Bliss By teh Lake - on Bald Mountain - The property was clean and better than we expected.
The layout of the property was great for our family. Everyone enjoyed the canoes, kayak, and amenities. The only complaint we had was the rock driveway. We had two front wheel drive cars and had to back out of the driveway in order to get out. If you tried to drive out forward the tires would just spin about half way up due to the steep grade. I would suggest paving the upper two thirds of the driveway.
Beautiful Get Away
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.
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.
Great Mountian Getaway
The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was more than happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Our group was very comfortable in this nicely furnished,clean home. Very pretty deck and yard leading to private dock. We enjoyed the canoes and Kayaks
Beautiful, well maintained home on private lot.
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!
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!

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.
Hi Jennifer-thank you for your review of Bliss on the Lake. We appreciate hearing from our guests how this wonderful lake house is perfect for small group gatherings or reunions such as yours. We hope you will consider Buffalo Junction Properties again when planning your next getaway get together.
We loved it!!!
Wonderful, spacious cabin. Our kids loved that it was a circle. Great little stream going into the lake was perfect for our kids.
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.
