PERSONAL STATEMENT & PHILOSOPHY:

THE REVIEWS OF OUR PREVIOUS GUESTS SUGGEST THAT THEY APPRECIATE THIS TOO. IN MY EXPERIENCE, YOU AND I WILL BOTH BENEFIT FROM THE FLEXIBILITY AND RELIABILITY OF MY HANDS-ON APPROACH. I AM ALMOST ALWAYS READILY AVAILABLE BY CELL PHONE, TEXT OR EMAIL AND I WILL DO ALL I CAN TO ASSIST YOU WITH WHATEVER YOUR NEEDS ARE PRIOR TO AND DURING YOUR STAY.

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. In fact, Robert Redford just filmed 'A Walk in the Woods' nearby, at Wayah Bald, based upon the book of the same name by Bill Bryson (to be released in 2015). The film's aerial videos were shot by the same video crew who did the videography for our Visit Misty Laurel YouTube video!

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.mistylaurel. 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!

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.

                      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.
