About Billy Gordon
I do not just have this VRBO property, I take advantage of other VRBO properties at every opportunity in my travels. If you can make your own bed, enjoy the culinary arts, do not want o drink and drive while being able to enjoy your vacation,.......it sure beats the heck out of hotels and restaurants.. Ok..... If you do go out and enjoy some of the many restaurants in the area. Don't drink and drive!....Well. Too much. ha I like to help my guests enjoy their stay, and typically go out of my way to do so. I think because of this I have aquired many new friends who started out as guests, and who end up coming back to visit on a yearly basis. Of course , only if they can handle my attempt at humor...... I admit I am very lucky to own this property, and it is a lot of fun to share.
Billy Gordon purchased this Cottage in 1920
Why Billy Gordon chose Saluda
This is truly not your typical rental. I go at great lengths to make this property as comfortable and welcoming as it could be. From the art on the walls and the complete chefs kitchen to the fun floats and kayaks , hot dog steamer and ice cream maker at the boat house. Nice large white towels, Pima or Egyptian white linens, new mattress and box springs through the whole house for every bed to the Charmin double ply soft toilet tissue. I do not scrimp on anything and it makes a difference when compared to the others..... After all, I enjoy staying here as well....... The views are incredible and vast out across the lake and mountains , yet you are a short ride to restaurants and stores for your convenience. I guess the best sell for this property comes from you, my guests, and the kind words expressed in the reviews given that are attached to this site in the review section. I invite you to read them.

Fantastic Lake Vacation
We had a wonderful experience - the house was charming and eclectic, with all the amenities we needed. The location was perfect with the boathouse right across the road on the lake and the house just a short walk up the hill. The views are beautiful! We brought our dog and he was right at home and enjoyed every minute of our stay as much as we did! The yard was fenced in and all the bedrooms were clean and comfortable. We will be back!!
Tucked in the mountains Camp Billy is a the perfect escape from the world. Nothing is better than sitting on the porch watching the sunset over the lake. The house is a very short walk to the lake and boathouse, where we spend a large part of our day. The house is also extremely close to the grocery store and all the convienences of town. Additionally, the house is equipped with TVs, WiFi, etc. A truly wonderful get away!
Great View, Great Owner
My family stayed at Camp Billy over the 4th of July week and we had a blast! We have been using VRBO to rent our vacation homes for many years and my daughter said it was the best house we have ever had. The construction and decor of the house give it that "lake house" feel that immediately puts you in relaxed vacation mode. We ate almost every meal on the front porch taking full advantage of what one local told me was "the best long view on the lake." Billy was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to all my queries. I would most definately recommend Camp Billy if you are looking for a relaxing mountain lake vacation.

Lake House Getaway
We just finished a wonderful family reunion at this terrific lake house. It’s a short drive from Hendersonville lending it to being secluded on a gorgeous lake, yet close enough to ample shopping, charming restaurants and even summer Sat. night ‘Pickin on the Square’ by local musicians.
Billy was terrific to work with and has created a vacation rental that feels like home away from home. Our family of 4 adult children and 2 grands had such a fun time swimming from the boathouse and dock and cruising around the lake on the pontoon boat and kayaks. We ate all meals, had quiet coffee in the morning, and hung out together in the evenings on the giant front porch with a stunning view of the lake, complete with hummingbirds and candlelight. The well-equipped chef’s kitchen was the perfect place for us to cook together. Despite Billy’s efforts to dissuade the squirrels from robbing the bird feeders outside the large kitchen window, they succeeded; all the while totally entertaining us.
The house is decorated just as I would want it if I owned a getaway lake house and had spent decades collecting and furnishing it. It is quite spacious, with a set-up that allows both privacy and perfect communal areas. Must also note that the beds are very comfy and I really appreciated all the white cotton linens and supply of beach towels.
Billy’s artwork and collection is a joy to see and discover new pieces every day.
This is one of those vrbo.com rentals that is way better than the pictures. I didn’t want to leave and will definitely plan a return visit very soon.
Fun Girls Weekend at Camp Billy
A group of friends who met and lived on the same freshman hall in college 36 years ago and the saga continues.....We spent a fabulous weekend at Camp Billy for our annual getaway which always includes good food, wine and lots of laughter. We enjoy preparing meals together and the kitchen was a perfect space for doing that. It has all of the amenities of a well stocked gourmet kitchen, including fresh herbs. We especially enjoyed the long dining table on the porch. The view from the porch combined with the candles, wind chimes and huge porch swing make that area an absolutely beautiful and serene space. All linens and beach towels are provided and are excellent quality. The boathouse and lake area are perfect for sunning and swimming and renting the pontoon is an absolute must! We had a fabulous time cruising the lake at our leisure. Although most of our time was spent enjoying the cabin and lake, we also enjoyed browsing the shops and having dinner at The Purple Onion in Saluda. Billy's well appointed mountain lake home is a perfect vacation getaway and a trip that we plan to repeat.
The Lake Summit properties are now thrown in the mix of 800 properties in the area when searching for properties on the lake. This house is actually ON Lake Summit.....
