Overview

About the property

Cabin, directly on the lake, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

Thanks for stopping by! Maybe this is what you're looking for: an AFFORDABLE place for your small family to escape the heat and enjoy a pristine mountain lake, a quiet and beautiful couple's Fall getaway, a place to fish, swim, explore. You've found us!

Our cottage is not fancy or huge. It's cozy, clean and right on Lake Nantahala, one of the highest and cleanest lakes in the Eastern U.S. We bought the cottage years ago as a perfect escape from the busyness of Atlanta. Now we want to share it with you.

We have no pool tables or hot tubs or wii's. We DO have a great private dock, books, videos, and a place to simply unwind without all the usual distractions of home. Swim from our private dock. (Bring your snorkle gear ... i usually see fish when I snorkle around our dock ... the water is crystal clear) Bring your boat (ramp is 2 minutes away) or rent one from Lakes End Marina (or use our canoe). Kids love our dock, the many streams to wade in, and places to hike and explore (we're practically surrounded by the Nantahala National Forest). Parents love the quiet setting, our collection of books and movies, and the fact that your cell phone won't work up here! There are great restaurants 20 minutes by car (or ride your boat across the water to Lake's End Grill), a Super Walmart in Murphy (35 minutes away) for supplies, hiking trails all around (the Appalachian Trail is 20 minutes away), whitewater rafting close by, and lots of places to wander. We are not Disney World. We are quite pleased to be 'all natural'.

Perfect getaway

My fiancé and his friends took a bachelor trip for a weekend get away! The house was everything they wanted peaceful, quiet, and plenty of fishing spots. They want to go back already. Thank you Curt!

Everything was ready when we arrived at the house and had no issues over our weekend stay. Couldn't have asked for a better location and place. Will definitely be considering returning.

A nice relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Grace Cottage. This isn't a large cabin but it is was fine for our family (2 adults + 2 kids) and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The weather was cold but the cabin was cozy and warm. The surrounding area is very beautiful. Curt was very helpful and responded quickly to our queries. Overall, a nice relaxing break.
