Overview

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 Lake 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.

Lovely property- secluded but still close to Cashiers. Master bathroom and bedroom was beautiful and the whole home was very comfortable. We will definitely book this home again.

Great for Large Families!

We had a wonderful gathering for my mother's 80th birthday celebration. The house is very comfortable with great spaces both inside and out. Sunset is something special from that deck.

Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Both my husband and I have had a very busy year so far and relaxing at home doesn't work since our offices are located there. This is our second visit to Heaven's Gate and we found it even more enchanting during the summer. Our weather was perfect the house has everything you could ever want and the surroundings are so beautiful. We will definitely be going back again. Thanks to the Millers for this wonderful retreat!

Heaven's Gate

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect venue for our family reunion and 80th birthday party. Definitely a five star lodging. The kitchen was very well equipped. We spent a lot of time cooking and eating, playing games, and landscape painting. The scenery was fantastic. We rented a pontoon boat and swam in the lake. The water was clear and temperate. Saw a dear and a bear from the porch. We painted scenery on the porches, Can't wait to rebook for next year.

Owner's Response: It makes me happy you were painters! That scenery is hard to beat. I am a photographer and that view never gets old. I look forward to having you again!

Fabulous Mountain Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Family Vacation at Heaven's Gate. The house was very accommodating. Plenty to do as the house is well equipped for children. For the older ones there is pool and shuffleboard the younger ones played the ring game and box gam a. The home is beautifully situated on a mountain overlooking Lake Glenville. There was plenty of space for lawn games and at night we enjoyed beautiful bonfires eating s'mores. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and tubed. There is also a sandy beach and playgrounds for the younger children. On Friday night we went to the Town Center on the green and listened to local musicians entertain. What a fun time had by all. Hope to visit again soon.
