Overview

Lake Santeetlah Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

This 3500 sq ft secluded cabin is ideal for your family getaway or a special retreat with that someone special.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a farmhouse table that seats six, and a pub table that seats four - that can be used as a game table as well.

Enjoy a breathtaking mountain/lake view from the deck while drinking your coffee or grilling, while the kids play.

If you are seeking hiking, biking, boating, fishing, scenic driving, nature photography, motorcycling, whitewater rafting, or vacationing, you will find a full array of natural destinations, quaint shops and the rich history of North Carolinas most remote county!

Graham County takes pride in it's rich heritage, local crafting, mountain music and dancing. Included in our heritage is the original people of the area, the Cherokee Nation which has an even older history.

Tail of the Dragon - 20 minutes from Cabin

Crossing Deals Gap at the Tennessee/North Carolina state line, the Dragon is considered by many as one of the world's best motorcycling and sports car roads. Anyone looking for an exciting highway adventure will enjoy this stretch of US 129.

Whitewater Adventures - 20 minutes from Cabin

The western North Carolina mountains offer some of the best whitewater rafting/paddling rivers on the east coast. The Nantahala River, only a 20-minute drive from our cabin, is one of the most popular. This Class I, II, and III river is the perfect place for the entire family to have a taste of this exciting sport.

Fontana Lake and Dam - 10 minutes from Cabin

This 29 mile long lake has more than 240 miles of almost totally undeveloped shoreline. More than 90 percent of the land around the lake is owned by either the Great Smoky Mountains National Park or the US Forest Service and development has been kept to a minimum.

Other activities Include:

Cherohala Skyway - 25 minutes from Cabin

Nantahala Gorge - 20 minutes from Cabin

Maggie Valley - 40 minutes from Cabin

Cherokee - 25 minutes from Cabin

Smoky Mountain National Park - 15 minutes from Cabin

About The Owner

David and I own Southern Heritage Woodworks in Sylvester, Georgia. (Google us if you would like more information on our company or products.) We manufacturer flooring and furniture out of reclaimed wood salvaged from old textile mills built prior to the 1920's. We have three boys, 25, 21, and 19.

Why The Owner chose Lake Santeetlah

We love to spend time at our cabin to relax and just get away from everyday life. We especially enjoy our time during the Fourth of July. All of our family travels up and we grill and go boat riding, tubing and wake boarding on Fontana Lake. The water is as clear as spring water and still refreshing in July and best of all is not crowded.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the seclusion of our cabin. We have the privacy and tranquility of sitting on the deck, drinking our coffee and enjoying nature.

Wonderful, Wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

I have NO negative comments about this vacation rental home. The house was lovely, secluded and spotless. The beds

we're very comfy. The view was outstanding! I have rented from VRBO for years even in Rome two years ago and I have to

say, this house is right up at the top of my list. Sometimes you rent a house and walk and it's lovely but cold. I walked into

this house and felt warmth and love. The six of us had a great week. Thanks Virginia for making our 50th special.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our motorcycle trip. Staying at this cabin was the perfect location for "Home Base" for riding the Tail of the Dragon area. The Cabin was very clean and spacious, with a nice big garage to park our bikes in at night. We spent every night sitting on the large covered porch enjoying the company of great friends and the views of Fontana Lake.

Amazing Views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is privately located yet local to everything you need and adequately equipped to R&R comfortably. Having a garage to park my car was a nice touch that I'm not used to with rentals of this type, nice amenity!

Very nice home!

  • 5 of 5

We just loved this home for the privacy and scenic views. It was convenient having everything there at our disposal like linens, towels and dishes etc. Plenty of parking space and use of the garage which helped when it rained. We really enjoyed our stay, despite a few days of rain (although the thunder from a top the mountain sounded awesome) and want to thank you for offering your wonderful home to visitors.
