Grand Lakefront 1929 Estate Cabin ~Walk To Town~Guest House~Wireless Internet

Located in: Highlands
"LAKEWOOD" is a splendid waterfront one acre estate property overlooking the broad span of Highland's cherished Mirror Lake. With over 150' of bouldered lakefront, this premier property is not for the average traveler. Comprised of the main cabin (built in 1929) and offering a charming separate guest cottage, this home is a quintessential "Joe Webb" log cabin. (Joe Webb was a celebrated Western NC log cabin builder in the 1920-1940’s.) Rarely are log cabins - even of this caliber - as well conserved or as painstakingly updated as this one is. The main cabin is elegantly renovated while preserving the architecture and integrity of the fabled Joe Webb design while the guest house is modern, but with true cabin charm.

LAKEFRONT SITING: Sited atop a gentle slope overlooking the water and forested preserve beyond, Lakewood is the very definition of waterside sanctuary and high mountain refinement. More than 30 mullioned windows open out to frame the lake view and capture the gentle summer breezes. The covered upstairs porch and two raised stone terraces offer family and friends iconic lakeside views and gathering spots. Darting fish, waterfowl and breathtaking sunsets make for memorable moments on the terraces. There is also a hammock by the lake.

HOME FEATURES: Inside the main home, there are three levels, two fireplaces and three spacious bedrooms (including a rustic 3 bed loft with original log ladder access.) There are also hardwood floors, collected designer furnishings, cathedral ceilings and updated baths plus a Sub-Zero kitchen with Viking gas cooking. A charming one bedroom (queen) guest house complete with mini-kitchen, sitting area, full bath and lakefront terrace allows for ample guest separation. Out on the property, stroll the gentle one acre grounds and take in the extensive rock paths, perennial, fern and hosta gardens. Or take out one of our canoes to enjoy the scenery.

CLOSE TO TOWN LOCATION: Mirror Lake is one of Highlands oldest and most sought after in-town neighborhoods. Very close to downtown Highlands, you can walk to town, though most guests would probably drive. It’s only a 5 minute drive to everything Highlands has to offer. The neighborhood itself is very walkable and scenic.

HOME SERVICES: (AC/Internet/Cable TV/Blu-Ray/Whole House Music/Baby Grand Piano/3 Fireplaces/Main Terrace Firepit / Hot Tub)
Lakewood is air-conditioned and heated (both main and guest house). It has excellent high speed wireless internet in both the main and guest houses. TV: There are 3 flat screen cable TVs’ in the main home. The living room TV is a Smart TV for Hulu/Netflix, etc. The guest house has cable TV. In the main house, 2 of the 3 bedrooms have cable TV; the loft bedroom does not. There are 6 premium terrace chairs for the lower level main terrace in the main house. There is seating for 6 on the upper porch. There are 12 extra outdoor chairs in the shed. There is a whole house music system. Bring your i-phone/ipod or CD’s. There is a wood burning fireplace in the main level living room. There is a gas fireplace in the lower level master suite. The guest house has a stove style fire heater. There is a firepit on the main house terrace. Firewood is plentiful and provided, as are FP tools and tools for roasting marshmallows and s’mores. There is a baby grand piano. There are two canoes.

BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS: The master is on the lower level with a king bed and an ensuite bath and fireplace. The guest bedroom on the lower level has a queen bed and has its own ensuite bathroom. The loft bedroom has 3 twin beds with a full bath on the main level, just below it, which also serves as a powder room. The guest house has a queen bed and has a full bath and private terrace with seating area and mini-kitchen.

EVENTS: This property has never before been offered for guest rental. It is in pristine condition and we intend for it to remain that way for our guests. Sorry, the home is not generally available for events, though we are open to hearing about yours.

PETS: Please call owner (Tom) to discuss pets. A pet deposit will be requested in addition to the regular security deposit. We adore dogs (and have two) but we've had unfavorable experiences with pet damage.
