Great House on a Great Lake

  • 5 of 5

At the moment that Pat (the owner) personally delivers the bottle of local wine, you realize you're in a special place! This home is located on what I think is the best part of beautiful Lake James. It's a little less populated but a little closer to the only marina/restaurant on the lake. Beautiful sunsets and cool morning sunrises (even in August!) with the sun at your back help make this a wonderful place to spend some time. We'll definitely rent again!

Lake Life

  • 5 of 5

This house provides the perfect lake life experience!

We spent a full week here and enjoyed every minute. Beautiful views of the lake from inside the house and the semi wrap around porch. Swimming at the dock is fun and safe for children (children should always wear life jackets) and relaxing for adults. This is quiet section of the lake with little boat traffic and low wakes. Children and adults will be entertained by fishing from the dock especially in the evening. My seven year old son caught more than 10 fish one evening! Excellent spot for kayaking (bring your own or rent one from a local store/marina). The owner's personality is southern hospitality at its finest and my family is looking forward to renting this home for years to come.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Staying on this property is like a dream come true. Everything one needs for the perfect holiday/vacation exists here. Comfortable living, beautiful views, relaxing areas outside, and easy access to the water makes this a top notch place to stay while at Lake James. We came in June and loved it so much we came back in July. Once one stays here it will become their "forever" place to go. The owners of the property are nearby and very accommodating. If you need anything, they are quick, helpful and caring to make certain you have it. All one has to do is ask. The home is very clean, well equipped and peaceful. Just bring your belongings, your food and show up. We know we will be back very soon.

You won't want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

This place has it all, wonderful home, beautiful views, great lot with easy access to the lake and dock and anything you need to enjoy yourself. The custom house is extremely well decorated and very comfortable. If you can't relax here, you can't relax. The hosts live close by but give you all the privacy you desire but are there to help if asked. Now that we've stayed there I can't imagine staying anywhere else. I guarantee we will be back for many years to come!

If you've never been to Lake James it is gorgeous, clean and very deep. The fishing is tough; at least in August, but the views are breathtaking and the water smooth, so relaxation is the next best thing to lots of fish. Saw lots of folks out at night fishing but didn't try it myself.

Beautiful lakefront home

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent Thanksgiving week in this beautiful, immaculate home on Lake James. Easy access to the water so we rented a canoe for the week. The owner, Pat, was very accommodating and anxious to be sure we were happy! She even made sure the weather was great - in the 60's and sunny most of the week. Very convenient to many attractions. We climbed trails to several waterfalls, drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway, saw the elk herd in the Great Smokies, and canoed on beautiful Lake James.

Amazing Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of July and loved everything about the place. I had a friend from Pa. come visit and we went to the local Moose Club where we met a local man who will no doubt be a friend for years to come. We also had my 90 year old Father come and stay with his ladyfriend for 5 days and although getting to the dock and back was a challenge for him he enjoyed fishing off the dock and boat riding. The owner Pat is extremely personable, very hospitable and more then willing to do anything to please and accomodate. We have used VRBO for many summer vacations and have found that just like this place if you research and talk to the owner you will not be disappointed. My son and his family from Black Mountain actually rented this place for a week over the 4th of July and loved it as well. They left their boat for us to use BUT there is a pontoon available for rent if you so desire. The home is beautiful and tastefully decorated and immaculate. Thank you Pat for the wonderful visit and we look forward to coming again in the near future.
