vacation rental description

This is an original Lake Summit house with wormy-chestnut walls, modern bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, screen porch overlooking the lake, lovely stone terrace behind the house, a fabulous boat house with room for renter's own boat, use of owner's kayak, fabulous entertaining room above the boathouse.

Parking is either above or below the house. From above, you enter the large living room with beamed cathedral ceiling and fireplace. Through the two windows you look out onto the screened porch which overlooks the lake. To the right is the large kitchen which often becomes the central gathering place of the house. It shares the chimney with the living room and has had many a cozy fire. The kitchen is well equipped. We eat at the lazy susan table built by the original builder for the dining room which connects the porch and the kitchen.

Back to the front door, going left, is a hall. Off of the hall on the left is a large bedroom overlooking the terrace. It can accommodate a blow-up mattress, if needed. It has a bath with tub and a laundry chute. At the end of the hall is a bath with shower and a separate bedroom with a sink and two lovely windows overlooking the lake and the side garden. At the beginning of the hall on the right is the original master bedroom with an antique double bed and large bathroom with tub. This room opens onto the screen porch. (The screen porch is between this bedroom and the dining room).

From the front porch there are steps leading to the downstairs very large bedroom with Italian tile floors and two twin beds that can be set up as a king bed. There is plenty of space for a queen size blow up mattress if needed as well. There are two bathrooms, one with a claw-foot tub and a dressing table, the other with tub and shower. We converted the two closets into a tiny room for child size bunk beds that are very comfortable and have on occasion even been used by adults. The final room downstairs is a dedicated laundry room that receives clothes from above.

Continuing down the steps is a charming pathway of stones and steps to the South Lake Summit Road and across the road is the fabulous waterfront area. The waterfront consists of a large double boat house with great room above that has a large 'kitchen' with wooden counters and cabinets, a stove and ice-maker, toaster, blender, plastic dishes, a refrigerator. It is not a real kitchen because there is no plumbing on the lake but we have cooked many a meal here, either on the grill or on the stove. We just pack up our plastic dishes and take them to the house.

Part of this outdoor room is in the sun and part is shaded and there are two large tables for eating, rocking chairs and lots of space for gathering. There is even a place to jump from here into the lake. Back on the water there is a stone terrace with wooden steps leading into the water and a wooden dock with diving board. The children (and adults) spend the day jumping into the water, skiing, playing, sunning, face-painting, eating pop-scicles. The lake is safe. Our house is particularly well situated in a cove that is both protected from other boats but open to the fun of lake activity.

For your protection, all billing and payments flow directly through VRBO. You can pay either with a credit card (2.5% fee applies), or with eCheck which is free.

You can rent paddleboards and other water toys nearby. On a sunny day everyone is in and out of the water all day long. We eat lunch in the upper room of the boat house where you can sun or get out of the sun. Some even jump into the lake from the upper level. There is a great 'kitchen' with counters and cabinets but no sink because of the lake. However, there is a refrigerator, a stove and an ice-maker, plus electric blender and toaster. There are many bikers and walkers who enjoy the 14 mile long lake road. You may want to bring your own bikes.

traveler reviews for this lake summit house rental

Beautiful and perfect Lake Summit getaway!

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: October 12, 2013

My husband and my 8 year old twin daughters LOVED this beautiful home! The views are stunning from this unique and gorgeous lake home. We loved the kitchen and dining area with its lazy susan. The warm wood paneling, the fabulous fire place, the covered loggia overlooking the lake, the bedrooms, grounds, boat house and lake frontage were superb. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we look forward to making this an annual getaway. Thank you for letting us be a guest in your fabulous home!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Vintage Lake Summit Patron

Review submitted: March 1, 2014   Date of arrival: July 14, 2013

I am 58 and learned to ski on Lake Summit when I was 5 years old. My wife, three sons and I have been spending two weeks at Lake Summit for 19 years. Our sons are now 19, 21 and 23 and we often have 5 to 7 of their friends staying with us. We trailer our boat to Lake Summit and ski and play on the water for two weeks. We hang out and eat lunch in the boat house. We eat dinner at 10 or 11 pm because we stay in the boat house so late and because we grill something most nights at the house. The big round table is great for having ten eat dinner. We have fed as many as 25 in the house.

On the rain days, we go to Hendersonville, visit the stores, eat lunch and go to a movie. There is always something to do.

A lot of fun.

Recommended for: families with teenagers

Owners response: We love having you each year and hope you continue to come each summer for years to come. Thank you and we will see you this summer!
