About Jane Jett

Our family has owned property at Lake Santeetlah since 1964 and we love it here!!!

Jane Jett purchased this cottage in 1967

Why Jane Jett chose Lake Santeetlah

The lake is clean and most of it is on the Nantahala National Forest so is relatively quiet with low traffic on it. This is probably one of the most beautiful areas of the southeast.

What makes this cottage unique

Serenity!!! The most Beautiful Scenery in this part of the country!

Great property, perfect location, unforgettable vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came for the 2017 Eclipse, so it was bound to be memorable, but the lovely cabin helped make our vacation. The large common room and enclosed porch were a hub of activity, while the dining room, deck and bedrooms, as well as paths and patios offered quieter spaces.

The placement on the lake is perfect, on a point within a larger cove where we felt comfortable letting our smaller children swim knowing the faster boats were farther out in the main channel. The ample dock gave us room to tie all our armada as well as some amazing fishing.

If you want to fish for cats, bring your deep-water gear, because our fisherman had only 5 pound test and hooked a monster. He fought it for hours - even after his reel gave up and he was turning it by blistered fingers. I kid you not, the beast was huge. Unfortunately the 5-pound test gave before his will did, but know that there are lunkers in the deep waters.

Woot -- we 5 LOVE everything about this place!

  • 5 of 5

We 5 LOVE everything about this place -- accommodating owner; lovely views from every part of the house; TWO porches for close-up viewing of the lake and hummingbirds; AND great new dock for swimming off of & looking at the views. A group of 5 friends have been gathering here every summer for about 4 years now and it keeps getting better and sweeter each year. BTW, free wifi is down in the "city hall" just by the marina. (24 minutes down the mountain by foot -- with lovely views all the way down.

Absolutely AWESOME way to spend a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend, of 27 years, and I have a standing ritual to spend the first week of May every year, together with our husbands! Both of our wedding anniversaries are in May as well as both of our husbands birthdays! We all love to ride motorcycles, so we got in touch with the owners and stayed at this incredible retreat for a week! Everything you need is within a short driving distance, but once you get to the house, you'll never want to leave! It was so relaxing and wonderful to be able to take off riding the motorcycles on The Tail of th Dragon and Cherahola Skyway and so on, then come home and relax out on the screened in deck with a home cooked meal! Only to go down to the dock and fish or just sit!

The view is spectacular and the whole experience is a pleasurable one! We will definately make this our yearly retreat!! Thanks so much, Jane for letting us share a piece of your Heaven on Earth!

My most relaxing Vacation ever....

  • 5 of 5

A home a way from home, only BETTER...relaxing, comfortable....and so much fun watching my grandchildren and children enjoy all the wonderful entertainment this lakehouse santeetlah lake offered...the house is very accomdating and had everything one could wish for...the location is conveinient for shopping. taking long walks was great , every one was so friendly and welcoming.

we had dinner at a really nice restrauant, you had to go up a mountain, but believe me it was

worth the drive ..the food was wonderful...we enjoyed the farms that we could go to and buy fresh

produce..and pick our own if we preferred, and we did pick some cherries. this is a warm and

beautiful lake house....I would love to go every year with my family. thank you for making your home available to us.

OMG...If this is heaven...take me now !!

  • 5 of 5

If there are greater views than sitting on this big deck, looking over the cleanest Lake in the US, I would love to have someone tell me where it is. A comfy home like atmosphere and a view of the water from every room. So quiet at night you can slip off to sleep listening to the water lap the sea wall. That is how close you are to the water. An enormous dock that you can spend the day on and when it gets hot just roll over into the water. I just feels as if someone invited you to their home for vacation.A family or couples vacation you will never forget.Play games, watch movies or go for long walks. It has it all. You are 20 minutes from rafting the Nantahala River , a big grocery in Robbinsville, 6 miles away and just as close is Joyce Kilmer Forest for hiking...although you will have a hard time tearing yourself away from the lake. It is casual and comfortable and if you cannot unwind here than you need to reevaluate your distractions just total relaxation.

We stayed here and loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family (3) shared this beautiful A-frame with another family and it was heaven on earth. Waking up to the spectacular view of the misty morning Smokie Mts, sipping coffee while sitting on the deck overlooking the lake was how we started every wonderful morning there! The house had everything we needed for a relaxing and comfortable get away. The lake is pristine, and was the center of attaction for our entire stay. I can't wait to return!
