Great Room | With its vaulted and beamed wood ceiling, massive rock fireplace, and stunning views of the lake, this room is a favorite gathering spot.  On either side of the fireplace are custom built cabinets. Step through the sliding glass doors to the large deck, an ideal spot for grilling, dining and socializing.
Kitchen | Updated in 1997, the well-designed kitchen features a cook top, wall oven, built-in microwave, side-by-side refrigerator, new s/s dishwasher, pantry and breakfast bar open to the dining room.  A larger pantry is located just to the rear of the kitchen in the laundry room.

3 Guest Bedrooms | On the lower floor, three large bedrooms with their own den and bath provide a great refuge for children or guests.
Grounds | With its low maintenance yard and mature landscaping of flowering shrubs, this lake property won’t keep you tied down with yard chores.  You’ll be free to spend more time boating or enjoying spectacular views of the lake from this ideal vantage point.
The Boathouse | Built in 2010, the new cedar shake boathouse has two large boat slips, large storage room, bar, deck, grassy area, and wonderful swim area. Located in the main section of the lake, it is set back from the main boat traffic.
Lake Summit | Covering about 300 acres with around 10 miles of shoreline, Lake Summit is a very special place.  Duke Power generates power from their hydroelectric plant at the eastern end of the lake.  There are just over 250 cottages with boathouses around the lake; most used as summer getaways.  On the western end of the lake and along the headwaters of the Green River, Camp Greystone for girls, Camp Green Cove for girls and Camp Mondamin for boys have a long history as popular summer camps.  The Green River is the main tributary for the lake, and with just one look into the water, you will know why it is called the "Green" River. Residents enjoy power boating, sailing, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, swimming, pontoon cruises and just sitting on the porch taking in the view.
The Location | Lake Summit has long been one of the most desired locations in the mountains.  Just 8 minutes from Flat Rock and 12 minutes to Hendersonville, Lake Summit is centrally located between Greenville, Spartanburg, and Asheville; each just about 35 minutes away.  The Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is an easy 20-minute drive.  The Douglas International Airport in Charlotte airport is a 90-minute drive.
