Our visit was fantastic. This is a place to be away from it all while having access to near by towns and a huge amount of hiking trails, fishing, and landmarks.
The property could be hard for some to find due to bad service once you’re in the mountain although it is super easy to access from highway 321. Just use the address given before arrival and you’ll be fine.
Boone is the nearest town about 25 min down the mountain, full of life and great foods plus everything you may need during your stay.
There was wildlife walking through the property and a small creek just down the hill from the cottage.
The housekeepers live very close to the property and they will help you with anything you may need during your stay, there is a land line phone in the cottage to reach them and any place you may need to call, there is no internet and very bad cell coverage, however that may be the positive. There is also a nice tv area with the channels you may need.
This property is truly hiding in the mountain tops, with ease to get back on the road and visit several town.
The views from the deck are outstanding.
Magnificent ! We checked in after dark (6:30 lol) but it was well lite an easy, especially since it was just my son and I until the hubby made it in after work.
They were not kidding when they said the kitchen was fully stocked with every need. I love to cook and grill. We checked in, unloaded, prepared a steakhouse style meal and had the most relaxing evening just taking in the surrounds with the warmth of the home and sounds of nature outside!
We launched our boat and brought it back to the dock where we enjoyed fishing off the dock (nice size bass caught) and a beautiful ride around the lake. Remember it’s November and it’s 24 degrees wind chill factor but it was the best boat ride around the cove! The home has extra warm and comfy blankets we could use to keep us warm on our ride! And if we had not brought the boat, their John boat would been our means of transportation to view the beautiful scenery around this home and lake!
A weekend was way to short!
Most importantly, from a woman that is OCD about cleanliness and sterility (OR scrub nurse), this home was pristine clean with all kitchen appliances, pots, pans, glasses, bakeware, utensils and bathrooms, linens, etc way above par.
The communication and help from the owner were amazing! It was like messaging a friend!
An unspoken advantage was that our cell service did not work here. You can connect to the WiFi, make WiFi phone calls, use the house phones, message people and have internet on the phone. We had family drop in and sent the ones who needed to know in case of emergency the home phone. It was simi-unpluggin. We had the great aspects of technology without the negative ones!
Our family feels so blessed to have stumbled across this Casa Lago!
