Beautiful Lake House Retreat - nestled in NC mountains and forest
An intimate, mountain, lake house ideal for couples or personal retreat. Floor to ceiling windows showcase nature’s beauty all year with complete privacy. Prepare Thanksgiving dinner in a fully provisioned kitchen or slip out for a romantic, gourmet meal at Eeseola Lodge. Step outside into beautiful hiking trails, an 18 hole golf course or trout fishing. Short drive to ski resorts, the AT, or for a spa treatment and amazing massage. You will return home renewed from a place of deep peace.
A Sabbath Invitation… Our lovely, little lake house in the mountains of North Carolina has a beauty and stillness that fills you with peace. A family spent Thanksgiving trout fishing in the nearby river, a couple celebrated their anniversary with massages at Eeseoloa lodge, and a pastor settled into stillness for a weeklong silent retreat. We hope this will continue to happen. What occurs in a space matters. You can feel it when a space has been prayed in for years and years. That’s why chapels, cathedrals and sanctuaries feel so sacred to us. We want others to join us in praying, playing, resting, loving – Sabbathing – in this space. So, please consider our invitation… Will you join us in filling this little, beautiful lake house with loving energy? The mountains are covered in blooming rhododendrons in June. The air is cool and dry in the summer. The lake has a small beach for swimming and a beautiful golf course. Will you take some time here to reconnect with your partner? Spend a week in silent retreat? Use it as a home base to visit NC waterfalls, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville or the Appalachian Trail? Fish for trout in the nearby river? Plan a girlfriends getaway? Golf? We believe the time you spend here will deeply bless you. If you choose to accept this Sabbath invitation here are some details…

About Greg & Mary
The Rev. Mary Laymon Mary has been pastoring for 20 years.. Her passion is helping people of all ages hear the voice of the holy within them so that they may experience the healing power of Love. Mary leads retreats and pilgrimages, offers Spiritual Direction and helps execute the vision for their non-profit Farm in Cincinnati, Tikkun Farm. If you’re looking for a farm getaway, complete with farm breakfast, alpaca petting and chickens, check out our Air BnB in Cincinnati! Mary’s favorite sacred places include the island of Iona off the coast of Scotland, the Celtic monastic ruin, Skellig Michael on an island off the coast of Ireland, and Assateague, the barrier island off the coast of Maryland where she’s been camping with her family every summer since she was five years old. She married Greg York 5 years ago in Ireland and is the mother of 18 year old John – musician, writer and college freshman. Mary enjoys gardening, cooking, traveling, camping and hiking out in God’s “Big Book” – the Celtic way of speaking about creation. But she really loves helping others hear the quiet and persistent voice of God speaking love to us. Greg York After a 25 year career at Procter & Gamble, Greg retired from corporate life and began creating another kind of life – centered around restoration and repurposing. Greg repurposes his skills as a manager and strategic planner mentoring young entrepreneurs and supporting the growth of Center City Collision’s “body shop Abbey” a place where cars as well as auto body workers experience healing & restoration. Through his capacity to see beauty where others see ruin he creates spaces for community living in the homes he’s wonderfully restored. Rather than invest in stocks, he invests in neighborhoods, restoring a “third place” cafe in an impoverished community where urban farmers make a living from their garden feeding their neighbors. Greg restored this little lake house and it reflects his craftsmanship for creating beauty.
Greg & Mary purchased this House in 2006

A True Getaway
Me and my wife go up to these mountains every year for our wedding anniversary. We are so glad we picked here to stay because it was right around the corner from EVERYTHING. If you've been in the mountains you know that is a good thing. Our last day a bald eagle sent us on our way just in the tree behind the house. Fireplace is just a turn of a knob away. It was PERFECT for me and my wife. Absolutely Perfect!!
We absolutely loved everything about this lake house, we were wanting something out of the middle of the city but easy to get everywhere and this is exactly what we got! We went to grandfather mountain, Boone, banner elk, and blowing rock. The best part was waking up to a lake front view, wish the weather wasn't so cold so we could have used the porch! We will definately be going back! :)
It was great to have you visit and so glad the Lakehouse worked out for you! We look forward to your next visit!
Great little house in a wonderful location.
The view was spectacular. I would recommend getting a slip cover for the rocking chair in the living room. It was a wonderful weekend retreat that's perfect for one couple.

With activities including golf, tennis, fishing, hiking, shuffleboard, bridge, billiards, and more, there is never a dull moment at Linville Land Harbor. In addition to the great weather, Linville Land Harbor is centrally located and offers easy access to major cities, airports, colleges, and hospitals. The beautiful, semi-private, member-owned mountain golf course boasts 18 challenging holes of tree lined fairways, manicured greens, and several streams and ponds. The course layout follows the natural contours of the land, which creates a perfect setting for a challenging golf course with exhilarating views. Two distinct nines test all aspects of a player’s game. Narrow tree-lined fairways require accuracy on both nines, but especially on holes 10 through 18. The fast, gently contoured greens require a keen eye and soft putting stroke.
