This beautiful custom home is the perfect retreat for your special gathering with your family and friends. Our spacious luxury home has over 6,500 square feet and every amenity to ensure an awesome and memorable experience for everyone in your group...whether that is quiet time relaxing and enjoying gorgeous views over beautiful Lake James, action packed days enjoying the lake, kayaking, paddle boarding and canoeing, exploring natural ‘adventure islands’ (undeveloped islands), fishing, tubing, water skiing, and boating; or off the lake, hiking trails and mountains, spelunking caverns, or mountain biking; then perhaps joining up again in the evening for s’mores around the fire pit, friendly challenges in the game room, a favorite movie in the home theater, or cozy gatherings around the stone fireplaces.

The home is built with natural materials throughout; gorgeous hickory floors, extensive stone and custom iron work, exposed beams, wood paneled vaulted ceilings, and 10' 4' ceilings on main level. The house uniquely combines luxury amenities with natural materials and rustic accents to enhance your mountain experience right on the lake!

The wonderful large gourmet kitchen is the heart of the home with granite, top end appliances (Wolfe and SubZero), a massive central island with prep sink, breakfast nook with long table, and counter bar with comfy barstools. The dining room has a fabulous 72' round table with bench seats and lazy susan - perfect for great conversation with a large group! Each of the two inviting living room areas has cozy quality seating, a stone gas fireplace, and a wall of full height glass doors for views and access outdoors. A huge game room includes pool table with ping pong top, foosball, 82" TV with PS3 and Wii video game systems with games including Rock Band, game table, and electric piano.

The family game closet is full of games for all tastes and is complete with jigsaw puzzles. The home theater features stadium seating, a new 4K 84” TV, DVD library and Netflix. The kitchenette/wet bar on the lower level is perfect for refreshments and snacks. If you are looking for a nice quiet place you can head off to the sun-room boasting the best views in the house with awesome chaise lounge, or a cozy seat in the loft or study area, or a quiet spot in a hammock or chair on the deck or patio. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spots!

Electronics include stereo with Ipod and Pandora hookup. Stereo speakers throughout the house, custom controlled within each room. WiFi, satellite TVs, Blue-Ray players, and on-demand Netflix.

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms, with double tankless water heater so you never run out of hot water.

Master bedroom: king bed and luxury bathroom with jetted spa shower and whirlpool tub

Bedroom two: king bed and bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub

Bedroom three: two queen beds and access to hall bathroom

Bedroom four: queen bed, shares hall bathroom with bedroom five

Bedroom five: two twin beds

Plus there is an additional full bathroom. Nearly all furnishings and mattresses are top quality and brand new.

The outdoor area includes a large open deck with stunning views and large gas grill. The lower deck has flagstone floors with large deep seating patio set. It's an easy walk from the house to the double slip dock with party deck and diving board (depth of 30 ft at dock!). You are welcome to use our 2 kayaks, 2 paddle boards, and canoe. You can bring your own boat or PWC to keep at the dock, or you can rent our 24' pontoon boat. Gathering around a fire in the fire pit or feeding fish at the dock will create fond memories for everyone.

Perfect Lakefront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth annual visit to Lake James Retreat for our group of 7! We love this property and feel like it is our own vacation home--each person knows where their room is and where everything is stored. Every detail is thought of and looked after and the home is always spotless when we arrive. The bedrooms are lovely and private and the gathering areas are spacious. We never go out to eat but take turns cooking in the dream kitchen, then enjoying the meal, the wine, conversation and the view. In between meals the home and location are beautiful and relaxing. Too many amenities to name--you can never be bored!

60th Birthday Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My wife arranged a 60th birthday celebration for me and 3 other couples at this beautiful lake home. The house and location exceeded all expectations and made for a very special time with old high school friends. We all were "wowed" as soon as we walked in the front door. Every room was beautifully furnished yet comfortable. This was he perfect house for 4 couples as we had plenty of places to gather as a group and also private space if needed. The ping pong table was a hit as well as the theater room. We had a great time watching a couple of college football games on the big screen. As an added bonus, we rented the pontoon boat and had a very relaxing tour of the lake. Overall, it was an exceptional few days with good friends. We all agreed that the house and location turned a good trip into an amazing experience that we will remember for a long time.

We will be back!

It doesn't get much better than this!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property has it all -- well appointed, craftsman built, beautiful lake front setting, easy walk down to the water, loads of amenities; and last but not least, a cook's dream kitchen. Our family rented this property in 2011, and everyone voted to rent again this year. No other place we've rented in the Lake James area measures up to the Lakefront Retreat.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at this beautiful home over the Christmas holiday! The home was exceptionally clean and had every single thing we needed for our family and extended family. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute in our home away from home! We hope to come back in the summer to take advantage of the lake experiences. The owner communicated with us to assure we had the best vacation ever. Thank you!
