About Martin Lee

I lived in NC for 8 years and enjoyed this home as perfect for water skis and boating. Located on large open water, yet off main channel, I fund it to be the best location on the lake for less trafficed high speed jet ski fun! I grew up in Ireland but I have lived in the US since college. I have enjoyed meeting many wonderful people over this past 8 years or so while offering this unique home on HomeAway.

Martin Lee purchased this house in 2006

Why Martin Lee chose Sherrills Ford

The quiet cul-de-sac street and unique looking appearance of quaintness. The wrap around driveway and fenced in yard is great and makes the property feel large and explorable. The view from the lakeside screened porch on the main level is awesome. This has to be the largest oven cove on the lake.

What makes this house unique

Definately the huge over cove which is perfect for water skiing or boating in general. The water slide for the kids on the dock!

Nice, relaxing stay at the lake!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time! We enjoyed time with family and friends at this quiet, peaceful area on the lake. The dock was roomy enough to accommodate several people at one time while swimming, boating and jet skiing. This area of the lake was not crowded at all which was very nice for skiing and tubing.

***One suggestion to the owner: the trees/shrubs are grown up so high that the view of the lake is almost completely obstructed from the house on all three levels. I would suggest having them cut down significantly so that the view may be enjoyed from the house. The photos on the VRBO website are deceiving in that they show and open view of the lake from the upper half of the property which was not at all accurate at the time of our stay.

Great value for families

  • 4 of 5

The property offered plenty of space for sleeping and lounging, and had all the basics needed in the kitchen. The neighbors were friendly and quiet. Parking was easy with the circular driveway; no need to juggle cars to get in and out. The backyard is perfect with the fire pit, swings on the dock and back porch, and even gates to close off the yard for the dog. The only issue we had was timing showers so there was enough hot water to go around.

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here last June. We had a great time and spend a lot of time swimmer and hanging out on dock. Everything was great. The only thing was gates don't close so we used wire ties to hold close to keep dogs in. If I had any bad to say it would be that our cleaning deposit was not returned. With that being said I can garauntee that we left cleaner than we arrived. We where cleaning dog hair up that didn't even match ours. Also cleaned the limbs out of yard after a storm cuz the dogs thought they were chew toys. Also guests might want to check grill when get there for gas. We got our supper ready the first night and got surprised with empty tank

Old, smelly house, great location

  • 3 of 5

The house was old and smelly, the downstairs bedrooms were musty (one bad enough, we decided not to use) the kitchen is beat up but usable, utensils and necessities not organized in any particular order. Eating area does not accommodate 10 people, which it should, as that's the number of people house sleeps. Couches in basement are uncomfortable (one so bad, you really shouldn't sit on, as you my hurt yourself on wood back)

The location is great, even though overgrown trees, bushes and weeds block the view of the beautiful lake.

The round around driveway, very convenient for loading and unloading stuff.

A week after checking out, still waiting on cleaning fee deposit which is with no doubt due back to me. We left the place cleaner than we found it.

One hot week in July!

  • 3 of 5

My family (wife, daughter & son-in-law and 2 dogs stayed at the Chalet for a week in late July.

This house, though dated, is very large, and is appointed for those with young children and pets.

At 3 stories, the bottom floor has 3 bedrooms - 1 bath, kitchen, dining area & den atmosphere with cable TV, the middle floor is large enough to put mattresses or blow up beds, a nice sitting area (with another TV) which leads on to a screened porch area, and spiral stairs lead to the 3rd floor (loft), which has 4 single beds with it's own A/C unit.

The second story also has both a foosball and basketball game to enjoy and entertain.

The large dock, which accommodates 2 boats and jet ski's, is located on a quiet cove, far away from the major activities that take place out in the main channel of Lake Norman, but easily accessible from this location.

There are 2 kayaks w/ life jackets available.

While we were there, we did have some A/C problems from the main unit, but Marty (owner) had them resolved quickly, and was attentive to our needs.
