  • Nice Interior!

    "Nice new large home. Interior was very well done! Great home for fishing in a boat on the lake or from their private pier. We rented a pontoon boat from Jim (aka "The Mayor")(Neighbor) & he also helped us catch some nice fish. Kids had fun in the game room. Great selection of DVD movies, which was nice since there is no Wifi & cell phone reception is spotty at best. Owner was very easy to work with. Returned Security Deposit immediately. Wish we would have known that it is a dry county. So pick-up wine, beer, etc. prior to arrival if so desired. Nice grocery store within 10 minutes. Not too many restaurant choices. There is a McDonalds, Subway etc. The Mexican restaurant, can't remember the name, but there is only one, is actually very good & so is Lynn's Place - these are about your only two choices. The self-proclaimed #1 restaurant in-town "Carolina Kitchen" is closed & no one is certain if it will re-open. Everyone in town was very nice - great people! There was five of us & unless we were doing something wrong we really had to spread out the showers or no one had hot water. The property is for sale & we had some really nice bikers ring the doorbell trying to find out information about the property. Great place for those who like to cook & fish off of a nice deck."

  • Absolutely AWESOME way to spend a vacation!!

    "My best friend, of 27 years, and I have a standing ritual to spend the first week of May every year, together with our husbands! Both of our wedding anniversaries are in May as well as both of our husbands birthdays! We all love to ride motorcycles, so we got in touch with the owners and stayed at this incredible retreat for a week! Everything you need is within a short driving distance, but once you get to the house, you'll never want to leave! It was so relaxing and wonderful to be able to take off riding the motorcycles on The Tail of th Dragon and Cherahola Skyway and so on, then come home and relax out on the screened in deck with a home cooked meal! Only to go down to the dock and fish or just sit! The view is spectacular and the whole experience is a pleasurable one! We will definately make this our yearly retreat!! Thanks so much, Jane for letting us share a piece of your Heaven on Earth!"

  • Adventures in the mountain mist

    "I had a great time at the cabin. It was definitely a picturesque setting which I will remember for some time. Each morning and evening, the mountains and lake presented a different scene for a picture that I was able to capture. Cooking on the grill each evening on the large deck overlooking the mountains and lake was tranquelizing. Each day was a different adventure to travel to different areas of the park. I was particularly interested in the trail hikes to the water falls, Cade's Cove to explore how people lived 150 year ago, the horse trails that were everywhere and tubing on the mountain streams. Hope to come again some day."

  • Beautiful Spot on the Lake

    "We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely home on the lake. The location is great, the house was really nice, clean and neat and it was quiet in the neighborhood and on the lake, which we love. LeeAnn and Suzette were super to work with and it was a treat having the use of kayaks and a dock. Thanks for a great vacay, we hope to be back!"

Lake Santeetlah Travel Tips

Discover Lake Santeetlah Rentals

Discover for yourself the hidden vacation destination near Lake Santeetlah rentals in North Carolina. Lake Santeetlah is both a lake and the name of a town. The town is located in Graham County, six miles north of Robbinsville and 15 miles from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Many of the Smoky Mountain cabins in Lake Santeetlah, NC are secondary homes for residents of Florida and Georgia. They travel to Lake Santeetlah vacation homes for the hottest months of summer as the weather is still warm but not unbearable here.

The Beginnings of Lake Santeetlah Vacation Homes

The coast of North Carolina was settled rather early by European settlers; however, the area surrounding Lake Santeetlah vacation homes was not settled early. It took until 1893 for settlers to brave the mountainous terrain and set up homes. Settlers built the Santeetlah Dam to use the river water from the Cheoah. Unfortunately, the dam broke and caused flooding in the area. Eleven years later, the U.S. Forest Service purchased the land and reconstructed the town which you can visit when you stay at Lake Santeetlah, NC cabins.

For the next several years after the U.S. Forest Service bought the land, it changed hands between developers. Homes and communities were added offering a place for Lake Santeetlah rentals, bingo, dancing, and more.

Lake Santeetlah, NC Cabins near the Full-service Marina

When you travel to Lake Santeetlah, NC cabins, you can experience the beauty of the area. Fishing is one recreational activity to enjoy, especially because you can cook your own bass, walleye, crappie, or trout at your Lake Santeetlah vacation homes. There is a full-service marina at the lake where you can put your own boat in for fishing, waterskiing, or riding around in.

Two Hundered Hiking Trails by Lake Santeetlah Rentals

Lake Santeetlah offers more than water sports since it is in the center of forested land. There are more than 200 hiking trails in the Cheoah District alone that you can enjoy. On one hike, you can walk eight miles from Lake Santeetlah to the Appalachian Trail. Before you leave your Lake Santeetlah rentals for the day, pack a picnic lunch to enjoy from a high point on the trails.
