The huge screened-in porch has a dining table for 8, a couch for napping, 8 rocking chairs, 2 rocking horses, and a dress-up trunk that's fun for everyone! Most bedrooms have a lake view and expansive windows designed to maximize the cross breezes, and all have ceiling fans (though there's AC if you need it). Bedroom 1 is the master with a queen bed...This Elegant, Cozy Home Has Everything You Need To Get Away From It All.

The huge screened-in porch has a dining table for 8, a couch for napping, 8 rocking chairs, 2 rocking horses, and a dress-up trunk that's fun for everyone! Most bedrooms have a lake view and expansive windows designed to maximize the cross breezes, and all have ceiling fans (though there's AC if you need it). Bedroom 1 is the master with a queen bed and adjoining bath with soaking tub and separate shower. Bedroom 2 has twin beds which can be joined into a king, and a bathroom with shower next door. The cool downstairs bedrooms can be adjusted to suit your needs: bedroom 3 can be either twin beds or a king bed; bedroom 4, which has a queen bed, can also have a crib or a toddler bed. There is a large full bath downstairs. There's a covered lanai with a hammock, perfect for curling up with a book during an afternoon shower. The modern kitchen has everything you need, including basic ingredients and condiments, all major appliances, a gas stove, and a unique “invisible corner” picture window that welcomes in the lake views. Enjoy grilling on the propane grill next to the flower garden outside-- there is a seating area and a refurbished vintage see-saw swing, so nobody has to grill alone! Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry and pantry area, with full-sized washer and dryer. The living room has a huge gas-assist, wood-burning fireplace built from stones recovered from the original residence on this property, dating back to 1940. The upright piano, along with a selection of games & puzzles, books for all ages, and a TV with internet TV and DVD's cover all of your entertainment needs. The boathouse is a quick walk down the hill. There you'll find plenty of chairs and an umbrella on the dock, a canoe for exploring the lake, and some floats. There's a basic kitchen, a half-bath, and a bedroom with two cots—perfect for kids, or anyone who wants to start the day with a refreshing dip in the lake. There is an upstairs room with screened-doors on all sides and a covered porch with a picnic table and chairs. The adjacent beach area has a large picnic table, and a second grill is available inside the boathouse for lakefront cookouts. This house is just so comfortable-- you'll enjoy a week away from the stresses of modern life in our luxurious lake retreat! We are 10 minutes from Saluda, NC, a charming little town with great BBQ and cafes, a tail-gate market, some lovely shops, and live music on the weekends. The area boasts world-class cycling, The Gorge zipline through the beautiful Green River Gorge, paddling on the upper Green River, hiking, waterfalls, and much more! We are about 30 miles from beautiful Asheville, home of the Biltmore Estate, great music venues, fabulous restaurants shopping, spas, and breweries. The amazing new Sierra Nevada brewery is a 30-minute drive, and well worth a day trip. So is Brevard, home to the highly respected Brevard Music School and the awesome Oscar Blues brewery, along with amazing mountain biking and hiking trails in DuPont and Pisgah Forests. In historic Flat Rock, 20 minutes away, you'll find the fabulous Flat Rock Playhouse, the Carl Sandburg House & goat farm, the most delicious cinnamon rolls at the Flat Rock Bakery, and the Flat Rock Cinema, a bistro theater presenting independent films and live music on Sundays. We are 25 minutes from Tryon, home to the new world-class equestrian center, which is a marvel. Tryon also has several great antiques shops and some lovely restaurants. We run most of our errands in Hendersonville, 20 minutes away. You'll find everything you need as well as an adorable historic Main Street. This part of the country has so much to offer- we won't judge you if you decide to spend all your days on the lake, but if you do venture out, there's so much to explore.More
