We really enjoyed our recent weekend at The Lake House. The house is lovely with beautiful wood floors. It is comfortably furnished with an open layout which makes it feel spacious. We had plenty of room for family meals and playing games. Each of us had to take a turrn at the air hockey game, but our grandsons ages 6 & 4 especially liked it. We would definitely like to stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Our family of 14 spent our annual lake trip in this magnificent home. The listing is exactly as described. We enjoyed kayaking in the quiet cove, pier fishing, shady afternoons overlooking the lake and beautiful sunsets on the deck. This is a great lot. Close to the lake for elderly family members to watch grand kids playing. Quiet cove with limited boat traffic where kids could play in the water. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your home.

Owner response: Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted to hear your Thanksgiving celebration at our home was so successful. It is a great place for family celebrations of all kinds. We look forward to having you come again!
We took 15 new staff members for a retreat and the house was the perfect location. We had plenty of space in the living room to conduct business, and enough beds to sleep comfortably. It's prime location on the lake made for many relaxing afternoons as well! We would absolutely consider visiting again! And Dave was so easy to work with in planning for the retreat. I highly recommend looking at this house!

LOVED IT! I am a Family and Student Pastor and I was looking for a place to take some of my leadership to really set a vision for our ministry and I found this home after hours of searching online and let me tell you, it was worth the time I spent searching. Dave was very helpful throughout the process and he was always good about answering my calls whenever I needed anything. The home is in great shape and has a beautiful view of the sun setting over the lake. There is a dock that we swam off of because the water looked so inviting. The house can sleep up to 17 people, though we ended up only taking 7. It is tucked away with only two other houses, so you have a lot of privacy. The only think that I will mention is that if you plan on doing a lot of cooking, consider bringing some extra pots. We were fine with what we had, but I would have brought some more to make it more convenient if I had to do it over again. All of my leadership was impressed with the home and I have already recommended this house to others.

Owner response: Thank you for your comments. I would agree the home is beautiful and the setting is both private and restful. I will be adding more cookware for the convenience of larger families/goups that will be staying. Thank you!

Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven on earth with us! What a beautiful and relaxing setting. We were greeted Monday evening with a perfect sunset and the next morning by the great blue herons. We had fun paddling into small coves with the canoe and liked seeing the muskrats swimming around. Even the rain on Wednesday morning provided a pretty view. We saw several new birds at your feeder and marked them with pink tabs in your bird book. Can't wait to come back with my new binoculars and spy on the birds even more!

Why the Owner Chose Mount Gilead:
One hour away from our home in Charlotte, Lake Tillery was an easy escape from the cares of the city and business. After vacationing on Tillery for a couple of years, we found our own Lakeside Retreat! Every time we open the front door and see the lake through the windows, the cares "roll off our shoulders" and we feel a world away. We hope others will enjoy its beauty as well.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some other things we enjoy includes taking the canoe down the cove and exploring the shore line. Also, with our bird feeder in place we have had visits from many of the North Carolina native birds...bring your binoculars. Some of the birds nesting in and around the property are the bald eagle and cranes.
