Charlotte house description

'Rosella' is a cottage built on the shores of the beautiful and private Mountain Island Lake. Much of this lake is parklands, wildlife, sanctuaries and properties restricted from development. This home was built in 1952 and has provided decades of lakefront fun and fishing. Years ago the house was divided into two separate apartments. In 2011 we converted the upstairs into a vacation rental. In March 2014 we completely updated the decor. We provide high speed wireless, flat screen TV's, Wii and a state of the art karaoke machine with
thousands of songs, but you can get most of that at a
Holiday Inn. The unique experience you get with a stay here is that little step back in time. It starts when you pull in to the skinny gravel drive and end up at a plain but well kept mid-century home. There are paneled walls
unit a/c and no dishwasher. No subdivision, no pool, no tennis courts. There are only two neighbors. There is a 1 bed room unit below that is also available for rent. Unless you plan on renting both units you should be planning a quiet stay. Prior guests that have most enjoyed Rosella spend much of their time on the screened porch overlooking the lake. Rosella was built right on the lake's shoreline. You are so close to the boats going by you can see right inside them. At night when they cruise by you could truly join in their conversation. The place is very popular and in our few short years leasing it we have had hundreds of guests.
In that time we have learned that Rosella is not for
everyone. We have done our best to accurately describe the 'experience.' If that slow paced step back in time is not what you are looking for you may not enjoy Rosella
If on the other hand, you would like to re live
the way things used to be or experience it for
the first time we don't think you will be disappointed.
7/9/2014 Notice I will continue to try to have
a boat available to rent. A brand new pontoon
did arrive July 15. It does not come
with the apartment but if it is available and
if you qualify to rent it. (go to funtorent.com
search using zip 28214) we will be happy for you to rent it. Expect a price of $120 to $175 per day
depending on when and how long you reserve
it.
We look forward to your arrival,

Bob and Kim

              • This is truly a waterfront cottage that's located just a few feet from the beautiful water's edge. A great ski/ sight seeing boat is available for your private use. Owner lives close by and at your request will take you out and give you a tour of the lake. There are sandy beaches for picnics or camping and a sandbar where all the local boaters gather. Adjacent to the property is a large county owned park that has miles of hiking and wildlife. Believe it or not but all of this is just 15 mins from downtown Charlotte and all the major attractions Charlotte has to offer. ...moreless

              A unique feature to this property is that we have a boat rental company that provides your choice of either a pontoon boat or ski boat right from the dock in front of the house. Please inquire for additional details.

              Please note We are struggling to continue to offer

              the boats. We have had guests that over estimated

              their nautical expertise and have had numerous accidents and mechanical break downs due to inexperience. We will have to have a large deposit

              to secure a boat and please be honest about your

              experience level. I am more than glad to take you

              out and show you the ropes. Boats will be available

              as it is mechanically possible.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1990

              About the owner: We are Bob and Kim and we are lake enthusiast. We own homes on several of the lakes in the area. We presently live on a lake close by and we love this place so much we spend many weekends here.

              Why the Owner Chose Charlotte:
              We lived here at one time and knew we could never part with it. 'Rosella' is not an investment for us. She is part of the family. We know that if you stay here and get to know Mountain Island Lake you will be 'hooked' too.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Many of our guests come to experience the National Whitewater Center. If you come, we strongly suggest you visit there. It's a man made river rapids that you can kayak or do a guided raft run. This is the only man made Olympic qualifying rapids in the country. There is vertical rock climbing, zip lining and a lot more outdoor adventures. If you don't feel quite that adventurous there is a riverside restaurant where you can get a great meal and a glass of wine while you watch crazy people careen down a wall of water and rocks. You can watch with interest rafters trying to save one of their own who has fallen overboard while you nibble some delicious Macho Nachos. There are also summer concerts and island sunset parties. It costs just $5 to park and nothing to visit the center. You can drive from Rosella, park your car, and walk to the river's edge in less than 10 minutes.
