Saddle Notch Villa #9 - Bear Lake Reserve
Saddle Notch Villa #9
Nestled in western North Carolina with the Blue Ridge Mountains as its backdrop and Bear Creek Lake as its anchor, Bear Lake Reserve offers an unhurried lifestyle with lavish experiences. Located between Asheville, North Carolina, and the southern village of Cashiers, it’s the ideal place to get away from it all.
The 2,100-acre gated community boasts miles of lake frontage, including a full-service Marina offering motorized and small craft rentals from pontoons to paddleboards. The Marina is nestled at the base of the Lake Club along The Point, a scenic outcrop with stellar mountain and lake views. The 14,000 square foot Lake Club features multiple dining options, pools, hot tubs, a fitness center, private theater, shopping at The Boutique by the Lake, and much more. Bear Lake Reserve enjoys a remarkable 9-hole/par 29 Nicklaus Design golf course equipped with a driving range and putting green, a 9-hole disc golf course, tennis and pickleball courts, as well as numerous hiking and biking trails. Guests will have access to all current amenities that owners have.
Situated on a private cul de sac with unencumbered, long-range exposures of Bear Lake and scenic mountain ridgeline views, Saddlenotch Villa #9 puts a modern spin on a rustic retreat. This nearly 2,500 square foot dwelling has four bedrooms, three and a half baths and comfortably sleeps 10-12 guests. On the main floor, a cathedral ceiling with contrasting wooden beams shelters the open kitchen, dining, and living areas—all with windows peering out to a picturesque mountain-lake setting. Kick back in the living room with friends and family around the 55-inch Apple TV and gas fireplace with ceramic FireStones. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances for cooking flavorsome meals to enjoy while sitting at the island or the large wooden table. French doors open to reveal a covered deck with outdoor dining for up to eight and a sectional sofa, chairs, and coffee table for lounging.
The master bedroom has a king memory foam mattress, Roku TV, and en suite bathroom with dual sinks. Downstairs, you will find three bedrooms: The “Regatta” room has a queen memory foam mattress, Roku TV, en suite bath, and French doors opening to the lower deck with lake and mountain views. The light and airy “Botanical” room has a queen hybrid mattress, Roku TV, and French doors out to the lower deck. It shares a full hall bath with the “Forest” room, which has two full beds (hybrid and memory foam mattresses) and two closets. The bonus theater room has a 65-inch Apple TV, a large sectional sleeper sofa with queen memory foam mattress, and a kids’ teepee tent perfect for reading or planning the next day’s adventures.
This home also features an EV Charging Station via a NEMA 14-50 (50amp) universal outlet for a $50 unlocking fee. A portable charging adapter specific to the vehicle would need to be provided by the renter.
With a wealth of exclusive and exciting amenities, the itinerary for a Bear Lake Reserve vacation is endless no matter the time of year! And should you find yourself lucky enough to be visiting during winter, local ski areas are just 45 minutes away.
