Description

At North Point Retreat on Lake James, you can enjoy sweeping and spectacular year-round views not only of Lake James but Linville Gorge Mountain, Shortoff Mountain, and Dobson Knob from the spacious covered deck or from the boat dock walking distance from the home across the street. At the dock, you’ll find 2 kayaks, 1 paddle board, floats, and noodles to help you maximize your time on the water. While a boat is not provided, you’re welcome to bring your own and use the boat slip at the dock or rent a boat from a local company. Spend your days swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, and floating on the water and spend your nights making delicious s’mores around the fire pit.

In the morning, step onto the covered deck and sip your coffee while you watch the sunrise over the sparking lake or slip into the gorgeous sunroom complete with Spanish terracotta tiling, large windows, and lush plants to read or relax. On those inevitable rainy days or lazy afternoons, cozy up in the living room around the wood burning stone fireplace to watch your favorite movie before taking advantage of the gas grill and spacious kitchen (complete with granite countertops and stainless appliances) to create a delicious meal for you and your loved ones to enjoy together. At the end of the day, sit on the covered deck or stroll down to the boat dock to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the moonlight reflect on the water.

Located just 45 minutes outside of Asheville in Nebo, NC, this beautiful lakeside home is the perfect place to retreat 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. Before heading home, check out the Lake James Antique Mall or take a short drive to the charming town of Morganton where you can find art galleries, boutiques, and local restaurants.

Ideal for groups of friends or family, this picturesque lakeside retreat comes with all the adventure and amenities needed for the perfect lakeside getaway anytime of year!

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

North Point Retreat 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?

North Point Retreat 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?

North Point Retreat 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 North Point Retreat. 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.

The location and home were perfect for our group. The entire rental process was very easy and I really appreciated the way you stayed in touch before we arrived to see if we needed any info or had questions. I would not hesitate recommending that my friends/family rent from Greybeard in the future!

Loved it
