Property Highlights

Within a short walk of Camp Lake James facilities and nearby trail access points, this three-bedroom and three-and-a-half-bath cabin can sleep up to 8 people comfortably and offers a screened porch, open-air deck, gas grill, and beautiful backyard area with artificial turf that allows for a year-round outdoor space of mud-free play for pups and kiddos. Inside, the home is filled with sleek, stylish furnishings and offers ROKU smart TVs, a SINGTRIX karaoke machine, and a cozy wood-burning fireplace to enjoy. As a guest at Trailside Retreat, you will be able to enjoy the exclusive amenities within Camp Lake James for the duration of your stay—take a dip in the pool, explore the lake by kayak, grab a quick bite at the Canteen, curl up by the stone outdoor fireplace, and enjoy community-led activities to your heart’s content.

Located in Nebo, just 45 minutes from Asheville, this beautiful and pet-friendly lakeside cabin is the perfect place to rest, relax, and recharge as you enjoy everything that the Lake James area has to offer. Spend your days adventuring on the nearby hiking trails before grabbing a refreshing craft beer at Fonta Flora’s open-air brewery at Whipporwill Farm (1.5 miles away), or travel less than 20 minutes to the charming small town of Marion where you can grab another cold one at Mica Town Brewing Company, or sample fresh seafood and a cocktail at Crabby Abby’s Bar and Grille. After savory bites and sips, shop around at the Lake James Antique Mall, or take another short 30-minute drive to the “Simply Charming” town of Morganton where you can find more gift shops and art galleries to pick up a souvenir to remind you of your time in the mountains or for the ones you’re thinking of that couldn’t join you on this trip.

Please note: This home is pet-friendly with an additional fee. There is an exterior security camera. This home offers exclusive access to Camp Lake James community amenities through the end of 2022 (not accessible in 2023), including a spacious pool & covered pavilion area with a cabana and a brand new recreation area complete with six Pickleball courts and beautiful landscaping with a waterfall and shaded seating areas within a 5-minute walk of the home. Please note that the docks and fitness center are private and off-limits. Some blackout dates and holiday limitations apply. Please inquire for more information.

While the home is near the lake, it is NOT lakefront and does NOT have its own private boat dock. However, you are welcome to rent a pontoon boat through Lake James Neighborhood Store (4.7 miles away) or Noah’s Landing (10.7 miles away).

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Trailside Retreat is located within close proximity to Lake James in its 1780 neighborhood and offers exclusive access to Camp Lake James amenities. This home is approximately 20 minutes to Marion, 30 minutes to Morganton, 45 minutes to Black Mountain, and an hour to Asheville. 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?

Trailside Retreat at Lake James is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

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?

You will receive check-in instructions prior to your arrival with driving directions and key access information. You do not need to stop by our office to pick up your keys. You will 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 select option 1, 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.

WILL THERE BE FIREWOOD PROVIDED?

Trailside Retreat at Lake James has an indoor wood-burning fireplace, but it does not have an outdoor fire pit. Firewood is not supplied by Greybeard. Some houses may have a small leftover supply of firewood for renter use; however, it is best to purchase your own small bundle of wood or Duraflame pressed logs at the local grocery store. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted, and you cannot bring your own portable fire pit. Cutting branches, limbs or trees on the property is strictly prohibited. You can use limbs found on the ground. 

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

Wifi is available at Trailside Retreat at Lake James. 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.

WHERE AND HOW DO I ACQUIRE A BOAT RENTAL IN LAKE JAMES?

While Trailside Retreat at Lake James is in close proximity to the lake, it is NOT lakefront and does NOT have its own private boat dock. For questions regarding boat rentals, please contact the Lake James Neighborhood Store (828) 391-8600 or Noah’s Landing (828) 707-2174.
