WATERFRONT HOME - LAKE JAMES - BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS - BREATHTAKING VIEWS

Asheville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath, sleeps 10

This nearly new custom lakefront home is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains just 10 minutes from I-40 and 40 minutes east of downtown Asheville, NC. This 5,000 sf home will surely become one of your favorite places on Earth.

This upscale 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home with a 2-car garage sleeps 10 people very comfortably. It is set in a secluded and somewhat rural gated community but is within a 10 minute drive of grocery stores, restaurants, the beautiful new YMCA and the McDowell Mission Hospital.

A day at the Lake: Awaken to a cup of fresh ground coffee on the covered mahogany deck and enjoy a picture perfect sunrise view over the glassy-smooth waters of Lake James and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. After breakfast you might dive from the private dock located in a protected cove and into the cool, pure, refreshing water of the 200 ft deep Lake James, which is fed by two rivers and boasts 140 miles of 90 percent undeveloped coastline. Take the two kayaks, which are provided along with life jackets, for a paddle around the Big Island. Be on the watch for turtles or blue herons. Bring your own boat and tie up to the twenty foot long dock. When not swimming, fishing, boating , relaxing in the sun or shade, you will enjoy pool, foosball, ping-pong, or darts in the lower level playroom with 8ft tall sliding glass walls that open onto a large cobblestone patio with plenty of seating for all. The playroom and the patio, like all other rooms have the same breathtaking views of the lake and the mountains.

When you've had enough sun, put your feet up on one of the ottomans or enjoy one of the rocking chairs you will find in my favorite room, the covered mahogany deck which will easily seat all 10 people. It is very private and of course has the same incredible views. The Big Green Egg cooker will make the best food you have ever eaten.

Once the sun goes down, be sure to sit on the uncovered cobblestone deck, watch an incredible sunset, locate the Big Dipper and watch for falling stars. You'll listen to a symphony of bullfrogs and whip-poor-wills.

Before bed, unwind in the whirlpool tub. You'll want to get to bed early so you can do it all over again tomorrow!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5
We loved everything about this home. From the large living space with open kitchen and dining area, to the covered porch with the Big Green Egg (that we kept lit each night), to the large playroom (perfect for three young boys), and finally to the nearby dock where we parked our rented pontoon boat, this home was the perfect family getaway with a beautiful view. After one big trip to the grocery store, we never left the property or Lake James until our vacation ended. Thank you for opening your gracious home to us.

Takes My Breathe Away

  • 5 of 5
This is the 4th year we have stayed at this house for a week. After the first year we were spoiled and knew we would keep coming back. We used to go to the beach every summer, but my husband and all three kids (11-16) prefer the lake and this house over the beach. While here, we are able to relax and take things slow, making wonderful memories.

Anything you could possibly want or need for a lake vacation can be found at this house. Linens and cleaning supplies are provided, as well as just about everything else! We finally mastered the Green Egg this year too.

The views from the two story open living room are fabulous. Coffee on the porch over the lake turns into hours because it is such a beautiful view. We loved watching the hummingbirds too.

We love taking the kayaks out, and every morning try to make it just a bit further around the lake.

The kids love playing pool and ping pong in the downstairs game room.

Cheri and Richard are wonderfuls hosts. They didn't even fuss when I accidently set the alarm off once :)

This is a beautiful house inside and out!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying in this amazing house. The views were breathtaking from everywhere in the house. The lake was pristine despite having so much rain the week before. We enjoyed fishing, swimming and kayaking on the lake. The kids enjoyed the game room and the large selection of movies when we had down time.
The owner maintains the home with every amenity one could ever need on vacation. It was a very comfortable place for 4 adults and 6 kids. Everyone had their own space, and my husband and I had the beautiful master suite downstairs which has a balcony that provided many mornings for quiet cups of coffee.
We hiked at Lake James Park, Linville Falls and Grandfather mountain. We went into Morganton and enjoyed the small town atmosphere.
I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing vacation.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5
This elegant home is situated on a quiet cove of this large lake. It was beautifully furnished and perfectly set up for visitors. There is a large boat dock for swimming and sunning, a large game room with pool table and pingpong, and a charming covered deck near the dining area for enjoying the view or for outdoor meals. We couldn't have enjoyed our time more, and would absolutely look for opportunities to stay there again.
