Unique experience: You'll receive many unique benefits as our guest. The location of the cabin with both lake and river access offers you different choices daily in water activities. The location of the boat slip is close and just a few mins walk. Views from the cabin are second to none. The floor plan of the actual cabin is really nice and convenient. The Bedding and mattress are comfortable. But the best benefit is the A+ service you will receive from me as my guest!

Why we chose this area for a vacation place: We chose to build our vacation home in this area because it offers many diverse activities.
You have winter sports to summer sports where the water is very clean. You have fall foliage to sunny summers with no humidity or mosquitoes.
You Beech Mountain, NC for snow skiing is 15 miles
