*** Discounts available for last minute, small groups, mid-week, off-season, and/or multi-day bookings ***

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.

Lakefront Luxury!

Beautiful home with tons of amenities! Absolutely enjoyed our stay! Lots of places to be together or find a little solitude. Everyone agreed this place is a "do-over"!

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

I can't really describe how amazing this home and experience was.

The owner was very easy to communicate with and very helpful in the weeks leading up to the stay. The home is breathtaking in every way. Everything about the house is expertly crafted, with attention paid to every detail. In every room we found something to marvel at and obsess over.

My friends and I remarked to one another several times that this was the perfect lake house. The kitchen is more than accommodating (and there's two of them!), there were more than enough shared bathrooms, and I could have lounged all day in the comfortable furniture throughout the house. The bedrooms themselves were very comfortable, and the individual bathrooms were all exquisite.

I can't overstate just how beautiful everything is in and around this home. The view is amazing, the lake was incredible, the double dock was very cool. The fire pit is a great feature, and there is an adequate supply of wood. We didn't make use of the boat, but it would be perfect for a group outing for a day on the lake. You could just spend all day on the double dock, anyway.

It's the kind of place where a group of friends could have a great weekend getaway, or a family could stay for weeks at a time. Another great thing about this listing - everything was exactly as advertised. The game room was a game room, the theater was a very real theater room, all of the features listed weren't exaggerations to sell a trip.

I would give this home and the trip a 5/5, and I hope to return one day with another group of friends or family. If you're considering this home for a vacation, I would pull the trigger. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful, Clean, Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My family stays here every year so that's a pretty clear indication of how much we ALL love this place! I took my sister and some girl friends this past weekend and it was perfect. Incredibly clean, relaxing, we all really appreciated the instructions on how to operate everything- loved the new bar stools and dishwasher. I cannot say enough positive things about this house. It is GREAT for a romantic getaway, a group of friends or families- good for a girls getaway or a guy's getaway! Plenty to do with the game room, theater, kayaks and an awesome kitchen to cook in, not to mention it's not terribly far from Asheville. Everything about this house feels cozy without skipping on the luxurious amenities. Owner is super prompt with any questions or requests, which is incredibly helpful planning a trip with multiple people involved. if you're looking for the cabin-appeal-but-luxury-feel, look no further this is THE place!!! Love it and can't wait to go back!

Beautifully decorated and we'll kept property. Extremely spacious for our group of 8.

  • 5 of 5

This house is simply beautiful! Other than food everything you will ever need is provided. Lake view is picture perfect. We could not have asked for better accommodations. And the owner of this property was extremely attentive in making sure we had a good experience. We are definitely looking forward to returning in the summer.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house and this place was really amazing. To begin, the house is very classily furnished in everyway. Then to walk out on the back porch and see the view is so relaxing and beautiful. But to get out on the lake in the pontoon boat really takes the cake! Taking the boat out and stopping to play on one of the islands is only topped by coming back and spending the sunset around a firepit right on the water and right at the back door. How amazing! Take a hike up Short Off mountain and see the lake from there. I'd recommend this vacation home to everyone!
