About owner/property manager

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.

owner/property manager purchased this lodge in 2011

Why owner/property manager chose North Carolina

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."

Great getaway house and beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 adults and spent the weekend at the lake house. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and all of its amenities, everything was organized and laid out conveniently. Fontatna Lake really is a pristine lake with untapped beauty (compared to Lake Norman near Charlotte). I would definitely recommend staying here and will be booking another stay soon! Gaylene, the property owner, was great to work with.

Thanks for everything!

Dean

Bowers Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation for all of our family!!!! Fontana Passion Lake Lodge is absolutely beautiful with breath taking views. No need to go anywhere else as we took advantage of all the amenity's offered at the lodge. We rented the pontoon, used the theatre room, played pool and dined together every night for dinner. The lake was also amazing, we had tons of fun on the kyaks as well. Thank you so much Gaylene for helping to make this happen for our Family. We left our vacation with lots of great memories <3

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house as a surprise for our parents' 45th wedding anniversary. They were blown away. The house was perfect for having multiple people and generations with something to do for everyone. The lake was amazing and the dock made it so accessible. The kayaks and SUP were enjoyed by all, and we also rented the pontoon boat and jet ski. Everything was exactly as stated. The fact that we could also let our dogs share in our family vacation made it that much more special. We can't wait to come back!

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful trip with family last week. The cabin has just about everything you need! Kitchen necessities and staples are all there and ready for you. Firewood was there (but too fresh/wet to burn too well but not a major complaint...just had to work harder to keep it going). Grill, Deck, Swingset, Movie Room were big hits for all.

Cabin is big enough for everyone but private spaces for all. Great views, quiet setting, can do nothing at all and still feel like it was a great day! Location is very rural but drive to Robbinsville isn't too bad and they have about everything else you'd need.

We would visit again!
