Nice stay. great for dogs. Little dated. Will return.
"I went up to beautiful Lake Nantahala for four days with my husband, son, and his friend. I wish that I would have brought my two little dogs. It is the perfect place for dogs. There is little traffic as it is nestled away on an almost private road. The location is convenient as it is close to the Lake's-End marina and restaurant. It sleeps about 12, including two sofas. The bed and bath are upstairs. The kitchen and half bath is downstairs. There is one working fireplace downstairs, and they provide the wood. We loved this. There are no decks, but there are large picture windows and a patio. It would be great if there was some vista pruning, but one can still see the lake pretty well. The place is clean but has a slight mildew odor in the upstairs area. There is no dishwasher and no wifi. Cell service was also not existent for our carrier. The neighbors oversee the place and are wonderful. They answered our questions and made sure that we had everything that we needed. They also rent their pontoon boat for a great price. It is a bit dated, but they are refurbishing it soon. It is a great deal at 165.00 per day plus paying for gas. We took the boat out and toured the entire lake. The boat owners are flexible and knowledgeable about the area. The dock is also a bit dated, but the owners are getting a new one soon. Two canoes, a flat bottom boat, a grill, all cooking utensils, etc. are included. Also, bedding, bath and beach towels are provided. This place provided a nice unplugged weekend. It was only 17 miles to Franklin, NC, where we ate at the food truck and tested samples at the Loafing Hiker Brewery, and 15 or so miles to Anderson. There is hiking everywhere. We spent most of the time pontooning and kayaking on our own kayaks. The marina rents paddle boards, kayaks, etc.. We will return."

"We have stayed on lake Nantahala several times and this the best one. It is a beautiful house on a quiet cove on the lake. The design is perfect for family and friends to enjoy time together. The owners are great to work with. The house in extremely clean, kitchen is well stocked for cooking with excellent appliances, oversized refrigerator to hold all your food for your stay. The lake view is beautiful and the dock is great for the kids to fish, to dock your boat and to have fun on the water. Our large family of 12 was comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of our time at the lake this year."

"My wife and I stayed at Brye Haus this past weekend for a much needed getaway. The property is remote but quite beautiful and so relaxing. It rained ALL WEEKEND but that didn't bother us one bit. The house is well stocked and maintained. Just bring some food and you will have everything you need! Kitchen was very well stocked. Hot tub was great. Everything was perfect! HIGHLY RECOMMNENDED!!!"

"We love this place! But getting there was a joy in itself.
Driving down Waterfall Byway of North Carolina you can hike to a wonderful array of waterfalls along its winding route. In autumn, the beautiful foliage lined the road embracing you in vibrant colors as you curved around every corner. As you turn into Wayah Rd. from Franklin to Nantahala, you begin at the foothills of the Smokies. Farm houses and church sit quietly below the towering peaks around them welcoming your eyes as you drive by. You'll be deep in the beautiful Nantahala Mountain before you know it, and make sure you check out Wayah Bald along the way.
Upon arriving, the house was a welcoming site. Ample parking spaces for 4+ cars. The gorgeous view of the lake in autumn will take your breath away immediately when you open the front door. You'll be greeted with the warm evening light from the setting sun over the peaks across the lake. We didn't even unpack. We took off immediately to the back deck to take sight in. There is a canoe and paddle boat below at the dock waiting patient for you to take them to the water. There was always a delightful breeze gently blowing across the valley. It was a perfect autumn evening.
The house had everything we needed and more. You may think they don't have it until you find it in one of the many cabinets or closets there. There is a gas furnace there for heating and the fireplace is ready if you prefer that too. Plenty of clean towels and sheets if you need them. The washer and dryer are on the lower floor along with ping pong tables and couches for you hang out. Both floor have decks looking out to the lake.
The lake receded somewhat when we were there as it was autumn. The dock ran into ground as it was tied down. However, it was easy to get the canoe into the water. There may be at the most one two boat in the lake at the time when we paddle out. Most of the time it feels like the lake was all yours.
I will say no more. You'll love this place if you appreciate nature and its quietness. When I looked for a vacation rental, I though it was either the lake or the mountain. But my Fiancee wanted both and she got it! We stayed Oct 26th through the 29th."
