  • 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!"

  • Amazing Vacation!!

    "Our family of 10 had a wonderful relaxing time at the lake and it was well worth the 14 hour drive from Delaware. The house was absolutely beautiful and immaculate...the pictures did not do it justice! Never staying at a lake house before or renting online we had no idea what to expect and this was so much more than we ever expected. There was more than enough room for our large group. The kitchen was well stocked and the owners have definitely thought of everything that may be needed for kids and adults. The kids spent most of the day in the lake swimming or using the kayak and other inflatables. Nights were spent relaxing, playing board games or by the fire pit. Had a great time at NOC white water rafting.....wonderful people and guides. 1 week was not long enough..........hope to come back again and stay longer!"

  • 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."
