If you are wanting a memorable summer vacation with family and friends, this is the home for you. Exquisite custom log cabin home built in 2007 nestled in the Nantahala National Forest on Lake Nantahala. This house is like new with all the modern conveniences of the city. It is a 5,800 square foot home with 2,000 square feet of covered decks. The lower deck has a jacuzzi for 8 that overlooks the star-lit sky. The decks provide views of the luscious green forest across and the lake that takes on the forest green directly below. There is 130 feet of lakefront with a sandy beach and stacked stone shoreline and a dock to lounge around on or dive off of. You can go to the gazebo and take a nap on the hammock. Bring your boat or rent one from Lake's End and go skiing, wakeboarding, fishing or just cruise the pristine lake and view the Smoky Mountains that border it.

In the evening make s'mores around the firepit at the lake. We are looking forward to you staying with us. Keep in mind there is a rental agreement you will need to sign after you've booked.

Prefer to remain indoors, curl up to a good book, play cards, board games, watch a good movie.

Best House on Lake Nantahala

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on lake Nantahala several times and this the best one. It is a beautiful house on a quiet cove on the lake. The design is perfect for family and friends to enjoy time together. The owners are great to work with. The house in extremely clean, kitchen is well stocked for cooking with excellent appliances, oversized refrigerator to hold all your food for your stay. The lake view is beautiful and the dock is great for the kids to fish, to dock your boat and to have fun on the water. Our large family of 12 was comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of our time at the lake this year.

Better than described

  • 5 of 5

I would just like to say that from the first call to the last email, the property owner makes renting this cabin very straightforward. Add to that a cabin which is appointed and maintianed so perfectly that my entire family was happy - from the kids to the in-laws. This place is great!!! I would gladly recommend this cabin to anyone. VERY CLEAN AND VERY WELL APPOINTED - the huge kitchen made for some great family meals while enjoying the warmth of the fire:)

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful well-equipped home. There were ten adults and two teenagers. It had every amenity that you can imagine. The owners clearly take great pride to insure that their guests are more than comfortable. The lake was absolutely stunning and I would highly recommend renting a boat so that you can fully enjoy it. The location was somewhat remote but not too far from civilization (25 minutes to the grocery store, etc.). There were plenty of activities to do in the house or on the lake so there was really no reason to leave.

If you like to catch fish, you may want to try a local river or a different part of the lake. The fish in the lake near the dock for this house are very smart.

We purchased inflatable tubes for everyone in our party and spent quite a bit of time just floating on the lake - I highly recommend it. There was even an electric pump in the house so we were able to easily inflate the tubes.

Great relaxing vacation...

Best of both worlds: Beautiful and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was one of our best. You name it, this house had it! The lake water was fabulous, and no boats or jet skies buzzing by all day was a plus. Exploring in the Kayak was so peaceful and beautiful! A little beach down across the way had visitor's mini contributions of art work made of sticks, rocks and sand. Delightful!

We enjoyed nature all day, then enjoyed the high tech, fully equipped with anything you could think of, house at night. Movies, campfires, multiple games, chess on the porch, looking at the stars in the hot tub (which by the way was the cleanest hot tub I have ever seen). PLENTY to do just staying at the house. Massive amounts of room to have your own "space".

Tubing with our 9 year-old son in Bryson at the National park for the day was a hit. We found the local's suggestion to use "J&J's" tubes where you help yourself and leave 4 dollars per tube in a box. Rafting for 1/2 day at NOC was also great. My dad's favorite part was teaching my husband how to fish for trout. This was a miracle since my husband never liked to fish. After their adventures in multiple local streams, they arrived at the house full of stories and beautiful rainbow trout for diner. My husband says he can't wait to do it again. Priceless.

The owner was always available, extremely helpful and was a pleasure to interact with. The only thing we struggled with (because we were out of shape) was walking up and down the steep driveway to our van since you need a 4-wheel drive vehicle to park right at the house.

Overall, this was one vacation that I didn't want to end. We still had so much places we wanted to explore, yet ran out of days. Would love to come back and enjoy it again!

Very nice vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is well-appointed for a large group of people. We swam, fished, canoed, and went for walks around the lake. We could hear the waterfall but never found it. At night the stars were unbelievable! Local activities include the Joyce Kilmer Forest, gem mining, numerous waterfall hikes, Nantahala Outdoor Center, and much more. Everyone on our trip wanted to stay another week. The only drawbacks were no cell phone coverage (not just at this house but pretty much everywhere) and having to park at the top of the driveway (no 4wd on our minivan). Overall, our vacation was amazing and I am so glad we chose this house!

Luxury, fun, relaxation, sports , and adventure

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I actually watched as this house was being built, then spent two wonderful summers there as guests once it was finished. One thing is certain, the owners paid attention to every detail you can imagine. It is paradise. Its hard to find a spot that can be both romantic and great for families. Lots of sports and activities including water skiing, swimming, kayaking, hiking, rafting, and jet sking. The lake is so clean and pure. Be sure to check out the secret waterfalls.

Beautiful waterfall to view on Lake Nantahala as well as rope jumping. The Nantahala Outdoor Center is approximately 40 minutes away. This is a whitewater rafting venue for ages 7 and up. Other activities available, see website. Also near us is Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail, Bartram Trail, Wayah Bald (5,384 ft elevation), additional waterfalls and mining.
