Great vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently visited this cabin for our anniversary. We could not have been more pleased with our trip. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, inside and outside. The furnishings were extremely nice.There are numerous things to do at the cabin such as playing pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi, going out in the canoe, roasting marshmallows in the firepit, or just relaxing with a good book on the deck. This is by no means a typical cabin that you can rent. Our favorite place to be at the cabin was out on deck overlooking the lake and mountains. We were able to see 4 deer by the lake one morning, and then 3 deer in the driveway later that evening. The scenery is amazing! There is also lots to do in the area, such as whitewater rafting, horseback riding, and hiking. We can't wait to plan our next trip back. We have stayed in numerous cabins in the "Great Smokies", but none compare to this cabin! Serenity Cove is the perfect name for this place!

This was our second time staying at Serenity Cove. Beautiful property in gorgeous setting.

One significant improvement from our last stay was the dock! Really nice now. We hung out on it a lot. Overall, our vacation was really a much needed retreat. Lots of family QT. Will definitely stay here again. Only recommendation is to upgrade the coffee maker, LOL.

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Clean and comfortable for Thanksgiving break.

The home has plenty of room and "extras." We loved roasting s'mores and hot dogs at the fire pit under the night sky. The lake was quiet...and fun to explore. We hope to be back!

What's not to Love about this Luxury Home?!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 loved every aspect of this Home away from Home. This place has it all! Greg, the owner, did a fantastic job filling the Luxury lakefront home with every amenity you can think of. We didn't need to bring much. Tubes, skiis, fishing poles, life vests, kayaks, canoe, fire pit (with plenty of firewood), dvds, stocked kitchen, hot tub, pool table, multiple TV's etc, etc, get the point! He even had starter logs near the fire pit for the novice fire builders out there. If the Lakefront Home is the Star then Lake Nantahala is def the co star! It was clear and clean and everyone we encountered on the Lake was friendly and helpful. After spending a week at the property it was clear that we had one of a handful of Gems on the lake. The Cove that it sits on is as private as it gets. We had our own swimming area that was protected by a no wake zone. Our kids made great use of this aspect of the vacation and we had no worries in terms of safety.

The property was clean and well maintained from top to bottom.

Greg is an amazing owner/manager and you can tell he takes pride in providing a great property for rent.

The Lake's End Marina at the far East side of the lake is fantastic. We rented boats from them during the week and they couldn't have been more helpful. We also went to Ridge Runner's Zip Line Tours and they were awesome too!! Other than that we stayed mainly on the property and enjoyed the Lake as much as we could. There was no need to go anywhere else! This place had it ALL!!! I would recommend this to friends and relatives and we will def be back in the near future and we hope to make it a tradition. We talked about going back to the lake and trying different properties but we talk ourselves out of that because we may be extremely disappointed if we find another place that isn't as impressive as this one. We can not think of anything that could've been better. The views, the lake, the house itself, the people, the hummingbirds on the deck, the hot tub, the hammock, and Greg the owner make this Luxury Loghome a must stay!! You will not be disappointed!
