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 Tuxedo

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!).

Gorgeous lake house on lake summit!

  • 5 of 5

This home has all the extras. Beautifully decorated and so cozy and comfortable. It was extremely clean and the beds are super comfortable. It was very cold during our stay, but the fireplace kept the house so toasty warm. We also built a fire in the outdoor fire pit area. Jim is a very gracious host, and even left snacks and drinks for us on our arrival. This is an amazing place!

This home is even better in person. Fantastic views that you can enjoy from multiple exterior patios, or from anywhere in the beautifully decorated home. More room than needed for our family of 4- we will rent again and have the kids bring friends. Can’t wait to come in summer and use more of the outdoor space, boat house and toys. We did enjoy walking the camp property and visiting the horses. Convenient to restaurants in Saluda and Flat Rock, and not a bad drive to Asheville, where we were sure to head for some shopping and dinner at our fave Curate.

Amazing destination Thanksgiving 2017!

  • 5 of 5

Jim's home exceeded expectations on every level from the professionally interior design, stunning lake and mountain views, boat access fully fueled and ready to explore beautiful Lake Summit, along with the off season access to tour the grounds at Camp Greystone. This is my new favorite part of North Carolina! The home is perfect for a family gathering and the downstairs bunk room is a child's dream. Jim was also generous to provide a stash of snacks, drinks and wine for our stay. We had an unforgettable Thanksgiving and highly reccomend this rental for the perfect mountain/lake getaway where it feels like you're in a secluded area, but short commutes to Asheville, Greenville SC, Chimney Rock and more. Thank You Jim for sharing your home!!

An AMAZING weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Our friends weekend trip was amazing. The home is stunning and very well supplied. Definitely beyond our expectations! Although it is a little outside of Asheville, it is absolutely worth the drive.

We hope to make this an annual trip and will without a doubt stay here again!

Thank you so much Jim for sharing your home!

Truly an upscale, amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous home! It was a chilly weekend and it was wonderful to sit by the fireplace and enjoy a good book while looking out at the view. We loved the hospitality from the owners having snacks and drinks waiting for us. The location was easy to find and was a short drive to many local quaint restaurants. A definite must see!
