About the Property

5 Bedroom / 4 Bathroom Sleeps 16

Lazy Bear Lodge, a newly built luxury lakefront cabin is nestled in the NC Mountains (at over 3000 foot of elevation) & embedded within the primitive Nantahala National Forest on the cleanest, most pristine lake east of the Rockies, Lake Nantahala. Over 4000 sq. ft. of living space, plus two levels of covered decks allows for making memories on a perfect family vacation, reunion, or even a retreat. Sleep peacefully in one of 4 bedrooms (4 bath), a 6 person bunk room or in the loft with up to 16 of your favorite people! Awaken to wilderness sounds, talk a morning stroll onto the private 26 X 20 dock or retreat to the screened porch. Be embraced by the enveloping Smokey Mountains as you wind down your evening by the fire pit, have dinner in the screened in porch or family time in the media room. A bar, shuffle board, & 60 inch movie screen awaits you! Two washer dryers are available for large groups and a double oven to accommodate large events. An actual front yard (rare in these parts) allows for outdoor games or children's play. A picnic table can be enjoyed on the covered deck and the incline to the lake is unusually non-strenuous for this area. The Are there hikers in your crew? The Appalachian Trail is a mile hike from our front door and that is only the beginning of what you may experience in the surrounding area
Lake Nantahala is conveniently located a 2.5 hour drive from Atlanta, & 2 hours from Chattanooga, Asheville, and Knoxville. Knoxville Airport is closest, however the drive is windy unless you drive through Chattanooga.
Hiking, biking, great fishing in lake or rivers, boating, whitewater rafting, tubing, antique shopping, snow skiing or water skiing are only some of the activities to enjoy...the possibilities are endless .....We are 40 minutes away from the new Casino in Murphy, NC.
