Lake Santeetlah cottage description

This cottage is on one of the most pristine lakes in the United States with 90% of it's shoreline in national forestland. Unlike many other southern lakes, the Lake Santeetlah water level is maintained at high levels year round. On this 8 mile lake there is an abundance of spectacular scenic views, rope swings to get your heart pumping fast, short and tall rocks and cliffs to jump off of & quiet coves to explore with few if any boats or Jet skis in sight on most days.
(No houseboats or speedboats permitted on lake)

This house has 3 small bedrooms and sleeps eight.
The large 600 square foot screened-in sleeping porch includes a beautiful natural gas fireplace with glass sides for chilly evenings or for watching like a campfire. You will love relaxing on the screened in porch with the dock in sight. Or whipping up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen.

This cottage is in a quiet neighborhood on a quiet lake. If you like loud music and screaming and yelling late at night, this is not the place for you.

~ This property has 40 feet of lakefront. The dock is 8' x 16'. You will love swimming in the crystal clear water of Lake Santeetlah. Our cove faces west so we watch a wide, wondrous sunset. In the daytime, part of the dock is in the shade and part in the sun. You can dive and play in the water and dry off fast in the sun while others can sit in the shade watching, cheering on, reading etc... We had not considered these attributes (a shady spot on the water) when looking for a lake house but are thankful they are this way. This beautiful mountain lake home is about 1.5 hours from Asheville, 2 hours from Knoxville & about 3 from Atlanta.
Thank you for your interest!

              Location

              The Tail of the Dragon is a popular motorcycle route going north of the lake to Tennessee. The Appalachian Trail runs through Robbinsville from Georgia to Maine. Several lakes are in the area as well as hiking and rafting areas. The Joyce Kilmer forest is on the north end of the lake.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We are a happy family living in Asheville, N.C. Our oldest son is in college now so we're finding there are many weeks over the summer we are not be able to use our great lakehouse and so we are making it available to others. It thrills us for you to enjoy our small slice of perfection!

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Santeetlah:
              We looked for a quiet lakefront property not too far from Asheville with pristine clean, high water levels year round. A beautiful lake!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This is a no smoking property and most well behaved pets are allowed. Sorry, no cats. It is hard to imagine a lake with no people. This is about as uncrowded as you can get on a pristine lake in the U.S. The house is bright yet shaded.
