Bear Lake Reserve

Thursday, July 14, 2011

5 years ago I was working for Centex Destination Properties. We were involved in building a new
resort in Tuckaseegee {halfway between Cashiers and Sylva}. It is a fantastic 2100 acre property
set on Bear Lake.  

The Clubhouse is what I am most proud of.    

The main level houses the lobby, a restaurant, private dining room, kitchen,
great room with a fireplace, bar and offices.
This is the Great Room:

On the other side of the dual fireplace is the bar.

We worked to infuse the rustic elements of the property with a contemporary edge. Notice the wooden
barstools upholstered with embossed leather and finished with nail head trim, metal custom-wrapped
fireplace etched with an acid stain, reclaimed wood floors, and glass tiles laid horizontally in the backsplash

I so wish that I was present during this photo shoot. It needs props and flowers so badly!   

On the other side, is the restaurant. The wall of glass doors to the left, slide open to extend the dining
area onto the porch, overlooking the pool. 

Behind this dual fireplace and folding doors is the private dining room.

It is a secluded, smaller, more intimate dining area.

Downstairs is the lounge area.  

The doors in the back left corner lead to the library.

 What we don't do for our clients, right?} 

There are wonderful outdoor fireplaces to enjoy.

After the completion of the Clubhouse, I moved on to design the Mountain Lodges {below} which
are located just above the Clubhouse.

It really is a beautiful resort. If you are interested in visiting or finding out more about
what they have to offer, then jump over to their website.

It's been a Bear of a week...

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Not a lot of posts this week.
I don't know about you, but, the month of May is always, without fail, the craziest, busiest, time
of the year for our family. It's this: kids 'end of school' sports banquets, academic banquets, 
little league games, the reopening of all the amenities at my husbands resort, Prom, the High
School Musical, and son's birthday, combined with this: an overwhelming amount of new clients 
{Spring Fever = new home remodels}.    


I thought this was an incredibly fitting husband snapped this yesterday while leaving his
Balsam Mountain Preserve.This is just one of many bears {their are also lots of cubs!}
that my husband gets to enjoy everyday while driving the property. 

So, bear with me, please! One week down and counting!!
