You’ve done it!
You have found THE Perfect Lakefront Retreat for Family and Friends!

24' 90HP Pontoon boat available as separate rental!

*** Discounts for non-credit card payment, small groups, and last minute bookings ***

This beautiful custom home is the perfect retreat for your special gathering with your family and friends. Our spacious luxury home has over 6,500 square feet and every amenity to ensure an awesome and memorable experience for everyone in your group...whether that is quiet time relaxing and enjoying gorgeous views over beautiful Lake James, action packed days enjoying the lake, kayaking and canoeing, exploring undeveloped islands, fishing, tubing, water skiing, and boating; or off the lake, hiking trails and mountains, spelunking caverns, zip-lining or mountain biking; then perhaps joining up again in the evening for s’mores around the fire pit, friendly challenges in the game room, a favorite movie in the home theater, or cozy gatherings around the stone fireplaces.

The home is built with natural materials throughout; gorgeous hickory floors, extensive stone and custom iron work, exposed beams, wood paneled vaulted ceilings, and 10' 4' ceilings on main level. The house uniquely combines luxury amenities with natural materials and rustic accents to enhance your mountain experience on the lake!

The wonderful large gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home with granite, top end appliances (Wolf and SubZero), a massive central island with prep sink, breakfast nook with long table, and counter bar with comfy barstools. The dining room has a fabulous 72' round table with bench seats and lazy susan - perfect for great conversation with a large group! Each of the two inviting living room areas has cozy quality seating, a stone gas fireplace, and a wall of full height glass doors for views and access outdoors. A huge game room includes pool table with ping pong top, foosball, Wii video game system with games including Rock Band, game table, and electric piano. The family game closet is full of games for all tastes and is complete with jigsaw puzzles. The soundproof home theater features stadium seating and an 82” TV. The kitchenette/wet bar on the lower level is perfect for refreshments and snacks. If you are looking for a nice quiet place you can head off to the awesome chaise lounge in the sun-room boasting the best views in the house, a cozy seat in the loft, or a quiet spot in a hammock or chair on the deck or patio. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spots!

Electronics include stereo with Ipod and Pandora hookup. Stereo speakers throughout the house, custom controlled within each room. WiFi, satellite TVs, Blue-Ray players, and on-demand Netflix.

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, with double tankless water heater so you never run out of hot water.
Master bedroom: king bed and luxury bathroom with jetted spa shower and whirlpool tub
Bedroom two: king bed and bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub
Bedroom three: two queen beds and access to hall bathroom
Bedroom four: queen bed, shares hall bathroom with bedroom five
Bedroom five: two twin beds
Plus there is an additional full bathroom. Nearly all furnishings and mattresses are top quality and brand new. All linens are high quality. 2 full size cribs and 2 additional twin beds in game room & study.

The outdoor area includes a large open deck with stunning views and large gas grill. The lower deck has flagstone floors with porch swing and large deep seating patio set. It's an easy walk from the house to the double slip dock with party deck and diving board (depth of 30 ft at dock!). You are welcome to use our canoe, 2 kayaks, and 14' Phantom Sailboat. You can bring your own boat or PWC to keep at the dock, or you can rent our 24' pontoon boat. Gathering around a fire in the fire pit or feeding fish at the dock will create fond memories for everyone.

The house is ideally located near the center of the lake, so there is easy access to other areas of the lake, it is in a protected cove, so there is no boat traffic and it's quiet and safe for swimming and fishing. Just outside our 'no-wake' area is a larger cove that is ideal for tubing and waterskiing. Lake James is a fantastic destination.... an unspoiled pristine lake in the mountains.

You may not want to venture out at all! But if you do, you will find an abundance of attractions close by. Walking, hiking and biking are popular at Lake James State Park just a few minutes away. The more adventurous may choose to hike at Shortoff Mountain, the Appalachians, the Pisgah National Forest, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Gorge, or Grandfather Mountain. Linville caverns provide the unique opportunity to explore inside a mountain. If golf is your game, Marion Lake Club Golf is literally just around the corner. During the snow season, skiing and tubing are nearby. There are also wineries and festivals to explore.

Asheville is 45 minutes away, where you can visit the Biltmore Estate or shop at the unique markets and festivals. The area is known for its unique atmosphere, art and antiques. And of course there is the beautiful scenery around every corner of the lake and mountains!

This is the perfect place for your retreat! As soon as you arrive you'll know you made the right choice - now the only decision is whether to sit down and relax, or start exploring the house, the lake, and the area, and in all cases enjoy the company of your loved ones!

To make sure your stay goes as planned, local support and assistance is available to you 'just in case' you have any special needs, problems or concerns.

'Tucked away in rolling hills at the base of Linville Gorge is Lake James, a 6,510-acre lake where nature offers scenic vistas of the Appalachian Mountains and beckons to those with an appetite for recreation.'
