JUNE + AUG OPEN! LUXURY ON THE LAKE! BRING THE FAMILY + THE DOG! RENT OUR BOAT

Lake Glenville Lodge Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 Full bathrooms, sleeps 12. GREAT for family reunions

Fish from the private dock or canoe around the lake. OR RENT SEA RAY SKI BOAT OR PONTOON BOAT AT YOUR DOCK! Sit and rock on one of the wrap-around porches overlooking Lake Glenville. With 26 miles of shoreline and fish galore, Lake Glenville is the vacation spot for those who want to beat the heat or just get away to a beautiful mountain lake vista. Hiking, fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, or a round of championship golf at nearby resorts, are just a few of the activities available. This FAMILY friendly home is located DIRECTLY ON LAKE GLENVILLE, the largest and highest fresh water lake east of the Mississippi. Come visit now! Hike or take the canoe and tour the deep, cool water just outside your door. Remember your fishing pole! First class golfing is available at Trillium and Sapphire Valley courses. Nearby skiing is available in the winter and we now have boats for rent at your private dock on the lake. Family reunions-- our speciality! Bring everyone- grandma AND Fido!

Summer is THE BEST on the Lake!: There is never a dull moment at the lake-- whether water-skiing, viewing waterfalls, fishing, hiking, camping, shopping or just relaxing. Just being at the lake together makes special memories that no other place can match! There is truly 'something for everyone' to do. Turn the kids loose to jump in the lake or take the canoe while you sit on the porch rocker and just read a good book. Take the gang skiing, tubing, OR wakeboarding on the 20 ft SEA RAY with a new 357 hp MerCruiser engine. (RENT it at YOUR DOCK)

Go for a hike and view a waterfall of magnificent beauty; visit a local town and go antiquing; view mountain art at one of the many craft shows. Golf at one of the local top class courses. If you want moment to moment activity for all age groups, it is readily available. If you want relaxation, it is inherent in this 'getaway from it all'-paradise.

Think of summer 2014 now! This is the most popular time for cooling off at the lake

Fall leaves and THANKSGIVING in the mountains: Leaves are the big draw for the month of October, but September offers solitude and wonderful weather. Floridians enjoy September for the cool nights and the temperate days. Fall is a great time to relax and take in all the color and splendor that nature has to offer. Popular fall craft shows abound in the area and 'leaf watchers' take daily rides to see the changes throughout October. Special rates are available in Sept, Oct, Nov. early Dec, so there's no reason to hesitate and get away!

Thanksgiving is that special 'together time' for families. Bring the whole gang for the holidays and enjoy the open views after the leaves have fallen. Eat, drink, and be together and then take a long hike to lose those calories! Hiking is best during November as the leaves are down and the views are spectacular! Before everyone exits to go back to reality, pick out and chop down your very own Christmas tree--a family tradition that will make the Thanksgiving mountain holiday complete!

Christmas and New Years viewing the lake and mts.: Christmas is a wonderfully peaceful time in the mountains. The nearby towns of Highlands and Cashiers have special Christmas tree lighting festivals and everywhere the tiny Christmas lights abound. The lake is quiet, but the views are still unbelievable from the cozy lakefront living room. With a cup of hot cocoa and the fireplace blazing, many families have 'reconnected' with each other while working on a puzzle, playing cards, or having a game of Scrabble. Bring your jacket and mittens to chop down your own tree to make this Christmas a memorable time for the entire family. Let the Joy of Christmas draw you and yours to this beautiful family retreat.

Ring in the New Year in peace . If one of your resolutions is to avoid the rush, crowds, and traffic with drunk drivers on New Years Eve, then being on the lake is for you! Go out for a gourmet meal at a local restaurant and then relax with a 'toast to life' in front of the fireplace. Recharge yourself for the new year.

Beautiful cabin on Lake Glenville

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
My family had a wonderful vacation at the cabin. The area is gorgeous and there is so much to see and do. We stayed a week and were never bored. The hiking trails are amazing and there was a helpful guide book at the cabin, so we did not end up on a trail too difficult for the kids. We all had fun exploring the lake with the canoe and kayak. We loved that we could bring our dog with us, he had a great time too. It was so helpful to have the owners right next door to answer questions and make suggestions for things to do. We all want to come back. I would definitely recommend the cabin for anyone who wants a relaxing and fun vacation.

