About Marianne and Denny Smith

We retired to Hilton Head Island in 2000, which we love. However, we wanted an escape from the summer heat and began looking for the perfect mountain lake, and found it at Lake Glenville! We love the clean, fresh mountain air surrounded by wildlife. Lake Glenville is one of the prettiest lakes we have ever seen and never grow tired of the scenery.

Marianne and Denny Smith purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Marianne and Denny Smith chose Lake Glenville

We wanted to be high above the lake where we could kick back on the porch and enjoy the view. Our porch is delightful and we are frequently visited by hummingbirds and butterfly's and an occasional fox and raccoon .Maybe even a bear one day??

What makes this cottage unique

Great porch with rockers, swing and wicker furniture. Updated bathrooms and gourmet kitchen, luxury linens.

Easy access to Signal Ridge Marina (2 minute walk!) for pontoon boat rentals. Only 5 miles into Cashiers for shopping and restaurants.

Beautiful Location. Beautiful Cottage. Just perfec

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed in this lovely cottage when we traveled to the area for a wedding. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. It is very roomy, well decorated, and comfortable. It had all the comforts we needed and the kitchen was well appointed for cooking. My favorite part was the upper porch. It was such a comfortable outdoor space with a spectacular view! We had a lot of family staying in the area in many different cottages, and I was definitely happy with our choice, it was my favorite out of the many cottages we saw. Marianne was amazing to work with, very flexible and kind and even sending us back a book we forgot. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and to recommend to all our family and friends.

A beautiful home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in Cashiers and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We came to Cashiers to attend my brothers wedding and the location of the home was perfect, just 5 miles to downtown and 2 miles to the venue. Other family stayed in Bear Lake Reserve and were disappointed in the location and difficult drive. Others stayed downtown and spent the same for a single room hotel. We had everything we needed, a well equipped home with all the bells and whistles. The view was amazing, the beds comfortable, and the home beautifully decorated. My 8 year old cried when we left and my 3 year old just couldn't stop asking "are we going to the beautiful house now?" You won't be disappointed.

All the comforts of home with an Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

I thought the gorgeous pictures advertising this property were too good to be true but that is your actual view from the front porch, living room and dining room. Beautiful mirror like lake surrounded by colorful tree filled mountain backdrop with chipmunks running all around the yard. Home is completely stocked with fresh linens, cookware and spices/condiments, soap, shampoo, toilet paper and extra blankets for cuddling on the couch or enjoying the front porch view. Even offers a ton of board games which we enjoyed playing as a family while listening to their CD player with wall mounted speakers. Great location for your next family get away or ladies retreat. Just bring your hiking boots and toothbrush and a few changes of clothes. Convenient location to Highlands, Cashiers and Franklin which all offer excellent dining out and shopping and of course there are lots of waterfalls in the area to explore and enjoy as well. You definitely need to arrive during daylight hours as the roads are not well marked in this little mountain town, but if you just follow the arrival instructions the homeowner will send you there will be no problem checking in.

Absolutely marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

Took the family with our 3 teenagers and had one of the best vacations yet. We travel to NC often and try to explore different locations within the mountains. This location was one of the best for my love and the kids. Very spacious home with all the amenities one would need. The view of the lake from the porch was breathtaking each morning we sat down for coffee. The marina right down the road was very convenient and allowed for taking full advantage of the lake and water sports for the kid in us and well, the kids! Highlands was only 25 mins away which gave us plenty to do for some adult time. There is also a lovely man made beach about 1.5 miles away within the same Lake which we found relaxing and convenient. The weather was absolutely refreshing considering the sweltering heat back home in FL. Thank you Marianne for the wonderful hospitality and superb accommodations!

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We are a semi-retire couple and do a considerable amount of travel. When we are going to be a location for 3 or more days we generally stay at VRBO properties and there is always the apprehension “will the property be as advertised?”

This property is better than advertised. The location high above Lake Glenville offers a great view of the lake and is central to day trips to the many surrounding towns, nature trails, waterfalls, and, of course, good restaurants. The cottage is two stories and would have easily accommodated more than just the two of us. It is well laid out and, with the possible exception of a slight overdose of sea-going nick-knacks in what is a lake house the cottage is “homey” comfortably. We were there a week and never tired of eating lunch or dinner on the deck, relaxing in the swing or just looking out over the lake. If you need to stay connected to the home or office there is no reliable AT&T cell service but that can be said about any location in the area and the cottage does have a solid internet connection and the use of a land line that was sufficient for our use. Many properties leave information on “what to do” while in the area and Marianne’s note book is chock full of suggestions of places to go, must see sights, and good restaurants and is spot –on accurate. The short of it is if you are going to visit the Cashiers, Highlands, Lake Glenville, and Western Carolina area and want a great home base for your excursions I doubt you will find a better place than this cottage.
