Quiet, peaceful week by the lake.     

Our family loved this beautiful home in such a lush private setting with everything we could want and more!  Kids loved the hot tub, massage chair, fire pit, extensive playground and play area.  Each bedroom has a deck where we could watch the lake….mornings a mist would rise and a few times we saw deer wander out of the woods into the yard – awesome!  The home is very clean with lovely furnishings, well maintained, kitchen well equipped, and obviously shows a great deal of thoughtful care.  It’s convenient to town, restaurants & shopping.  We’ve already recommended this home to friends and will be back for a week this fall!  Thanks again for the best vacation ever!  The Carson Family, Gainesville, FL


Julian Lake Lodge was all that was advertised and more. It's a beautiful setting on the lake, and we enjoyed being there during the fall color season. Each cool morning we could watch the mist rising off the water in the sunshine, from the many decks on the house. The location was great, away from the hustle of Asheville but just a quick trip into town for fun and food. And not very far from Hendersonville with its shops and good restaurants. And Asheville was a great entry point for the Smokey Mountains drives and hikes. This property is newly renovated, clean and with every amenity that could possibly be required. Our stay was a reunion of siblings and spouses, and the eight of us were more than comfortable. We would recommend this property to everyone without hesitation.  

- The Muempfer Family, Suttons Bay, MI 


Over the past 5 years, my husband and I have enjoyed your sweet little Joy Chalet, and our adult kids have stayed with us at your Dream and Rose vacation houses. This year we included the grand kids and stayed at your absolutely amazing 5 bedroom lodge!   


I can’t begin to express the incredible beauty of the home and its lush location! We spent hours outside on the decks relaxing on the very comfortable patio furniture just enjoying the peace and quiet. What a convenient location for exploring the area….it was just a few minutes to downtown and the Biltmore House (always a treat to visit!). 


Your decorating taste is impeccable….the furniture is beautiful yet very comfortable. I love the furry soft throws you use at your homes.  We lacked for nothing!  The king and queen beds are the BEST we’ve ever slept on….we sleep better at your home than at ours!  Great TV’s were everywhere and we were quite impressed with the huge movie library.   


True to your word, you DO know how to spoil your guests and you thought of every little thing we could possibly need.  The hot tub and massage chair were a hit with everyone and the grandkids spent hours hiking in the woods,  playing on the outdoor playground set and in the kids playroom and with the air hockey & foosball tables.  Never once did they come to us asking to be entertained!   


We ate most of our meals in and found the kitchen extremely well stocked with everything we needed.  Beautiful dishes too.  We appreciate you included the children’s non-breakable dishes as well.   


We highly recommend this home to everyone! You will not be disappointed! We’ll definitely be back!

Relaxation!  Quiet property conveniently located to nearby shopping, groceries & restaurants. A short drive into downtown Asheville or Biltmore. Spacious house with plenty of room the two families easily spread out in. Picturesque lake view. Peaceful. Relaxing. Owner expertly maintains several properties in the Asheville area. Highly recommended.  

- The Krasznai Family, Apex, NC 


We were beyond impressed with this gracious lake home in such a tranquil location with beautiful forest surroundings.  Mornings had the kids out fishing for breakfast.  Everyone was well entertained with all the amenities….sitting in the hot tub at night, marshmallow roasts at the fire pit, kids’ playground, decks all around the house with plenty of seating, big kitchen with everything we could need, big screen TV, something for all ages.  We loved the Asheville location with its awesome restaurants, shops, golf, Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, waterfalls, rafting, hiking….it’s a great place to explore.  We highly recommended this home!   

- The Gallagher Group 


We just got back from a wonderful stay at this property and I would recommend it highly. The home is gorgeous and well-stocked with entertaining activities from HD TV, a cabinet of DVDs and even "old school" board games! Fun for the whole family. My husband and children particularly loved the massage chair, located in the living room. I would recommend this property for parents with children, couples and retirees. Home is only 20 minutes from the Biltmore Estate and we recommend a visit. In summary - our 10 yr old, walked in, examined the house for a while, saw the "kids suite" he'd be sleeping in, saw all of the fun activities and announced "Best House Ever!" ha ha

Your Lodge was a fabulous place for our family reunion! I love the photos on your website, but they did not begin to do justice to how really spectacular this home is and in such a green, peaceful setting! Thank you so much for allowing us to be one of your firsts guests here. There was plenty room for all of us, the bedrooms being so separately spaced gave us the privacy we needed and the kids loved their playroom and outdoor playground. Even though the lodge is very private, it was still very close to all the area activities we enjoyed….the Biltmore House, the Blueridge Parkway, Chimney Rock, DuPont State Park (amazing waterfalls!) and we even explored the trails behind the lodge.  


You certainly thought of every little thing we could possibly need and then some!  Loved the plush beds, the massage chair, hot tub, the covered decks for great lounging & visiting.  Good job!  We’ll definitely reserve the home for this fall to see the leaf colors.   

-The Sampson Family – FL, NY & SC 



As with all your homes that we’ve stayed at over the years, your new Lodge meets all we had hoped for and more! That’s saying a lot since your homes excel with super comfort, gorgeous furnishings, plenty to entertain both adults and kids. This time we came with 3 other couples for a week of relaxation and golf. It was great to come home to the hot tub, massage chair and extremely comfortable beds! Great kitchen…so well stocked with everything my husband, the gourmet chef, needs for cooking for us. That’s another reason we stay at your homes! 


Thanks for being such gracious hosts and taking care of our every need.  

- Sue & Justin – Atlanta, GA   


This is our first time to Western North Carolina and now we want to move here!  The beauty of the mountains and greenery everywhere was refreshing and life-giving!  Wow!  What a wonderful setting your home is in....so quiet and private.  Our stay could not have been better!  Anything we needed was there and the furnishings and interior design was exceptional.  We’ve traveled extensively and stayed at many vacation homes and this is the best home by far!  

- The Fields family,  Phoenix AZ   


It was a last minute decision to come to the mountains and we were ever so grateful that your home was available. We have never felt so pampered! The Lodge is huge and every inch has been thoughtfully decorated. I was so inspired by the decorating ideas that I took loads of pictures so I can duplicate some of it in my own home! This home is comfortable and plenty of room for a large family.  

Stephanie was a gracious host and saw to our every need. She even arranged to have Biltmore tickets waiting in the home when we arrived. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your very welcoming home.  

 -Phyllis & Chester and family, Charlotte NC
