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.
ON-SITE PONTOON BOAT NOW AVAILABLE:
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.

About David Gaskin
My name is David (32 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 Mecklenburg County
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: Check out all that Charlotte has to offer if you are looking for some cool activities during your stay:
Pool / Spa
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Check-in: 3:00 PM
Check-out: 10:30 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. You must contact the owner directly to request cancellation.
Great family reunion spot!
We had a great week at this lovely home, which was spacious enough for our multi- family birthday reunion! The kayaks, paddle boards and pontoon boat were great ways for the adventurous and not so adventurous in our group to enjoy the lake.
Dave was very responsive when we had any questions - he was even able to get someone out very quickly when we had trouble with the internet (local construction cut through a line)!
The pool table/ping pong table were the scene of some intense competitions - followed by some relaxing time in the hot tub! There’s enough here to keep all ages happy-we’d highly recommend it!
Home away from local home~
Two families had an extended President's Day weekend at this great lake home. The layout of the home and amenities were great considering we had rain and cloudiness keeping us mainly indoors one day and then beautiful sunny weather the very next day that had us out boating. The pool table kept the competition inside and the open concept living space was a great place to all be together but enjoy separate space. Kids had a great time in the "game room" and the deck area was nice too where we could all come and go and enjoy the brisk air or sit in the hot tub. Home is well stocked and just feels "homey." Certainly was a "welcomed" feel.
The home is in an excellent location on the lake to access the main channel and the dock is great for fishing and easy to watch over kids from the house and still feel like they can be safely monitored. Basketball and yard playing kept the kids entertained as well.
The home is also an excellent location on land to grocery and other necessities.
The owner is very responsive and easy to work with; we would want to stay here again and enjoy a longer stay.
Great house for a family gathering.
We wanted a place for the whole family to gather for our sons wedding. This house worked perfectly. A wonderful open great room for everyone to gather in. Plenty of seating for meals. And probably the best stocked kitchen we have ever had in a rental. Can’t wait to to come back.
This was the perfect place for our girlfriends' reunion, even in January. This home is spacious, beautifully appointed, and clean. The location is quiet and the view is beautiful. It snowed the first day we were there and was gorgeous. It was like spring after a couple of days. House had everything we needed, including a bathroom for each bedroom, spacious kitchen, beautiful view, lots of seating, lots of large screened televisions, ice maker, wine refrigerator. Good restaurants, grocery stores and shopping nearby. Home owner is very responsive and accommodating. Suggest you make sure you have a map of directions to get there. Street signs are hard to see at night and last road to house is not paved, leading to some doubt about whether you are in the right place. GPS was not able to locate the address. Highly recommend this vacation rental.
Beautiful home, perfect for our family vacation.
By far, this is the best rental we have stayed in. The home was very inviting and comfortable with plenty of space for our large family! If the weather was warmer, we would have loved the outside even more than the inside! Perfect place and can’t wait to stay again!
Great location, convenient to the city but feels like a million miles away
Perfect setting for my leadership team to stay for the week while we were in town for business. Enough room for everyone to have lots of privacy but, GREAT common space for collaborating or just hanging out and relaxing. The nicest finishes of any VRBO I have ever rented.
There are several new shopping centers within 5 minutes of the house. You'll find premium Grocery Stores, Restaurants, Pharmacies, Marine Stores, Coffee Shops, Fast Foods, Pizza Delivery, Spas, Shopping, Target ALL within 5 minutes from the house. There is also a Wal-Mart that is 8 minutes away, a Costco about 15 minutes away, a huge Cabela's Hunting/Fishing Outdoor store about 10 minutes away.
