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.

Great location and view with comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

The property was very conveniently located. It was accessible and close to convenience stores. Our group enjoyed the beautiful foggy view every morning on the lake. The property had everything one might need on a vacation. Strongly recommend booking this place again!

Great Get Away for the Weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful. Very clean when we arrived and everything we needed was available including plenty of towels and bedding. The view was gorgeous overlooking the lake and mountains. You are away from it all so make sure to stop before you arrive and get your groceries which we did in Waynesville. Having the golf cart to use was helpful in getting down to the dock. The lake level was definitely down during the time we were there but we were still able to enjoy the lake from the dock and other areas. Bryson City is close by and I would definitely recommend a day trip into Bryson City or even book a train ride. The fire pit and hot tub was an added feature that we took advantage of as well and enjoyed as we all set by the fire and roasted s'mores. This home is great for family time!

Happy Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during our "destination" Thanksgiving and everything turned out perfectly. The house , the deck and the grounds were clean and neat. The kitchen is well furnished in terms of dishes (but you need a new can opener that one's on its last turn). The home is warm and cozy and there are plenty of extra blankets. Despite being late fall we spent a lot of time in the hot tub, or cuddled in blankets drinking coffee on the deck. We took a very short drive to Nantahala Nat forest area and went hiking as well. There is a chiminea as well for your use. We had a glitch with the wi-fi, but sent a text and the owner was on it, and had the solution in no time. They only drawback was that someone left food in the drain and we fought fruit flies. . .arrgh! However we are hoping to stay again early summer. This was well worth the $$ and the drive.

Long Weekend on Fontana

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I did a three day weekend on Fontana, and found the lake house to be very nice. It was so clean we were afraid to go inside, but once we got past that, we found a well furnished and adequately stocked home in a fantastic location! We rented a small boat to fish from and enjoyed that, but found that simply fishing from the dock provided great action as well. We would recommend this house, but a week later would have been better for enjoying the color in the trees that had not quite reached it's peak.

Great House in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

George was excellent to work and we loved our time at his home. The house was clean, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen fully stocked with everything you need for cooking. Deck is awesome and was used extensively for reading, photography, dining, sunbathing and just listening to nature in all it’s glory. The location is perfect for those who want to get away from it all, but within quick road trip for those who want to experience all the area has to offer. Having direct access to the lake was great and we definitely took advantage of having Prince Boat Dock right there renting a pontoon boat for a couple of days. The lake is clean, tubing was fun, the Dam was fun to enjoy from both sides - just wish fishing was a little more productive for us but hey… Thanks so much for opening your home - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
