About Julie Lapkoff

Being in the area is a big part of me. I would choose no other place to live, work and play. Thus stands the reason why I am a realtor and vacation rental owner. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have: (828) 273-6607

Julie Lapkoff purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Julie Lapkoff chose Clyde

I chose to build this property from ground up with the vacationer in mind. Having owned rentals for several years and gone through remodeling and redesigning vacation rentals, I thought it was time for vacation renters to a luxury cabin built just for them.

Wonderful home and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay at Jewel in the Skye. Seeing the lighting bugs was an unexpected fireworks display during our stay in early June. I had seen lighting bugs all my life but never like we saw during our stay. 10's of 1000's flashing in the fields is not an over statement. It was amazing!

The house is great and the views are awesome

  • 5 of 5

The lane driving up to the place was cool but narrow and it added to the charm of the place. The views are great and the fog in the valley look, made for great pictures. I hated to leave and hope to come back.

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible! By far the best house we have booked through VRBO. Breathtaking views! Loved working with Julie. She was so kind, and you could tell she put a lot of detail in to every area of the house for her guest.
