Detailed Property Description

This beautiful mountain home is decorated in casual elegance with a comfortable flair. It is surrounded by acres of wilderness and lots of privacy and is tucked away above the main body of the lake. This 3,600 sq ft. home has 4 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, living room, full kitchen, dining room and can sleep up to 9 people. There are two kings, one queen, one twin and a double. We also have a very nice blow up queen size mattress that works well for kids or adults too! Downstairs is an additional separate living area with a wide open entertainment area, flat screen TV, pool table, lots of games for the kids, kitchen, wet bar, frig, 1 bathroom, 1 bedroom with double bed, and it's own private patio and entrance. It is very convenient for large groups because of its open floor plan and 2 full living rooms. Enjoy the beautiful gourmet kitchen which has a long bar with seating for 6 and an island which seats 2, or grill out on the deck or patio. In the evening, sit on the rocking chairs on the covered front porch and enjoy listening to the birds. Located between Saluda, Flat Rock, and Tuxedo, the home's scenic views of the Blueridge Mountains are breathtaking. Lake Summit sits just below the house, where you can enjoy our boathouse and deck.

This mtn. home is great anytime of the year. In the winter, enjoy the snow with several ski slopes within a 2 hour drive. Stay warm by the wood burning fireplace and take time to relax in the roman tub in the master bathroom. We have a great fire pit out back to gather around in the evenings. Fall is magical when the leaves are all in vibrant colors. The area is great for hikes, biking (mountain bikes are available), and long walks. The Lake Road follows the entire shoreline for over 14 miles. In the summer, enjoy the beautiful sunsets on Lake Summit, where you have access to your own private boathouse and a shared sundeck where you can tan or enjoy plenty of fishing and entertaining. Boating is allowed. At the boathouse, you can store your drinks and food and it comes equipped with chairs and loungers for your enjoyment. The boathouse also comes equipped with a kayak and canoe for your pleasure. No matter the season, this area has so much to offer. The home is located just 30 minutes from Asheville, 15 minutes from Hendersonville, 1 hour and 50 minutes from Charlotte, 45 minutes from Greenville, SC and only 4 miles off I-26. The home is also only minutes away from Chimney Rock State Park and Lake Lure (site of the 'Dirty Dancing' movie). Lake Lure was ranked by National Geographic Magazine as one of the top scenic lakes in the world. Also nearby is Pisgah National Forest which has over 500,000 acres if protected forest with hundreds of miles of hiking, biking, horsetrails, waterfalls, and gorgeous mountaintop views. For the golfers there are several excellent golf courses nearby. Within a few miles is the town of Flat Rock, home of the Flat Rock Playhouse (the NC State Theater). The Playhouse puts on Broadway plays to packed out audiences throughout most of the year. The town of Flat Rock is full of great restaurants, bakeries, shops, art gallery, fine wine store, and its own Flat Rock Cinema theatre. You won't want to miss 'Music on Main' and street dancing every Friday night, June thru August and our famous 'Apple Festival' in September. Ask about our free family pass to the 'Fun Depot', a great indoor, outdoor, entertainment center! Fun for the whole family. The Biltmore Estate is close by (the largest family-owned estate in America) as well as the also famous Grove Park Inn-both have beautiful views, great restaurants and lots to see. WE PROVIDE GREAT DISCOUNT TICKETS TO THE BILTMORE HOUSE or 2 free tickets with a 5/nt or more booking, IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. Everything has been thought of to make your stay the very best. We hope to see you soon! You will love it!!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent the weekend and loved the house and boathouse. Our family had a great time, especially the kids who loved the boathouse for swimming and fishing. The home was spacious, clean, with lots of decks and porches. We enjoyed the firepit in the evenings. We will return again next year!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was great. Very clean and spacious. We noticed there were reviews about needing a 4 wheel drive to access the house but we had no trouble at all. Maybe in the winter months, if there is snow, but otherwise it's very accessible. The boathouse was a quick drive down the hill and we parked right in front. The lake is beautiful! Our kids enjoyed canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. We had a wonderful vacation and we were very happy with the accommodations! We will return!

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

My parents rented this house for our extended family to get away for a few days. We were disappointed. Description is not completely accurate. Not completely private, another home right next door. Lake/boathouse are not just below the house and aren't not even within walking distance. Wooded lot but no view. Owners need to do some serious up keep on the property and it was dirty. A shame because house has a lot of potential. Considering the cleaning fee we paid, house should have been clean and we should not be expected to wash a load of towels and strip beds before we leave. For the price we paid, we expected more than average.

Great house but some disappointments

  • 4 of 5

Get house for our family. Comfortable, well stocked and kids loved the basement level. House very open and spacious. Utilized the fire pit area. Lake was beautiful and loved all the water activities available. Visited the sliding rock, whispering falls and the gem mine, all enjoyed those adventures. Areas to consider for improvement for future visitors are: no smoke detectors functioning in house, kayaking equipment needs attention-plug missing in large kayak, grills need cleaned and maintained, promise of Biltmore tickets with rental not delivered-presented with a fiasco at will call ticket center and had to purchase tickets.

Wonderful getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible weekend at lake summit! This house is spacious, clean, and great for children. The lake is gorgeous! We had a blast using kayaks and canoes. Our kids loved hanging out in the downstairs living room. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back!
