Highlands chalet description

Looking for a special place to get away together? Or perhaps reunite with family or good friends? Do you like thoughts and images of an 'old world' French chateau perched lakeside on a private, absolutely beautiful rocky point surrounded by trees and water with a captivating view of the mountains? Do four fireplaces throughout the house and an intimate cascading water feature outside, set in a grotto, tucked along an arched veranda speak to sensual romance?

If so, then La Chatelaine on Lake Sequoyah just moments outside the Aspen-like downtown of Highlands, NC is awaiting your arrival. Come and enjoy intimate dinners, fireplace encounters, mountain lake strolls and unforgettable views in the getaway house of your dreams. The chateau offers vaulted ceilings punctuated with rustic beams, panoramic breathtaking views of Lake Sequoyah and a gourmet kitchen. Curl up with a good book and a glass of wine in front of the massive 1730's French limestone fireplace. Upon your arrival you will find a pool table, three large flat screen t.v.'s and wireless internet access. The master bedroom boasts its own marble fireplace and flat screen television. Antiques abound. This is truly a modern 18th century chateau. There are expansive decks as well as a pair of kayaks and one canoe from which you can enjoy the lake. Grab one of the fishing poles and try your luck at catching dinner or simply drive 3 minutes to the charming downtown of Highlands and eat at any one of the many award winning restaurants found there. The chateau is ideally located within minutes of waterfalls, hiking trails, golf, antiquing, fine dining, art galleries, a live auction house, a world class spa and shopping.

This is a place for souls to share. Relax, unwind, and when it is time, venture out into the enchanting town of Highlands. You will be delighted!

              Location

              The town of Highlands offers many quaint art galleries for your enjoyment as well as a beautiful new state of the art gallery known as The Bascom. If you are in the market for a piece created by a local artist the galleries of Highlands are definately worth a visit. Another activity of interest is the live auction house. It goes by the name of Scudder's and always promises to have unique and beautiful items at great prices. Even if you do not intend to take part in the auction, it is a really fun and entertaining thing to go and watch after a delicious dinner in one of the many award winning restaurants in Highlands.
