Recent Lake Nantahala property reviews

  • Nice and comfortable stay away from home. Cabin in the woods away from bustling traffic.

    "The property is clean and well-maintained. We stayed for a weekend for 3 nights and we completely enjoyed our stay. The lake is in close proximity and can be viewed right from the cabin. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend. We had an outing to Nantahala river rafting which would take 30 mins by car."

  • Gorgeous view, gorgeous home, totally relaxing!

    "Beautiful home! Super clean! Gorgeous furnishings! We had a fabulous time. This area of North Carolina is so relaxing. The view of the lake was stunning. My children ages 6 to 16 had a great time canoeing, kayaking, and playing in the lake. Everything needed to make our stay enjoyable was inside the house: kitchen supplies, games, videos, and more. Great family vacation."

  • Awesome Mountain Lake Getaway

    "Just as the other reviewers state: Long winding drive, no cell phone service (we actually could get one bar signal at the dock), lots of steps to lake - but it was/is exactly as described: A wonderfully relaxing retreat! Plenty of room for the three adults and five kids. Highly recommend this house to un-plug, unwind, and relax."

  • The Lap of Luxury in the Back of Beyond

    "My family and I were pleased with the week we spent at the Lake House. First off, yes, the place does look exactly like the photos. The home is clean, comfortable and has a ton of space on three levels. The main living area has comfy leather seating, a nice TV and plenty of space to relax. The house has several outdoor living areas. The front porch has a great view of Nantahala Lake. The screened-in side porch has a picnic table and hot tub. There is also an upper deck with an even better view of the lake. The lake area pictured is a bit of a walk from the cabin. We walked to it initially, but drove there after that, as it was quite a trudge back uphill to the cabin. The water in the lake is crystal clear, and the area around the dock was scenic, clean and serene. This is a great swimming lake, and we spent several peaceful hours lolling around in the water near the dock. The owners were great to deal with. The hot tub was out of whack when we arrived, but that was promptly remedied. The rest of the property was in top notch shape. The gravel road into the cabin is steep. It was daunting at first, but by the end of the week we were old pros at navigating the grades and turns. Activities we enjoyed on our stay: hiking the Appalachian Trail to Wesser Bald and Siler Bald, tubing down Deep Creek at Bryson City, and hanging around the lake. There's not much to do on a rainy day, though, so be prepared to entertain yourself. I brought a cyclocross bike and had a great time pedaling down the Old River Road, Winding Stairs Road, Tuni Gap, etc. Getting out of the development to the main road was half the fun! We've stayed in many places in the Nantahala Lake and Bryson City area over the years and this was our favorite."
