Lake James House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Go Jump in the Lake! Summer at the lake can't be beat. This is the perfect summer getaway, located directly on Lake James. If you're looking for fun on the water, gorgeous scenery, exciting nearby excursions, and beautiful weather, this lake house offers it all. Located on Lake James, a clear, fresh water lake- one the most beautiful lakes in NC, boasting 150 miles of shoreline with breathtaking mountain views. Situated near the end of a private cove and no-wake zone, this lake house offers a double decker dock with upper level with picnic table, floats, kayaks, life jackets, a swim out platform (perfect for smaller kids and to launch the kayaks), ladder and two chaise lounges. Lots to do nearby (if you find yourself ever wanting to leave the lake)-only 20 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway and amazing lookouts. Dine at the famous Mountain View Restaurant with endless views, go gem mining, white water rafting, zip lining, hiking in the Pisgah National Forest, golfing, antiquing, and don't miss The Biltmore and Grove Park Inn in Asheville. Only 30-45 minutes away, visit Grandfather Mtn, Blowing Rock, Mt. Mitchell, Linville Gorge (the grand canyon of the Carolinas) , waterfalls and caverns, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure (where Dirty Dancing was filmed) or go snow skiing in the winter- several popular ski resorts abound. The nearby towns of Nebo, Marion and Morganton offer all conveniences and supplies.

This cozy 1,400 square foot 3/2 house is fully furnished with linens, towels, dishes, cookware, utensils, washer & dryer, iron, fireplace, propane grill, TV, DVD, board games, books, outdoor patio furniture & cushions, and 2 complimentary kayaks. All you need when you get here are groceries!

This lake experience can't be beat- it's especially perfect for families, allowing kids to enjoy the great outdoors and get back to nature, and couples will enjoy the solitude and relaxation. Once you stay here, you'll keep coming back!

About The Owner

Our family loves the scenery that NC and especially this Lake House provides! We love the topography, mountain views, and fresh water lake. We love the fact that this house and location provide such diverse activities for all seasons.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Lake James

The location puts you right in the middle of so many activities, and the lake is relaxing and fun. The double decker dock and clear fresh water beg you to stay and float, kayak and boat.

What makes this house unique

Private, wooded yard, porch and dock lets you enjoy seclusion, while the lake is bustling with activity during peak summer. The double decker dock provides family fun- jumping in the lake, lounging, picnicing, and watersports. Dine out on the upper level, complete with picnic table. When you want to venture out, you can do it all in a day trip, and come back to the lake house to relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at the lake. The water was delightful. Your kitchen was well furnished and we had all that we needed. Thanks for renting out your house - it was good for us.

Wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Visited Donna's house end of July/early August 2014. Nice relaxing home that is well-equipped. My 12 and 14 year old sons loved jumping off top of dock and swimming in lake. They took the kayaks out frequently despite a few days of rainy cooler weather. It's a beautiful lake best explored by boat if you have access to one. Thanks for opening your home to my family.

Swim in this beautiful, clear, fresh water lake, two kayaks available, along with floats and water toys-you won't want to get out of the lake in the summer. Only 45 minutes to Asheville and the famous Biltmore Estate, vibrant downtown with dining and nightlife. 20 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway, offering higher elevation with gorgeous views and lookouts. An hour to snow skiing destinations.
