"Extended Family of 11. Lots of room. Did a week stay. Found time for fishing, tubing, Mining, Dollywood, White water rafting, waterfall hiking, card games and a small bond fire. If you are a flat lander like us, switch back roads can be a little challenging. If you are coming on a Harley from the north do the dragon (US 129). If your pulling a boat like I did. Oh boy. Yes you are in a log house in the woods and there are a couple bugs. We rented a pontoon for the tubing and a joy riding. Locals very nice. no cell, tv spotty which I thought as a plus."

"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!"

"We decided to rent this home. We had 5 adults and 5 children (age 2 to 11). The owners could not have treated us any better. We had told them we were going to do a lot of grilling and there was a brand new grill when we arrived. The loft we thought would have a futon in it but it also had two single beds, much to the delight of our three granddaughters. As on many lake homes there were many steps (40 from the garage to the house) and steps from the house to the dock, but the steps got easier each time we used them. The home was spacious and the views were spectacular! The lake was very clean and calm and not a large amount of boat traffic. Our daughter was able to practice wake boarding and the owners had two kayaks that we used the entire time! We rented a pontoon that was delivered to our dock. I rented this house because I needed the ladder at the end of the pier so that I could get out of the water. We enjoyed the ping pong table and the large deck. There is a bat house so we watched bats, ducks, squirrels and fish (you could see them from the pier). I feel so blessed that we ended up with this house because it was so peaceful and relaxing. If you have a hammock bring it! Some of the things we did, water rafting, zip lining, hiking, jet skiing, kayaking and tubing. There is a kid zone for zip lining (starts at age 4). Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation at your beautiful home. Hope we can come again next year."

"My wife and two college age adults stayed there for a week. Had our Kayaks to explore the lake, rented a boat at the marina. Had wonderful evening sunset dinners overlooking the beautiful lake. Weather was perfect (End of July) the lake temp. was also perfect for swimming (83F). A totally enjoyable experience. The accommodations are excellent. Great get away experience. Will do it again next year."
