Lake Nantahala cottage description

Right on the lake with a large lawn for bon fires and horshoes. LOCATION,LOCATION,LOCATION!!! and now with WI/FI! One knows the importance of location when buying real estate. The same holds true when looking for a rental property. This property is unique compared to others on the lake(most are VERY high with many steps down to the water) in that it's located at the water's edge with very little elevation change (10ft.)between the house and the water. This can be an important feature for some older adults and young children. Fishing and swimming from your own private dock will surely be one of the most memorable highlights for the kids. You might choose to rent our pontoon boat for the duration of your stay or from the neighboring boat rental company. If you have your own boat, launch at the nearby boat ramp and tie it up a mere 100 feet from the house. The large, flat(uncommon in the mountains) park-like lawn lends itself to many activities such as playing a game of horseshoes, a friendly game of football,or relaxing in the hammock underneath one of the many large trees.

Come inside and 'decompress' amid the antiques and leather furniture, a casual blend of eclectic and rustic. There's no danger of feeling as if you've walked into a stale, cookie-cutter resort rental condo, as photos of family and past visitors adorn the walls and impart a welcome feeling of visiting with old friends and being a part of the family.

Views of the lake and distant mountains are wonderful from the two outside decks, where you can enjoy your meals outdoors or take a leisurely soak in the hot-tub. Walk 50 yards to a quaint mountain lakefront cafe' where you can enjoy an early breakfast and meet some of the locals, or dine informally in the evening.

Cottage is easily accessible and close to paved road. No need for four-wheel-drive. Quiet, comfortable lake living at it's best.
