Beautiful home, perfect size. Fun on the water!
We stayed in this home in the summer with our three children and had the best time. House was beautiful. Loved the outdoor dining area. Access to kayaks and canoe was a huge bonus. Kids swam in the beautiful lake all day long while we spent time reading on the wonderful deck/patio area with steps down to the water. Plenty of space inside with a cozy hang out area. Neighbors were such a help finding the place when we showed up on a dark and stormy night with the power out. (Don’t follow google maps directions!) Neighbors were so kind and helpful and our kids made some fast friends with theirs.
We would love to return some time.
Very comfortable lake house
We planned a short getaway to the NC mountains, and so enjoyed this lake front property. We were able to go into Morganton for some fine dining, and hiked in the mountains at Hawksbill Trail. The home was very nicely furnished. We had plenty of room for our food and belongings, and the kitchen was well equipped. We hope to return, maybe in the summer to really enjoy the lake.
Adorable cottage, beautiful outdoor space and neighbors were super nice!
Everything was more beautiful than pictures! Super clean too😀 It rained our first two days we were able to sit out side under the covered porch. We meet neighbors on both sides of this property and they were so nice and personable. We Brought our boat and Mimosa landing was right down the road . We celebrated 2 birthdays and had a amazing time on Lake James! The Lindenbergs, Greensboro,NC

Perfect mountain/lake getaway
Our family had a wonderful week! The house was very clean and comfortable. We loved the outside living space, we enjoyed ever meal there under the cover. We will definitely be going back!!
Wonderful Vacation Spot
Our family (two adults, three children) had a terrific vacation on Lake James. The setting is peaceful and tranquil and offered us a relaxing getaway. The cabin has amazing architecture and was just the perfect size for us. The cabin was spotlessly clean and well-appointed and stocked with everything we needed for our stay and a beautiful view too. The outdoor living space was awesome for relaxing, eating, and watching the children play. But the best part of our stay was being out on the water together. The lake is lovely, and we enjoyed kayaking, tubing, and swimming. I definitely and without hesitation would recommend staying at this cabin, and I look forward to the next time we can get away to Lake James.
Lake James is very close to area attractions such as Grandfather Mountain, Blowing Rock, Linville Falls and Caverns, Pisgah National Forest and the Linville Gorge, Biltmore House in Asheville, and Tweetsie Railroad Theme Park in Blowing Rock. We are closest to Morganton, NC which is a richly developing town with local shops, many artist in photography, paint, clay, and iron. There are restaurants and breweries downtown, as well as several parks including a water feature for kids. We have a Catawba River Greenway Trail that winds along the Catawba River and features restaurants, bicycle rentals, and more parks with a zip lining, clmbing tower, and climbing web. We are about an hour away from Asheville and a little over an hour from Charlotte.
