Why Debbie chose Lake Nantahala

WE BOUGHT THE LAND ON THE LAKE WHEN WE SAW HOW CLEAN THE WATER WAS AND THE SURROUNDING AREA. WE THEN BUILT THE HOUSE OURSELVES TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF THE VIEWS! WE ARE TRUELY IN THE MOUNTAINS-BUT ALSO HAVE GREAT VIEWS OF MOUNTAINS. THE STARS AT NIGHT ARE THE BEST! QUIET AND PEACEFUL-WHEN OUR CHILDREN WERE YOUNGER THEY PLAYED ON THE HILLS AND IN THE WATER. A CHANCE TO CONNECT AGAIN! WE LOVE IT AND YOU WILL TOO!

What makes this house unique

THE STARS AT NIGHT.

WATER OUT YOUR BACKDOOR. CLEAN AND REFRESHING.

OPEN FRESH FLOORPLAN WITH LARGE WINDOWS FOR VIEWING THE BEAUTY.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Deb,

Just wanted to thank you for the pleasure of renting your beautiful cabin on the lake from July 6th to the 13th.

I did read some of the reviews on this cabin and one person said that the pictures of the cabin are nothing like the real thing. That was so true. When we first arrived and opened the front door the view just blew me away. There were a total of 11 of us( 6 adults and 5 kids ranging in age from 1 to 13 years old ). There was plenty of room for all of us and plenty to do in the cabin with the ping pong table, chess and checkers table right by that gorgous window facing the lake, tv, games and wifi(which was a surprise because I thought you were not set up for it). We had a blast swimming in the lake and using your canoe and kayak. We also rented a boat from Dave for a day and that keep us going all day. I liked renting the boat from him because he delivered the boat right to the dock which was very convenient and his price was reasonable. We found the tree swing on the lake and the kids(young and old) loved it. The only minor problem we had was the house phone service was on and off a lot, but I wasn't expecting that to work well because of the mountains.

Thanks again Deb and please use this review as you see fit.

Another fantastic week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this wonderful lakehouse on Lake Nantahala. We had such a wonderful time the first time and had an equally wonderful trip the second time. The owners of the property have made some fantastic upgrades to the property since our visit the year before. These upgrades included a new gorgeous fire pit, beautiful outdoor decking, landscaping, and beautiful new countertops and fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen. We thought the house couldn't get any more gorgeous than it was on our first trip. We were wrong! Our kids ages 7, 12, and 16 love kayaking, canoeing, feeding the ducks, swinging from the rope swing, and just floating around the crystal clear lake.

The house was so inviting and had absolutely everything we needed or wanted. We had more than enough space and everything we needed to unplug and get away from it all. The sunsets and evenings by the fire pit were so relaxing and fun-filled.

We did rent a boat for the day from the Lakes End Marina and had a ball tubing, knee boarding, and just sightseeing. We also ventured out for a day of fun white water rafting at the NOC.

This is our absolute favorite family vacation. We all don't ever want to leave and hope that this trip becomes a family tradition for us.

Peaceful retreat on the water

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay in this home on the lake. There are some other homes around, but it feels very secluded, super quiet and peaceful! The decks are great with some really impressive stargazing opportunities. I''m sure the summer there is a blast with the lake! The home is really well laid out for a family with kids or even two families. All the rooms are really spacious, there is plenty of relaxing space on each level and the kitchen has all the essentials. There are some puzzles, DVDs and VHS tapes (:-0!!) with some real classics in there. Grill is well- maintained and easy access to the kitchen. The fire pit area is really nice - sadly, we didn't get to put it to use due to some weather issues and other plans, but there was firewood provided. Overall, I would say the photos of the house don't do it justice! I would definitely recommend trying to take everything you might need on your way in and stay put if possible, as it would take quite a while to get to a grocery store, etc due to the very windy and steep roads. We did this and were really glad we didn't have to leave. No quick runs for beer here! Not a bad thing, just a thing to be aware of if you aren't too familiar with the area. We would definitely stay here again, no question. Thank you for opening your lovely home!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible house and view!! We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday here with family and it was the perfect place for unwinding and enjoying each other's company. The fire pit was great at night and we enjoyed floating on swimming noodles during the day. It was just right!

Amazing Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 had a wonderful relaxing time at the lake and it was well worth the 14 hour drive from Delaware. The house was absolutely beautiful and immaculate...the pictures did not do it justice! Never staying at a lake house before or renting online we had no idea what to expect and this was so much more than we ever expected. There was more than enough room for our large group. The kitchen was well stocked and the owners have definitely thought of everything that may be needed for kids and adults. The kids spent most of the day in the lake swimming or using the kayak and other inflatables. Nights were spent relaxing, playing board games or by the fire pit. Had a great time at NOC white water rafting.....wonderful people and guides. 1 week was not long enough..........hope to come back again and stay longer!

Great time at an awesome house

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this property and we could not have had a better experience. Great privacy, nicely decorated, and a 'not too hard' pathway to get down to the lake. Really enjoyed the privacy too. We have rented 5 other properties on Nantahala and this one is our favorite.
