Description from manager

The ultimate mountain lake escape!

Mountain splendor, old-world craftsmanship, and luxurious surroundings.....this is the place to create memories for a lifetime.

Bishop's Retreat has supplied luxurious accommodations for hundreds of guests over the years, and was newly renovated in 2018 to raise the bar of luxury.

This destination is unmatched!


(Sleeps 13-15) 5 bedroom, 4 full baths, 1 Half baths/Powder Rm

Occupancy Summary / Sleeps in beds: 13 Max. Occupancy: 15

(PLEASE NOTE: Yonder provides linens for all beds; other occupancy will require guests providing their own linens.)


Bishop's Retreat is a spectacular mountain lake vacation home, built for relaxation, with vaulted spaces, upscale finishes, and hard wood floors throughout. The great room, with stone fireplace, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen, is where everyone will want to gather to enjoy their time together while inside. Once outside, enjoy the expansive deck and patio areas, cornhole, or meander down to toss bread crumbs to the fish in the lake. Bishop's Retreat is one of Yonder's most requested vacation rentals, booking years in advance, and is a perfect and popular location for weddings and events.

Come experience a stunning and luxurious lakeside lodge that will melt your worries away, and replace them with an experience of a lifetime.

The expansive, partially covered, deck is just off the great room. Pull up a chair and take in the view of the lake, observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard. Or, meander down to the fire pit to toast some s'mores and share stories.

Bishop's Retreat is also a destination for weddings, and we host quite a few. We can certainly get into much more detail if you are interested, but you could host an outdoor affair with up to 30 people, with tents, etc.

You are just minutes from America's favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity! Or, take a quick ride to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, and entertainment.
