Gorgeous setting, lovely lake cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to this lakeside cabin. The location was peaceful and just the right combination of remote and accessible. The lake was pretty busy since we were there across the eclipse (and had a fantastic view of the totality from the back deck - no need to brave crowds for a perfect view), but it settled down during the week, allowing for dockside fishing and so forth. We had most of our meals on the back deck and made good use of the grill provided and were fortunate enough to be able to get a couple of bell peppers and a handful of cherry tomatoes from the small garden.

There was a steady stream of vistation by hummingbirds to the feeders, and hubby and daughter saw a long-tailed weasel on the drive up to the cabin (they'd gone to town without me), so that was really neat.

I wish we'd known beforehand the extent of the steps to get to/from the dock, and the external access for the laundry room was also a surprise (we ought to have brought a laundry basket), but otherwise, the cabin was great.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful lakeside getaway with us.

The perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin seemed newly renovated. Clean all the way through. Plenty of windows to open to feel the nice cool air. The bed was confortable. Plenty of room. A few too many stairs to the lake for my liking but tolerable. We had access to a nice kayak and a canoe which was nice. The most beautiful and clean lake I have ever seen. It was lovely to sit on the dock in the evening and enjoy to uncrowded lake. A vacation we will never forget.

Great little lakefront cabin

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here and had a wonderful time. Oddly enough, a lot of that was down to the fact that John and Cyndy have the TV hidden away inside a cabinet. Our kids (ages 6 and 9) couldn't find it when we first arrived, and forgot about it completely after a few minutes. So they spent the rest of the vacation enjoying family time and the great outdoors, and playing nicely with each other instead of fighting over the remote control. It was wonderful. The cabin was the perfect size for a family of four with two small kids. Very nicely appointed and super clean in and out. Lake access is a little tricky with a long stairway down to the dock, but the exercise was good and being a little higher up on the hillside made the view from the cabin even more spectacular.

Wonder place for family vacation. Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

Made the trip to the cabin for family NYE vacation and it was exactly what we were hoping for. There were three of us, including a 5 year old, and we were entertained the entire time. Beautiful, peaceful cabin with amazing view of both mountains and Lake Nantahala. Had all the amenities and extras we needed for our stay, including a large deck overlooking lake, fireplace, and outdoor grill. We spent some time exploring the area while there, but had the most fun relaxing in the cabin and always looked forward to getting back there. Appreciated the extra amenities of WIFI and firewood on site.

Owners were especially great to work with, very responsive and accommodating to all our questions.

Our only regret was that we could not stay longer. We are hoping to return to during the summer to experience some water activities.

Overall, we highly recommend this the cabin and it will definitely be our first choice when returning to the area.
