READ OUR REVIEWS... 'We have stayed in rentals all over the country and this place rates as #1 in our book. The house is everything it advertises and the lake is truly magnificent!' Guest comment, August, 2010.

Nestled in the woods of the gated community of Nantahala Highlands, this magnificent, lakeshore, custom home has 3800 (plus or minus) square feet with 1500 plus square feet of covered deck, four and a half bathrooms, two great rooms, two fireplaces, as well as three bedrooms plus a bunkroom and loft.

The home's extensive decking gives optimum views of Lake Nantahala and the mountains from every room. A gradual terrain walkway leads to the 123 feet of shoreline, sand beach and the floating boat/swim dock. Canoes, paddles, elec. motor and life vests provided.

The natural beauty and peacefulness of the property are unsurpassed. Nantahala is an outdoorsman’s paradise with whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, camping, mountain hiking, and biking. Aquone is just two and a half hours from downtown Atlanta; one hour from Highlands, North Carolina; and one and a half hours from Asheville, North Carolina.

This is the perfect place to relax and unwind while you escape the hustle and demands of the big city, yet conveniently located in Western North Carolina and within driving distance to most cities in the Southeast. Ski boat rental available for additional charge.

Beautiful and reclusive

  • 5 of 5

We were not there in the warm months to enjoy the lake except by looking at its beauty. But the property and its location in the Nantahala Mountains was PERFECT for what we needed. We wanted a retreat for us and our college-aged kids so we could enjoy one another's company in the setting of the lake and mountains. The property was spacious, clean and had all the essentials. Yet far enough away that we felt like we could rest and pull-back. FANTASTIC PLACE in a FANTASTIC LOCATION!

Nice stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several spots on the lake. This is the best view yet. Access to the lake is by far the best yet. It is a super nice house also. Plenty of room for my family of seven. The only downer is the driveway access. But, we hope to return there in the future. If we do It would be the first house we have stayed in twice over the many years we have vacationed in the area.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! I agree with your thoughts on the on the lake. Please come back to visit again. Thanks for putting up with the steep driveway, being in the mountains sometimes calls for a steep driveway to get the house in just the right place on the lot.

Owner's Response: Oh my, the shooting stars! I'm so glad to hear you saw them. We go out in the boat at night sometimes to see them on clear nights. With no city lights nowhere near it easy to see everything in the night sky. Come back again soon!
