"We have stayed on lake Nantahala several times and this the best one. It is a beautiful house on a quiet cove on the lake. The design is perfect for family and friends to enjoy time together. The owners are great to work with. The house in extremely clean, kitchen is well stocked for cooking with excellent appliances, oversized refrigerator to hold all your food for your stay. The lake view is beautiful and the dock is great for the kids to fish, to dock your boat and to have fun on the water. Our large family of 12 was comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of our time at the lake this year."

"The house was perfect for myself, my husband, the two 14 year old boys, our 17 year old and our boxer dog. It had everything you could need at a lake- except cell service. The house has a great lay-out and was just what we needed. We spent tons of time in the kayaks fishing and enjoyed the hammock. The gated community is a great place for long walks and peace and quiet. We felt safe and relaxed while there. It is close to a nice little cafe that has cell service and yummy food. It was easy to go whitewater rafting on the Nantahala river as the launch site was only 20 minutes away. It was absolutely wonderful.
The reason that I rated this property as good and not excellent is that it doesn't have cell service which makes it difficult to reach family members if they go somewhere without you. Be sure to purchase a long distance card before you get there. I also would not recommend stopping in Andrews for anything. Go on to Murphy. While we were in Andrews, we saw a woman get hit by her boyfriend and the locals ignored it like it was normal, several drug deals, and cars doing donuts in the local grocery store parking lot- all before 9 pm."

"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!"
