"The condo is in a great location. It was clean upon my arrival. A few maintenance concerns during my stay but all handled within 24 hours of reporting them to the owner. Owner is friendly and attentive. I would stay again if I am back in this area. I travel with a 5lb dog and this is a pet friendly property with lots of walking areas."

"As a grandmother of seven grandchildren - 6 of them 4 years old and under, I was very apprehensive about going anywhere near any water for a vacation this year. Historically we would have gone to an ocean beach. I let my daughters know how nervous I was about all those little people being around the ocean and one of them suggested a lake house. I have never been to a lake house before. What an enjoyable, relaxing vacation! The little people could play in the water while the adults relaxed on their chairs and very little hands-on was required. The grassy area from the house to the lakefront was so much nicer than all the sand! We played all kinds of games there. There were small fish and a turtle came by one day for entertainment. I caught four fish IN A CHILD'S NET! We played duck-duck goose, croquet, play-doh, magnatiles, scrabble and made homemade ice cream. We rented a pontoon boat one day. We used the kayaks daily and the paddleboat. In addition, the Lake Gaston bird farm with about 100 species of birds and other farm animals is within walking distance. The kids loved it. Farmer Dick was really good with the little ones. The Ward's home was equipped with everything we needed to cook. The setup was great and handled my two daughters' families and I quite nicely. Underneath my bedroom suite is an outdoor "den" with a TV that we never even turned on. We spent most of our time there. The place was incredible. There seriously was nothing that we said, "I wish I would have brought, xxx." Eloise and Rick answered all our questions prior to arrival - they have sliced off a little piece of heaven. We will be back! I have already referred this place and provided contact information for some folks who are excited to check it out!"

"Lake Norman is a perfect halfway point for my family and our family from Pennsylvania, this vacation included 18 of our family and friends. Lakeside Lodge fit us all very comfortably and has that Lodge feel that we were looking for on our lake vacation. We plan to come back in the near future and highly recommend thus beautiful home for all. The owners were great to work with and quick to answer all of my questions!"
