Overview

Lake James House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-13)

Enjoy both lakefront living and a golf course from your front and back doors! One of the clearest mountain lakes along the Catawba, the unspoiled beauty of this lake will amaze you! This custom built traditional home with a slightly modern feel is spacious and open. Step out the back door and relax on the deck overlooking the private dock in the peaceful cove behind the home, or just out the front door to the greens of the Marion Lake Club Golf Course, which is open to the public and now has the grill and pub open. With the Blue Ridge Mountains as your backyard, there is plenty to do off the lake.

Choose the private master suite on the main level or the master located on the upper level (both with King Beds and Direct TV flat screens) with the other 2 bedrooms(Queen Beds) and bonus kids room. Either way, you will love both spa-like baths. Features of the bonus room over the three car garage include: high definition projector with surround sound to enjoy your DVDs(not included). There is also additional sleeping in the bonus room with one full and one queen size bed, located next to a convenient hall bath. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped to handle large families and great home cooked meals. The finished basement is open but not furnished at this time, it does offer more elbow room for children and teens with another bedroom and full bath, which is handy when you come up from the lake! There is plenty of vehicle parking, so bring your friends and family! Pontoon rental may be available onsite, so inquire about rate. Updated walkway to the private dock below in a quiet peaceful cove with plenty of deep water.

This home is located about 50 miles east of Asheville, NC and about 80 miles west of Charlotte. There are many mountain attractions within an hour drive, including: gem mining, hiking, winter skiing and tubing, outlet shops, Tweetsie Railroad, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Grandfather Mountain, Biltmore House and Shops with winery. Explore Boone and Blowing Rock where you can discover specialty shops for art, furniture, cultural crafts, antiques, strong coffee and a good book, or mouth watering meals. Local shopping is approximately 15 minutes away.

Gorgeous House

  • 5 of 5

This house is gorgeous and has a ton of room inside and out! The layout is great and worked well for my group. The showers in the 2 master bedrooms are very cool! It is very convenient to area boat ramps which was great for us since we brought our own water toys. There is also a gas station and dollar general near by which was nice since we had to run out and get a few things. As someone else mentioned, the walk from the house to the dock is a little steep. However, with this being a lake in the mountains, we knew that already and is pretty common with most houses on this lake. It wouldn't deter me from renting this house again. I would actually prefer this walk compared to the hundreds of stairs that you see at other properties. My only suggestion would be to add a second refrigerator. We brought all of our food and drink and the refrigerator was packed!

Karen was a pleasure to work with! She responded to all questions quickly and returned the deposit within a few days of checking out. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Our home is quite spacious and allows larger groups to spread out into 3 areas of the home. While the kitchen itself is large, it was designed for a single family residence, but perhaps another fridge is a possibility elsewhere in the home. This home is convenient to 2 public boat ramps within 2 miles and there is ample parking with the 3 car garage. We hope to see you again next year!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I have to say this house is absolutely amazing. I have rented quite a few houses on various lakes and I have to say overall this was my favorite. The space, cleanliness and the lake exceeded my expectations. Thank you for allowing my family and I stay at this beautiful home.

Great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this beautiful house! There was so much room to spread out. The kitchen is gorgeous with top of the line appliances and granite countertops. We took the pontoon boat out on the lake and really enjoyed it. Lots of privacy where this house is located. I would definitely recommend this house for a large family, or even 2 families as it has 2 beautiful Master Suites!!

steep walk to lake

  • 3 of 5

spacious comfortable home...the walk down to the lake is treacherous...steep gravel drive. This was a forty year old group of people with smaller children...glad we didn't have grandparents with us.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your review, we have added some new features to the home and have already started immediate plans to make the path from the deck to the dock more easy to travel, as well as installing a new ladder and added gripping for the dock.

Extraordinary Famiy Vacation Place

This is a beautiful home on the perfect spot on Lake James. The home is spectacular!!! We had our annual family vacation there this year, and there was room for everyone. The kitchen is amazing and perfect for cooking for a herd.. LOL>> Our family made many memories here and can't wait for next year. We were truly blessed to have found it.
