On a ridgetop at 3600 feet elevation, Misty Laurel Chalet has a beautiful view of Lake Nantahala (which is at 3000' elevation) and the Smoky Mountains beyond. Imagine awakening to a gorgeous view of the lake and then taking a brisk walk thru a lovely forest with crisp, clean air.
Misty Laurel is spacious - 2400 square feet - with two living areas, both equipped with flat screen TVs, DirecTV HD satellite receivers & DVD players, in addition to three bedrooms, so the kids can entertain themselves downstairs while the adults enjoy themselves upstairs. There's also an extra dining table, full-size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker downstairs, so that increases the privacy options. Take a look at the floorplan illustrations below.

My husband and I spent Christmas 2017 at Misty Laurel and had the most wonderful stay. I wanted to write this review since I rely on them when reserving a vacation home. Patrick Greany is every bit of a gracious host, often referring to us as his guests, ensuring we stayed warm due to the cold temperatures. He offered his 24/7 service if we had any issues. Aside from a wonderful host, the home was clean, decorated beautifully with the large windows overlooking the beautiful Lake. The view from inside the home is panoramic. The 3 story home had spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, a media room, beautiful open kitchen with all the amenities one needs, a fabulous fireplace and excellent in home entertainment. Patrick even asked us if we wouldn't mind Christmas decorations so when we walked in the door, we were greeted by a beautiful Christmas tree and other holiday decor. We never wanted to leave other than to take a drive into town to pick up provisions. There's plenty to do if you like the outdoors, but we enjoyed overlooking the Lake and soaking in the complete silence that this secluded retreat offers. Coming from Ft. Lauderdale, silence is a commodity. Complete quiet was soothing to the soul, while listening to the rustling of the leaves from a slight wind or the hooves of passing deer. We loved it so much that we wanted to share this and highly recommend this for anyone looking for a beautiful and quiet retreat. This is a definite 5 star accommodation.
Misty Laurel provides the perfect setting for a weekend getaway! The views from the villa and surrounding area are beyond gorgeous. The space includes all the amenities that one could ask for or need! Whether you are looking for a private family gathering or a weekend escape with friends, I highly recommend this villa for its absolutely stunning views, private location, and easy access to surrounding recreational activities.
A beautiful cabin with an adventurous access point. Very clean, with a great view and excellent amenities.
We had an amazing time at Misty Laurel Chalet. We were a group of 5 that went down to relax and have fun. The house was beautiful, well kept, and had pretty much every amenity needed from extra towels and washing machine/dryer to even a grill outside. The fully stocked kitchen was great as well with pots, pans, food processor, griddle, dishwasher, plenty of plates, bowls, knives, forks, spoons, etc. It was great to have WiFi and the TV for when we wanted to stay in and relax. The view was amazing from the outside deck the house to even being inside the house with all the windows facing the lake and mountains. It is a great place to enjoy the scenery of the mountains for those who enjoy greenry and mountain trails.
The Chalet was well stocked and everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. Communication with Patrick was excellent both before and during our stay and he was always available if we needed anything. While there is not much to do right outside the chalet, other then sit on the wonderful deck and look at the view (not bad thing for us), the lake, first class fly fishing, white water rafting and hiking is within a relatively short drive. We especially enjoyed searching for the multitude of waterfalls. If you are outdoors people looking for some time to detach this is the perfect place.
I booked the Misty Laurel cabin for Labor Day weekend to celebrate my mom's 60th Birthday. There was plenty of room for 8 adults to stay comfortably. I ended up bringing a bunch of stuff I didn't need because the cabin was so well stocked (cooking utensils, grill supplies, paper towels, toilet paper, seasonings, etc.) The host Patrick was so helpful and nice. He provided information in checking in/out, using the TV/internet, things to do in the area... It was great! Any question we had we found in the notebook he provided. I would definitely book his cabin again!! The view is spectacular. It's the perfect place for a relaxing get away. The lake and the marina (which we rented a boat from) are just down the road and the NOC is not far (we went white water rafting). I highly recommend staying at the Misty Laurel.
Great Place with an awesome view and the cabin is very well maintained. Patrick's is a great guy with great communication and fulfilling the host needs.
Great place! Worked well for our group. Patrick was helpful and communicative.
This home was awesome!! Our family visited for the solar eclipse and both the eclipse and the home exceeded our expectations. The house is located near the top of a mountain overlooking Nantahala lake. The view of the lake from the deck is framed by the trees surrounding the property. It is so peaceful. If you are looking for a place to get away, this is it. My wife is a stickler for cleanliness and she was thrilled. The home has a huge deck that is mostly shielded from the sun by the house, so it never really gets too hot. The rooms are very large and the beds were extremely comfortable. The lower level is pretty secluded from the upper levels so it gives a lot of privacy if you were to bring two families to the home. The area surrounding the home is great too. Our family took in the lake and the whitewater rafting with Carolina Outfitters on the Nantahala river. The people in the town were very genuine and gracious hosts. This was one of the best "relaxing" family trips we've ever had. We WILL be back. Thank you Patrick!
We can't thank Patrick enough for everything, from his generosity and resourcefulness at a very stressing time (hurricane Irma evacuees) he has made it all much easier. The location is breathtaking, with plenty of activities to be done near by. The cabin is a dream, it is well equipped with just about anything you may need and very spacious for everyone. Patrick was great at communicating and giving advice on what to do, and making sure our stay went well. He truly went above and beyond specially with the circumstances. I would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks again Patrick !
Misty Laurel is a perfect getaway space into the mountains. It's a spaceous cabin that is well stocked. The views in the images speak for themselves. Pat is also a good reference for local hikes and attractions.
This place is amazing! The view is wonderful and is the perfect place for a relaxing weekend. There's absolutely nothing missing: full kitchen, cozy beds and towels, bathroom supplies etc, everything was took care to the detail. Thanks Pat and Jo! Pat is an amazing host, always easy to contact and willing to help beyond the expected. We'll definitely going to come back for more incredible getaway weekends!
Myself and some family/friends spent the weekend before Thanksgiving at the Misty Laurel Chalet. The views are stunning and the house is beautiful. This is a place that is fully stocked with just about everything you could think of but the food itself! There's a gas grill, full kitchen with appliances and coffee maker, linens, board games, etc. We did not want for anything. They also provide a canoe and firepit with already split wood waiting for s'mores, and we got to see a bit of first snow for the season! The grocery wasn't far away for picking up supplies on the way in and the lake is right in view. Patrick was super communicative. He provides directions and maps, and the house has a handbook for just about anything you could think of - we had a storm the last night and the power was knocked out, but with landlines, the handbook, and Pat's help, we were covered on emergency lighting, extra blankets, and the number for the power company with little disruption to our plans of sitting in front of the fireplace and relaxing. He called to make sure we made it alright and is available at any time to assist if you should need it! For those of you who may have to work or connect from the cabin - the internet was capable of having to vpn and work remotely while having others streaming Netflix. I'd highly recommend this cabin - waking up in the loft, sitting up and looking out the floor-to-ceiling windows of the mountain and lakeside view at sunrise was worth the trip alone!
Great cabin! Great owners to work with!
