  • Beautiful mountain cabin

    "This property was rented for a Father's Day family getaway. The secluded location and spectacular view was perfect. The open floor plan made it easy for everyone to get together but with 4 bedrooms, everyone had their own space as well. We did not do a lot of cooking, but the kitchen seemed well stocked. The grill and marina is less that 2 miles away. It took us 25 minutes to get to the Nantahala river for some white water rafting. If you decide to go rafting, Raging Rivers Rafting Co. is a fantastic outfit. Skip and Wolf were our river guides and made our family outing one we will remember for years to come. A word of caution, the road leading to the cabin from the highway was gravel and a little steep. I did not have any trouble, but some small vehicles may. The only negative things I have to say are that the hot tub was not very clean and had a moldy smell and we could not even get to the fire pit. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Lake Nantahala area, you could not find a better place."

  • 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!"

  • Awesome Cabin

    "I just loved the layout of this cabin. And how clean and well maintained it is. It's location is central to so many opportunities such as fishing, hiking, rafting, exploring by car etc.. Some local highlites are Nantahala Outdoor Center, Wayah Bald and Trail of Tears. Not to mention the lake, rivers and streams. Donna is great to work with. She will answer your questions in a timely manner and just make the arrangements very easy. I would recommend this cabin and working with Donna and Greg for vacation rentals."

  • 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."
