About the Property
Three bedroom, two bath cottage, on clean, crystal clear Lake James
Lake James is a 7000 acre, pristine mountain lake, located in western North Carolina. Adjacent to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Linville Gorge, the lake offers sparkling clear water, boating, waterskiing, tubing, sailing, diving, camping, and fishing for largemouth, smallmouth, walleye, crappie, catfish, white bass and bream. A water quality study by the TVA showed the lake water to be the cleanest and purest of any lake they have ever tested. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in the Eastern US, and served as the location for the movies 'Last of the Mohicans' and 'Hunt for Red October.'
•A 1960s cottage, updated and refurbished, roughly 1200 square feet. Beach-like décor with comfortable furniture. Cable TV, DVD player, wireless internet.

About the owner: A family that loves the water!
Why the Owner Chose Nebo, NC, USA:
Making family memories is what we love most about Lake James. But, people come here for lots of different reasons--serenity, beauty, nature, friendly people, low crime, clean air and water, low cost of living......
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our lake is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in the entire U.S. People from all over the country have chosen to vacation and retire here. In addition to its beauty and cleanliness, the lake is not very crowded and boat traffic is significantly lighter than on many large reservoirs--making it safer to be on the water, and quieter and more pleasant when on shore.
