Property description

This almost new mountain cottage has a master suite with king sized bed, a door leading to the covered front porch and a large master bathroom. On the other side of the house are 2 guest rooms with a shared bath. One guest room has a king bed and the other has 2 sets of bunk beds with adult comfortable mattresses.

The living/dining areas have cathedral ceilings, wood floors and are open to the kitchen. The well furnished screened porch, located through french doors from the living/dining area, offers an outdoor living area with TV and fireplace. There are two stone, wood burning fireplaces with gas starters - one in the living room and the other on the screened in porch. Easy to light and to enjoy!

The cottage sits between two streams which provides a perfect backdrop of flowing water. Across the street is the Millpond Pavilion which features an indoor living area with full kitchen, a large covered area with massive fireplace and 2 stocked, catch and release trout ponds-perfect for the kids! A great place for evening cocktails and a fire too.

You can enjoy winter activities within 1 hour of Bear Lake - Skiing at Cataloochee (toward Waynesville) or Sapphire Valley (toward Cashiers) and snow tubing and ice skating near Highlands at Scaly Mountain Outdoor Center.

Pets will be considered with a $100 pet fee.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in nearby Highlands, NC (another beautiful place) and built this cottage as a weekend getaway to enjoy the lake, golf course and great clubhouse! Our family is from Savannah, GA and moved up to the mountains to raise our family of 5 girls in 1985. We enjoy renting and house swapping all over - Mexico, California and the southeast.

Why the Owner Chose Tuckasegee:
Bear Lake Reserve is very unique. While we are 'in the middle of nowhere' you have every amenity at your fingertips without the crowds. You can visit many places during your stay at Bear Lake - Sylva - 20 minutes; Western Carolina University - 15 minutes; Cashiers - 30 minutes; Highlands - 45 minutes; Cherokee - 40 minutes; Asheville - 1 hour. Explore the Blue Ridge and Smokey Mountains from this spot and return to a very special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our cottage is situated close to the Greeter's Cottage (entrance) and just down the road (a few minute walk) from the Mill Pond with stocked trout ponds, streams, hiking trails, large covered pavilion with a huge fireplace (wood provided), bathrooms and a nice living room with fully equipped kitchen. A great gathering place for meals or just drinks.
