Overview

About the property

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.

Cherohala Skyway - 25 minutes from Cabin

Nantahala Gorge - 20 minutes from Cabin

About Virginia Acord

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, 26 21, and 19.

Why Virginia Acord 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.

Plenty of room and dynamic views for 12!!

  • 5 of 5

Hard to say what our group loved the most of this cabin! The seclusion was great, no people, houses, etc to disrupt us or us to them!! Views on the porch where we stayed most of the time and star gazing around the fire pit at night. House is really close to the NOC after you come down the mountain road, where we zipped yesterday-perfect weather, just not much leaf color this year. Everything seemed only 30 minutes any way you went, but loved the fact we had the first level for our kids and their kids to have their own "suite". Main level was great for my 93 yr old Dad with his own bed and bath and on same floor my husband and I and our 2 dogs shared a huge master bed/bath, then on the third level were 3 beds and bath for my brother and his family-great to have the space- can't even imagine the view when the water is back up or when the leaves peak.. Beauty at its finest I'm sure of it, Thanks for sharing your home!!

Absolutely Gorgeous!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to the mountains a couple times a year to motorcycle ride through the mountains and your home is one of our favorites. There was plenty of room for everyone and your back porch was wonderful! We spent all our time out there. I don’t think we ever turned on the tv! The view was gorgeous! After reading previous reviews on your driveway we were a little leary but it wasn’t bad at all. And we loved how private it was.

Thank you for sharing your home! We will definitely book again!!

Great house with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

Nice house with plenty of room. My wife and I and our three children and their families spent a week there. We are all going back next year if it is available. Rural area with lots of privacy which is what we wanted. Many attractions and things to do within 30 minute drive. Great owners to work with. We have gone to the beach each summer for 25 years. Tired of the crowds and expense.

The value you get for the price is great!

  • 5 of 5

The views are breathtaking and we had so much fun around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. The house had lots of room for everyone and all the amenities that we needed.
