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.

FAMILY LAKEATION

  • 5 of 5
My family enjoyed a terrific week at the Lake James home. We had all the comforts of home (and then some) while being away, and were able to comfortably relax both in the home and on the water. Since there were grandchildren involved it was really nice for each family to have their own space for those necessary quiet and nap times. We loved spending time on the lake and the pontoon boat was perfect for getting us to the right, secluded spot. All ages will enjoy there time here. I would highly recommend this site for a good sized group and hope to be able to return there with my family in the future.

THE HOUSE IS JUST AS PICTURED.

  • 5 of 5
I wondered if the photos would hold true to the actual house when we arrived. You can depend on it! In fact, there were things about the house and location that were even nicer than described!

One concern for us were all the stairs. If you have older family members, make sure they are situated on the lower level. It has it's own full kitchen, baths, 3 bedrooms as well as a living room, the incredible media room and the door from the living room opens right on to the lower deck. The deck is furnished with couches and chairs & even a swing to relax in. The 3 older members of our party were housed "down" stairs and it was perfect.

We had our coffee on the porch each morning and enjoyed the quiet and peaceful view of the lake. I use a cane and would have liked to have had a railing going down the steps to the dock. Nothing fancy needed just a "steadying" railing on one side of the steps to come down or go up. This isn't a complaint by any means, I suggest it only as an enhancement to the experience of this wonderful home.

We had ages 8-7yrs old and each one of us were as busy or as relaxed as we wished. With so many areas to go to in the home, you'll never find yourself stepping on each other, yet the upstairs dining areas were perfect to gather us all at meals.

The large kitchen was a dream to gather everyone around with music or the bigscreen TV to watch while preparing a dinner. The large center island was perfect for preparing meals and not bumping into others coming and going. I wouldn't change a thing in the kitchen setup. Everything was high quality - dishes, pots, pans, glasses, and appliances. I would suggest replacing the silverware due to the fact that they weren't of the same quality as all the other items... but, they was certainly enough silverware for whatever purpose was needed in cooking and eating.

I would encourage renting the poontoon boat as an extra since we used it every single day for a week. Sometimes to go to a meal at a lakeside restaurant, to fish in one of the many secluded inlets (catching as many fish as we had bait for...[small] but so exciting for everyone to throw a line in and within minutes, reeling in a feisty fish! We went for late afternoon rides and cooled off with the breeze, even caught in a small rainstorm, we felt safe on the pontoon. I think you would regret not being able to explore the lake as a group on the pontoon.

Thank you for sharing this home with our family.

  • 5 of 5
The house, location and amenities were all absolutely perfect! I brought my wife, 4 children, mother, mother in law and her husband here for the week and we had the family vacation of a life time! The 9 of us will never forget the memories we made last week! Don't pass up the opportunity to stay here!

LAKE JAMES RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This property was one of the nicest that we have stayed in. The place was immaculate, the kitchen stocked with everything you would need for entertaining a large group. The layout of the house is perfect for large groups. The lower level has it's own kitchen so you feel like your in your own home. The third level has a small kitchen so again you have plenty of privacy. Our son loved the media room, ping pong, fuse ball and wii. The views are great and the access to your very own boat was what sold us on the place. Owner was great and the person who oversees the place was incredible. We would definitely come back. We didn't eat out so can't recommend a restaurant. There aren't many in this area but there are plenty of good grocery stores. We caught fish on the lake (later in the day) but the highlight of our trip was the fishing at Grandfathers trout Farm in the Grandfather mountain area. This area is the ski area and has the zip lines as well. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
