Lake James is a 7000 acre, pristine mountain lake, located in western North Carolina. Adjacent to the Blue Ridge Mountains and Linville Gorge, the lake offers sparkling clear water, boating, waterskiing, tubing, sailing, diving, camping, and fishing for largemouth, smallmouth, walleye, crappie, catfish, white bass and bream. A water quality study by the TVA showed the lake water to be the cleanest and purest of any lake they have ever tested. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in the Eastern US, and served as the location for the movies ‘Last of the Mohicans’ and ‘Hunt for Red October.’

This traveler and his party of 2 adults and 4 children were guests in our home for 5 days. When it was time to check out, he presented the complaints he lists in this review and asked for a refund! We hope this review will be considered in that context.

After he submitted his review, he changed his VRBO “profile,” so that this review and previous reviews that he might have submitted cannot be viewed. His traveler rating from other VRBO owners cannot be viewed either. Prior to changing his profile his traveler review was one star.

We take our guests’ comfort and suggestions for improvements seriously and we strive to make each stay as pleasant and trouble free as possible. Each guest has our personal cell phone number, along with 24/7 contact information for our on-site property manager.

Regarding the shower, the shower head is like any shower head, but it is attached to a flexible hose so that it can be removed from its wall mount above the tub, and used down inside the tub, as for use with a child or by a person with limited mobility. Several prior guests have thanked us for that feature. As for the bedroom, one of the twin beds got moved over a little by the cleaners, and just needed to be pushed back a few inches.

As we cleaned up after his departure, we came across a printed itinerary for his stay. It read as follows: Day 1, fishing in the morning, boat lake exploring in the afternoon.
