About the property

Enjoy the use of the dingy, paddleboat, and floatation for your water enjoyment

Do you long for those days when you went to the Lake and spent time with your family? When you walk into Griff's Place, you feel the positive vibes of the many wonderful experiences of those who have visited this home in years past.

This is a place to relax and forget work and enjoy the water and the wildlife (during the day, you will both hear and see the Eagles that live nearby/also a deer family which visits the home quite often). At the end of the day, you can enjoy the sunset over the water and watch the watercraft go by. Even better, bring your boat and enjoy the use of our dock. Although you are in an established lake neighborhood, when you turn to go to Griff's Place, you leave the hustle and bustle of the busy world as you drive through a heavy wooded canopy to the lake. You feel like you are entering another world when the world's pace was a lot slower yet you are just a few miles from the city and its entertainment. In fact, the Premium Outlet Mall is only five minutes away but at the house, you hear only quietness. At Griff's Place, you can enjoy the best of all worlds.

This house consists of two large bedrooms and a full bath on the upper level and the lower level has a greatroom/kitchen/dining combo with a 1/2 bath for a combination of 1200 square feet of livable space. Patio doors present a view of the lake from all the bedrooms and from the greatroom comb. To further enhance your enjoyment of the water views from the bedroom, you can walk out on the deck. From the greatroom combo, you can walk out of the patio and sit and enjoy a view of the lake while enjoying breakfast or you can swing on the provided 2-man swing or just lay in the hammock and read a good book. You can bring your own boat and tie up at the dock, but if you don't have a boat, I provide a 4-man paddle boat and a dinghy with a trolling motor!

Below are exerpts from the notes written in the diary at Griff's Place:

' We absolutely love this cabin-perfect space for a relaxing break.'

' What a gem! We could not have found a better place to enjoy a relaxing weekend. Your home is so welcoming and immaculate! We really enjoyed the bikes and watching the beautiful sunset. Our stay was perfect!'

'This place is awesome! Wonderful way to relax and unwind. The view is spectacular with all the comforts of home. We cannot wait to come back--again & again.'

'Sweet! Two weeks here has brought transquility back to my life.'

'Thank you so much for sharing this great place with me. I don't want to leave but looking so forward to coming back.'

Come and visit 'Griff's Place' where you can slow down and just enjoy the water and nature around you, but when you want to enjoy the sights of Charlotte, you are just a couple of miles from easy access of the city. Randy and I look forward to meeting you and having you stay in our home.

About Martha Edwards

Randy, my husband, was in the military for over 42 years and since he has retired, he has operated his own boat repair business on Lake Wylie. I was an educator with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System for over 30 years. After I retired, I decided to start renting my two homes on Lake Wylie and got into the vacation rental business. I am the person who emails you and talks to you via the telephone. I am also the person who cleans your home (along with a friend), makes sure everything is ready for your visit, and is there to greet you at your arrival. Randy and I consider all our guests to be special and are there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Martha Edwards purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Martha Edwards chose Charlotte

When Randy and I bought this house, we immediately noticed the good 'vives' of the house. You could picture the families of times past in the house eating together with the children running in and out the doors playing with one another. When I go over to Griff's Place, I always have felt at peace and so close to nature and God--I wanted to share this with others. With all the perils of like, I hope this house will bring peace and happiness to those who visit.

What makes this cabin unique

-The location of the house makes it easy and quick to access Charlotte and nearby towns. You are within 5 minutes from the outlet mall yet when you turn to come into Griff's, you are on a dead end road with little traffic. Once you turn off this road to go to the house, you experience serenity surrounded by woods and the lake.

-Everything is provided that you will need for a stay. Forgot your toothbrush, don't worry, I have extra.

-Beautiful views of the lake from every room of the home.

-Even though you are in a lake community, you are within ten minutes of retail businesses and less than two miles from Interstate 485 which connects to Interstates 85 and 77.

-Don't own a boat or can't afford to rent a boat, I provide a 4-man paddle boat and a dinghy with a trolling motor, no extra cost to you

The location of the house is so serene but within minutes you can be shopping or on Interstate 485. The house is furnished so it feels just like home but . . .Better!

3rd Visit!

  • 5 of 5

I had my 3rd summer vacation at Griff's Place this past August and it didn't disappoint. Another year of heaven in the very charming, peaceful yet joyous retreat owned by Martha and Randy. As always Martha and Randy were AMAZING. Not only fantastic owners, fantastic people. Thank you both for providing me my favorite escape 3 years in a row and ready for my 4th. I can't say enough; as soon as I walk onto Griff's - I can breath 10x easier. Such a treasure and I'm grateful for that week all year long!

Griffs is an absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

I reviewed tons of places before deciding on Griffs and so very happy with my choice. Martha was very communicative. Both Martha and Randy were absolutely wonderful and available for any questions or concerns. The cabin is cozy and has everything that you could possibly need. Just bring your food, drink and you are set. Very private. Enjoyed the swing on the covered back patio. The gas grill provided was great for cooking in. I am OCD on cleanliness and the cabin was spotless. Beds are very comfy and the bedrooms are large. Open kitchen/living room so everyone can be part of the conversation. Coffee in the morning overlooking the lake was very peaceful. Enjoyed lounging on the hammock too! Boats and dock provided were perfect for fishing. Very close to shopping and dining. Pictures do not do this place justice. Book Griffs! You will not be disappointed!!!!! Thank you Martha!

It was so peaceful and relaxing. All the comforts of home. The morning and evening views off the balcony were beautiful. I am recommending this cabin to my friends when they are in the area. We will return! Martha and Randy were great to work with.

Perfect Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Griff's Place offers all the amenities of home plus the lake. Very nicely decorated and clean. Privacy without being too far from town. The pictures provided do not do it justice. Had a wonderful week with my husband and two teenagers. Martha and Randy make sure you have not only what you need but what you want. Highly recommend!

Thanks for a great week!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so grateful to have found this little piece of paradise! It was exactly what we were looking for… peaceful, private and completely comfortable. We loved the incredible views and spent a lot of time on the patio just swinging and enjoying the scenery, especially the beautiful sunsets. We had a great time trying out the paddle boat and exploring in the jon boat, and were delighted to get close enough to see some tiny deer on the opposite side of the lake by the little “deserted beach”. The lake house was immaculate and very comfortable, and contained everything that we could need or want during our stay. We really enjoyed meeting Martha, and want to thank her again for sharing her lovely little lake house with us. We will definitely be back!!!
