  • Chillin' at Lake Nantahala

    "Grace Cottage was a perfect place to unwind, relax, get in a few hikes and generally escape from everyday pressures. The accommodations were very adequate and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The bed in the master BR was firm and comfortable for even a big guy, which was a plus. The deck and dock were two good places to hang out and watch nature do her thing morning and afternoon. The chickadees made short work of the bird feeder contents, which we refilled daily. There was little activity on the lake except fishermen and a few late afternoon boaters, which made for good kayaking. There was the canoe, which we didn't use much. A second kayak would be a definite plus, but we made good use of the one at the cottage. We also hiked several parts of the AT, including Wasser Bald and Wayah Bald. Both are within a 30 minute drive and offer great views from the summit. The hike to Huckleberry Knob on the Cherohala Skyway was also a real treat, about an hour's drive away. We didn't float the whitewater at Nantahala George, but will do that next trip that we hope to make next summer. Grace Cottage made a great home base for all our outdoor adventures. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!"

  • Amazing Lake House!

    "We were looking for a house to rent on direct lake front to enjoy time with our family and this house was perfect! The house is absolutely amazing! It's beautifully decorated throughout and has wonderful amenities. It has a pool table and ping pong table, which my kids thoroughly enjoyed, and has a great space in the downstairs area for watching TV, etc. Very kid friendly. The lake is pristine, with crystal clear water and beautiful views. The house is situated on a nice cove on the lake, so you can safely swim and kayak right off the dock without having to worry about a lot of boat traffic. The area is fairly secluded so, even though we were there at peak time in the summer, the lake never felt crowded. We were able to tour the lake on the pontoon boat and take in the breathtaking views of the mountains. It was spectacular! This is truly a second home for the owners and it is clear they take a lot pride in their home and in keeping it immaculate. The owners were great in giving us directions, suggestions and advice. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend this home."

  • A long needed vacation!!

    "We are a military family and constantly on the go. My husband just recently came home from a long deployment and this cabin retreat is what we really needed. The peace and quiet was a dream come true. The views were beautiful and the amenities were great. We had family come from all different states and not one time did we hear anyone say they didn't have room. The cabin is fully loaded with dishes, knives, pots, pans, washer, dryer and etc. My family loved the Bon fire and s'more night along with the hot tub on the chilly nights. One thing I really did like is you are truly cut off (cell phone) wise from everyone. Their is internet but it is a little slow, but we didn't mind. All in all our experience was one we will always remember and cherish. We are hoping to rent again during the summer this time :)"
