We continue to be thrilled with the response we have received from our visitors 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 of our place 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.
We recently added a lakefront rock patio which is a perfect setting for enjoying all the lake has to offer!
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 at a very reasonable cost through the sales office. 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!
