Property description

MISTY LAUREL CHALET (mistylaurel dot com) OFFERS GREAT LAKE & MOUNTAIN VIEWS, WI-FI, CELL SERVICE, DIRECTV AND MANY OTHER AMENITIES!
____________
LEAF SEASON IS UPON US! CALL / EMAIL ME FOR SPECIAL LAST-MINUTE DEALS OCT. 23- NOV. 5! On a ridgetop at 3600 feet elevation, Misty Laurel Chalet has a beautiful view of Lake Nantahala (which is at 3000' elevation) and the Smoky Mountains beyond. Imagine awakening to a gorgeous view of the lake and then taking a brisk walk thru a lovely forest with crisp, clean air. In fact, Robert Redford recently filmed 'A Walk in the Woods' nearby, at Wayah Bald, based upon the book of the same name by Bill Bryson (now showing at theaters across the country). The film's aerial videos were shot by the same video crew who did the videography for our Visit Misty Laurel YouTube video!

Misty Laurel is spacious - 2400 square feet - with two living areas, both equipped with flat screen TVs, DirecTV HD satellite receivers & DVD players, in addition to three bedrooms, so the kids can entertain themselves downstairs while the adults enjoy themselves upstairs. There's also an extra dining table, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker downstairs, so that increases the privacy options. Take a look at the floorplan illustrations below.

For ADVENTURE SEEKERS: check out the Area Attractions on our supplemental website at www (dot) mistylaurel (dot) com for information about horseback riding, ziplining, whitewater rafting, biking, fishing and hiking.

HOW's THIS FOR A FREEBIE? For rentals of at least a week in duration, we are again offering your choice of a FREE half-day pontoon boat rental at Lake's End Marina or a FREE half-day guided fishing trip on Lake Nantahala with Dale Raxter [www (dot) nantahalaguides (dot) com] , or a $150 voucher toward a guided fly fishing trip on the Nantahala River with Dakota Rogers [www (dot) nantahalaonthefly (dot) com]! For many of our previous guests, these excursions have been among the most memorable highlights of their visits to Misty Laurel. Lake Nantahala is spectacular and there's no better way to see it than from a boat. As well as being an excellent guide, Dale is a life-long Nantahala resident and will regale you with his tales as a park ranger and tracker! He was featured in the recent book "Bear in the Back Seat" about the career of a Smoky Mtn. Natl. Park ranger and wildlife expert. Dakota is the only local fishing guide who can offer a licensed and insured float fishing trip on the famous trout haven, the Nantahala River!

MISTY LAUREL / NOC AFFILIATION NOW ENTITLES YOU TO A 10% DISCOUNT AT THE WORLD-FAMOUS NANTAHALA OUTDOOR CENTER!

We now have an arrangement with the Nantahala Outdoor Center that entitles Misty Laurel Chalet guests to a 10% discount on the following NOC activities: rafting on any of the 7 rivers served by the NOC, Fontana Lake Kayak Tour, Recreational Kayak Rentals and the rafting portion of the Rapid Transit trip with the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. This offer is good for ALL our guests, regardless of the length of your stay! Misty Laurel Chalet is the only cabin at Lake Nantahala offering this NOC discount! Every Sat. nite during June, the NOC has live music (check out the NOC website at NOC dot COM).

In addition to lake and stream fishing, rafting and kayaking, hiking is an option, as well as gem mining, horseback riding and visiting nearby attractions, such as the Great Smoky Mtn. Natl. Park, Gatlinburg, the incredible Biltmore House (near Asheville), and shopping in Highlands. Downhill skiing and tubing are available throughout the winter at the Cataloochee Ski Area, about an hour's drive to the north at Maggie Valley. These make great day trips, along with visiting the museums and the casino in Cherokee. There are so many fun things to do, you'll need to come back several times to experience them all!

For after-hours entertainment, there are two HD TVs (46-inch & 55 inch), both with HD DirecTV receivers, plus DVD players, and a VCR. Kids (and husbands!) can be exiled to the big-screen TV in the recreation room on the lower level while others enjoy quiet and privacy in the the main floor living area and the loft. We have high-speed DSL service, so you can stream videos from Netflix, etc., and we have Chromecasts on both TVs to facilitate this!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Pat and Jo are, respectively, a retired scientist (biologist) and educator (Spanish & French). Our puppy, Mitzi, a miniature poodle, loves being at Misty Laurel!

Why the Owner Chose Topton, NC, USA:
We love to get away from the heat and humidity of Florida (Tallahassee) and Misty Laurel Chalet at Lake Nantahala is a great place to cool off and have fun!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
While it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, we still need to be able to keep in touch. DSL internet access provides for this need, so we can still fulfill our obligations as consultants, etc.
