About Family of AlpenHaus
Welcome to the AlpenHaus! Our family is happy that you’ll experience Lake Santeetlah in the same way that we love so dearly! We are a tight-knit, active family from Maryville, TN and have been coming to Santeetlah for many years. My parents lived in Germany while in the Army and we have gone back to visit their Bavarian home several times. This home continually reminded us of the views we’ve seen while over there, thus we named it AlpenHaus! Wakeboarding and waterskiing is how we have spent our summers growing up and there is simply no lake better for watersports than Santeetlah! In 2015 we decided to buy a home after staying (on VRBO) at many of the great homes on the lake. We chose to buy the house that boasts the best views on the lake! After extensive remodeling with a focus towards optimizing the space for quality family time, we are excited to open it up to you in 2016!
Family of AlpenHaus purchased this House in 2015
Why Family of AlpenHaus chose Yellow Creek
Where do we begin? Santeetlah is truly one of the last great treasures. From our home’s porches you will not see ONE other home as you peer across the lake. Instead, you will see pristine water, incredible sunrises, and National Forest! After having traveled the world as a wakeboarder, boat designer, and wakeboard coach it is safe to say that I have learned what makes a great lake. Although there are plenty of incredible places in this world, Lake Santeetlah is simply among the best mountain lakes on Earth!
What makes this House unique
This house was designed in keeping with the view it boasts. Every bedroom will offer a morning sunrise like you’ve never seen before. The outdoor deck area around the home is almost as large as the house itself. We have 13 members of our immediate family and we spend any available weekends at AlpenHaus without ever feeling crowded.

Peaceful with stunning views!
My family had a lovely, relaxing time in this house over Christmas. The view was perfect, especially the sunrise over the lake, and it was very quiet and peaceful in the winter. We had fun taking the canoe out to explore the lake. The house had everything we needed and more--we especially loved that it was decorated for the holidays! The owners were very responsive and easy to communicate with, too. Others have mentioned the stairs down to the house, which are certainly noteworthy, but for our group they weren't an issue--we were glad for the extra exercise to work off Christmas dinner. :)
Very nice place.
Great view of the lake.
Plenty of space to spread out.
Close to the Dragon for motorcycle riding.
Amazing views from this house!
AlpenHaus is positioned at a great location on Lake Santeetlah. The views are stunning! There is not a more beautiful lake anywhere in the southeast! This home had plenty of room for our extended family and lots of space for us to connect together or have some solitude. It was very clean with all the amenities we needed. The kitchen is well-stocked. The dock at the house was fabulous and the marina is nearby.
The only downside was the number of stairs you have to navigate- quite a task to carry our luggage, coolers, and food while loading and unloading! But we decided it was worth it. There is not a room in the house that does not have an AMAZING view! And there are decks on every level.
Thank you so much to this family for opening their little slice of heaven to us. Our family had an absolutely FABULOUS vacation!
Successful Bachelor Party
This was the perfect place for a low-key bachelor party for my brother! We had ten guys, brought our boat, and lucked out with weather that couldn't have been any better - high 70's, sunny, and calm. The house was great - fully furnished, clean, and slept everyone comfortably. Adam was great at communicating and made for a smooth trip. The lake itself was perfect for wakeboarding and wakesurfing... winding alone through narrow fingers. Would love to come back.
We had a wonderful relaxing family vacation!
Alpenhaus is a home that any family and friends will enjoy! The views from all of the decks are amazing! It is so peaceful! We had 12 guests in the home at a time with plenty of space for all to enjoy. We kyacked, paddled boarded, sailed, swam, floated and enjoyed pontoon boat rides. The only thing you need to be aware of is that there are lots of steps to traverse since the home is built on a hill. We highly recommend the home.
Marilyn, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you all come again! Thanks for choosing Alpenhaus!
God's majesty abounds!
Amazing stay in Alpen Haus! Our kids and grands LOVED the spaciousness of the home and the quietest we've ever stayed in. We were looking for adventure and Nantahala forest had it all! Wake boarding, hiking, swimming, kayaking, mountain biking, fly fishing, white water rafting, fishing, tubing, floating, all in 6 days! We cooked all our meals in a kitchen that supplied most basic equipment. The water was warm, days were sunny, starry nights, lake was serene, we didn't want to leave. Thank you for sharing your home with us! Our only recommendation would be for a food processor to speed up food preparation so that we can get back outside 😎
Thank you Karen and come back any time!!
