Beautiful house and amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation on Lake James. The house comfortably accommodated 10 people. The homeowner provided great restaurant recommendations and information about the nearby boat launches. It was a bit of a hike down to the dock so we usually packed to spend the day on the water. The lower deck provided shade and a place to rest while playing in the water. Wish there was seating though...luckily we had some camp chairs. The water was clean and warm. The lake had limited boat traffic especially during the week. Highly recommend this property and lake.

Beautiful mountain and lake views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the end of June and had a wonderful time. The house is spacious, well maintained, clean and has famtastic views of Lake James and the mountains. We ate every meal out on the deck so that we could enjoy the views - although the lake side of the house is all floor to ceiling windows so you could enjoy the views from inside as well. We don't own a boat so we explored the area and found Black Mountain (lovely mountain town, golf) and Catawba Falls (good hike to waterfalls) to be about 1/2 hour away, Asheville is about 45 minutes away. The homeowner let us use his kayaks which were great fun for all. As far as the stairs to the lake are concerned - forewarned is forearmed. They are steep and long but we all managed to get up and down several times a day, some of us stopping to catch our breath more often than others! I think to make the very most of your vacation at this home it would be good to either have your own boat or make arrangements to rent a boat through the homeowner or perhaps at the marina. The homeowner was very easy to work with and provided lots of brochures, maps and other helpful info at the house to ease in exploring the area. We highly recommend this rental.

Fabulous 50th Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my 50th Birthday here with small family group and had a wonderful time! House is beautiful, clean and comfortable and lake is clear, deep and quiet. So enjoyed breakfast on deck with breathtaking mountain views followed by afternoons of tubing, wake boarding and skiing with our boat. Dock for boat and our kayaks was super convenient, if a bit of a steep hike! A great place to stay to enjoy the lake, nearby state park with hike/bike trails and short distance from Asheville.

Wonderful July 4th Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 and visitong parents enjoyed staying here over the week of July 4th. We brought our boat and had a great time skiing, tubing and touring Lake James. The house was beautiful, clean and in a great location near Marion and directly across the lake from a new marina (3 minutes by boat) with a good restaurant. The descent to the boat dock is very steep, but our parents who suffer from bad backs (multiple surgeries) and rheumatoid arthritis were able to make the trip multiple times per day.

The dock is ideally located on deep water near the ski course.

We got to experience a great fireworks show on the lake on July 4th.

We hope to travel back there soon!

Wonderful fall vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our early fall week at Lake James was perfect. It was unusually warm so we were able to tour the Lake by boat. The leaves were just beginning to change color, so our drive to Linville falls and back along the parkway was beautiful. We chose the house for the views and the beauty of the house itself. The property exceeded our expectations in both regards. The description and photos are helpful, but the experience itself was even better. The home was extremely clean and well-maintained, the owner helpful, and it was altogether a wonderful rental. The steps to the lake that have been mentioned in previous reviews are important to consider if elderly individuals or small children are in your party. But we found them to be good exercise. We highly recommend this property and hope to return.
