“I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore…
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.”
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

For centuries, families have been drawn to lakeside resorts all along the Eastern United States. Some have answered the lake’s call year after year, unable to resist the promise of long lazy days by her shores or afternoons filled with adventure out on her waters. There is perhaps no sight more stirring than the setting sun over a mountain lake – it is a symphony of color and light, as the clouds, mountains and trees fight to show their reflection in the glassy surface until nightfall when the stars make it difficult to determine where the Earth ends and the Heavens begin. Poets and painters have long struggled to illustrate through words and art the draw and beauty of a lake – it is something you must see, must experience yourself to truly understand. Many fall so deeply in love with the feel of their feet dangling over a lakeside dock, the ongoing struggle to perfect their technique of skipping stones, and the tranquil sight of the sunrise over water that they move here – either year-round or seasonally.

Lake Glenville

Arguably one of the most beautiful lakes in North Carolina, Lake Glenville offers its fair share of glorious scenery and prestigious communities. With a surface area of over 1,400 acres and 26 miles of shoreline, Lake Glenville draws visitors from all over the Southeast to its pristine waters and glorious scenery. Set at an elevation of 3,492 feet above sea level, Lake Glenville has the distinction of being the highest lake east of the Mississippi – a perk that provides pleasant climates year round, as well as incredible views of the lake, mountains, forest and waterfalls that are common in the region. Lake Glenville is located in close proximity to the historic resort village of Cashiers, providing its residents with an opportunity to shop and dine to their heart’s content. Homes on Lake Glenville provide the best of both worlds – waterfront home combined with mountain home. A handful of Glenville communities provide a country club environment, all of which celebrate the natural beauty of the region. Whether fishing, boating or swimming in this extraordinary lake, once you set foot in Lake Glenville, gently stirring her glassy surface, you’ll feel a stirring in your own heart. This feeling keeps visitors returning year after year, as they continue to build upon their special memories of days spent at the lake. This summer, Silver Creek Real Estate Group invites you and your family to join them.

Silver Creek’s brokers are resident authorities on luxury lakefront homes.  Our seasoned brokers highly recommend the following lakeside communities and subdivisions:

Glenshore – One of the more established lakefront subdivisions on Lake Glenville, Glenshore is a gated community featuring some of the most beautiful multi-million dollar homes in the area.

Trillium Links & Lake Club – True to its credo – “Where Families Belong” – Trillium is among the most exciting, family-friendly properties on the lake. Striking homes featuring Arts and Crafts and Adirondack style architecture line the community’s streets, showcasing special characteristics such as stone and timber accents, poplar bark siding and exposed beams. Each home is designed to exist in harmony with the awesome show of nature that can be found throughout Trillium. The award-winning 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Morris Hatalsky, is as challenging as it is beautiful. Clinics and private lessons are available with the full-time pro on site. The less challenging par three Garden Golf course is a terrific amenity the entire family can enjoy without the worry of tee times and scorecards. A day of fishing in any one of Trillium’s stocked ponds, picnicking at the Lakeside Pavilion or playing a game of croquet on the Arbor Lawn will bring new meaning to the word “carefree.”

Trillium Entrance

Set at the heart of the community, Trillium’s clubhouse is an architectural masterpiece, combining mountain laurel accents with dry stacked stoned for an inspired gathering place that gives the feel of luxury housed within an old, rustic lodge. The clubhouse is an integral part of life at Trillium, offering residents casual dining in the Grille Room overlooking the 18th fairway, a wrap-around porch for world-class dining with a view and an expansive lawn for hosting special community events on holidays like Easter, Fourth of July and Labor Day. Gourmet dining is also available at The Landings, set at the tip of Lake Glenville, with opportunities for a romantic view of the sunset and dinner by candlelight.
Apple Orchard Park is Trillium’s wildly popular fitness and wellness center, boasting three indoor clay tennis courts and state-of-the-art fitness equipment, as well as services like fitness classes and spa treatments. Trillium has a fleet of boats available for rental – canoes, kayaks, fishing boats, deck boats, runabouts and pontoons. Water ski equipment and other water sport items are also available to rent. A short drive to nearby Cashiers provides family members with a fun-filled day of shopping and strolling the streets of an historic resort village. There is no shortage to the number of adventures a family can have while living at Trillium.
