Lake Nantahala cabin description

Three Bear Lodge is our dream, and we are excited to share it with you. The views from the over 1000sq/ft of covered porches and decks are the best the lake has to offer. Rustic Elegance is what we were going for, and the peace and serenity that you will enjoy is exceptional. The screened porch is attached to the lodge, and you can enjoy the view while taking in a roaring fire in the outdoor fireplace—call it your place to get away from it all. Everything was designed to make you feel at home, including the custom kitchen with commercial gas range and copper sink.

The cabin was finished on December 23, 2007—and is named after our ‘children’ - Ben (Teddy Bear), Zee (Honey Bear), and Yogi Bear...now you know where the name came from! Local craftsmen from the area made everything from the cabinets to the unique railings that don’t block the view. Their commitment to quality is seen throughout.

The cabin’s theme was based on the four seasons (winter, spring, summer, fall), which you can enjoy when your enter each bedroom. The Winter Bunkroom is our favorite, we are sure that your guests will think so too!

Three Bedrooms
Two & one half baths
Gourmet Kitchen
Outside fireplace in covered porch
Gas Fireplace in living room
Over 1,000 sq/ft of porches and decks (80% covered)
Loft overlooking lake
Backup Generator to make your stay worry free

Private dock

Lake Nantahala is one of the highest elevation lakes east of the Mississippi River. At an elevation of 3100’, the lake covers over 1600 acres, and with 80% of its 29 miles of shoreline being national forest, you are sure to enjoy nature at its best. Beautiful and un-crowded, Lake Nantahala is ideal for boating, fishing, skiing, and canoeing.

Your stay will certainly be one that is ‘out of the ordinary’. The Nantahala Gorge offers first class white water rafting and paddling, fly fishing, and a multitude of other activities.

What to do.....
Hiking—The Bartram Trail is located about 1 mile from the cabin—it hooks up with the Appalachian Trail at Wayah Bald
Biking—TSALI is the Southeast’s Mecca for mountain bikers
Fishing—Lake Nantahala is the only lake east of the Mississippi that has fresh water salmon, and let’s not forget we are ranked in the Top 50 for fly fishing in the country!
Boating—get out on the lake and enjoy the waterfalls and other surprises
Whitewater Rafting—something the whole family can enjoy together
Gem Mining
Horseback Riding
Great Smokey Mountain Railroad—make it a tradition
Biltmore House & Gardens is a short drive away in Asheville

It’s no wonder National Geographic’s Adventure Magazine & ABC’s Good Morning America awarded this area the “Number One Vacation with a Splash” in the U.S.
Whatever you are in the mood for, the area around Three Bear Lodge can accommodate. Your stay with us can include an array of family friendly activities—from the Bartram Trail located a mere mile away, to world class whitewater rafting and mountain biking—your ‘fun meter’ will be pegged!

I'm sure you can tell I am excited about our cabin, and I look forward to sharing it with you as 2013 marks the first time that we will be sharing our cabin with others.

Unwind a bit,

Darren

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: I've been coming up to this area for 14 years and simply fell in love with the mountains - it simply amazes me. Fly fishing, boating, whitewater rafting, hiking the AT, and enjoying friends…can there be anything better than that!

                  Why the Owner Chose Lake Nantahala:
                  This was a lifelong dream and I was fortunate to be able to find the property, design the cabin, and actually do some of the work myself. The tile work, hardwood floors, stone, and painting and staining were all done by me and my family.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  The 3 Bear just makes people happy - try it and see for yourself!
