  • Beautiful Place

    "The cabin was beautiful. The owner decorated with Christmas decorations which made it feel extra cozy. The cabin is not near any others, which was very nice. The only bad part was the fridge stopped working one day so we had to live out of coolers for a little while. It did eventually start working again otherwise it would have been a huge inconvenience. Also, the hot tub did not work at all! In the winter there is not as much to do as in the summer so we were so disappointed! The owner reimbursed us for just the hot tub fee of $50.00. We did not let this ruin our time though. We hiked every day and found beautiful waterfalls. The guys went fishing on the river nearby and the ladies went into the little town to look around the shops. A lot of places close for the winter. Overall, we had a great time, just wished we could have soaked in that hot tub after our long drive, and hikes."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Chillin' at Lake Nantahala

    "Grace Cottage was a perfect place to unwind, relax, get in a few hikes and generally escape from everyday pressures. The accommodations were very adequate and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking. The bed in the master BR was firm and comfortable for even a big guy, which was a plus. The deck and dock were two good places to hang out and watch nature do her thing morning and afternoon. The chickadees made short work of the bird feeder contents, which we refilled daily. There was little activity on the lake except fishermen and a few late afternoon boaters, which made for good kayaking. There was the canoe, which we didn't use much. A second kayak would be a definite plus, but we made good use of the one at the cottage. We also hiked several parts of the AT, including Wasser Bald and Wayah Bald. Both are within a 30 minute drive and offer great views from the summit. The hike to Huckleberry Knob on the Cherohala Skyway was also a real treat, about an hour's drive away. We didn't float the whitewater at Nantahala George, but will do that next trip that we hope to make next summer. Grace Cottage made a great home base for all our outdoor adventures. Thanks for sharing your cabin with us!"
