_____________________________________________________________________________

You and your extended family will enjoy the beauty of the surrounding mountains and lakefront living in this newly constructed timber frame home with guesthouse.

Lake Adger consists of several small private communities fitting carefully into the natural landscape on 3200 acres surrounding the 438-acre Lake Adger with its 14.5 miles of natural shoreline.

We are located on the north side of Lake Adger on a lakefront lot with almost 300 feet of shoreline. A large dock with a kayak and utility box (storage for life jackets, water toys and accessories) provides ample room to set up chairs and enjoy the serenity of the lake. Lake Adger, a deep water lake, has restricted access, such that jet skis and waterskiing are not allowed. Boats are restricted to 80 horsepower for pontoon boats and 60 horsepower on other boats. Other than that, enjoy the lake by canoeing, kayaking, swimming and fishing.

Our timber frame home was completed in August 2013. Since then, we have been working on making our home, “Rilwoods,” something that our entire extended family can enjoy together, but we also want to share it with our friends. Our focus has been to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We have furnished it with eclectic furnishings, yet ensured that you have top of the line appliances, comfy beds, all the amenities of home, and items to entertain you. Our emphasis has been on bringing the indoors out and the outdoors in, thus the two levels of expansive decking, windows galore, covered eating area, gas grill and space to spread out! And that doesn’t even cover the spectacular views of the lake from virtually every room! We want to make Rilwoods your home away from home.

A large entrance hall opens into the main living area of our home. Gaze upwards to the vaulted ceiling in the expansive and well equipped kitchen and dining area that makes meal time easy to prepare and clean up. The main hall opens up into the family room with a stone fireplace and loft. Enjoy some quiet time in the loft (fold-out couch with a new mattress!) reading a book or playing games. Toys, puzzles and books for the younger kids are upstairs. The family room has a 60 inch surround sound HiDef TV with DIRECTV access and sliding doors lead right outside to the second level deck. Covered eating porch and gas grill are located just outside the dining room. On the main level, you will find the master suite with queen bed, cathedral ceiling, sliding doors to the upper level deck, spacious shower and bathroom and large closet. And just off the front entrance of the house to the left is a powder room and large utility room with washer and dryer.

The lower level has another full family sitting area and two bedrooms and bath. The “Blue Bedroom” with a queen bed, has French doors onto the lower level deck, walk-in closet and sliding door into the lower level bathroom. The back bedroom/office has a bunk bed and office equipment. Inflatable beds are also available as needed.

The guesthouse has a master bedroom, a bunk area with double/single bunk beds and a kitchenette and sitting area that includes a futon couch that opens to a double-size bed.

There is ample parking for at least five vehicles, easy unloading of suitcases and such upon arrival and a walkway to access the dock and lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Janet and Nick grew up vacationing at family lake houses. When they took up with each other in the mid-70s, the enjoyment of time on the lake was one of many things they had in common. Not surprising then that they have always wanted to find a way to continue this tradition for their family and friends. With this in mind they purchased property here on Lake Adger and had this house and guest house constructed.

Why the Owner Chose Mill Spring, NC, USA:
Large house and guest house provide plenty of room for an extended family while this pristine lake in the Blue Ridge Mountains is exceptionally quiet with fewer houses and limits on boat traffic. Location is excellent, approximately 35 miles from Asheville, NC and Spartanburg, SC and 90 minutes from Charlotte.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the beauty of the surrounding mountains AND lakefront living in this timber frame home and guest house with spectacular views of the lake from virtually every room. Lake Adger consists of several small private communities fitting carefully into the natural landscape on 3200 acres surrounding the 438-acre Lake Adger with its 14.5 miles of natural shoreline.
