About The Owner

Our family loves spending time at Lake Glenville. Coming from Florida, we love the beautiful scenery and comfortable summer weather high in the mountains. There are so many great hikes and waterfalls to see in the nearby area. We hope that you will love it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Lake Glenville

Our house is located in a peaceful and quiet setting. Our previous guests always rave about the fabulous views of Lake Glenville and the surrounding mountains. In addition, Lake Glenville is the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi, with pristine waters and majestic surrounding mountains. It is a perfect lake for swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, waterskiing or tubing. You can rent a boat at the nearby marina (2 miles away) and explore the shoreline and beautiful waterfalls that provide water to the lake.

What makes this house unique

You will fall in love with the stunning view of Lake Glenville and mountains from this peaceful home. Guests are welcome to swim at the private Tator Knob beach area, just minutes from the house. The location is convenient to Cashiers shopping, dining, and special events (just 6 miles away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Doug & Louise,

Hickory House was just what we needed to welcome spring. Our stay was much to short but every day was pure gift. The weather was beautiful and we sat for hours in the sunlight and enjoyed the hummingbirds and the beauty of the lake. The house is warm and inviting and had such a hosptitable feeling. We could tell you wanted us to feel warmly welcomed, even a bottle of wine waiting for us, everything we needed available. We will be back, hopefully for a longer stay.

Million dollar view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hickory House with another couple and our dog, Sadie. What a nice house with a view we could not wait to get back to every night. The house is clean, stocked well, and the owner was so easy to work with. Meals on the deck overlooking the lake and mountains were perfect. The location was convenient to local shops, resturants, and Lake Glenville. Very quiet and private neighborhood. We would definitely come back to this house again.

Beautiful view of Lake Glenville!

  • 5 of 5

Hickory House was the perfect mountain get-away. The owners were very attentive and have really thought of everything to make Hickory House feel like a home away from home. We especially enjoyed cooking in the well- stocked kitchen and eating on the deck overlooking the beautiful views of the lake. We would definitely recommend Hickory House and hope to return again soon!!

Spectacular views from a beautiful home! Great location near Cashiers.

  • 5 of 5

Hickory House was a fabulous home for a mountain get away! The owners were great to work with us and arrange everything on short notice. The house was immaculate, and the views are pretty spectacular. Beautiful sunsets made us want to eat dinner in and enjoy the view. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. Great location to see all the beautiful waterfalls in the area. We would definitely recommend this home and hope to come back! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Fabulous home in the mountains!!! Grab it if you can!!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we set foot into this home we knew how wonderful our vacation week would be. The house is spotlessly clean with a brand new kitchen totally equipped for anything you may want or need. What more can you ask for? The view from the sliding doors to the balcony overlooks Lake Glenville with no obstruction. There is another closed balcony area with the same view to eat your meals or watch the rain on the Lake. A hummingbird feeder allowed us to watch the beautiful birds come and go during our stay. We ate dinner every night at home because we did not want to miss the amazing sunsets over the Lake from our balcony. Walking in the neighborhood gave us the exercise we needed up and down to the Lake. ( It got easier as the days went by). We loved the neighborhood of Tator Knob!! It is easy to reach the town of Cashiers which has many restaurants to choose from. We loved Ren Devu and Micas....great settings and dog friendly! You must get some local goat cheese from Cashiers Market along with their home made ice cream and wonderful pie assortments to enjoy while relaxing at home late in the evenings. We hiked White side mountain and walked around Lake Fairfield a few times... There are so many choices in the area for outdoor activity it is hard to choose. We loved Hickory House so much we are thinking about purchasing in the area, but until then, we hope to be back enjoying this wonderful home on Lake Glenville. Thank you to the owners who put so much thought and effort into making this the best vacation home!!

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have been leasing properties in the Glenville/Cashiers area for the last 5 years and Hickory House is our new favorite! Spacious, quiet and comfortable with a fantastic lake view, from every room inside and out, that will make you stop and say, “WOW!” The home is very well stocked and we love the open kitchen/dining/great room and being all together without feeling too crowded. We loved it so much we booked a return trip in August before we finished our stay in April! The home is convenient to town with lots and lots of area activities. The owners are wonderful and we are all so lucky that they share this beautiful place...Thanks again!

Our Favorite Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth year renting Hickory House and we look forward to our stay here as it is a little bit of heaven. Since 2011, we have watched the owners upgrade the house and the pictures do not lie. It is spacious, quiet, and offers as much privacy as you want. But what is really special is the view of the lake..from the bedrooms, the living/dining room, the porch or the deck. This year two of our friends came with us and they have heard us describe Hickory House over the years. When they walked in the front door and saw that view, they turned and said, "Now we get it." Hickory House is convenient to restaurants, shopping, hiking, sightseeing, etc. Yet when you go down that drive you are definitely away from it all and can just breathe and relax. We appreciate the owners sharing this amazing home with us and look forward to our stay in 2016!

Owner's Response: One of the unexpected pleasures that we never expected buying our house was getting to know the return guests and their enjoyment staying year after year. So many of our dates are now taken up by repeat guests. We appreciate their loyalty and how well they take care of the house while there.
