Why Bruce Douglas chose Nebo
We love everything about the area, a beautiful mountain lake, tons of outdoor activities, shopping and close to Asheville, Morganton and Black Mountain.

Beautiful Vacation Home!
Beautiful, clean, fully equipped home with a gorgeous view!! We brought our boat and had a blast on the lake and hanging out by the dock! Owner was great to work with too! Highly recommend for family fun!
The house had everything that we needed, and the view of the lake and mountains are amazing from the deck. We had so much fun swimming in the lake and hiking all of the area trails.
Thanks got you kind words, we really enjoyed having you all as are guests.
Great Potential, Could Have Been Better
The house is nice, beautiful views, and has potential, but there are some unfortunate shortcomings. First, the owner advertises having 2 kayaks for use, but does not mention that you are expected to carry them down 170 steps to the dock and back up. The first 10 steps are huge, uneven stone steps where I actually sprained my ankle and ended up in the hospital. I feel guest’s safety is compromised by expecting them to haul kayaks down all these steps and back up. When I mentioned this to the owner, he was very callous, despite several other guests mentioning the long way down. Though I knew about it being a long way down from reviews, I didn’t know about having to haul the kayaks down. While I was laid up for the week, my husband could have been taking the kids out in the kayaks, but there was no way to access them. Kayak racks near the dock would make a huge difference. Also, the power went out for 18 hours during our stay, during which we had no water, AC, toilets, and we lost our cold food. Flashlights in the house and maybe water jugs in the garage to flush toilets would be helpful as I’m sure mountain storms cause outages occasionally. We have rented vrbo’s all over the country and owners that are extra caring and accommodating can make or break the stay.
Beautiful Lake Property
The house is amazing and offers beautiful views of surrounding lake and mountains. Owner was prompt in responding to our questions and was proactive in reaching out to us after check in. The house was well stocked and had everything we needed to enjoy a great week on the lake! Lake James is definitely the most beautiful (cleanest) lake we have boated in North Carolina with fun activities off the lake as well (zip lining, hiking, horseback riding). Great place for a family vacation!
