With four bedrooms and three full bathrooms this house will comfortably sleep eight to twelve people and offers all of the conveniences of home. Two wood-burning fireplaces offer winter visitors an added benefit.

Nestled in a quiet cove off the main lake, swimming is safe in this no-wake zone and the sandy beach allows small children and even adults a place to wade and play.

Arcade games. Pool table.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a treat to find a home that fit our needs so perfectly! Our 3 sonsand their wives live in Richmond, VA, Charlotte, NC, and Columbia, SC. This was a great meeting place for Christmas! It was well equipped with everything we needed. We did a lot of cooking, had plenty of room, and really appreciated the top of the line appliances...especially the double dishwasher! The view was fantastic. We loved the yard and walking down to the dock and beach(that no one else seemed to have!) But the big surprise was how many fun things were there! It was cold outside but no one cared. The downstairs huge room with the pool table, arcade games for my "boys," we made Christmas ornaments for the tree we brought, and the toddlers couldn't believe there was a big toy box full of fun! (We could have never brought all of that!) We bought some firelogs and sat around upstairs enjoying the fire, Christmas tree, and the movies that were there! Not to mention the good bicycles and stroller! It was also a short drive to Mooresville with plenty of restaurants and we found a wonderful Christmas Eve candlelight service at the beautiful Williamson Chapel United Methodist Church. We had such a great time, I can't even imagine adding swimming, boating, fishing and more! We HAVE to go back!

Great Vacation! This house is a gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time!! The house is absolutely beautiful. We were all in awe! Everything was clean and plenty of room for all of us, the beds were all comfortable too!!! My brother rented the house across the street and we all went back and forth visiting each other, it was wonderful!!! The young adults loved playing pool!! My 5 year old granddaughter loved the swing set and the shallow sandy water by the dock was perfect for her to play in!!!! The dock was awesome! We spent all day sitting and getting some sun and floating in the water!!!! The pontoon boat is beautiful and our boat rides were a highlight, we were all amazed at the beauty of the lake!!!!

Brent had great communication and quick responses helping us get the wifi working and the pontoon boat working!!! Even with him being long distance, he helped get it all taken care of and he could not have been more gracious!!!!

My family plans on renting with Brent again!! I highly recommend this vacation house rental!!!!

Great Honeymoon Hide-A-Way!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome honeymoon! Your house was perfect!! Of all the houses we considered, I’m glad we selected your house. It had everything we needed. It was clean and well equipped. My husband really enjoyed the arcade games and the pool table, he’s a big kid at heart. Excellent location, in a quiet cove. One of the best features, the fire pit. It was so relaxing to sit by the fire at night and enjoy the sounds of nature, so peaceful...exactly what we needed. We rented the boat, and enjoyed every minute of it! Great communication and quick response time from Brent. This was our first time visiting Lake Norman, we will definitely go again. I highly recommend this rental home!

Cute, quiet Lake house with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Great Lakeside house for our family vacation. The weather wasn't great for us, but there were plenty of things to do inside (video games, kids toys, cable TV). We would definitely come back!

Our Dream Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for providing the perfect family vacation home. The home was well equipped and clean. The cove is quiet and private - perfect for all ages to swim and play! We rented the pontoon boat too and enjoyed many adventures on the lake - traveling for lunch, exploring and discovering our own little island with a natural beach. Our week was everything we hoped for and then some!

Just as described. Very nice home.

  • 5 of 5

The house and the location were great. It is on a quiet cul-de-sac and tucked away from the main part of the lake so you do not get any boat traffic. The availability of the boat(s) makes it convenient as you do not have to rent from one of the local boat rental places. The only thing I would add for the owner to consider is room darkening blinds/shades. The bedroom windows only have sheers so a lot of light filters through. Not a show stopper by any stretch but just a recommendation. The only other recommendation would be to have a swim ladder on the dock located near the deeper part of the lake. Those are just minor points and just items to conside. All in all, a great home and we really enjoyed ourselves!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We understand about the curtains but feel if your at the lake why would you want to sleep your day away:-) We will take it into consideration. We have a swim ladder however it has caused issues with the boat being in close proximity. The ladder has been damaged several times byt the boat so we made the decision to not have it there. Its just as convenient to swim around to the beach area to get out of the lake. Thank you so much for your recommendations and for taking the time to write this 5 star review. Brent
