Recent Lake Nantahala reviews

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 2 brothers

    "Me and my brother got together here for a few days to celebrate my 66th birthday. If you are looking for a first class place to enjoy the mountains, I doubt you'll find any better. Peace and quiet surrounds you. The view from the deck is unsurpassed and, when we were there, the trees were filled with birds, including ever present humming birds. I honestly cannot think the owner could have better appointed the cabin. There was everything we needed and really much more. The cabin was spacious and well designed, making us feel quite comfortable. We even saw a deer within 50 feet of the cabin! The owner was terrific to work with and made sure we were well satisfied with everything in the cabin. Our stay was wonderfully memorable, and we certainly plan to return!"
