Come and enjoy the peace and quiet of pristine Lake Nantahala in this beautiful lake front home. 2 Stand Up paddleboards and 2 kayaks! 3 bedrooms with king beds and one bedroom with 2 full-sized bunks supply the accommodations for a terrific family vacation. There is also a pool table and many water toys. Rent a boat for the week (or the day) at the local marina (ask for details)- dock it at our large, private dock. Sit around the fire pit in the evenings with your family for a memory filled trip.
Plan your wedding at the beautiful wedding venue that is walkable from the house!
You can go to the Lake's End Grill (seasonal) which serves 3 meals a day and has a fire pit in the back overlooking the water or have a pizza delivered right to our dock!!
On the days you may prefer to be indoors, there is a theater room and a game room with a pool table and separate kitchen. 2 large covered porches and rocking chairs give you the peace and serenity that you are looking for in a lake vacation. There is also a large picnic table with an umbrella and a deck just steps from the water and the private dock.
This house is a home, not a sterile rental unit. We want you to feel comfortable in it, so it is furnished and appointed like you would expect a home to be. The beds all have pillow top mattresses with 400 thread count sheets, and the kitchen is fully stocked.
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 from the dock to the house. We have guests who have stayed elsewhere with many steps to the lake and we always get comments as to what a relief this house is. Be sure to ask how many steps there are to the lake before you rent.
Our lakeside deck is the perfect place to relax, eat dinner, watch the children swim, and roast marshmallows at night in the fire pit area. Our home has central heat and air, but because it is located at over 3000 feet of elevation you rarely need the air conditioning. Once you experience Lake Nantahala, vacationing on any other lake becomes out of the question.
Bring your fishing gear and fish the lake or fly fish on the Nantahala River. The river hosted the 2011 USA National Fly Fishing Championships. The river is located less than 15 minutes from our home. A North Carolina fishing license and trout stamp is required, which you can get online or nearby at Bryant’s Bait & Tackle Shop.
Excellent class II-III whitewater rafting is located about twenty-five minutes from our home at the Nantahala Outdoor Center - voted by Good Morning America and National Geographic Adventure Magazine as the #1 family vacation spot in America. There is also some amazing ziplining - including a 1/2 mile zipline through the beautiful Nantahala gorge!
The Nantahala River hosted the 2013 World Freestyle Kayaking Championships with athletes from over 50 Countries participating. The Rivers End Café is located there, where you can sit on the river’s edge and watch the kayakers and rafters and enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. (seasonal)
There are many treasures to find on the lake, including the rope swing and a short hike to a hidden waterfall. You will love this beautiful, clean lake!
