Lake Wylie house description

SWEET RETREAT--When walking into the house, you are immediately drawn to the pine ceilings throughout the main level of the house and the green/blue/tan color scheme of the walls providing that 'beach feeling.' The house is tastefully furnished with keeping the comfort of the guests in mind but providing a more upscale environment.

The house consists of two levels with the main floor having a great room/kitchen and dining/bedroom/walk-in closet/ and 3/4 bath which also houses a stack washer and dryer. The upstairs consists of a bedroom, full bath, and a study with a pull-out sofa for additional sleeping.

The kitchen as a range with double ovens, a full refrigerator with ice-maker, a dishwasher, and a built-in microwave over the stove as well as a full-sized pantry. All dishes, eating utensils, pots and pans, etc. are provided. Also, all paper products are provided for your enjoyment.

The bathrooms come stocked as well. Soap, shampoo, and conditioner are provided along with needed towels. Linens are also provided for all the bedrooms.

Facing the water, you have a covered deck off of the great room. This deck has a table on which you can enjoy an outside meal as well as a swing to enjoy the view of the water. Want to swim? We have a floating dock and a fixed dock. You can swim in the lake or if you rather, you can fish from the dock. Bringing a boat? You can also tie up your boat at the dock so you can go boating whenever you feel the urge. No boat? There is a canoe provided for your enjoyment. There is also a small deck on the side of the house where you can watch the activities on the water as well or cookout and eat a peaceful meal during your stay.

This house is one of the nicest on the lake located in a lakefront community. Nature is all around you with trees on both sides of the house and woods in front of the house. Coming for the view? You have beautiful water views from most rooms on the main level. The beauty of the location of this house is the fact that although retail is very close, this house is located on a dead-end road away from the regular flow of traffic which provides a quiet environment for your stay.

When you leave, you will indeed say, 'What a Sweet Retreat!' Come and visit and see for yourself. Randy and I welcome you to our home.

              Car: Recommended

              This house is located near a variety of activities which are within minutes of the house. Carowinds/Water Park and The US National Whitewater Center are within 15 minutes from 'Sweet Repeat.' Need to catch a plane or pick up friends, the airport is 15 minutes from the house. If you like to shop, there is retail shopping 10 minutes from the house. As of the projected date of July 31, 2014, Tanger Outlets, consisting of 100 shops, will be opening 5 minutes from the house. Other places of interest around the house include the following: Billy Graham Library, Carolinas Aviation Museum, Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, Lazy 5 Ranch, Narroway Theater and Conference Center, etc. Like museums such as Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, Levine Museum of the New South, etc.? Uptown Charlotte where most of the museums are located along with the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the homes of the Bobcats/Panthers is a 20-25 minute ride from the city. Have friends in Tega Cay, Gastonia, Rock Hill, Clover? These localities are easily accessible from the house.

              Because of the location of this house, you can easily get around Charlotte or other small towns/communities in the vicinity. Yet. . . . . . . when you get back to 'Sweet Retreat,' you are in a small lakefront community. Traffic? Very little except for the people living in the community since we are a dead-end road. Enjoy the best of two worlds!
