Default Best Lake - James, Rhodhiss, Hickory, Kerr Scott

I am seriously looking at lakefront property (or a cheap lakefront home) in one of these lakes. My main concerns are:

- consistent water levels (I have no use for a lakehouse with a dock sitting on mud)
- water clarity (not interested in swimming in mud)
- peaceful - no problem with a popular lake, but want to avoid being too crowded to really enjoy on weekends)
- a restaurant or bar that I can take to boat to would be awesome
- not stupid expensive - not looking to spend huge money (200k on lot or 400k on house)

this would be a vacation property, so no concerns over school or anything like that. Haven't been out to visit these lakes in detail yet, so any advice would be great.
thanks,

Lake James wins hands down, BUT it won't fit your budget I'm afraid

So I'd go with Kerr Scott near Wilkesboro

Lake James is wonderful! There is a new 3000-acre addition to Lake James State Park opening in the spring.
