An easy 15 minute drive to Blowing Rock, Lakeshore Retreat is a gorgeous home just a few yards from the lake in the beautiful gated community of Sweetgrass. With paved, flat parking, there is easy access to this four bedroom, three and a half bath home.

From the first step inside, you will fall in love with the view of the lake, lapping just a few yards away from the front deck. A large picture window means you can enjoy both the remote controlled gas-log fireplace, TV, and the ever-changing lake view with Grandfather Mountain behind it. Exposed distressed beams overhead evoke the mountain lodge style. The dining area easily seats 6, with room for several more at the island. In the kitchen, there is a coppered farmhouse style apron sink, live edge dark leathered granite, all stainless appliances including a gas range, a Keurig, and a standard coffee maker. Off of the kitchen is the laundry room with a sink for ease of cleaning up.

The Master King bedroom is off of the living room. It features deck access, the lake view, a Roku TV, and a private bath. In the ensuite bath, there is a custom tiled shower, a large soaking tub, and double vanities. The leathered granite at the vanities matches the counters in the kitchen. There is also a half bath off the entry hallway.

Upstairs is a second living area, great for families to unwind together.  A large sectional invites you to sit and chat or watch a movie. A selection of board games are there for bonding on a quiet afternoon. Three bedrooms are upstairs. There is a second master with a California King bed, the lake view, a TV, and its own custom tiled bath. Two twin beds are in the third bedroom, which could also be put together for a king sized sleeping area. The fourth bedroom has a Queen bed along with a low profile twin over twin bunk bed. Between these two bedrooms is a third full bathroom.

Outside, you'll have plenty to do and see. The deck has plenty of seating for dining al fresco, a woodburning fireplace, and a new grill. The deck leads down to the lawn on the shores of the lake. There is a walking trail that circles the lake, as well as other trails within Sweetgrass. Hike to the other side of the lake and gaze upon Lakeshore Retreat from across the water while you enjoy a picnic at the gazebo on the dam.

Within the neighborhood is Boone Fork Creek, which winds through the middle of Sweetgrass and has been designated as a North Carolina Outstanding Trout Stream.  Just a little ways up the road at the heart of SweetGrass is the 22-acre lake fed by Boone Fork Creek! Bring your own canoes/kayaks and paddles to enjoy this beautiful lake!

Sweetgrass features beautiful mountain vistas, a lake and stream, and miles of pristine mountain trails which are perfect for hiking, riding, and biking.  At Sweetgrass you'll find a mountain playground like no other.  Here, each season brings with it something spectacular. The springtime is ablaze with wildflowers, the summers are filled with warm days and cool nights which are perfect for daytime outdoor adventures and evenings around the firepit, fall's foliage is absolutely stunning, and the snows of winter transform the area into a picturesque winter wonderland. 

Each season is perfect for outdoor recreation, but there is much more to do here than simply enjoy the splendor of nature. There are also a variety of festivals, community events, upscale shops, and gourmet restaurants to enjoy in Blowing Rock. Combining the welcoming mountain living of Lakeshore Retreat, Sweetgrass, and Blowing Rock will enable you to enjoy a lifestyle that is unrivaled by that of any other High Country location.
