(Please do not use the dock to attach water vehicles like pontoons or jetskis).

This comfortable, elegant custom home is incredibly relaxing and great for families or couples looking to getaway!

Some things to note: holidays (like Thanksgiving) require a 3 night minimum. Weekends for two nights is OK.

*Monthly reservations will require an increased deposit and a telephone interview to go over a few things.

About Brandon Whitesell

Outdoor adventurer and hoping share my special place in the mountains. I've been coming to Blue Ridge for over 12 years and know a lot of secrets in the area! I'd love to chat with you before your arrival!

Brandon Whitesell purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Brandon Whitesell chose Morganton

This property is in excellent physical condition and has a very authentic and unique setting. Custom designed and purchased last year, the vacation property, rarely used before recent listing, is in immaculate condition! Great for cooking and entertaining with guests.

What makes this cabin unique

This home will capture you once you step through the front door! It truly is a lot bigger than it looks and has private living rooms on each floor, which is great when having guests, so everyone has their private space. Leave the kids in the basement and enjoy a classic movie on the main level!

We loved this cabin! It's very spacious and beautifully decorated with super comfortable furniture. The back porch is wonderful with great views of the lake. The dock is close which makes it very easy to access. The kitchen is beautiful and fully loaded with everything you need. It was pretty cold when we went so we took advantage of the great supply of movies they had. It's about 15 minutes to Blue Ridge which has a fun downtown to browse though. And Angela was good to work with and even let us check in early which worked out great for us. This cabin worked out perfectly for our group of 7! We would definitely like to go back!! Thanks for sharing your home with us, Angela!

Cabin was beautiful and dock and lake access excellent

  • 5 of 5

We took entire family including adult children, teenagers and grandkids for 4 day weekend trip. Cabin has everything you could possible need provided. Rooms are large and spacious. Multiple levels and two living rooms and two screened in porches means there is plenty of room for multiple families. Dock has many chairs, kayak and can dock your own boat on both sides. My son brought his pontoon boat and we all enjoyed. Would recommend this property to anyone. Jeff & Cathy

This property far exceeded my expectations based on the photos I saw. It was larger and more deluxe.

  • 5 of 5

This home has a relaxed and dressed down vibe, but is done so with decorator touches and first quality furnishings. There is real art hanging on the walls, new kitchen appliances, comfortable and tasteful furniture throughout, and a huge screened in porch that pulled us all outside to read or chat or eat together everyday. Attention was given to providing all the extras, from paper products to quality linens to soaps and shampoos. The property is situated on the best part of lake blue ridge, near the open and largest part of the lake but in a sheltered cove where the water is calmer and the neighborhood is upscale. The cove was small enough to feel intimate but large enough to wakeboard on with our 18-year-old son. Across the lake is the Nantahala Forest, undeveloped and naturally wooded with no other homes. And the house was so CLEAN. I felt like a beloved visitor in a family home, not a tenant in a rental property. This was everything I dreamed it would be...and much more. I hesitate to submit this review for fear that the price will go up or it will become so popular, I won’t be able to find any available dates in the future!

This lakefront cabin was as wonderful as advertised. We enjoyed our long holiday weekend here.

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the Thanksgiving holiday at this beautiful and scenic cabin. We are from Florida and have family in GA. The family came up to the cabin for a great 10 person Thanksgiving dinner. The cabin had all the amenities I needed to prepare the meal and plenty of room for seating for dinner. We had plenty of room to play games while enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. The cabin has two fire places for which we took advantage of using due to the cool Thanksgiving weather. My GA relatives already asked us to make this a yearly event!! The Blue Ridge area is also beautiful. We spent Black Friday shopping at the quaint downtown shops of Blue Ridge and Saturday mountain biking and hiking in the Aska adventure area. I highly recommend this cabin. I imagine it is also a great place for the summer with plenty of lake activities!!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weekend up in Blue Ridge. This is the perfect location for a getaway with large group of family/friends. We loved our cabin - well appointed, clean and very pleasant. It has newly installed oven, refrigerator, microwave, super comfy beds, nice cozy living areas, charcoal grill on the porch, very well supplied with everything we needed .. we were a group of 8 adults and we all were very comfortable. The lake view from the cabin is serene.

Angela is the best! Thanks so much for making this vacation awesome . We truly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back. (oh, did I mention the meteor showers we watched from the deck? and the blue ridge scenic railway ride which was just 10-15 mins away? It was just amazing!)

PS: Wifi and a fire ring outside would have been good but nevertheless we had fun!

Quick Weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

I loved the place. It was a great cabin and a great location. We were a family of four and we definitely had plenty of room. The cabin was beautiful, clean and it had everything we needed except wifi. Which is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars. I would definitely stay here again.
