About the property

5,400 Sq. Ft., 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 14) Private, Convenient Location

Summer Cove rents from Friday to Friday between 6/15/2018 - 8/16/2018. 4-6 Day Rentals considered during most other periods.

Nestled among the oak and pine on the shore of Lake Glenville, is Summer Cove, one of the lake’s most magnificent properties. Extensive use of natural materials, as well as selected rustic and antique furnishings, give rise to the phrase “rustic elegance” that aptly describes this home.

The soaring 23-foot great room with its massive beamed ceiling, large stone fireplace and immense windows boasts magnificent vistas miles away. Great views of the lake and mountains can be seen as well from all bedrooms in the house.

You can't help but relax on the large covered porch with its outdoor fireplace. The expansive, westward facing open deck allows you to look out at the lake, mountains, sunsets and countless stars. The large fire pit near the shore, with it's surrounding stone amphitheater, is perfect for storytelling and s’mores. Sit on the large dock or you feel like being active, you can swim, float, kayak or rent a boat from the nearby marina.

A spacious chef’s kitchen awaits you with counter seating, fully stocked with virtually every amenity and appliance. The table in the beautiful dining room easily seats 8 and can accommodate up to 10 people (additional seating nearby). Should you decide to eat al fresco, the ample dining area on the covered porch provides a wonderful ambiance.

Located conveniently on the eastern side of the lake makes getting to most attractions in Cashiers and Highlands much more convenient. But many find they just want to sit on the deck and soak in the in breathtaking beauty!

No Smoking, Pets considered (additional fee required)

About Carolyn and Steve Knight

This property has been in my family for many decades. I have many wonderful childhood memories of times we spent at the original house just up the hill. My grandfather bought the surrounding 100+ acres of lakefront property in 1947 as the reservoir was being built (much of the original tract has now been sold but is still sparsely developed.) It's hard to imagine now, but this entire area (pre-lake ) was farmland. A small hamlet was once located down the lake from us (now 80 feet under water.) For over a thousand years before that, the Cherokee had lived on this land. We have found hundreds of arrowheads on the property over the years (a few are displayed in the foyer.)

We built Summer Cove in 2007 and it has been a work of love to watch it evolve toward perfection!

My husband Steve and I hail from Atlanta where Steve is a physician and I work at Emory University, after a 30 year career at SunTrust Bank.

Please let the property manager know if there is anything you need. We would appreciate it if you would sign our guest book in the kitchen and please post a positive review on VRBO!

This is a very special, relaxing place; we're sure you will agree. We are pleased to share it with you.


Why Carolyn and Steve Knight chose Glenville

Just a few reasons we love Summer Cove:

Majestic views , long walks through the surrounding forest land, cool evenings filled with the sounds of cicadas, taking naps on the porch swing or the hammock, evenings full of laughter with friends while sitting around the fireplace on the covered porch, being mesmerized by the breathtaking sunsets, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit, sitting on the dock in the early morning fog, listening to the geese and loons at dusk, gazing at the Milky Way from the open deck. Really, too numerous to list them all...

We love this magical place and hope you will as well!

What makes this house unique

Lakeside fire pit with amphitheater, 230' of shoreline. Extremely private with wooded lots on both sides. Large dock- perfect for large groups to relax on the water.

Being located on east side of lake makes access to local attractions in Cashiers and Highlands much more convenient and gives direct views of the spectacular sunsets from the main deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. The home was beautiful and well kept. Comfortable for all and the location was perfect.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Summer Cove was a wonderful, peaceful place for a family vacation. We had a large group of adults and kids and the house is big enough where everyone can still have their own space and privacy. We rented a boat and spent lots of time on the lake and just relaxing on the dock. The house comes with anything you might ever need for cooking and grilling. The fireplace and the fire pit were the center of activity most nights. We look forward to returning again in the future.
