Only 30-45 minutes away, visit Grandfather Mtn, Blowing Rock, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Gorge (the grand canyon of the Carolinas) , waterfalls and caverns, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure (where Dirty Dancing was filmed) or go snow skiing in the winter- several popular ski resorts abound. The nearby towns of Nebo, Marion and Morganton offer all conveniences and supplies.

About The Owner

Our family loves the scenery that NC and especially this Lake House provides! We love the topography, mountain views, and fresh water lake. We love the fact that this house and location provide such diverse activities for all seasons.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Nebo

The location puts you right in the middle of so many activities, and the lake is relaxing and fun. The double decker dock and clear fresh water beg you to stay and float, kayak and boat.

What makes this house unique

Private, wooded yard, huge porch and dock lets you enjoy seclusion, while the lake is bustling with activity during peak summer. The double decker dock provides family fun- jumping in the lake, lounging, picnicking, and watersports. Dine on the upper level, complete with picnic table. When you want to venture out, you can do it all in a day's trip, and come back to the lake house to relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at the lake. The water was delightful. Your kitchen was well furnished and we had all that we needed. Thanks for renting out your house - it was good for us.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this house is like living in the most gorgeous tree house ever. Once on the porch, you never want to leave. The lightening bugs were very entertaining, and we found an endangered passion flower. The passion flower is exquisite, and it was a rare treat to see this growing wild on the path to the lake. My congratulations to Donna Lewis for providing such a natural and beautiful habitat for some of our endangered species. This is the most beautiful place ever. Also, immaculately clean.

A very peaceful cove

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house to share with our family over Labor Day weekend. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, the house was clean and more than accommodating for the 7 of us, 4 adults, 3 minors.

Pros: plenty of room for 6-8 people, located in a peaceful cove which was nice especially on this busy weekend, kayaks available down at the dock which were great for the kiddos, great outdoor space for entertaining on the back deck of the home, allowed additional time on the last day to checkout

Cons: deferred maintenance - the sink didn't drain well which was problematic as we were trying to keep the small kitchen as clean as possible, and it was extremely disappointing to find the lights at the dock didn't work-- my little boy and his cousins love to fish in the evenings and since the GFI was blown, they weren't able to without using their flashlights

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying Janey. We apologize for lights not working. GFI on dock was just replaced in July, investigating why it blew. Sink works fine now.

Excellent trip

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 had a great time at the lake house. The house was very clean and cozy. Loved reading and sitting out on the porch! My boys really enjoyed swimming in the lake, especially jumping off the top dock into the lake! It was hard to leave after the week was over.

Awesome house, awesome views, can't wait to come back!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a nice neighborhood but once you're in the back it's a lakeside paradise. The deck is so comfortable with ceiling fans and nice furniture including a hammock for those lazy afternoons. Our kids had a blast swimming in the cove, kayaking and fishing.

The house is pretty well stocked for general cooking and cleaning. It's very clean and comfortable with a nice TV and plenty of games to play.

We rented a boat for one day and had a great time tubing and swimming in other parts of the lake. Everyone in the area is friendly and helpful.

Donna is very responsive with any questions about the house.

Overall, we can wait to come back and enjoy this house again! You won't be disappointed if you stay here!!!
