Come to this beautiful, romantic mountain retreat right on crystal clear Nanatahala Lake. You will find yourself high in the treetops, watching the pines swaying in the wind, the Sourwood leaves turning red, and the lake below sparkling with sun. In winter, the mountain tops across the lake will shimmer with frost.
Take a video tour! Look for "Links to more information" just above the photo section.
This is a perfect romantic get-a-way. Wake in the morning to the sun coming over the mountains shining across the lake. In fall, reds and yellows against the dark green on the mountainsides or right outside the window engulf you with the wonder of fall. In summer, be engulfed by Appalachian lushness. And take a short drive to take a short or long hike on the beautiful Appalachian Trail (including a scenic fire tower look-out). Sometimes the Smokey Mountain mist creates shining wonders before your eyes. Cook your favorite gourmet meals in our kitchen in full view of the lake. Basking in the dappled sun on the deck is always wonderful.
At night, build a fire and sink into comfort with a glass of wine or your favorite tea while moonlight plays on the mountains across the lake. Try some candlelight while soaking in our large comfortable oval tub. Or relax in our cozy private spa on the lower deck and watch the stars.
Take a swim in the clear waters below. Use our canoe or two kayaks or launch your own boat nearby and tie up at our dock. Spend evenings on the dock, gazing at the stars in the clear mountain air. Feel the gratitude of just being alive.
Stroll down our scenic, peaceful neighborhood lane, take a loop hike through the woods on primative roads or take the nearby hikes on the Appalachian Trail to a great look-out or Wayha, Wesser or Siler Balds. Watch the birds, try your luck in the nearby award-winning trout stream or look for rare fresh water salmon across the lake or just fish right off the dock. Explore one of the many bike routes or visit the famous Nantahala Outdoor Center for rafting, kayaking, biking and delicious food.
Smokey Mountain National Park invites you just an hour away, or you can visit the famous Biltmore House in Asheville. Take a scenic ride on the historic railway or try panning for gems. Do you like music? Vist Dolly Partan's village or attend free Friday night concerts at John Campbell Folk School, or the great bands playing riverside at NOC. On the other hand, just sitting on the deck in the tree tops gazing at the lake might be just the peace and solitude you need.
Come treat yourself and let us welcome you to our home. We think there is no place more beautiful! We hope you will agree.
In winter the boats can still be used from the beach and sun shines brightly through the leafless trees and reflects up from the lake through the many windows. At night build a warm fire or just enjoy games with family. Outside, all is quiet.

About the owner: We are two retired college community college teachers from Wisconsin. We love to travel the world, enjoy participating in active sports like hiking, kayaking, sailing, and skiing. But also love reading, eating good food and just sitting peacefully admiring nature.
Why the Owner Chose Topton, NC, USA:
We fell in love with this lot with huge tall trees on a beautiful, pristine lake. We designed the house ourselves with lots of windows to be open to nature. We try to stay there whenever we can, but also like to share it with guests, even if we don't know them personally. So you are most welcome.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is a wilderness experience, high in the mountains, every room with a view of the gorgeous lake, and a unique chance to be in the branches of tall pines - but with all the luxury of home. We used to love camping in spots like this. Now we can enjoy comfortable beds, a modern kitchen and even a hot tub after a swim in the exceptionally clear lake. All in all . . this is heaven.
