    Discover beautiful Lake Santeetlah

    Set amid the soaring mountains of North Carolina, Lake Santeetlah offers the perfect setting for a Graham County getaway. Travelers come here to fish for crappie and lake trout, and to explore the miles of picturesque trails that wind through the surrounding Cheoah District. What they relish most, though, is the chance to get off the beaten track for a while and soak up the beautiful natural landscape with family and friends. Lake Santeetlah vacation rentals are mostly situated in the town of the same name, although rentals can also be found dotted around the lake.

    Make a splash in Lake Santeetlah

    Arguably one of North Carolina's most unspoiled lakes, Lake Santeetlah provides an idyllic background for outdoor adventure. Pontoons and deck boats can be rented from Santeetlah Marina, perfect if you're seeking a quiet spot for fishing. Kayaks are also on offer if you're keen to explore the nooks and crannies along the lake's pretty shoreline. In the Nantahala National Forest, a sprawling expanse of greenery that hugs around 80 percent of the lake's banks, a short hike from Tapoco Road rewards you with the chance to swim underneath the cascading Yellow Creek Falls.

    Find culture and family fun near Lake Santeetlah

    The nearby town of Robbinsville, just a 15-minute drive from most Lake Santeetlah vacation rentals, offers a variety of historical attractions for culturally-minded travelers, including the Old Mother Church and the Junaluska Memorial Site and Museum, the latter the burial site for a former Cherokee leader. If you're traveling with kids, a trip to the Wherloom Honey Bee Farm is a must. Visitors to this popular family-friendly spot can enjoy a tour of the farm, watching a colony of honeybees hard at work, and feast on raw honey expertly blended with the likes of vanilla bean and orange blossom.

    Lake Santeetlah has something for every season

    Summer is undoubtedly the most popular season to stay in a Lake Santeetlah vacation rental, as temperatures can easily top 80 degrees and the air is filled with the sound of folk and bluegrass artists performing at the Appalachian Summer Music Series. That's not to say the rest of the year should be ruled out, though. Those opting for a stay in early fall will often catch a glimpse of colorful Monarch butterflies pausing for a while on their annual migration to Mexico, while winter travelers will find all manner of adventure up in the snow-covered mountains.

    Explore lush forest near Lake Santeetlah

    The national forest surrounding the lake has plenty to offer nature lovers, not least the panoramic mountain views from the Santeetlah Overlook along the Cherohala Skyway, and the chance to hike to the Appalachian summit of Lone Bald, the forest's highest point. If you prefer to take things a little easier, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest to the west of Lake Santeetlah is an inviting space to enjoy a gentle stroll among some of the oldest trees in the eastern United States, many of which tower proudly over 100-feet from the fern-covered forest floor.
