About Jo Hart

Jo & Doug have three adult children and two grandchildren.

Doug is a Psychotherapist whose hobbies are guitar playing and kayaking. Jo is a Personal Banker and most enjoys spending time with our grandchildren who live nearby.

We live in Atlanta and take advantage of every opportunity to come up to our beloved Lakewood Lodge.

Jo Hart purchased this house in 2002

Why Jo Hart chose Cullowhee

It was truly 'love at first sight' the first time we drove through this area on a trip. The natural beauty was awe-inspiring, and we vowed then to live in this 'heaven on earth' someday when we retire.

After receiving the Grand Opening annoucement from Trilliium in 1997, we jumped on the chance to come up. We were impressed with the award-winning community design, the extensive Trillium amenities and the integrity of the developer. Our lot was selected due to its privacy afforded by the private island opposite our lot.

Our custom home was designed especially with rental guests and our friends & family in mind. The bedrooms all have their own baths and are separated from each other for privacy. The Lover Level is an independent 'suite' of rooms, complete with full Kitchen, Living, Dining and two Bedrooms. The furnishings were selected with the help of a local designer and construction was completed in 2002.

We've enjoyed our many rental guests over the years. Please see the entire Guest Comments listing on our website and you'll see why.

What makes this house unique

We love the local Cashiers area outdoor activities such as hiking Whiteside Mountain or the many waterfall trails and, of course, paddling on Lake Glenville.

The fabulous Trillium Fitness Center is used almost every day we're up here. The views are much lovelier than our gym at home!

We particularly enjoy sharing our wonderful home with family and friends. Our grown children love the amenities so much, especially the Golf & Fishing, that they jump at every chance to come up. Our little grandson likes the nature trails in the neighborhood. Our children also like the privacy of having the Lower Level all to themselves.

We almost always entertain our out-of-town guests here. The vast array of amenities and things to do is delightful for any guest. And we like the privacy of having our own 'space' in the Main Level.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family of four and my sister-in-law and her husband -- 6 of us in all -- recently enjoyed a wonderful week stay at Lakewood. The owners are so gracious and accommodating. It was obvious within the first day of our visit that they are focused on attracting repeat visitors -- every possible detail has been taken care of, from a well-stocked kitchen to emergency flashlights to appliances that are all in good working order. The view of Lake Glennville was beautiful from the back deck, and the peace and quiet was wonderful. It all added up to a fantastic vacation. I would recommend Lakewood Lodge to any family (or two families) who are looking for a relaxing vacation with plenty of surrounding activities (fishing, swimming, boating, hiking, or simply reading on the back deck).

Two thumbs up!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six spent a wonderful Christmas holiday in this beautiful home on Lake Glenville. The view was very nice (lake and mountains) and the accommodations were great. Beds were comfortable and the home was well equipped with everything we needed. The floorpan is ideal for larger families or two couples as each floor has two bedrooms, kitchen and deck access. We want to come back in the summer to experience the lake activities. You can't go wrong with this home!

Fabulous mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

This meticulously cared for home is so welcoming and the setting is beautiful. Our family enjoyed this 5 star residence for our Thanksgiving celebration. We loved the local hikes, early morning and afternoon respites on the decks and playing games near the fireplace. Great getaway.

Beautiful scenery and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four couples has rented in various locations in Cashiers and Trillium. This was our first stay at Lakewood Lodge. It has to be on the top of the list! It has everything you could ask for in a rental home, and Jo, the owner, is so helpful and concerned that everything is just right! We decided that the view from the deck was probably the best we had ever enjoyed in Cashiers. You can't go wrong with this house!!
