About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Our lake home features a rustic mountain decor, high speed wireless internet, billiards room, 2 large covered porches in addition to a lakeside deck, fire pit, and private dock. Our two kayaks, canoe, and pontoon (included in rental during summer season) equipped with life jackets, ski ropes, and pull tubes are included with our home. By including a boat with our home you will save over $1500.00 in rental fees. We also have a 4 stroke jet ski that is available for rent during your lake vacation for an additional charge, please inquire for details.

This is our family lake home, not a sterile rental unit. It is furnished and appointed like you would expect a home to be. The beds all have pillow top mattresses with quilted comforters.

Most homes on Lake Nantahala have 75 to over 100 steps down a steep bank to the lake. Our home has a very gradual path of about 70 feet with about a dozen steps from the dock to the basement level of the house. Every summer we have guests who have stayed on the Lake somewhere else with many steps. Be sure to ask how many steps to the lake before you rent.

Our lakeside deck is the perfect place to relax and watch the children swim and roast marshmellows at night in the firepit area. Our home does have central heat and air, but because it is located at over 3000 foot of elevation you rarely need the air conditioning at night. Once you experience Lake Nantahala, vacationing on any other lake becomes out of the question.

Trout fishing in the Nantahala River is excellent all season long for fly fishing and spin casting. The Nantahala river hosted the 2011 USA National Fly Fishing Championships in May 2011. The river is located less than 10 minutes from our lake home. A North Carolina fishing license and Trout stamp is required. We can set you up with a licensed guide upon request.

Located about twenty minutes from our lake home is the Nantahala Outdoor Center voted by Good Morning America and National Geographic Adventure Magazine as the #1 family vacation spot in America for vacations with a splash. The Nantahala River hosted the 2013 World Freestyle Kayaking Championships with athletes from over 50 Countries participating. The Nantahala River also hosted a World Cup Freestyle event in 2012 as a test event for the World Championships 2013.

When planning your Nantahala vacation, be sure to include a White Water rafting trip for the whole family down the Nantahala. Then dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, The Rivers End Cafe.

Please inquire on availability of the boat toward the end of summer/fall. Boat will be available dependent on the lake levels.

Why owner/property manager chose Topton

Lake Nantahala has 3,800 surface acres and over 42 miles of shoreline, of which 97% is Nantahala National Forest. The Nantahala National Forest consists of 4 forests, the Pisgah, Nantahala, Uwharrie, and Croatan which all together make up 1.2 million acres. Nantahala National Forest consists of a hiker's paradise with over 1,300 miles of hiking trails, numerous waterfalls, more than 800 campsites, 490 picnic sites, 7 swimming beaches, 11 wilderness areas, numerous lakes, plus hundreds of miles of rivers and streams, including two nationally recognized wild and scenic rivers. Lake Nantahala has the 2nd highest surface elevation east of the Mississippi at 3,100 foot of elevation. Lake Nantahala is a beautiful area with pristine crystal clear water. Lake Nantahala is one of the top fishing lakes in the South East. Walleye, Lake Trout, Brown Trout, Bluegill, Crappie, Small Mouth and Large Mouth Bass are plentiful in the lake. March, April, and May are excellent for Walleye , Small Mouth and Brown Trout. June, July, and August are when the Bluegills are bedding. The first full moon in September heats up for fall fishing. Once you experience Lake Nantahala, vacationing on any other lake becomes out of the question.

What makes this house unique

Lake Nantahala is the most beautiful pristine in the Southeast. It is always in the top ten cleanest lakes in America. The lake is a high elevation lake with steep banks. Make sure to ask how many steps to the lake before you rent a home on Lake Nantahala . We picked our lot because it is one of only a very few on the lake that does not require dozens of steps to get to the lake.

We all loved it. The pontoon boat and jet ski were a lot of fun and the house was awesome and large enough for all! Definitely would stay again!
