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 Almond

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.

Beautiful view!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Fontana Lake and first time being able to stay right on the lake. We LOVED being up on the deck, enjoying the view. We spent every late afternoon thru the evening there. We could walk to the lake, but often took the golf cart. What a convenience!!! The dock was perfect for our evening swims. My son in law enjoyed that he could put his boat in and take it out right there at the dock. So convenient!! We cooked all of our evening meals at the house - never felt the need to leave. I was a little worried looking at the pictures that the space might be a little small for 4 adults and 2 children, but rest assured, the space is awesome. I think the pictures fooled me. We had plenty of room to do all we wanted to do. We would defiantly stay here again.

Great house with seclusion and a lot of room. Comfortable and clean. Beautiful views. Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Lakefront. The house is great. Right on the lake with gorgeous views from the deck. Dock is spacious and has chairs and floats and unbrellas. Quiet setting. Well-kept, clean house. Owners were very responsive to all communication. House is very convenient to Tsali, Almond Marina, Nantahala Village, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Bryson City, and Cherokee. Lake Fontana is amazing: beautiful, surrounded by pristine mountans and GSMNP, very little development, not crowded at all. We rented a boat for a day and just had time to make it to thw dam and back with some great tubing. There were places that we could see a mile and not another boat in sight! Water was warn enough to swim in June despitbit being a deep water mountain lake. Great vacation.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay for a long weekend. There was plenty of space for 10 people to sleep. It was just a short walk down to the dock, and the lake is beautiful.
