The Little Known Lake In North Carolina That’ll Be Your New Favorite Destination

Hiding in a dense rainforest of North Carolina, just eight miles from Cashiers is 26 miles of pristine shoreline, islands perfect a pit stop, three waterfalls, and the highest elevation lake east of the Mississippi. Lake Glenville is a beautiful reservoir with turquoise water, gorgeous scenery, and the perfect spot for every type of outdoor enthusiast.

If you need more reason to visit, Romantic Asheville made a great video exploring the gorgeous lake! It’s almost like being right there.

I’m ready to plan a weekend away here, what about you? Have you visited Lake Glenville before?
