The owner of this home is also the designer and builder of the home. I am a professor of Construction Technology at Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, Florida. It took me nine months to design and over two years to build this extra-special home. I personally worked on and was involved in every aspect of the construction, even to the point of custom hand making one-of-a-kind: queen beds, kitchen table, and the pine furniture cabinets in the kitchen.

My favorite things to do: Spend time with my 5 children, fish (we caught 86 keeper size fish last summer on Santeetlah -white bass, walleye, lake trout, large mouth bass), and water ski.

I am a licensed builder in both Florida and North Carolina (NC License No. 62831) and was initially licensed in Michigan. I teach all the building construction courses that lead to an A.S. Degree in Building Construction Technology. Builders, their employees, subcontractors, suppliers, and some county building officials enroll in my courses to earn a college degree. I have worked in the construction industry for over 27 years and on a tremendous range of projects: hospitals, stores, industrial buildings and warehouses, projects for the US Army, US Air Force, US Coast Guard, custom homes, renovations, restaurants, auto industry, churches, and schools.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Before building here, we took a family vacation with the goal of finding the best mountain lake to buy property and build. Since we live on the water in Florida we wanted more than 'flat or rolling land with a lake' since we already had that. We wanted to change the lifestyle and environment as much as we could and still be within a day's drive of South Florida. That ruled out many states and left the mountain areas of North Carolina as the best of all worlds. We then literally looked at the NC map and drove to every lake that was big enough to appear on the map and was on the western half of the state (not interested in rolling hills). We narrowed it down to 3 lakes and then considered other factors such as driving distance to stores and how safe or easy the drive would be. The other two lakes had roads that were too scary for my wife and driving age daughters, besides taking 30 min or more just to reach some sort of store. The winner was Santeetlah in almost every category. (What good is a nice lake if it is crowded with boats and cottages) We absolutley love our choice.

The unique features and benefits of this home are almost too long to list so to name a few:

Being a new home, everything is clean, crisp, and fresh.

There is no long walk to the water, the home is right on the water's edge.

Every room except for the bonus room and bathrooms have oversized windows and a view of the water and mountains. (Even the stairs leading to the basement has a window)

The driveway and road is at house level for super easy and safe access. Plus there is plenty of parking area unlike some homes that have you park on the shoulder of the road.

You do not have cottages right next to you as many of the other homes on the lake have.

You have a choice of a covered screened-in porch, open upper and lower decks, covered front porch, or covered rear porch area. So even if it rains there are places to sit outside.

There are no other docks right next to you, you can sunbathe and swim in privacy.

Nice Interior!

  • 4 of 5
Nice new large home. Interior was very well done! Great home for fishing in a boat on the lake or from their private pier. We rented a pontoon boat from Jim (aka "The Mayor")(Neighbor) & he also helped us catch some nice fish. Kids had fun in the game room. Great selection of DVD movies, which was nice since there is no Wifi & cell phone reception is spotty at best. Owner was very easy to work with. Returned Security Deposit immediately.

Wish we would have known that it is a dry county. So pick-up wine, beer, etc. prior to arrival if so desired.

Nice grocery store within 10 minutes. Not too many restaurant choices. There is a McDonalds, Subway etc. The Mexican restaurant, can't remember the name, but there is only one, is actually very good & so is Lynn's Place - these are about your only two choices. The self-proclaimed #1 restaurant in-town "Carolina Kitchen" is closed & no one is certain if it will re-open. Everyone in town was very nice - great people!

There was five of us & unless we were doing something wrong we really had to spread out the showers or no one had hot water. The property is for sale & we had some really nice bikers ring the doorbell trying to find out information about the property.

Great place for those who like to cook & fish off of a nice deck.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in our home and seeing that renters have a grand vacation experience. We send each renter an extensive 13 page information packet before check-in. We do tell people that it is a dry county, and that the internet is on the slower side. My family of 7, with 4 women, have vacationed here with no shortage of hot water. (The home has two hot water heaters) We strive to provide a great vacation experience.

What a stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome week long stay at this beautiful home! The pictures do not do don't do this home justice. We relaxed by the water, fished, and went kayaking on the lake. The water views are beautiful from every aspect. We will definitely be back again.

Lovely lake setting!

  • 5 of 5
I, along with 5 other 60+ youngsters enjoyed a long weekend on Lake Santeetlah in a great house! The house is well designed and nicely outfitted with everything visitors need to enjoy the lake. The owner has done a remarkable job in anticipating and meeting needs. We rented a pontoon boat from a neighbor and enjoyed meandering around the lake for 2 days. Thanks for providing us an excellent house and great information. A friendly wildlife officer recommended Pasqualino's in Bryson City, which was wonderful for dinner on Friday night and I would like to recommend Cafe Rel in Franklin. My husband and I were referred there by an innkeeper in Waynesville a couple of years ago and we drove there for lunch on Saturday. The menu is great and the homemade desserts are fantastic.

Phenominal stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
Gary, you have created an oasis of peace and tranquility! After carving up some corners at the Dragon, your place was perfect for relaxation.

When I woke up Saturday, there were a couple of ducks quacking as they flew across the lake and a bald eagle was perched on a limb waiting for prey to appear. The environment is serene. Thank you for providing expendable baking pans as I forgot to get them when I went for our bbq groceries (thanks for the Ingles "tag", too, as it saved us money at the grocery store). Robbinsville is about a 6-minute drive, and the Dragon about 10-mins - a perfect location!!

Your design and building skills are top-notch, and we enjoyed every minute while we were there. Thank you again for your generous hospitality...
