Lake Summit cottage description

This little mountain home was professionally restored and decorated four years ago by the Houston shop, Olivine. It is tucked away just a few minutes from the main roads, 225 and 25. This 850 square foot cottage has wooden floors, a wood fireplace, two bedrooms (one has a queen bed and one has a double),a bathroom with claw-foot tub and a hand-held shower.The kitchen has all appliances, including dishwasher and coffee maker.The family room has cushy, slipcovered down-filled furniture, flat screened TV with cable, DVD player,and a fireplace. A door opens to the screened porch, high up in the trees, with a lovely view of the lake. There is an original stoned terrace off of the kitchen with a view of the lake, and it also boasts the lovely sounds of a large,recently constructed waterfall beneath it. On the other side of the home, a deck has been built beneath the trees for a completely different experience! The house has a basement with washer and dryer, and it has recently been carpeted. This summer, some of our guests put a cub tent in the basement and their little boys slept in it! The door opens right at the bottom of the waterfall, so it is more delightful than it might seem. Right across the road is our tiny dock, which is charming and delightful, perfect for swimming, fishing, and picnics by the water.This little dock has two red Adirondack chairs and stools, a table and plants.We have a cooler that you can fill with ice and beverages for a drink or a picnic by the water. We also have a canoe available for paddling around the lovely Lake Summit ,and swimming floats for fun in the water. Our property is in one of the lake's coves, and they are regulated as no-wake-zones, so little swimmers will be safe from skiers! It is also so much quieter than the main body of Lake Summit. This area has more to offer than we could ever tell you here. Look up Saluda, Flat Rock, DuPont Forest, Hendersonville, Asheville, Brevard, Cashiers...there is not enough time and so much to do! But really, what you will most enjoy is just hanging out at Tiny House!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: We live in Houston most of the year, but we have been coming up to the lake for years, due to very close ties with Camps Mondamin and Green Cove. Years ago we were lucky to purchase a house right above Camp Graystone.Then, when this little cottage came on the market, we quickly bought it as well,because it reminded us of our family vacations as children, in a simpler time.

              Why the Owner Chose Lake Summit:
              Tiny House is like a little cottage in the woods;it has alot of property on either side of it, so it is very private. We love the sweet, simple and charming aspects of this little house.This is a place where memories are made!
