About Lucia Case

Originally from Tennessee and New York, we love art, architecture and the outdoors. We have traveled to many countries but Lake Santeetlah is one of the most beautiful places we know. We love to share our favorite spot with family, friends and people who appreciate beauty and nature.

In 2015 we decided it was time to rebuild our deck, create new porches, and renovate the interior. We have updated bathrooms and appliances and have added a bedroom on the main floor. What you get will be essentially an new lake house.

Lucia Case purchased this house in 2005

Why Lucia Case chose Lake Santeetlah

I have been coming to Western NC all my life and grew up with a lake house on Lake Ocoee, TN. When we discovered Lake Santeetlah, boated and skiied in the deep coves, hiked in the protected forests and paddled nearby rivers, we knew this was a place to come back to over and over. When we saw the million dollar views from this house and saw how well built, private and comfortable it is, we were sold! At 2000 ft elevation, pristine Lake Santeetlah is 2,800 acres and an only 20% of its 80 miles of shoreline can ever be developed. The lake levels are stable and the lake only drops 10 feet, even in the winter.

What makes this house unique

We own over 200 ft of shoreline on the main body of the lake and have have a great waterfront for swimming, fishing, and boating. The house is great for all ages, and the bedrooms are spread out for privacy. Includes two living rooms for entertaining , TV on both levels, well-equipped kitchen, separate dining room for 12, outdoor cooking and dining, wood burning fireplace, fire pit, lots of decks and porches. Safe and scenic places to walk or jog. Canoe and kayaks are toys we like to share.

i wish there were more stars to give

  • 5 of 5

it's perfect. the home is spectacular. aesthetically, there's a treasure to be found whenever your eyes are open. i loved some paintings so much i asked the owner (she is amazing!) who the artist was... i wanted the one of the foal......it turned out they were done by her daughter while in high school. it's a home that's clearly loved and tended to. and the lake.. the water is pristine. the night we arrived the moon was full... it lit up the water...just magical. and the view across the lake- from any of the decks, the dock, the rooms- is pure nature. can't wait to go back..

Gorgeous house on a gorgeous lake!

The home was spacious, well equipped and perfect for our needs. Being able to keep my boat right on the dock was great! We would definitely return!

This vacation location is a 10 out of 10 in all respects!

  • 5 of 5

This house is exquisite and the lake serene and beautiful. We had 9 people staying at the house for the week and had plenty of room for all. The house was well-decorated, spacious, and well-equipped for our stay. My husband and I particularly enjoyed sitting on the covered porch in the morning during sunrise, while sipping our coffee. We spent endless hours boating on the lake, water skiing and just exploring the various coves and fingers of Lake Santeetlah. The owner of the house was very responsive to our requests for information. We hope to stay here next year and recommend this house for a lake vacation without equivocation.

Amazing Vacation! Thank you for sharing your home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time, family reunion with 8 people including two teenage kids. The location, nature views and the house itself cannot be any better! Super pretty, very comfortable, easy parking, easy access to the pier, beautiful fire pit place with lake view... Pictures do not do the justice, in person everything looks and feels amazing! We've done lots of fun activities such as zip-lining, horseback riding, boating and tubing (registration in advance recommended). Sitting by the fire and watching the stars and The Milky Way was something special that you don't see in a big city. We were very happy to find this place. Thank you, Lucia for all your help and suggestions :) ~Miami Family
