Where you’ll be

Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, United States

Located 10 minutes from the quaint towns of Waynesville and Maggie Valley both home to great restaurants, craft-breweries, shops and galleries. Lake J is a 200 acre lake surrounded by a 3.8 mile paved walking/biking path. Teeming with wildlife, you’re sure to enjoy seeing our resident Bald Eagles, swans, Canadian geese and duck population. Fishing is allowed on the lake in designated areas (NC fishing license required). Take a quick 25 minute drive east on I-40, and you’ll be in the heart of Asheville where you’ll find The Biltmore Estate, endless excellent dining choices, festivals, breweries and eclectic entertainment. 20 minutes to Cataloochee Ski Area, 15 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway access point, and Bryson City and Cherokee are both a 45 minute scenic drive west. We’re surrounded by amazing hiking trails and waterfalls nestled between the Great Smoky Mountains and The Blue Ridge. Paradise for outdoor enthusiasts!

I grew up in Murfreesboro, TN back when it was a small town. I went to college there and was a commercial lender for a bank until 1989 when I married my dyed-in-the-wool Texan husband and moved to Dallas. I loved my years in Texas...there's truly no place like it, and it does "get in your blood". It's just so dang hot! Being self-employed (and Van semi-retired), we took advantage of the freedom that allows and followed through on a dream we've had for 20+ years. In 2017 we packed it up and moved to the mountains of beautiful Western North Carolina! Call us crazy, but remodeling homes is a hobby for us. Lone Star Retreat is the 5th house we've completely renovated top to bottom since we've been married! I love to dance, laugh out loud and I whistle a lot! I've been told I shouldn't sing along to the radio, but I do it anyway! I believe what comes around, goes around, and that we should all live, and let live. We both enjoy gardening, movies and playing with our beloved pets. We treasure spending time with our three fabulous children and love hosting happy hour with friends on our deck! We love Tex-Mex, sushi, walking around the lake and visiting historical places. I love soul music, Van's a Beatles fan, and we both love meeting new people so Airbnb is a natural for us! Come see us and experience some North Carolina charm and beauty at our Lone Star Retreat!
