Fish from the private dock or canoe around the lake. OR RENT SEA RAY SKI BOAT OR PONTOON BOAT AT YOUR DOCK! Sit and rock on one of the wrap-around porches overlooking Lake Glenville. With 26 miles of shoreline and fish galore, Lake Glenville is the vacation spot for those who want to beat the heat or just get away to a beautiful mountain lake vista. Hiking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, or a round of championship golf at nearby resorts, are just a few of the activities available. This FAMILY friendly home is located DIRECTLY ON LAKE GLENVILLE, the largest and highest fresh-water lake east of the Mississippi. Come visit now! Hike or take the canoe and tour the deep, cool water just outside your door. Remember your fishing pole! First class golfing is available at Trillium and Sapphire Valley courses. Nearby snow skiing is available in the winter and we now have three boats for rent at a special guest rate for the week. Enjoy your private boat at your private dock on the lake.
Family reunions-- our specialty! Bring everyone- grandma AND Fido!
Summer is THE BEST on the Lake!: There is never a dull moment at the lake-- whether water-skiing, tubing, wake surfing, behind the SeaRay, or relaxing on a lake cruise in one of the pontoon boats. If you prefer viewing waterfalls, fishing, hiking, camping, shopping or just relaxing, this is the place for you. Just being at the lake together makes special memories that no other place can match! There is something for everyone to do.
Turn the kids loose to jump in the lake or take the canoe while you sit on the porch rocker and just read a good book. Enjoy a seat at the adjacent cove or take the gang skiing, tubing, OR wakeboarding on the 20 ft SEA RAY with a new 357 hp MerCruiser engine. (RENT it at YOUR DOCK)
Go for a hike and view a waterfall of magnificent beauty; visit a local town and go antiquing; view mountain art at one of the many craft shows. Golf at one of the local top class courses. If you want moment to moment activity for all age groups, it is readily available. If you want relaxation, it is inherent in this 'getaway from it all'-paradise.
Think of summer 2016 now! This is the most popular time for cooling off at the lake
Fall leaves and THANKSGIVING in the mountains: Leaves are the big draw for the month of October, but September offers solitude and wonderful weather and sometimes leaf changes. Floridians enjoy September for the cool nights and the temperate days. Fall is a great time to relax and take in all the color and splendor that nature has to offer. Popular fall craft shows abound in the area and 'leaf watchers' take daily rides to see the changes throughout October. Special rates are available in Sept, Oct, Nov. early Dec, so there's no reason to hesitate and get away!
Thanksgiving is that special 'together time' for families. Bring the whole gang for the holidays and enjoy the open views after the leaves have fallen. Eat, drink, and be together and then take a long hike to lose those calories! Hiking is best during October and November as the leaves turning or are down and the mountain views are spectacular! Before everyone exits to go back to reality, pick out and chop down your hand-picked Christmas tree--a family tradition that will make the Thanksgiving mountain holiday complete!
Christmas and New Years viewing the lake and mountains is a wonderfully peaceful time. The nearby towns of Highlands and Cashiers have special Christmas tree lighting festivals and everywhere the tiny Christmas lights abound. The lake is quiet, but the views are still unbelievable from the cozy lakefront living room. With a cup of hot cocoa and the fireplace blazing, many families have 'reconnected' with each other while working on a puzzle, playing cards, or having a game of Scrabble. Bring your jacket and mittens to chop down your own tree to make this Christmas a memorable time for the entire family. Let the Joy of Christmas draw you and yours to this beautiful family retreat.
Ring in the New Year in peace. If one of your resolutions is to avoid the rush, crowds, and traffic with drunk drivers on New Years Eve, then being on the lake is for you! Go out for a gourmet meal at a local restaurant and then relax with a 'toast to life' in front of the fireplace. Recharge yourself for the new year.

Great for Family Reunions! Room for everyone!
This lovely, expansive home is DIRECTLY ON THE LAKE in the mountains at 3800 feet above sea level. Lake Glenville is a resort area for outdoor activities all year round. Summer brings so much to do with boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, or golfing. Just minutes away are both Cashiers or Highlands where many enjoy shopping for antiques and works of art. Fall craft festivals are local events, and winter brings fun with snow skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. Any time and any season is a great time in the mountains on the lake! Most of all, it is a great area to relax with family and to enjoy the cooler temperatures in summer, Fall leaves, or snow skiing.
Other Activities: TWO BOATS ARE AVAILABLE.
1) 20FT 'SMOKER CRAFT' FISHING/CRUISING PONTOON BOAT, Live bait well; seating for 8-10 people.
Competitive rates: Daily@$275. Three days: @$750; Five days@1100; Weekly@$1500
2) 21ft SEA RAY BOWRIDER with 357 hp engine. Fast boating for tubing, skiing, or wakeboarding. 8 people. Rates: Weekly@ $1875; 5 days @ $1550; 3 days @ $1050; Daily @ $365.
All rentals are to be returned with a FULL TANK of gas. Liability waiver required.
Golf: World class golfing is available at Sapphire Valley and Trillium Resorts. Golf in cool summer temperatures while making your way through the courses above 3000 feet. This is a sought after destination and your rental home is only 3 minutes from the finest course at Trillium. Pack your clubs and get away to the splendor of a mountain golf paradise and stay on the Lake.
If there are others who don't share your golfing zeal, they can relax on the dock or go into the nearby towns for shopping and lunch at a gourmet restaurant. (Leave the credit card! You won't need it at the golf course!)
Ski: Skiing is available at Sapphire Valley (15 minutes away) and Maggie Valley (1 hour away). Not exactly the slopes of the Rockies, but definitely fun for those who are still amateurs. Equipment rental is very affordable, as well. A new snow tubing area has been added and seems to be as popular with the younger folks as downhill skiing.
Maggie Valley is just an hour away and has more challenging slopes. They also rent equipment on site.
When you are all worn out, return home to sit in front of the fireplace with a hot cocoa and a great movie!
Year Purchased: 2005

Why the Owner Chose Glenville:
We loved the lake and cooler weather for summer. We enjoy water sports and found water skiing to be the best on the lake!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The gently sloping property with the quiet cove convinced us to become "lake people." The culture of going to visit friends on the lake by boat has made us yearn to come here every summer.
