About the property

New Home on Lake Nantahala with a large dock and 2013 Pontoon Boat

New home in a gated neighborhood, beautifully and newly furnished on Lake Nantahala. House is 3 Bedrooms 2.5 Bathrooms a large dock which includes a 2013 Sun Tracker 22' Pontoon Boat during the off-season. The lake is a hidden gem with stunning views sitting at 3000' elevation in Western North Carolina surrounded on all sides by beautiful mountains at elevations from 4,000 to 6,000 feet high. The lake is fed by pure clear mountain spring water from dozens of waterfalls surrounding the lake.

The water is incredibly clear and in some places provides over 20' of visibility. Due to the elevation, the temperature at the lake is consistently 12 degrees cooler than nearby cities like Chattanoogo, Knoxville, Asheville and Atlanta.

This cozy home comes equipped with all the amenities for a comfortable stay along with all new handmade rustic mountain furniture. The granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and granite counter tops and stone tile in the bathrooms complement the rustic but sophisticated elegance of the home's interior. The pristine water and breathtaking views make the long flight of private steps worth walking down to over 300 ft of private lake frontage. The new 26' x 20' floating dock made of Brazilian hard wood is one of the largest floating docks on the lake. The comfortable lounge chairs and Adirondack chairs make the dock an incredible space for entertaining as well as platform for full enjoyment of all the activities the lake has to offer.

Enjoy views of the pristine island a short swim or kayak ride away and the Great Smoky Mountains in the distance. Soak up the sun on the dock or hop into the water on floats or tubes and listen to the soothing sounds of the waterfall at the end of the cove. Hop in the canoe or one of two kayaks and get great exercise while exploring one of the most undiscovered, pristine and beautiful lakes in America. Rent a boat from the local Lake's End Marina and enjoy days of water skiing, tubing or wake boarding.

This house is a nature lover's paradise. Surrounded by thousands of acres of protected National Forest, crystal clear streams and waterfalls which are as abundant as the wildlife which includes bald eagles, elk, rabbits, beaver and deer.

The fully equipped kitchen has all new modern appliances including a gas stove. Two bedrooms contain large king size beds and the third bedroom contains two queen beds. All beds have comfortable new mattresses with 300 count cotton sheets.

The lake is nestled into the mountains and the terrain is relatively steep. This house is an excellent choice for a healthy, robust, athletic and active family. It is not well suited for elderly people or for people with mobility issues. The 100 steps from the main floor of the house to the dock is no problem for active families.

Why Tom Buckley chose Topton

This property is only a year old. All the appliances are new, the furniture is new and everything is sparkling clean, including the dock.

What makes this house unique

During the off season the house comes with a 2013 SunTracker 22' Pontoon boat with a 50 HP motor. Similar boats for rent cost $1,500 per week at the local Marina. This is an incredible value and having the boat provides access to all the special things this unique lake has to offer. Imagine checking into the house and being able to jump into the boat and be on the water within minutes of checking into the house. The Brazilian Hardwood Dock is the largest footprint allowable on the lake for a private dock. The dock gets full sun from 10:00 am to sunset every day and is a great place to hang out. Take the boat out with your favorite beverages and some snacks and enjoy a beautiful sunset cruise on your very first evening at the lake!

Beautiful, enjoyable, perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I had a mini getaway here for my husband's birthday. We were here with two other couples and everyone was amazed at the location, the scenery, the home, and the lake. The home is spectacular! You'll instantly feel at peace here and ready to relax. At night when not on the lake, trust me, you'll want to lounge on the cabin-inspired couch. We'd fight over that seat on game nights!

The lake... wow. Crystal clear. I understand why this lake is rated as one of the top lakes in the USA. It's amazing! There's a marina not far from the house where you can rent power boats. We spent hours exploring the lake and swimming... and would have loved to have spent more! The boat rental isn't expensive, especially compared to other lakes. And, we had just as much fun and just as much beauty hanging out on the dock and in floats right off the dock. Their dock is beautiful and seemed brand new. The view from it is gorgeous and we had so much fun just hanging out with friends on it.

I can't recommend this home enough and I can't wait for an opportunity to come back. We would definitely rent this home again!
