About the property

Lakefront 5000sqft Newly Renovated & Furnished w/ Hot Tub, Dock, Boat, Billiards


This waterfront home is nestled on the shores of Lake Wylie in Charlotte, NC. It's one of the rare properties on the lake with its’ own sprawling private beach - ideal for young children and families to enjoy. This 5000sqft SINGLE STORY family-style home boasts 6 bedrooms (4 bedrooms w/ King beds & 1 bedroom with 4 double beds) all with their own full bathrooms. Also a separate den with a new queen Pull-out mattress, and two queen size air mattresses if needed. Including a separate crib room in the Master with a crib and a pack'n'play, and high chair. The huge open-concept living room, kitchen dining room, breakfast room, and wet bar is ideal for the big family gathering or event. All making it a wonderful, one-of-a-kind, get-away vacation home for a large and activity seeking family.

I manage another family lakehouse I bought with my brothers in 2013 - please feel free to check it out, it has great reviews! It would be a great option if you have a huge group, event, or reunion to be down the road from each other! The listing number is 565029.

Located just 20 mins from uptown Charlotte, this home is convenient to all the surrounding area has to offer (mall, restaurants, grocery, marina are all less than 5 minutes from the house). Even though you are close to retail shops and malls, you'll escape from the busy world when you drive down our 1/2 mile wooded gravel road that only serves 4 homes.


This house is one of the only lake homes around Charlotte with a Pontoon Boat available to rent for the duration of your stay - No more need to pay $400/day to rent from the Marina only to stress out about getting it back before 4PM to avoid late fees. Boating should be a relaxing and fun experience --- Take the boat out when you want -- not when you are tethered to a reservation that may turn out to be a rainy day. This was the most common request from our renters so that's why I collaborated with a local Commercial Boat Rental company to give you the option to rent the boat at the end of our dock. Our 14 passenger, 24 foot, 115HP Bennington comes fully equipped with life jackets and all the equipment you need to have a fun and safe boating experience! Just ask me in your inquiry if you are interested :) The lake is huge -- full of beautiful houses, on the water restaurants with boat parking (T-Bones!), and tons of cool Sand Bars and islands to hang out on -- EXPLORE IT!


The yard is simply gorgeous with large beautiful trees separating you from any neighbors. Enjoy lunch outside or just watch the kids play on beach from the huge deck overlooking lake. Or turn on the warm café-style lighting and enjoy a glass of wine after the sun sets. Walk past the hammock to a new boat dock perfect for laying out, tanning, fishing, jumping in the lake, or just relaxing and hanging out on the comfy Pontoon Boat... listening to your music on the wireless bluetooth stereo, looking out at the cove. Or wind down the day from the massaging hot tub on the huge porch overlooking the lake with a cold one in your hand!


The bottom level of the home is the huge open-concept family room with lots of seating, including recliners for dad and granddad, and a new 70 inch 4K SmartTV (w/ DVR, Netflix, Premium Movie Channels, a Soundbar, and Subwoofer), a long dining room table, wine fridge, and a FULLY stocked kitchen with dishes, glassware, pot and pans, all large and small appliances, a giant walk-in pantry, a Kuerig 2.0, and a center island with seating. The home features a huge living room, kitchen, and dining area with windows overlooking the large deck and the lake.


There are 6 bedrooms and 6 full baths (including 2 Master Bedroom Suites). All Bedrooms are King beds, except, one bedroom w/ 4 doubles, and one with a Queen pull-out mattress. The 2 Master Bedrooms are incredible - On opposite sides of the house, they have the most amazing lake front views, both with 60' SmartTV's and direct porch access. Grand Master Suite with a gas fireplace, a walk-in closet, a crib room, with a stand-up shower, jetted tub and a heated lamp to keep you warm when you dry from your shower. All of the bedrooms are spacious and private. All towels and linens are provided and washed for you after your stay (guests are welcome to use washer/dryer).


Explore the lake on our 2 stand-up Paddle Boards, 2 sit-in Kayaks, or in our 3 person canoe (just don't forget to wear a life jacket!) We provide 15+ life jackets of all sizes in a deckbox on the dock. We want you to use them!! Be safe out there :) There is a comfy covered patio area right outside the family room complete with seating and a large stainless steel propane grill (be sure to check it when you arrive, if gas runs out - renters are responsible for replacing at any of the nearby grocery and gas stations). The house is equipped with High-speed broadband Wi-Fi internet that works all the way down to the beach. There is a basketball hoop in the driveway and basketballs in the garden courtyard room. The house is equipped with 7 new SmartTV's all over 55 inches. DirectTV with ALL the channels, DVR, including ESPN's, music channels, HBO, Cinemax channels, and internet connection for Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, ect. Or get some relaxing outdoor time and teach your kids how to fish with the 4 full fishing rods, and 2 children's rods with the provided tackle box! You can catch Catfish, Bass, Brim, Crappie, Carp, and Bluegill.

This home has DirectTV (1000+ HD and 4K Channels including HBO, Cinemax, and all ESPN channels) on 5 of the main flat screen TV’s. You can access the high speed wireless internet from anywhere on the property. The TV’s are located in the living room, Kitchen, Two Master Bedrooms, Billiards room, Game Room, and the rear bedroom. We provide an "old school" SNES and N64 video consoles & games, and tons of popular card and the old school classic board games like Checkers and Chess!

What you'll need to bring:

Paper towels, Toilet paper, Trash bags (tall bags), any beach towels, and PLENTY of sunscreen!

