Topton, NC, USA

  • Minimum Stay2 - 7 nights

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'.

About Owner

I'm a writer and actor, based in Atlanta. I travel a lot. My wife and I bought this place as an escape from the road. It has been that, and more!

Owner purchased this Cabin in 2001

                                                        A nice relaxing break

                                                        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.

                                                        Couldn't of asked for a better location and house.

                                                        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.

                                                        Laura C.

                                                        Grace Cottage truly is a warm, cozy welcome. It is just what we needed not only to getaway but also explore the NW N Carolina area. It's safe, quiet, with only the lovely sounds of birds singing and breeze blowing through the trees.

                                                        We visited at the change of seasons when the mountains were aflame with reds, yellows, and oranges of the trees. The Lake Nantahala waters were clear; you could see the lake bottom along the shoreline. Every morning there was a mystical, romantic mist over the water because of the cool air temperature. So beautiful!

                                                        Thank you for a lovely stay in God's wonderful creation.

                                                        Thanks, Laura, for the kind words. I was just at the cabin today, replacing some parts on the gas grill. The leaves are spectacular and i got to experience the first snow of the season. I'm glad you got see God's handiwork. Come again! Curt C.

                                                        Great place: relaxing, quiet, beautiful.

                                                        Veronika F.

                                                        We had a great time spending a few days at the Grace Cottage and unwinding from a busy life. There are several hiking trails nearby, a beautiful lake, mountain views. The nearby area is very quiet: only sounds of nature and falling autumn leaves. There are plenty of board games in the house along with all basic necessities. I would highly recommend the Grace Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet charming time.
