The most beautiful lake in the nation could be yours.

Santeetlah Lakeside makes you feel this unspoiled lake is all yours.

The glitter of sunlight on the lake by day. The twinkle of starlight above at night.

There’s an almost enchanted nature to life here, as if you’ve traveled to another time of simple simplicity enveloped by pristine nature.

When you gaze out on the lake from your dock at Santeetlah Lakeside, it feels as if the whole lake is yours. With three thousand acres of crystal-clear, stream-fed waters, 90 miles of shoreline — 90% held in conservancy — surrounded by more than one million acres of protected land, the peaceful setting of this lake feels like a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Lake Santeetlah has been ranked the #1 most beautiful lake in the nation by INSIDER, and it’s not hard to understand why. This is a true mountain lake with 360 degrees of mountains rising around it. An early morning paddle, as the mist lifts, will reveal that you’re encircled by the splendor of the Smoky Mountains. Your lake is also home to bass, walleye, bluegill, crappie, bream and lake trout – a fresh-water wonderland for fishing enthusiast.

Owner and developer, Jose Rosado, says, “From the moment I took my first boat ride on Lake Santeetlah, I made up my mind to immediately sell my lot on Lake Lure and relocate here. I knew I had found something extraordinary, and together with my partner Jack Minski, we have thoughtfully planned and nurtured this community into something worthy of the surrounding natural beauty.” 

Hidden away from traffic, cares, and stress.

One hundred miles west Asheville along the Indian Lakes Scenic Byway, just far enough to feel your pulse slow and your mood rise, Lake Santeetlah has long been referred as “a hidden gem.” This kind of peace and quiet is naturally off the beaten path. It is something that must be carefully sought — and well worth the search. And yet, only ten minutes from the community on a well-maintained road system, the quaint town of Robbinsville is where you can grab your groceries and necessities, visit with friends at a cafe, and return home to enjoy a sunset. 

Santeetlah Lakeside is an intimate community built in the attractive and timeless Adirondack architectural style. Each property has its own private lake front dock or its own dedicated boat slip at the community dock. And with the rest of Lake Santeetlah shoreline completely built out or protected from future development, Santeetlah Lakeside is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Among the amenities, the best may be peace of mind.

It’s a comfort to know that this private and serene community will always stay this way — a refuge of tranquility. In addition to the lake and surrounding protected forest, Santeetlah Lakeside offers dozens of places to relax and recharge — waterfalls and rock formations that enhance the natural beauty.

The lake side pavilion overlooks the lake and is a perfect spot to gather with family and friends after an exhilarating day on the lake. It even has convenient storage for your paddle board or kayak. Relax, build a fire and grill out with the family or enjoy a multitude of leisurely lake activities, like fishing, kayaking, or paddle boarding.

Next door, the Santeetlah Marina and Outfitter offers a full-service marina complete with fuel and boat rentals and everything you’ll need for an adventure on the lake.

Explore the land on hiking trails featuring serene waterfalls and unique rock formations. Venture out to the nearby Nantahala National Forest and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, fly-fish on the Nantahala River, or take your family white water rafting on the nearby Cheoah river.

And for those who would rather ride than hike, bikers and sports car enthusiast alike come from all over to traverse a stretch of road called the “Tail of the Dragon.”

Of course, if sitting on your dock with a drink and a good friend is your activity of the day, who would blame you? However you decide to best experience nature, Santeetlah Lakeside has the amenities to accommodate you.
