Lazy Elk Cabin overlooks Fontana Lake with breathtaking views of the Smoky Mountains and the lake. It has an incredible water/mountain view with private access as well as a private dock. The cabin includes the use of a side by side Polaris side by side ATV to be used to get your family to the private dock. For fitness minded guests, the hike can be invigorating. For those taking the side by side ATV, there is a short 100 foot level hike to the dock.
The dock is being expanded in 2021 to offer more family space for "hanging out" by the lake. With a private waterslide and sun deck, the family is sure to enjoy time in and by the pristine waters of Fontana Lake. For even more family fun guests can rent our beautiful 2019 Sylvan pontoon boat to explore all of Fontana Lake. (This allows avid hikers to access famous trails in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park which can only be accessed by boat.)
This property is a remote, scenic, and peaceful vacation escape destination in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. Approx. 65 mi-Gatlinburg, 86 mi-Asheville, 22 mi-Bryson City.
It is close to whitewater rafting at the Nantahala Outdoor Center, world class mountain biking at Tsali recreation center, fishing, hiking/exploring the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and touring the scenic roadways like the Tail of the Dragon (Hwy 129) and the Moonshiner 28. (Hwy 28).
The cabin has Hughes Net Next Gen 5's top plan for the area at 20GB data for the entire month and 25 MB speed. (There is not adequate Internet bandwidth for on-line gaming, downloading large files, streaming movies/music/etc. ). The Wi-Fi is only to be used to check e-mail, Wi-Fi calling, and internet browsing. We have added an additional Wi-Fi/hotspot through AT&T which gives enough bandwidth to hold Zoom meetings, FaceTime, etc. This addition now makes our cabin the perfect location to "work from home" during this pandemic and beyond!
All cell phone service is supported in the cabin thanks to a cell signal booster, however, reception outside of the cabin can be spotty. There is a reliable "land line" for guests to use.
The cabin has 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths with stainless steel kitchen appliances, Italian granite tile countertops, butcher block island on wheels, slate tiled floor, with kitchen appliances including a regular coffee maker, Keurig coffee maker, toaster, crockpot, and blender.

There is a convertible ping pong/air hockey table top that can be put over the dining table. The master bedroom on the main level has a king bed, 42' LCD TV with blue ray player, and a private bathroom with slate tiled floor and large 3' x 5' slate tiled shower and granite vanity.

Option to rent from mid May to mid October: 2019 22ft Sylvan pontoon boat (90 HP) for $1000/week or $250/day with a $500 refundable damage deposit). The pontoon boat is not available to rent from late October through early April due to the dock not floating during the late fall/winter months.
* Fontana Lake water levels vary throughout the year. The dock is typically floating from the 3rd week of April until the end of September. From October until late April the dock rests on the shore bank. Guests can still access the water by stepping off the 60' walkway and walking down the shore bank to the water. Fontana Lake is over 200 feet deep in areas so there is always a lot of water in this 30 mile long lake. The lake is slowly drawn down after labor day and is dropped approximately 50 linear feet during the winter months and typically starts rising in March.
The private dock on Fontana Lake is most easily accessed by using the side by side ATV. For our fitness minded guests, the hike takes about 8 minutes. Because the area is very mountainous, accessing the dock via a wheelchair or other assistive device is very difficult.
The cabin is located at the end of a 2 mile hard packed gravel one lane road. Although there is very little traffic on this road, guests are encouraged to drive slow and be prepared to safely pull over or back up slightly in the very rare event of a vehicle coming in the opposite direction.
Trash policy: Please do not leave any trash outside of the garbage can provided to avoid trash build up during rental which will attract local wildlife. Guests can take trash to community dump conveniently located off Hwy 28 during rental or call property manager to make arrangements.
Located in Robbinsville, this cabin is in a rural area and on the waterfront. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Fontana Lake and Cherohala Skyway. Be sure to check out the area's animals with activities such as game walks and birdwatching.
