Description

Offering some of the best views around of Lake James, The Waterman is a stunning lakefront home that allows you to enjoy those views from the massive floor-to-ceiling windows while cozied up in the living room, while lounging on the screened porch, balcony, and patio, or while gathered around the outdoor fire pit. This spacious 5-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home boasts three separate king-sized bedrooms, including the main level master with a gas fireplace, a fourth bedroom with two full-size beds, and a fifth bedroom with a full-size bunk bed. It also has a lower-level den area with a TV and pool table (fireplace not usable). In addition to the outdoor areas mentioned above, you'll also find a hot tub, a private dock, and a gas grill to enjoy during your lake vacation! Located just 45 minutes from Asheville in Nebo, this spacious and upscale lakefront home is the perfect place to get away and enjoy everything the Lake James area has to offer.

Ideally located near Lake James State Park, you can spend your days exploring nearby hiking trails like the Fonta Flora Loop, Overmountain Victory, or the Holly Discovery (complete with child-friendly activities). If you don't mind a bit of a drive, you can visit another state park nearby, South Mountains, for a more challenging hike like Chestnut Knob or a beautiful waterfall hike like High Shoal Falls before grabbing a refreshing craft beer at Fonta Flora's open-air brewery at Whippoorwill Farm a mere 5 minutes from the home. Also located in Nebo is the award-winning South Creek Winery which welcomes pets and hosts numerous events throughout the year.

​​​​​​​Take a scenic 20-minute drive to reach the quaint small town of Marion where you can grab another cold one at Mica Town Brewing Company, fresh seafood & cocktails at Crabby Abby's Bar and Grille, or a handcrafted dish paired with the NC staple, Cheerwine, at McDowell Local. Before returning to your home away from home, shop around at the Lake James Antique Mall, or take another 30-minute drive to the "Simply Charming" town of Morganton where you can find even more shops, regional museums, and art galleries where you can pick up a souvenir to remind you of your time in the mountains. You'll also find even more delicious dining and drink options in Morganton like Root and Vine, Treat, Catawba Brewing Company, and the original Fonta Flora taproom.

Please Note: This home is pet-friendly with an additional fee. This home is lakefront and offers its own private dock on Lake James to enjoy. While the home offers access to Lake James, it does NOT offer access to Camp Lake James amenities. The boat and jet skis permanently docked are NOT available to renters. Only the left side of the dock (left slip and outside) is available to renters. For boat rentals, contact the Lake James Neighborhood Store (3.2 miles away) or Noah's Landing (9.2 miles away).

Property policy: the primary guest must be at least 25 years old

"We had a nice family visit and the Waterman was a great house for families such as ours. We had planned to bring the grandparents. They ended up not being able to come, but it is probably better they didn't. Access around the the outside of the house is not for folks who have trouble on uneven surfaces. Nevertheless, we had a blast for our first visit to Lake James."

"We appreciated that we were able to arrive early and the place was in great shape (clean). It was vary spacious and suited the needs of our big group. The area and views were exactly as expected, exceptional. We were not aware that a new well was installed just before we arrived and the water smelled and tasted like chorine for most of the week, we were vary disappointed and had to use bottled water for drinking. We also lost power to our room on the lower level the last night (possible circuit breaker). Lastly the deck rails are in bad shape and should be replaced as soon as possible (vary weathered), someone will get hurt if they lean on them. For the inconveniences noted above; We would recommend this place to stay."

"The Waterman was beautiful, and the location was great! The house had everything we needed and is large and spacious. We rented a boat at the Lake James Marina and the house is located close to the marina, which made the process easy to pick-up and return the boat. The house is centralized on the lake and perfect for exploring the lake by boat."

"This house is beautiful and comfortable. It is spacious and has all the amenities that our family of four and two guest needed. We enjoyed relaxing on the dock and swimming in deep water. The location is great with easy access to the marina, state park, trails, and of course, a brewery. We will definitely consider staying again at The Waterman of Lake James."

"Beautiful house, so pretty and peaceful. Large enough that we all had our own space, but we could also be together. This home truly had everything you could want. Also, they allowed us to check in early. We arrived almost an hour early, so that was quite helpful. The night around the fire outside was probably my favorite time. Gorgeous outside with the water view and even wild flowers."
