We are a retired married couple from the busy city of Miami, Fl and enjoy the peace and tranquility that this house provides for us.
Raul Echarte purchased this house in 2005
One of the main reasons why we chose to buy is because of the national preserve in front of the house. The view that you see will never change; so you have no worries of any other houses destroying your gorgeous outdoors views.
Being right on the lake is very nice and convenient. We park the boat on the dock and its ready to go in the morning no dealing with the dock master. just in the boat and out to enjoy the beautiful lake.
This is a very special home on a very special lake in a very special lakeside community.
With a terrific location on a wide section of the lake, the home has a truly commanding view of the lake and opposite shoreline.
Its southern exposure means a beautiful lakeside sunrise to the home’s left, a beautiful lakeside sunset to the home’s right, and a gentle sunlight all day that makes the home’s beautiful interior wood glow golden.
The community is the charming Town of Lake Santeetlah (www.townoflakesanteetlah.org) , with winding perimeter and upper roads of a single lane and little traffic, perfect for leisurely walking.
We met numerous residents on our walks around the community and enjoyed many a warm and friendly conversation.
We are two couples who live in lakeside homes ourselves and expect much from a lake.
Lake Santeetlah met our highest expectations.
We believe this home is priced very attractively and represents an exceedingly good value.
We could not recommend this home more highly to anyone looking for elegant lakeside living, either as a couple or couple of couples, or as a family with many adventurous children in tow.
Certainly, our experience was a very good one, and we plan to be back.
Our family ( 6 adults 5 kids) had a perfect week on a beautiful lake in a very nice home . What more could we ask for .
My family and I have stayed on Lake Santeetlah for several years in a row, each time in a different house. This one has been the best for our large group (12 adults and 2 kids). Well laid out, lots of beds, very nice location on the lake. The dock is great for swimming off of and docking boats and/or jet skis. We will definitely be interested in staying at this house again!
This is my second year staying in this vacation rental. The home is lovely and clean. If there's a problem the caretakers right there take care of it for you. It's so enjoyable to sit by the lake and sip your coffee. The area is quiet. I love it. i would stay there again.
Great cell reception (Verizon)
Large dining area
We have stayed at this property for the last 2 years. It is such a beautiful place. Very large and comfortable with plenty of room to spread out in. The lake view is breathtaking. It is so quite here we never want to leave. Staying here you are close to everything, Robbinsville, The Dragon, Fontana Village. There are so many wonderful roads to travel while visiting here.
This is the second year we have rented this home and will keep going back. We get a group of our friends and rent the house for the week. Everything you need is there and what a beautiful view of the lake and mountains. I only wish we could stay longer to be able to see everything there is to see and to be able to spend time on the lake. Sitting on the deck watching the sun rise is the best part of the day. You can't go wrong if you rented this house. The owner is easy to work with and if you need anything there is someone to call.
new house address is 472 Cherokee Trail but google map the old address at 780 Cherokee Trail
