Best described as a totally private second story single 'stand alone guest chalet ' of approx. 1200 sq.ft. With its own security system and PRIVATE ENTRANCE, it provides total privacy, quiet and solitude. Encompassing the ENTIRE SECOND FLOOR and professionally decorated in exquisite detail for even the most discriminating taste it is sure to be a memorable experience you'll want to tell all your friends about. It is perfect for a couple but by using the aero-bed and/or sofa it would still work well for a couple and a teenager or two.

From the oriental rugs to the double skylights in the great room, bedroom and bath, and everything in between, absolutely no detail is spared. The Great Room features not only two skylights but also a 42' satellite TV with premium movie channels and 68 music channels, DVD/VCR player, stereo, leather sofa, ottoman & chair, ceiling fan, neutral Williamsburg colors, two lake view window box seats and tasteful accessories and artwork throughout.

The bath and bedroom both also feature skylights, built-in bookshelves, a second satellite TV with movie and music channels, DVD/VCR player, tastefull accessories, walk-in closet, and stereo. French Doors in the bedroom open on to a spacious second floor private balcony which overlooks a THREE MILE PANORAMIC SUNSET LAKE VIEW.

The home has a year round lush green lawn courtesy of the underground sprinkler system while a canopy of trees provides shaded outdoor comfort without obstructing the spectacular panoramic lake view. Launch your own boat or Jet Skis at the nearby boat launch ramp or contact one of the many affordable local boat rental companies. After a day on the lake, tie up your boat and jet skis and take a swim or lounge around at the large floating deep water dock.

You can also combine relaxation and fun with the colorful free floats PROVIDED FOR GUEST USE ! Too comfy and mellowed out to swim? Then just relax with a cold one in the shaded hammock area. Don't feel like cooking? Just order from one of the local restaurants that deliver or cate

GUEST TESTIMONIAL:
'Beautiful sunsets & sunrises. It seems unreal that city life is just minutes away. Pictures are truly worth a thousand words. We chose your Gilligan's Island Retreat by your pictures on the net but the reality was even better. You have provided over and above for your guests with all your thoughtful extras. Please do look us up if you ever come to our Island of Kauai. Mahalo !(thank you)'--- DARYL & JULIE CHONG, LOLOA, HAWAII

Lake Norman is a popular year round retreat. It is the largest man made lake in North Carolina with over 32,500 acres and over 520 miles of shoreline. It is 34 miles long and 8 miles wide at its widest point. Every evening you will experience BREATHTAKING WESTERN SUNSET VIEWS in golds, reds and blues, right from the intimacy of your own private balcony.

Nearby attractions are almost too numerous to mention. Within a 5 minute drive is a public boat launch ramp which offers boat and jet ski rentals, QUEEN'S LANDING which offers dinner cruises on the authentic 'CATAWBA QUEEN RIVERBOAT'

Five more minutes and you’re at NASCAR Race City central in Mooresville with most race shops, NASCAR Museum, Dale Earnhardt Enterprises and Museum, Lake Norman Regional Hospital and LOWE'S CORPORATE HEADQUARTERS. From there the CAROWINDS THEME PARK is only another short 30 minute drive. Also within minutes is DUKE POWER STATE PARK which offers hiking, playgrounds, swimming, boating, wildlife zoo and horse back riding.

Sports fans will love Carolina Panthers NFL football, and the many events, classic car shows and NASCAR races at LOWE'S MOTOR SPEEDWAY.


We're sure that this will be the vacation that will be remembered for a lifetime and hope that you will want to take advantage of our sincere wish for you to enjoy a return visit to this private hideaway. Come, Relax and Enjoy this little bit of Carolina Heaven . . .'GILLIGAN'S ISLAND'. Hope to see You Soon
