Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

Fern Bank Cottage is so special our guests often call us upon check-in to let us know how awed they are! This is a gorgeous mountain home nestled in the trees and close to the lake. Every bedroom and living area in this comfortable cottage is graced with astonishing lake views.

This fabulous vacation home accommodates several couples or families with its many bedrooms and living areas, yet is perfect and romantic for two. Decorated with an air of rustic elegance, the main level of the cottage provides all any guest could desire, with cathedral ceilings, a great kitchen, Master Suite with a jacuzzi and fireplace, hardwood floors throughout, and two wood burning stone fireplaces.

In addition to the main level, Fern Bank Cottage has both an upper and lower level that can comfortably accommodate many guests. The upper level has two lovely bedrooms, one with a king size bed and one with twins. Both, of course, have a view of the lake. The lower level has three more bedrooms, two that are perfect for couples and one that is a bunkroom (kids love it!). Towels, luxurious linens, laundry facility and gas grill are provided.

Lakeside decking includes open, covered and screened porches that allow for outside dining and reading in any weather.

A gentle walk to the lake leads to a private dock on deep water with a canoe included for exploring the lake and its waterfalls. Our lake is quiet and pristine making it wonderful for swimming, fishing, or boating.

We are just a short drive to both Cashiers and Highlands where you will find lovely shops and restaurants. The area is called "the land of waterfalls" and provides for many great hikes and drives to waterfalls and breathtaking vistas.

Lakefront Luxury

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several cottages on Lake Glenville but none can match what Bernie has accomplished at Fern Bank. The cottage is well laid out for a single couple or a larger group. The views of the lake are outstanding from the numerous porches. The furnishings at Fern Bank are simply magnificent. The kitchen is well equipped and almost anything you can imagine to prepare a fine meal is provided. If you prefer there are numerous restaurants nearby in Cashiers and Highlands. Although Fern Bank can accommodate a large group the rooms retain the intimacy of a finely appointed cabin. The first trip down the driveway may be intimidating but after a few trips it is quite manageable under normal conditions. In short, we highly recommend Fern Bank to anyone wishing to experience the beauty and serenity of Lake Glenville and the surrounding mountains.

On a scale of one to ten.... TWELVE!

WOW!! Fern bank was utterly amazing. It was like stepping into the pages of one of those gracious living magazines. Between the wonderful home and the incredible views of the lake, we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation spot. My family had a fantastic time. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment we had there and didn't want to leave. We're already talking about renting the place again when we have our family vacation in 2011.

Bernie, the owner, has a true gift for decorating in such a way as to create a warm and inviting space where visitors can really feel at home. Thank you SO much for putting together and maintaining such a luxurious place.
