Life never seems as calm as it does when you’re at Weegee’s Lookout.
The tranquil oasis is nestled in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest just off route 107 on Tabletop Road. Seemingly in a world of your own, your day would start by lounging on the wrap around deck with a fresh cup of coffee overlooking Lake Glenville and the Smokey Mountains. The blanket of morning fog resting on the mountaintops instantly eases your mind into wonder and deep thought.
Whether you want to spend the day exploring the wilderness around you or relaxing with your favorite book, it’s a must to end the day gazing at the sun falling behind the mountains. It’s truly hard to ignore one of the nature’s most mysterious scenic views.
Weegee’s Lookout, named after my mother who adored the outdoors and all the beauty that surrounds the property, has a casual atmosphere that invites relaxation. While on the property, you and your family and friends are able to connect with each other and the environment, often without even realizing it, due to the scenic views and peaceful stillness.
However, don’t be fooled by the serene ambiance. There are a number of adventurous activities for everyone in the family. Have an explorer in the group? The area provides miles of wilderness to travel and discover. Let your curiosity lead you to discover new wildlife and memories. How about a little daredevil? If your family has someone who wants to grab life by the horns and test the limits of their bravery, look no further than the bike trails and treetops just waiting for some company (but please make sure children are accompanied by an adult and safety procedures are expected). And for all those fish kids out there, there’s something for them too! Pristine rivers and lakes are ideal for swimming, water skiing and boating. Our private dock and Lake access you can drive to which is located just down the road off HWY 107. A great place to picnic, swim and park your boat. The crystal blue water is prepared to catch your fall off the rope swing or supply you with diverse fish to catch at your leisure. Oh, and grab your worn out shorts and head to the natural rockslides and mountain high waterfalls if you’re REALLY feeling gutsy. No matter your wants and needs, this mountainside home has something for everyone.
On the first floor you can enjoy the family/living room with the warmth of a beautiful stone fireplace in the company of your love ones. Sit around the fire playing games, sipping hot cocoa and making amazing memories with your family and friends. And during the summer, you can dine outside on the outer decks or on the beautiful stone patio, which has spectacular views of Lake Glenville and the Great Smokey Mountains.
The spacious master bedroom is also located on the first floor, where you can enjoy the comfort of rustic wooden walls and a canopy king size bed while watching a 55” hi-definition flat screen TV. You will find a newly renovated bathroom adjoining the master bedroom.
Another first floor amenity is a huge game room, which houses a pool table, a 65” flat screen TV with a sound system second to none, Wi-Fi, and very cozy seating area for the gaming observers.
