About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 bath Cabin with view/access to Fontana Lake

Newly remodeled and decorated Lazy Elk Cabin overlooks Fontana Lake with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains and the lake. It is located in a quiet, remote, scenic, and peaceful vacation escape destination in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina with water/dock access to take advantage of the lake/water activities, and fishing.

The cabin is located at the end of a 2 mile hard packed dirt/gravel one lane road. Although there is very little traffic on this road, guests are encouraged to drive slow and be prepared to safely pull over or back up slightly in the very rare event of a vehicle coming in the opposite direction.

The private dock with picnic table/umbrella, (1) double kayak, and (2) single kayaks on Fontana Lake is accessible by a 7 minute hike or use the ATV 2/3 of the way to the dock.

The dock is typically not floating from the end of September until the end of April due to TVA slowly lowering the water level after labor day and raising it again starting in March. During that time, guests can still access the water by stepping off the 60' walkway and walking down the shore bank to the water. Fontana Lake is over 200 feet deep in areas so there is always a lot of water in this 30 mile long lake.

To clarify, the cabin has a lake view and lake access but is not waterfront. Guests with mobility issues that want to access the water and are unable to navigate the remaining 1/3 hike with steps/handrail down to the dock can be picked up at Cable Cove which is 3 miles north on Hwy 28.

Very close to whitewater rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, world class mountain biking at Tsali recreation center, fishing, hiking/exploring the Great Smoky mountain national park, and touring the scenic roadways like the Tail of the Dragon (hwy 28).

The luxury cabin is 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath with stainless steel kitchen appliances, Italian granite countetops, island seating for 4, slate tiled floor, with many kitchen appliances including a coffee maker, toaster, and blender. The kitchen has cookware and dinnerware for groups up to 10 and is stocked with limited paper products/laundry supplies. The cabin has hi speed Wi-Fi, house phone with local and unlimited long distance in the US, and (4) LCD TV's with Direct TV. The cabin has central heat/air and also has fans in each bedroom and the living room. The living room has couch seating for 6 and has a instant start propane fireplace with rustic mantle. The living room has a 50' LCD TV with Direct TV package, blue ray player/Wii/games/movie library, 8' regulation size pool table with convertible ping pong/air hockey/and dining table, and dart board. The master bedroom on the main level has a king bed, 42' LCD TV with blue ray player, and a private bathroom with slate tiled floor and large 3' x 5' slate tiled shower and granite vanity. The 2nd bedroom upstairs with a small private balcony has a queen bed and a futon and has a 32' LCD with blue ray player. The 3rd bedroom has a double bed and bunk bed with 32' LCD and blue ray player. The upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom with a slate tiled shower. Outside: Large covered patio with propane grill, picnic table, 4 rockers with "Cracker Barrel" inspired checkers table, and 2 fans with lights. There is an open area below the deck overlooking the lake with a hot tub and an area with a fire pit and seating for 8.

Firewood is for sale on the front porch.
There is a 20' 2012 Sun Tracker/60 HP pontoon boat for $800/week or $225/day and 3 person Sea Doo jet ski for $500/week or $250/day. The pontoon boat and jet ski are not available to rent if the dock is not floating which is typically from mid-end September until mid-end May,

* Fontana Lake water levels vary throughout the year. The lake is slowly drawn down after labor day and continues to drop to approx 50 linear feet at lowest level during the winter months (lake depth over 200 feet in areas) and typically starts coming back up in March . The dock typically is not floating from the end of September until the end of April and rests on the shore bank. Guests can still access the water by stepping off the 60' dock walkway and and walking down the shore bank to the water. The shore bank is typically dry (unless rain) with shale/rocks.
