Our family loves the scenery that NC and especially this Lake House provides! We love the topography, mountain views, and fresh water lake. We love the fact that this house and location provide such diverse activities for all seasons.
Owner purchased this House in 2011
Why Owner chose Nebo
The location puts you right in the middle of so many activities, and the lake is relaxing and fun. The double decker dock and clear fresh water beg you to stay and float, kayak and boat.
What makes this House unique
Private, wooded yard, huge porch and dock lets you enjoy seclusion, while the lake is bustling with activity during peak summer. The double decker dock provides family fun- jumping in the lake, lounging, picnicking, and watersports. Dine on the upper level, complete with picnic table. When you want to venture out, you can do it all in a day's trip, and come back to the lake house to relax!

Staying at this house is like living in the most gorgeous tree house ever. Once on the porch, you never want to leave. The lightening bugs were very entertaining, and we found an endangered passion flower. The passion flower is exquisite, and it was a rare treat to see this growing wild on the path to the lake. My congratulations to Donna Lewis for providing such a natural and beautiful habitat for some of our endangered species. This is the most beautiful place ever. Also, immaculately clean.
Anne, thank you so much for the glowing review. I have to agree – it is like living in a tree house on the back porch. So glad you enjoyed the house and your vacation! Please come again. Thanks! Donna Lewis
If you have kids, you will love this place!
Honestly, this was one of the best vacations for my family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The kids stayed on the water the whole time using the kayaks and a pontoon boat that we rented nearby at a very reasonable rate. My son fished for hours and my daughter stayed on the upper deck getting sun. You hear a train going by at night. Other than than that, you will only hear birds. The house itself is very comfortable and has everything you need except your food and drink. Bed linens, Towels, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels, spray 409 to wipe counters, laundry detergent, spices for cooking, very nice grill, etc., - its all there. We will be back.
Thanks Joel, so glad you had a wonderful vacation! That’s what it’s all about! Come back any time!
Fantastic property and owner!
Wonderful house and great dock. Donna is a joy to work with and very responsive. Great experience and would recommend this place to everyone!
A very peaceful cove
We rented this house to share with our family over Labor Day weekend. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, the house was clean and more than accommodating for the 7 of us, 4 adults, 3 minors.
Pros: plenty of room for 6-8 people, located in a peaceful cove which was nice especially on this busy weekend, kayaks available down at the dock which were great for the kiddos, great outdoor space for entertaining on the back deck of the home, allowed additional time on the last day to checkout
Cons: deferred maintenance - the sink didn't drain well which was problematic as we were trying to keep the small kitchen as clean as possible, and it was extremely disappointing to find the lights at the dock didn't work-- my little boy and his cousins love to fish in the evenings and since the GFI was blown, they weren't able to without using their flashlights
Thanks for staying Janey. We apologize for lights not working. GFI on dock was just replaced in July, investigating why it blew. Sink works fine now.
My family of 4 had a great time at the lake house. The house was very clean and cozy. Loved reading and sitting out on the porch! My boys really enjoyed swimming in the lake, especially jumping off the top dock into the lake! It was hard to leave after the week was over.
Great Lake retreat
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was very well equipped and peaceful. Lake access was awesome. We had everything we needed!
So glad you enjoyed your stay!
