Enjoy a full complement of exercise and entertainment equipment including both adult and child sized pool tables and ping pong; air hockey; fussball; rowing machine/weights/bench and TRX straps; treadmill; outside children's playground; 15' covered swim spa (winterized between November and April but available over the winter at extra charge); 14' trampoline; basketball, two paddle boards; kids kayak; fishing canoe and fishing kayak; fishing equipment; toys and board games; gas and stone grills, six person outdoor deck dining set, and much more. The adjoining lot is fenced and accessible by private gate from the paved road and by groomed path adjacent to the Aerie Retreat. It offers a large, flat grassy entertainment area, picnic table and fire ring with spectacular views of Lake Glenville and the Smokies, a partially covered meditation deck and fire pit with similar views, private gated parking for one 25'-30 RV, 30 AMP power, water hook-up and WiFi but no other support facilities. The Aerie Retreat resort comes with two boat access to the GreyCliff docks on Lake Glenville. Numerous trout streams and lake fishing abound. Rent a pontoon boat at nearby Signal Ridge Marina. A sand beach is just down the road on Pine Creek by the dam. Just 15 minutes to Cashiers; 25 minutes to Highlands and 45 minutes to Brevard and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is high elevation Blue Ridge country where the temperature is routinely 15-20 degrees cooler than Atlanta, Greenville and the other lowlands. The air is clean and the neighborhood is uncrowded - no structures can even be seen from the Aerie Retreat or its adjacent hideaway. Lake Glenville is the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi, family and water-sport friendly. Photos cannot do justice to the beautiful mountain views. Nearby Cashiers has very good restaurants and shops and a modern Ingles supermarket. If you get Big Box fever, the Franklin Walmart is only 30 minutes down the mountain; if upscale shopping is your bag, the Highlands emporiums are less than half an hour. This is everything a high mountain retreat should be. And more. The Aerie Retreat is not a 'business' rental or a mountain party crash pad, but our home in the mountains that we occasionally rent for family reunions, retreats or meditation. Guests of the Aerie Retreat lodge will have sole access to the facilities on the adjacent lot unless it is occupied. Any inquiries about booking the Retreats should include some information about the proposed booking party, numbers and ages of guests, purpose of visit and interest in securing exclusive access to the compound. A Rental Agreement must be signed before arrival. Absolutely no smoking inside the Aerie Retreat. Well-behaved pets considered on a case by case basis. Absolutely no dumping of any kind is allowed Reasonable advance notice is generally required because of the cleaning and preparation logistics. More

About the neighborhood
GreyCliff is technically a 'subdivision,' but there are only 6 houses that have been built. Guests should be aware of the obvious fact that, notwithstanding the availability of modern conveniences, the Retreat is in the mountains, the woods and the country and the area is populated by the usual N.C. array of animals, rodents, birds, bees, snakes and bugs. A sunning copperhead has been spotted on the property (with no adverse result). The occasional bear finds it way up there. Attention should be paid at all times to small children and to the presence of local fauna, as well as the steeper parts of the property and the somewhat irregular exterior stairs.
