About the property

Gather your family and friends and come stay at our Cozy Mountain Lakefront Cabin nestled along the east shoreline of Wolf Lake in Paradise Cove, where peaceful serenity awaits you!

This cozy cabin has approximately 2,600 sq. ft. of living space, with 4 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths.

As you drive along the quaint state road that runs along the east side of Wolf Lake, you will be mesmerized by the beauty of the area and the crystal clear water of Wolf Lake on your left. Drive .8 miles and turn right up an asphalt driveway that leads to a beautiful custom built two story cabin, with wrap around decks on the first and second level. The cabin is cedar sided with stacked Tennessee field stone, and is the shape of a hexagon with beautiful views from every angle!

The main entrance leads you inside the first level to an open floor plan which includes a family room, dining room that seats eight, a free standing wood stove and rock hearth, sitting area and kitchen. The pantry, laundry room, and a half bath adjoin the open floor plan. The floors are hardwood and all the rooms on this level have tongue & grooved wood 10’ ceilings with recessed lighting. The family room has a sliding glass door that opens to the rock patio where the picnic tables are located. This area is connected by a wrap around deck that overlooks the lake and mountains. The sitting area on the opposite side of the cabin has a sliding glass door that leads out to a rock patio where you will find a Leisure Bay Spa Hot Tub with seating for 3 people and lounges for 2 more. This area also has a Weber Gas Grill.

As you walk up the carpeted stairs to the second level you walk in to a great room that has vaulted ceilings with wooden beams, a beautiful rock fireplace, breathtaking views of the lake and mountains, and two sliding glass doors that lead out to a massive wrap around deck. The walls in this great room are tongue & grooved wood and all the floors on this second level are carpeted. All four bedrooms are located on this upper level. The Master Bedroom has a king size bed, with private bath, and sliding glass door that leads out to a covered porch. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, third bedroom has a full size bed and twin bed, and fourth bedroom has an extra long twin bed. These three bedrooms share the second bath that has a standard size bath & shower.

Now let’s step outside! Take a seat in one of several rocking chairs on the wrap around decks and enjoy the tranquility of this very special place. We have a nice level big yard facing the lake with an awesome spot for bonfires! Amazing sunsets and the sky is full of stars that seem like you can just reach up and touch them!

Time to head down to the lake! Our cabin is located along the shoreline of Wolf Lake, which is 183 acres of crystal clear emerald water (Blue Jewell) that meanders between the mountains. This lake is the headwaters of the East Fork of the Tuckasegee River 3,080 feet above sea level. Forty percent of the shoreline is bordered by National Forest. In the 1950’s a dam was built to control flooding downstream and provide hydroelectric power. Wolf Lake is at the top of a stair-step system of lakes that includes Tanasee, Bear, and Cedar Cliff. The Lake tributaries are Wolf Creek, Charley’s Creek, and Long Branch.

Wolf Lake is a great place for all types of water activities. Fishing, pontoon boat cruising, water skiing, inner tube riding, knee boarding, wakeboarding, jet skiing, kayaking, canoeing, and swimming in the refreshing crystal clear therapeutic water!

The cabin comes with the use of a private boat dock, swim beach, and shaded picnic area. The boat dock has a 16’ X 16’ platform with ladder, for fishing, swimming, lounging, and boat docking. Our rates include the use of an 18’ Sun Tracker Pontoon Boat for cruising the lake, fishing, or to lounge in. You’re more than welcome to bring your own boats, jet skies, kayaks, and canoes. Across the lake is a NC Wildlife Boat Access Area with loading dock that you can use to launch your boat. Drive your boat across the lake to our private dock where you can keep the boat during your stay. We even have an area to park your trailers.

Wolf Lake is located off of Canada Road (Hwy 281) between Lake Toxaway and Tuckasegee, NC. We are eleven miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway where you can view Wolf Lake & Wolf Mountain from Overlook 424.8. We call this area “The Center of the Universe” and you can go in any direction and find great hiking, waterfalls, amazing motorcycle riding, and quaint little towns for shopping & dining. We are thirty miles from Western Carolina University and the towns of Cashiers, Brevard, Sylva, & Dillsboro.

Terrific getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is deep in the mountains, with a beautiful view of Wolf Lake. There are lots of places to hike, both very nearby and within driving distance. It's also within driving distance to Asheville and Brevard if you want to have a different sort of adventure. The house was perfect for our group of 7, with large, comfortable seating and the most well-supplied kitchen I've ever experienced in a rental. We really enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub; it was too cold to go out in the pontoon boat. Thanks for a wonderful stay with our family!

