  • Exceeded Expectations! Very Memorable Place and Vacation!

    "My brother had invited my boyfriend and I to vacation with him and his 2 children at this lovely place in NC. He showed us this site with the pictures and we immediately said "YES"! The house, the lake, the mountain views and the whole area was absolutely beautiful! Pictures cannot even do it justice. There is plenty to do in the area and we had different and fun plans each day. There are alot of waterfalls in the area and we did discover the Bartram trail while exploring the gravel road from the house. We also went white water rafting on the Nantahala River, which is close by and was great fun! The hot tub was wonderful to come back to every night and relax in, and breakfasts and dinners on the deck, with those mountain views is fondly and forever etched in my mind. The gravel road to get to the house WAS steep and tricky. When I read the other reviews, I figured they were exaggerating. It only added to the remoteness of privacy of this home and vacation. We hope to come back! Thanks for letting us stay in your very comfortable, and beautiful home!"

  • Where the stars shine brighter!

    "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."

  • 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."
