This beautiful custom home is the perfect retreat for your special gathering with your family and friends. Our spacious luxury home has over 6,500 square feet and every amenity to ensure an awesome and memorable experience for everyone in your group...whether that is quiet time relaxing and enjoying gorgeous views over beautiful Lake James, action packed days enjoying the lake, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing, exploring natural ‘adventure islands’ (undeveloped islands), fishing, tubing, water skiing, and boating; or off the lake, hiking trails and mountains, spelunking caverns, or mountain biking; then perhaps joining up again in the evening for s’mores around the fire pit, friendly challenges in the game room, a favorite movie in the home theater, or cozy gatherings around the stone fireplaces.

The home is built with natural materials throughout; gorgeous hickory floors, extensive stone and custom iron work, exposed beams, wood paneled vaulted ceilings, and 10' 4' ceilings on main level. The house uniquely combines luxury amenities with natural materials and rustic accents to enhance your mountain experience right on the lake!

The wonderful large gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home with granite, top end appliances (Wolfe and SubZero), a massive central island with prep sink, breakfast nook with long table, and counter bar with comfy barstools. The dining room has a fabulous 72' round table with bench seats and lazy susan - perfect for great conversation with a large group! Each of the two inviting living room areas has cozy quality seating, a stone gas fireplace, and a wall of full height glass doors for views and access outdoors. A huge game room includes pool table with ping pong top, foosball, 82" TV with PS3 and Wii video game systems with games including Rock Band, game table, and electric piano.

The family game closet is full of games for all tastes and is complete with jigsaw puzzles. The home theater features stadium seating, a new 4K 84” TV, DVD library and Netflix. The kitchenette/wet bar on the lower level is perfect for refreshments and snacks. If you are looking for a nice quiet place you can head off to the sun-room boasting the best views in the house with awesome chaise lounge, or a cozy seat in the loft or study area, or a quiet spot in a hammock or chair on the deck or patio. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spots!

Electronics include stereo with Ipod and Pandora hookup. Stereo speakers throughout the house, custom controlled within each room. WiFi, satellite TVs, Blue-Ray players, and on-demand Netflix.

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, with double tankless water heater so you never run out of hot water.

The outdoor area includes a large open deck with stunning views and large gas grill. The lower deck has flagstone floors with large deep seating patio set. It's an easy walk from the house to the double slip dock with party deck and diving board (depth of 30 ft at dock!). You are welcome to use our 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, and canoe. You can bring your own boat or PWC to keep at the dock, or you can rent our 24' pontoon boat. Gathering around a fire in the fire pit or feeding fish at the dock will create fond memories for everyone.

Everything You'd Want in a Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

4 married couples who've been best friends since elementary school shared this lake retreat for 5 days! Can't say enough good! Each bedroom suite was very excellent. We found the master suite to be "masterful"! The guys enjoyed pool, the porches, theater and fire pit all day. The girls found numerous places to lounge, sit, enjoy the fall beauty and talk. The large dinning table right by the kitchen was probably the most used! Kitchen is easy to cook with 8 people! We will be back and haven't considered exploring for another place. Why mess with something when it has everything you wanted! By the way we never left the compound!

Great house for all weather conditions

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with so many fun things to do. We had some rainy weather and the theater and game rooms gave us plenty of activities. We also went on several hikes in the area. The lake and boat was also a treat for the warmer sunny days. You won't be disappointed. The house is lovely and well furnished with decks off 2 levels. A wonderful retreat for a family vacation.

Relaxing Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have come to this property and we can not give it enough stars! The view, the lake, the house and it's features are all top notch and truly make for a great vacation. Whether you have a couple or two or a whole group, this house is so comfortable and luxurious. We have travels to all of the hiking spots and even hit a few of the great breweries in this area. Located perfect to get to so much activity and placed so peaceful when you want the most privacy. LOVE THIS PLACE!

Fabulous house on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous house with everything and more than anyone could want. The waterfront is wonderful looking although we didn't get to enjoy it because the weather did not permit. We were evacuees from Hurricane Irma. It is pretty remote so one needs to bring all the food, drinks, etc.. Would love to return with our family and enjoy all the amenities!

The property and house was a piece of heaven on earth! We unfortunately had to shorten our stay by 2 days due to hurricane Irma. We would absolutely want to come back there!

Terrific home for couples' reunion!

  • 5 of 5

This home on beautiful Lake James met all our needs! We were a group of 5 couples in our 60's-70's, meeting up from across the US for a reunion, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Plenty of space, well-equipped kitchen, private baths, etc. We were there in late July/early August & weather was perfect. Much to our pleasant surprise, not a mosquito in sight! The lake was refreshing, clear & clean, and SUPs & kayaks enjoyed. We rented the pontoon boat and used it at least once a day....totally made the reunion trip even better! We only ventured out one time for a day trip;fun, but not necessary as the house & lake are so inviting. We utilized the deck & grill each night for fun group dinners. We all agreed that this would make a great family/friend retreat in winter as well as summer. Hoping to return sometime soon with kids & grandkids. An added bonus was how responsive the owners were as well as house manager. They answered all our questions and gave great info/suggestions. Thanks, Valerie and Andrea!!!!
