  • 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!"

  • Nice stay. great for dogs. Little dated. Will return.

    "I went up to beautiful Lake Nantahala for four days with my husband, son, and his friend. I wish that I would have brought my two little dogs. It is the perfect place for dogs. There is little traffic as it is nestled away on an almost private road. The location is convenient as it is close to the Lake's-End marina and restaurant. It sleeps about 12, including two sofas. The bed and bath are upstairs. The kitchen and half bath is downstairs. There is one working fireplace downstairs, and they provide the wood. We loved this. There are no decks, but there are large picture windows and a patio. It would be great if there was some vista pruning, but one can still see the lake pretty well. The place is clean but has a slight mildew odor in the upstairs area. There is no dishwasher and no wifi. Cell service was also not existent for our carrier. The neighbors oversee the place and are wonderful. They answered our questions and made sure that we had everything that we needed. They also rent their pontoon boat for a great price. It is a bit dated, but they are refurbishing it soon. It is a great deal at 165.00 per day plus paying for gas. We took the boat out and toured the entire lake. The boat owners are flexible and knowledgeable about the area. The dock is also a bit dated, but the owners are getting a new one soon. Two canoes, a flat bottom boat, a grill, all cooking utensils, etc. are included. Also, bedding, bath and beach towels are provided. This place provided a nice unplugged weekend. It was only 17 miles to Franklin, NC, where we ate at the food truck and tested samples at the Loafing Hiker Brewery, and 15 or so miles to Anderson. There is hiking everywhere. We spent most of the time pontooning and kayaking on our own kayaks. The marina rents paddle boards, kayaks, etc.. We will return."

  • Relaxing family vacation

    "We had an awesome time this week at Brye-Haus. The pictures are accurate. The view is amazing, and the house is lovely. It was perfect for our family. The kids enjoyed the games provided in the loft, and we all enjoyed the solitude of the mountain. It's close to zip-lining, white-water rafting, and boating on lake Nantahala. The only thing missing (which could have been taken by previous renters) was lack of information once in the cabin. There's no internet or cell service (which was really nice to disconnect), but I was lucky to find the door code once we arrived. We almost had to drive 20 min back down mountain for cell service in order to access code. I should have printed out or taken a screen-shot my VRBO app with info prior to driving up mountain. It would be beneficial to renters to have check-out instructions and even more area information handy."
