Gorgeous views and great home!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home with multiple members of our family, including 2 children and were very happy with the location, furnishings and privacy of each bedroom. We swam almost every day off the dock and while it was a hike back up from the swim, it was manageable. The evenings were spent on the back porch overlooking the beautiful water and mountains beyond. We spent lots of time on the water and also exploring nearby trails and towns. I highly recommend the home but make sure all of those wanting to go for a morning/afternoon swim have the stamina to make it back up the steep steps. Several in our party decided not to make the trek and missed out on the wonderful swims. Also, I highly endorse the owner/manager--Bruce quickly got back to me on my many questions and was helpful in pointing out places to go!

Beautiful home with lake and mountain view

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a home that combines the best of both worlds you'll find it here with the impressive view of the lake and up into the mountains. There was plenty of room for 8 people comfortably. It's a fairly short drive to go and enjoy the splendor of Linville gorge, falls and caverns. Something not to be missed.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at this lovely home in early October, 2017 and we absolutely loved the house...the layout, the view, the amenities, the cleanliness and most importantly the great responsiveness of the owner Bruce. We loved the dock and wished we had a boat to explore the beautiful lake with, but it was nice catching some rays and enjoying the peacefulness of the beautiful surroundings. We loved all of the wildlife! We say many deer, an armadillo, several eagles, a lizard, a harmless rat snake, and many more beautiful birds. Lake James is absolutely beautiful and this house is perfect! We would definitely stay there again. Thank you!

Beautiful house, breath taking view

  • 4 of 5

Each summer, my husband and I enjoy spending time with our adult children and their families. This year, we had 10 people, including the newest member, our 9 month old grandson. This house was perfect for us. There are 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, a large dinner table and a comfortable back porch with an awesome view of the lake and the mountains. The kitchen was large enough to accommodate several people preparing food. We cook dinner every night and ate together at the dinner table.

The kids enjoyed having the downstairs area for watching TV and playing games. There was a ping pong table, which was a family favorite, and a downstairs refrigerator/wet bar. Since our grandson is walking, we were thankful to find a baby gate at the house.

We rented a pontoon boat from a local marina. The dock at the house easily fit the boat, it was surrounded by 3 sides making entering and exiting the boat safe for everyone. We spent a great deal of time at the lake, either boating, swimming or fishing. The swimming was wonderful, the water was warm (our vacation was in August) and there was a ladder from the dock into the water.

The only difficult part was that the lake was approximately 140 steps down from the house. This required us to plan our trips and make sure we took everything with us to the water. Fortunately we had several strong men who could carry kayaks, cools down for us. If someone had knee/mobility issues, they would have trouble getting to/from the lake. Personally, I didn't mind the wooden steps; however, prior to the steps there was a gradual slope covered with mulch and occasional stone steps. I found these more difficult to navigate, especially after the rain.

We would definitely return to this house, even with the long steps to the lake. The spacious, comfortable house was worth the walk to/from the lake and we didn't have anyone with mobility issues.
