  • Amazing Stay!


    This was truly an amazing Thanksgiving away. The cabin was great! It clean and very accommodating for a family of 12. Pictures simply cannot capture how beautiful the view was. The owners were great and very responsive with any questions we had. My family and I had an amazing time and will definitely return.

  • Such a peaceful home in the serenity of Nantahala!


    We were visiting for my brother’s wedding and had such a lovely visit! The house easily accommodated our group of 7 (two small kids) and could have comfortably fit a handful more. The kitchen was well stocked, lounge areas very comfortable for nights hanging with the family, and bathrooms very suitable for all the work that goes into wedding prep :) The beds were very comfortable and everyone felt like they had great nights’ sleep—very needed after long travels from the West Coast!

    But perhaps above all of that was Craig’s communication and responsiveness. He was SO helpful and friendly. He truly made our trip. And make sure you listen to his advice on getting a 4WD for the steep gravel driveway! We went in early Nov and there was one drizzly day that our 2WD barely made it out.

    Thank you so much for the great stay!

    Echo cabin was exactly as described. Fantastic lake views!! Fully stocked, great layout and easy lake access!! Cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed soaking up the view from the many porches, hot tub and the dock. Owners were very quick to respond to questions. We would definitely stay here again!

  • Awesome!! Disconnect for a Week!


    Well from the moment we walked in you could tell someone took great care in making the place one you would remember! The music was softly playing in the master bedroom lighting was on and it was chilled off nicely! And the view! Incredible!!!!We really enjoyed our stay and the owner texted us and communicated with us all week about things we were curious or recommendations needed. It was like texting a friend and very quick to respond.The lake was great food at marina was awesome as well as the staff. they delivered the rental boat right to dock as well as our friday night pizza!! Anyways Def would stay again The Lutz Family

  • Paradise!


    Our second time back to Echo and Nantahala Lake did not disappoint! Echo has to be the best spot on the lake in its own cove which makes for a great place to kayak, paddle board or swim with kids. The hot tub and foosball were an added bonus when we weren’t out on the lake or exploring the area. Rent your boat from Lake’s End Marina and they’ll deliver it right to the dock. Nantahala is great for tubing! Lake’s End is also the perfect place for dinner…especially their Friday night Fish Fry!

    Echo has been a great place for our family to spend time together! Our biggest problem has been scheduling fun activities at the NOC or Bryson City because we don’t want to miss any time at the cabin or on the lake!
