Recent Lake Nantahala reviews

  • Lake Nantahala is great

    "Our family has six adults and seven kids. Finding a place to put us all in a bed is hard. My wife found this home a few years back and it is always perfect. It came with a pontoon boat and we rented two jet skies from them too. Our whole family agrees this was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. Some of us have been here before. We cooked out every night on the grill and had bonfires until late in the fire pit. The weather was great. I would guess the lake was about 80 degrees which is much warmer than we expected because it is over 3000 foot of elevation. Then views from the home are unbelievable. We recommend this to any family looking for a peaceful, fun vacation. We also went whitewater rafting one day. It was about 20 minutes from the house. Owners are great and their caretaker Stan is the man. We got a rope caught in the jet ski (our fault) and he was there in about two hours, pulled the jet ski to the ramp and fixed it. He had it back to us in three hours. That is service. We fished a few times and caught a smallmouth bass and a bunch of brim. We seen some huge trout but they would not bite. Stan said fishing is best before June and after August. We will be back next summer. We booked the week we left. Two years ago we waited too long and ended up not getting a lake house. Stan said book early all the good houses on the lake are gone by October for the following summer. The only thing we would change is adding a couple more chairs or a table in the basement. We played pool every night and needed a couple more seats or bar stools."

  • Relaxing seclusion

    "Being right on the lake, but in an alcove away from the marina/boat ramps, made it a very pleasant location. The house was mostly clean and had sufficient windows to ensure lights were only needed at night, yet had sufficient trees to prevent it from becoming an oven in the warmer part of the day. Planning your food is key, as is communication, as there are no grocers nearby (as stated by the owner...thanks) and the wifi...well, the wifi doesn't really exist. Lakes End Marina Cafe has great wifi, so not sure why the house didn't? The waterfalls nearby on the lake, which directions are left in the notebook by the owner, were a restful and beautiful spot to kayak/boat. Fishing the lake was a learning experience, but no trout/salmon this trip, only small mouth bass, perch, and blue gill...all of them fun to catch. We had no neighbors present until the last night, making it a bit of silence my family welcomed as respite from work/school. Close enough to Cherokee/Bryson City to have some alternate activities, but far enough away that the 'touristy' feel was completely non-existent. The pool/air hockey/ping pong table was a surprise in that usually this combo is a smallish version, but this was full-size ping pong and mid-size pool...very fun. Highly recommend for a peaceful visit with fun water activity (we rented a pontoon/tube and had a riot). Also recommend the owner update the wifi, as most people these days are using it for most of their activity planning and communication. Overall, we would definitely stay again! BTW, instructions say no coffee grinder and I took whole beans...YES, there IS a coffee grinder (we're coffee snobs)! And take your boat if you have one! The kayaks and canoe are nice and being able to tie off the personal boat is a real bonus."

  • Valentine’s weekend at Bear’s Lair

    "The cabin is beautiful and well kept with wonderful lake views. It was just the two of us enjoying Valentine’s weekend, but the space would accommodate 10 people easily. The downstairs is separated by a door which would be ideal if there are multiple people or families and separate entrances available into the downstairs and upstairs living area. All the bedrooms appeared comfortable though we stayed in the loft area to wake up to the wonderful view. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook. We enjoyed the hot tub and looking up into the stars. Simply said, the cabin is cozy, spacious, and well kept. The pictures are accurate but definitely still looks better in person! No cell service, but the cabin has a landline with free long distance. Internet is available and worked just fine for us. Only small difficulty we had was the hilly driveway which was snow covered from a recent snowfall and my poor Mazda3 couldn’t make the trip. The entrance driveway is shared among others who live in the area so we couldn’t ditch the car (though we thought about it). Luckily I had tire chains. However, the other cabins are at a good distance, so the cabin still feels secluded and the hot tub is not in view of any neighbors, so it just feels completely serene and private. We definitely will plan to return with friends."

  • amazing week in the mountains!

    "Hooked by the View is the best title for this house! We enjoyed our time more than we can say. No cell service for a week and limited wifi made us really disconnect and just have some fun! Hooked by the View had everything that we needed for our entire stay! We enjoyed the dock, kayaks that got us to "treasure island" many of times and any of the 3 porches for a little quiet time or watching the rain. While we were there we also went white water rafting and hiked 3 different amazing water falls! So many memories were made!!! Thank you a ton!"
