About the property

Lakefront cabin with amazing deep water, view of National forest, outdoor living

This house is one of the best spots on Lake Blue Ridge as we are in a protected area which makes it easy to swim, kayak, paddle board and enjoy the view! Quiet area with so many activities close by! Great spot all year round. Opportunity to rent a boat and put it at the private dock. Gradual slope from house to water just a few steps away! Very different than most of the dark cabins in the area as this house is full of light and not stuck in the trees. 2 living rooms, both with TV’s. This house has tons of character! Tons of activites, ping pong table, corn hole, hot tub, tons of games to play, rafts you can use in the summer, 1 indoor fireplace, 1 outdoor fireplace. Outdoor living area and covered dining area. Hammock on deck. Large eating area that can be extended to seat 12! Gas grill, paved driveway, with enough space for 3 cars for parking. Washer and dryer, Bosch appliances, modern kitchen well stocked with everything you need to cook meals. 2 different kayaks, 1 seats 1 person and 2nd one seats 2. Paddle board, which are available to rent from us for $40 for the duration of your stay. Great fishing off our dock, see picture attached!! There is an eagles nest nearby on the lake and we have often seen the eagle, catch fish in front of our dock!! Peaceful secluded area that is great for floating on rafts, or teaching people to ski and we are on the point so there is a lot of lake frontage!! Neighborhood is great for taking walks right out of the house!

About Melanie Wasilewski

We live in Atlanta and have 2 kids ages 8 and 9 and it has been great seeing them grow up loving to head to the lake!

Melanie Wasilewski purchased this house in 2004

Why Melanie Wasilewski chose Morganton

We purchased this home in 2004 because we loved the lake and felt that this piece of property was one of the best on the lake! We are tucked away off the main areas of the lake which make it easy to relax and your dock is not getting pounded by waves all day and is very peaceful. The cabin has a unique feel with lots of character as the family who built it used huge rocks as the walls in the basement. We have updated a lot of the home included the bathrooms and kitchen to make it have a rustic modern feel. This house has a gradual slope to the water and doesn't require many steps to get there compared to a lot of other houses on this lake.

What makes this house unique

The lake views are spectacular as there are not many trees blocking the view.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Hi Melanie

We absolutely loved the cabin. Five old fisherman were very comfortable for our week stay. We used the rec room off the car port to stor and work on our fly fishing tackle very convenient. The bathrooms were as clean as any 5 star hotel. The only thing missing was coat hooks by the entrance door to hang our hats and light coats. If we come back to the area next year you will be hearing from us

Great cabin! Perfect for us!!

  • 5 of 5

One of our favorite parts (bringing 7 kids ranging ages from 13 to 22), of the property was the lakefront exposure. The kitchen (and a few of the bedrooms), overlooked Lake Blue Ridge which was a great backdrop while fixing drinks/dinners. Traditionally we hit the downtown restaurants for nightly dinners but this time we tubed until nearly dark and grilled out afterwards. An added plus was access to the paddle board and kayaks; you’d think everybody would be waterlogged after a day whitewater rafting but as soon as we returned to the cabin, out on the kayaks exploring, they’d head! Finding a nice cabin to fit a large group on Lake Blue Ridge with a nice dock is not easy to find.

The flipped layout surprised us, you don’t usually head downstairs to a kitchen/living room and find the bedrooms on a walk-in level, but we quickly eased into “party downstairs, early to bed fishermen upstairs.” Having four bedrooms upstairs sleeping 9 of us worked out great and the extra bedroom downstairs was a nice bonus.

This was just a cool cabin, everything worked for us and we look forward to grabbing it next year.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect! We had 6 adults, 5 grand babies and friends and family stop by with their boats. We had perfect weather and we were in and out of the lake all day everyday! The dock was absolutely wonderful for accommodating relaxing, fishing, jumping off of - we rented the kayaks and paddle board from owner - it was awesome! The hot tub was an absolute hit as well!

Melanie was just great - quickly answered all of our crazy questions!

I absolutely recommend this lovely property! You will not be disappointed!

Beautiful home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our large family stayed at this gorgeous home on the lake for the weekend. We really enjoyed using the kayaks and paddle board to explore the lake! Melanie was wonderful to work with and she was very responsive to our questions. The home is comfortable and charming and a short walk to the lake. I especially enjoyed being able to see the kids at all times from the house/kitchen area. The home is located on a quiet part of the lake perfect for swimming, fishing and kayaking. We really enjoyed our stay!
