About the Property
Mountain Log Home Between Ponds And Babbling Creek Minutes From Nantahala Lake
Our authentic log home is modest and decorated in keeping with the simple mountain life, yet with all the modern conveniences of home. It sleeps up to nine people, but can be a real retreat for one or two couples. Master 1 is a large bedroom with a queen electric bed. This room is decorated in traditional mountain decor and opens to the lanai for the experience of outdoor sleeping, yet in the safety and comfort of the home. It has a cedar closet, computer area, satellite TV and shares a full bath with the main floor. Master 2 provides old world charm in the tradition of a cottage. It too has a full bath and satellite TV. In addition to the formal bedrooms, the large entertainment area on the lower level has another trundle day bed and one queen futon. This area also has a kitchenette, private full bathroom and private stone deck with a hot tub. This entertainment area is perfect for children, or another independent family arrangement!
The gas fireplace, leather furniture and open ceiling make the living room a quaint place for relaxation, watching satellite TV, reading or quiet conversation. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need: all modern appliances and some extras for the gourmet cook. There is a small eating area in the cabin, a large deck for eating and entertainment, and another large table on the lanai for meals or craft activities.
'The Ponds at Nantahala Lake' is mountain-close to all major attractions. Looking to the North, South East and West of us, you will find all major attractions conveniently located. We are 5 minutes to the pristine Nantahala Lake, and within 15-30 minutes to Nantahala Gorge and Outdoor Center, with other lakes (Santeetlah, Fontana, Chatuga), towns (Murphy, Franklin, Bryson City) and attractions (Cherohala Skyway, John Campbell Folk Arts School) and much more nearby. The locals say we are 'two hours from Anywhere': Atlanta GA, Ashville NC. Charlotte NC, Knoxville TN, and Gatlinburg TN. We are truly blessed to be in the middle of no-where, yet so close to everything that means so much to the people who live here and the tourists that visit. We heartily invite you to share our lovely home, our community of open and trusting folk, and one of the most beautiful places on this planet!

We are a smoke free / drug free zone! There is NO smoking of any kind allowed in the cabin or around our property. We strictly enforce this policy, and non-compliance could result in eviction (with forfeiture of remaining paid stay). Offenders will also be held responsible for damages that may include, but are not limited to, lost rents (if a subsequent guest needs to be refunded because of smoke smell or evidence) and additional cleaning and maintenance charges. ...moreless
Pets are allowed when handled responsibly. This is our future retirement home, and we regularly bring our pets and have fenced the large back yard for our dogs. They have access up the steps to the porch that overlooks the upper pond (with the fountain and pet trout). We do not prohibit pets from being inside the house, but our guests accept responsibility to return the property in the condition it was provided to them other than normal cleaning, and agree that any damage (including any related to pets) will be remedied at their expense...moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We searched long and hard throughout the Smokey Mountains region for the 'place of our dreams' for our own retirement, and were thrilled to purchase this unique estate in the summer of 2013.
Why the Owner Chose Andrews, NC, USA:
The location was strategically chosen to provide its guests with all that the mountains have to offer; “Exquisite Mountain Beauty”, Lake Activities, Stream Wonderment, Open Land For Games and Family Fun, and The Ponds for Relaxation. It is convenient to the best local attractions, and a short distance to many tri-state and national tourist sites. “The Ponds At Nantalaha Lake” is situated on 3.6 exquisite acres with one quarter acre pond, two smaller fish ponds with a large fountain, two streams and water falls, bordering state forest, and 10 minutes to the lake. Bring your boat and/or RV too!
