Lake Nantahala cabin description

On a ridgetop at 3600 feet elevation, Misty Laurel Chalet has a beautiful view of Lake Nantahala and the Smoky Mountains. It's a great place to escape the Low Country heat as it's 15-20 degrees cooler than at sea level in the South and it's often breezy. Imagine awakening to a gorgeous view of the lake and then taking a brisk walk thru a lovely forest with crisp, clean air.

Misty Laurel is spacious - 2400 square feet - with two living areas, both equipped with flat screen TVs, DirecTV HD satellite receivers & DVD players, in addition to three bedrooms, so the kids can entertain themselves downstairs while the adults enjoy themselves upstairs. There's also an extra dining table, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker downstairs, so that increases the privacy options. Take a look at the floorplan illustrations below.

For ADVENTURE SEEKERS: check out the Area Attractions on our supplemental website at www (dot) mistylaurel (dot) com for information about horseback riding, ziplining, whitewater rafting, biking, fishing and hiking.

We are again offering a FREE half-day pontoon boat rental at Lake's End Marina or a FREE half-day guided fishing trip with Dale Raxter of Nantahala Guide Service with rentals of at least a week in duration! For many of our previous guests, these excursions have been among the most memorable highlights of their visits to Misty Laurel. Lake Nantahala is spectacular and there's no better way to see it than from a boat. Dale is a life-long Nantahala resident and will regale you with his tales as a park ranger and tracker!


We now have an arrangement with the Nantahala Outdoor Center that entitles Misty Laurel Chalet guests to a 10% discount on the following NOC activities: rafting on any of the 7 rivers served by the NOC, Fontana Lake Kayak Tour, Recreational Kayak Rentals and the rafting portion of the Rapid Transit trip with the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. This offer is good for ALL our guests, regardless of the length of your stay! Misty Laurel Chalet is the only cabin at Lake Nantahala offering this NOC discount! Every Sat. nite during June, the NOC has live music (check out the NOC website at NOC dot COM).


In addition to lake and stream fishing, rafting and kayaking, hiking is an option, as well as gem mining, horseback riding and visiting nearby attractions, such as the Great Smoky Mtn. Natl. Park, Gatlinburg, the incredible Biltmore House (near Asheville), and shopping in Highlands. These make great day trips, along with visiting the museums and the casino in Cherokee. There are so many fun things to do, you'll need to come back several times to experience them all!

For after-hours entertainment, there are two HD LCD TVs (32-inch and 46-inch), both with HD DirecTV receivers, plus DVD players, and a VCR. Kids (and husbands!) can be exiled to the big-screen TV in the recreation room on the lower level while others enjoy quiet and privacy in the the main floor living area and the loft. We have high-speed DSL service, so you can stream videos from Netflix, etc., and we have a Chromecast device to facilitate this.

Here are some other 'Freebies':

FREE use of our 16' canoe (with trailer).

FREE UNLIMITED USE 3 Mbps DSL BROADBAND INTERNET is provided by Frontier and can be accessed by Ethernet or Wi-Fi (bring your smart phone, tablet, or laptop). You can easily stream movies, etc., from your favorite provider, such as HuluPlus, Netflix, Amazon, etc. Download the Chromecast app to your smartphone, tablet or laptop and you can easily stream whatever you'd like to watch to the TV!

CELL PHONE HOTSPOT! We recently added a Cell Phone Hotspot (for Verizon phones only) so you can now send and receive calls, do texting and if you desire, use your data plan.

FREE LONG DISTANCE CALLING THROUGHOUT THE U.S. (no need for a troublesome phone card!).

For lots more interior/exterior photos & panoramas, floorplan, rental agreement, maps, area information, recommended restaurants and our contact information, go to the Misty Laurel website at 'Links to More Information' below and for other guests' feedback and photos, etc., please check us out on Facebook and Twitter!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Pat and Jo are, respectively, a retired scientist (biologist) and educator (Spanish & French). Our puppy, Mitzi, a miniature poodle, loves being at Misty Laurel!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Nantahala:
                  We love to get away from the heat and humidity of Florida (Tallahassee) and Misty Laurel Chalet at Lake Nantahala is a great place to cool off and have fun!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  While it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we still need to be able to keep in touch. DSL internet access provides for this need, so we can still fulfill our obligations as consultants, etc.
