About The Owner

We are Matt & Bhavana. A family with young kids and we enjoy vacations that get us away and give us time together. Our kids just love the water and their most memorable vacations that they look forward to have been at lake, beach or in the mountains. We are in Charlotte, North Carolina

The Owner purchased this house in 2017

Why The Owner chose Nebo

As we mentioned our kids have loved being by the water. Matt grew up on Lakes and when we visited Lake James and saw how beautiful and clean the water was, how huge this lake was and the great hiking and fishing in the area, we fell in Love with it!

Being parents of young kids, it was also important for us to be in a place not too far off from having access to good organic groceries, shops and great restaurants for nice evening out. Morganton the town close by has all of this. They have 3 amazing farm to table restaurants with a great selections of Vegan and Vegetarian options. And we have this really neat Winery near the lake that is a great place to take the family and enjoy live music and wine tasting.

A month later, we found this amazing private home with a lot of character on the lake!

And we knew we wanted to share this experience with other families as well.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this house with it's unique style, clean and open floor plans, large kitchen (Love to Cook!), floor to ceiling windows line the side of the house facing the lake! The private dock with such a beautiful view of the lake where we can have a breath taking view of the sunrise and we knew it was our perfect home!

Most importantly, we have a large extended family and friends that we love to get together with. And we needed a place large enough to comfortably host 20 people. This huge home with the large open floor plans was just it!

And being a person that loves to entertain and likes to plan, the house is stocked with everything you need to come and just relax!

House is updated and spacious enough for 3 families to stay comfortably. Also very well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 families in our group and we were all able to spread out and have our own space. The house had every amenity we needed and the view of the lake is beautiful. The owners were great to work with - would definitely rent this home again!
