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.
