About the property

4 bedrooms, 5000 sq ft. log home, sleeps 12-14, beds for 12-14

This incredible vacation log home has expansive decks overlooking beautiful Lake Glenville and is surrounded by 16 ranges of mountains. Take in the beautiful sunsets over the lake as you dine on one of the covered decks. If privacy is what you desire, Heaven's Gate is situated on 8 acres for the kids to run and play. The kids (and adults too) will love the game room which has a pool table, shuffleboard table, and dartboard as well as a flat screen tv.

The expansive living room is right out of a magazine with soaring ceilings and beautiful stone fireplace. Sit by the fire in the morning and sip your coffee or sit on the deck and watch the deer and wild turkey.

Walk to your own private dock which awaits you on Lake Glenville, pontoon boat rental is also within walking distance.

This fabulous log home is perfect for a romantic getaway for two or a family reunion. Its peacefulness, thus the name Heaven's Gate, also lends itself well for a church retreat.

Every bedroom has a beautiful view of the lake and its own bathroom. The master suite with jacuzzi tub, has its own deck with a swing for two. Bring your sweater, it is cool even in the summer at nearly 4000 ft. elevation. The AVERAGE low temperature in July is 59 degrees. It is not uncommon to light a fire in the morning just to take the chill off.

The two bedrooms upstairs each have a queen and single bed. The master suite downstairs has a king bed. The finished basement has the game room, a king bed and the bunk room has two sets of bunk beds.

Just a short drive to Cashiers, Highlands, Cherokee and Franklin, this area of Western North Carolina offers activities for all ages from golfing to whitewater rafting.

About Susan Miller

I am a native Floridian who has spent every summer of my life in Glenville, NC. I have spent countless hours on the Lake Glenville learning to ski. We were accepted as one of the locals when we were there. We love our home dearly and want to share it with those who would love it and take care of it too.

Susan Miller purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Susan Miller chose Glenville

This is a beautifully decorated upscale home with tons of amenities. Kids and adults alike will love the game room and the adults will love to sit on the deck overlooking the lake watching the sunset. It's our little peace of heaven on earth

What makes this lodge unique

This log home is unique in that it offers both the wide range vistas of the lake and mountain views, as well as having its own private dock. You are situated on eight acres for complete peace and privacy.

Best View in the Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house with some friends for a wedding we were attending. There were supposed to be 3 couples when we booked it and for one reason or another, it got down to 3 people. I had the entire basement area to myself and it was the size of a large one bedroom apartment with it's own walkout and beautiful views (which you can not escape no matter where you are in the house). Just the basement/game room part of the house would sleep a couple and four kids. There is a king bed in the main area and a room off to the side with 2 bunk beds. One and a half baths down there. The main floor living area has breath taking views. The master is on this floor with a full bath. The deck is where we spent a lot of time (again, the view). There is so much room in this house, you could get lost or go off by yourself, voluntarily or by mistake lol. There is one more floor upstairs that I only looked at, but it has two large bedrooms, full bath and a loft area.

Susan, the owner, was very responsive and great to work with. The house has all kitchen gadgets and necessities you could possibly want, along with all linens and towels.

I came back to Florida and looked at my calendar trying to figure out a time to go back. It is definitely a home away from home. Whoever has this booked for the holidays is going to have a wonderful time!

This was our fourth property to rent at Thanksgiving and by far the best. Plenty of room inside and out. Especially enjoyed being outside on the spacious grounds. Already making plans to rent again in 2019.

Gorgeous Home and View!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house. It sits high in the mountains overlooking a lake valley with 180' views that spans the mountain range. Absolutely gorgeous. It is a rustic log cabin that slept two families easily. It is comfortably furnished and well stocked with all of the usually necessities. There is a nice fire pit with the same view outside. We saw several deer and critters and birds in the area. It is very private and secluded. The location is just a few minutes from Cashiers. The nearest Walmart is a good 35 minutes away in Sylva which can be a long trek if you really need something, but there are a couple of nice grocery stores in Cashiers. Not shown in the photos is the great amount of taxidermy in the home. A most welcome surprise to our families. Mountain lions , Wolves, and Bears! Oh My! It was a great base to explore the entire mountain range from Cashiers to Highlands down to Franklin. Would highly recommend! Thank You for sharing your beautiful home with us! We'd love to return the next time we are in the area.

We had an extremely wet weekend, but the house was spacious enough for us to spread out and still enjoy the relaxing weekend.

Fantastic Log Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect setting and home for a large group with spectacular views of the lake and mountains. The large grass area in front of the house is great for playing yard games and the firepit was used each night. Having firewood was a big plus too. It was easy to check-in and instructions were simple. We rented it for the wedding party which couldn't have been more perfect; pool and shuffleboard in the basement with lots of parking spaces for multiple cars. We highly recommend it! Laurie
