  • Rare mountain top lodging with beautiful vistas

    "Water Rock is that exceptional place in our country that speaks of extreme solitude and peace. Most anywhere in the yard shows another lovely view. The yard itself has been whittled out of the earth with stepping stones, and tunnels through rhododendron. There are even pear trees. The house is comfortable and also has gorgeous mountain views. My two sons and my best friend were there in August 2016 for my wedding anniversary celebration. My husband passed away in November 2015, and to be on the same mountain that we have spent so many anniversaries together was very special to me. My son hiked to Black Rock and sprinkled John's ashes on the rock, with a small ceremony. We had rented Raven's Crest on this same mountain for many years before it was sold. John and I often wanted to rent Water Rock, but it was too big for 2 people. So finally, I was privileged to stay there. Thank you Tama."

  • Breathtaking!

    "The cabin and the view is beyond description. Breathtaking is the only word that comes to mind. We also enjoyed our game of ping pong. If you love mountain views, this is the place for you."

  • So very relaxing!

    "My wife and I added a couple of days on to the beginning of a conference to just get away and stayed at the Chestnut Log Cabin this turned out to be a great idea! The view from the front porch was a place I could have stayed our entire time. The town is an easy distance to walk to, it's very quaint with a surprising amount of dinner options. We went to the Tavern and the Iron Horse Inn, both were enjoyable. We hiked the Lover's Leap just across the river. It has some spectacular views and though we are novice hikers, we found it a moderate challenge but worth the effort. The hot tub was great to relax in after hiking. It's not state of the art, but it is very comfortable and relaxing. The only critique I would give is the need for bigger and softer towels for drying off. You might even consider bringing your own. If this is the only critique, then that's pretty good, but the towels were just small. Overall, Melanie was extremely easy to work with. Our time here was so great, just what we needed!"

  • Fabulous Place for a Family Retreat

    "This was our second visit to Hooked by the View (the first coming a few years back). The place is in fabulous shape, and the new fire pit on the lower deck is ideal for relaxing in the evening. Our group included folks from ages 8 to 73, and everyone found exactly what they were looking for. Dwight takes great care of the place, and is very accommodating and helpful. If you are looking for a quiet place to spend a week on Nantahala Lake, you won't do any better than Hooked by the View!"
