Property description

Lake Fontana is located in the far reaches of Western North Carolina in the majestic beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of the southern Appalachians.

This region is home to some of the highest and most remote mountains east of the Mississippi with elevations ranging from 1177 to 5560 feet. Fontana is nestled among hundreds of thousand of acres of wilderness full of stunning mountain landscapes and many memorable breathtaking views.

Our floating lakehouse has a breathtaking view of the lake and mountains. The sunset is AWESOME!

The house has 16 ft cathedral ceilings that are black walnut tongue and groove paneling. The loft is done in wormy red oak paneling. The bedrooms are done in all cypress tounge and grove paneling. The fully equipped kitchen is all hickory cabinets. A beautiful home for the perfect vacation.

We offer shuttle service to and from Cable Cove Wildlife Landing to the floating lakehouse. Upon arrival a 28 ft pontoon boat with hard top sundeck is available to use your entire vacation.

For those who love to fish, all tackle and fishing rods are available with guide. Our dear friend Bobby Milsaps is available upon request to guide you for the best fishing spots on Lake Fontana. Bobby was born and raised in Fontana and has guided for over 50 years of his life.

Lake Fontana is a wonderful place for the adventurer, sportsman, outdoors man or just to get away and relax. Experience of a lifetime!!! Gather up all your fishing buddies or family and get ready for lots of fun.

Two kayaks are available for the family to enjoy. Great hiking trails and much more.
