Feel as though you have stepped back in time to an age when fishing poles, sleds, & hiking boots were always ready and waiting by the door. When afternoons were spent climbing trees, discovering mountain trails, or just reading a good book in the shade. When roaring, wood burning, fireplaces warmed your heart & handcrafted quilts warmed your toes.
Our cabin at Lake James is perfectly situated in the middle of a lush forest on 9+ private acres. The cabin offers our guests the rare opportunity to make yourselves at home on one of the cleanest mountain lakes in the southeast United States. There is a very prominent water feature with a stone waterfall and in-ground spa directly behind the house and in plain view from most rooms. Meander up the back path to a view of the mountains, water, sunset, and sunrise from the adjacent lot. Walk down a path through the forest to the other edge of the property and step into a quiet cove. Adjacent to the property, you will find acres and acres of hiking trails that meander through the forest and by the lake's edge.
Inside the cabin, there are 3 bedrooms (2 queen, 1 double) and 2 baths. Additionally, you will find a sleeper sofa, a daybed, and a very large window seat with a very thick cushion. The cabin is very handicap friendly ranch plan with a very gently sloping sidewalk around to the back door (on the same level as house); a wide hallway; wide doorways; hardwood floors throughout (with the exception of a washable river rock floor in one bath); and a wheelchair friendly master bathroom with open rimless (European style) shower, handicap grab bars, wall mounted sinks, lever faucet handles, and elevated toilet in master bath.
