  • Mountain Paradise

    "Beautiful mountain cabin on Lake Nantahala! Spectacular views of the lake and a fantastic home make this a true mountain paradise! The house had everything you could possibly ask for. It was very cozy, clean, well maintained, and beautifully decorated! Our family enjoyed boating on the lake, swimming, climbing the waterfall and discovering the rope swing! The dock was close to the house with minimal stairs to climb as compared to other houses on the lake. A fantastic time was had by all! We were a little nervous about booking through VRBO for the 1st time but Dwight, the owner, quickly made us feel comfortable. He is very accommodating and a pleasure to work with, calling the day we arrived to make sure we arrived safely and to see if we needed anything. We will definitely recommend this beautiful home to our friends looking for a relaxing getaway and hope to return again in the future."

  • Sweet Spot

    "The sound of the stream, the green of the woods were better than a spa. The cabin is very clean, with a lot of care to keep things dry in this deep forest. Anyone who wants serenity, privacy and simplicity will love this place. The beds are comfortable and there are games and DVDs for the whole (small) family. I would have liked better lighting and an open bedroom window (it had a window air conditioning unit which wasn't needed and made the room feel stuffy while it was gorgeously cool outside)."

  • Wonderful time at Lake Nantahala

    "We had a wonderful time at this cozy cabin in the woods. We went expecting to see beautiful fall colors....and we did, for one day. It snowed our first night there and it was a winter wonderland the next day. Just enough snow to be beautiful, and not impede our traveling around. Thank you for your care of this delightful cabin and at such a reasonable rate. We are thinking it would be a nice retreat this summer so we can get out on the lake."

  • Good getaway for the stout of heart

    "The Iron Duckling is a great cabin get away. Plenty of room for 6 people although 9 may feel cramped. The property is clean and very well appointed. Kitchen appliances and utensils are all high end. Phil is a friendly and courteous owner with whom I dealt to make arrangements. As the posting implies, the boat is a very special feature of the property. The lake is wonderful and you really need a boat to enjoy it. However, you will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. We had a front wheel drive minivan and had difficulty getting to the property. Furthermore, the boat is quite the hike to and from the cabin. It's about a 15 minute hike down the mountain to the boat but, depending on your ability, it can be a strenuous 30+ minute hike back up. Older, very young, or impaired guests will have a great deal of difficulty. The property is remarkably private and quiet. There is a cabin that could be considered 'next door' that could comprimise privacy when occupied but it does not appear to be a rental and was thankfully empty during our stay. Although there are 3 bedrooms plus a loft with convertable sofas, one bedroom is smallish with a bed to match. I would think it would be suitable for a single adult in most cases. The loft could accommodate 3 kids if they get along very well. However, there is only common seating for a few people. The living room sits 4 people comfortably with chairs on the front porch that could seat 4 people in nice weather. If you bring a very full family, be prepared to compete for a comfy perch. Although the number of flying insects is suspiciously low, there is no screened area oustide so the few mosquitos there are do manage to find you if you don't have some other defense (repellant, candles, etc.) The property is rather remote. If boating isn't your thing (and you don't have a 4 wheel drive vehicle) your goal can only be solitude. I don't mean that to be a criticism. Getting away from it all can be difficult to accomplish. If you are looking to go shopping for local crafts, enjoying some cultural events, or evening taking in a movie to break up the stillness, be prepared to commute to and from the Iron Duckling. That said, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property with these things in mind."
