Cottage on Lake Santeetlah

Cottage on Lake Santeetlah

Our Cottage on Lake Santeetlah offers the perfect setting for a wilderness retreat where you can indulge in a variety of outdoor and aquatic activities or simply relax in the tranquility of a quaint mountain development that has preserved an era of days past.

We have an open design that includes a full kitchen, living room and dining area as a large open space (there are two small bedrooms and one bathroom). The sliding doors provide a full view of the lake as well as to the screened-in porch where you can enjoy an early morning cup of coffee and an evening meal. The porch provides alternate access to the beach, about 50 feet away, easily accessed on the level back yard. There are no steep, tiring steps to climb up and down to get to the waterfront.

Every room and kitchen cabinets were freshly painted for 2019 with all new carpets and new kitchen and vinyl flooring. There is high speed Internet and a new Samsung SmartTV for your evening entertainment. Our property is unique because of its beach; only a handful of Santeetlah properties have beaches making this location very family friendly and also allowing people to walk into the water as well as sit beachside. A dock is also available for boating and there are multiple kayaks and lifejackets available and ready for your use.

The living room has two very comfortable leather couches to lounge while reading, watching the scenic twilights and the dew rising from the early morning waters. The couches can sleep two additional people in comfort. The bedrooms are large enough for a queen size bed in one and two twin size beds in the other. The bathroom has a shower and bathtub.

You’ll love the lake water; you can swim comfortably 3 of the 4 seasons. During the spring, it’s in the upper 60’s to low 70’s and it remains in the upper 70’s to 80 throughout the summer – very unusual for a mountain lake. Kayaking and canoeing is very enjoyable and boating is an adventure exploring the many fingers and coves where you can anchor for an afternoon for lunch and never see another boat while you swim, read or just relax.

Our guests find the screen porch and its long scenic view purely magic and children enjoy toasting marshmallows and S’mores in the firepit area.

We’ll be happy to answer any questions and accommodate you any way we can so you have a truly memorable vacation. We’re eager to share the Santeetlah experience with you and look forward to hearing from you.
