About Bob Arnett
I'm a laid back, semi-retired good 'ole boy from the Western Carolina mountains. Graduated Appalachian State with an IT degree and took it to Atlanta for 30 years. Finally realized my dream was to be back in the mountains and on a lake. Getting away from the city, traffic, and daily grind was such a stress reliever! Now I travel around the Carolinas helping homeowners invest in solar to eliminate their power bills. I get back up to the lakehouse as often as I can, but not enough so I decided to share it with you. Please take care of it as it will become my permanent home soon.
Bob Arnett purchased this House in 2008
Why Bob Arnett chose Blairsville
I was blessed to stumble on this property in 2005. I fell in love with it because of the gentle slope to the water, the circular driveway with plenty of parking and separate parking for boat trailers. I designed the lakehouse myself to take advantage of the space, views, and peacefulness of the setting. I worked the 1.3 acres for 3 years, wearing out a chain saw and at least 2 weedeaters. In May of 2009, the house was ready. The following year, I finished the basement by adding another master room with a king and 2 bunk beds, a private bath, and a workout room overlooking the lake. The firepit "amphitheater" area was built in 2016. The house still looks brand new and we like it that way. It's very comfortable for families or just a few couples enjoying some time away from the grind. Blairsville is full of heritage. There seems to be a festival or parade almost every weekend. The antique shops and flea markets are loaded with treasures. There is plenty to do in the area from antique shopping, coming through huge flea markets, hiking, horseback riding, chasing waterfalls, exploring the other nearby towns like Blue Ridge and Murphy, NC (20 minutes away to the Casino). Of course, you can always waste the day by swimming, floating, and fishing off the dock. Local marinas have pontoons and jet skis for rent too.

Fall Break Perfection
Great property with great access to lake, Blue Ridge and Blairsville. Owner was very helpful and we highly recommend!
Thanks for the kind words. Glad you had a good time and enjoyed the area.
We go on two trips trips a year, with four to eight boats. This house had plenty of parking for truck and trailer. The house was really nice and plenty of room. Best house we have ever rent.
Thanks for the kind words Jeremy. Hope you guys caught a lot of fish!!!
An all-around great experience!
This was a great experience from check-in to check-out! The home is beautiful and located in a secluded cove. If you have a boat or jet ski, it doesn't get tossed around while at this dock. This isn't true for many of the other properties on the lake. Bob was great to work with and has also stocked the home nicely with items you may need while on vacation. A++ for this one!
Thanks for the kind words Dennis. This first summer on VRBO was successful due to great guests like yourself. You were one of the first to reserve too! Thank you!
One of the best vacations my family had! Beautiful house. Very spacious. Great location.
This house was great! Two families stayed, and we had plenty of room. All the rooms were decorated nice. Made you feel like home! The upper back deck had a beautiful view of the lake and a big table to enjoy lunch/dinner. The lower area had a table and swings for my kids. Also had a huge fire pit/grill. We sat by it and had s’mores and cooked steaks. The dock was perfect! We jumped off it into the lake and it was perfect. The house is located on an end cove to we didn’t have any traffic from other houses around. Very quite and relaxing. I would definitely recommend this house! Looking forward to working with the owner again.
Thank you for the kind words Jesse. We love it there and enjoy the peacefulness. Plan ahead. Others are already re-booking!
We had a wonderful time. Everything was clean and as advertised. The communications were split on and all information was very handy. Close enough to town where we were not isolated but we were always had tons of privacy. Great trip.
Awesome lake house
This was a great trip. Excellent location on the lake... the house was excellent and had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and Bob was a great host!
Thank you Joe. Wish you could have stayed longer!
