Recent Lake Santeetlah reviews

  • Cozy home away from home

    "My wife and I have visited Lake Santeetlah several times over the years. We had planned on staying on the Lake at another rental with my family the month before but were unable to go due to work. We found this rental and were pleasantly surprised it was available on such short notice. We didn't need a huge home since it was just the two of us. The size of the home was perfect for us and as another reviewer wrote the additional downstairs wing with bedroom, living room, bath and small kitchen would be perfect for another couple or small family. The air conditioner froze the 3rd day of our stay but Barbara quickly responded to us and the air was fixed by the next day! Every morning we had coffee on the porch enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. We cooked only a few nights and Barbara had all the pots pans and silverware we needed. We ate at the downstairs grill at Tapoco Lodge twice. Great atmosphere where you can watch the creek. The Greek Pizza and desserts were amazing and they offered a full bar! We rented a jet ski one day and boat another from Dayton Camp. Highly recommend this easy going family owned rental company. They gave us an extra hour for free on the boat rental! We had a wonderful stay and recommend this property to anyone looking for a property that is cozy and feels like a home away from home."

  • Wonderful Owners!

    "I had a unique experience with this property owner. I didn't stay on the property site, my non-profit was looking for a site for a family to vacation and we choose this property for our family that we were sending. I had to contact the owner to ask a few questions and she was delightful! They were so willing to help with open hearts and share their home to provide the family that we were sending a memorable experience that gave them many memories! Thank you so much!

  • Enjoy the REAL flavor of the lake!

    "It's with some hesitation that I write this review. You know how you happen upon something that you feel is a treasure, share it with others, and word spreads, then YOU suddenly have limited access to "YOUR" find? I don't want that to happen with this sweet lake house; however, it's not fair to the fantastic owners to not let others in on the secret. This was our second time staying in this lake house. Here's the deal: This is one of the older homes on the lake (we LOVE that), so it offers that wonderful campy feel. There are NO steps from your car to the back door; however, as with all the houses, there are stairs down to the lake and (NEW) dock. The front porch, overlooking the lake and mountains, has got to be one of the best. It offers a place to dine, ample seating, a gas fireplace/stove, and a great place to sleep. It's where we spent most of our time on both visits, and where we always ate when not out on the lake. The kitchen is well-stocked, though no dishwasher (typical of these lake houses) and offers a large eating area. The living room is bright with two sets of sliding glass doors looking out to the screened porch. Despite being heavily shaded, the house is bright. The heavy shade and being on the lake result in humidity in the house, but it's not anything you can't deal with. Due to the one bath situation, you'd probably want to stay here only with those with whom you're rather close. :) This is the perfect place to really get away. Cell phone reception is extremely limited, but there is wi-fi at the house. We don't know about the satellite/cable situation. We only turned on the television one evening to watch one of the movies in the collection. Restaurants are limited in the area. We preferred to cook at the house almost every night. Also, this is a "dry" county. You'll have to drive quite a way to purchase alcohol, so bring it with you. You're entrenched in nature here and on a lake, so enjoy it! The owners are truly great! Both times they got back with us immediately. We had no problems during either stay, but I feel that they would have been very responsive. And both times they welcomed our dogs. All in all, this is THE BEST deal on Lake Santeetlah. Now you're in on the secret."

  • Comfy and Convenient Stay for Our Family Vacation

    "Contacted the owner about a VERY last minute vacation rental for July 4th week. Luckily he had a last minute cancellation and it worked out wonderfully for all of us! Let me start by saying that the owner Roger is the perfect host! He was friendly, very easy to work with, and offered great tips about the area and things to do with our 10 year old son. He was super nice and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and that our vacation was enjoyable....and offered GREAT communication! The home is located on a peaceful and quiet mountain with a great "country" feel. We loved the hot tub on the covered back deck, the fire pit, the covered front porch with rockers, the homey feel, and the comfy beds. When we were planning our trip, we weren't quite sure which town we wanted to stay in and I'm happy to say Bryson City was the PERFECT location. It was VERY convenient to all of the activities we wanted to do as well as a super quick and easy ride to downtown, Cherokee, Lake Fontana, and Maggie Valley as well. We loved the easy access to everything, the comfort of the house, the stress-free booking of the place with Roger, the pet friendliness, and the quiet and peaceful surroundings. We will definitely be back! Thanks Roger for a great vacation rental!"
