About Reservations

We love traveling the world, eating wonderful ethnic food, experiencing nature, and visiting historical places.

Reservations purchased this house in 2008

Why Reservations chose Brevard

We grew up in Brevard so we know about the natural beauty of the area. We inherited this lakehouse from one of our parents who in 2008 built this special lake retreat house, called Belonging Place, so that she and groups she cared about could renew themselves in the beautiful, quiet mountains and the mesmerizing lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ripples of tiny waves, a dance of wind and water, sunlight and shadows. A weekend for family get together in this mountain lake retreat. We now belong here too. With love and light

Relaxing stay over spring break

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this home for a few nights over my son’s spring break week. The home was lovely with everything that you need already thought of and provided. There was plenty of room for our families both inside as well as out. The boys loved having their own space downstairs and we all enjoyed our time on the lake in the canoe, kayaks, and paddle board. We went on a waterfall hike about 15-20 minutes away and also enjoyed the town of Brevard nearby. Would highly recommend!

Perfect for our intentions to gather as a family

A relaxing, very comfortable, and beautiful place to gather with family over the holidays. We felt deeply at ease in this home and blessed with a well stocked kitchen for delicious meals and comfortable spaces for eating and games. Thank you for perfectly thought out hospitality.

Absolutely the best outfitted rental property in which we have ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

Belonging Place is an incredibly nice property. We had a delightful visit with our family over the Thanksgiving Holiday! First of all the setting is very beautiful with sweeping views of Eagle Lake and the mountains beyond. And the house is an impeccable property with many extra features such as 2 washers/2 dryers, 2 dishwashers, ping pong table, and numerous water toys including paddle boats, canoe, etc. We have rented numerous homes and condos over the years in various locations, but this home is better outfitted with every possible convenience than any property we have rented before. The owners have thoughtfully labeled the numerous light switches and drawers for ease of access to everything you need. The interior is a contemporary masterpiece taking full advantage of the view and setting. We highly recommend Belonging Place, and we plan to come back again!

Great weekend at a very special place

  • 5 of 5

I'm a repeat guest at the Belonging Place and it never disappoints. The quiet lake front setting was a perfect place to host some of our family members from out of state. We enjoyed perfect fall weather and everyone had a relaxing time. Thanks Greg and Susanne for your hospitality!

Wonderful and Peaceful Home

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our family loved this home. Not only was there a lot to do on the lake and surrounding area, this home says come and relax. It is warm and welcoming with all the plushness of a resort. Our family was there for a family reunion so there was plenty of room to spread out and visit. At night, we sat on the porch with a fire going in the fireplace. This house will be our go to from now when visiting the Brevard area.

Beautiful, well appointed, they had thought of everything.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Plenty room for the 9 of us. View of the lake is fabulous. Close to waterfalls for hiking. Everything was impectible with the exception of the kitchen sink. I am sure the owners know about the stains. It really should replaced, since it detracts from the otherwise wonderful ambiance of the cabin.
