Recent Lake Nantahala reviews

  • Exactly what we were looking for!

    "My husband has hiked the AT trail and loves the area around Lake Nantahala. He wanted me to experience it also. We decided to look for a cabin on the lake. This was perfect. The cabin has pretty much everything that you would need. We would sight see during the day and then come back to the cabin to make dinner, canoe and then watch the NCAA basketball tournament. Every morning we would sit on the deck, drink our coffee and appreciate the absence of noise. The bed was comfortable. The shower had plenty of hot water. The cabin is in pristine condition. The cabin is off the beaten path but Cherise's directions are excellent. I wouldn't recommend trying to get the cabin after dark due to the narrow mountain road. Some may feel otherwise. Cherise called a couple of times to make sure we got in ok and everything was fine with the cabin. We will certainly try to rent Cherise's cabin when we're back in the area. This was our first experience with VRBO and it was a totally smooth experience. Thanks Cherise!!! We had a terrific vacation!"

  • INCREDIBLE CABIN !!!

    "Words cannot adequately describe this cabin! I was fortunate enough to be able to stay there with my girlfriend for a little three day escape from March 20th -March 23rd. I could not have dreamed that every aspect of our stay would be so completely perfect. The cabin is absolutely wonderful and is extremely clean, modern, well-equipped, spacious and inviting. The lay-out is great and was obviously designed with a lot of thought as there is parking space beside each entry for unloading when arriving and loading when leaving. The gas logs provide a cozy atmosphere and the Bose surround sound makes listening to music or watching DVDs so much better! It was great to relax around the fire pit, but our absolute favorite component was the hot tub! Starting the day with a cup of coffee and ending it in the evening with a glass of wine in those whirling jets...overlooking the lake down below and the mountains all around us gave a new definition to the idea of relaxation. To watch the sun rise...the day begin...or the night envelope the world around you is so soothing. Be sure to have plenty of gas before you head up the mountain! It takes a while to reach the cabin but is well-worth the climb. I am already planning a return visit! This was one of the best trips I have ever had!"

  • 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."

  • Nice Little Escape

    "Cabin was great, inside and out. The two porches are great to relax on and provide an amazing view. There are a lot of great places nearby (~20 min), predominantly the NOC which provides rafting opportunities as well as a full bar (as it is a 'resort') as the rest of the small city is 'dry', so be sure to buy beer/alcohol on the way in. Another place you can sneak by getting a drink is at PBR (Pizza by the River) which is on the way to the NOC, just a tip in the tip jar and they'll give you a beer. Only thing that can be improved to the cabin would be a more direct path to the fire pit."
