About Reservations

We love traveling the world, eating wonderful ethnic food, experiencing nature, and visiting historical places.

Reservations purchased this house in 2008

Why Reservations chose Asheville Area

We grew up in Brevard so we know about the natural beauty of the area. We inherited this lakehouse from one of our parents who in 2008 built this special lake retreat house, called Belonging Place, so that she and groups she cared about could renew themselves in the beautiful, quiet mountains and the mesmerizing lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank yo so much for sharing your beautiful lake home with us. There were six of us (including 2 10 year olds) and we all had space to ourselves and tons of together activities! We love the area and this home is truly special environment. Thank you again for all the supplies and for the wonderful maintenance of this lovely "Belonging Place."

exquisite site

  • 5 of 5

Our family looks forward to this reunion every Christmas at the beautiful lake house. We prepare our Christmas dinner in the well appointed kitchen, sleep in the comfortable beds, and use the boats on the lake...This year we saw a beautiful American Bald Eagle high on a tree lakeside. The house has a special spirit...Our children and grandchildren came from all over the country to see each other and enjoy the marvelous environment. Our hosts were helpful, the weather was warm, the lake was lovely. Hope to return next year. Penny and Terry

Beautiful, spacious, waterfront home

  • 5 of 5

Belonging Place was an ideal rental for our first vacation in NC. The sight of the house with the lake in the background, as well as the view as your enter the front door, were very welcoming. The house was clean and comfortable, and we spent many enjoyable evenings on the outdoor porch with the fireplace. As outdoor enthusiasts, the location to great hikes and waterfalls, was exactly what we were looking for.

Room for the whole family in a BEAUTIFUL setting

  • 5 of 5

Grandparents, children and grandchildren had a wonderful stay at this lovely lake home. 2 dishwashers, washing machines and dryers made for a hassle free visit. The 10 year olds used the paddle board and we all used the pedal boat. We were close to hiking at DuPont and sliding at Sliding Rock. It was a memorable vacation and we hope to come back!

The "OH MY" House

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the front door you could hear "Oh My' look at this and look at that and can you believe all this" The home is wonderful. There is nothing left to be desired. The beds are comfortable as well as all of the furniture in the house. The kitchen is very well stocked. We had a wonderful time playing with the different assortment of boats. The nights were cool enough that we were able to have a fire in the outdoor fireplace. The owners have provided plenty of wood however you might want to bring some fire starter with you. We will definitely will be returning to this very peaceful place. Thank you for sharing your home.

Love Belonging Place

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Belonging Place this year was as wonderful as last year—yes, we are return visitors to this, such a great home away from home. We had the babies as well as other young ones with us this year and the proximity to the lake and “the beach” gave them a wonderful chance to get comfortable with the water. Everyone enjoyed the water, the great weather, the comfort of belonging in and to Belonging Place. Our favorite times were cooking in the commodious kitchen and eating family meals out on the deck. Our two piano players loved the opportunity to perform, and we loved being their audience. Those of us needing to ‘escape’ from time to time enjoyed our rooms. Some of us enjoyed the town of Brevard; others hiked to waterfalls; others just ‘stayed home’. You can have it all at Belonging Place. It’s a wonderful place to stay and our hosts are always lovely.
