"Lakeside Lodge was great. The property is huge and has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. A few updated pictures would be beneficial to this listing- the dock and hot tub are not as picture BUT the game room (pool, foosball, and theater room) were much bigger than we expected!
The two master suites and the theater area (with a huge selection of movies!) were awesome extras. Our group (7 adults) enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit area. Note: there is no gazebo bar or covering on the hot tub as pictured in this listing, it is just the hot tub. The house was clean and had a well-stocked (pots, pans, tupperware, etc.) kitchen. Plenty of extra blankets, pillows, etc. There are several wonderful deck spaces- we ate outside most nights- and the propane grill was in good shape.
The views are simply stunning of Lake Nantahala but there are lots of stairs! Once you go down to the dock/lake area you won't want to have make a trip up them for quite a while. Also (as of Sept 2015), the dock is not as pictured in this listing. It is at quite a slant and is not particularly comfortable for laying or lounging on. You would not be able to sit in chairs on it. There is a small dirt/sand beach you could sit on. Our group attributed some of this to a low lake level but not all of it, the dock could certainly use some work.
You are off the grid. You will lose cell service 15-20 minutes before getting to the house (so don't plan on using a hotspot to get internet) and the internet available was dial up which obviously won't work with tablets or phones. This was well communicated by the owners prior to arrival but it really is off the grid!
Donna was very easy to work with and provided all of the information for our weekend in a timely manner and quickly answered questions, etc. Our group would recommend Lakeside Lodge and we hope to return again!"

"From the moment we arrived, it was as though every worry vanished. The surroundings were breath taking and the house was perfect!
Our family had an amazing time at Nantahala Lake, and found this house to be the perfect retreat.
“Couldn't ask for better!! 100% recommended!”"

"Lake Nantahala is incredible. Uncrowed and beautiful. We could see bottom in over 25 foot of water. The home was great it was very clean and as advertised. We had 14 in our group.
The pontoon is fun but I suggest you rent the Jet Skis if you have kids. We rented both jet skis and had a blast. The pontoon is a little slow for pulling tubes. The owners were easy to work with. Deposit was returned in about a week. No issues.
We recommend this home and place to anyone looking for fun."

"My family and I decided on a North Carolina vacation on a whim, and we were very appreciative of Pam's help in planning our trip. When we arrived at Mountainview House we were very excited. The house is beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable, and has amazing views. We stopped at the grocery store on our way into town, and cooked every night in the well stocked kitchen. After a day of exploring, we would unwind on the porch, watch the sunset, and enjoy the scenery and the excitement of the hummingbirds. Pam was extremely helpful in planning our trip. She recommended various adventures for our family and all were perfect for our young daughters. This trip was one of the best we have ever taken---we have recommended Mountainview House to our friends and plan to return ourselves. Do not hesitate in booking this gorgeous house--it was conveniently located close to NOC, Joyce Kilmer, Nantahala Lake, gem mines, hiking trails."
