Beautiful home in a very relaxing laid back setting.
This was our first time to Lake James and we will definitely be back! This was the perfect rental house for two couples and our four boys. The home was beautiful and sits on a nice private cove on the lake. The walk down to the lake is steep, but there is a really great shady beach area down by the lake where we set up our Eno hammocks and took out our kayaks. The fire pit area is right up by the house and there is a nice picnic table out there where we make a campfire with the boys and had smores. Terri was very helpful and a great host.
Thank you Katie for taking the time to write a review. So many people make rental decisions based on the reviews. We are glad you enjoyed the beauty of the home as well as the lake and area. You and your family were great guests and that makes it easy to be a great host, we always hope our guests are happy with the house and this beautiful lake. Please come back and see us again, you should have my information and you are always welcomed to call me direct. Again thank you
Luxury in the mountains!
Arrived on Thursday 07/28 and stayed 3 nights. First impression was awesome once you get passed the extremely steep driveway (which is kind of the norm for a home built into the side of a mountain). All finishes inside are luxurious and looks to be a brand new home (the basement was still in construction). Only real hiccup was that the propane ran out on us the second day but the grocery store was 5 minutes up the road and we exchanged the propane and were reimbursed at the end of the stay. We brought our boat and a slip was available at the neighborhood dock that was a 2 minute drive from the home. There is lake access from the home but I don't recommend swimming there just because its really shallow and it's mostly mud, but awesome views down by the water and you could kayak there probably. The path that leads down to the water behind the home gets EXTREMELY steep, and you will need some sort of sturdy footwear to get down there, please do not try flip flops. Back deck with the grill is awesome, especially the views of the mountains. Fire pit to the side of the house was great, we used it 2 nights in a row. Plenty of space in each bedroom and the home was well-stocked. Overall, I would say we loved the home!
We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our mountain retreat and we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Like many lots on Lake James the lot is steep and we try to set expectations with our guest. The one benefit we have found to the steepness of the lot is the great views of the mountain which I believe you were able to experience first hand. Thanks again and we hope you have a chance to return in the near future. The Owners
