Property description

Waggin' Tales Lodge is my dream, and I'm excited to share it with you. The views from the over 1000sq/ft of covered porches and decks are the best the lake has to offer. Rustic Elegance is what I was going for, and the peace and serenity that you will enjoy is exceptional. The screened porch is attached to the lodge, and you can enjoy the view while taking in a roaring fire in the outdoor fireplace—call it your place to get away from it all. Everything was designed to make you feel at home, including the custom kitchen with commercial gas range and copper sink.

The cabin was finished on December 23, 2007—and is named in honor of my three dogs...now you know where the name came from! Local craftsmen from the area made everything from the cabinets to the unique railings that don’t block the view. Their commitment to quality is seen throughout.

Over 1,000 sq/ft of porches and decks (80% covered)

Lake Nantahala is one of the highest elevation lakes east of the Mississippi River. At an elevation of 3100’, the lake covers over 1600 acres, and with 80% of its 29 miles of shoreline being national forest, you are sure to enjoy nature at its best. Beautiful and un-crowded, Lake Nantahala is ideal for boating, fishing, skiing, and canoeing.

Your stay will certainly be one that is ‘out of the ordinary’. The Nantahala Gorge offers first class white water rafting and paddling, fly fishing, and a multitude of other activities.

What to do.....
Hiking—The Bartram Trail is located about 1 mile from the cabin—it hooks up with the Appalachian Trail at Wayah Bald
Biking—TSALI is the Southeast’s Mecca for mountain bikers
Fishing—Lake Nantahala is the only lake east of the Mississippi that has fresh water salmon, and let’s not forget we are ranked in the Top 50 for fly fishing in the country!
Boating—get out on the lake and enjoy the waterfalls and other surprises
Whitewater Rafting—something the whole family can enjoy together
Gem Mining
Horseback Riding
Great Smokey Mountain Railroad—make it a tradition
Biltmore House & Gardens is a short drive away in Asheville
Snow Skiing! Cataloochee Ski area in Maggie Valley is 61 miles away!
In the Area
Nantahala National Forest & Gorge
Great Smokey Mountains National park
Fly Fishing—over 2000 miles of streams & rivers
Appalachian Trail ,Bartram Trail
Horseback riding
Mountain Biking—TSALI is considered by many the East’s best single track for biking and horseback riding
Whitewater rafting, kayaking, & canoeing
Cherokee Casino
John C Campbell Folk School
Four wonderful, moderate & distinct seasons

It’s no wonder National Geographic’s Adventure Magazine & ABC’s Good Morning America awarded this area the “Number One Vacation with a Splash” in the U.S.
Whatever you are in the mood for, the area around Three Bear Lodge can accommodate. Your stay can include an array of family friendly activities—from the Bartram Trail located a mere mile away, to world class whitewater rafting and mountain biking—your ‘fun meter’ will be pegged!

I'm sure you can tell I am excited about my cabin, and I look forward to sharing it with you!

Unwind a bit,

Darren & Carmen

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I've been coming up to this area for 14 years and simply fell in love with the mountains - it simply amazes me. Fly fishing, boating, whitewater rafting, hiking the AT, and enjoying friends…can there be anything better than that!

Why the Owner Chose Topton, NC, USA:
This was a lifelong dream and I was fortunate to be able to find the property, design the cabin, and actually do some of the work myself. The tile work, hardwood floors, stone, and painting and staining were all done by me and my friends.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The 3 Bear just makes people happy - try it and see for yourself!
