About the property

3BR/3 1/2 BA, LR/DR/kitchen,W/D, stone fireplace, 2 outside decks, pking, dock

We are thankful for our 3rd season with VRBO and are thrilled with the response we have received from our visitors to The Perch on Lake Glenville (formerly known as Northlake Lodge)! Our visitors' reviews, loving our porches, prompted the renaming of our place to 'The Perch on Lake Glenville'. 'The Perch' reflects the fact that our lodge is perched on the mountain directly on the lake and has beautiful 'perches' (porches) from which to enjoy the breathtaking views! The name change also emphasizes the whimsical nature of this special setting. Our home is directly on the lakefront of stunning Lake Glenville (the largest lake in the area), in Trillium’s golf, lake, and mountain resort community in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Cashiers. At an elevation of almost 4,000 feet, we are situated on one of the highest--and coolest--spots in the North Carolina Mountains.

The Perch on Lake Glenville is a very peaceful, inviting home-away-from-home, with soaring cathedral ceilings and post and beam construction. On the upper floor is a galley kitchen, a great room with new dining room and gracious living area, a wood-burning stone fireplace and half bath. The master bedroom is also on this level and features a king bed, generous walk in closet, and a large bath with jetted tub and separate shower. A wrap around deck with breathtaking views of Lake Glenville is accessible from the living area and has a new gas grill, table for dining, and plenty of seating.

The lower level of the lodge features an additional master bedroom with a king bed, private full bath and closet. An additional bedroom has two twin beds, closet and full private bath. Between these two rooms, there is a TV/living area with a queen pullout couch and a common area with sink, fridge and microwave. A closet in this area houses the washer/dryer. The deck on this level is accessible from both the twin bedroom and the living area and is equipped with a porch swing, table for playing games or eating, lots of nice seating and access to the back yard, lake and dock.

Special features of The Perch include the tranquility of a special Lake Glenville location, immediate access to our backyard dock for boating and lake activities, private parking for up to three vehicles and a short walk to the Landings Restaurant.

Lake Glenville is one of the centerpieces of the Trillium community. This 1500-acre lake is a water sports paradise. Fed by three waterfalls, the lake is a wonderful venue for swimming, skiing and wakeboarding. Canoeing, kayaking and simply cruising supply much enjoyment, especially at dusk when the sun is setting behind the mountains that border the lake. Pontoon boats and canoes are available for rent on site, and there are other marinas on the lake that provide various types of boat rentals as well.

Membership in Trillium Links and Lake Club, which allows use of all Trillium amenities, is available to all renters. In addition to an exceptional clubhouse with breathtaking views, these amenities include a spectacularly scenic golf course, a chip and putt course, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a full service state-of-the-art fitness and massage center (including indoor tennis court, basketball, sauna, cardio and strength training equipment), swimming pool, fishing, hiking trails, horseback riding, the aforementioned boating, an attractive lake club, two restaurants, organized activities for both adults and children, and much more. Rivers, waterfalls, more lakes, and several national parks, including the Pisgah National Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, are nearby. Whitewater rafting and paddling and the fabulous Biltmore Estate are all within an easy drive. Asheville is also home to other attractions such as a zoo and a botanical garden.

A grocery store, farmers' market, and other antique, arts and crafts and retail opportunities are conveniently located in the mountain village of Cashiers just a few minutes from Trillium. The town of Highlands, where art and antique galleries and shops selling local crafts line the main street, is approximately 10 miles away. Along with upscale shopping and restaurants of all kinds, spa services are available there. For those who enjoy music, the Brevard Music Festival which takes place every summer is always a treat. And in the fall, the leafing season provides a colorful backdrop against which to appreciate the tranquil beauty of this extraordinary mountain setting.

We are eager to meet you and hope that you will come experience the bountiful activities, beauty and peacefulness of both Trillium and western North Carolina!

