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!

Tranquility is the perfect name for this home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Tranquility chalet for a week this past June, with our three young adult children. The lakefront access, two kayaks, and peddle boat were wonderful! Fishing, kayaking, and relaxing all at our fingertips. Breakfast on the deck each morning in the woods overlooking beautiful Bald Mountain Lake was the best way to start the day. Nearby hiking trails plus all the amenities available at the resort kept us completely busy.

The home has been very lovingly updated with beautiful granite, tile work, faucets, appliances, furniture, and hardware. It was cozy and comfortable, and very nicely furnished. Appliances are all high end and work well. Parking was easy, convenient, and flat! There are lots of steps to the home from the car, and from the home to the lake, but that is to be expected in the NC mountains. There are lots of outdoor lights to help get you from the car to the house, and the yard is beautifully landscaped.

All the bathrooms and bedrooms were updated and well done. While there are three full baths, the upstairs bath has a shower that is not very functional due to the slant of the roof, and our 6 foot tall sons ended up using the very nice stacked stone/tile shower in the basement.

The only inconvenience was the trash: the property manager informed us we should not use the cans at the street, that we should carry our trash off to the recycling center at the resort. Since we were a family of 5 and cooked every day that meant a trip every day to dispose of trash.

Otherwise, we absolutely loved this delightful home and had an excellent experience. We would definitely recommend it and will hopefully return to this very house in the future. I also highly recommend the amenities at Rumbling Bald resort.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Tranquility is a very special place, that is why everyone loves it!! The reason we have the renters take off the trash is because of our bear situation. They love hanging out when the renters are in town. So for the safety of all, we have people take the trash off to dump site. I know it can be a inconvenience but it is for safety. Please come back and see us again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Tranquility chalet very much. Every year we escape to Lake Lure to unwind, unplug, and detox from our crazy busy lives. This year did not disappoint and the Chalet is like home, cozy and well-appointed. Every room and area offers a piece of tranquility and comfort. We will see you again next year at our home away from home!

Reviewer Comments:

My parents live next door to this property. A year earlier I had planned to host a group of clergy colleagues at my parents house for our annual get-together. When my father wasn't able to travel, my mother contacted her neighbors and learned that the house would be available. Clearly the owners are good neighbors, and are kind and flexible people. The house was perfect for my guests, everyone was able to sleep where they were comfortable. We enjoyed cooking and eating together; we enjoyed the view from the deck (best on the lake!) and the use of the kayaks and paddleboat. We appreciated the location in the mountains, but also its proximity to Black Mountain and Asheville, where we took day trips. We also made use of the Rumbling Bald Resort for recreation. We were deeply grateful for the week at Tranquility Chalet.

Reviewer Comments:

It was just wonderful. The weather was glorious and we just enjoyed a low key family weekend celebrating my youngest daughter's 22nd birthday. The house was so warm and comfortable - a lot of stairs but it helped me get my steps in!!! We especially enjoyed watching the geese - momma goose was guarding her eggs and daddy goose became quite attached to my husband - in fact we named him Charlie! We had a great time and so fun having the boot, kayaks and paddle boat.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the location, condition and amenities were excellent. It was disappointing however to pay almost two hundred dollars for cleaning only to be asked to drive our trash to dumpsters and wash towels upon departure.

Owner's Response: We are so excited that you enjoyed your stay at Tranquility Chalet, it is a very special place. The garbage is picked up on Monday's by the resort. We have two buried cans for your use with a lock closure. If for any reason these cans are full we ask for the tenants to take the trash to the resort trash site, 1 mile away. We have a bear problem and this keeps people safe. We do have people clean the towels ( left drying in dryer) since they take the longest when turn over a house. We call it "paying it forward", that way tenants can get into their unit early. Please come and see us again! Tracy McGlohon, Broker
