About Jo Hart
I live in Atlanta and take advantage of every opportunity to come up to my beloved Lakewood Lodge. My home is typically booked more than half of the year, most often by repeat guests. In fact, I've become friends with many guests who've stayed with me for many years. I'm a Private Banker and work for a regional bank in the Private Wealth Management area. I enjoy working out (yes, at the gym), church ministries and volunteer activities.
Jo Hart purchased this House in 2002
Why Jo Hart chose Cullowhee
It was truly "love at first sight'" the first time I drove through this area on a trip. The natural beauty was awe-inspiring, and I vowed then to live in this "heaven on earth" someday. After receiving the Grand Opening announcement from Trillium in 1997, I jumped on the chance to come up. I was impressed with the award-winning community design, the extensive Trillium amenities and the integrity of the developer. My lot was specifically selected due to its awesome year-round lake views and the privacy afforded by the private island opposite the lot. I built my home high on the lot to best take advantage of the lake and mountain views. I love the feeling of being in a tree house when I sit on the decks. My custom home was designed especially with rental guests and friends & family in mind. The bedrooms all have their own baths and are separated from each other for privacy. The Lover Level is an independent "suite'"of rooms, complete with full Kitchen, Living, Dining and two Bedrooms. This allows me to have guests and my own privacy too - the best of both worlds! The furnishings were selected with the help of a local designer. I've enjoyed the many rental guests over the years. Please see the Guest Reviews and you'll see why.
What makes this House unique
You'll love the local Cashiers area outdoor activities such as hiking Whiteside Mountain or the many waterfall trails and, of course, paddling on Lake Glenville. The fabulous Trillium Fitness Center is used almost every day I'm up here. The views are much lovelier than my gym at home! I particularly enjoy sharing my wonderful home with family and friends. They especially love the Golf & Fishing, and the nature trails in the neighborhood. I almost always entertain out-of-town guests here. The vast array of amenities and things to do is delightful for any guest.

Jo, we had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. Thanks for all the great communication, and we look forward to another future Cashiers visit in your home! Kenny and Jenny
So glad I was able to help as I always like to be available for any questions you have during your stay.
Jenny, it warmed my heart when you said you loved "every detail" about my home (so do i!)
You're a wonderful couple and I look forward to your next stay!
Property fulfills every expectation for well appointed, quiet and picturesque mountain retreat. Easy access to Cashiers/Highlands restaurants, shopping and fly fishing streams.
So glad you enjoyed my home and the views. Fly fishing should be great when you come back in May!
Beautiful and functional
This home was true to the pictures! Beautiful but very comfortable with all the necessities we needed for a short stay. The fireplace and large porch were both great. The location was a short drive to Cashiers to get groceries and enjoy the shops & restaurants. Jo was accessible and easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again.
I just updated all the photos this year. I know how disappointing it is when the pictures don't match the property! I'm glad you enjoyed all the sights in Cashiers. I do hope you come back soon!
Beautiful decor, home and view. Every amenity you need. So relaxing.Great location for all surrounding towns. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to stay in this home.
So glad you could celebrate your anniversary at Lakewood Lodge.
