Apalachia Lake is located in the Appalachian Mountains of Cherokee County in western North Carolina. This scenic mountain lake is 9.8 miles long with 31 miles of shoreline and over 1,000 acres of water. Designated a Wilderness Waterway, most of Apalachia's shoreline is preserved by USFS Nantahala National Forest, keeping its breathtaking beauty unspoiled. Quiet secluded coves and inlets on Apalachia Lake provide excellent opportunities for swimming, boating, fishing or sightseeing. It is ideal for canoes and kayaks, but can easily accommodate a sport boat for water skiing. Game fish in Apalachia Lake include smallmouth and largemouth bass, white bass, walleye and trout. The area's beauty starts with the mountain laurel of spring and runs through the brilliant colors of the fall foliage.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2001

          About the owner: We are outdoor entusiasts who love to hike, bike, fish, hunt, canoe, boat, etc., especially in a remote wilderness setting where you can get away from it all and get back to nature.

          Why the Owner Chose Lake Apalachia:
          Apalachia Lake is a remote mountain lake, designated a wilderness waterway by the US Forest Service. One of the few TVA lakes that remains full through-out the seasons,. Apalachia is 9.8 miles long with 31 miles of shoreline; its cool, clear water is great for boating, skiing, fishing and swimming. This hidden lake boasts some of the most impressive scenery in the eastern United States.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
          The inconveniences of being 30 to 40 minutes away from town and on a lake without a marina or store, are far outwieighed by the felling of being in such a quiet, peaceful location.
