About the Property

Real Log Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-9)

This beautiful luxury log home has new furnishings throughout. Everything in this home is upgraded from the kitchen to the game room.

Tremendous views of Lake Nantahala and the Smoky Mountains from the two large decks. 30' ceilings on the second floor with wide open views from the family room and the kitchen. Relax by one of the two fireplaces. One wood burning in the living room and gas log fireplace in the master bedroom. One bedroom and one bath on the upper floor and three bedrooms and one bath on the bottom floor. Large TV and gameroom. This real log home is truly a neat place to vacation and just relax.

Our cabin is located about a quarter mile off of Wayah Rd which borders Lake Nantahala . (135 Ridge Top drive, Topton, NC) The roads are all paved to within a quarter mile of the cabin. The drive off Wayah Rd is gravel and has only one turn. This area is quiet, and very private. There are only a couple of cabins above us on the mountain. I have seen kids swimming off the dock. The lake never seems crowded. Usually only a couple of boats in view. Lakes End Cafe/Marina rents is about a mile from the cabin.

The cabin is about 1 1/2 hours from Asheville and 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta. The beds are all full size with one being a bunk bed with a twin size over top. Total sleeping is for 9.

The boat ramp on the lake is about a quarter mile from the neighborhood. It has a dock and you can swim, ski, fish, etc. The entrance to the boating area is about 100 yards east of our gravel drive. This is at 3,200 feet, so the water is always an emerald green color. The lake also has salmon. (only one on the east coast) I have not fished there yet, but I see bass boats and pontoon boats on the lake. The lake flows into Nantahala Gorge which has a lot of fly fishermen. The Nantahala Outdoor Center is less than a half hour away and you can enjoy rafting in the summer, dining and mountain biking there. The Great Smokey Mountain Railway is less than an hour away in Bryson City. The Lakes End Marina rents boats, call 828-321-3001 Lakes End Marina is about a mile away. Also Jeff at Nantahala Marine rents boats and will actually bring them to the dock and meet you which really makes it east to drive down, park, and take off for boating. 321-828-BOAT
Nantahala is the South's only lake with freshwater Salmon

Kokanee Salmon are the landlocked version of the Pacific Sockeye salmon. Stocked in Nantahala Lake in the early 1960's as forage for the predator population of Walleye, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, the salmon have been naturally reproducing ever since. The average Kokanee Salmon across the country is 12" with a few lakes producing larger fish. Nantahala is one of those lakes. The average salmon in Nantahala is 18" with many fish over 20".

We sleep 9 comfortably and the place is turn-key. There are 4 bedrooms. One bedroom has a bunk bed with a double on the bottom, and a single on top. All you need to bring is food.

Please see our website and select the Gallery for more pictures of the cabin, bedrooms, and surrounding area. There is also and Activities link for things to do in the area. (hiking, biking, rafting, etc) It is beautiful, you won’t be disappointed.
