About The Owner

We didn't want to sell his house after our son passed away. We decided a vacation rental would be a good way to share it with others. We have met a lot of wonderful people!

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Sherrills Ford

We live next door to this beautiful home.

What makes this house unique

The house is handicap equipped. There is a ramp from the garage to the house and an outside elevator from the deck down to the ground level.

Great vacation for Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 11 people enjoyed this wonderful home. We had a family gathering for Thanksgiving. What stands out is the hospitality of the owner and the activities available. We were able to enjoy kayak, stand-up canoe, fishing, night fishing, campfire. The owner texted us to let us know how to attract big fish at night and dropped more firewood for us. We were able to catch two huge largemouth bass. One giant catfish got away and there were plenty of bites at the end of November! Everyone had fun, from 50's to teens. There were plenty of board games and video games in the house. Thanks again for a wonderful time. We will be back!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better than the pictures and the owners were extremely nice/accommodating. We booked the house for a weekend get away with some friends (6 total). During our stay we spent a lot of time outside playing lawn games, grilling out, and catching largemouth bass right from the dock. The cove is very quiet and calm so a couple of us took out the paddle boat and kayaks to explore a little and enjoy the weather. The owners have done a great job with this place and seem to have thought of everything you could possibly need.

Owner's Response: This group of well mannered young men took advantage of the many pleasures Lake Norman has to offer in fall and winter. The lake is not just for summer play.

Great home for a family get away

  • 5 of 5

Was nicely laid out so that there were separate areas for all, some to relax, some to play, some to socialize. Happy to have the kayak and paddle boat to take out on the quiet cove. Was able to get my disabled father and handicapped mother in and comfortable. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and soaking up the sun and the view.

Perfect Vacation Home.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home to celebrate my birthday with my husband and two other couples and it was perfect! The home is very well maintained, clean and the perfect location. The owners were accommodating and available if I needed them. The boat dock is perfect, we had Salt Shaker Marine deliver a boat to the dock right in front of the house it was all completely hassle free. The private beach was perfect for paddle boarding or just floating in the water. All of my guests commented on how wonderful the weekend was. We will be back.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

This Sherrills Ford lake front home was an excellent location for us, a group of lady cousins enjoying a family heritage get together. Graciously, the owners had left welcome snacks on the counter for us. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. Being able to swing on the dock and on the lower patio was delightful. As se were on a family heritage weekend, we used the home as a launching pad for outings to local cemeteries, churches and Balls Creek Camp Meeting as well as to museums in Charlotte. So, we did not take advantage of the lake "toys", but, maybe next time. The house was clean when we arrived, and our clean up process was simple. I can't think of anything that was lacking. We highly recommend this property.