My family and I had such a great time staying at the cabin. The area is gorgeous. The local hiking trails are amazing. The cabin had a helpful guide of the trails so we found one the kids could handle. The kids had a great time in the kayak and canoe. It was fun to have a family vacation with the whole family (dog included). We all want to come back again next summer. A week was not enough time to see and do everything. The cabin had everything we needed, even a waffle maker. It was great to have the owners next door to answer any questions and to suggest things to see and do. I would absolutely recommend the cabin to anyone who wants to relax, get away and come home from a vacation rested and recharged.

The cabin was so beautiful and comfortable and the view of the lake was spectacular. My five days there was just what I needed, sitting on the porch and relaxing and getting out on the water. This is all around a perfect place to stay if you need a relaxing time.

Charming Lake Glenville Retreat

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2012
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
Our family enjoyed this spacious & comfortably furnished lake home nestled directly on a water access with beautiful views across the lake. Relaxing on the dock, viewing the autumn leaves, outings in the canoe & trips to the nearby Cornucopia Restuarant, coffee shops & Cashier's Farmers Market, were highlights for us. We found this lodge to have a family atmosphere with plenty of accomodations for a home-away- from- home feel. Even our dog enjoyed this pet-friendly place, with its variety of wildlife to observe. Owner was hospitable & helpful in everyway, which reflected the attention to detail & charm of this property. We would recommend it to others, & would look forward to coming back ourselves.
Recommended for:  Pet-friendly, Adventure Seekers, Sightseeing, Families with Teenagers
Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We hope to see you in the near future!

Luxury in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 12, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
This beautiful luxury home was our getaway for an entire week. Nestled in the mountains, overlooking beautiful Lake Glenville, this home was the perfect location for our family fun week of boating, waterskiing, hiking, and enjoying a glass of wine on the deck in the evenings. Hosted by the fantastic Carpenter family, we enjoyed lovely pontoon boat rides around the lake and learned about the area's interesting history. In nearby Cashiers, we found gourmet restaurants and quaint gift shops. Strolling down the lane. Relaxing on the dock. Spending time with family. What could be better? We can hardly wait to come back next year and do it all over again. Thanks for a great time!

Great for Family Reunions! Room for everyone!

This high end, expansive home is DIRECTLY ON THE LAKE in the mountains at 3700 feet above sea level. Lake Glenville is a resort area for outdoor activities all year round. Summer brings so much to do with boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, or golfing. Just minutes away are both Cashiers or Highlands where many enjoy shopping for antiques and works of art. Fall craft festivals are local events, and winter brings fun with snow skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. Any time and any season is a great time in the mountains on the lake! Most of all, it is a great area to relax with family and to enjoy the cooler temperatures in summer, Fall leaves, or snow skiing.

Other Activities: TWO BOATS ARE AVAILABLE.

1) 20FT 'SMOKER CRAFT' FISHING/CRUISING PONTOON BOAT, Live bait well; seating for 8-10 people.

Competitive rates: Daily@$275. Three days: @$700; Five days@1050; Weekly@$1400

2) 21ft SEA RAY BOWRIDER with 357 hp engine. Fast boating for tubing, skiing, or wakeboarding. 8 people. Rates: Weekly@ $1875; 5 days @ $1550; 3 days @ $1050; Daily @ $365.

All rentals are to be returned with a FULL TANK of gas. Liability waiver required.

Golf: World class golfing is available at Sapphire Valley and Trillium Resorts. Golf in cool summer temperatures while making your way through the courses above 3000 feet. This is a sought after destination and your rental home is only 3 minutes from the finest course at Trillium. Pack your clubs and get away to the splendor of a mountain golf paradise and stay on the Lake.

If there are others who don't share your golfing zeal, they can relax on the dock or go into the nearby towns for shopping and lunch at a gourmet restaurant. (Leave the credit card! You won't need it at the golf course!)

Ski: Skiing is available at Sapphire Valley (15 minutes away) and Maggie Valley (1 hour away). Not exactly the slopes of the Rockies, but definitely fun for those who are still amateurs. Equipment rental is very affordable, as well. A new snow tubing area has been added and seems to be as popular with the younger folks as downhill skiing.

Maggie Valley is just an hour away and has more challenging slopes. They also rent equipment on site.

When you are all worn out, return home to sit in front of the fireplace with a hot cocoa and a great movie!

Older guests have the ability to be with everyone in the main living areas of the home, as the master suite with private bath is on the main level....Kitchen, dining and Dish TV are on both lodge levels. Bring the little people! Baby gates are available for the added safety of young ones. Gentle slope to the dock about 75 feet from the porch. (This is a big plus in our area.) Walk to lake is not wheelchair accessible, however is not difficult, as can be a big problem at other local rentals. Mid week cleaning and baby sitting available upon request.
