About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with Lake Views (Sleeps 6)

Come and experience the magnificent magic of a waterfront cabin with your own dock right in the Western North Carolina's Smoky Mountains! The southern exposure will ensure bright warm sunny days and a beautiful view of the sunset in the evenings. The lake has numerous waterfalls and you can rent different watercraft at a marina nearby to explore the lake or enjoy different water sports.

Visit the traditional, quaint nearby towns of Highlands and Cashiers while staying on the lake. Lake Glenville at 3800 feet elevation has 26 miles of shoreline, is 4.5 miles long and over 1,460 acres is spring fed by 5 mountain streams. You can enjoy the refreshing 72 degree water while jet skiing, tubing, fishing and boating. The glistening shoreline of Lake Glenville has waterfalls, a Christmas tree farm, and beautiful picturesque homes.

This waterfront, A-frame vacation cabin has the master bedroom (with a extremely comfortable king size bed) and bath downstairs. Upstairs in the oversized loft are 4 twin beds, (includes a pull out trundle) and a full second private bath.

You can take your steaming, hot coffee outside in the screened-in porch to curl up with a good book or go out on the large, adjacent deck to enjoy the view. The cabin has a fireplace, wireless internet, Direct TV and all the amenities of home.

The dock will provide hours of entertainment. You can bring your own boat or rent one from the nearby marina and step right from your dock onto your boat. The are jet ski davits to hook up your jetski. We even provide two kayaks on the dock for your use.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for our family vacation to the mountains. The cabin had everything we needed. EVERYTHING! Only thing we brought was our clothes. There wasn't plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, some spices, and laundry detergent. Kitchen was well stocked.

The lake view was so nice to look at from the deck. Now the walk to the lake was downhill with a lot of steps. Which means the walk back up was a workout. The deck has a table with four chairs, two lounge chairs, two kayaks with flotation devices.

We had six and fit comfortably. The kids(all teens) slept in the loft and had their own bathroom. The king size bed in the master bedroom was heavenly.

We ate dinner and breakfast in the screened in porch just about everyday.

Absolutely loved our week here!

Cozy cabin in a serene location with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The cabin itself is cozy and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, and a large open living and dining space. It was perfect for our family to celebrate Thanksgiving together. The location is spectacular with its expansive view of Lake Glenville from a beautiful deck. There's also a dock right on the lake where even in late November we enjoyed sitting in the sun. A wonderful house in a wonderful place!

Great Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is clean, comfortable, and well appointed. The location is convenient to restaurants, gas, and groceries. We visited in mid November. The nights were very cool. The heat and fireplace worked just fine and kept us comfortable. WiFi was also fine and the TV package was good.

We were able to kayak using the owners' two sit on top kayaks. Paddles and life preservers were included. The lake is clean and very peaceful. Hardly any boat traffic.

The trip from the cabin to the dock/lake is steep and a bit long. There are steps with a handrail. If you have mobility issues, this property would not be a good choice. If you are in shape and plan ahead, the distance to the lake is not a problem. You just need to be sure to bring everything on the first trip. We are in our late 60's and managed just fine.

Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay and will definitely look to return.

This property is in a lovely small neighborhood right on the lake with its own very large dock extending right into the lake. Bring your own boat and tie it up on your own dock. It is also easy access into town, approximately 6 miles from crossroad in downtown Cashiers.
