"The house was perfect for myself, my husband, the two 14 year old boys, our 17 year old and our boxer dog. It had everything you could need at a lake- except cell service. The house has a great lay-out and was just what we needed. We spent tons of time in the kayaks fishing and enjoyed the hammock. The gated community is a great place for long walks and peace and quiet. We felt safe and relaxed while there. It is close to a nice little cafe that has cell service and yummy food. It was easy to go whitewater rafting on the Nantahala river as the launch site was only 20 minutes away. It was absolutely wonderful.
The reason that I rated this property as good and not excellent is that it doesn't have cell service which makes it difficult to reach family members if they go somewhere without you. Be sure to purchase a long distance card before you get there. I also would not recommend stopping in Andrews for anything. Go on to Murphy. While we were in Andrews, we saw a woman get hit by her boyfriend and the locals ignored it like it was normal, several drug deals, and cars doing donuts in the local grocery store parking lot- all before 9 pm."

"The name of this cabin was "Hooked by the View", and you couldn't come up with a more accurate name. The house is set on a sparsely populated (read quiet and not busy) lake, nestled into the mountains of western North Carolina. We felt like we had the lake almost entirely to ourselves, even on the weekends. Great house that is well supplied with the things you need for an entertaining time. Great dock with kayaks and canoes, and is set in a small cove that is perfect for swimming. We rented a boat for the week from a local marina, and tied the boat up right at the house. Had a fantastic time tubing, exploring the lake, and fishing. The lake is beautiful, but remote. Make sure you check your travel times if there are area attractions that you want to visit. Highly recommended."

"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."

"Cabin was great, inside and out. The two porches are great to relax on and provide an amazing view. There are a lot of great places nearby (~20 min), predominantly the NOC which provides rafting opportunities as well as a full bar (as it is a 'resort') as the rest of the small city is 'dry', so be sure to buy beer/alcohol on the way in. Another place you can sneak by getting a drink is at PBR (Pizza by the River) which is on the way to the NOC, just a tip in the tip jar and they'll give you a beer.
Only thing that can be improved to the cabin would be a more direct path to the fire pit."
