Glenville lodge description
How about renting a house on a private island in the middle of Lake Glenville? This 3 bedroom 3 ½ bath home awaits you this summer. This air conditioned stone and cedar shake home has stone lined drives that view a man-made waterfall and pond. The home is accessed through a gated community overlooking Lake Glenville. The post and beam construction, accented with antique wood and elegant furnishings, makes for a perfect setting for your next vacation. There is a walking path around the island leading to the dock where you can keep your boat and find a lakeside pavilion to picnic or hang out during your day at the lake. The pavilion has a rest room and covered and uncovered decks. If you do not have a boat, there are canoes & a kayak available. Boat rentals are available through the Lake Glenville marina. The home’s caretaker is available 24 hours a day and will ferry to and from the island. The master bedroom is on the main level with a king bed, flat screen TV, and spacious bath with double sinks, bathtub and shower. Upstairs there are two bedrooms each with their own bath. One bedroom has a king and a twin day bed; the other bedroom has 3 twins and a trundle pull-out for a total of 4 twins. The main level boasts a large vaulted ceiling living and dining room and a beautiful fully equipped gourmet kitchen with modern appliances and granite countertops. There is a large screen TV in the wardrobe in the Great room with DVD player. Large deck areas and a fire pit add to the experience. This home will give you that perfect vacation you have been waiting for! Buck Knob Island is a short drive to both Cashiers and Highlands where you will find great antiquing, restaurants and shops. The area is often referred to as "the land of waterfalls", five of which feed Lake Glenville situated at 3542 feet above sea level with 26 miles of shoreline and pristine mountain lake waters. Lake Glenville is the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi River so summers remain cool. Summers are grand on the Lake, whether waterskiing, viewing waterfalls, fishing, hiking, camping, shopping or just relaxing. Being at the lake together with family and friends makes special memories that no other place can match. This home sits at the peak of Buck Knob Island where it is quiet and peaceful - you will not hear much of the boat noise apparent at most lakefront homes. There is a gas powered golf cart available for your use on the island. This is truly a unique vacation experience waiting for you. See you soon!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: This home has been our primary residence since the building was complete in 2006. We have since had 3 beautiful grandchildren who live about 10 hours away from us. We are planning to purchase a second home near them and have decided try to keep our beautiful mountain lake home and rent it out for part of each summer. This is our first attempt to try to rent the home so we have no history or referrals we can share with you. We have been retired for several years now - Charlie retired from the Marine Corps and then life as an electrical engineer for ITT. Nancy retired from a teaching career.
Why the Owner Chose Glenville:
Charlie had gone to summer camp in the mountains of NC and had long dreamed of returning to these mountains. We like living on the water. Several years before we retired, we made a trip to the mountains of NC visiting every major lake. We decided that Lake Glenville provided the best mix of beautiful lake property and community activities. We bought the lot several years prior to building and at the first opportunity moved here and began living this exciting life style.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We love living here and just sitting in front of the fire with a good book. The community has as many activities as you would care to take part in. The home is a delight, the stars at night are more plentiful than I have seen anywhere else. The island has built- in good neighbors and tranquility abounds. It is very quick and easy to get to Cashiers and Highlands and only a little over an hour to get to Asheville. Lake Glenville is truly a rustic mountain lake. The temperatures and lack of bugs in summer make being outside a real delight.
