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. After receiving the Grand Opening announcement 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 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. They especially love the Golf & Fishing, and the nature trails in the neighborhood. We almost always entertain our out-of-town guests here. The vast array of amenities and things to do is delightful for any guest.

Lakewood Lodge is absolutely beautiful. The location allows easy access to all the Trillium amenities while still being private and quiet. The house was immaculate, the kitchen is a dream and the view breathtaking. We played golf each day, grilled out each night and dined al fresco on the deck overlooking the lake. The Trillium links golf course, in my opinion, is the prettiest and best conditioned track in WNC. I highly recommend the Lakewood Lodge. We thought Jo was the perfect host. I'm sure you'll think so too.
This is the second time that we have stayed at Lakewood Lodge and
will not go to the area if we cannot stay at this house. The interiors
are lovely and the deck is wonderful overlooking Lake Glenville.
There's no better compliment than to want to come back to Lakewood Lodge again exclusively. Hope you can come back in the fall. The colorful foliage views are really spectacular!
Great Vacation Home
We enjoyed our week in this home. It was clean, well-equipped, and the most organized vacation home we have stayed in. Jo was great to work with.
I'm so glad you appreciated my organizational efforts. I'd love to have you come back soon!
Awesome place to stay.
Would highly recommend and go back again for sure. Wonderful place. Clean. New. Porch and view of the lake. Very quiet and relaxing.
I'd love to have you back again. The fall views of the lake are spectacular!
Awesome accommodations and view!!
We received 10” of snow during our stay and it was absolutely beautiful! The view of mountains and lake from the back deck is priceless.
It is a very nice house. Very peaceful.
