About the Property

4 Bedrooms plus sleeping loft, 2 full bathrooms,1 half bathroom, Lake front.

Beautiful 10 inch Ponderosa Pine log home located on Lake Nantahala, a lake with crystal clear water and gorgeous views. Three of the four bedrooms open to decks overlooking the lake. Lake Nantahala is one of the cleanest most pristine lakes in the USA and 85% of its shoreline is owned by the US National Forest Service. This means the lake is never crowded. Included in the rental is a kayak and a boat dock.This is a great home for relaxing and enjoying the lake views. The log home features four bedrooms and a sleeping loft. Beds include 1 king, 2 queen, and four single beds. The lake views from the great room, deck, and three bedrooms are beautiful and peaceful. This is a great place to spend your vacation!
Nearby attractions include trout fishing or whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River, hiking on the Appalachian or Bartram Trails, or golf. We are about 90 minutes away from the Cherokee Indian Reservation and Casinos and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. The cabin is about 40 minutes from the new Cherokee Casino opening in 2014 in Murphy, NC.
Lake Nantahala is a true diamond in the rough! At 3000 feet above sea level, the summers are cool and comfortable. You will probably want to use a blanket for sleeping, even in the summer. It is located between Andrews and Franklin, NC in Macon County. It is about a 2 hour drive from Atlanta, Asheville, Knoxville and Chattanooga. There are plenty of things to do in the area. The Nantahala River below Nantahala Dam is a world-famous delayed harvest trout stream. Fly fishers from all over the world come to the Nantahala. Kayaking, Canoeing and Rafting are available as well. The Nantahala River was the venue for kayaking in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Nantahala Lake is known for smallmouth bass, trout, walleye and it has even been stocked with salmon! The Appalachian Trail crosses Wayah Road about 8 miles from the house. The Bartram Trail is even closer. The rafting and kayaking put-in on the Nantahala River is about 15 miles from the cabin, with the takeout point being at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, downstream.
The house has lots of room for adults and kids to spread out and enjoy. There are three TVs with Atlanta stations, high speed internet and telephone. An added benefit is that your cell phone won't work here so you can finally get some rest and relaxation!
There is a boat dock and a gentle walk down to the dock from the house. The public ramp is less than a mile from the house. Pontoon boat rentals and gas are available at Lake's End Marina which also features a nice restaurant with some good down home cooking. Here are the comments left by a recent guest:

'This cabin is utterly breathtaking. It literally was one of the most beautiful places I've been in my life. A total of eight friends came from across the country (Florida, North Carolina & Illinois) to celebrate friends-giving together as a part of an annual tradition. Everyone was surprised at the beauty and elegance of the cabin. It was clean, well-kept and tidy. Doug was readily available to contact if needed but we still felt perfectly secluded in the mountains (which is what we were looking for). The cabin is on a private and safe road which is gated. While it takes a while to get up the mountain, it is totally worth it. This cabin it perfect for a long weekend or holiday. The space is very large and spacious. There is a main floor with a master, a basement with three roomy bedrooms & a loft upstairs with two beds. Great for children, families as well as younger adults. The kitchen is fully stocked & there's a dishwasher. Full laundry downstairs as well as 2.5 bathrooms. Last but not least, the view....I honestly can't say enough about the view. The lake is gorgeous. I couldn't ask for anything more calm & relaxing then waking up, drinking a cup of coffee and sitting by the large bay window that overlooks the lake. So private and soothing. You won't regret renting this home the puzzles are great.'

Owner info

Phyllis is a retired elementary school teacher. The live in Cumming, Georgia, about two hours from the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Topton, NC, USA:
This property has been a labor of love for Doug and Phyllis. We helped design the house and we just love Lake Nantahala and the surrounding area. It is so peaceful and quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is the last house on the lake in the Nantahala Shores Subdivision, so it is secluded and has the added advantage of giving you the ability to observe wildlife and also the stars at night are incredible with no city lights to obscure your view.
