3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath, Modern Open Floor Plan With Sweeping Lake And Mountain View
Breathtaking views of Lake James and the Blue Ridge Mountains from almost every room of this modern, 3BR/2.5BA home, with soaring floor to ceiling windows. New construction offers all the modern conveniences, with clean lines and efficiency.
As lovely as this new home is, with its fresh soothing palette, we are positive that the views will steal your heart!
This home comes fully equipped for 6 to 8 people, including linens and towels. The kitchen is well stocked and spacious, open to dining, and of course, has abundant lake views! The furnishings are comfortable, yet well appointed, throughout to make your stay even more enjoyable!
The master bedroom and bath are on the main level and offer large picturesque views, while bedroom 2 and 3 are on the lower level with the family room, and 2nd full bath. The views are just as amazing from this level, with floor to ceiling, 180-degree views from the family room, and large window views from both bedrooms.
The lower level family room is spacious and includes a full size billiard table, large leather sectional, and big screen TV.
The fun continues outside, where the upper level has an open view deck and gas grill. The lower level has a large patio that leads to the fire pit area. There is also corn hole and a horseshoe pit to enjoy in the evenings. Since this lovely home sits high atop a ridge overlooking Lake James, you definitely can’t miss the sunsets. We have also just added a foot path that leads to the water's edge, so you can fish from shore, swim, or possibly kayak. 2 kayaks are provided onsite.
You will also have wide sweeping views, which will include Table Rock, Hawksbill, Mount Mitchell, and Linville Gorge. All of these beautiful places are right in our backyard, which is why Burke County Chamber of Commerce calls us Nature’s Playground. Burke County is thriving with outdoor activities including hiking, biking, running, greenways, parks, canoeing, kayaking, and trail systems. Downtown Morganton is also alive with outdoor concerts, live music venues, art studios, pottery, craft beer and wine, and many unique dining and shopping experiences.
We are located in the Foothills, only 20 minutes from Morganton, 45 minutes from Asheville, an hour from Blowing Rock, Boone, and Banner Elk. We are sure that you will feel totally relaxed and away from the world, but here, you are never far from your next great adventure.
We offer a 100% refund if cancellation is given with 90 days advance notice.

Why Karen Hennessee chose Morganton
This gorgeous homesite was purchased because of the view, and the owner began the custom build within the first year because he was so excited about the property and potential of home. They plan to use the home, as well as share it with others to enjoy, for many years to come!
What makes this House unique
The open modern design of this home offers views from almost anywhere, upstairs or down. The windows are large and take in the 180 degree views of the lake and mountains. You really feel on top of the world and like you could reach out and touch the endless water.

Dream Christmas & NYE vacation home
We absolutely loved this home so much that we spent 2 days just enjoying the views, cooking breakfast, building a bon fire, kayaking to the private island, hiking the trail, and we even got to see the bald eagle fly right by the window! Downtown Morganton is just a short 15 minute ride and filled with wonderful restaurants such as Wisteria GastroPub and Root & Vine. Jonas tubing is just 30 minutes into the mountains. Thank you for allowing us to make these beautiful memories in your wonderful home!
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us and future guests! We love to hear about all the adventures that our guest go on and what they find, and like during their stays! We hope that you will come and visit us again soon, maybe explore during the summer season. Safe Travels!
Beautiful home with stunning views. Who could ask for anything more!
This was one of our best vacations ever. The house was spacious and tastefully furnished, the beds were comfortable, and the views incredible from every room. It was a pleasure to cook in the gourmet kitchen which was well stocked with everything we needed and more. Afternoons were spent playing pool followed by breathtaking sunsets, and relaxing around the fire pit. Even though it was the off season, there were still plenty of things to do in the area. It was too cold for a swim or kayaking, but was nice to be able to walk down the trail to the waters edge and look out at the scenery. The check in/check out process was very easy as was loading and unloading. We didn't want to leave and even considered inquiring about staying another week. Can't wait to go back.
Thank-you so much for sharing your experience about the stay! We are always happy to hear from our guests and what they discovered while visiting. The views are great in all seasons, and especially when it snows. We hope that you will come back and stay soon! I can give you more suggestions for Spring and Summer. Happy Holidays!
The location of this house is awesome, beautiful location. However, things go rapidly downhill from there. During our stay, the only living quarters that were habitable were the master bedroom and the living room located on the upper floor, as the entire lower floor with two bedrooms was infested by ladybugs and stinkbugs. Also, the Queen size bed on the lower floor was broken and unusable during our stay. So, because of the bugs and the crappy bed, our grown up children had to sleep on the couch upstairs. The issues were reported, but the bug issue remained unchanged during the entire stay. The bed was fixed, but it was still not worth sleeping on due to the poor quality of the repair and the bug issue. The window blinds in the upstairs area were automated and had a mind of their own, meaning several would not open or close all the way, thus detracting from the wonderful views of the lake area, it was not a good system. There was also only one TV on the upper floor which was in the master bedroom. As the lower area was not usuable, this meant our children were bored at night. This was our fist time to stay in a rental home, and I will seriously have to think hard about staying at another rental home again. This was a higher priced rental, and we expected much more, but what we actually got was much less.
Thank you for the feedback and please know we try to respond to questions and concerns quickly to ensure your comfort as well as the comfort of future guests. Ladybugs can indeed be pesky and we do currently have a pest contract in place with regularly scheduled treatments because we take bugs seriously. We will be taking extra treatment precautions moving forward to better ward off ladybugs. Our cleaning staff was contacted as soon as the bug issue was reported to us and removal, cleaning, and additional spraying was done on possible points of entry. I certainly understand that no one wants ladybugs in the house, and we acted quickly to solve that issue. Separately, thank you for reporting your concern with the bed on the lower level. We were unaware of this but sent the handyman the same day it was reported, and the one broken slat which caused the mattress sagging was fixed. Neither of these visits required the guest to be present or disturbed. For the window shades, they operate automatically powered by batteries. When the batteries fail it causes the shades to stall, and we will be implementing a regular schedule for battery replacement moving forward. We take pride in the condition of the property and your feedback resulted in prompt corrective actions on our part. We constantly strive to exceed the expectations of guests.
wonderful respite, calm and healing
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We loved the view, the kids enjoyed playing pool, we all swam daily, the kids happily kayaked around the lake. Wonderful location with attention to creating a restful break.
Thank-you so much for letting us know, we love to hear from our guests! We find the views are very calming and the water is so clear and refreshing. We hope that you will return for a visit soon! Fall is also a great time to visit Lake James.
This house has the most fabulous views of Lake James from every room in the house! It is nicely decorated and has many nice amenities inside and out. We enjoyed the fire pit and our morning coffee on the upper deck. I will definitely come back to this house again!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home! The nice thing about this home's design, is the great views that can be seen from just about all areas. We will be adding some more features both indoor and outside, to make the stays even more enjoyable, so please check back with us!
Great Girl Weekend!
Fabulous time shared in your home to celebrate 50th birthday with friends. We loved the views, morning coffee on the porch and nighttime talks at the fire pit under the stars. Music system was wonderful and house was well appointed with everything we needed. Great location to easily access shopping in Ashville and Black Mountain, NC, hiking on the BRP and wine tasting at Silver Fork. Will definitely return!
Thank-you for your kind and helpful comments! We love when guests share their experiences and finds with us and others who are searching online. We are nestled in the Foothills of the mountains, and are so close to many exciting things to do. Even if you stay in and relax, we have some of the best views around. Please come visit us again soon!
