About the property

2-story, 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, wood-burning fireplace, sleeps 6+

Mom's Place is a cozy mountain cottage that sits high on a mountain top, nestled at the end of a 2-mile dirt road in the middle of the woods with no neighbors in sight, yet it's just minutes from Cashiers, Highlands, and Sapphire, with easy access to the lake shore. The large deck overlooks one of the best views Lake Glenville has to offer. Relax in comfortable deck chairs or under the deck umbrella with a drink, steaks on the grill, and enjoy the most spectacular sunset you've ever seen. Mom's Place is an eclectic rustic/contemporary retreat, recently refurbished, with a low rental rate and lots of room for a romantic getaway or a family vacation. With new carpet, new wood floors and freshly painted, Mom's Place is decorated with cozy leather furniture, old tools, rustic design features and modern touches. All beds are specially made with fluffy pillows, top of the line linens and plush down comforters for the best nights sleep amidst the sounds of the crickets and cool mountain temperatures. The brand new kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need. The brand new main bathroom is bright, roomy and airy with gorgeous tile bathtub/shower combination, upgraded fixtures and soft, fluffy towels and bath robes. You'll love Mom's Place....hidden in the woods, perched above the lake, with no other houses nearby, creating a private oasis of solitude and an atmosphere for total relaxation!!

Recent updates were just made to Mom's Place and include a gorgeous new main bathroom and kitchen, new decor and furniture too!! And a brand new large deck overlooking the lake with unobstructed wide views!!

The house is fully stocked with all linens, pots/pans, plates/glasses, cups, silverware....everything!! A large huge flat screen smart TV is a recent addition with a knockout Direct TV channel package, Netflix, and Amazon access. Full WiFi throughout the house for your wireless needs, for all computers and devices. All bedrooms have new smart TVs. A land line phone is there for emergencies and in case power goes off. The deck has recently been re-railed with gorgeous cable features so that views are even more unobstructed and spectacular.

If you would like to stay at a lake front home or you have overflow and need 2 houses, i just opened Moore Mountain'inn down the mountain from Mom's Place. See listing #4149368.

Mom's Place-Cozy Cabin On Lake Glenville with Easy Lake Access
average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews


  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! This is really just perfection. A stunning view, privacy and a true home away from home. Everything you can possibly need has been generously supplied-and clearly the owners know how to cook because this kitchen has everything needed to prepare a grand meal! Super clean and comfy -can't emphasize enough how great Moms Place is! Been home two days now and our two dogs are still exhausted from all the mountain running. as for the humans, we're missing the fresh cool mountain air and sitting on the deck checking out the lake and incredible mountains. This has been by far our favorite rental ( our 4th thus far for 2017) and thank Lisa for sharing!

Our little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to this little cabin for so long, it feels as if it were truly our own! Lisa's mom actually rented to my parents even before I had a family of my own to bring. It has become a tradition and we can't seem to stay away! And this year we got a major surprise when we arrived for our week in the woods. Lisa had upgraded the entire house!!! Everything from the kitchen cabinets to flat screens in all of the rooms. We are talking a seriously contemporary face lift. The big back deck has this neat new cable fencing that allows an even better view of the lake (my dog and 4 year old were completely secured behind it). It seemed like every day after a swim or a kayak, we would end up right back there, grilling and watching the sun go down. All in all, the beauty of our long-standing connection to Mom's place was made all the more special and fresh this time around. If you want seclusion, nature, views, comfort, rest, convenient access to the lake and town, an overall lovely place to spend time with your favorite people, this is it! Thanks again Lisa for another beautiful summer getaway!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our cozy, tranquil stay at Mom's Place!! Lisa was so wonderful to work with; she went out of her way to answer all our questions and make sure our stay exceeded expectations--and it did. We have stayed in the Cashiers area numerous times and Mom's Place hands down has the single best view of Lake Glenville than any other location we've stayed. Its elevation and location provide an expansive, beautiful view to the north and east of the lake. Then there was the bald eagle perched on a small island across from us that added extra magic. There was ample space for us and our two teenagers, who each had their own rooms and were equally charmed by the lake, hikes to waterfalls, trips to Highlands, a jaunt to Asheville, and just relaxing on the deck. The cottage is adorable, has been recently updated, and is stocked with everything imaginable. We are already planning our next trip!!

Everything you'd want from a Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I couldn't get enough of this incredible house! I barely even left the property I was so in love. While maintaining the rustic feel of the mountains, this property looks very newly-renovated and up-to-date. The kitchen and bathroom had to be brand new! It has the charm of a gorgeous lake-view log cabin, but the accommodations of a brand new home, equipped with everything you could need: DirecTV, Netflix, a flatscreen TV, hi-speed internet. We barely even used all that stuff though because the view of the mountains and the lake from the huge deck were enough to keep us occupied for hours – you can also see the same view from the inside through the huge glass doors (it also only takes five minutes to get to the lake, which we went to almost everyday). We couldn't get enough of this house. You really feel like you are alone in the woods, but also, the house is super close to town - the charming town of Cashiers and the supermarket are only minutes away. Our favorite part of the house is the deck which has comfy furniture and a Weber grill (we cooked and watched the sunset most of the nights we were there and it was a priceless moment every time)! The house is super comfortable - amazing beds and EXTREMELY clean! Lisa made this an incredibly easy process - she is super organized and available, and sooo nice to work with. We didn't even need to bother her because the house was so perfect! If it's available, I will absolutely be going back next year with my family!!! Again, WOW!

A little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, husband, 6-year old son, and Yellow Lab pup, stayed at Mom's place last summer. We had the most intimate and rejuvenating time being tucked away at the Cabin...yet, we felt close enough to neighbors if needed. After getting settled in, we were greeted by the Neighborhood Welcome Wagon which consisted of two very sweet dogs, cutely named Alli and Gator. My son was absolutely smitten, as was our dog. The Cabin offered all the conveniences of home along with providing the much needed quiet time to reflect and recharge that we so needed. The views from inside of Lake Glenville and the Woods were just as nice as the views from the expansive deck. Just outside there were foot trails to follow or you could just meander through the quiet canopy covered roads to explore. The owner, Lisa, was great at responding to us and being available. She proved to be very personable and genuine in character. Thank You, Lisa, for a very memorable time sharing your family's place with us.
