Lake Santeetlah house description

This lake house is located on Lake Santeetlah whose shoreline is 80% National Forest in the Nantahala National Forest. Compared to most other lakes there are fewer houses and boats on the lake. The lake is totally surrounded by Mountains as high as 5000 feet. Joyce Kilmer Forest is 9.5 miles from the lake house. Sit on the private dock with a great view of the lake.

The back of the living and kitchen area is all glass overlooking a great view of the lake. There are two separate living areas with separate TVs which makes it great for kids. It is five miles from the town of Robbinsville, North Carolina where you can get all supplies or eat at Restaurants. New and larger dock as of 2012

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      Why the Owner Chose Lake Santeetlah:
                      We used to have a house on Lake Burton in Northeast Georgia. Almost every parcel of land around the lake was built on and the lake was very crowded with boat traffic. When we discovered Lake Santeetlah and found out that the shoreline was 80% National Forest and would never be built on we decided that is where we wanted to be. The water level stays near full even during the worst of record drought years. Being surrounded by mountains is also a plus.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The lake view from the back of the house is very pleasant. The covered porch is a great place to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in the morning or just to hang out, come rain or shine.
