Beautiful, well maintained home on private lot.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed this unique home, the pictures do not do it justice! Well equipped kitchen and seating for our group. Private dock, canoes, kayaks a great bonus. Only negative is the driveway was a bit rough to get up and down, gravel needed to be resurfaced, many ruts to maneuver due to the rain fall. Otherwise a superb accommodation!

Owner's Response: Hi Debbie, Bliss is a very special place and is very loved by the owners. Most of the paintings in the home were done by the owners father, he was very talented! The driveway will be getting re-scraped in the off season. All of the rains this summer has kept it hard for us to do work on it. We do hope that you come back to visit us in the future! Happy Fall Tracy McGlohon and Sue Gage

Beautiful Get Away

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the property. Nice and relaxing. The only reason it doesn't get five stars is because you have to wash your own towels and take off the garbage and pay a $175 cleaning fee. Other than that, we had a great time.

Owner's Response: HI Carmen, Thanks for letting us know how much you enjoyed your visit to Bliss on the Lake. This home on scenic Bald Mountain Lake is a nice and relaxing retreat and we hope you also enjoyed the complementary late check out offered in advance of your departure date. I would like to respond to the issues you raised in your review. There has been an increase in bear siting's and activity. These bears are seeking food from garbage containers and often strewn the remaining trash on the property and roads. In order for guests not to encounter one of these wild animals, or to have to personally clean up these messes, and to keep our properties debris free, we do require renters to take all garbage to the designated trash receptacles' less than a mile away. We have asked our renters to start a load of towels and to strip bedding and put in laundry area, however, starting in 2018, a separate linen service will be in place. Finally, the cleaning fee of $175.00 for a home the size of Bliss on the Lake, which can hold up to 10 people, is within the average for lake home cleaning services in this area.

Perfectly blissful

  • 5 of 5

Bliss by the Lake was just perfect for a long weekend gathering of our group of 5 long-time girlfriends. The house was comfortable in every way, from the seating area around the indoor fireplace, to the open-plan kitchen with large dining table, to the game table just the right size for working jigsaw puzzles, to the screened porch, to the well-placed bedrooms. The sounds of rushing water could easily be heard from the screened porch, adding to the tranquility of the setting. LOVED the fire pit, the view of the lake, the dock and the canoes. A lovely 3.5 mile hiking trail was just down the street. Grocery shopping was easy at the well-stocked Ingles in Lake Lure (where you can also buy firewood) - about an 18 minute drive from the house. We did not take advantage of the massages offered by the resort, but would have if we'd been there a day longer. All in all, a terrific place to relax with old friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Desiree - it's having families like yours and your friends that make Bliss on the Lake the home folks want to return to year after year. This home does accommodate families with young children comfortably and being right on Bald Mountain lake is ideal for family fun. Thanks for taking the time to write this review and please come back again.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just spent a week at Bliss by the Lake. My husband and me, my sister and her 16 year old daughter, my 86 year old mother, my sons 14 and 12, and a 13 year old friend. It was wonderful! We went on the lake every day. The kids enjoyed the canoes and kayak. My sister had a hip replacement three weeks ago, so Doc Holiday was perfect for her to be able to enjoy the lake with us. We played badminton, cards, watched movies, hiked, played in the pool, putt putt, canoed, kayaked, floated, swam, fished, and read. The house was great. Plenty of room, clean, beautiful, comfortable beds. I highly recommend the house and location. We can't wait to go back.
