About Tracy McGlohon/Property Manager

Jim & Phyl have been married for over 30 years, have three adult children and live in Winfield, IL. They are co-owners of a healthcare company. Jim runs the business and Phyl is also a registered nurse at a local hospital.

Why Tracy McGlohon/Property Manager chose Lake Lure

We made our first trip to Western North Carolina eight years ago and fell in love with the combination of mountains, lakes, outdoor activities, less congestion and southern hospitality.

Coincidentally, our first trip included a visit to Lake Lure. Eight years later, and after lots of hard work our dreams have become a reality.

We found the perfect location: a lakefront home with the perfect view of Bald Mountain Lake and Bald Mountain, and we are able to enjoy all the amenities at Rumbling Bald Resort on Lake Lure less than one mile away!

What makes this house unique

Bald Mountain is a peaceful lake (no motor boats) which makes it the perfect lake for kayaking, paddle boating, fishing, or just plain old relaxing! And if you want lots of activities and amenities, our guests can take advantage of the amenities at Rumbling Bald Resort and all the action on Lake Lure!

Lovely, relaxing, perfect for 2 families with teens!

  • 5 of 5

The Tanquility Chalet was quite tranquil! The home was warm and comfortable. The moms staying there enjoyed coffee on the deck each morning. The view was delightful! The teens enjoyed the kayaks and peddle boat. It was a perfect retreat for the week. Hoping to make it to the Tanquility Chalet every year!

Owner's Response: Happy to hear that your stay at Tranquility Chalet was all that you hoped for and made for a great vacation for your respective families. This home is a favorite of many of our guests. With two level decks facing Bald Mountain Lake to relax on, along with the awesome view of Bald Mountain, it really is the perfect lake/mountain home to spend a week or a long weekend. The owners have done an outstanding job updating this house to make it comfortable, inviting and one that many now return to annually. We hope you will too.

Well Appointed Home!

  • 5 of 5

My grandparents live in Rumbling Bald Resort, but don't have room for guests so we rented this house on Bald Lake for my family of four and my parents. Coming from out of state, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but were quite surprised on how well stocked and well maintained this home was! Beautiful home with updated kitchen (had all supplies we needed even plastic bags and foil!) and updated bathrooms and lower level room. My teen boys appreciated the high end technology in the house. We used the Jon boat and kayaks everyday. Having access to RBR amenities is also a perk of this home, although we had access through our family. Decks were great as well at the dock, spent a lot of time on them! I would highly recommend this house.

Owner's Response: Hi Charlene - it was a pleasure to meet you and happy that Tranquility Chalet was a great experience for you and your family. The on going improvements and additions made by the owners reflect the desire to have families come to connect with each other as well as with the scenic lake and mountain views just outside the windows. Our hope is you'll come for a return stay when next in Lake Lure.

Reviewer Comments:

We spent the week at this "tranquil" home and could not have asked for a better experience! Both the adults and the teens in both families enjoyed the home....immensely! It was the perfect layout for 2 families with enough room for everyone to have his/her own space. Coffee on the deck each morning, enjoying the views, was the best part for the moms. We all enjoyed having access to the use of kayaks/boats and the dock allowed ample space for lounging and enjoying the lake. And the teens were thrilled that WiFi was available!!! We are hoping to stay again each summer!

Reviewer Comments:

Our week vacation (4 adults, 5 children) was fantastic. Pictures do not do the house justice. House if beyond nice and made for a fantastic time. Only things that would have helped to know can't walk or bike to resort. It's a very short drive but I was thinking we could walk. Road is way too narrow and steep.

A Fun Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful location for our small family reunion! The location, although a fun challenge to find, was perfect for our diverse age group, with activities for all ages. The house is nicely designed and furnished for complimenting a great stay. With small children requiring more eat in experience, it was unfortunate the dishwasher was under repair throughout our stay; however, a family cooperative effort and a cooperative, helpful Management Company made it work!

Owner's Response: We are excited that you got to spend your family reunion at Tranquility Chalet. Yes, it is the perfect home and area for all ages. Thank you for your cooperation with the dishwasher. we had to order two parts and Sears made it out the next week to fix. We are glad that the paper plates/utensils/cups helped with cleaning up. We hope that you come back and visit us in the near future. Take Care, Tracy McGlohon, Broker Buffalo Junction Properties
