Holiday getaway

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I took a short vacation to recharge our batteries, and this darling house did the trick. We kayaked during the day along with other delightful vacationers, and went into Cashiers for wonderful shopping. We ate all meals here as we didn't want to miss any of the wonderful relaxed environment. We will be back!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is described as a getaway and it was true. We had a girl's weekend and we all traveled from various places in SC & GA. We wanted a place we could unwind but also get out and enjoy the shops. We had 2 avid hikers with us who insisted we hike in Panthertown and that was a highlight of our trip. We loved having the kayaks and went out a couple of times a day on the boats. The kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals. We did have pizza at Slabtown and it was delicious. The walk down to the lake is windy as described and we got our workout going up and down the stairs. We are getting our dates together to return next spring. The cabin books up early for the summer months.

Beautiful setting in convenient location!!

  • 5 of 5

We left 100+ temps to enjoy the 70-80's of Sapphire. The house had everything we needed with plenty of room for the five of us. We Mae a few day trips to nearby waterfalls etc but also enjoyed the dock and boats provided. When I returned home I realized I had left some things and the owner boxed them right up and mailed them to me I was very appreciative!!! We will definitely go back

Lake was the best part

  • 5 of 5

We love to fish and appreciate a quiet lake without motorized boats so we loved this cabin.

We spent our days on our boat we brought with us. They have 3 kayaks and a fishing boat available but we have one with a trolling motor. The kids loved the boats provided.

Great pizza and live music at Micas just down the street.The Ingles grocery store is also close and has a Starbucks inside.

We went to the Village Green in Cashiers for a festival and music.

Pick up your picnic supplies at Cashiers Market across from Buck's Coffee Shop.

Great time for everyone!

Great Stay at Mountain Lake House

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay at this peaceful, relaxing mountain lake house. The setting was scenic, the lake peaceful, and the house had everything we needed -- just as described. We took a local hike at Gorges State Park (several beautiful waterfalls) and ventured to Oskar Blues Brewery in Brevard. My wife went to Highlands for a massage, while I fished on the lake. This was a perfect chance for us to get away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life. We will definitely be back.

Let me first state that we enjoyed our stay at the Lakehouse. There are few things that renters should know. There is no central air conditioning in the house and only two of the three bedrooms have a window unit. I don't know if this is expressed in the description (I may have missed it). The upside to this is there are plenty of fans in the house to keep the air circulating. The steps to the lake are steep much steeper than I imagined. I state this because if there is a person in your party that has trouble walking (or breathing), they will not be able to get back to the house from the lake.

Our eldest son (19) truly enjoyed the screened-in balcony off the bedroom where he stayed. The bunk beds are a nice idea, but the mattresses were awful. The mattresses were extremely hard. Our daughter after a couple of days chose to sleep in our bedroom on the floor.

The kitchen was stocked. You can make it for a week with the supplies available, but we also didn't cook. I brought meals from home and reheated/baked the dishes.

The home seems to be going through updating. There was stuff all around and maybe some of the furniture will be changed out. The hammock was wonderful and so was the lake. We enjoyed kayaking on the lake and of course, swimming.

Have a great time at the Lakehouse!!
