Overview

About the property

Remodeled lakeside cottage sleeps 6 in 3 king beds with 3 1/2 BA/5 min to Saluda

Did you ever dream of living on a lake? Sitting high on a hill overlooking the lake, Saluda Vista is a place where the quiet serenity of nature surrounds you. Come stay with us and experience it for yourself. Lake Hosea is a small lake surrounded by homes where privacy and space are a given and the only call you answer to is the song of the winds.

Completely renovated in 2015, Saluda Vista is a 1975 contemporary cottage style home. All of the orange carpeting and avocado appliances were replaced with beautiful bamboo flooring and a modern kitchen with GE Slate appliances, quartz countertops, and custom cabinetry. The large counter height dining table seats 8 comfortably, while the luxurious sectional sofa allows families to gather together around the fireplace. The maple of the mantle was handpicked at a local sawmill because of its’ beautiful grain, while a local woodcrafter honed it to a natural rustic finish which enhances the knots and wormholes. The 55” flat screen TV mounted over the mantle has access to Dish Network and Netflix.

Two master bedrooms with en suite baths are located on either side of this main level allowing privacy for two couples or family members.

The first of the masters boasts a king size bed, 40” flat screen TV, walk in closet, and private sitting area.

The bath has a double vanity and full size tub with a marble subway surround and a marble basketweave tile floor. The curved shower rod and the glass block window make the tub feel quite spacious.

The second master bedroom is the “room with a view” as the corner windows look out over Lake Hosea. This bedroom also has a king size bed, seating area, and 32” flat screen TV.

The large walk in shower tiled in travertine and accented with glass mosaic tile is the eye-grabbing feature of this bathroom.

In addition to the huge open concept kitchen/dining/living room (approx. 16'x32') and the two master bedrooms with baths, the main level also has a half bath located right inside the door leading to the 12x36 deck which runs the whole width of the back of the house. With a great view of Lake Hosea, this is “the spot” to host family dinners. Two tables provide dining for 8, while the charcoal grill invites the barbecue master to try his/her hand.

Down the stairs is yet a third bedroom with a king size bed, seating, and a 40 inch flat screen television. The bath right across the hallway features a HUGE walk in shower with a bench and a rainfall shower head.

The laundry room, with full size washer and dryer, occupies the last space on the lower level. With a walk out to a seating area under the deck above, this area also has a nice water view.

A 5 person paddleboat is available for guest use from April through October. We also have lifejackets in a variety of sizes. There is a "little red wagon" which can be loaded up with drinks, lunch, etc...and pulled down to the lake for a picnic.

Be sure to check out our other two properties, Mountain Vista Retreat and Verandah Vista, property IDs 600417 and 949224, and our website. We take great pride in offering "The Best" to our guests.

About Suzanne and Marty Kelly

Suzanne & Marty met & fell in love while working at an Eco-resort on the island of St.John in the US Virgin Islands. After much deliberation about where to make our permanent home ( and even more on where we shouldn't) we decided on the mountains of North Carolina. We moved here after our island wedding in 2004 and have never regretted our decision.

Suzanne and Marty Kelly purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Suzanne and Marty Kelly chose Saluda

We have another vacation rental property, Mountain Vista Retreat, located in Hendersonville, NC. It has been such a success that we decided we would like to have a second property. Our real estate agent actually sent us this listing by mistake, but the fact that the house was on a lake really grabbed out attention. We drove down to take a look at the property and fell in love with the location and the town of Saluda. We knew we were the right people to take this cottage from the 1970's into the next century. After nearly 6 months of renovation work (from November 2014 to May 2015), we are excited to share Saluda Vista with everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

When we first came to look at the property, the quiet was what really grabbed and held our attention. We stood out on the large deck overlooking the lake from above and marveled at the peace we felt. The chirping of birds and the sound of running water held our attention. Ducks came flying from the west and skidded to a landing across the lake. The place just help a magical charm.

Perfect Vacation - Beautiful House and Oh So Clean!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at vacation rentals for many years and I'll have to say Saluda Vista was one of the top homes we have stayed at. The entire rental process was flawless, from the initial contact to Suzanne and Marty, to the instructions they provided regarding the house. The icing on the cake though, super clean home and organized to the max! I loved the organization so much that it inspired me to get organized in my own home. This home lacks nothing - fully furnished with exceptional items, absolutely everything was in working order and the updates to the place (remodel) are fabulous! The bedrooms were finely furnished with high quality beds and bedding. The home was so comfortable and the bird feeder out the kitchen window was a delight to watch! This home will not disappoint!

Incredible home, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this wonderful home. We stay with two other couples and seldom leave this beautiful home. The kitchen is well stocked and the home is very comfortable. We look forward to our next visit.

Quality!

  • 4 of 5

The house was amazing. Everything was the utmost quality-beds, sheets, pillows, towels, the kitchen was well stocked, everything was wonderful. There are screens on all the windows so you can open and let the breeze in. There is provided bird seed for the bird feeder outside the kitchen window-one of my favorite parts! The back deck had cushions for the seats and umbrella to block the rain/sun. I have no complaints about the house. The only thing that is misleading is the lake. Its not right outside your front door, if you want to explore, you have to do some walking. It would be amazing to have steps that lead right to the lake, probably impossible but still. I also assumed the downstairs room had an equal deck but its literally just overgrown vines down there. Maybe just a missed opportunity or just misleading information. Dont get me wrong, this house is amazing, i just think some of the photos pictured give you a different idea of the lake in your front yard.

The hot tub was wonderful, the beds were comfortable, everything was extreme quality! We enjoyed our home away!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Saluda Vista. I wanted to address your comments concerning the fact that you felt like you were misled and expected the lake to be outside your front door. First of all, in the first paragraph of my description of the property, I state that the house sits high on a hill overlooking the lake. I wanted to make sure that our guests realized that the house and the lake were not on the same level. Secondly, in the photos of the property, there is a picture showing the house in relation to the lake. It's not the greatest picture, but again, I wanted to make sure that people realized but the house is not right on the lake, but overlooks it. Technically, at Lake Hosea, there are no houses right on the lake. There is a perimeter road that runs around the entire circumference of the lake. Any houses are on the opposite side of this road, with a couple being down low, but most of them are up on a hill. After all, this is the Foothills to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Fun Birthday Weekend at Saluda Vista

  • 5 of 5

Great property for 3 couples as each bedroom had a bath and well located in the floor plan. House is well appointed with everything that you need. Great directions on where things are located and how to use them. We spent a lot of time on the deck with great views of the lake. Short drive into Saluda which is quaint and small but was a lot of fun. Very nice property that I recommend without reservation. Suzanne made us feel at home!
