Congratulations! You’ve made a great choice in choosing to rent cabins in Cherokee, NC instead of staying in a hotel room. The natural beauty of the Smokies is unbound, especially the area of Fontana Lake. This is going to be a perfect vacation for hikers, naturalists, fishermen and watersport enthusiasts, and families—especially if you stay in a cabin.
Avid hikers and those new to the activity will both love hiking around Fontana Lake. The lake is famous for its surrounding trails that crisscross thorough the the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala National Forest.
Mountain bikers will also find solace in the 40 miles of biking trails around the lake, which have been named as one of the top 10 places to ride in America. After a long day of outdoor activities, the last thing you want to do is get back in the car and drive to a hotel. Skip the traffic and stay in a cabin! You’ll be able to walk or bike back to your private cabin each night and repeat the fun activities the next day!
Neat for naturalists

If you stay in a hotel you’re going to miss out on some nocturnal activity. Not so in cabins in Cherokee, NC! You won’t be able to sleep without hearing fascinating creatures that roam around outside at night.
A fisherman’s fancy
Fontana Lake boasts some of the best fishing in the country, and has even been described as the best lake to catch smallmouth bass in the U.S. In addition to smallmouth bass, the lake holds muskie, walleye, crappie, native trout, perch, bluegill, and catfish. After you’ve caught all your fish for the day, bring them back to your cabin and cook them up! All of our cabins come with a charcoal grill. All of our cabins also come with fully stocked kitchens, if you prefer to eat baked fish.
Wonderful for watersports

You can rent any watercraft imaginable: from kayaks to speed boats, Fontana Lake offers it all. After a tiresome day on the lake, spend a few hours sitting on the porch at your private cabin. All porches come with rocking chairs and picnic tables: perfect for ultimate relaxation.
