Dale's Creek

Lake James, North Carolina

Another great property managed by Lake James Rentals. This home invites you to your own private waterfront playground! Wake up to the sounds of Dales Creek running by the house, then bring your coffee just a few steps down to the waterfront to enjoy the sunrise. Cast a line out from the back of your secluded cove, enjoy a meal at the picnic pavilion overlooking pristine 7,000 acre Lake James, or just spend the day paddling around and exploring the sights of Southern Appalachia. Bring everyone together as the sun sets to enjoy the cool of the evening around the campfire before retiring to any of 3 bedrooms in this spacious beach-style home. Or maybe you would prefer to drift off to sleep on the screened outdoor Summer sleeping porch and enjoy the sounds of the wildlife all around you.
This 1650 square foot home comfortably sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms, with additional sleeping space for 3 between the hand-crafted futon in the open loft and the daybed on the screened sleeping porch. There are 2 full bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen that will provide you with all the comforts of home. The eat-in kitchen provides seating for 6. The home boasts beautiful hardwood floors and ceramic tile throughout, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and Internet. Two spacious 8’X32’ porches provide plenty of additional outdoor living space, as well as an 8’X16’ sundeck, an outdoor shower, and a private 200 square foot covered pavilion with a large picnic table.
A large canoe is also provided for exploring the lake and the undeveloped islands. With no visible neighbors in this wooded location, you will enjoy many days filled with peace and solitude. There is plenty of room on the large 4 acre lot for parking vehicles, boats, trailers, and more. Bring all the toys! The boat ramp is only 2 miles away.
