You will surely remember the time spent with family and friends in the beautiful Stillwater Mountain House, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains on Lake Santeetlah. There's something for everyone here. Guests can enjoy all of the amenities of the lake while relaxing on one of the three large decks, swimming or boating off the private dock on deep water, or exploring the lake on one of the four kayaks available. Bring your own boat, or you can rent a ski boat, pontoon boat, or other watercraft nearby as well.
Inside the home, you'll enjoy lake views from every room. (The Nantahala Forest is directly across the lake from the house, making it seem like your own private retreat!) You'll also find two family rooms, three large bedrooms that each open to the lake, a large great room with a harvest table, living area and TV, and a fully furnished kitchen. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with en suite on the first floor, while the two remaining rooms upstairs are furnished with a king-size and two twin size bed(s), for sleeping 6 people. There is also a full size pull out sofa in the upstairs family room with a comfortable mattress for 2 more people. After a fun-filled day, guests can enjoy the gorgeous sunsets over the Snowbird Mountains from the dock.
There are many activities nearby such as fishing, hiking, shopping, kayaking, rafting, mountain biking, and dining.

About Chris & Tom Stapleton
Tom and I both grew up in Centerville, Ohio, and were married in 1987. We continue to maintain the first historic home that we purchased in 1989 in Tipp City, Ohio. We have two grown children and two dogs that we love dearly. I am a retired elementary school teacher and Tom is a builder, currently working for a heavy civil contractor. We've "rescued" and sold two older homes in our hometown, and we are excited to share our new home with you!
Chris & Tom Stapleton purchased this House in 2017
Why Chris & Tom Stapleton chose Yellow Creek
We started thinking about our dream retirement home several years ago, considering different lakes between Ohio and Georgia. As our search focused on the mountains along the Tennessee / North Carolina Line, we stumbled upon the relatively unknown lake called Lake Santeetlah. We knew right away that this quiet mountain lake with National Forest on 86% of the shoreline and lake levels that stay within 10 feet year round, was the perfect lake. We spent several weeks looking for our forever home, and when we walked through this house and onto the back deck for the first time, we knew that Stillwater Mountain House was the right home for us.

Stunning setting/house lakeside in the mountains
The house was just spectacular! We had a wonderful stay-so pretty and quietly tucked away. The house itself was everything we expected-cute, exceptionally decorated, comfortable sitting area, ample seating for eating, great bedrooms, plenty of room for playing games and working on puzzles. We ate all our meals there and the kitchen that had everything we needed. Bonus-the grocery store was just a few minutes away. The dock was perfect for multiple people fishing and just enjoying the view and the kayaks were a big hit! We rented a boat that was brought to the dock and picked up-couldn't be any easier! We will definitely be back! And we highly recommend.
