Lake Nantahala house description

Come enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind mountain escape. Located on Lake Nantahala, the highest lake east of the Mississippi, this house offers the perfect opportunity to retreat with family and friends. It is spacious enough to accommodate an extended family or a reunion with its two levels of outdoor decks, plenty of beds, large kitchen and dining room table, and a dock large enough to accomodate an 18-foot boat.

Late spring and summertime bring ample opportunities and fun for everyone! The clear-water lake provides great fishing, kayaking, boating and water skiing. Cycling is just a moment away when you can hit the breathtaking climbs of the Smoky mountains. The Appalachian trail passes within a few miles and great hiking is just out the front door. World class rafting and kayaking at the Nantahala Outdoor center are other great attractions. Up high in the mountains and completely shaded by trees, with high vaulted ceilings and fans, we hardly have a need for the window units on the top floor! A cool breeze off the lake (or a quick jump in) is usually all you need to stay cool.

Autumn is a visual treat! The house is nested among deciduous broad-leaf trees that produce vibrant and beautiful colors as the weather starts to cool. Daytime temperatures of 60-70 degrees make perfect hiking weather, while nighttime temperatures of 30-40 degrees produces a great campfire and s'more ambiance!

Winter at the lake is a time of relaxation and recuperation. Snowfall can range from a light dusting to 8 inches, which makes drinking a warm cup of joe or cocoa all the more toasty! The wood fireplace keeps the place cozy while you read a good book, work on a project, or just lounge around and watch a good movie. While the temperatures are a bit more nippy in the winter (20-40 degrees during the day, 10-30 degrees at night), it certainly doesn't keep you from bundling up and hiking or star-gazing!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Professional couple and family from Cincinnati who love their time in the mountains and wish to share with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Nantahala:
              We have travelled to Lake Nantahala for the last six years. Our family found it to be such a special place that we decided to invest in a property for a lifetime. We continue to use the house as a retreat and special family gathering place. From the moment we get 'up on the hill and on the lake' things are entirely different. Can't wait to be there.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              High in the mountains and secluded by the lake. Awaken every morning to sunrise on the hills and over the lake. Eagles and egrets are the closest neighbors. Fishing off the private dock or a swim across the quiet lake are just two of the many choices one can make for the day. Kayaking around the lake provides ample opportunity to explore the beauty of the Nantahala forest range. Cycling, hiking and trout fishing are all premier class. The private dock is perfect to tie up a ski boat for personal use.
