                            Our family and two dogs spent four relaxing days at this great spot and will certainly re-book. It was a wonderful getaway and Heather was quite helpful in providing information at all times. It was so helpful to find a rental which would allow dogs. Boat and jet ski rentals are available locally and quality varies with marinas.

                            We were spending our family vacation in North Carolina this year. My husband and I are looking to re locate to NC and decided to have our vacation there. The second half of our trip was spent at High Rock Lake. We loved it !!! The cabin was perfect. Our adult daughter and her boyfriend joined us along with our 2 dogs. We enjoyed the use of their canoe and kayak. We only wished we had a boat to explore more of the lake. The hot tub overlooking the lake was awesome as the sun set in the evening. The owners are very nice and answered me back anytime I had a question. I highly recommend this location and accommodations.

                            My wife and I spent a week here along with our college age daughter, her friend and our dog the week of July 13th. I can honestly say, I have never had a vacation where I came back as relaxed as I was after our week stay. The house and location are beautiful. My wife is very particular about cleanliness and she was extremely impressed with how clean Heather maintains the inside of the house, especially with it being rented on a weekly basis. We did venture into Salisbury one afternoon and had a late lunch at Emma's. The food and service was great! We rented a boat one day from the local marina. My only advice would be to make sure you check the boat over good for the proper equipment. We are looking forward to our next stay.

                            We spent Mother's Day weekend (Fri afternoon, Sat, Sun) (3 of us) at Windy Pointe and enjoyed every minute. The house is clean and very comfortable. Lakefront is picturesque from both inside the house and out, where we spent a lot of time on the dock swimming and lounging. When not on the dock we were on the outside deck reading. The firepit was one of our favorite amenities; we built a nice fire with the wood provided and had s'mores until it was so dark we couldn't see. There is wireless internet and while we could sign on, we could never get the browser to load up...oh well...it was destiny, we spent more time talking and playing games that we brought with us. Overall, our experience was excellent. Thanks to Heather!

                            Heather graciously allowed us to have my daughters small wedding at the house. The ceremony was performed on the upper dock deck overlooking the lake and it was absolutely beautiful. The pictures are stunning. The house was just right for the reception and their over night stay. It was clean and well maintained. They enjoyed the sunset, hot tub and fire pit. Heather was great to work with, answering questions and taking measurements for me for the deck decorations to the size of tablecloths we needed. They even offered to remove the sail boat and chairs off the dock to be out of the way. Heather couldn't have been more accommodating. I now want to come back to this beautiful home for a weekend stay for just me and my husband to relax (all alone). Thank you Heather

                            We had a great 3 days at this cabin. The house is nicely decorated, well-maintained and situated on a quiet and beautiful part of High Rock Lake. We loved the hot tub and fire pit. We caught 11 large catfish from the private dock on the first day and nothing much after that. We also enjoyed using the canoe and kayak.The only things that could improve the experience would have been a gas grill and a few extras in the kitchen (more spatulas, strainer, large cutting board, and a large saute pan). The owner was a joy to work with and very accomodating. We hope to visit again when the weather is warmer. Thanks Heather!

                            We rented the lake house for a long weekend. The house sits on a very nice peace of land on High Rock Lake. There were enough beds that we didn't have to share and with the hot tub, fire pit, kayak and canoe there were plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. One of the previous comments mention spiders. There are lots of spider, but primarily grand daddy long legs. Might help to give the outside and the screened in porches a good pressure washing. But there is spider spray in the closet next to the door and it honestly did not affect my enjoyment of the weekend. Our dogs had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the woods and lake shore.. There was a random black dog that stopped by for a visit a couple of days, but he was nice and only stayed for a few minutes. Ultimately we had a great time and enjoyed our visit. We would definitely recommend to others.

                            My husband and I spent a week here in August with our 2 adult daughters and their significant others and our dogs. We had a blast! It was such a great setting - we swam and fished right off the dock (not at the same time, of course) and our 11month old feist-mix dog got her first dose of lake fun. Needless to say we couldn't keep her out of the water. We rented a pontoon boat one day at the nearby marina and jet skis another day and thoroughly enjoyed the lake. We sat on the dock and read books, enjoyed our morning coffee, watched the sunsets with a glass of wine and enjoyed our family time together. The house was perfectly sized for our group and The setting was very peaceful and definitely "in the woods". The views from inside were really good and from the dock, they were awesome. We enoyed watching 2 resident blue herons fish nearby every day and the occasional boaters pass by. We were very sad when it came time to leave and would definitely return for another lake vacation. The owners were great to work with and it was so wonderful not having to haul linens and make beds when arriving and to know there would be staples available. It's little things like this that make the difference on a vacation. Thanks so much to the Owners for sharing their wonderful lake home.

                            The home is beautiful and peaceful, and the view of the lake is stunning. The kitchen had everything we needed and the living area was comfortable. The owners were pretty easy to work with, too. Our only major complaint was that there were tons of spiders. The owners have no control over that, obviously, but the sheer number of spiders prevented us from enjoying the patio, dock and fire pit. Anything outdoors, basically. And a seat on the canoe was broken, so we couldn't putz around the lake. We definitely spent more time inside than we had planned. And one of the owners quickly scooted us out at check-out time - on the dot - because they had another batch of guests coming. We understood they wanted to prepare for their next renters, but we felt like our time as welcomed guests had expired. Overall, a decent trip.

                            Owner response: Yes, the spiders like the woods! We are working on finding an environmentally friendly way of discouraging them from liking the house so much, as this one of the factors that makes the house so peaceful-the natural environment! I'm sorry you couldn't spend time outside-we stayed there a few weekends ago, enjoyed the dock for awesome sunsets, I read my book on the deck off the kitchen and we sat around the campfire at night. As for the canoe, we're so busy cleaning in between renters, I didn't know about that. I wish someone would have said something, as I will now get it fixed. Thank you for mentioning it in the review. I'm also sorry you felt rushed out the door 'after' check out time-when we have back to back renters we need that time to prepare for the next guest.

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: Gray Stout and Heather St. Aubin-Stout, owners and architects, live in Salisbury and enjoy boating and sailing on High Rock Lake with their family and friends.

                          Why the Owner Chose High Rock Lake:
                          We chose to build our lakefront vacation retreat at Mohican Shores at High Rock Lake because of the beauty and privacy of the site, the mountainous setting, the long range views of the lake and the deep, clean water. We also like that it is only 17 miles to Salisbury and 50 miles to Charlotte and Winston-Salem.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Incredible sunsets, swimming, boating, sailing, canoeing and kayaking. Mountain hikes. Building campfires and cooking out after a day on the water. Fun and fellowship with family and friends.
