Mountain Log Home Between Ponds And Babbling Creek Minutes From Nantahala Lake
'The Ponds at Nantalaha Lake' is a 'Unique Retreat' of 3.6 beautifully landscaped acres strategically located as the hub, surrounded by a wheel of incredible activity and tourist gems. Our outdoor deck overlooks the salmon pond, continuously fed by a mountain stream, with a refreshing fountain for rustic ambiance. Walking to the middle of the property, you will enjoy the breathtaking view of another quarter acre pond situated with a lovely Smokey Mountain background. Sport fish or simply relax on a few large boulders and muse, read or watch the wildlife. The Nantalaha Stream with its many small waterfalls runs through and borders the property and continuously flows into and out of each pond (very unique!) Open up the master bedroom doors to the lanai and sleep to the peaceful sounds of gently flowing water. The pristine Lake Nantahala is less than a ten minute drive to the public boat launch. Bring your motorcycles, boat and RV too - we have outbuildings to protect your special vacation vehicles, with electric and septic hook-ups. After a day of activity come back to the cabin for a meal cooked on our gas or charcoal grills. Parents relax in the hot tub, children play badminton, volleyball, horseshoes, or croquet, and pets move freely from the outdoor deck to the large fenced backyard. The entire family can retire to the 'fire-pit' by the stream to enjoy roasting marshmallows, story telling and singing, or come inside to the pool and game tables.
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 eight 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, with both a queen and a trundle day bed. 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 less than 10 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, Tail of the Dragon) 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!

About Camillo Iacoboni
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.
Camillo Iacoboni purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Camillo Iacoboni chose Andrews
The location was chosen to provide guests with all the mountains have to offer; “Exquisite Mountain Beauty”, lake activities, open land for games and family fun, fishing and hiking, large fenced yard for pets, and the unique stream-fed 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. You do not need any special vehicle to drive right into our large garage from the main road, but you can bring your motorcycles, boat and/or RV too!

The cabin and grounds were beautiful and relaxing.
Great cabin and in a terrific location for day hikes and day trips. Owners are the best!!!
Awesome location to lake Nantahala
We had a great stay on our boys fishing weekend. The cabin had everything we needed and the driveway and garage was awesome for our boats. I hope to stay here again soon.
Mountain Getaway at its best
My wife, our two dogs and I spent 5 days at this beautiful cabin. The property was absolutely beautiful, with a large fenced in area for the dogs, and two locations for nightly fires. The house has every luxuary and plenty of room for at eight people. House borders the Nantahala National Forest, so we started every morning with long hikes through the forest and never came across another soul. Andrews is well located, as we took day trips to Asheville, Gatlinburg, and Cherokee. The fall colors were everything they are cracked up to.
I can’t recommend this property enough, we will definitely be renting here again in the future.
Fall Break 2017
This place was absolutely perfect for us!

Beautiful home, mountain scenery was awesome. Townspeople were nice and the owners are great people! If you like to drive around and explore, we drove to Georgia and Tennessee same day, not far from either. Alot of boating, rafting, paddle boating, there's even a casino about 15 minutes from the cabin. We visited local markets and restaurants! Highly recommend to all. Thank you Camillo and Toni, we hope to be back soon!
Beautiful and relaxing vacation!
We spent a week at the height of the summer, and could not have asked for more pleasant accommodations! Plenty of room in the house, a deck, a screened porch and ample room to roam outside. The area has lots of activities available: rafting, zip-lining, fishing. We spent time in Cherokee and at Nantahala Lake, but I confess, I was happiest on the porch with a cup of tea just watching the hummingbirds and listening to the stream! This was a perfect spot for just resting and resetting. I will mention -- as with most mountain areas in NC, cell reception is practically non-existant. Wi-fi was spotty, but with 3 young adults in tow, I actually counted that as a bonus! I highly recommend this beautiful place for a family vacation/retreat!
The best of both worlds! Relax in your own beautiful yard with mountain fed ponds and creek. Take the kayaks from the garage to beautiful Nantahala Lake in 10 minutes (Big Choga, the entrance road to the lake, is only 0.6 miles away). Quickly drive to Nantahala Gorge for hiking or water sports. And so much more...
