  • Perfect setting for wedding weekend

    "My husband and I stayed at the lodge for our wedding weekend and hosted our rehearsal dinner there. The property is an architectural wonder, the setting is gorgeous, and the property is so big and varied that it just absorbs people. Our guests were able to spread out wherever they felt comfortable - the pool, the several patios, the great room, and the entertainment cave. It was also a perfect place for the wedding party to stay and have fun before and after-wedding bonding all weekend. Many of our guests commented on how special and perfect the setting was, and how at-home they all felt. I had eventually had to send people away because no one wanted to leave! Anne was also incredibly responsive, helpful, and gracious, offering great advice and recommendations, and being extremely generous in allowing us to stay extra time. I highly recommend this property for parties, reunions, any occasion where you can get enough people together to enjoy it!"

  • Cozy Cottage in Sherrills Ford

    "Our week on Lake Norman was awesome despite the not so perfect weather. The cottage is both comfortable and eclectic like the owners John and Carole. They were both very hospitable and helpful during our stay. It provides all of the comforts of home with an awesome view of the Lake from the screened back porch. It is also convenient to all that Mooresville has to offer. We tried to book the property again for a trip we are planning in late March 2015 but unfortunately it was not available for our week. We definitely recommend it to all who are looking for a peaceful getaway on Lake Norman."

  • Great House for a Golf Trip

    "Our group of 10 men stayed here for a golf trip and the house was ideal. We have been using Clubhouse Properties to set up our golf trips for years and this is the first time we stayed at this house. It has a nice kitchen, a huge den area with a nice TV and pool table, and a very nice deck for the after round cigars and beverages. Could not ask for anything more."

Heartland Travel Tips

North Carolina Heartland Vacation Rentals Offer Diversity

The heart of North Carolina is neither mountainous nor along the shores of the Atlantic. However, for guests of North Carolina Heartland vacation rentals, there are many experiences just waiting for them. Whether you are in one of the cities such as Charlotte, Raleigh or Greensboro or the smaller communities of Lake Norman, Mount Airy or Southern Pines, you will find the perfect accommodations. The available vacation rentals feature luxury homes, cozy lakeside cabins or ultra modern condos. The main things you will find in all of these great listings at VRBO are comfort and amenities that you just cannot duplicate in a five-star hotel. You will enjoy a spacious living area, a fully equipped kitchen for sumptuous dining, and plush mattresses for a great night’s sleep.

A Huge Array of Things to do From North Carolina Heartland Lodging

If you choose to stay in a Charlotte vacation rental, you can visit Carowinds amusement park which is about 10 miles from the heart of the city. They offer thrilling rides, a pretty setting and plenty of food. NASCAR fans can go to the races at Lowes Speedway or guests of VRBO vacation rentals can play a round of golf at Southern Pines’ Pinehurst Golf Course. You can relax around the house with views of magnolia trees and North Carolina wildlife while enjoying an after-golfing cocktail on your private deck.

The lake area of North Carolina’s heartland offers many different types of watersports. Your North Carolina lodging might be a boater’s paradise with a boat slip for your own boat. Your fully furnished condo or lake house will present you with an opportunity to have breakfast on your patio or entertain with a small dinner party. Many of the lake houses have their own BBQ grills so you can cook your fresh fish that you caught in the afternoon. You will also find that some of the North Carolina Heartland homes offer swimming pools in the community in which they are located as well as fitness rooms, walking paths or tennis courts.

Shopping and Dining by North Carolina Heartland Lake Houses

There will be many places to dine when you stay in North Carolina vacation rentals. If you choose to stay in the larger cities, you can find five-star dining establishments. The areas around Southern Pines, although smaller in population, will also offer gourmet delights from many of the restaurants. The lake areas will have small mom-and-pop diners, restaurants and bistros. The food will always be fresh and you might even have the chance to delight in fresh seafood and fish from the Outer Banks area. It is only a few hours’ drive from the coastal areas of North Carolina so these delicacies are not out of the question. One thing you should not miss when you are in the state is southern BBQ. Southern BBQ is pulled pork in a vinegar-type sauce served with hush puppies, little new potatoes and coleslaw, and then you wash it down with sweet tea. Ask your vacation rental host where you can find the best BBQ in their area and savor the flavor.

Shopping will span the big malls that are abundant in the cities with stores like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and other department and designer boutiques. If you wish to find North Carolina crafts, look to the lake areas and smaller towns. Mount Airy was the inspiration for The Andy Griffith Show so a vacation in Mount Airy will be like coming home to Mayberry. A log cabin with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains could be yours when you stay and shop in Mount Airy.

Getting to Your North Carolina Heartland Homes

The city of Charlotte is the hub of US Airways and there are many flights within the state of North Carolina that can get you to your vacation rental. You can fly into Raleigh or Greensboro as well and rent a car to get you to your delightful lodging. Interstate 40 is the main road through the state and from there, you can take smaller roads to reach your North Carolina heartland home or cabin in the woods. A car is recommended so that you can take advantage of everything the heartland area has to offer.
