About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Once you enter the private gated community and find your way down to the lakefront home, you may never want to leave!

Enjoy the beauty of Lake Nantahala and surrounding mountains from your own private large deck, GENTLY sloping backyard, or private dock. Incredible lake views (water’s edge merely 50 feet away) majestic mountain views, and breathtaking sunsets!

The perfect place to relax with nature or enjoy a variety of activities. Boat, fish, ski and swim right from your own private dock or enjoy outstanding whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, hiking or mountain biking nearby. Boat rentals are available at a nearby marina, or you may wish to bring your own 'toys', launch at the nearby boat ramp directly by the neighborhood gates, and tie them to your private dock! (Easy access!)

Complimentary Kayaks are available to explore the shoreline, the river, waterfalls or the secret island just across the way complete with a tree rope swing.

This home features an open plan with warm surroundings and equipped with all you will need. In the evenings, enjoy the furnishings by a wood burning stove fireplace, or deck fire-pit, watch the sunset or a movie, play various games (including table tennis) or simply enjoy the serenity of the night.

Then, retire in one of the lovely, comfortable accommodations available: choose from either the master bedroom with a King size bed, the second bedroom with a Queen size bed, the third bedroom with two Twin beds or the loft with a Double futon and lots of space for more. Whatever you choose, you’ll be sure to get rested for the next day’s adventures.

You will discover something special here, and you would expect to pay much more! We invite you to visit and enjoy, as we are certain you’ll want to return! Perhaps in the fall, as the leaves change, or in the winter to enjoy a fresh coat of glistening snow.

Perfect Place! Right ON the lake with incredible lake and mountain views.

Perfect Place! Right on the lake with incredible lake and mountain views, not blocked by trees. Clean, neat and everything we needed for the whole family. The kids loved the loft area and mom & dad loved the deck. Coming back!

Beautiful property in beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend! Everything we needed or could have wanted was provided. The home is well stocked, with some lovely extra touches. We have never seen a cleaner vacation rental. Clearly the owners take pride in what they offer. We would love to return at some point! Thank you!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We came to the lake house for fall break and had a great time. The house has a great layout with plenty of room. The decks and views are wonderful. There is plenty to do in the area we went to wayah bald, saw waterfalls, kayaked, fished from the dock and checked out the nantahala river. We will be back.

Wonderful house in great location. House was very clean and exactly as described, the views from house were beautiful.. We really enjoyed the private dock and being able to sit on the deck of the house and see the dock. Will definitely be back to enjoy this house and Lake Nantahala again.

40th anniversary

  • 5 of 5

We decided to rent this home. We had 5 adults and 5 children (age 2 to 11). The owners could not have treated us any better. We had told them we were going to do a lot of grilling and there was a brand new grill when we arrived. The loft we thought would have a futon in it but it also had two single beds, much to the delight of our three granddaughters. As on many lake homes there were many steps (40 from the garage to the house) and steps from the house to the dock, but the steps got easier each time we used them. The home was spacious and the views were spectacular! The lake was very clean and calm and not a large amount of boat traffic. Our daughter was able to practice wake boarding and the owners had two kayaks that we used the entire time! We rented a pontoon that was delivered to our dock. I rented this house because I needed the ladder at the end of the pier so that I could get out of the water. We enjoyed the ping pong table and the large deck. There is a bat house so we watched bats, ducks, squirrels and fish (you could see them from the pier). I feel so blessed that we ended up with this house because it was so peaceful and relaxing. If you have a hammock bring it! Some of the things we did, water rafting, zip lining, hiking, jet skiing, kayaking and tubing. There is a kid zone for zip lining (starts at age 4). Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation at your beautiful home. Hope we can come again next year.

Our third stay at this wonderful lake home

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this home for the third time this year for our "summer vacation on the lake." We chose to return again this year to this getaway for several reasons:

1) The Lake - The dock is about 50 feet from the home. We rented a ski boat at Lake End Marina for the week and left it tied at the dock. From there we skied, tubed, fished, cruised, "commuted" to lunch at the restaurant at the marina, visited the waterfall, and overall just enjoyed the lake. Boat traffic on the Lake is minimal. I think in the week we were there, we never saw more than a few boats at any one time out on the lake with us.

2) The home - The home is well kept, spotlessly clean, and comfortably decorated. The kitchen is well stocked. We chose to prepare a few meals there and ate several times on the deck overlooking the lake. There is no way to capture the beauty of the area in pictures. The vista is ever-changing as the clouds pass by the mountains. One could spend hours one the deck just enjoying the scenery.

3) Responsiveness of the owners - Let's face it, renting long distance always involves some "risk." In this case and again for the third year, EVERYTHING was as advertised--and in several areas better than depicted in the VRBO write-up. In the three years we've rented here, only once did we need help from the owners. In that case the previous renters had left the LP gas grill valve open and drained the grill tank. I sent an email to the owner from the WiFi enabled home that evening. I got an apologetic call back from the owner within an hour, and the next morning at 8AM their local handyman showed up and installed a new bottle of LP gas. Now that's responsiveness!

Bottom line: We'll be back. What better endorsement is there than that?
