  • Great place to take a family to get away from it all

    "We had stayed in another house before, but it was already rented this year. I am glad it was. The house has a great layout so every room can see across the lake. We had a group of teens from 16 to 18, and they had a great time. They swam, jumped from the top of the boat house, kayaked over to the island and hung fishing lines. (Caught several big catfish) We rented a boat and it didn't matter which way the wind was blowing there was a calm area either in front of the house or around the corner in the creek. The owners were great to deal with and sent very detailed instructions about everything we would need and how to find it. The house was clean and well maintained. The dock area is a great place to spend the day. They tiki bar has a fridge and stereo. I would highly recommend this place and would certainly stay again."

  • Beautiful, new cabin in developing property

    "I stayed in one of six rental cabins for 4 days in January. The unit is beautifully appointed in a natural setting, close to town. It was very cold during my stay so I didn't have the opportunity to use the back porch but it was lovely, overlooking a nicely wooded area. I was very comfortable here, received excellent service, and will stay again when the opportunity arises. Highly recommended for individuals and couples."

  • Excellent - feels like home away from home

    "My daughter and I stayed at Mark's place on our way down to Emory University. After a long drive, we were met with a wonderful resting place. Mark is the best host and his place is immaculate, beautifully designed and decorated. The pictures don't even do this place justice! We enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting on the porch overlooking the Lake, the excellent recommendations for places to dine and the friendliness of all three of Mark's dogs. I think the highlight was the boat ride on Lake Norman at the end of the day. It made our 3 day stay perfection! Thanks Mark for a memorable time and we'll see you in the Spring!"

  • Seriously the Best Family Vacation Ever

    "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!"
