This beautiful custom home is the perfect retreat for your special gathering with your family and friends. Our spacious luxury home has over 6,500 square feet and every amenity to ensure an awesome and memorable experience for everyone in your group...whether that is quiet time relaxing and enjoying gorgeous views over beautiful Lake James, action packed days enjoying the lake, kayaking and canoeing, exploring natural ‘adventure islands’ (undeveloped islands), fishing, tubing, water skiing, and boating; or off the lake, hiking trails and mountains, spelunking caverns, or mountain biking; then perhaps joining up again in the evening for s’mores around the fire pit, friendly challenges in the game room, a favorite movie in the home theater, or cozy gatherings around the stone fireplaces.

The home is built with natural materials throughout; gorgeous hickory floors, extensive stone and custom iron work, exposed beams, wood paneled vaulted ceilings, and 10' 4' ceilings on main level. The house uniquely combines luxury amenities with natural materials and rustic accents to enhance your mountain experience right on the lake!

The wonderful large gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home with granite, top end appliances (Wolfe and SubZero), a massive central island with prep sink, breakfast nook with long table, and counter bar with comfy barstools. The dining room has a fabulous 72' round table with bench seats and lazy susan - perfect for great conversation with a large group! Each of the two inviting living room areas has cozy quality seating, a stone gas fireplace, and a wall of full height glass doors for views and access outdoors. A huge game room includes pool table with ping pong top, foosball, Wii video game system with games including Rock Band, game table, and electric piano.

The family game closet is full of games for all tastes and is complete with jigsaw puzzles. The soundproof home theater features stadium seating and an 82” TV. The kitchenette/wet bar on the lower level is perfect for refreshments and snacks. If you are looking for a nice quiet place you can head off to the sun-room boasting the best views in the house with awesome chaise lounge, or a cozy seat in the loft or study area, or a quiet spot in a hammock or chair on the deck or patio. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spots!

Electronics include stereo with Ipod and Pandora hookup. Stereo speakers throughout the house, custom controlled within each room. WiFi, satellite TVs, Blue-Ray players, and on-demand Netflix.

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, with double tankless water heater so you never run out of hot water.

It's an easy walk from the house to the double slip dock with party deck and diving board (depth of 30 ft at dock!). You are welcome to use our 2 kayaks, canoe, and 14' Phantom Sailboat. You can bring your own boat or PWC to keep at the dock, or you can rent our 24' pontoon boat.

Wonderful fall vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful home and we had a wonderful visit. 9 adults stayed very comfortably and the home was clean and very well maintained. The owner was always very prompt to answer all questions. The property is lovely with many available activities. We used the dock, canoe and kayaks and had a great time. Fantastic vacation!

worth the money

  • 5 of 5
This house is just as beautiful as the pictures. Truly high end kitchen with all the tools you'd need to host Thanksgiving or Christmas - not to mention everyday meals. Despite our October occupancy adults and kids swam in the lake, jumped of the diving board and enjoyed all the boats. The pontoon boat was in great condition and a wonderful way to explore the lake. I was on crutches during the stay and used the main level master, which was beautiful. I was able to make it down the slate stone filled steps to the dock and ride on the pontoon boat despite my injury. We hiked at Lake James state park _5 min drive to trailhead - and ate dinner in Marion at Low Country restaurant 1 night but otherwise no one felt any need to leave the property. Would love to come back again.

Great trip for adults and toddlers!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter (2 years old) and another couple with (son, 3 and daughter 2) rented this house for a week. We all had such an amazing time! I am writing my review for others who are considering renting with small children so you know what the experience was like.

The house is beautiful! It really has almost anything you need so you don't need to pack much.

In terms of sleeping details...The owner has a crib in the basement. We didn't use it but it would be a nice option if you are flying. Two of our 3 kids were in pack and plays so we barely needed to use the space that is provided. In fact we had our daughter's pack and play in the main floor master bedroom closet. It is huge, quiet and cool in there so she slept very well. We all used video baby monitors and they worked in the kitchen and on the second floor baloney with no problem. Two of the kids were downstairs in bedrooms and one was on the main level. For entertainment.... There is a large closet full of games on the third level. Our kids mostly played with the train table and large bin of legos. The second story baloney is completely closed off so the kids could run and play and we didn't have to worry about them slipping on rocks or going into the water. There is a small beach which is hard to see from the photos. The beach is perfect for the kids to stand in shallow water or throw rocks (that was a big hit with the kids!) The owner also has life vests in several sizes so the kids were able to take turns going on canoe rides. We didn't end up renting the pontoon boat since our kids were so small. There is a large theater room on the lower level which was perfect to keep the older, nonnapping kids entertained when we needed an hour or two of quiet time. There is a large selection of kid friendly DVDs or you can use Netflix on the TV. In terms of eating...The owner has a highchair downstairs but we were able to sit the little ones on boosters we brought in the kitchen chairs or patio chairs. There is a very good quality grill which made it easy to have two separate dinner times for kids and adults. There is also a large walk in pantry and plenty of refrigerator space to store food. The kitchen is beautiful and large so we spent most of our time there. There is even a dual temp wine fridge!

The owner is very responsive and friendly. I spoke with her many times via email and on the phone. Rent this house, you will love it!

Ideal for multi-family vacation

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful, spacious, and well-appointed home is ideal for a multi-family vacation. The bedrooms are located in such a way as to provide maximum privacy, and the great-room with a large dining room table is a great place for the whole group to gather for meals and games. Several comfortable sitting areas provide places to relax and read. Swimming and boating are just few steps away, and golf is nearby.
