Taylorsville house description
Beautiful log home built for vacation accommodation located on Lake Hickory's main channel. The mountain style log home offers over 1700 sq ft of space and sits on a 1 acre lot. You can rest and relax on the front porch swings while watching the sunset over the lake or jump in the action of life down by the water. Natural exterior surroundings are offered with wide open water views.
You can swim, fish, sunbathe or water ski right off the private boat dock and pier. And if you need more adventure, head 45 minutes north to take in some fresh mountain air as you hike or snow ski, depending on the season. You can even enjoy a family fun filled day at Tweetsie Railroad, located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Or you can travel 10 minutes to downtown Hickory (Furniture Central) for great shopping and restaurants. The options are endless so give us a try!
After your full day of excitement you can relax by the fireplace, play a game with your family or sit back and watch a movie. Or you can escape away to room by yourself and snuggle in bed for some quiet reading time. The interior of this home displays beautiful woodwork, a stone accented fireplace, and a warm ambience throughout.

My family (consisting of myself, husband, and adult children) stayed at this wonderful, quiet, clean home while attending a wedding in Hickory. Everything was as listed in the description. Not the easiest to find in the dark, but we made it, with the help of a gps. The beds were comfy, the home clean and easy to find everything we needed. The lake is calm, loved it. We even saw an osprey catch a fish, then a bald eagle tried to take it away! Would recommend!

Great Lake House
Great Lake House
Just spent a weekend at this very nice log home, and we had a very nice time. It is clean, right on the water, and comfortable. Kids had a wonderful time swimming off the dock, and the porch is a wonderful place to just plain relax. Owners very agreeable. I am pretty sure we will be back!

We had so much fun at this lake house. It offers wonderful views all around. From the swings on the porch to the dock by the water. Our kids were able to jump right off the dock as if they were jumping off a diving board and then pulling back up using the ladder. The mornings were so peaceful and evenings were serene with beautiful sunsets. We even went adventuring in the community park one day and then hiking in the nearby mtns of Blowing Rock. Thank you for allowing us to vacation at your home away from home.

Beautiful Relaxing Retreat
Beautiful Relaxing Retreat
We spent last weekend at this property. It was a comfortable and homey retreat by the lake. It is a handbuilt log home with the feel of a cabin in the Northwoods as you sit out on the porch swing watching the sun set over the lake, or sit by the fireplace with an evening glass of whatever you like to drink. You can watch the kids jump off the dock and swim as you sun yourself in the afternoon. We enjoyed making a group meal on the island in the kitchen. You can see the lake out the dining room window. We were outdoors on the porch and talked and watched the sunset while the kids played, and made s'mores after dark. Many vacation houses have a pre-fab white and beige vibe to them, but this property feels like a home. Lake Hickory is a clean and quiet lake and a relaxing get away in a peaceful house on the hill by the lake.

Great Place For A Family Getaway
Great Place For A Family Getaway
We had a great time at this Lake House. The log home was clean and spacious enough for 2 families. The owners were easy to work with and it was simple to get in and out. We brought our Jetskis. There is a really nice public landing right down the road. Lake Hickory is beautiful and this home is located on big water with excellent views. The kids had a great time jumping off the dock and fishing. The shore area/boathouse could use a little clean-up but we didn't mind since the kids swam off the end of the dock. My 11 year old keeps asking to go back. I expect this will not be our only adventure to this property.

Long Weekend with Family
Long Weekend with Family
The description of the house in the ad is right on point. This was a lovely cabin with a comfortable environment. My family was very pleased with the home and the amenities. Our guests ranged from 2 years to 68 years old and there were accomodations for all. There were even toys and books for my daughters - which they were thrilled about. The view from the porch was the highlight of our stay. The morning temperatures were perfect for enjoying coffee and breakfast with serene peacefulness. We look forward to staying there again!!

Why the Owner Chose Taylorsville:
This home has been a place of rest and relaxation in our lives and we are pleased to be able to share it with you. We like to escape the everyday busy life of the city to rejuvenate. And we like to experience the great outdoors with new adventures. Therefore this place is perfectly located on a lake and near the mountains for the many explorations my family endures.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We boat, sunbathe, swim, fish, water ski and snorkel on site. And we hike, snow ski, sled and enjoy the breathtaking views of God's perfect creation of the North Carolina mountains.
