Waterfall Cove offers a mountain, lake and fishing vacation all in one. Lake Glenville, (just north of Cashiers NC,) is known as the highest lake east of the Mississippi river. The 3800 foot elevation means that summer temperatures never seem to get much higher than 84 degrees and nighttime temperatures sometimes dip in the the upper fifties - perfect for sleeping. This means that a vacation in the mountains is perfect for all outdoor activities.
A lakefront vacation in the mountains is all about the outdoors. Chances are you are going to want to be outside as much as possible. For this reason our home offers a large 20x23' covered deck for each level of the home. Even a occasional rain shower will not spoil your enjoyment of outdoors.
The newly remodeled kitchen includes granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Perhaps the most popular addition to our kitchen is the addition of a built-in Ice Machine. The bin holds 25lbs of ice and the machine is capable of making 50 lbs of ice in a day - to ensure that your ice chest or favorite beverage never gets warm.
During the summer the ducks in the cove have trained themselves to swim up to any people they see on the dock. Just feed them some stale bread and they'll be your new friends. The water at the end of the dock is always nice and calm in our protected cove - perfect swimming conditions and the lack of waves makes docking your boat a cinch.
We frequently invite another family to the lake with us. The adults typically sleep upstairs and the kids downstairs. The kids really love having their 'own' space. In 2013 we added another bunk room downstairs and equipped it with 2 Twin XL mattresses. This size mattress is popular on college campuses as it is 5 inches longer than a traditional size twin mattress which makes it suitable for a 6 foot adult.
The nearest town is Cashiers, NC. (about 15 minutes by car) and in addition to a full service grocery store (Ingles) it has some surprisingly good shopping for such a small city. My wife especially enjoys shopping at the consignment shop on Hwy 64. The country store near the corner of Hwy 107 and 64 is one of the most popular places to buy fresh produce. The town of Cashiers is bursting with civic pride and holds many special events throughout the tourist season. Check with the chamber of commerce for more information.
FISHING Lake Glenville was created by a Dam managed by Duke Power. I found fishing on this lake to be a challenge until I went out with a local pro. Successful fishing on such a deep lake involves casting a lure into the shallows preferably near a tree that has fallen into the lake. Fortunately just such a tree sits about 30 feet from my dock. A Successful boat fishing technique involves a fishing boat with an electric trolling motor with anglers casting lures near the shallows. Successful fishing guides slowiy move the boat around the shore while occupants of the boat cast and reel constantly until they get a strike. Large and Small mouth bass will likely be what you catch when you use the cast and reel method. Bluegill are common and always seem to be too small. My fishing pro says walleye are in this lake but can be hard to catch outside of spawning season.
If all you want to catch are undersized bluegill that can be accomplished fairly easily by vertical fishing off the side or end of my dock. My little grandchildren are at that age where they just like to catch something. Undersized bluegill is just the thing for them and they are easy to catch right off the dock with live bait.
Tubing and skiing are the most popular activities on Lake Glenville. Pontoons and speed boats are available for rent at the local merchants. Pontoons can be a good choice if you like to cruise with a lot of people. They are easy to get on and off and they can move fast enough for kids to have a fun time on the tubes.

About the owner: I am a computer programmer by training and profession. My brother discovered this lake in 1996 and lives on the other side of the lake from me. My wife and I grew up in Des Moines, IA and currently reside in the Atlanta GA area. We have 5 kids and 3 grandchildren and find this home in the Blue Ridge Mountains is the perfect escape from the Atlanta summer heat.
Why the Owner Chose Trillium: We wanted a place on the lake that didn't get a lot of waves. Since this property is located in a protected cove on lake Glenville, it never sees the high winds and waves that can be present in other parts of the lake. This makes the home a perfect place for swimming, kayaking and fishing off the dock.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The sounds of Norton falls can be heard 24/7 from the deck of my home. The falls are located just 200 yards from the end of my dock. Put on a life jacket and swim under the falls or enjoy feeding the ducks from the dock.
