Description

As the name suggests, at Lake James Lookout you can enjoy sweeping and spectacular year-round views not only of Lake James but of Linville Gorge Mountain, Shortoff Mountain, and Dobson Knob from the spacious porch, covered patio beneath the porch, or from the private boat dock. While a boat is not provided, you’re welcome to bring your own and use the boat slip at the dock. Spend your days lounging in the sun, swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, and floating on the water, and spend your nights soaking in the luxurious hot tub or making delicious s’mores around the fire pit under the clear and starry sky.

After sleeping in, take a leisurely stroll into the kitchen to make a delicious breakfast of eggs benedict, fresh fruit, and pimento cheese grits to enjoy at the breakfast bar or outdoor dining table on the porch. Sip your coffee while you watch the sun rising higher and higher over the sparkling lake before taking a mid-morning bubble bath with a mimosa in the sleek tub in the master bath. On those inevitably rainy days or lazy afternoons, cozy up in the living room around the wood-burning fireplace to stream your favorite movie or that show you’ve been meaning to watch before taking advantage of the gas grill and posh kitchen (complete with marble countertops, gas range stove with hood, farmhouse sink, and stainless appliances) to create a savory meal of kabobs with chicken, pineapple, and bell peppers for you and your loved ones to enjoy together. In the evening, sway on the porch swing on the covered patio below the porch to watch the sunset before strolling down to the boat dock to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine as you stargaze and watch the moonlight reflect on the water.

Lake James Lookout is in a gated community, The Peninsula, and offers a community pool available for renter use. Located just 45 minutes outside of Asheville in Nebo, NC, this gorgeous lakefront home is the perfect place to getaway and enjoy everything the Lake James area has to offer. Enjoy nearby hiking trails like the Fonta Flora Trail Loop or John Rock Trail before grabbing a refreshing craft beer at Fonta Flora’s open air brewery at Whipporwill Farm. Just 20 minutes away, you’ll find the quaint small town of Marion where you can grab a cold beer at Mica Town Brewing Company, fresh seafood and a cocktail at Crabby Abby’s Bar and Grille, or local handcrafted dish paired with the NC staple, Cheerwine, at McDowell Local. Before heading home, check out the Lake James Antique Mall, or take a short 20 minute drive to the charming town of Morganton where you can find novelty shops and art galleries to pick up a souvenir to remind you of your time in the mountains.

This picturesque home is ideal for groups of friends or family, offering unparalleled opulence along with all of the features and amenities needed for a fantastic lakeside vacation anytime of year!

FAQ

Lake James Lookout is located on Lake James. This home is approximately 25 minutes to Marion, 45 minutes to Black Mountain, and an hour to Asheville, Hickory, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Lake James Lookout is not “pet friendly”. Please be respectful of those owners who, because of allergies or other personal reasons, have chosen not to allow any pets. If housekeeping notes that a pet was present on a non-pet friendly property during your visit, you will be charged a minimum of $600 to clean carpets, upholstered furniture and complete air purification measures. Bringing a pet to a house that is not pet-friendly without owner consent or permission from Greybeard is grounds for termination of the rental agreement without refund. If you must travel with your pet, please contact us for local boarding recommendations. More info about service animals and the ADA is available here.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Lake James Lookout has a keyless entry system. You will receive a unique access code within 3 days of your arrival, allowing you to go straight to the house and check-in starting at 4pm.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Lake James Lookout. Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

We came from Charlotte to stay at Lake James Lookout in late February for a weekend. If you think the pictures of the house and views are beautiful, just wait until you step in. Major pros were: Wonderful floor plan and lot location - you can see the lake and mountains from every angle (including the hot tub), and the sunsets from the vantage point are particularly amazing. Kid friendly - we came with 4 kids (4 to 6 years old) and they loved the basement level with bunk beds, cozy seating, and toys. Amenities - the owners have spared no expense ensuring the house is stocked with everything you would need or want while you're away (linens, smart TVs, all the kitchen gadgets and spices you'd ever need). The house is located above the lake and has a paved walkway down to the large dock, which also has a great rooftop entertainment area. Since we came in February we didn't get to enjoy the community pool, but a great feature for the warmer months. All in all, this was the perfect place for a family with kids or just a getaway for couples. Highly recommend. P.S. Fonta Flora brewery 10 minutes down the road was another plus!