We provide a set of linens and towels for every guest in the house. You are welcome to use the washer and dryer if you would like to (but don't clean your sheets and towels, you're on vacation!).

About David Gaskin

My name is David (33 years old), I'm the co-owner and manager of the house. I'm newly married and work in Commercial Real Estate. I love travelling, football, technology and gadgets, water sports, and experiencing the world! I take pride in my city and state, so I'm always urging people to experience as much of it when they visit from out of town. There are so many cool things to experience in Charlotte - get out there and enjoy it!

David Gaskin purchased this house in 2016

Why David Gaskin chose North Carolina

I own the house with my wife, Casey, and my parents. My parents were looking for a house in Charlotte that they could enjoy with their Grandchildren as they grow up. And we decided to rent it when we are not using it so our family can continue enjoying the beautiful home and unique property.

What makes this house unique

We are one of the only rental properties on the lake that has a pontoon boat conveniently parked at the dock that is available to rent. Our house is only 20 minutes from uptown Charlotte (Close enough that Uber works in our area too!) , and minutes from Carowinds theme park and located in a quiet, secluded cove. We are also very close to the US National Whitewater Center which is one of the coolest attractions in Charlotte in my opinion.

We are also 2 minutes down the road from McDowell Nature Center and Preserve:

By far the BEST choice we could have made for our family reunion/vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time in 14 years that our extended family has been together and we had the most extraordinary time at this gorgeous home. We made memories for a lifetime! This home was even BETTER than we expected! The home is so beautifully decorated, spacious, clean and has everything you can need and more! We planned on doing day trips and activities with our families, but never did. There is no need to ever leave the property... there is so much to do! We had a group of 15 people (8 children and 7 adults) from age 7 up to 76 and everyone was happy! The owner, David, is an amazing host. He was such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. He called me as soon as we booked to go over all the details and was so helpful! The week we stayed at the house he and his wife had their first baby and he was still communicating with us and making sure everything was good! He is eager to please and make changes based on recommendations to make sure everyone has a great time! We loved it so much we are trying to go back next year!!

A great time was had by all

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 had a wonderful vacation on Boyd's Cove. The house was huge with both room for all of us to be together or have some quiet time away from the others. The many water toys were used everyday. We kyaked, canoed, did the standup paddle boards and the pontoon boat was a huge hit. The location was just a short distance from some local attractions that some of the family wanted to take in while in Charlotte. Some of us went to the American Girl Store while others went to Carowinds. Another day some went to the Carolina Panther Stadium and some to the aquarium. The large kitchen with two islands and two refrigerators in the house were perfect for all the cooks in our group. The last evening we enjoyed the largemouth bass my son in law caught in the lake. We have had a family vacation each summer for the last 12 years. We have enjoyed the beach several summers and the mountains a couple times but this was our first time on a lake everyone wants to do another lake week next summer. I chose this house because it was big enough for our whole family and because it was all on one floor for my Mother who was 98 years old. She passed away in February so didn't get to make the trip with us but I'm sure she was looking down with a smile on her face to see her family enjoying precious time together.

Another Fantastic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second family vacation at this really fantastic house on Lake Wylie. The house is spacious, exquisitely furnished and decorated yet is very comfortable for adults, small children, handicapped individuals and pets. David, the owner, has spared no expense re upgrading the landscaping, an upscale, luxurious pontoon boat and gorgeous beach area complete with fantastic chairs, I cannot think of a better vacation spot where we would rather be -close enough to metropolitan offerings and far enough away to be able to enjoy “chilling.”

Beautiful place for our family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Great times during our stay!!! All of us enjoyed the water “toys.” Written instructions on use of TV would be helpful but owner was prompt returning our call - solving all issues. I would recommend this home to all who are looking for a well equipped, beautifully decorated, and comfortable rental.

Wonderful home with great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

12 adults and 2 children had plenty of room in this gorgeous home. We enjoyed the boat everyday and used all the water toys including water skies, tube, wakeboard, kayak and paddle boards. Kitchen had everything we needed- very well stocked. Beds and pillows were so comfortable- now I can’t sleep at home after sleeping there! Beautiful new beach area and plenty of chairs. Very convenient to grocery and other shopping. However there is development going on very near the home but we could not hear any construction noises. We did have to replace the propane and replace batteries in several remotes to TVs and fans to get them to work but that’s minor. Owner. David is very responsive to texts or calls when necessary and that is a real plus in my opinion. He even came by one day to make sure everything was going well. That is rare! We could tell he took pride in the home and wanted us be comfortable. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent this home again if I could get everyone to travel that distance again. One suggestion: get one of those old-school guess books. It would be great to write about our vacation memories while fresh in mind.

Charlotte, NC

Far exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken. I am so impressed with the owner - he is easy to communicate with and he did an exceptional job with this property. The home interior is beautiful, spacious, clean, and well-cared for, as is the exterior, down to the life vests and water toys. The new landscaping, which includes stone steps down into the water, a raised white sand sunning area, new concrete walkways, and a tanning deck attached to the floating dock makes the property even better than the photos depict. The wildlife is abundant and entertaining. We particularly enjoyed the heron who spread his wings and sunned himself on the pontoon, the big box turtle who crossed the side yard every morning, and the rooster across the cove who crowed most afternoons. Also, there is plenty of fun stuff to do at the house what with the billiards table, nintendo, hot tub, etc, but by all means, rent the pontoon if you can!! It provided a whole other level of fun with wake boarding, skiing, tubing, and sunset cruising. Such a great experience in every way! Everyone was super sad to leave!
