  • Get Off the Grid!

    "Lakeside Lodge was great. The property is huge and has plenty of room for everyone to have their own space. A few updated pictures would be beneficial to this listing- the dock and hot tub are not as picture BUT the game room (pool, foosball, and theater room) were much bigger than we expected! The two master suites and the theater area (with a huge selection of movies!) were awesome extras. Our group (7 adults) enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit area. Note: there is no gazebo bar or covering on the hot tub as pictured in this listing, it is just the hot tub. The house was clean and had a well-stocked (pots, pans, tupperware, etc.) kitchen. Plenty of extra blankets, pillows, etc. There are several wonderful deck spaces- we ate outside most nights- and the propane grill was in good shape. The views are simply stunning of Lake Nantahala but there are lots of stairs! Once you go down to the dock/lake area you won't want to have make a trip up them for quite a while. Also (as of Sept 2015), the dock is not as pictured in this listing. It is at quite a slant and is not particularly comfortable for laying or lounging on. You would not be able to sit in chairs on it. There is a small dirt/sand beach you could sit on. Our group attributed some of this to a low lake level but not all of it, the dock could certainly use some work. You are off the grid. You will lose cell service 15-20 minutes before getting to the house (so don't plan on using a hotspot to get internet) and the internet available was dial up which obviously won't work with tablets or phones. This was well communicated by the owners prior to arrival but it really is off the grid! Donna was very easy to work with and provided all of the information for our weekend in a timely manner and quickly answered questions, etc. Our group would recommend Lakeside Lodge and we hope to return again!"

  • Secluded cabin with amazing views!

    "This cabin was perfect for us! It is secluded and has amazing mountain views! Everything was just as the owners described and the pictures are all up to date. What you see is what you get! The home is very well furnished, maintained, and clean. We would definitely rent this home again."

  • Amazing getaway

    "This house has so much to offer. It is like no other chalet or cabin I've ever stayed . This is a home! So much room to relax an enjoy the beautiful mountain. The gravel drive up to the house was a little scary (Motorcycles) at first but after a few times up and down it was no problem and well worth it! The owners are great people and will help with whatever you need."

  • Feels like home (away from home)!

    "We really loved our time at this cabin! The grandkids ran straight for the creek as soon as they discovered it. We traveled by motorcycle, and our daughter came with her van and the 2 grandkids (10 & 14). The road was easily accessible by motorcycle and car. We really appreciated the covered parking space for our bike. We took many day trips in the van, and my husband took the grandkids and daughter on a ride at the Tail of the Dragon (Hwy. 129). Once we were familiar with getting to the cabin, everything was easy to find. Lots of curves and hills! A biker's dream ride. Took a trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and saw a bear run across the rode at Cade's Cove, also several deer. Took at trip on Hwy. 219 South, then 74 to Wayah Road. Lots of waterfalls on the way to hike to the Wayah Bald historic rock lookout tower, which overlooked Franklin, TN. We ended the week with whitewater rafting at Nantahala Outdoor Center. What a blast! The weather did not want to cooperate for having a fire in the fire pit for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, but we did it in the rain anyway! It was kind of a running joke…let's go home and build a fire so it will rain! Memories in the making. I loved sitting on the deck and listening to the creek and watching our family have fun. We got to meet the owners of this beautiful home, as they also own the cabin next door. They brought their grandson with them, which was great for our grandson as he had someone to play with. Thank you, Anna, for the delicious cookies and taking DJ for a float down the creek with you and Mason, and then feeding him lunch! He had a great time. It gave his big sister a break, too. She even had fun playing in the creek with Mason. Everything you could want (and more) was supplied, complete with inflated inner tubes for floating in the creek. All you need is yourself, clothes, beach towels, paper goods, and food if you are eating in! I am glad this was a positive experience for us, as it is the first time we have done a VRBO. We are already thinking about coming back again in another season!"
