Overview

About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6adults or 8w/kids)

Please CC me your request via email because I don't always get nitified of a request from this site (especially if you need immediate response). COME IN, TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND PULL UP A SEAT ON THE DECK OVER-LOOKING THE MOST SERENE LAKE IN WESTERN NORTH CAROLINA (MY OPINION) AND SIP YOUR FAVORITE BEVERAGE.

PLEASE NOTE: If you Google Earth the address of the house, it will show the lake as 2/3 empty. 2 years ago we had a crack in the dam and had to empty the lake to repair it. It just happened to be the time Google took the picture!!! I promise, there is plenty of water in the lake!

NO POLYESTER IN THESE SHEETS! JUST BRING YOUR TOOTHBRUSH AND A CHANGE OF CLOTHES AND YOU ARE ALL SET. FORGOT SHAMPOO? IT'S THERE. FORGOT YOUR RAZOR? IT'S THERE. FORGOT YOUR GOLF CLUBS? CAN'T HELP YOU, SORRY.

GOLF!!!!!! THREE BEAUTIFUL GOLF COURSES WITHIN 3-5 MINUTES OF THE HOUSE. WATERFALLS, TENNIS, HIKING, TUBING, BIKING AND MORE. ONE STATE PARK AND ONE NATIONAL FOREST WITHIN 15 MINUTES OF THE HOUSE!

THIS HOME IS 15 MINUTES FROM QUAINT DOWNTOWN HENDERSONVILLE AND BREVARD (MUSIC CENTER). ONE HOUR FROM GREENVILLE AND ONE HOUR FROM HIGHLANDS.

REMEMBER, THIS IS A LAKE HOUSE, NOT THE BILTMORE. IF YOU WANT MARBLE, GRANITE, AND VENETIAN PLASTER, YOU ARE IN THE WRONG NECK OF THE WOODS, LITERALLY!

About Karen Donnelly

HI

MY NAME IS KAREN AND I LIVE IN SOUTH FLORIDA WHEN I AM NOT IN THE MOUNTAINS ENJOYING ALL THE AREA HAS TO OFFER. I AM A REALTOR AND A TENNIS PRO (THOUGH IT HURTS MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY). I HAVE 2 GROWN SONS AND I WORK ALL THE TIME! THAT IS WHY I LOVE TO GET AWAY TO HENDERSONVILLE AND ENJOY THE OUTDOORS.

Karen Donnelly purchased this chalet in 2005

Why Karen Donnelly chose Smoky Mountains

LOVE EVERYTHING THE MOUNTAINS HAVE TO OFFER.

What makes this chalet unique

THIS HOUSE IS SITUATED ON A SMALL SWIMMING/FISHING LAKE. THE BEAUTY OF IT IS THE VIEW! YOU CAN ALSO SEE ALMOST ALL THE WAY AROUND THE LAKE IF YOU NEED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE CHILDREN BECAUSE MY HOUSE SITS UP HIGH. THERE IS A ROAD THAT GOES AROUND THE LAKE FOR WALKING AND IT IS JUST SUCH A HAPPY PLACE AND I HAVE THE BEST NEIGHBORS!!!!

Great vacation stop

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying at this property. We had everything we could have asked for. Plenty of room for 3 adults and 3 kids. It was so peaceful looking out at the lake from the balcony. My son even caught some fish around the lake.

We did trips to the Pisgah and Dupont forests, Looking glass falls and Sliding rock falls. My grandkids, growing up in Florida, had never seen the mountains, so it was a very special time for me. They loved it and want to go back.

I would recommend this property for anyone wanting a very nice place to stay. Centrally located to a lot of things to do.

Would certainly consider returning again someday.

Thanks again Karen.

Heather and caleb's wedding

  • 5 of 5

We found the house very clean and comfortable. The setting was amazing . Only 1 mile to my relatives and wedding . The lake was beautiful and relaxing . There was a broken light at the path leading to the front entrance and the lock box was broken so left the key in the house and door open .

Comfortable but dated home

  • 3 of 5

We had a three day stay in this comfortable but dated home during early June. This is a 3 story lake front home, well equipped with all the necessaries. The living area on the main floor is spacious, opening on to a large deck overlooking a small lake. Very quiet and serene. The lake itself is for swimming and fishing and seems clean and safe. The furnishings were comfortable but dated. Has three bedrooms and sleeps six, with a large lounge couch in the bottom floor that could be used for sleeping. Second and third bedrooms are small. Kitchen is well equipped, plenty of linens. Downstairs bath room and shower very small. All in all fine for a weekend get-away.

Great place to stay! Great area!

  • 5 of 5

Great girls weekend. Beautiful view of the lake. Lots of things to do in the area. DuPont state park had beautiful waterfalls. Asheville school of massage was a great way to relax as well as the spa at Grove Park Inn.
