Recent Lake Nantahala reviews


    "Oh my gosh! This house is BEAUTIFUL! The views are indescribable and overall heavenly. My parents had rented this house before but it was my 1st time and let me say hopefully it won't be the last. Just hanging out around the house is fantastic. Its close to a hiking trail, boat rental,and white water rafting as long as you don't get lost ,LOL Which we did BUT even getting lost was fun and beautiful! The porches are awesome. This trip was more than I ever imagined. If you are reading this trying to decide whether or not to rent it, let me just say, YOU should. You will not regret it. It is truly amazing. Trying to describe it and pictures do not reveal how breathtaking this place is in person."

  • Rejuvinating Cabin experience with stellar lake view!

    "Last year we rented a different cabin from this owner and enjoyed our week at Nantahala Lake and returned this year for vacation. I've got quite the list of demands in a cabin because I'm not used to "roughing it" and don't plan to learn how to do that on vacation or it could not be defined as "vacation". This place has everything I need for a week in the woods: - Water. It's filtered well water that doesn't taste rusty! The hot water heater works well too and you can have a nice hot shower any time you like. - High quality king size bed. Night after night my wife and I got the best rest we've had in a looooong time. You'll agree. - Complete/Updated kitchen: All the big appliances are new and work well and are super clean. The kitchen has all the stuff you need too and it's not cheap cookware. There's even a mixer for making pancake and cake batter (I do a lot of cooking and baking on vacation because there's time to do it slowly for fun!) - Rocking Chairs: Two very comfy rocking chairs sit on the deck overlooking the lake and the chimnea (for deckside fires when it's cool at night). Smores anyone? - Hot tub: Nice tub that is properly maintained and cranks right up to 100+ degrees! - High speed internet/dish TV: We were able to stay connected with the world AND stream some movies to my iPad in the evenings. It was also good to be able to watch CNN now and then to make sure we weren't missing something monumental. - Friendly caretaker: As others have commented, the property caretaker (Dave) is a super nice guy and will help you if you have questions about the area or anything else for that matter. We spent our days driving around to enjoy the fall leaves, walking by the lake, fishing, and taking in the beauty of this area of our wonderful America. Our evenings were spent on the deck enjoying a fire in the chimnea and using our telescope to look at the zillions of stars in the sky (borrow one if you don't own one and bring it with you. It's the perfect spot for sky gazing!). I hesitate to write such an amazing review of this property for fear it will only serve to book it up solid when I want to go back, but I'll post it anyway. If you rent here, you will not be disappointed. It's a clean, well cared for cabin that has everything you need to enjoy some time away from the hustle bustle of your world."

  • Fabulous getaway, perfect location

    "We found this gem on 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!"

  • Misty Laurel

    "Our recent stay at Misty Laurel was wonderful. The owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our surprise getaway. We traveled around the beautiful area and left with some amazing photographs. The only thing I would change would be the length of our stay as I could have spent an entire month in this cabin. I can't wait to go back and I would highly recommend it to everyone."
