About Kim Latham

Kim and John live in New York and really enjoy getting away to Lake James to enjoy it's beautiful lake and mountain life. We cannot get there as often as we like, so we are renting it and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Kim Latham chose The Arbor

This property has a lot to offer inside and out. It has a spacious yard with a fire pit to enjoy as well as a double dock in a secluded corner of Lake James.

What makes this house unique

This Lake James home is in a gated community so it is very private. It not only is right on the Lake but has a beautiful view. It is so close to mountain activities whether you prefer outdoor activities such as hiking and climbing or sightseeing and shopping in close by Asheville or Blowing Rock.
