The beauty of the mountains and lake are yours to enjoy at this nice & comfortable Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah with private boat dock & porches overlooking Lake Santeetlah.
Lake Santeetlah is a pristine mountain lake with 76 miles of shoreline to enjoy swimming, boating and fishing. 80% of the land around the lake is managed by the US Forest Service.
Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah underwent extensive renovations in 2005-2006 and features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, fully equipped kitchen, tile flooring throughout the cottage, a screen porch on the main level, open porch on lower level with awe inspiring views of mountains and lake. The third bedroom & bath are located downstairs with outside entry only plus access to lower porch & a stairway to lake & private boat dock.
Located approximately 8 miles from the town of Robbinsville in the residential resort community of Santeetlah also known as Thunderbird Mountain Resort, Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah is conveniently located to many places of interest including Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, a virgin timber forest with enormous size trees over 400 years old, heights of 150 feet and circumferences of 20 feet. The Cherohala Skyway, a National Scenic Byway, leads you through wilderness mountain country where you will reach elevations over a mile high to enjoy the scenic overlooks, hiking trails & the wonders of nature. Fontana Dam, built in the early 1940's is the highest concrete dam east of the Rockies and is definitely a site to behold! Lake Fontana, bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, offers 240 miles of shoreline & is well known with fishing enthusiasts, boaters & swimmers. Also, of special note, areas of Lake Fontana & the town of Robbinsville were featured in the 1994 filming of the major motion picture 'Nell' starring Jodie Foster, Liam Neeson & Natasha Richardson. A scene in the filming of the movie 'The Fugitive' starring Harrison Ford was filmed at Cheoah Dam on Hwy. 129, near Tail of the Dragon & just minutes away from Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah.
You won't have to go far to find creeks, trout streams, hiking trails, waterfalls, wildflowers, mountain biking & horseback riding trails and of course whitewater activities on the Nantahala River or the Cheoah River, a class III - IV+ river for the experienced rafter & kayaker during special water release dates.
Many local artisans in this mountain region welcome you to their studios and it's a great way to see the back roads and countryside at the same time!
Come explore and enjoy our natural wonders, scenic beauty and great outdoor adventures - we're the less crowded side of the Smokies!
