About Raul Echarte

We are a retired married couple from the busy city of Miami, Fl and enjoy the peace and tranquility that this house provides for us.

Raul Echarte purchased this house in 2005

Why Raul Echarte chose North Carolina Mountains

One of the main reasons why we chose to buy is because of the national preserve in front of the house. The view that you see will never change; so you have no worries of any other houses destroying your gorgeous outdoors views.

What makes this house unique

Being right on the lake is very nice and convenient. We park the boat on the dock and its ready to go in the morning no dealing with the dock master. just in the boat and out to enjoy the beautiful lake.

Wonderful summer vacation with our family at this beautiful lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very accommodating for our large family. It was clean and well supplied with most of what we needed. We would have enjoyed having kayaks available to us on the property. We enjoyed swimming off the dock. The views from the house were spectacular. The weather was great the week we were there and we spent most of our time right there. We did enjoy a short hike to a nearby waterfall. Our family came from Tenn, MI, Conn., and N.C. We highly recommend this vacation home.

House was perfect for our 2 families that shared it. The layout gives spectacular views of the glorious lake and surrounding mountains. We enjoyed the lake everyday! The kitchen was large and had plenty of dishes. Honestly we were in awe the entire time!

Fabulous home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special home on a very special lake in a very special lakeside community.

With a terrific location on a wide section of the lake, the home has a truly commanding view of the lake and opposite shoreline.

Its southern exposure means a beautiful lakeside sunrise to the home’s left, a beautiful lakeside sunset to the home’s right, and a gentle sunlight all day that makes the home’s beautiful interior wood glow golden.

The community is the charming Town of Lake Santeetlah ( , with winding perimeter and upper roads of a single lane and little traffic, perfect for leisurely walking.

We met numerous residents on our walks around the community and enjoyed many a warm and friendly conversation.

We are two couples who live in lakeside homes ourselves and expect much from a lake.

Lake Santeetlah met our highest expectations.

We believe this home is priced very attractively and represents an exceedingly good value.

We could not recommend this home more highly to anyone looking for elegant lakeside living, either as a couple or couple of couples, or as a family with many adventurous children in tow.

Certainly, our experience was a very good one, and we plan to be back.

Great House on Lake Santeetlah

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed on Lake Santeetlah for several years in a row, each time in a different house. This one has been the best for our large group (12 adults and 2 kids). Well laid out, lots of beds, very nice location on the lake. The dock is great for swimming off of and docking boats and/or jet skis. We will definitely be interested in staying at this house again!

This is my second year staying in this vacation rental. The home is lovely and clean. If there's a problem the caretakers right there take care of it for you. It's so enjoyable to sit by the lake and sip your coffee. The area is quiet. I love it. i would stay there again.
