Property description

Do you long for those days when you went to the Lake and spent time with your family? When you walk into Griff's Place, you feel the positive vibes of the many wonderful experiences of those who have visited this home in years past.

This is a place to relax and forget work and enjoy the water and the wildlife (during the day, you will both hear and see the Eagles that live nearby). At the end of the day, you can enjoy the sunset over the water and watch the watercraft go by. Even better, bring your boat and enjoy the use of our dock. Although you are in an established lake neighborhood, when you turn to go to Griff's Place, you leave the hustle and bustle of the busy world as you drive through a heavy wooded canopy to the lake. You feel like you are entering another world when the world's pace was a lot slower yet you are just a few miles from the city and its entertainment. At Griff's Place, you can enjoy the best of all worlds.

This house consists of two large bedrooms and a full bath on the upper level and the lower level has a greatroom/kitchen/dining combo with a 1/2 bath for a combination of 1200 square feet of livable space. Patio doors present a view of the lake from all the bedrooms and from the greatroom comb. To further enhance your enjoyment of the water views from the bedroom, you can walk out on the deck. From the greatroom combo, you can walk out of the patio and sit and enjoy a view of the lake while enjoying breakfast or you can swing on the provided 2-man swing or just lay in the hammock and read a good book. You can bring your own boat and tie up at the dock, but if you don't have a boat, I provide a 4-man paddle boat and a dinghy with a trolling motor!

Below are exerpts from the notes written in the diary at Griff's Place:

' We absolutely love this cabin-perfect space for a relaxing break.'

' What a gem! We could not have found a better place to enjoy a relaxing weekend. Your home is so welcoming and immaculate! We really enjoyed the bikes and watching the beautiful sunset. Our stay was perfect!'

'This place is awesome! Wonderful way to relax and unwind. The view is spectacular with all the comforts of home. We cannot wait to come back--again & again.'

'Sweet! Two weeks here has brought transquility back to my life.'

'Thank you so much for sharing this great place with me. I don't want to leave but looking so forward to coming back.'

Come and visit 'Griff's Place' where you can slow down and just enjoy the water and nature around you, but when you want to enjoy the sights of Charlotte, you are just a couple of miles from easy access of the city. Randy and I look forward to meeting you and having you stay in our home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Randy, my husband, was in the military for over 42 years and since he has retired, he has operated his own boat repair business on Lake Wylie. I was an educator with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System for over 30 years. After I retired, I decided to start renting my two homes on Lake Wylie and got into the vacation rental business. I am the person who emails you and talks to you via the telephone. I am also the person who cleans your home (along with a friend), makes sure everything is ready for your visit, and is there to greet you at your arrival. Randy and I consider all our guests to be special and are there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Wylie:
When Randy and I bought this house, we immediately noticed the good 'vives' of the house. You could picture the families of times past in the house eating together with the children running in and out the doors playing with one another. When I go over to Griff's Place, I always have felt at peace and so close to nature and God--I wanted to share this with others. With the hard economy we are facing, I hope this house will bring peace and happiness to those who visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
-The location of the house makes it easy and quick to access Charlotte and nearby towns. You are within 5 minutes from the outlet mall yet when you turn to come into Griff's, you are on a dead end road with little traffic. Once you turn off this road to go to the house, you experience serenity surrounded by woods and the lake. -Everything is provided that you will need for a stay. Forgot your toothbrush, don't worry, I have extra. -Beautiful views of the lake from every room of the home. -Even though you are in a lake community, you are within ten minutes of retail businesses and less than two miles from Interstate 485 which connects to Interstates 85 and 77. -Don't own a boat or can't afford to rent a boat, I provide a 4-man paddle boat and a dinghy with a trolling motor. The location of the house is so serene but within minutes you can be shopping or on Interstate 485. The house is furnished so it feels just like home but . . .Better!
