Fontana Passion Lake Lodge is a luxury 5 bedroom log home directly on Fontana Lake with a private dock/slide. This log home is located in a secluded, quiet, remote, scenic, and peaceful vacation escape destination in the smoky mountains of North Carolina.
Fontana Lake is a TVA managed lake and water levels vary throughout the year. The lake is slowly drawn down (not drained) after labor day until March and is about 50 linear feet lower during the winter months (lake depth over 200 feet in areas) which means the dock is not floating from November until April and rests on the shore bank during that time. Guests can still access the water by walking off the concrete steps and walking down the shore bank.
The house is located near the end of a one lane hard packed dirt/gravel road. In the very rare event that a vehicle is encountered coming in the opposite directions, guests can safely pull over or back up a little to let the other car pass or vice versa.
If this property is booked on the up to date calendar, please check availability for our 3 bedroom cabin on Fontana Lake VRBO #499936.

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.

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!
Our family spent a wonderful week relaxing at the Fontana Passion Lake Lodge. The home is large and we all had ample space to enjoy and not drive each other crazy. The kitchen is beautiful and the table fit all 11 of us. Robbinsville was a short 20 min drive to get groceries. The lake is amazing. My son and I caught a bass, sunfish and crappie. We all had a great vacation and would love to visit again.
Wonderful house with lots of amenities
I rented this house for my annual "guy trip." Our group consisted of 8 buddies from mid-40's to late 70's. We spent a wonderful week together, cooking all our own meals, cruising the lake, fishing on the lake and in local rivers, playing pool and ping pong, hanging around on the deck overlooking the lake, lounging in the hot tub, and watching movies in the house's theater. The house was well decorated, the beds were comfortable and had ample linens, the kitchen was well supplied, the washer and dryer came in handy, and there were plenty of places for us to hang out. We especially enjoyed the movie room with its 12-foot wide screen and Bose surround system. (Pro tip: leave the theater door open during the movie because the projector tends to heat up the room a bit; just turn the lights down in the pool room so the theater stays dark.) We didn't make use of the video game systems. The lake itself is a great attraction: beautiful emerald green water, with almost no development. We encountered fewer than a dozen other boats in the seven days we were there. Property owner Gaylene was very responsive and proactive in her communications. We hope to come back!
Beautiful cabin. Pictures don't do it justice!
Great home and great views
Such a wonderful place to get away for the week. The house had everything we needed to cook and clean up after ourselves. It accommodated 11 of us perfectly. It was pretty cold during our stay but the hot tub was a hit and there was still always something to do.
We had a Wonderful Time. I had a chance to meet the property manager and the owner. Such wonderful people. We will definitely vist again.
