About Polly McClendon

We built this house in Sept. 2008 after spending many summers enjoying the beautiful lake surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest, the long walks and the quiet privacy of the area. Rafting the Nantahala River is a must.

Great Family Memories Made

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Nantahala Lake. The owners were very kind and gave lots of information about the area. The home was pretty, very comfortable and well stocked. The lake was beautiful and it was a huge bonus having the boat with the rental. We enjoyed skiing, tubing, fishing, hiking, kayaking, rope swinging and exploring the lake. We absolutely loved the deck boat and we all rode comfortably and all the boating supplies were furnished. The dock was great and my boys loved fishing and swimming from the dock and we enjoyed relaxing.

We loved not having cell service and spent most nights playing cards and scrabble. The weather was cool and there were no mosquitos and flies. I would definitely recommend visiting Nantahala Lake and staying at this rental. Great family memories made at this wonderful lake house.

Great Home, Great Owners, Great Boat, Great Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time at this lake house. The owners were great to work with, very efficient and quick to respond with any question or concern. The house had everything you could need and more, and we loved feeling as if we were living in a treehouse. The boat was wonderful for tubing and exploring the lake, and the kids loved spending time jumping and swimming by the dock. Thank you so much, we had a wonderful week here!

The Kentuckians

  • 5 of 5

We are home from our wonderful vacation at your cabin. We brought the whole family plus friends and rented adjacent cabins. Everyone had a really great time and nothing was lacking in any department.....laid back and geared down! Kids enjoyed boating and exploring. We enjoyed kayaking. Some went to the shooting range and waterfall. Some spent time bass fishing. All kinds of water ski equipment. Not much desire to do anything but hang around the cabin and lake.

We thought that this would be our last visit to I'm not so sure! Thanks for all your efforts since October to steer us through booking the cabin.

Fabulous getaway, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We found this gem on and it lived up to every expectation and more! 2 families of 4 fit comfortably in this home with room to spare. The walk from the house to the lake is nicely graded and very comfortable to walk. The boat is fantastic! We had a great time taking it out and tooling around the lake. The road leading up to the home is very reasonable and easy to navigate (some roads in the area are extremely graded and this one, thankfully, was not.) Owners were great to work with. We love the area and loved the house!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Lake Nantahala! The house looks brand new, very well maintained and very comfortable. We loved the surrounding area, the woods, short walk to the lake. It is located in a very quiet and peaceful cove which is perfect for swimming and relaxing. We spend entire week exploring the lake, tubing, kayaking and swimming. The Lake is beautiful, not crowded, perfect for all kinds of water play. Everyone had so much fun we didn't want to leave! The owners were very responsive and helpful to our concerns, definitely recommend this property!

I forgot to mention that the weather was perfect! Breezy mornings and nights with lots of sun during the day, no humidity and no bugs :-) It only rained once while we were there! Just perfect!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time. The house is well maintained and much larger than the pictures show. A week off the grid (no cell phone service or internet), and everyone had fun, including the teenagers! Swimming, tubing, fishing, kayaking, rope swing on one of the islands, plenty to do. The kids were asking to return before we had left.
