Our boathouse floats directly on Fontana Lake with a private boat dock, covered slip, with access to swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and other water sports. Lots of hiking trails, scenic drives, local arts and culture close by. Located within 100 feet from the Fontana Village Marina. The pristine waters surrounding the lake at Fontana Dam are nestled in between the GSMNP and Nantahala National Forest making houses on this end of the lake next to none, minimal boat traffic, along with an unspoiled and peaceful setting.
