About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, 1 + 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Great house, gorgeous location! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, near historic Shelby and Kings Mountain, NC. We have 5 acres of rolling hills and hardwood forest, directly on 400' of waterfront. Plenty of space to let the kids and pets run around! Only 45 minutes from Charlotte, but worlds away from the hustle and bustle.

Moss Lake is a quiet, spring-fed lake that is very clean (it’s the primary water supply for Kings Mountain) where you can canoe, fish, water ski and jet ski without the mayhem of other lakes near Charlotte. Close to Kings Mountain, Historic Shelby, Crowders Mountain, Schiele Museum, golf courses AND other attractions - there is plenty to do if you want to get out and about.

The waterfront includes a large private dock with mooring cleats, only a few minutes from a public landing so getting your boat there is a breeze! With state-record bass, it’s perfect for early morning anglers; with stunning views, it’s perfect for a sunset canoe ride. Or, kick into high gear with your jet ski or power boat. Whatever your pleasure, you’ll enjoy your water sports away from the crowds for a relaxing and fun experience.

On the property is a charming farmhouse with two bedrooms and one full bath and one half bath specifically set up for accommodating and entertaining large groups (owners have 5 kids, who all bring their friends for overnight sleep-overs!) With a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom, two sets of bunk beds in the other bedroom, as well as a pullout sofa in the great room - which all mean you can sleep up to 8 comfortably. Includes newly renovated modern kitchen and bathroom, washer/dryer, new water heater, A/C, etc. HDTV with DVD player, free WiFi, and a bunch of popular movies for your use. We even have a closet full of books, puzzles and board games if the kids ever wear out from all the fun in the sun.

This is truly a 'hidden gem' we are renting out again this year - discover it, and love it like we do!

About Steve

We are a family with 5 active kids and an energetic border collie. We use the lakehouse whenever we can - but enjoy sharing it with other folks.

Steve purchased this house in 2006

Why Steve chose Shelby

Gorgeous lake, very little boat traffic

Guestbook comments from the owner

My son had such a great time! We used the dock and lake a lot. Lots of wakeboarding...and Xbox (lol)! Thanks!

A Most Peaceful and Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A peaceful and relaxing vacation at a beautiful place. We started our morning off with coffee on the deck and seeing beautiful sunrises over the lake. During the day we took my husband's fishing boat and explored the lake. He enjoyed fishing and caught several big ones. Wildlife was abundant and we took some exceptional pictures.

Temperatures were high, but that did not bother us as we jumped into the lake to cool off. The dock was new, and had three comfortable lounge chairs on it, which we used to sunbathe. I was also pleased to find my favorite raft available for our use.

The house was clean and comfortable and provided all the amenities the owner described and more. The beds and couches were comfortable.

Thank you so much for sharing your "Little Piece of Heaven" with us.

Pam and Bob, Denise; Jessie James and Maggie Luca, too (Woof!)

Wonderful week at Moss Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This place was just as described. Very private, huge lawn for kids and dogs to run around, lots of lake front with trees and bushes at both ends so again, very private. And an AMAZING view of the lake from the dock. The house is small (double bed in one bedroom, 2 bunk beds in the other), but the kitchen and family rooms are spacious so you don’t feel cramped. You feel like you’re out in the country, but grocery stores, restaurants, shops, a movie theater, even little coffee shops are just 10 minutes away. Can’t wait to visit again!

Very Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Steve and Michelle for a great vacation.

My husband and myself where looking for a very laid back vacation just to get away from it all and this was the perfect location and vacation house. There are a lot of amenities that come along with this property. The house is well stocked with everything imaginable. We cooked all of our meals at the house and didn't even want to go out to eat. We did cook out several nights, bring charcoal if you plan to do that. We rented the Bass Boat from Steve and Michelle and it was great that we had the opportunity to enjoy the lake every day. The weather and temperature was great the entire week. We found a little convenient store down the street that is called Tom's and they have everything from fishing bait to fresh produce. (turn left out of the driveway and follow the road to the end. You have plenty of options for other entertainment even though I don't think you will need to ever leave the property. We had a great time and relaxing week and was given great customer service from Steve and Michelle. We will be renting again for the entire family. Thanks again Steve and Michelle. The property is more beautiful than the pictures show.
