Property description

The Avett House location is great for 2 reasons!! First, it is located in the center of all Lake activities!
Equal distance from Stuart Auditorium and the playground/swimming activity center, you can watch your children walk to either while you read, rock and visit on the grand front porch! Lake and mountain views from the porch, dining and living rooms and the most coveted sleeping porch upstairs. Secondly, it is located in the middle of Smokey Mtn. activities! Asheville, Cherokee, Bryson City, Nantahala, Highlands, Hot Springs, Max Patch, Cataloochee...all make great day trips. Maggie Valley and Wayenesville are next door!
So, whether your group is small or large, you cannot beat this beautiful and convenient location! We love it!
We believe you will, too!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: This house has been in the Avett Family since 1959. It has been a gathering place for all of our family all of these years. Thank goodness 'walls can't talk!' When our Aunt Martha wanted to lessen her responsibilities, we were thrilled to continue the family ownership and take it under our care. Family gatherings in the summer and fall continue and we , obviously, share the house with others when we can't be there. We have vacationers who now are our long distance friends who have been coming to the house every summer for 20 to 33 years! REALLY!! We hope you will find it to be the perfect retreat from the 'real world' as we all do!

Why the Owner Chose Lake Junaluska:
You will enjoy the charm of a house that was built in 1917 with its stone fireplaces, warm woodwork, clawfoot tubs, high ceilings, eclectic furnishings and sturdiness of construction. We have worked to provide modern comforts and conveniences while preserving its' past. (We even have a brand new washer/dryer and sparkling new refrigerator!) We think your group will find it comfortable and intriguing! The children love to play hide and seek in all of its' nooks and crannies. It is the perfect family reunion space as well as being ideal for any gathering of friends who want to renew friendships. There's plenty of room to gather OR spread out for privacy. Our rental history underscores this! Downstairs bath is completely remodeled and you will be connected to Wifi everywhere!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will be in the middle of all of Lake Junaluska activities should you wish to take advantage of those. Day trips to traditional Western NC sites are easily done. If you don't want to cook, there are tons of restaurants close, close by. Childcare is available at the Children's center until Labor Day. Swimming, putt-putt, tennis, shuffleboard, paddleboats, canoes, walking path around the lake, golfing, even a basketball court...all available 'on the grounds' of the Lake. Defintely a wonderful secret to discover for your vacation!!
