Hog Hollow welcomes you to a very special adventure.
Our elegant yet charming two-story log home is located in a serene wooded setting just a mile from Lake Fontana. With paved access leading up a private drive, the four bedrooms, three full baths, and two great rooms on separate levels, making it ideal for two families or a large group of friends.

Just a mile down the road and you are at the shores of beautiful Lake Fontana, where a public boat launch is available for your boating and watersport activities. Hog Hollow is approximately 15 minutes from the Tail of the Dragon off Highway 28 near Fontana Dam, and very close to many attractions such as Nantahala and Cheoah rafting, Cherohala Skyway, Tsali Mountain Biking, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Fontana Dam, and Harrah’s Casino. All are a short drive yet far enough away that you maintain the peace and serenity of the cabin.
