  • Enjoy the REAL flavor of the lake!

    "It's with some hesitation that I write this review. You know how you happen upon something that you feel is a treasure, share it with others, and word spreads, then YOU suddenly have limited access to "YOUR" find? I don't want that to happen with this sweet lake house; however, it's not fair to the fantastic owners to not let others in on the secret. This was our second time staying in this lake house. Here's the deal: This is one of the older homes on the lake (we LOVE that), so it offers that wonderful campy feel. There are NO steps from your car to the back door; however, as with all the houses, there are stairs down to the lake and (NEW) dock. The front porch, overlooking the lake and mountains, has got to be one of the best. It offers a place to dine, ample seating, a gas fireplace/stove, and a great place to sleep. It's where we spent most of our time on both visits, and where we always ate when not out on the lake. The kitchen is well-stocked, though no dishwasher (typical of these lake houses) and offers a large eating area. The living room is bright with two sets of sliding glass doors looking out to the screened porch. Despite being heavily shaded, the house is bright. The heavy shade and being on the lake result in humidity in the house, but it's not anything you can't deal with. Due to the one bath situation, you'd probably want to stay here only with those with whom you're rather close. :) This is the perfect place to really get away. Cell phone reception is extremely limited, but there is wi-fi at the house. We don't know about the satellite/cable situation. We only turned on the television one evening to watch one of the movies in the collection. Restaurants are limited in the area. We preferred to cook at the house almost every night. Also, this is a "dry" county. You'll have to drive quite a way to purchase alcohol, so bring it with you. You're entrenched in nature here and on a lake, so enjoy it! The owners are truly great! Both times they got back with us immediately. We had no problems during either stay, but I feel that they would have been very responsive. And both times they welcomed our dogs. All in all, this is THE BEST deal on Lake Santeetlah. Now you're in on the secret."

  • We loved O'Kelley's Farmhouse!

    "We decided to go to NC to get away from the heat and the beached in FL. After looking at several properties around the Asheville area we deiced to rent O'Kelley's Farmhouse. We liked to old look, the open green fields and over course the kids were excited about the goats. Upon arrival everything was as described and pictured. It felt like we stepped back in time and O'Kelley's Farmhouse is like a mini museum. You can spend quite some time just walking around the house and explore the interior. The house is just a couple of minutes form the Blue Ridge Parkway, with spectacular views of the mountains. The kids woke up every morning running outside to feed the goats and just explore the area. We had friends that stayed at a hotel downtown Asheville and they regretted not staying with us in the Farmhouse. O'Kelley's Farmhouse definitely made our vacation feel even more special. I would recommend this property to anyone that want to visit the Asheville area."

  • Beautiful home with loads of privacy!

    "We had a great time at this beautiful mountain home! Bruce was wonderful to work with - very responsive and informative. The home itself was welcoming and grand at the same time. The screened in porch with outdoor fireplace, seating area and dining table was fabulous. We spent a lot of time out there enjoying the nice breezes and wonderful view. Making s'mores in the evening was a treat. The home was well appointed and decorated with tasteful artwork and furniture, while still feeling very comfortable. The master suite was huge! Plenty of room to relax. It was nice to have bathrooms for every bedroom. Everyone had their own space in the house, while still enjoying the common areas together. The sun greeted us every morning through the large back windows of the house - no window treatments on them brought the outdoors inside, which was a nice touch. Michael at the Nature Center on property was awesome! He spent time educating us about snakes and other local "neighbors" - he even gave us a mini birds of prey encounter with one of the hawks at the center. Hope, the bald eagle, was also amazing. Highly suggest stopping in to check it out. We also ventured to the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for flat water kayaking - approx. 35 minutes from the front gates. Mike was our guide and he was excellent. Highly recommend going there, if only to people watch. Walked around downtown Sylva - some cute shops and cafes. Just remember that small downtown area shops close early, so give yourself enough time to explore. Overall, we had a great mountain vacation! I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away from it all, while still having ammenities not far away."
