This is NOT your average listing. It is actively managed by us, the owners. We live about 15 mins away and are able to ensure that it continues to be kept clean and fresh and is a welcoming place for folks looking to relax and unwind from the normal day to day stresses. As an artist and a general contractor we have been able to put our own unique mark on the home.
We have been overwhelmed by the response in the last several years at how well the home has been received and are gratified by the large number of repeat guests we have. Take a look at our reviews. We really enjoy keeping it well maintained and providing a place where folks can come and re-connect with family and the parts of their lives that are so easily ignored in the bustle of day to day life.

My parents built this home 50 years ago. We have a boatload of memories here and we invite you now to visit and make your own special memories. It is a lovely, secluded, romantic, cozy waterfront cottage which was extensively and artfully remodeled in early 2007. The bathrooms and kitchen were brought up to current standards. Every year we manage to find new things to update and improve. In 2012 we reworked the storage space under the porch to make it much more attractive and we added an outdoor hot & cold water shower. It is really nice place to clean up and rinse off the lake water. We also added the outdoor fire-pit. In 2013 we pulled up the worn carpet on the porch and my wife painted a pond scene on the floor. Now you can dip your toes in the "pond" while you rock on the porch. We replaced all of the kitchen appliances in 2015. Every room has a water view. The location is convenient to I-77 exits 33 and 36.
The master bedroom has a cathedral ceiling with a treetop view through the skylights over the queen-size bed. Three windows provide an expansive view of the lake. The connecting master bath has a spacious shower, also with a lake view. The screen porch is perfectly suited to catch summer breezes coming off of the lake. It is a perfect place for a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink while watching the sunset.
The interior has been lovingly decorated with original artwork. New hardwood flooring in the common areas. New carpet in the bedrooms. There are two TVs with cable and two DVD players. The kitchen is well equipped.
You will have exclusive use of your own (splinter free) private dock with floating boat slip. The slip has very deep water. The dock is easily seen from the screen porch. You can watch the kids fishing while you are grilling dinner. The dock has both a ladder and steps into the water. Perhaps your biggest challenge may be getting the kids out of the water long enough to eat.
Please check our calendar for availability. We work hard to keep it up to date.
While the home is close to many good restaurants and other attractions, you will feel that you have entered your own private retreat. The shape of the lot means that adjacent houses are more behind rather than next to our house. Privacy and seclusion are the operative words to describe the feel of the house.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We've been married more than 35 years. We were high school sweethearts in Charlotte. We spent almost 20 years in and around NYC and now are thrilled to be back in North Carolina. We really enjoy sharing this house where we have so many memories with folks from all over.
Why the Owner Chose Mooresville, NC, USA:
This house has been in Larry's family for nearly 50 years. It was built in 1967. We both have just tons of memories that are set in this home. We have had a ball updating the home and sharing it with friends and family and guests.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The house has a very secluded feel to it. With over 460' of waterfront and an abundance of trees it is easy to forget that there are other homes around. Yet, it is just moments from Mooresville and the interstate. The screen porch is our absolute favorite feature to the house and sitting on the dock in the early morning with a cup of coffee is THE best way to start the day.
