|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Looking for a special place to get away together? Or perhaps reunite with family or good friends? Do you like thoughts and images of an 'old world' French chateau perched lakeside on a private, absolutely beautiful rocky point surrounded by trees and water with a captivating view of the mountains? Do four fireplaces throughout the house and an intimate cascading water feature outside, set in a grotto, tucked along an arched veranda speak to sensual romance? If so, then La Chatelaine on Lake Sequoyah just moments outside the Aspen-like downtown of Highlands, NC is awaiting your arrival. Come and enjoy intimate dinners, fireplace encounters... wine, cheese, gourmet chocolate, and warm baguettes out on the deck... French roast coffee, fresh berries, and buttery croissants for breakfast; mountain lake strolls and unforgettable views. This is a place for souls to share. Relax, unwind, and when it is time, venture out into the charming town of Highlands. You will be delighted!
Extraordinary, beautiful setting on a private peninsula. So private you can leave the shades open and feel you are sleeping in nature, yet on top end beds and linens. We stayed here with two other couples, all comfortable in their own private quarters with lake views and balconies (don't let the twin beds deter you, they can be pushed together and the bathroom has an entrance to the room). The pictures don't begin to show how beautiful this property is, including professional lighting throughout. Enjoy one of the top restaurants of Highlands a half mile away, the resort town of Highlands and also dine in with your own grill, fully furnished kitchen, crystal and china. Enchanting features at every turn: a loft, a conservatory, a spiral stair, fireplaces, antiques and statues, hidden paths through the property and at water front, porches everywhere and a covered outdoor living area with an intricate stone grotto. The delightful property manager will give you detailed information of the property and the area. A memorable, elegant, enchanting, private retreat.
La Chatelaine is a remarkable property. This is a true luxury experience and the pictures and descriptions are accurate. The owners have opened their home to you and nothing has been overlooked. Everything is in working order and after you get over the perfect lake view you will thoroughly enjoy the house itself. The master is a sanctuary with a great bed and a spa quality bathroom. And, lets not forget the antique soaking tub on the private deck. The kitchen is a cooks dream, well equipped with the 8 burner stove and double ovens. All equipment is in good working order especially the state of the art HVAC system. The house is filled with antiques and interesting art. The owners, Jani and Jim and the manager Patti are considerate and responsive. La Chatelaine is important to them. In return for this luxury experience, the house needs to be treated gently. It is not a "party house" and nothing like the typical tired rental. You will have the ultimate in comfort and privacy overlooking the lake and are just minutes from downtown Highlands.
We cannot imagine a better place to stay. Highlands is magical and La Chatelaine is simply beyond compare. Jani and Pat are great to work with.
The pictures only begin to do this special place justice. You will relax here.
We were a little anxious about our stay in Highlands this time. We had never stayed in a home before. In the past 10 years we had stayed at different Inns from Highlands all the way to Lake Toxaway. To say the house was perfect is an understatement. The longer we were there the longer we wanted to stay. I think we fell even in more love with the Highlands, mainly because of your home. The house is absolutely gorgeous from the location, furnishings and comforts. Being only 1 1/2 miles to one of a kind shopping and award winning dining is only icing on the cake! We will definitely be back, hopefully sooner than later. Thank you for making out 21st wedding anniversay so very special!