A delightful haven that soothes and stimulates the heart, mind, soul, and body

  • 5 of 5

The Perch is an absolutely delightful haven! Beautiful inside and very comfortable with every necessity for a stress free vacation at our finger tips...a gorgeous view of Lake Glenville from the porches and the rock terrace. We so enjoyed communing with nature on a variety of trails in the fabulous Trilium community and quaint local towns of Cashiers and Highlands. Trilium's Memorial Day Celebration was a special treat with great food, dancing to a live band, and a truly remarkable tribute to our veterans. We'll be going back to The Perch!!!The Perch is an absolutely delightful haven!

Beautful cabin with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "The Perch". The cabin was spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen contained every single tool necessary to make this a home away from home. We enjoyed cool breezes the entire week and with the windows open, the coolness was felt in every room. We started and ended every day on the beautiful porch overlooking the lake.


1. Spotless and beautifully decorated

2. Location in Trillium community.

3. Golf course was challenging and the views were amazing on every hole.

4. We stumbled upon an amazing hiking trail just down the street from the cabin.

5. Fairly close to the grocery store and other shopping in Cashiers

6. All levels of hiking located close to the Trillium Community

7. Loved sitting out on the dock at the end of the evening

8. The owners are very attentive. They were are hospitable and made sure we had everything needed to make this a memorable vacation (spot on!)


1. Hwy 107 is right across the lake from the cabin. There was significant road noise heard from the porches.

2. The cabin is also located in close proximity to a neighbor. The neighbors entertained the final weekend we were there and it was a bit noisy (only because their porch is right next to "The Perch" porch).


1. You can become a guest of the Trillium community for a fee of $185/week. We decided on the daily fee of $40. We felt it was difficult to figure out what the fee included. I wanted to participate in a tennis round robin but was told it was for members only but I could call the day of to see if they needed players. It was a bit confusing. We paid the fee to play golf (worth every penny).

2. We rented boats at Signal Marina. The rates were significantly less expensive than Trillium and located just across the lake so important if you prefer multi day rentals. Boats couldn't be rented after 5pm which is unfortunate given the evenings were a time we wished we could have been on the lake.

3. Bring lawn chairs. You are allowed to bring the owner's beautiful teak chairs down to the dock but they are fairly heavy and lawn chairs would probably be easier.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing review of The Perch! We understand the close proximity of the neighbors on one side. They do not come to Nc very often. When they are there, we find that the second level porch with its side by a waterfall or the stone porch on the lake level provide a quieter setting than the top level which is closer to the neighbors. We hope you will return for a visit and bring your favorite playlist just in case😁�😁�

Beautiful home and a terrific porch with view!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying here very much. It's cozy and in a lovely neighborhood with plenty of amenities and a nice drive to Cashiers. We didn't get to play golf here because they had just aerated the course. Also, FYI, you can't get tee-times before 1 pm because of rental status. The pro was nice enough to set us up at another great course that we enjoyed.

Confort and beauty all in one

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to head to the mountains instead of the beach which is our normal get away and what a great decision it was. The house was located right on the lake with a boat slip. We enjoyed eating all of our meals on the porch overlooking the water and my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine out there at sunset. There is plenty of room for everyone to sit and read a book or be on their device with the wifi. The two sitting areas made it possible for our teenage girls to have some space of their own downstairs. We rented a boat at the local marina and enjoyed a day on the water, taking occasional breaks were possible because of the boat slip that was located almost directly in front of the house. Another day we took a hike that was located just down the road (walking distance) from the house. There are plenty of TV's but we were so busy that they didn't come on much. Bedrooms were comfortable and each had it's own connecting large bath. We cooked most of the time in the well stock kitchen or gas grill. The house was clean,comfortable,charming with an upscale cabin feel. We are already talking about returning next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming to visit The Perch! We also love to vacation at the beach but there is something so very special about our lake place! Mountains with a lake- - so serene and so much to explore! We appreciate your beautiful comments. Would truly love to have to back!
