Lake Nantahala house description

Beautiful 10 inch Ponderosa Pine log home located on Lake Nantahala, a lake with crystal clear water and gorgeous views. Three of the four bedrooms open to decks overlooking the lake. Lake Nantahala is one of the cleanest most pristine lakes in the USA and 85% of its shoreline is owned by the US National Forest Service. This means the lake is never crowded. Included in the rental are 2 kayaks.This is a great home for relaxing and enjoying the lake views. The log home features four bedrooms and a sleeping loft. Beds include 1 king, 2 queen, and four single beds. The lake views from the great room, deck, and three bedrooms are beautiful and peaceful. This is a great place to spend your vacation!
Nearby attractions include trout fishing or whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River, hiking on the Appalachian or Bartram Trails, or golf. We are about 90 minutes away from the Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casinos and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The cabin is about 40 minutes from the new Cherokee Casino opening in 2014 in Murphy, NC.
Lake Nantahala is a true diamond in the rough! At 3000 feet above sea level, the summers are cool and comfortable. You will probably want to use a blanket for sleeping, even in the summer. It is located between Andrews and Franklin, NC in Macon County. It is about a 2 hour drive from Atlanta, Asheville, Knoxville and Chattanooga. There are plenty of things to do in the area. The Nantahala River below Nantahala Dam is a world-famous delayed harvest trout stream. Fly fishers from all over the world come to the Nantahala. Kayaking, Canoeing and Rafting are available as well. The Nantahala River was the venue for kayaking in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Nantahala Lake is known for smallmouth bass, trout, walleye and it has even been stocked with salmon! The Appalachian Trail crosses Wayah Road about 8 miles from the house. The Bartram Trail is even closer. The rafting and kayaking put-in on the Nantahala River is about 15 miles from the cabin, with the takeout point being at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, downstream.
The house has lots of room for adults and kids to spread out and enjoy. There are three TVs with Atlanta stations, high speed internet and telephone. An added benefit is that your cell phone won't work here so you can finally get some rest and relaxation!
There is a boat dock and a gentle walk down to the dock from the house. The public ramp is less than a mile from the house. Pontoon boat rentals and gas are available at Lake's End Marina which also features a nice restaurant with some good down home cooking.
