Charming Cottage on Pristine Lake
We highly recommend the "Nest" with five stars! My husband and I recently escaped the August heat of the RDU area and discovered Lake Summit. Hosts Melinda and Hal met us upon arrival and gave us the tour of the circa 1930's estate in which the "Nest" cottage is nestled into a forested perch overlooking the lake. Our hosts were gracious and helpful in recommending area eateries and sight-seeing. They also provided yummy blueberry bread and coffee! The cottage is charming and delightful....airy, bright, and spotlessly clean. Beautiful stonework, hardwood floors and comfy furnishings....kitchen is fully stocked. We enjoyed our coffee every morning rocking on the wonderful scenic porch. Lake Summit is truly a gem! Pristine water that is crystal clear and cool surrounded by forested mountains....like an Alpine lake hidden between Saluda (charming town) and Flat Rock ( also charming). We loved swimming and relaxing in the boathouse which was fully stocked with floats, and, two kayaks. The kayaks were perfect to explore the quiet coves and discover clear mountain streams running into the lake. We hope to be back soon as the "Nest" provides a peaceful retreat on an incredibly special and spectacular mountain lake! With thanks, Annie & Kelly
