Davidson cottage description

Cozy waterfront cottage on the Main Channel of Lake Norman. Enjoy the 6-mile view from the dock and boathouse, or unwind in the shaded backyard in a rocking chair, hammock or porch swing. Great for relaxing with family and friends. Fenced yard is perfect for the family dog. Wake up to the sunrise across the water while sipping your coffee on the screened-in porch. Please Note: This property is located in a family-friendly neighborhood and is only available to adults at least 30 years of age and their children and guests. Note to those with Pet Allergies: This vacation property allows pets on occasion (dogs only and with owner approval). No Smoking indoors.
