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.

We had 10 people stay in the house and it had lots of space to allow all to have their own area of down time. We had two rainy days and was able to stay busy with the games and theater area. A great time was had by all. Great house with a great view.

Raleigh/Atlanta Vacation

  • Stayed: Feb 2014
My wife and I with our 7 year old twins and year old son, met my parents at the house. It's an easy 3 hr drive from Raleigh. We were very happy with the space, furnishings, and location of the house. My kids really enjoyed the theatre and the game room, and we all slept well beause all the rooms are well furnished with comfortable beds and great bathrooms and showers.

Becaus it was cold, we didn't get to take advantage of the lake and/or boats, but we will be back. The boat access and swimming platform are absolutely amazing.

Overall, the house has almost every imaginable detail addressed. If you want a getaway, on the lake, to unwind in absolute comfort, this is your place. Keep in mind, the house is fairly remote in relation to groceries, etc., so be sure to bring the basics with you. Real shopping, is approximatley 20 minutes by car.

Better Than I Imagined!

  • Submitted: Jan 7, 2014

A big group of friends and I always go somewhere to ring in the New Year and this year we decided we wanted to rent a house as a sort of relaxing 'getaway". We are a mixed group of guys and girls and so needed lots of room and lots of varied activities to keep us busy for the 4 days we were to spend together. I found this property online and knew it would be perfect for us. It was easy to arrange and centrally located enough for those of us traveling from out of state and from within. We wanted to find a place, too, that was on the same level of luxury we are used to in our other travels. While the pictures on the website are very accurate I must say they do not do the home justice. It was breathtakingly beautiful when we first arrived and our mouths just dropped open. It accomplishes so many seemingly incongruous qualities that are all desirable for such a vacation; spacious yet cozy, rustic yet luxurious, etc. The owners have thought of every detail. The kitchen alone made me want to live there permanently. As a fan of design, I was impressed with all the custom details to the home's interior and even more impressed with the attention to details in the fixtures like heated bathroom floors, jetted tubs and refrigerated drawers in the kitchen as well as the additional convenience of the bar downstairs. There were so many things to do with a healthy game closet selection as well as an immense library of DVDs in the theater room in addition to the pool table, foosball, ping pong, canoeing....we took advantage of it all. We loved having our meals together at the large table in the kitchen with a great view of the lake and we slept extremely soundly in the luxurious beds in every room. Other details were appreciated like the fireplaces on both the main level and the lower level, individual thermostats on each floor and a music system throughout the house. In short, we couldn't have picked a better place to bring in the New Year. Every single person in our party was more than impressed. We had an amazing time and our surroundings most definitely played a large part in that. Thanks again!

We had a guys weekend at the house. It was way better than we anticipated. Grilled steaks on their awesome weber grill, played foosball, ping pong, pool, video games, and had a fire with smores. Everything in the house is so nice. Will definitely come back in the warmer months to use the boat and explore the lake!

Best Vacation EVER!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
me my parents and my best friend went there in the summer of 2013. we stayed at the house for a week. The very first night we all went out to dinner i guess me and my friends bedroom door was locked from the inside and when we got back the door was locked from inside the house and from the patio door as well so we called the caretaker and she was over in less than 5 mins and opened for us. This was by far the best vacation of the only 13 year life. but i sincerely hope that i can go back someday. If you are looking for a fun family vacation this is your place. It rained almost everyday but we made the best of it. Every morning i tried to catch a fish but all they did was eat the bait but i still had fun doing it. BEST VACATION EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
