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!

Way beyond our expectations! Amazing lakefront with dock access and boating equipment. Owners allow use of their home from the finest items to a spacious garage. Every room has unique decor and views. Kitchen is fun to create and share with friends/family or a secret getaway for lovebirds. We would not recommend children as the home is too precious.
Beautiful home. Great location.
Our family enjoyed our time in the area very much. This house provides a great location to gather at the end of a busy day and enjoy a meal and fire with great views. Conversely, it serves as a great place to spend a day enjoying the lake, a book or a game of billiards. Highly recommend.
A French Country Retreat
We drove up the mountain into this beautiful repose in the Highlands of North Carolina. Two stoic lions stood guard as we entered this beautiful French Country Chateau. Like entering a different country and time zone, the house and all furnishings spoke French. The river appeared to run under the house and all decks, upper and lower opened and viewed the peaceful river and forested mountains. The chateau seemed remote, and yet the grocery store and restaurants could be reached in minutes. The stay was peaceful and very memorable. Customer service was excellent. The property was perfectly maintained and pristine. I would highly recommend this property unless I intended to rent it again at that time myself.
Awesome and elegant mountain escape
We have used VRBO and HomeAway often and this home is the best yet. You can book with confidence and be assured that the owner has represented the property accurately and everything is handled professionally. We found the lake setting with use of the kayak and canoe along with a dock and private grounds enhanced the vacation experience for our family (ages 8 to 83). The location is very close to Highlands but we felt as though we had traveled to the French Countryside.
This is beautiful, well-appointed home!
The home has an excellent view of a lake and mountains.
It is close to a fun, quaint downtown area while also close
to hiking areas with waterfalls and great views. We also
enjoyed the pool table. I highly recommend this home!!
Amazing stay in Highlands
This location was amazing. Worth every penny. Plenty of room with lots to do. The kitchen, pool table, and seating areas around the property of the house made it hard to leave during the day. Perfect lake location and very clean. We will be staying here again!
