House, 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath, sleeps 10 Pontoon Boat available!!
This nearly new custom lakefront home is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains just 10 minutes from I-40 and 40 minutes east of downtown Asheville, NC. This 5,000 sf home will surely become one of your favorite places on Earth.
This upscale 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath home with a 2-car garage sleeps 10 people very comfortably. It is set in a secluded and somewhat rural gated community but is within a 10 minute drive of grocery stores, restaurants, the beautiful new YMCA and the McDowell Mission Hospital.
A day at the Lake: Awaken to a cup of fresh ground coffee on the covered mahogany deck and enjoy a picture perfect sunrise view over the glassy-smooth waters of Lake James and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. After breakfast you might dive from the private dock located in a protected cove and into the cool, pure, refreshing water of the 200 ft deep Lake James, which is fed by two rivers and boasts 140 miles of 90 percent undeveloped coastline. Take the two kayaks, which are provided along with life jackets, for a paddle around the Big Island. Be on the watch for turtles or blue herons. Bring your own boat and tie up to the twenty foot long dock. When not swimming, fishing, boating , relaxing in the sun or shade, you will enjoy pool, foosball, ping-pong, or darts in the lower level playroom with 8ft tall sliding glass walls that open onto a large cobblestone patio with plenty of seating for all. The playroom and the patio, like all other rooms have the same breathtaking views of the lake and the mountains.
When you've had enough sun, put your feet up on one of the ottomans or enjoy one of the rocking chairs you will find in my favorite room, the covered mahogany deck which will easily seat all 10 people. It is very private and of course has the same incredible views. Enjoy a cook out on the Weber gas grill..
Once the sun goes down, be sure to sit on the uncovered cobblestone deck, watch an incredible sunset, locate the Big Dipper and watch for falling stars. You'll listen to a symphony of bullfrogs and whip-poor-wills.
Before bed, unwind in the whirlpool tub. You'll want to get to bed early so you can do it all over again tomorrow!

About Cheryl Whitney

Why Cheryl Whitney chose Nebo
Lakefront with mountain views is harder to find than you might think. The covered porch is our favorite place on the planet. The cove makes swimming and docking safer than it is in the open water just outside our cove.
What makes this House unique
This home was not built as a rental. This is OUR home. It's probably overbuilt for renting, but you can reap the benefits!

We enjoyed a lot our new year celebration in this fantastic house
Perfect location for our family Christmas gathering
We chose this home for our family Christmas gathering because of the beautiful location and the size of the home. The owners have thought of everything! Each room was fully furnished and had all of the amenities one could possibly need. We loved having the large kitchen, as we cooked a couple of large meals while we were there. Though it was too cold to enjoy the lake this time of year, it was beautiful to look at. There were games galore, as well as many books and magazines for everyone. When we arrived, the home was spotless and had very comfortable bathroom accommodations. We especially loved the master bathroom with the jetted tub and upgraded shower fixtures. We would most definitely recommend this home to anyone needing the space for their family or friends to enjoy time together.
We enjoyed every minute of our stay. This is a beautiful home with spectacular views of mountains!
We had a very intimate wedding ceremony on the back patio with just our immediate family. The gorgeous mountains in the background was the perfect spot for us to tie the knot. It was absolutely perfect! Lake James has always been a special place for us. We made wonderful memories there and we're looking forward to our next visit. Just beautiful! Could not have been more pleased. 🍁 😊 ❤️
Incredible views of the lake and mountains...
My husband and I spent our anniversary week at this property so we could get to know the Lake James area better; this rental was a great "home base" for this. The house is very well equipped with lots of ways to entertain yourselves rain or shine; we enjoyed playing a little ping pong one day. The view from the dock is absolutely beautiful. This home would be perfect for a large family gathering or for three couples vacationing together.
Thank you for your kind words. I hope you visit again.
One of the best family vacations we've ever had!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home and our wonderful experience. We rented the pontoon boat and it was in perfect condition. So much fun! Richard (owner) met us and showed us everything we needed to do. Life vests, skies, towable all available and in great shape. Plenty of room for eight adults and 5 small grandkids. We will be back!!!!!
Great house, Great Lake, Big fun!
Great place to get away from a busy life.
