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.

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.

If this property is booked on the up to date calendar, please check availability for our 3 bedroom cabin on Fontana Lake VRBO #499936.

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).

Our log home provides luxury amenities such as granite in all 3 1/2 bathrooms and kitchen, stainless steel full kitchen with wine cooler and wineglass rack, Cuisinart cappuccino/expresso/latte maker, Keurig/Mr Coffee makers, cookware and dinnerware suitable for large groups, spices, kitchen gadgets, limited paper products/laundry supplies, kitchen seating for 16, home theatre style seating in living room with 55' LCD, ipod player, fishing pole rack, and wood burning fireplace. The 10 x 30 ' upstairs deck is partially covered with a propane grill and additional filled tanks, 4 wood rocking chairs/cracker barrel checker set, 2 loungers, and outside picnic table by grill. The master bedroom has a king bed, large electric fireplace, and a 32' LCD, reading area, jacuzzi tub, and slate tiled shower. The 2 bedrooms upstairs both have queen beds and share a bathroom. 'Hunting Lodge' themed game area downstairs with regulation sized pool table.

About Gaylene de Weijer

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.

Gaylene de Weijer purchased this Lodge in 2011

Why Gaylene de Weijer chose Robbinsville

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.

What makes this Lodge unique

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.

It accommodated 11 of us perfectly. It was pretty cold during our stay but the hot tub was a hit and there was still always something to do.


                                                                          Shelley D.

                                                                          Wonderful Property and an Enjoyable Stay.

My family and the three other families that vacationed over the long weekend truly enjoyed ourselves. The kids loved the movie theater room and the s’mores basket that was left by the management firm - thank you again Revonda. I would recommend the house to anyone looking to experience Western North Carolina; it is an easy drive to Bryson City, Maggie Valley and Cherokee.

                                                                          Christmas in the Smokey Mountians

The house was wonderful and had sooo many great amenities that we were never bored. The kids never complained about not having anything to do, if anything the spent more time hanging with each other and us then they have in a long time. I would definitely recommend staying at Lake Fontana Lodge. We even talked about coming back during the summer to canoe and fish.

It was the most beautiful and most memorable trip I will ever have. The family and I loved the cabin! It was our Winter Wonderland Vacation just 2 weeks before Christmas. Our little trip to the "North Pole". The cabin was perfect for our group. Thank you for such a great place to stay. Highly recommend!
