Overview

Tuckasegee Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 2.5, Sleeps 6

In late 2012, our family purchased this lovely mountain lodge, which was built in 2009, to escape to the North Carolina mountains on weekends. We renovated it recently, and when we are not using it ourselves, we make it available to VRBO users. Because we are relatively new to the Bear Lake rental market, for now, we are planning to keep our rates very low -- in fact, the lowest (we believe) in Bear Lake Reserve. Also, our rates include the daily resort fees charged by the Clubhouse of Bear Lake Reserve. We will pay those fees on your behalf.

To facilitate your making an informed decision, we would like to point out the following:

1. As you can see from the many VRBO listings for Bear Lake Reserve, only a few lodges/condos are available for rent. The biggest advantage of staying in a lodge/condo is that the Bear Lake Reserve Clubhouse, where many resort amenities and activities are available (e.g. heated adult pool, heated children's pool with slides, restaurant, lounge, children's playroom & theater, occasional live music, beach, gym, kayak/pontoon/water skii etc.), is only 2 minutes away if you're driving (see picture #13 below). This is particularly important if you have children. In fact, this is why we bought a lodge/condo rather than a house. Many properties in Bear Lake Reserve are far from the Clubhouse. It's no fun to drive for 20 minutes (especially at night) just to have dinner at the Clubhouse! If you like walking, you can also walk to the Clubhouse from our lodge in about 10 minutes via a well-maintained trail.

2. The golf course and tennis courts -- both of which are located at the top of the mountain with a breathtaking panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains -- are also nearby. You can get there in 5-10 minutes by car (depending on how fast you drive).

3. This property is approx. 1800 sq. ft. (not including the deck/balcony). The first floor master bedroom has a king bed with a private bath. The second bedroom on the second floor also has a king bed. Some owners have converted the loft on the second floor to a third bedroom. We, however, have left it as is, so that the entire second floor would feel more open and inviting. There is a full-size futon/sofa bed in the loft.

4. The first floor living room has an unusually high ceiling (see picture #4 below) . The living room has a sleep sofa that can accommodate 2 adults. The spacious, modern kitchen has plenty of cookware and dishware for you to prepare family meals.

5. The building itself has 4 units. Our unit is on the top floor (but our front door is at ground level, so there is no need for an elevator), which affords us a great mountain view. (See picture #12 below. The unit on the right with curtains is ours).

6. The property has three flat panel 3D TV's and two 3D blu-ray players. We subscribe to DISH satellite service for cable. TV reception, especially high definition, is excellent. Wireless high speed internet is reliable. The property has an extensive collection of blue ray DVDs, as well as xbox and wii consoles & games.

7. The property is clutter-free and causal-elegant. We have tried to keep the furniture and decor simple, yet tasteful.

8. If you would like to know more about Bear Lake Reserve and why it's such a special place, please visit its website for more information.

9. Let us know if you are interested in renting our property for longer than 1 month. We will give you additional discounts.

10. Lastly, please be advised that we do not allow more than 6 people at any time. The maximum number of adults is 4 (13+ count as adults). Moreover, a no-smoking and no-pet policy is in effect.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call us. We will get back to you promptly -- typically within 30 minutes. Thank you!

Great home in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as expected and pictured while being surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. The back patio overlooked tree covered hills which was a spectacular view in the fall. Unfortunately, we didn't get to take advantage of any of the onsite amenities as our schedules were full with nearby activities. I can only imagine they are equally enjoyable if not better. Excellent communication from the owner as well. Thanks!

Very nice mountain condo

  • 5 of 5

I took my family of four ( me,wife and 2 children ages 4 & 2) to bear lake for the first time and stayed 4 nights. The condo is very well appointed with modern appliances, nice furniture and any convenience one would want. It's the top unit of a condo with a great view of the surrounding mountains and is a very relaxing and comfortable two story abode. It's 2 bedroom so our kids shared the upstairs room which wasn't an issue. Be advised the condo isn't "child proof" so there weren't gates for the stairs etc. it didn't bother us but every family is different.

One thing to keep in mind is that it is at the end of a long and very windy road to get to the condo. It's a solid hour to the nearest grocery store so bring what you need. The clubhouse down the hill from the condo has an awesome pool with great access to the lake. Boat rentals, food and a kids activity room made this the the place to hang out and it is just down the hill from the condo. It's a bit of a walk down a steep windy road so we drove it mostly.

Overall it's a great place to stay with access to resort style amenities and a beautiful mountain lake. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice get-away

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice cozy condo with a very nice deck and view. Although it is a condo, the property is very quiet. The amenities are very good and the owner was good about doing little things to accommodate us (even let us use his charcoal). The property is a good distance from the highway, but the seclusion is worth it. The clubhouse is also very nice, but water activities are on the expensive side. Overall, however, this condo is a good deal for the money. I would stay here again.

Peaceful and fun

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice and the resort has much to offer people of varying ages. There is not much nearby in terms of groceries and what-not, but if you bring your own food or eat at the really excellent resort restaurant, you will be very happy here. The condo is well equipped and offers great and easy access to the resort amenities. Our whole family (including three young kids) loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I agree with you and other reviewers that the resort restaurant is very good (and very affordable) and that guests need to buy groceries in nearby towns before driving to Bear Lake Reserve if they anticipate cooking a lot. We hope to see you again!

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our three kids recently stayed in this villa in Bear Lake Reserve. The location is very convenient near the Lake Club which is where you will find your family spending a lot of time. This was the third time we have stayed at Bear Lake but the first time in this particular villa. It was the best so far and the owners were very easy to deal with. Can't wait until next summer - we will be back !
