Tuckasegee house description

Kick back and enjoy this beautiful mountain retreat located in scenic Western North Carolina! Come and enjoy the dozens of mountain activities/sports/recreation or come and do nothing at all but read a great book, doze by the fire and watch lightning bugs dance in the meadow! Our screened back porch opens to a gentle creek where the sounds of nature invite you to let the cares of the world just melt away. Fill your lungs with the fresh mountain air and you will sleep like you never have before! We are just two and a half hours from both Atlanta and Charlotte which makes Bear Lake Reserve the perfect getaway destination.

If you like to be on the move then hit the road and explore nearby Cashiers, Highlands and Asheville where shops and restaurants abound!Don't forget to visit the Biltmore House. You may head to Nantahala for some white water rafting or tubing adventures or explore Chimney Rock on a self-guided hike! Or, if you prefer, stay on Bear Lake Reserve and enjoy the numerous amenities available at your doorstep. This wonderful property boasts dozens of groomed hiking trails, a Jack Nicklaus golf course, stocked fishing ponds, a Lake Clubhouse with 2 pools, 2 hot tubs and a pool side bar, a gorgeous restaurant(and separate lounge) with views of the lake, a fitness center, a movie-theater room and children's activity room with seasonal planned activities for the kids! We promise, you will have plenty to do right here!

Our three bedroom, two and a half bath cottage is a wonderful place to explore these beautiful Western Carolina mountains! Whether springtime with daffodils and dogwoods; or summer with fireflies and s'mores; or fall with our mountains ablaze with autumn color; or even winter with the still of the trees and the warmth of the fire, you will relish this time away!
Come, visit and stay awhile! Make this your home away from home! We look forward to hearing from you!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Marie and Rusty Ross RN and retired physician

                  Why the Owner Chose Tuckasegee:
                  We first visited Bear Lake Reserve in 2012 and simply fell in love with the peaceful and tranquil beauty of the North Carolina mountains. We knew that this was the perfect place for our alabama family to escape the heat and enjoy the mountain lifestyle. We are 8 hours door to door from Alabama to Bear Lake and we hope, one day, to make North Carolina our part-time or even full-time home!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our house sits almost at the top of the mountain. The mountain and forest views are simply stunning. The best way to describe our days on the mountain would be to say that it is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.....We truly 'unwind' and find our peace here!
