Moss Lake house description

Great house, gorgeous location! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, near historic Shelby and Kings Mountain, NC. We have 5 acres of rolling hills and hardwood forest, directly on 400' of waterfront. Plenty of space to let the kids and pets run around! Only 45 minutes from Charlotte, but worlds away from the hustle and bustle.

Moss Lake is a quiet, spring-fed lake that is very clean (it’s the primary water supply for Kings Mountain) where you can canoe, fish, water ski and jet ski without the mayhem of other lakes near Charlotte. Close to Kings Mountain, Historic Shelby, Crowders Mountain, Schiele Museum, golf courses AND other attractions - there is plenty to do if you want to get out and about.

The waterfront includes a large private dock with mooring cleats, only a few minutes from a public landing so getting your boat there is a breeze! With state-record bass, it’s perfect for early morning anglers; with stunning views, it’s perfect for a sunset canoe ride. Or, kick into high gear with your jet ski or power boat. Whatever your pleasure, you’ll enjoy your water sports away from the crowds for a relaxing and fun experience.

On the property is a charming farmhouse with two bedrooms and one bath specifically set up for accommodating and entertaining large groups (owners have 5 kids, who all bring their friends for overnight sleep-overs!) With a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom, two sets of bunk beds in the other bedroom, as well as a futon and pullout sofa in the great room - which all mean you can sleep up to 10 comfortably. Includes newly renovated modern kitchen, washer/dryer, new water heater, A/C, etc. HDTV with DVD player, WiFi, and a bunch of popular movies for your use. We even have a closet full of books, puzzles and board games if the kids ever wear out from all the fun in the sun.

Check out the 'Link to more information' below for lots of pictures and more info on the home, the lake, and stuff to do in Shelby and Kings Mountain.

This is truly a 'hidden gem' we are renting out again this year - discover it, and love it like we do!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS HOUSE WAS FULLY BOOKED FOR SUMMER 2013 BY APRIL - PLEASE BOOK EARLY FOR SUMMER 2014, THANK YOU!