Never Fail to Have a Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

This will be my second year coming to the cabin and it only get better every time! This year we knew what to expect as far as bringing enough supplies to not need to drive into town and were able to spend the whole time at the cabin.

Was perfect weather for sitting on the dock and swimming, as well as utilizing the hot tub and fire pit. Cabin was clean and cozy, plenty of helpful instructions and suggestions for things to do. Would definitely come back again.

Couldn't ask for better......

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples travelling the US out of The UK and we wanted some relax and chill time and this we certainly got in spades.

I have never come across a cabin so well equipped, we really appreciated all the various condiments and cooking ingredients as having these gave us so much more flexibility regarding meals.

The cabin is set right next to the lake, you get great views - sitting out on either the upper or lower decks is a joy, seriously relaxing and comfortable and away from anyone else.

Everything works in this cabin and the furnishings really comfortable, the aircon is quiet and and efficient and the shower powerful and the beds comfortable and the Satellite wifi is actually very fast.

We used the boat a fair few times, easy to control and exploring the lake is both fun and relaxing.

I swam in the lake a lot, it was so much warmer than I thought it would be - I swan straight off the private jetty as it has steps down.

The owners are super helpful if you need anything, but I really doubt you will, so well equipped it is.

To conclude, there is nothing not to like here and we loved it and had a really relaxing and chilling 5 days or so, would have stayed longer if we had been able to!

Highly recommend to all.

Thanks M & J, best stopover on our trip.

The Cabin is extremely well-maintained, inside and outside. The owners are available and approachable and their priority is clearly for their guests to have an EXCELLENT stay at their home. The views are spectacular from all rooms. This property is very special. Sometimes, we could not believe that we weren't dreaming! The lake and yard are so inviting. We will definitely return!!!

Fantastic house, everything needed for a vacation was provided

  • 5 of 5

This house and location was exactly what we were looking for. The owners had everything you could think of available for a great stay. It was by far the most well prepared house of any VRBO location we've stayed in over the last 10 years. The bonus of having a pontoon boot available on such a beautiful and uncrowded lake was an added bonus. Although the location is not particularly close to any large town(a plus), there were some very good restaurants within 30 minutes driving and worth the drive.

We always appreciate owners willing to share their house with our dogs as well. It made for a great time. My only suggestion would be to increase the internet speed for kids. Will definitely come back again.

This may be it

  • 5 of 5

I am giving Mike and Joan's place five stars with a caveat. The cabin and decor, while nice and more than adequate, are not five star in my opinion; but I have stayed at more posh places that I've rated far lower. I rate on the overall experience, setting, etc and for a family trip with active, swim-safe children, this is a five star place you must visit.

This is a place to get away and spend time with those you came to spend time with. To say the pictures "don't do it justice" is over-used, but clichés are cliches for a reason--the pictures do not reflect the true nature of the place. For instance, from the photos, I had some concern that the kitchen would be too small and "dinky." Instead, it was a highlight. The place is attractive. The entire first floor has an entirely wonderful, mountainesque feel and a large raised table we used for group meals.

The upstairs that houses the three bedrooms is not to the level of decor as first floor but any drawback that may be is greatly offset by the upstairs den than gave the kids a place to congregate. With a second den, rarely is everyone in the same place with serves to "expand" the square footage.

But, we were inside only so much because there is so much to do while not inside. The girls lived in the very nice hot tub and on the spacious lawn to the side of the cabin. We made fire like a pro with clean, dry wood provided by the owners. The Weber grill made my envious. I do not steal, but i would like that grill-it makes a vacationing dad's life easy.

We chose this place because it is isolated in comparison to other spots in the area. There is no marina in the lake which means very few tourists. During week days, almost no one was on the lake and sometimes we had it all to ourselves. We also chose the place because it came with a party barge/boat. The boat ran flawlessly and the kids were pulled to exhaustion on the provided tube and rope.

The lake is beautiful and the water very clean and clear. The kids swam from the dock or beach or tortured the rope swing a short walk away. We even took the boat to the north end of the lake and hiked a perfect North Carolina stream towards the waterfall.

To follow one cliches with another, I saved the best for last-the fishing. I cannot vouch for the rest of the year, but we fried fish, made fish tacos and had several bags to take home frozen from the excellent catch of walleye and lake trout. It may take you a while to figure it out, but the lake produces
