  • Wow

    "My husband and I arrived late at night. We were immediately impressed with the beautiful cabin, the fireplace, the size, etc. When we woke in the morning we were absolutely stunned. Little did we know that we had the most amazing view. We woke to a glistening crystal blue lake and a beautiful mountain range visiable from the bedroom window and of course the big picture windows. The wrap around deck was just perfect and we could have spent the entire vacation just enjoying the view, but we managed to tear ourselves away to enjoy some of the many activities the area has to offer. We canoed, hiked fished and did lots of sightseeing. . We only had a few days and next time hope to white water raft. As an airline employee, my husband my husband and I have access to just about anywhere a plane flies, but this was by far one of our favorite spots in the world. We look forward to our next visit. The owner, Pat, could not have been more helpful and was available round the clock. He is very organized has a great notebook full directions and suggestions which served to make navigating the area a breeze.. We highly recommend this cabin. You will not be dissapointed, I only wish there were more than five stars, as this little slice of heaven deserves ten. Thanks For all, and hope to visit Misty Laurel again. Tom and Cynthia"

  • Lovely vacation spot!

    "This is a great vacation rental! Lex was very accommodating and friendly. The location was perfect and right by the marina. The only problem we had was that we couldn't stay longer. I highly recommend this listing to anyone and plan on coming back!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"
