Overview

About the property

Lake Front House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This lake cabin has great lake access and is a short drive to rafting, biking, ziplining, Cherokee, Bryson city and Robbinsville. You have your own private section of the dock. Watch the boats go by from our large deck or while relaxing in the hot tub. Bring your boat! During the summer you can put it in next to our dock and tie off right away. No wasting all afternoon hunting for a boat slip just to get on the water.

Walk down to the dock to swim or fish. Bring your boat, water skis, and/or jetski and play on the lake or take a leisure cruise through this beautiful mountain scaped lake, but be sure to pack some sandwiches because a picnic on this beautiful lake or at historical Fontana Dam has fun written all over it!

Go white water rafting or kayaking down the Nantahala River, take a ride on the Great Smokey Mountains Railroad, go horse back riding, hike the Appalachian Trail, hike or bring your mountain bike to challenge one or all of the famous Tsali Bike Trails, tour historical Cherokee or try your luck at the Cherokee Casino all just minutes from our home. We like to think of our area of WNC as God's Theme Park, a place for recreation and relaxation sure to recharge your soul!

NEED MORE ROOM?

Do you have a big party and need an extra home? See if our home next door is available or better yet give us a call. It's much more fun when everyone is close.

Why George chose Smoky Mountains

We grew up in the mountains of WNC and fell in love with the beauty and tranquility of Fontana Lake and all of the activities close by. Lake front property is pretty rare on this lake with the Nantahala National Forest & Great Smoky Mountains National Park protecting most of the lake front and adjoining properties. We were extremely fortunate to find this little gem and believe we should provide an opportunity for others to enjoy and treasure it as we do.

Wonderful Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing Eclipse week vacation and everything was perfect! The house is large, clean with a spectacular view of Fontana Lake and area. Kitchen was fully equipped and we made some great meals together. The stars in the night sky are amazing, and sharing the hot tub made it so much fun. Prince Boat Dock was very accommodating for pontoon rental. NOC is so close and has a fantastic long and adventurous zipline adventure. Was wonderful being able to have all our adult children, along with our dog (so nice to find a nice place that understands dogs are important family members), with us. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely home, George!

Beautiful home, Beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

The house and lake are both beautiful and quiet. Crystal clear waters and great access via the dock. The hill isn't a big deal and the golf cart makes things easier. The house is clean and spacious. The pics don't do it justice. Plenty of parking. We had two families with us for our annual vacation and all had a great time. No complaints and we'll be back.

Great family weekend on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time house was clean and had everything we needed. Hot tub is right outside the master bedroom. The golf cart was good for taking us down to the dock and the dock was great place to tie up our boat and swim from. It was also nice to have a boat launch ramp right there so we did not need to go far. The area is beautiful. Fontana lake is very clean and clear. We are alreadt looking at going back again soon
