  • Fall in love with Lake Nantahala!

    "What a wonderful experience we had at Jerry and Lisa's beautiful home. We could not have chosen a better location and people to deal with. Lake Nantahala is beautiful, peaceful and pristine. The view from this home is one of the best, it's like opening heaven's gate when you walk out of the doors onto the deck, absolutely beautiful and take in the view for the first time. This house has everything, and I mean everything we needed! Quality items throughout the house for our use, a fully stocked kitchen with high end items, hot tub and beautiful dock with row boat. We rented a boat for our stay at the marina. Jerry and Lisa have water skis and tubing equipment there for a full day of fun! We roasted marshmallows and popped popcorn on the lower deck one evening over the fire in the outdoor fireplace. It was amazing! We would definitely book here again, our experience all around was the best!! Great for families with children or for a family get together. Everyone will be comfortable. Thanks again Jerry and Lisa for sharing your home with us!"

  • OHH EMM GEEE!

    "Oh my gosh! This house is BEAUTIFUL! The views are indescribable and overall heavenly. My parents had rented this house before but it was my 1st time and let me say hopefully it won't be the last. Just hanging out around the house is fantastic. Its close to a hiking trail, boat rental,and white water rafting as long as you don't get lost ,LOL Which we did BUT even getting lost was fun and beautiful! The porches are awesome. This trip was more than I ever imagined. If you are reading this trying to decide whether or not to rent it, let me just say, YOU should. You will not regret it. It is truly amazing. Trying to describe it and pictures do not reveal how breathtaking this place is in person."

  • BEST VACATION EVER!!!!

    "This was our second time renting this beautiful home on Lake Nantahala. I say "home" because it truly is a home and not just a "house". Beautiful views, warm and inviting decor, everything that we could possibly want or need was available. Tammie, the owner, was EXTREMELY helpful and a joy to rent from. We had a large group of family this trip so one family rented the house right next door. We had 2 families in our home and everyone had plenty of room. The house next door was a wonderful compliment to our home and the 12 cousins (ages 4 - 18) had a blast going between the homes. They played air hockey and ping pong in our home and then would go next door to play pool and jump in the hot tub. We all enjoyed the lake immensely! We rented a pontoon boat from David and loved getting out on the beautiful lake. The kids swam, tubed, fished, kayaked, hiked and went zip lining. The teenage boys even kayaked over to the small island nearby and camped out one night. It was wonderful to see the kids (especially the teenagers) become "unplugged" and get outside and enjoy the lake activities. Everyone (kids and adults) commented that this was the BEST VACATION EVER! We hope to return to Nantahala Lake and this home again many more times in the future."

  • Nice little gem in the mountains!!

    "Whenever booking online you always wonder about if the cabin will be what the pictures show, when we arrived at this cabin for our vacation we discovered a little gem of a cabin that is even nicer than in the pictures! Nice and clean, and very very peaceful! Even though the dam at the bottom was undergoing restoration, even the heavy equipment was not really heard and was completely unseen at the bottom of the drive across the road!! In the evenings, there was the occasional car you would hear heading up the main road but that was all. The drive and parking area are well maintained so that in all but very inclement weather it is accessible by most any vehicle. Here is where I must add one note (and this is not uncommon in mountain cabins) *** THIS IS NOT A MOTORCYCLE FRIENDLY DRIVEWAY!! UNLESS YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCED RIDER, AVOID THIS ONE!!*** While we were able to get up and down the drive on our bike, for inexperienced riders it would probably be more than they could handle, as it is a steep (albeit well maintained) gravel driveway. Other than that this is a very nice cabin that is close to Nantahala and some very nice fishing holes, including several within walking distance on Oak Creek!"
