Overview

About the property

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

Commercial Realtors, Property Managers and General Contractors based in Asheville, NC. Escaped from Tampa Bay in 1993.. Never moving again! Cheri is a GC and built and decorated this home herself!

Cheryl Whitney purchased this house in 2007

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 every minute of our stay. This is a beautiful home with spectacular views of mountains!

  • 5 of 5

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...

  • 5 of 5

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.

One of the best family vacations we've ever had!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!!

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay a year in advance and have enjoyed the anticipation of staying in the Whitney home on Lake George by reading reviews and looking at the photos. Finally the week for our family reunion arrived for the 10 of us (6 adults, 3 children, and an infant). We're all from FL and couldn't wait till we could enjoy cooler weather. We were fortunate to have a perfect weather week with 62-84 degrees each day. The house is even more beautiful and comfortable than the photos promised, and as other vacationers have written several times, everything we could possibly need was provided. We were happy to spend many hours on the water in the 23 ft. boat and think it might be a good idea to have a photo of the boat provided in the description on HomeAway. We would highly recommend this house for anyone looking to vacation on Lake George. Thank you, Cheri.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind Review. However, I must correct the name of the lake to Lake James. I do not want anyone to be confused about that. Thank you. I hope you can visit another time.

What a fun week!!

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and spacious and Cheri and Richard were easy to work with. The location on the lake was great--a nice cove with lots of protected, smooth water close by and also close to the Bear Creek Marina. My only suggestions for improvements would be to trim the trees and shrubbery in the back so that the dock and more of the lake are visible from the house, add some kind of sound system for listening to music on the main floor and/or the basement recreation area, and upgrade the TV on the main floor.
