Our house is the last on a quiet "no outlet" street on one of the best hidden coves on Lake James. But, it's only a couple hundred yards to the main channel and big mountain views. Our place & neighborhood is homey, comfortable and laid back, no posh, gated community with guardhouse here. A place to relax, fish, swim, use our 4 kayaks, hang your hammock on the dock or tie up your own boat or pontoon rental for your stay. Black Bear, Hidden Cove, or Canal Bridge are the closest boat launches.

The space
A rare find on a lovely mountain lake. House is located in one of the earliest subdivisions on Lake James. We provide 4 kayaks, paddles, and life preservers for your use. Dock has a sunny deck and shade underneath for lazing in your hammock.
There are tv's with dish network in two bedrooms and the main living room, and internet/wifi (but who needs that, this is outdoor paradise!) Life is better at the lake!
Apologies to mobility challenged folks. The house is older and on steep terrain so stairs are required. There are only two stairs to access the back door in the carport so getting in the house with a wheelchair or other disabilities is possible but accessing the dock would be a challenge.
Also apologies for pet lovers. The bad have ruined it for the good so please don't ask.

Where you’ll be

Nebo, North Carolina, United States

Nearby are miles of hiking trails in Pisgah National Forest, Linville Gorge wilderness area, and Lake James State Park. A great spot for a weekend retreat or family get together. Our house is located on a nice private little cove a little away from the main channel. It is often very peaceful, sometimes even with the whole cove to yourself, with exception of some summer weekends holidays.
Lake James is known for its natural beauty having thousands of acres of undeveloped and protected lake shore. The house is 50 minutes to Asheville and all it has to offer, 10 minutes to downtown Marion home of the Bigfoot Festival, and 30 minutes to Morganton.

I used to travel a lot and work as a commercial fisherman in Alaska. Spent the last many years building my off grid homestead and managing over 200 colonies of honeybees. I now still keep bees on a smaller scale selling honey at the North Asheville Tailgate Market every other Saturday and work on, collect, and trade vintage cars/motorcycles and manage my rentals. Love being outdoors, putting around the hills on my motorcycle, as well as swinging a lady around the dance floor at some great live music. I see some tropical travel, sailing and diving in my future.
