of food). The views of the lake from the deck were amazing, especially in the early morning, or evening sun. The kids enjoyed the loft tremendously which was stocked with games for them to play. The house provided plenty of space for our large group to hang together, or get some alone time if necessary. Everything was clearly labeled (including all the light switches) and instructions were available for amenities such as the fireplace and jacuzzi. the decorations fit the theme perfectly, I just don't know how the owners found so many moose themed items.

It was truely a joy to stay at the Lost Moose Lodge, and would definitely recommend it to friends and family. It was a great place for a great lake vacation.

Exceeding our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house is terrific! Has a spectacular view of the lake and mountains from the hot tub and rocking chairs on the upper deck off the main living area and the master bedroom. The house is well designed to also take advantage of the views from the interior of the house. All of the rooms are very well decorated with high-quality furniture and accessories. Living room/kitchen/dining area with fireplace and great view was a perfect place for our group to spend time together. And the upper loft and downstairs den also provided plenty of spaces for the individuals in our group to have some quiet time alone. The swing on the lower deck was a great place for an afternoon nap! The kitchen is well equipped and had all the cookware, dishes, serving dishes, utensils and wine glasses our group could have possibly needed! The owners did a great job of making this an enjoyable experience providing information on things to do in the area, instructions on how to operate things in the house, candles on the mantle, hearth and dining table, every detail taken care of...including the moose and bear slippers left at the foot of the bed! The pictures of the house are nice...the house is even nicer! We felt more like we were staying in a friend's home than a rental property.

Lost in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to the Great Smokey’s and we were treated to the finest! We were looking for a quite get away and we found it. Absolutely the best view in the mountains and solitude. Lost Moose Lodge is our goal for next year. The decor was perfect "Mountain Cabin" with all the extra special touches.
