* Fontana Lake water levels vary throughout the year. The lake is slowly drawn down after labor day and continues to drop to approx 50 linear feet at lowest level during the winter months (lake depth over 200 feet in areas) and typically starts coming back up in March . Although the private dock is typically floating from April 15 to October 15 and rests on the shore bank from mid October to early April guests can step off dock walkway and access the water by walking down the bank which is typically dry with shale/rocks.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My husband, daughter, and I love this area and this house with a passion which is why we called it Fontana Passion Lake Lodge. We love the peaceful 12,000 acre lake with 240 miles of shoreline which provides numerous opportunities for the outdoor sportsperson. We personally love to waterski, kneeboad, and kayak. My husband is a physical therapist and I am in medical sales. We hope you love this house and area as much as we do and come back often to relax, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and reenergize.

Why the Owner Chose Robbinsville, NC, USA:
We have been going to this area for over 30 years and always wanted to own property there. Since 85% of property on Fontana Lake is owned by the forest service (accounts for the minimal boat traffic, unspoiled, and peaceful area )we were fortunate to find this property for sale and made our dream come true. We love the close proximity to Asheville, mountain biking, rafting, tubing at Bryson City, casinos at Cherokee, and breathtaking mountain views.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Directly on the lake with immediate water access and private boat dock with slide. Secluded area with minimal homes and boat traffic on lake to enjoy the scenery.
