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... wine, cheese, gourmet chocolate, and warm baguettes out on the deck... French roast coffee, fresh berries, and buttery croissants for breakfast; mountain lake strolls and unforgettable views. This is a place for souls to share. Relax, unwind, and when it is time, venture out into the charming town of Highlands. You will be delighted!
In addition to the 3 traditional bedrooms there is a charming loft, accessed by way of a wrought iron spiral staircase. This is a semi-private inspirational space that holds a daybed with a trundle bed that together sleeps two. This sleeping arrangement is perfect for adventure seeking children or adults. This removed loft area offers a beautiful view of the lake, tall white pines lining her gently curving shorelines that meet at a point in the distance, drawing your eyes to the vast sky above. A perfect artists retreat!
The Master Bedroom has its own marble fireplace, a king bed with antique iron headboard, and aged crystal chandelier which together set a romantic tone. French doors open onto a private balcony overlooking the lake and beyond, and a modern, sensuous Master Bath with refined touches of Art Deco provide the understated luxury of an elegant 1930's French hotel.
The remaining two bedrooms are downstairs and flank the fireplace Game Room, all of which access a deck....moreless
