Bearfoot Lodge

Lakefront relaxation

Bearfoot Lodge at Nantahala Lake is a quintessential vacation destination. The lake is pristine and the views are picture perfect. Our spacious 5 bedroom 3.5 bathroom log cabin comfortably sleeps 16. It is ideal for reunions with extended family or a summer vacation with close friends.

This water front property is equipped with everything you could want in a summer retreat. While white water rafting, gem mining, and the Appalachian Trail are all nearby, you may find that there is no reason at all to leave. The open concept kitchen is well appointed and capable of feeding large groups. The cabin is newly remodeled with family entertainment in mind. There is ample space for guests to spread out and enjoy fishing, canoeing, billiards, and family games both inside and outside. If you prefer to kick back and relax you will be hard pressed to find a better spot than taking in the view of Nantahala Lake from the hot tub. For those who want to stay dry, enjoy some good conversation and gooey S’mores by the outdoor fire. 

Our family has traveled the world extensively but has visited Nantahala Lake yearly since our children were young. We started out making it a family vacation but soon felt like we needed to share this experience with our extended family. Over the years we visited various homes on Nantahala Lake and made a mental list of the best features of each property. Then we set out to purchase a place of our own that had all of these attributes. One that we could enjoy for years to come and share with our guests. As the saying goes, “Life is short and the world is wide” but we keep coming back to Bearfoot Lodge at Nantahala Lake because it doesn’t get better than this.
