Get away from it all and spend some quality time with the ones you love at the lake. This upscale home is located in a gated community at Fontana Lake. Truly lakefront, this home boasts its own private double-deck dock (yes, you can jump from the top if you dare) stocked with a canoe, pedal boat, kayaks, and stand up paddle boards. Seasonal pontoon rental is available for an extra fee so that you can explore this beautiful, large lake to your heart's content.
This upscale home has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, sleeping up to 10 guests comfortably. With a large wrap around, covered deck, you can grill out and enjoy the breathtaking view (you just might catch the scenic Great Smoky Mountain Railways train pass across the water), or cook meals for the family in the large, well-appointed kitchen. Catch fish from the private dock for dinner, roast marshmallows at the outdoor fire pit, or go for a run down the quiet gravel road. Tired out from activities? Watch a movie on the enormous projection screen home theater, or curl up with a great novel from the large library. Old and young will find plenty to do at the lake. Need to check in with work? Satellite wi-fi is provided.
The main floor of the house has two bedrooms and two baths (one king and one queen), while downstairs has a large bed room perfect for kids or young families (one full and two bunk beds) and an additional bath. The two upstairs bedrooms have flat screen televisions with Direct TV satellite, and blu ray players, and the downstairs family room has a large home theater system with surround sound. The main living room has an impressive stacked stone fireplace for cozy nights. The downstairs family room has gas logs.
The downstairs patio has a large hot tub for soaking those cares away.
Fontana Lake is part of the TVA system and varies its levels throughout the year. The lake is usually at full capacity from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Our dock stays in the water year round, though in the winter months, some traversing over rocky banks is necessary (my kids love exploring this "moonscape." Steps take you down to the dock and lake year round, but if you have guests who find stairs difficult, you can drive to the marina and pick them up there for easier access to the lake. Also, please note that the lower level of the house is accessed inside the house by a spiral staircase (there are also more gradual exterior steps). This can be blocked for young children, but parents should take note.
