180 degree view of Lake Wylie from the house or available pontoon rental.
Our cabin, Overlook, rests on the main channel of Lake Wylie.
It is the closest proximity to Charlotte of any lake in NC. In 20 minutes you can be downtown and 15 minutes to the airport! There are fabulous restaurants, shopping and other amenities within a 10 minute drive. We have a fully stocked kitchen with all the cookware wine glasses etc that you will need for your stay. The 180 degree lake view oriented due west provides some exquisitely dramatic sunsets. You can relax and unwind while you watch amazing scenery from the patio, the covered porch, hammock or dock.
The house has tongue and grove wood paneling throughout, even on the ceilings of the den and dining room. It has recently been updated, but the original "lake cabin" feel has been kept. It has the feel of privacy and seclusion.
You will love the beach! Perfect for the kids to run around and play in the sand while you watch from the patio or dock. You will have access to a canoe, kayak and stand up paddle board to launch out on an adventure from the beach.
Upon entering, you will find the cabin to be clean and well kept. We take great pride in this! You will have clean sheets, clean kitchen, and house so you won't need to worry about bringing anything but yourself!

About Georgia Hayes
Sarah and I are both natives of Charlotte. We went to rival high schools and then rival colleges before we met after college back in Charlotte. Despite our different views on ACC basketball and football, we both agree on our love for Lake Wylie.I grew up coming to Lake Wylie on the weekends to my parents cabin located very close to Sweetwater. After college I became a General Contractor, renovated their cabin and was able to live there while the renovations took place. (LUCKY ME!) Needless to say- I was hooked! I loved Lake Wylie. I had been looking for a place of my own and jumped at the opportunity when Sweetwater came on the market. The place needed some work, however it had a certain charm that I knew couldn't be passed up. We bought this wonderful cottage, renovated it for a year, and it is now available for rent. We have a wonderful mother, Georgia, who helps us with the management of the property. She gives all of our guests a warm welcome and is here for your accommodations.

The Overlook was a cozy, comfortable for our family to spend Thanksgiving away from home.
We enjoyed our 4-day, 3-night stay at The Overlook on Lake Wylie. It was close to shopping and Charlotte yet located in a tranquil setting on a hill overlooking the lake. The two-bedroom, two-bath small house was perfect for the four of us. The owner, Georgia, was easy to deal with and very responsive. We had issues with the TV and WiFi due to a cable problem, but they were resolved quickly, even on a holiday. It was too cold to enjoy the lake, but the beach and dock were very nice. The kitchen was pretty well-equipped and allowed us to prepare a full Thanksgiving dinner. We would stay here again, although it was a bit pricey over the holiday (>$350/night).
This is the second time to visit this lake cottage. Great, relaxing get away with the girls !!! Beautiful views. Great, easy location. Great price. Will be going again !
Classic rustic lakeside getaway
Wonderful family gathering spot
Picturesque sunset views of Lake Wylie
We really enjoyed our stay. The sunset views from the dock were spectacular! The owners were very good at communicating with us and were extremely responsive. We are already planning our next trip!
Our lovely 3-month stay on Lake Wylie
My husband and I spent 3 wonderful months at Overlook and still found it hard to leave when our time there was over. In fact, we just had to extend our stay an extra 4 days! Whether it was relatively chilly winter days, in front of the fireplace, or warm, sunny evenings, enjoying gorgeous sunsets while sitting on the large deck overlooking the beach and water, we couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. The location, just 30 minutes from uptown Charlotte, was perfect for frequent visits to our son and his family in the city. The generous grounds surrounding the cabin gave our dog room to roam.
The cabin is very well provisioned, down to child-sized life jackets and every necessary kitchen implement. We didn't find anything that we needed that wasn't there for us. If we had, we know our delightful hosts, Georgia and Roger, would have provided it for us in no time. They were always readily available to answer questions. Such warm and welcoming hosts, now our friends, added to the overall pleasure of our time at Overlook. We definitely plan to return for an extended stay next winter!
This was a wonderful couple with a great family in Charlotte. We tremendously enjoyed their stay with us and look forward to their return next winter.
AWESOME LAKE CABIN
This is, in my opinion, a classic "Lake Cabin". From the moment we walked in the front door we felt like we were in a classic lodge or lake cabin.
Great interior; wood everywhere, fireplace, nice living room/dining rooms, nice kitchen and two large bedrooms (both with bathrooms). Really nice.......
But the views from the cabin's many windows are spectacular!! The cabin is actually on a rise overlooking the lake and you can see forever.
Once outside, you will find a "BEACH" down by the water. Yes I said a beach, a private beach to enjoy along with a great dock for fishing and/or boating. We took our dogs out everyday for them to swim in the lake and dig in the sand. Great fun for them and us. I didn't get a chance to fish but I understand it is very good here. Also, the location here is great as there are many places to shop and dine in the general area!!
Thanks for a wonderful time!!
