FORGE LAKE LODGE HIGHLIGHTS:

• 4 fireplaces, 2 bars
• 7 flat screen TVs with DVD players
• Professional kitchen
• 4 terraces
• Professional gas grill

Located in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina, on the edge of the Nantahala National Forest, Forge Lake Lodge is nearly 10,000 square feet of rustic luxury. From hiking to star-gazing on the terrace or white-water rafting, this enormous North Carolina luxury vacation rental has something for everyone. With plenty of space for friends and family, enjoy the awesome beauty of mother nature with exquisite creature comforts.

Forge Lake Lodge boasts a professional kitchen with modern appliances, including an ice-maker and wine cooler. It is beautifully appointed with hand carved, 19th century cabinetry and an island bar that seats eight. Eat under the vaulted log ceiling of the dining room or walk-out to one of the lodge’s four terraces and make dinner on the professional gas grill. The great room has panoramic views of the mountain landscape, a grand stone fireplace, and a bar. There is never a dull moment in the entertainment room with another full bar and fireplace, 50” LCD high-definition TV, XBox, game table, surround sound, and even a jukebox. The library has 200 titles, a selection of board games and puzzles, and a business center with high-speed internet, printer, fax and phone.

Situated on Lake Nantahala, near Topton, North Carolina, this incredible luxury vacation rental is ideally located for outdoor recreation. Mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, and swimming are just a few of the adventures awaiting your friends and family at Forge Lake Lodge. Wake to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and wander onto the patio for a stretch in the clear morning air. After breakfast, test your mettle in a white water raft on the famous Nantahala Falls, or hike the two-mile loop above the Whiteside Cliffs. Take a trip to Cherokee, North Carolina to shop for antiques or Native American goods. Head home in the evening for a glass of wine. Have a big dinner -- you’ve earned it, and end the night with a movie by the fireplace.
