If you're looking for a mountain/lake getaway, our peaceful retreat has something for everybody: outdoor adventure and fishing, quaint mountain towns to explore, and R & R in a beautiful setting. Days spent in our home are guaranteed to take you back to a simpler time and rejuvenate your spirit.
Our house overlooks spectacular Lake Logan. It is on North Carolina 215, a National Forest Service Heritage Scenic Byway which climbs alongside a beautiful stretch of the upper West Fork of the Pigeon River towards the Blue Ridge Parkway. Lake Logan is a crystal clear mountain gem which lies in a pristine valley. Our secluded house is currently only one of four buildings on our side of the lake and sits on a 40 acre tract subdivided into 4 lots and surrounded by forest service land. We share our road and dock with three neighbors, only one of whom lives in town. We are also neighbors with the 300 acre Lake Logan Episcopal Center. Most of its campus is just up the road from us. Part of their property includes 5 cabins across the lake from us which provide reassurance that we're not totally isolated. Once an exclusive retreat for Champion Paper Company executives, Lake Logan, a 90 acre lake, is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes on the East coast and is completely surrounded by forest service land. Motorized boats are prohibited. So come soak up the serenity of God’s glorious gifts in this mountain sanctuary. Watch the sun set from the dock on Lake Logan after a day of fishing. The lake offers excellent fishing for trophy trout and bass, bluegill, crappie and perch. It is only open to guests of the conference center and us. You can relax on our covered porch, in the hot tub, or or one of two oversized sofas in the living room and enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book free from distractions. Children will enjoy swimming from the dock and paddling around in one of several boats we own. We've enjoyed spotting wildlife from the cabin and on the lake. Three pairs of bald eagles have taken up residence at the lake. We've seen deer, wild turkeys, otter, beaver, and an occasional bear. The lake is also home to geese, ducks, kingfishers, and heron.
The Blue Ridge Parkway, the Sunburst swimming hole and a multitude of waterfalls and hiking trails are right next door. We're minutes from the highest points along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Extensive shopping & dining are only 15 minutes away in downtown Waynesville. The historic Biltmore House and eclectic Asheville are only 40 minutes away. Perfect for a romantic getaway, celebration of a special day, or a family vacation.

Hardwood floors throughout, one wood burning and two gas fireplaces, covered porch with hot tub and grill, and large firepit with seating area close to the deck.

The large living area is a combination kitchen/dining/living room and has great views of the wooded areas surrounding the home. The living room is accented with a stone fireplace and two comfortable sofas. It also includes a large, flat screen tv/DVD/blue ray/stereo system. Sliding glass doors open onto porch that overlooks the lake. From there you can view activity on the lake or grill your favorite foods.
