The Santeetlah Lakeside Discovery Tour: A Weekend Getaway in the Heart of the Mountains

To fully grasp the beauty and serenity of Santeetlah Lakeside, you have to experience it firsthand.

Fortunately, we offer discovery tours for families and individuals seeking a new lakefront home or condo. While you enjoy a weekend getaway, we’ll take you on a private tour of the community and available properties, as well as the amenities and features that make lake life so relaxing and fun at Santeetlah Lakeside.

A special season is upon us.

This is the time of year that families from all over the country flock to the mountains, to experience the changing seasons as the warm summer days fade into fall. Late October and early November are prime leaf-viewing months, when the mountains come alive with bursts of brilliant reds, yellows, and oranges scattered throughout the trees.

While Santeetlah Lakeside offers a front-row seat to the changing autumn hues, there are several other popular spots near our community to explore the colors as well, including:

  • Nantahala Forest
  • Nantahala River
  • Blue Ridge Parkway
  • Appalachian Trail
  • Tail of the Dragon

We’re excited to welcome new home buyers looking to learn more about fall at our lakeside community. But you better hurry — the accommodations book quickly this time of year and the leaves won’t be here for long. Schedule your discovery tour today!
