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 separate room/study with a pull-out sofa for additional sleeping and/or cot...sleeping a total of two persons in this room. This room also has a dresser/place to hang clothes.

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. There are no close homes beside you or in front of the property although in a lake-front community.

About the owner: I am a retired educator from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and my husband, Randy, retired from the Air National Guard as a flight engineer on the C130 Cargo Plane.

The Unique Benefits at this House: When walking into this home, you feel nature all around you in most of the ceilings in the house are pine. In the great room, you have a cathedral ceiling (again, pine). The house provides privacy in that the bedrooms are separated (master on main floor with bath and other bedrooms on upper floor with own bath). You can walk from ground level into the house. Going to the water you have two sets of steps or if you rather, you can walk around the house and only have a minimum number of steps.
