  • 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!"

  • Beautiful Lakefront Home

    "Our family just returned from staying a week at this gorgeous home. The home itself was spacious and gorgeously decorated. The kitchen was stocked with spices and every cooking utensil imaginable (even a vegetable juicer). But we can't stop thinking about that gorgeous. pristine lake! We loved that we were able to jump off the dock into the lake. We spent many hours on the lake itself, enjoying tube rides and happy hours. The restaurant on the lake has a wonderful breakfast and was so easy to get to by boat. Definitely worth the trip to drive to Bryson City to hike and ride the tubes down the river past the waterfalls. Amazing! We will definitely come back."

  • Beautiful Lake Cabin

    "My family enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was very clean inside and had a good working shower. It is located on a very steep hillside and has a nice dock on beautiful Lake Nantahala. We enjoyed swimming and fishing off the dock and had a great time relaxing in the mountains. The owners gave great tips on activities in the area. We enjoyed whitewater rafting and zip lining at NOC which was only a short drive away. Also, we rented a boat and went tubing one day. My only reason for not giving it five stars was the steep walk down to the lake. It does not have stairs all the way down. When it rained, it was rather difficult getting back up to the cabin. Overall, it was a great getaway and we all had fun!"

  • 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."
