Property description

This is one of the rare lake front homes in the area. You can have your own boat dock on Fontana Lake (southern area, near Little Tennessee River). Amazing architecture and luxury decor combined with lots of space for larger families makes this an incredible place to build family traditions.

Kitchen — appointed with granite counter tops, modern appliances including cook top (LP gas), oven, dishwasher, microwave and coffee maker. We also provide you with all the dishes, utensils and cooking tools you'll need. A gas grill is provided for BBQ connoisseurs (full propane tank included).
Great room — features large living and dining area with table suitable for seating 10+ (additional bars stool seating at kitchen counter for 3-4 people). The modern-rustic decor features distressed hickory hardwood floors, stone fireplace and hand-crafted round western red cedar character log post-and-beam design. There is satellite dish service throughout the cabin, but the main living room is for family time in front of the fireplace and there is no TV there. The kitchen has a small TV. Family fun and TV is downstairs in the daylight basement rec room where there is a large HDTV with CD/DVD (bring your own music or listen to one of the dozens of digital music channels provided by digital satellite). There is also room for games and additional sleeping on the upstairs loft.
Sleeping Accommodations — We feature both down and foam pillows as well as down comforters. Some beds w/ pillow-top mattress and luxury, all-cotton linens. High End shower towels are provided for the base number of occupancy with additional towels for hot tub use.
Lower Level — The king bedroom on this level is like a second master bedroom. This is a large bedroom that is just off the rec room and has its own TV and bathroom with oversized tub and handheld shower. Additional sleeping is available in the rec area on the queen-size sleeper sofa.
Middle Floor — This is the entry level of the cabin. There is a large king master bedroom and bath, a laundry room, and a half-bathroom near the front door.
Upstairs Floor — The open loft upstairs has a separately divided area (but still partially open to the living room below) functions as one of the bedrooms and has 2 queen beds and a gas-log fireplace. This room shares a bathroom with a closed queen bedroom that is also on this level.

    Tsali Recreation Area-Nantahala National Forest View on map

    Probably the most popular features of Tsali Recreation Area are the 39 miles of trails suited for mountain bikers and horse-back riders, as well as hikers. The 4-loop system offers a variety of landscapes. You can climb 1-foot wide rugged paths or travel flat, well-beaten roads. The four trails--Right, Left, Mouse Branch, and Thompson Loops--meander through mixed pine and hardwoods on a peninsula stretching into Fontana Lake. Hikers may travel the trails any day, but mountain bikers and equestrians, the primary users, are kept separated by alternating use of trails. A schedule is posted at all trailheads. There is a fee for mountain bikers. Check in at the Cheoah District Ranger Station.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Dan and Linda Sikorra who are owners of Fontana Realty seek to provide other families the enjoyment opportunities we've been allowed to experience over the years. We grew up the Midwest and spent time in Florida before moving to NC where we fell in love with Bryson City area after visiting the first time in 1994 with our 5 kids. We couldn't believe the beauty of the Lake, the Park and all the outdoor activities that were available. And to boot, we found Bryson City to be a very vibrant town with festivals going on all summer long. We bought our Fontana Lake lot in 96 and couldn't wait to make the move from Charlotte which took place in 2003.

Why Bryson City, NC, USA:
We built this Retreat with family in mind. The privacy, yet closeness to town and the beautiful Fontana Lake views made it all the more exceptional. We couldn't have picked a better location to play on the lake or have lazy days on the deck!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our eyes were opened, so when the opportunity availed itself, we moved from Charlotte NC, to be closer to the Smokies. We took every opportunity to vacation in Bryson City, a fun and vibrant town where we could enjoy all the surrounding outdoor activities. Our love for the land deepened as we hiked or ran trails through the Great Smoky Mountain National Park appreciating the beautiful wildlife and enjoying the hundreds of miles of mountain streams. When we wanted more action, we threw our mountain bikes in the boat and motored over to Tsali Recreation Area for some single track action. What a way to travel – the boat ride on Fontana Lake covers some of the most pristine lake wilderness areas in the southeast and if I was lucky enough to have another person with me we’d water ski on the way back.Our excitement and love for the area and the people who live here grow deeper over time. When one finds something very good, in order to truly enjoy it, it must be shared – and that is where we find ourselves today! Dan and Linda have five grown children and eight grandchildren.
