Red Canoe Cottage has great porches for dining and reading all with awesome lake and mountain views.
My family gathered for a week trip on Glenville lake this year and had the most incredible stay at the Red Canoe Cabin. The cabin was nestled on a fairly private, gently slope spot right near the water. The cabin was beautifully decorated inside, with lovely porches on two floors. There was enough space for our family of nine to visit Together inside and out, and the bed rooms were fabulous. The cabin was in excellent condition and we were thrilled with the fire pit and two added canoe/ kayaks! We loved the location, just a few miles from the town of Cashiers and the beautiful wider view of the lake. We hope to return next year and stay here again!!
Red Canoe is one of the most peaceful retreats I have ever experienced. Walking in thru the roomy well laid out kitchen past the huge dining room table there are french doors that open to let the soft lake breezes in. The extra large covered porch has totally comfortable chairs on top of an oriental rug. Impossible to resist especially with the incredible lake view, particularly at sunset. A dinning table and chairs completes the porch. Back inside the living room also invites you to sit and be comfortable all day. It is complete with awesome stone fireplace and inviting bookshelves.The upstairs bedrooms and bathroom are functional and roomy. Each room of Red Canoe has its own personality, filled with amazing vintage/antique furnishings tastefully placed.The downstairs bedrooms each open onto another relaxing porch. From there you can get out to the yard and enjoy chairs in the soft grass or continue on to the floating dock .A picnic table and fire pit complete the scene.This house is all in all both homey and lovely as well as good for a crowd with so many places to be. I truly enjoyed every minute
My group of long time women friends (now in 70's) vacation together every year and this was our second visit to Red Canoe. The house is beautifully decorated with a fantastic view. We are already talking about a return visit.
My family discovered Red Canoe cottage several years ago when visiting friends in Cashiers, and we have enjoyed it numerous times since. On one attempt, it was not available and we went to another of the owner's vacation properties - it was also delightful; however, our younger family members have "staked out" their preferred rooms at Red Canoe, and we have been there for most of our Lake Glenville visits.
We have shared our experiences there with friends whose names are now appearing in the guest register at Red Canoe, and they have thanked us for introducing them to these special places.
Both properties we've seen are great floor plans on beautiful sites, are well-kept, nicely furnished, and there is a local business partner if ever needed. I suspect that the owner visits regularly to update decor, and the local partner keeps things in good repair - we have never been less than delighted.
Red Canoe Cottage is on pristine Lake Glenville and just minutes to both Cashiers and Highlands North Carolina. The area is known for its natural beauty. Hiking, waterfalls, lakes golf whitewater rafting are just some of the great outdoor activities.
