"We had 11 family members (5 boys ages 11-15) and Stoney Brook was the most perfect house for our big family vacation. The lake was clear and not too cold (for these FL toes) and we had the cove all to ourselves. We brought a boat (highly recommended) for tubing, fishing and exploring but all of us enjoyed the kayak as well. The boys loved the rope swing and jumping off the "cliffs" by the damn. The views are spectacular and the house has everything you could want. We especially enjoyed the screened in deck/fireplace area for reading in the morning and really all day enjoyment. We couldn't believe it but there wasn't one mosquito all week! The house is set up perfectly for multiple families with lots of room (and separation) for kids and adults. While the walk down to the lake is a bit steep, we felt it was much easier than hundreds of steps (like other rentals we had considered). I really can't imagine a better location or home. The whitewater rafting at NOC was a highlight of our week with a guide ("Lee") that made it a most memorable experience. I recommend the 9:00 run as it is beautiful, peaceful time before the river fills with rafts. In all honesty, the steep driveway was challenging but Roy warned us (and all of them are like this around the lake). We had a 4 wheel drive vehicle which was fine but there was no way my in-laws Kia Sorrento could make it so we had to park it off site. (the steepness is no exaggeration.) Finally, Roy was wonderful to deal with; very helpful at every turn, answered my many questions and was prompt with paperwork, etc. He even mailed back a forgotten item which I greatly appreciated. This is a gorgeous property built on a slice of Heaven and we have memories for a lifetime. Thank you!!"

"First off I just want to say that the pictures do not do this place justice. It is a beautiful cabin inside and out! My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights and 4 amazing days here to celebrate our 7th anniversary and we had the best time!! Alex truly is a wonderful host. He met us at the cabin the night we arrived to make sure we knew how to use the hot tub and show us how things worked within the cabin. The appliances in the kitchen really are top notch! The décor through out the cabin is beautiful, and the bed is really comfortable. The views looking out on the lake from the porch are breathtaking. The wrap-around porch is wonderful! It rained a good bit while we were there but that didn't bother us one single bit we made great use of the hot tub and hammock. The day it didn't rain we took the little hike down to the lake and used the canoe. We had so much fun! This is a place we will certainly come back to. We really can't say enough good things about this cabin. It was PERFECT! We had the best romantic weekend we could have asked for. Thank you so much Alex for sharing this little piece to heaven. We can't wait to plan our next trip!!"

"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."

"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!"
