About Jo Hart

Jo & Doug have three adult children and two grandchildren.

Doug is a Psychotherapist whose hobbies are guitar playing and kayaking. Jo is a Private Wealth Banker and most enjoys spending time with our grandchildren who live nearby.

We live in Atlanta and take advantage of every opportunity to come up to our beloved Lakewood Lodge.

Jo Hart purchased this house in 2002

Why Jo Hart chose Cullowhee

It was truly 'love at first sight' the first time we drove through this area on a trip. The natural beauty was awe-inspiring, and we vowed then to live in this 'heaven on earth' someday when we retire.

After receiving the Grand Opening annoucement from Trilliium in 1997, we jumped on the chance to come up. We were impressed with the award-winning community design, the extensive Trillium amenities and the integrity of the developer. Our lot was selected due to its privacy afforded by the private island opposite our lot.

Our custom home was designed especially with rental guests and our friends & family in mind. The bedrooms all have their own baths and are separated from each other for privacy. The furnishings were selected with the help of a local designer and construction was completed in 2002.

We've enjoyed our many rental guests over the years. Please see the entire Guest Comments listing on our website and you'll see why.

What makes this house unique

We love the local Cashiers area outdoor activities such as hiking Whiteside Mountain or the many waterfall trails and, of course, paddling on Lake Glenville.

The fabulous Trillium Fitness Center is used almost every day we're up here. The views are much lovelier than our gym at home!

We particularly enjoy sharing our wonderful home with family and friends. Our grown children love the amenities so much, especially the Golf & Fishing, that they jump at every chance to come up. Our little grandson likes the nature trails in the neighborhood. We almost always entertain our out-of-town guests here. The vast array of amenities and things to do is delightful for any guest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect weather. Wonderful weekend. A needed respite in the mountains!

Awesome accommodations and view!!

  • 5 of 5

We received 10” of snow during our stay and it was absolutely beautiful! The view of mountains and lake from the back deck is priceless.

Very relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Lakewood Lodge! It is such a beautiful home - it has a cozy feeling but is also very spacious. We visited in late March/early April, so the weather was just perfect. It was fairly mild during the days and chilly enough at night to get to enjoy the fireplace. Everything you need is at your fingertips, so it was a very comfortable, relaxing stay for us. The view from the deck is just spectacular, and the home is in a very nice, quiet area. I would definitely recommend a stay here. Be sure to enjoy all of the nearby waterfall hikes!

We have had the great gift and miracle to have found Lakewood Lodge many years ago. Every time we are blessed enough to go on vacation we head for this beautiful place...our "heaven on earth". Every time we drive up, our hearts soar and we look at each other and say "we are home". This past trip we brought our relatives from Italy and we made more beautiful memories. There is nothing that these precious owners will not do to make your visit and stay so joy-filled, comfortable and make you feel like family. The home is so beautiful and comfortable in every way. The kitchen is totally stocked with anything that a cook might need. When we go, we do not eat out at all (REALLY!) because we do not want to leave or miss the beautiful view while sitting on the deck at the wonderful table or in the swings. The trails around the property are beautiful and we walk everyday that we are there whether 30 degrees or 75. We never want to leave and when it is time to go, I throw a kiss with tears in my eyes. Truly our second home, that feels like our real home!

My husband and I wanted to get away from the city and was able to get accommodations at Lakewood Lodge and what a treat it was for us! Every room overlooked a beautiful view of the lake as we towered over the trees. We were able to take this view in warmed by the fireplace inside or outside on the deck that went the length of the house. There was a large selection of books and DVD's so I got really relaxed reading and looking at movies in the warmth and coziness of Lakewood Lodge. We also enjoyed a round of golf and ate at some great restaurants near by. Lakewood Lodge is a treasure in the Mountains of North Carolina!

absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We (the four of us) stayed at lakewood Lodge in August for a week.

We could not have been more pleased with our decision.

The beautifully designed interiors were perfect down to the china

in the kitchen. Drapes, furnishings ect were lovely. Unfortunately we

had a hard time tearing ourselves away from the huge deck that wrapped

around the rear of the house; the view was so exquisite. Plan to come back next fall for a longer visit.
