Brevard house description

Escape to our mountain lakefront retreat to relax, recharge, and have fun in delicious privacy. Enjoy swimming or boating in the pristine lake from our private dock. Enjoy stunning lake views through the oversized windows in nearly every room or as you sit on the covered porch.

Custom-built in 2008, the house has everything you need for a fun family vacation or reunion, a romantic getaway or a girlfriend retreat. With 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, two living rooms, a well-stocked kitchen with two dishwashers, broadband Wi-Fi, linens/paper products provided, & luxe bedding, we believe that our home will feel like home to you also. Sip your morning coffee on our porch while enjoying a fire.

Enjoy the lake view from the master bathtub. Be captivated as the sunset fades & stars take over. Have a ping pong tournament. Everything is ready for your arrival and it’s our hope that you can relax, rejuvenate and enjoy the mountain getaway you deserve.


Master bedroom has a king-size bed, the second bedroom has a queen-size bed and a single, the third bedroom has a queen bed, and the den has a set of bunkbeds, a double futon, and a daybed.

While you're here take a day-long Hunger Games Fan Tour in the nearby Dupont State Forest to see some of the movie locations and experience the world of Katniss and Peeta first hand.

LGBT-friendly.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: We love traveling the world, eating wonderful ethnic food, experiencing nature, and visiting historical places.

                      Why the Owner Chose Brevard:
                      We grew up in Brevard so we know about the natural beauty of the area. We inherited this lakehouse from one of our parents who in 2008 built this special lake retreat house, called Belonging Place, so that she and groups she cared about could renew themselves in the beautiful, quiet mountains and the mesmerizing lake.
