Come away to the mountains! Our location is at an elevation of 3800 feet in the southwest corner of the North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. Here you are away from it all – the city, the noise, the traffic and close to the beauty of nature and the fresh mountain air!
Captiva Mountain Village is located above Lake Glenville, a pristine clear water lake nestled in the Carolina mountains. It spans 6 miles in length and has 26 miles of shoreline and 3 major waterfalls to explore.
Our abode will sleep six, with two bedrooms, a queen sleeper sofa, and one bath with a separate vanity area. On cool nights, the wood burning stove in the living room is a delight. The French doors open out to a large deck with a mountain view; a great spot for outdoor dining. The spacious dining room seats six. The eat-in kitchen is well stocked for your cooking and baking needs. The altitude here keeps the temperature cool and we do not have A/C, which is rarely needed. Fans are available. The gas grill is just outside the kitchen. Make use of the full size washer and dryer in the laundry room. All linens are provided. Smart TV (no cable) where you can access your Netflix, Amazon, and more through WiFi; also phone line with unlimited long distance. We have DVD and VHS, and a library of movies, as well as a variety of games and puzzles.
The cabin is situated on one acre, with ample parking. The location has easy access from the main road. There are many trails and hiking options. We are homeschool friendly with resource books, field microscope, printer, and more to conduct studies of "flora and fauna."
Our small community offers a lake lot with picnic pavilion, beach area and boat dock with boat slips. The lake offers all water sports and three waterfalls to visit.
