About Dwight Houser

My name is Dwight Houser. I'm retired from at&t. My wife, Liz, works with special needs children and has a small antique business in Marietta, Ga. Our daughter Brittany is a graduate of the University of Georgia and works in Alpharetta. Our son graduated from Georgia College and State University served in Africa for the Peace Corps and is currently in graduate school at the University of Georgia.

Dwight Houser purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Dwight Houser chose Lake Nantahala

Many years of searching by my wife and children resulted in discovering Nantahala Lake and our dream home. After the first visit, it was clear that Nantahala Lake was the place. We looked at many beautiful homes but this one had everything we had dreamed of.

What makes this cabin unique

You will enjoy easy access to our house. You will experience a view that is second to none, on the lake. Once there, the dock is only a few yards from the house. A new fire pit and outdoor cooking and eating area are just a few feet from the lake. We have kayaks, a canoe and floats to enjoy the water. If you'd like to water ski or explore water falls, the marina is close and you can rent the boat of your choice.

Fabulous Place for a Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Hooked by the View (the first coming a few years back). The place is in fabulous shape, and the new fire pit on the lower deck is ideal for relaxing in the evening. Our group included folks from ages 8 to 73, and everyone found exactly what they were looking for. Dwight takes great care of the place, and is very accommodating and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a week on Nantahala Lake, you won't do any better than Hooked by the View!

amazing week in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Hooked by the View is the best title for this house! We enjoyed our time more than we can say. No cell service for a week and limited wifi made us really disconnect and just have some fun! Hooked by the View had everything that we needed for our entire stay! We enjoyed the dock, kayaks that got us to "treasure island" many of times and any of the 3 porches for a little quiet time or watching the rain. While we were there we also went white water rafting and hiked 3 different amazing water falls! So many memories were made!!! Thank you a ton!

Beautiful house with gorgeous views and all the amenities of home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed (2 families) for a wonderful weekend in December. Talk about a gorgeous home and setting! Everything is kept very clean and up-to-date. The living/kitchen area is very spacious and open for groups to hang out, and the massive decks overlooking the lake are filled with rockers and tables to take in the breathtaking views. The beds are very comfortable. While we were there, the weather was unseasonably warm so we were able to utilize the canoe (they also have kayaks, and supply plenty of life jackets) to take the kids for rides around the lake. We got in later on Friday evening, so the drive to the cabin was a little tenuous in the dark, but upon arrival all of your tensions melt away. Dwight is very attentive and easy to work with -- you can tell he loves his home. The best GPS app to find the home is "Waze," which helped us a lot! My only regret is that we didn't book a longer stay.

Great place on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific Thanksgiving holiday at 'Hooked by the View'! The cabin is well appointed, spacious, and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get away to Nantahala Lake. The only criticism I have of the property is that the sign for the property is in the wrong place altogether. If you were to follow the sign you would turn into the wrong driveway, it is actually two houses down. GPS cuts off once you reach Big Choga Rd, not a big deal but be prepared to find things the old fashioned way. Recommend four wheel drive, but really not that bad of an approach up the mountain. Great place, would love to go back again!

Relaxing Retreat by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of 8 adults and 2 children had a great week at "Hooked by the View". The owner, Dwight, was very prompt with his responses, and easy to work with. The house is nicely furnished in a cozy country lodge style, very comfortable, and the views are wonderful . Having a living area along with the bedroom and bathroom on the lower level worked really well, as it gave our son and daughter-in-law a private family area of their own, and a quiet place for their 2 small children during naps and bedtime. We enjoyed having lots of places to sit on the decks with a glass of wine or cup of coffee. The canoe and kayaks were used many times for fishing and exploring the lake. If you are looking for a peaceful place to relax and unwind on the water, this house fits the bill!
