Lake Santeetlah cottage description

Comfy, inviting 'tree house' cottage on beautiful Lake Santeetlah, Robbinsville, North Carolina. You'll live in our large SCREENED-IN PORCH, a must in this part of the state! Set with conversation area and dining table, you'll enjoy watching the humming birds flitting between the feeders on the adjacent deck. Enjoy the lake during the day and in the evenings relax on the deck, dock or in the screened porch and watch the sun set behind the mountains. Beautiful views of the Snowbird mountains and the Smokies right from your spacious deck with eating table and swing. Spread out in the cottage with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths all on one level for great family vacationing. Each bedroom has its own A/C unit. Completely stocked kitchen includes microwave and pantry. Separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer will also store your coolers and equipment out of sight. Large dock with canoe included. Secluded deep water (dive off the dock!) cove safe for the entire family. Off the road parking for 4 vehicles. Walk to the Marina for boat rentals or launch 1/2 mile away for free. Safe access to lake--easy supervision of children. Fire pit is amazing in the Fall, along with the wood stove. Sky lights keep the cottage bright and cheery, while surrounding trees make you feel as if you're in a tree house. Very private and low lake and neighbor traffic make this the ideal spot! Close to the Cherohala Skyway and Tail of the Dragon. Check calender for availability. Once you come you'll want to come back season after season! No pets and no smoking please. This is an allergen-free cottage.

                  Location

                  Lake Santeetlah is near the Nantahala River and rafting on the Cheoah. Near the Tail of the Dragon, and Cherahala Skyway.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1989

                  About the owner: We have been married for 40 years and have two grown daughters. We all love to water ski and this uncrowded lake is a great place to be! I teach middle school string music and my husband owns his own company designing and selling 3 dimensional displays. This is my summer haven for reading, cooling off and just plain relaxing! After 25 years I don't know what I would do without this place for amazing R and R!! We're delighted to share it with you and your loved ones!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Santeetlah:
                  Because 80% of the lake is national forest the lake sees very little boat traffic. We are close to the water, yet have a fabulous view. We love being in the trees where we can wear our jammies for breakfast and see all but not be seen! Our girls love swimming in the cove and I never worry about boats coming by because they turn out before they reach us at the end of the cove. We love to ski and swim.The water is so clear you won't need a shower. The water is a very comfortable temperature from June-October. A day of rest here will refresh you for a full week! Easy living at its best!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  This is one of only two listings that has a screened in porch. This is a MUST in the mountains, where rain can crop up suddenly. We're also at the end of a cove, so swimming in deep water here isd very safe. Cozy, comfortable, easy living with beautiful views all year round. The bathrooms have been recently tiled, with new flooring and plenty of towels. WALK TO THE MARINA AND RENTAL CRAFT. Free boat launching within one mile of cottage. Only 6 miles from Robbinsville and good grocery shopping and eating out. There is an amazing farm nearby where you can pick your own fruit and purchase delicious vegetables and beautiful flowers. Not far from the Nantahala River and extra special dining, Great hiking near by and resort shopping only 40 minutes away. Wonderful artisans in the area make exploring extra fun! Run on over to Bryson City and enjoy a run on the Smokey Mountain Railroad or a tube run on Deep Creek. Nantahala Inn has fabulous food as does the :Snowbird Mountain Lodge. Cherohala Skyway is very close as is the Tail of the Dragon.
