About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14) secluded location on the lake

SUMMER COVE RENTS FROM A FRIDAY TO FRIDAY DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS OF 6/16/2017 - 8/17/2017

The essence of these ancient mountains is palpable in the majestic views and forests around this magical place. You rightly sense something quite special is awaiting you while meandering on the lane far into the surrounding sparsely developed 60-acre forest tract, filled with large rhododendron and mountain laurel. The spirit and past presence of the Cherokee is felt here and evidenced by the countless arrowheads that have been found on the property. Peace, calm and well being envelop you upon arrival and will keep you spellbound until you leave.
Nestled among the oak and pine on the shore of Lake Glenville is one of the lake’s most magnificent properties. Lake Glenville at 3500 ft., fed by 4 waterfalls with 26 miles of shoreline, is the highest man made lake east of the Mississippi: widely known for its exquisite beauty, purity and temperate summer climate. Designed 5 years ago by the famed William T. Baker, this house seems both lodge and gracious home. The soaring 23-foot great room with its massive beamed ceiling, large stone fireplace and immense windows boasts an unbelievable view a mile down the lake, evoking a sense of grandeur well beyond the ordinary.

Life here is at its best however when you are outside. But there are too many choices! Relax on the large covered porch with your feet up . Or perhaps unwind in the evening with a glass of your favorite libation; sitting with friends and family on the expansive, westward facing deck at mid tree level, looking out at the lake, mountains, sunset and countless stars. Gentle cool breezes wafting through the trees and the sounds of the crickets have caressed many into a relaxed trance. Wind your way down to the stone amphitheater with its large fire-pit near the shore for storytelling and s’mores. Early risers can start the day by sitting with a cup of coffee on the 16’x20’ dock (stretching 50ft out into the lake), shrouded in the occasional summer morning fog, listening to the sounds of the ducks, geese and jumping fish. If you feel like being active, you can swim, float off the end of the deep-water dock, kayak or rent a boat from the marina a mile away.

This 5400 sq. ft., 5-bedroom/5 ½ bath home on three levels is very ample for 12+ to comfortably stay here. The exterior use of natural materials, especially the poplar bark siding and extensive stonework, allows this house to almost disappear into its beautiful wooded setting. Liberal interior use of hickory paneling, pine floors, beautiful stone fireplaces and laurel railing, as well as selected rustic and antique furnishings lend to the phrase “rustic elegance” that aptly describes this home.

A spacious chef’s kitchen with counter seating, fully stocked with virtually every amenity and appliance, awaits you and will surely be a gathering point for lively conversation and gourmet cooking. The table in the beautiful dining room easily seats 8 and can accommodate up to 10 people (additional seating nearby). Should you decide to eat al fresco, the ample dining area on the covered porch provides a wonderful ambiance. The master suite features its own private deck with incredible vistas, satellite TV and a large walk-in closet. The master bath boasts double vanities made with antique Canadian pine countertops and a large shower with dual heads. All the bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and magnificent views of the lake; each has its own elegantly appointed bathroom with granite countertops. The two upstairs bedrooms have a bonus window bed perfect for reading (or a nap!) The lower level, a perfect area for the kids to be away from the adults, has two bedrooms one with a bunk bed and two twin beds, the other with a queen bed. The entertainment area downstairs features a ping-pong table, large screen TV with surround sound, satellite TV, DVD with large video library, game table and a wet bar area with a microwave, sink and refrigerator. This level also has a fully stocked laundry room with a large washer and dryer. A smaller deck off the lower level with porch swing below creates more potential private spaces.
Beautiful mountain hikes with breathtaking vistas, waterfalls, shopping, antiquing, golf and dining in nearby Cashiers or Highlands allow one to indulge in other pastimes. Located conveniently on the eastern side of the lake makes getting to most attractions much more convenient. But most will find they just want to sit on the deck and soak in the in breathtaking beauty!

A load of firewood can be provided ($110.00 minimum load, 4' x'4' x 18" L pieces)- should you require more wood, please call the office to arrange a delivery or alternatively firewood can be purchased from Ingles.

No Smoking, No Pets.

Manager info

About: This property has been in Carolyn's family for many years; she has many fond memories of enjoyable times spent at the original house up the hill. Her grandfather bought the surrounding 100+ acres of lakefront property in 1947 as the reservoir was being built (much of the original tract has now been sold but is still sparsely developed.) It's hard to imagine now, but this entire area (pre-lake ) was farmland. A small hamlet was located down the lake from us (now 80 feet under water.) For over a thousand years before that the Cherokee had lived on this land. We have found hundreds of arrowheads on the property over the years (a few are displayed in the foyer.) We hail from Atlanta where Steve is a physician (ophthalmologist) and Carolyn works at Emory University, after a 30 year career at SunTrust Bank. Please let the property manager know if there is anything you need. We would appreciate it if you would sign our guest book in the kitchen and please post a positive review on VRBO! This is a very special, relaxing place; we're sure you will agree. We are pleased to share it with you.
