It Doesn’t Get Much Better Than This!! The beauty of the mountains and lake are enjoyed at this nice & comfortable Lakefront Cottage on Lake Santeetlah with private boat dock & screen porch overlooking Lake Santeetlah. Lake Santeetlah is a pristine mountain lake with 76 miles of shoreline to enjoy swimming, boating and fishing. The cottage underwent extensive remodeling and renovations in the winter of 2005 – 2006 with a totally new kitchen, ceramic tile floors, 3 new bathrooms, central heat and air system & some new furnishings.
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 climb to 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 borders 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!
Just 45 minutes to Cherokee where you can explore the History of the Cherokee Indians at the Museum or Oconoluftee Village, gem mining, shopping, perhaps take your chances at Harrah’s Casino or step back in time at the Pioneer Farmstead next to the Oconoluftee Visitor Center at the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on Hwy. 441. Train buffs are sure to enjoy a trip through the mountains on a Great Smoky Mountains Railway train with a train depot only 30 minutes away in Bryson City.
