Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath, two porches, every room with a view of Lake Summit

Newly renovated by professional designer, no expense spared to make this house comfortable for a large group. The two upstairs bedrooms both have King sized beds and en-suite bathrooms with Italian tile showers. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed and hand made Italian tile shower. The basement bedroom is set up as a bunk room with two twin sized bunks, two trundle beds, and a cast iron tub with shower. Each room has direct tv and dvd. The kitchen has Bosch appliances and a Sharp microwave drawer. The laundry room has full sized washing machine with dryer and slate tile. The half bath has a copper sink and Rocky Mountain Hardware faucet. All doors are solid hickory with nice hardware. You will love the 'cowboy cauldron' fire pit on the boulder patio that overlooks the lake. We provide a boat for your use (a Boston Whaler that is suitable for skiing or fishing) but bring your own skies. You will enjoy watching the horses graze at your feet (the Greystone pastures are adjacent to the house) and the sun rise and sun set views.

About Jim Miller

We are the owners of Camp Greystone, a girls summer camp that has been owned by our family since 1920. We live across the 'Apple Hill Valley' from this house and purchased it when the previous owner passed away. The extensive renovations were done with an eye to making this as perfect a lake cabin as we could imagine. We love it and think you will too.

Jim Miller purchased this house in 2013

Why Jim Miller chose Smoky Mountains

This home is perfectly situated to enjoy the scenic mountains of Western North Carolina. The lake is wonderful, the views are breath taking, and the neighbors delightful. We love it here.

What makes this house unique

Perched on the side of Apple Hill, you quite literally feel like you are in the trees by the lake. The Nanawall window opens fully to make the living room and screed porch quite literally one room. The quality of the renovation unfolds with each examination: the 10 inch oak plank flooring, the 'nickle gap' paneling, and on, and on.

We have signed a contract to build an amazing new two story boat house (to be completed March 2015). This boat house will feature a kitchen, bathroom, sundeck (with second story jumping platform), swimdeck, sand beach, and all the water toys you will ever need (two paddle boards, two kayaks, a canoe, and a pontoon boat!).

Pristine, beautiful, and comfortable lake Summit home

  • 5 of 5

This home was clean, comfortable, and beautiful. We came with my 2 year old daughter, 83 year old father and sisters. Everyone enjoyed the home, view, and boathouse. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well equipped, and porch/fire pit lovely. Jim was responsive and helpful. One of the best rental homes I have ever stayed in.

Wonderful time for 3 Generations

  • 5 of 5

My parents got to spend a lot of time with their 3 grandkids, playing board games, swimming, boating, hiking and of course eating lots of my mom's cooking, made easy by a wonderfully functioning kitchen! Just 2 hours away from my parents in Charlotte, we all had a nice enough time to fly in from LA, Chicago and D.C. in hopes of making this an annual family event.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! This was not only a gorgeous property but it was the perfect spot to relax and spend time with my little family after getting my daughter from camp.. The house, boathouse, and boat are very well maintained and spotless! (We are all neat freaks in my family so this is important to us) On top of this, being on the Camp Greystone property made it that much more special. We have already booked for next summer and can not wait to get back!

Family & Friends weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Despite not having wonderful weather, we fully enjoyed our long weekend here. Beautiful house and bedrooms, well stocked, clean, and the kids loved the bunk room downstairs. Enjoyed firepit, screened in porch and boating. Highly recommend.
