Your dream of vacationing on a private island in the middle of a majestic mountain lake is a reality with this property. The 5 bedroom 3 full bath 2 half bath home is located on the Southern facing shore of Buck Knob Island in the middle of Lake Glenville. This property conveys the feeling of secluded living, while remaining completely accessible and convenient to the mainland and nearby town of Cashiers.

The space
Once in Cashiers the drive to the landing is very easy with no winding roads. The 5-minute, boat ride is what makes this community unlike any neighborhood or club in the mountains. No cars, no traffic, just golf carts and ATVs roam the roads of Buck Knob. The home was custom designed for mountain/lake life. The large great room arches support the beautiful cathedral ceiling. It is a stunning architectural element not to be missed. The spacious open layout allows for easy flow between indoor and outdoor living, with two indoor and one outdoor fireplace. The master bedroom on the first floor is spacious, with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Two guest bedrooms upstairs offer guests privacy and plenty of room to enjoy their mountain experience. On the lower level, the bonus room is set up as the ultimate game room. A pool table, shuffleboard table, dartboard and huge television all create a recreational dream for the kids or the kids-at-heart. Two additional sunny guest suites downstairs provide more privacy for your friends & family. The outside of this home is as beautiful as the inside. There is a walking trail that circles the island.

Your rental comes with the use of a small Boston Whaler to get back and forth to the landing. There is available through Signal Ridge Marina pontoon boats available to rent for the week or we can provide you with a contact for directly renting from. You are welcome to bring your own boat as well. The lake offers day cruises, tubing, waterskiing, fishing, or just hanging out at one of the three waterfalls feeding the lake. We have a kayak and two paddle boards for your use on the lake. Get to shore to roam the beautiful towns of Cashiers and Highlands or take short drives to several beautiful hiking trails close by.

The house offers a hot tub, washer/dryer, full kitchen, and 3 full bathrooms and 2 half bathrooms.
