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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is easily the most well provisioned property I've stayed at using the VRBO platform. The home is gorgeous, the views are spectacular and the general setting is unbeatable. We would definitely come back.

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

What a memorable vacation! Not only did we have the perfect home to host our family, we had the solar eclipse to view from the deck, dock, and boat! The views are stunning. The owners were so accommodating and helpful....we had a perfect week with the weather, the home, and the views (did I mention the views?). Simply first class. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited during August 2017. The house met all of our needs and more. The view was breathtaking. We loved taking advantage of the numerous sitting areas outside and hanging out on the dock.

We are already deciding on a date next year!

Summertime bliss

  • 5 of 5

Hard to top a beautiful lake, swimming, kayaking, incredible views and a gorgeous home. We were 6 adults and we found the outdoor deck and dining exactly what we wanted. This house has one of the best spots on the lake. It was also well provisioned in every respect!

Absolutely Stunning Home on Lake Santeetlah

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home on Lake Santeetlah. The combination of location, space, amenities, and layout simply can't be beat. Our group of 12 (6 couples) was very comfortable, we never needed more space, there was plenty of seating inside and out for meals and lounging, copious amounts of dishware and silverware, and this house has great parking (which isn't always possible with Lake Santeetlah houses due to the terrain). Do note that if you have 12 people/6 couples, there are 5 bedrooms, so there will be some shared space (we knew this going in and we were okay with it).

We enjoyed all aspects of this house, especially the large dock and the stunning views towards the south side of Lake Santeetlah. This house would be great for anyone wanting pure lake time or a combo of exploring the area and relaxing on the lake.

One of the best parts is that the owner is VERY responsive. She proactively provided all necessary info well in advance, communication was clear, concise, and friendly, and the couple items that we needed to contact her about were responded to within an hour or so at most.

We look forward to staying in this house again in the future!

Lovely, private lake home with all the extras

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 10 (ages 10 - 75) enjoyed every moment of our vacation in this beautiful, perfectly stocked lake home. The setting on Lake Santeetlah is premier, and quite private, with multiple indoor and outdoor areas for gathering or retreating. The views from the upper, covered deck are spectacular, and our children loved the fire pit (complete with marshmallow roasting tools!) The kitchen is a treat for any cook -- so nicely stocked with equipment and supplies (and a generous "replace it if you use it up" honor code.) This home is beautiful top-to-bottom, and the owner is gracious and kind. (She went out of her way to help us arrange for fun and even purchased some special supplies for the children in our party!) We especially enjoyed having the use of the owner's kayaks and canoe. Lake Santeetlah is a treasure in and of itself, and this home is a true gem. We look forward to returning as soon as possible!
