Fontana Passion Lake Lodge is a luxury 5 bedroom log home directly on Fontana Lake with a private dock/slide. This log home is located in a secluded, quiet, remote, scenic, and peaceful vacation escape destination in the smoky mountains of North Carolina.
The house has Hughes Net Next Gen 5's top plan for the area at 20GB data for the entire month and 25 MB speed. If it is absolutely critical to always have landline and wifi and or if your group plans on using the house as a secondary office, needs to on-line game (not possible at this time), needs to download large files, stream movies/music/ect you might want to book another property. The wifi is only to be used to check e-mail, wifi calling, and internet browsing. Due to the remote location of the house there is no provider with unlimited satellite wifi service in the area. There is no cell service possible in the immediate area due to remote cell towers. Cell phones can be connected to the house wifi if they have the wifi calling feature.
Fontana Lake is a TVA managed lake and water levels vary throughout the year. The lake is slowly drawn down (not drained) after labor day until March and is about 50 linear feet lower during the winter months (lake depth over 200 feet in areas) which means the dock is not floating from November until April and rests on the shore bank during that time. Guests can still access the water by walking off the concrete steps and walking down the shore bank.
The house is located near the end of a one lane hard packed dirt/gravel road. In the very rare event that a vehicle is encountered coming in the opposite directions, guests can safely pull over or back up a little to let the other car pass or vice versa.
Very close to whitewater rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, world class mountain biking at Tsali recreation center, fishing, hiking/exploring the Great Smoky mountain national park, and touring the scenic roadways like the Tail of the Dragon (hwy 28).
