About Dan Sikorra

Dan and Linda Sikorra who are owners of Fontana Realty seek to provide other families the enjoyment opportunities we've been allowed to experience over the years. We grew up the Midwest and spent time in Florida before moving to NC where we fell in love with Bryson City area after visiting the first time in 1994 with our 5 kids. We couldn't believe the beauty of the Lake, the Park and all the outdoor activities that were available. And to boot, we found Bryson City to be a very vibrant town with festivals going on all summer long. We bought our Fontana Lake lot in 96 and couldn't wait to make the move from Charlotte which took place in 2003.

Dan Sikorra purchased this house in 2006

Why Dan Sikorra chose Bryson City Area

We built this Retreat with family in mind. The privacy, yet closeness to town and the beautiful Fontana Lake views made it all the more exceptional. We couldn't have picked a better location to play on the lake or have lazy days on the deck!

What makes this house unique

Our eyes were opened, so when the opportunity availed itself, we moved from Charlotte NC, to be closer to the Smokies. We took every opportunity to vacation in Bryson City, a fun and vibrant town where we could enjoy all the surrounding outdoor activities. Our love for the land deepened as we hiked or ran trails through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park appreciating the beautiful wildlife and enjoying the hundreds of miles of mountain streams. When we wanted more action, we threw our mountain bikes in the boat and motored over to Tsali Recreation Area for some single track action. What a way to travel – the boat ride on Fontana Lake covers some of the most pristine lake wilderness areas in the southeast and if I was lucky enough to have another person with me we’d water ski on the way back.Our excitement and love for the area and the people who live here grow deeper over time. When one finds something very good, in order to truly enjoy it, it must be shared – and that is where we find ourselves today!

Dan and Linda have five grown children and eight grandchildren.
