This time of year, corporate America is dreaming of warm sand, sunny skies, and cool drinks by the water. Some of us are lucky enough to enjoy pristine water views year round, while others share their Lake Nantahala real estate with family, friends, or renters. If you and your family are slipping away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, follow our Lake Nantahala vacation guide to get the most out of your time in the mountains.
Plan a Lake Nantahala Vacation
- Plan Ahead. No one wants to show up to a dusty cabin. If you haven’t visited the lake in awhile, send a cleaning service to tidy up. Does one member of your party have an extra day off work? Compensate them for tidying the lake house and buying groceries with a relaxing afternoon to enjoy the lakeside amenities.
- Make a list. There’s nothing worse than realizing you’ve purchased too much food. Save yourself the hassle of tossing groceries—or going back for seconds—by listing the meals, drinks, and snacks you’ll need as you relax by Lake Nantahala. Make a second list for lakeside essentials like sunscreen, beach towels, and your iPod dock. Chances are you can bring those from home.
- Research Your Activities. Some people love lounging by the lake for six days straight, while others prefer to explore the adventures of the Nantahala National Forest. The Reflection community is surrounded by beautiful nature trails, campgrounds, and fishing spots. If you want to move beyond your backyard, research the rafting lessons, kayaking excursions, and zipline adventures in the Nantahala Gorge.
No matter what kind of vacation your family enjoys, you won’t get bored at Lake Nantahala. Call Reflection for more information on buying a Nantahala vacation property.
