Recent Lake Nantahala reviews

  • 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."

  • Memorable Experience

    "I've rented placed various times and I have to say that this has the best experience. Pat, the owner, was very helpful, accommodating and pleasant to work with during my stay. As a matter of fact, he was in Italy when I arrived at Misty Laurel and he called me to make sure that everything was okay. His directions to the the place were very helpful especially since I rely a lot on Google maps. I traveled with my son and my Golden retriever and the house was just spectacular. It was everything I expected and more. I've been to places where the owner has signs and notes posted on every room. This was not the case. I felt right at home and spent five glorious days, enjoying Misty Laurel. The view from the house was spectacular, and I woke up every morning looking at the mountains and the lake. The view from the top floor bedroom allowed you to look over from bed and see it (just as in the pictures). I enjoyed coffee and wine on the balcony and took in the smells and the sounds of nature. My seventeen year old son enjoyed cable and especially Wifi. I liked that the deck would close completely, so I felt comfortable, having my dog outside. I cooked all our meals and the house had everything I needed to prepare them. We used Pat's suggestions to visit various places in the area, including Cullajasa Falls and Wayah Bald. We also visited various waterfalls in Franklin/Highlands. I hope to go back to Misty Laurel one day, in the summer so we can enjoy the lake and the river activities. Thank you, Pat for sharing your home with us."

  • Fabulous getaway, perfect location

    "We found this gem on vrbo.com and it lived up to every expectation and more! 2 families of 4 fit comfortably in this home with room to spare. The walk from the house to the lake is nicely graded and very comfortable to walk. The boat is fantastic! We had a great time taking it out and tooling around the lake. The road leading up to the home is very reasonable and easy to navigate (some roads in the area are extremely graded and this one, thankfully, was not.) Owners were great to work with. We love the area and loved the house!"

  • FANTASTIC - EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED!

    "Don't hesitate in choosing this home for your vacation! We came over for 9 nights from the UK and having rented in the USA via VRBO/homeaway for the last 10+ years, I can wholeheartedly say that this house is exactly as advertised, in fact it's better! The view once you walk through the front door is outstanding and the dock area too is just idyllic. We only had a regular hire car, not 4wd and it was fine. It is pretty remote but there is a big grocery shop in Andrews, as well as a good coffee store. We rafted and zipped at the Nantahala outdoor centre, again not too far away. The lake itself was quiet and so clear and warm for swimming. The kayaks and canoe were perfect for heading over to the little island with the rope swing - perfect for our teenage sons! As was the games room with pool table - plenty of room for us all to spread out. The hummingbirds that visited the feeder on the deck were also a real treat. Go ahead - you won't be disappointed."
