About Craig Shore
We are very blessed grandparents and enjoy Lake Norman so much. I still work as a karaoke host at various locations around the lake area and I dj special events as well. My wife, a former aquatic director with the YMCA, still spends time in the water with private swim lessons and playing with the grandkids. She also loves her animals and volunteers at the local Humane Society when she can. We've enjoyed the lake lifestyle for a long time and look forward to many more years here sharing it with you!
Why Craig Shore chose Lake Norman of Catawba
This property is so peaceful and lovely and yet it is close to so many places to see and things to do and we feel so fortunate to be able to share it with you.
What makes this House unique
Whether you're kayaking on the lake or relaxing on the sprawling porch near a fire and the koi ponds, this is a real home away from home that you can enjoy to your hearts' content.

Relaxing Getaway Retreat with everything you need to be comfortable
Craig and Dorie are very personable and have thought of everything to make their lower level apartment a perfect home away from home for your relaxing vacation. The dock out back is in the cove with McCrary Boat Launch, which was very convenient. Their is a fully functional kitchen, including a fridge with waters waiting for us. We just stayed for the weekend and didn't cook but were happy to have a coffee pot and filters to use! We traveled by boat to all meals. There are several good restaurants you can pull your boat up to and sit on the patio to eat. The kids loved fishing on Craig and Doris's dock and using the kayaks. We had never done this kind of thing before and were not sure what to think about vacationing at someone's home we didn't know. They were respectful to our privacy and didn't enter the apartment during the stay. When we saw them outside they were welcoming and enjoyable to talk to. By the end of the weekend, they were like friends we couldn't wait to come stay with again.
Awesome place !
That was a great place to stay. Very cute, clean and not far away from everything.. We definitely recommend it. The kids loved to try kayak and the sunset was beautiful !
Thanks a lot Craig for being available for all the questions we had ! Will be back :-)
Beautiful downstairs apartment right on the lake.
The owner couldn't have been nicer. The house was clean and newly renovated with all the extras, including waters in the fridge. The front porch facing the lake was perfect for morning coffee. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to visit Lake Norman.

Perfect getaway for playing on lake
Great lakefront location for 2 night getaway for the 2 of us. Very convenient to Queens Landing/CS Rentals for pontoon boat rental. Shade trees keep area very comfortable.
Large closets and plenty of open space. Feels new and very clean
Well furnished kitchen, comfortable couches, very cool for August. Parking is very close to unit's door, short walk to dock. Kayaks and other toys available for swimming off dock. Patio chairs were great for evening beverages and had great lake view.
Dorie and Craig were delightful and very helpful with local information. .
Beautiful spot on the lake!
Craig was lovely and the house was clean and comfortable.
