  • Heaven On Earth

    "This was our first time visiting Lake Santeetlah and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. What an amazing view of what has to be one of the most beautiful lakes on earth. The cozy,rustic feel of the cabin made us feel right at home. Aside from a visit to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest one day we just enjoyed the comfort of the cabin and splendor of that beautiful lake...canoeing, boating, fishing, swimming,and most importantly...relaxing. Can't wait to go back!"

  • Relaxing Vacation

    "What a wonderful place to vacation. It is as pictured. It's quiet, beautiful, and very cozy. We rented a ski boat for the week and easily tied up to the large dock. Clean dock for swimming and fishing. Our 5 year old son caught and released his first fish off the dock. We spent a lot of time on the boat enjoying the beautiful lake. The house was nice to come home to after being in the sun for hours. The screened in porch is very warm and inviting. We cooked a lot in the kitchen and ate our meals on the screened porch. We used the Weber charcoal grill a lot! It was very nice on the deck while grilling. Our son loved resting on the deck swing. The neighbor hood is nice for walking. The owners were very nice and easy to work with. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return."

    "My family of four from naples,fl enjoyed this lakefront cottage with a dock. It was fully stocked, clean and lovely. I would like to see them add the use of a kayak or canoe. Not too far to many interesting things to do as well. Very relaxing!"

  • Nice and Peaceful

    "My husband and I recently spent a week at this cottage. It is very cute and charming. We absolutely LOVED the screened porch and spent all of our evenings sitting out there. This place is great for fishing and kayaking. We used the grill a lot. Just be prepared that the fridge and stove are not full size. We just used our coolers to keep drinks cold. I highly recommend this place for a quiet get-away. If you like adult beverages, bring your own as this is a DRY county. Be sure to walk the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. It is beautiful. Leann and Suzette are very helpful and accommodating."

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.
