This quiet, relaxing home is located on Mayo Lake. A floating dock that is perfect for those wanting to bring their boat and our lake home is close to the public launch at Mayo Lake Park. Convenient to Roxboro and many shopping options, as well as restaurants, movie theatre and bowling. A bonus area downstairs with a game room, perfect for the kids and the young at heart! The game room includes a combo ping-pong/pool table, foosball and dart board. There is also a third full bathroom and sleeping futon downstairs for extra space if needed.

Outdoor loving family of five.
Marilyn purchased this House in 2016
Why Marilyn chose Roxboro
We wanted a getaway from our busy lives, but relatively close to home. We love fishing and kayaking.
What makes this House unique
Mayo Lake has a protected shoreline. No permanent docks, limited public access to lake. Quiet area with abundant wildlife viewing, but not far from all the Triangle area has to offer.

Absolutely will be Back!
I stayed with extended family for one week and wish it could have been longer. I especially loved Kayaking in the early morning with the mist coming off the lake. We spent a great deal of time fishing and swimming off the dock. My family loved playing pool and throwing darts in the evenings. We did not come prepared to use the fire pit, but plan to next visit! The house is close to town, but private. Perfect location to "get away from it all." Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. A couple of things to mention, the cell service is poor, just be aware. Also, I recommend the owners purchase a large pot for the kitchen. Other than that, the kitchen has all the essentials for family meals. One evening we went to uptown Roxboro and ate at a place called Heirloom, the food was great!. There is a movie theatre with bowling about 20 minutes away, the kids enjoyed spending a few hours there one afternoon.
Thank you so much for the review. So glad you had fun. You are absolutely right about needing a larger cooking pot! I will get right on it.

exceeded my expectations
This house was a small slice of heaven right on the lake! We came down for a girls trip and all of us were completely blown away. The house was very clean, decorated nicely, and had everything we could need/ask for! We used the floats and the kayaks to enjoy a day on the lake. You do have neighbors but you feel so seculuded! I told my husband I wished I could get him and our dogs and just run away down here to live! I honestly don’t ever think I’ve been somewhere I loved so much. Such an escape from day to day life ! We hope to return soon and make this an annual girls trip destination!
Our first visit to Mayo Lake and will want to return again. We did not even go to the Mayo Lake Park as once we entered the property, we did not want to venture anywhere else. The house was beautiful, comfortable and inviting. It was unseasonably warm for mid May, in the 90s, but with the wonderful breeze from the lake and the shade trees, the weather was perfect. After having coffee on the large beautiful deck, we spent most of the day in the back at the floating dock watching the turtles, herons, and fish jumping and enjoying the peaceful surroundings. We did not kayak or canoe this trip but look forward to that in the future. In the evening we enjoyed the pool table and darts in the basement. So much to see, do and enjoy without leaving the property. Our time ended too quickly but it was a wonderful place to visit and hope to do it all over again.
Thank you so much and I am so glad you enjoyed your visit. Thank you for leaving the home in such wonderful shape. Your welcome back anytime.
Peaceful and Relaxing
This is a fabulous place to stay with a beautiful lake view surrounded by nature. Our family of 5 enjoyed every minute of our visit and plan on returning next summer for a longer stay. There are so many activities that we enjoyed such as lake fishing, swimming, using the canoe and kayak to watch the sunset on the lake, and playing family games of pool, darts, or foosball. We had such a great time and would highly recommended this location to anyone!
This was a well-furnished home set in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the lake. There was plenty of water “toys”, including canoe, kayaks, and floats for everyone to enjoy. There were also plenty of inside activities such as board games, ping pong, and pool. Or, we could relax on the deck, which looked out over the water. We felt right at home from the time we arrived on the property.
