Every thing was better than expected we had a great time . we plan on a return trip in the Future.
We stayed here in July and it was perfect.
It is a beautiful drive through the mountains no matter which way you come.
The property is very private, very secluded, and probably off the paved road about 1/4 mile, (not that there is any traffic on the paved road).
The house has everything you need except food, and sits on private property on a pond with a view of the mountains.
The kids swam in the lake, fished, and boated.
There are many things to do within 30min to an hour drive. We went whitewater kayaking with Dillsboro river company, (highly recomended), hiked to more waterfalls than I can count, though many of them are right off the road, visited gem mines, dined and shopped in the many picturesque small towns in the area, and just spent quiet time at the house some days.
We will be back, it was perfect.
Thank you Annette for our perfect vacation!
SUPER private, relaxing, lake house in NC mountains
This is a wonderful little house in the woods about 20 minutes from Franklin, NC. It is very peaceful, and as a +bonus+ gets ZERO cell phone reception due to its location. This is a great place to unwind and recharge. It is a 3 BR, 1 Bath with close to everything included. I forgot my robe. No problem. There were four of them ready and waiting for use. The kitchen has pots, pans, glassware, stove, fridge. There's even a clothes washer and dryer. All you really need to bring is food and your toothbrush/toiletries. The property includes a privately-owned, manmade lake (250 feet in diameter / 1 acre in size) with a 4-person paddle boat, a plastic 1-person kayak, and an 8-ft aluminum johnboat. Paddles and personal floatation jackets are included. There are fishing rods, even. Make sure to take a piece of bread to the dock to feed the bream. They attack the crumbs like piranha and are fun to watch. The lake also has trout. Laying on the dock at night is amazing! Being far from any city makes viewing the Milky Way a real treat! This house is +SO+ private that you can not see (nor be seen by) any other man-made structure or neighbor. There's a 4-walled, outside, hot water-equipped shower, which you definitely want to try. There is a large patio with overhead deck, and big, covered front porch. The patio has a swinging bed big enough for two adults, equipped with mosquito netting if you want to "glamp"/sleep outdoors. Despite the lake, bugs were not a problem at all in early October. The quaint town of Highlands is about 45 minutes away. There are many waterfalls in the area worth going to. I would recommend Picklesimer Rock House Falls (Park: 35.01238, -83.24927 and walk up an old logging road and trail to 35.018362, -83.253965) and Glen Falls (Park: 35.033490, -83.235533 -- trail is obvious) near Highlands. The owners are SUPER nice and bend over backwards to be helpful even making courtesy calls to make sure all is ok. There is free, secure WiFi, and a land phone -- so you're not 100% cut off from communication. The house is spotlessly clean and has items you might not expect (telescope, binoculars, 100-ish DVDs, board games, etc.). Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds and one has two twins. The sofa in the den is super comfy and could sleep two more adults. There's a propane grill, fire ring, and hammock. I have already recommended this property to two friends and I've only been home one day.
Wonderful place to stay
We had such a wonderful stay at Lakeside Cove. I could have stayed for weeks. It was enchanting inside and out and anything you could possibly need was provided. It rained hard for half of our stay, but that didn't matter because with three covered outside areas, there was adequate space to enjoy being outside without getting wet. At the end of our trips, I'm always anxious to get home, but this time I really was sad to leave. Hope we can come back again.
The interior is like a page from the Ballard Design Catalogue. The rooms are made of little vignettes giving great ideas for decorating. Every time you look around there is something you didn't notice before.
The cabin was very clean and well stocked. They thought about everything to make your stay comfy and fun.
Outside we had of course the beauty of peace and nature. We did some excursions but everything was kind of a long drive. It was just great relaxing, reading, sleeping, paddle on the water, doing BBQ... the only thing we didn't do was swimming. There is no way when you can't see your feet through the green water!
For sunsets and fog sets you really have to drive up the mountain to watch the spectacular view. Here there is the pond and the mountain around it. Very calming but not so spectacular.
We throughly loved our stay. We regret it was not long enough. But then vacations are always too short!
We brought our grandkids ranging in age from 9-18 to this magical oasis. They spent hours in the water playing with rope swing, swimming, fishing, paddle boating etc. We took Annette's suggestions and explored the nearby waterfalls (kids favorite was Bust you Butt falls). They slid down the waterfall and jumped off the cliff. This is a great place for families! The house is well equipped for cooking and plenty of space for those seeking solitude. I spent every morning on the deck with my coffee before the kids woke up just enjoying the cool air and great view. Loved this place!
