About Gaylene de Weijer

My husband, daughter, and I love this area and this house with a passion which is why we called it Fontana Passion Lake Lodge. We love the peaceful 12,000 acre lake with 240 miles of shoreline which provides numerous opportunities for the outdoor sportsperson. We personally love to waterski, kneeboad, and kayak.

My husband is a physical therapist and I am in medical sales.

We hope you love this house and area as much as we do and come back often to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and reenergize.

Gaylene de Weijer purchased this lodge in 2011

Why Gaylene de Weijer chose Robbinsville

We have been going to this area for over 30 years and always wanted to own property there. Since 85% of property on Fontana Lake is owned by the forest service (accounts for the minimal boat traffic, unspoiled, and peaceful area )we were fortunate to find this property for sale and made our dream come true. We love the close proximity to Asheville, mountain biking, rafting, tubing at Bryson City, casinos at Cherokee, and breathtaking mountain views.

What makes this lodge unique

Directly on the lake with immediate water access and private boat dock with slide. Secluded area with minimal homes and boat traffic on lake to enjoy the scenery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I want to let you know what a wonderful time my entire family had at the lake and the lake house made it a special time for all of us. The house is absolutely gorgeous, with lovely decorations and amenities. All of the beds were very comfortable. The downstairs ice maker was a great idea as well as all of the entertainment items."

Breathtaking Smokey Mtn Oasis

Absolutely perfect stay outside of missing some basic (extra) housekeeping supplies. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a luxury getaway in the mountains!

Great secluded, luxury cabin

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, secluded cabin with plenty of space and activities for everyone. We were a extended family of 7 and 3 young children, and there was plenty to do and see for everyone, but the covered back porch overlooking the lake is incredible! Everything in the house was as described and the direct lake access was fabulous. We made some great memories over the days we stayed here. Would definitely recommend!

Peace and Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place if you like peace and quiet. Great lake access and the lake is the cleanest one I've ever been to. The house has everything you need. My only minor complaint would be that the upstairs bedrooms should have better beds.

Owner's Response: As a result of this review and some additional feedback, I now have an experienced local property management team for the cabin who will handle all guests concerns at check-in and during their stay to meet and exceed guests expectations with a total focus on hospitality and satisfaction. The upstairs beds and mattresses will be replaced.

Absolutely Beautiful, Great Family Vaction

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 14 people, 8 adults 6 kids, and there was something for everyone! We had so much fun on the boat and the kids loved tubing behind it. The Kayaks were so much fun to take out and with the minimal boat traffic in the area there wasn't much wake to compete with so it made it a lot of fun to do! Swimming off the dock was perfect and we had an overall blast. We did Deep creek tubing and that was wonderful and Bryson City is full of tons of small town charm and character. We had an amazing time and would happily go back anytime. We had a couple light bulbs go out when we were there and the cleaning crew came right out and fixed it immediately.

Wonderful 4 night Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 8 adults and 3 children, ages 8-14. We had a wonderful stay. The house over looks Fontana Lake and the view is beutiful. The house was plenty large enough for our group and we enjoyed every inch of it. There is more than enough activites to keep everyone busy even on a rainy day. We watched movies, played ping-pong and pool, jet skied, used the jacuzzi, fished and just relaxed.

A few notes:

The jet ski battery died on day 2, but the repairman was there the next day to replace it. The owner was very responsive.

As expected there is no phone service, but most of our group found this a blessing. The Wi-Fi is easily overwhelmed with several people attempting to use it, but again it was no big deal for our group.

The casino is an easy 45 minute drive away and we made the trip one night.

We also made smores in the fire pit one night.

Overall this place is awesome! I highly recommend for anyone looking for a cabin in the mountains in the summertime.
