Lake Summit cottage description

Tired of the fast pace and constant distractions of your everyday life? Come spend some time on beautiful Lake Summit and let yourself slow down to nature’s own speed.

Your first impression will be of the charming yellow cottage on the hill. The exquisite landscaping of butterfly bushes and and hydrangeas (just professionally designed and installed) compliment the brand new stone pathways leading toward the home.

This home features Heart Pine flooring throughout and is a cozy mix of antiques and modern day furnishings. The kitchen has been recently remodeled with luxurious quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry. Both full bathrooms have also received new quartz countertops and custom cabinetry.

The main house can accommodate 6 people with sleeping for 2 more in the bunk beds at the boathouse. The front bedroom has 2 double beds, a chest of drawers and a bedside table. The middle room features an antique double bed, a twin bed, 2 chests of drawers and 2 bedside tables. The master bedroom has a large king bed with 2 chests of drawers and a bedside table.

Enjoy either the attic fan or the central air conditioning while you are in residence at the main house.

Plan on spending a bit of time unwinding on the wraparound porch of this cottage surrounded by the natural beauty of the North Carolina mountains. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings while sitting on the porch looking over the lake as the morning fog rolls over the water.

Across the road is the fabulous waterfront area anchored by an extra large double boathouse. The boathouse is family fun central! The upstairs features a great room with a large sitting area for television viewing, glass top table with seating for 6, kitchen with large counter top, refrigerator, ice-maker and separate bedroom and half bath. The Pawley's Island hammock is also a must for an afternoon nap. Outside is a great deck where many kids and some brave adults jump off! It is also a great place to read.

Lakeside down below features an oversized Ipe deck with table & chairs plus chaise loungers for bathing in the sun. A boat slip is available for the renter's watercraft.

          Entertainment at this house is the waterfront. The Lake Summit Property Owner's Association allows renters to obtain a boating permit and to use the boat landing to launch boats. We have one space in our boathouse for a renter's regular size ski boat. We do provide a kayak and paddles. You can rent paddleboards and other water toys nearby. On the upper enclosed level, there is a kitchen with a large counter area , cabinets, refrigerator, ice-maker and sink. There is also a hammock, bedroom and half bath so you can enjoy your whole day lakeside! There are many bikers and walkers who enjoy the 14 mile long lake road. You may want to bring your own bikes.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1916

          About the owner: This property was originally purchased a century ago by our Great-Grandfather, Adolph Vermont, who was a beloved professor at Converse College. At the time of the purchase, there were 2 houses and 2 lots. The cottages were used to house the workers who were building the dam. This home and the surrounding property are still in our family. My brother and I (who are now the fourth generation to trustee the home for the next generation - we are merely the current custodians) grew up swimming and skiing on the lake and now our children adore their summer time on the lake. As the children are growing up, we are no longer able to spend the entire summer on the lake so have begun to share this special property with others.

          Why the Owner Chose Lake Summit:
          This special property was one of the original homes built on highly desirable Lake Summit. Homes here are passed down from generation to generation. It is a gentle, clean, refreshing mountain lake, built by Duke Power Company a century ago to power area textile mills. It is the home of Camps Mondamin, Green Cove and Greystone.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The home is a completely remodeled century-old house which provides the right mix between charming old and updated new.
