About Sherry McGill

Bill and Sherry from Englewood, FL .....We love North Carolina and now living in Granite Falls,NC.

Sherry McGill purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Sherry McGill chose Lake Hickory

Bill and I bought this home for it's quaintness, trees, golf course, and boating community. The cove is perfect for swimming and family fun. Bring your boat! Take the kids to Hiddenite Emerald Mine. Tweetsie Railroad or Hickory's Science Museum. There is a large public access for boats around the cove to launch your boat and deep water dock on the property. You can hear the 6th hole of the public golf course off the deck so bring the clubs. It is a family and friends vacation spot. My 7 grandkids just love it! You will enjoy the Lake Cottage as well. It is also a great base for all to have winter fun in Boone, NC. The home is for sale so I can only book 35 days in advance.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet and relaxing but near Action and Hectic.... Good Fishing and walk to Ole Still Clubhouse for Golfing..... Boating... Peaceful Deck

Six night stay on Lake Hickory

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place to stay while visiting in Hickory, North Carolina. Better privacy window treatments throughout would have earned this home a five star rating.

A Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

As a mom of kids ranging from 30 to 1 1/2 years old, I needed a place for my husband and I to get away to for the weekend. This hidden treasure was truly what we needed. The location is quiet and tranquil. The amenities were very well stocked, and Mrs. McGill truly puts her heart into making sure your stay is everything you want it to be. Book won't regret it!

Because the rental agreement mentioned internet and there was a code on the sheet at the house, I was disappointed to find that I had neither internet nor wi fi. There was Dish. I had planned to do some work while I was there.

The house is very close to the town of Hickory. It is in the great neighborhood of Oliver's Landing. There is only one shower in the house for 6 people. The decks were moldy and the patio not swept. The yard needed mowed. They did come while we were there and mowed.

I wanted to move out but the company would not let me. If you are looking for a rustic experience in a great location, this one is for you.

Owner's Response: I've had great reviews so far in my experience as a vacation home owner, this is a first 2 star. In my rental agreement I clearly state there was NO internet or WIFI connection (the code was left from a previous renter) in my home so very confused about the 1st sentence, I'm sure it's frustrating if your intentions were to work a bit. Our sweet lake cottage is not brand new but with it's wonderful price-point you are getting a sufficient, clean, private and homey water front rental with 1 full bath w/ shower and 1 bth with big tub, perfect for 6, but I only received a booking for 4. In the summer, the grass grows fast and we felt we did our best at mowing as quick as possible, our home is shaded by mature leafy trees that may cause some porch dampness, we'll watch closer for this if it's an issue.

Fourth of July weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental. We stayed for four nights over the July 4th weekend. House has everything you need. This was our first time to visit Lake Hickory and we loved the lake. Very clean lake - we all enjoyed swimming. My husband caught a lot of fish. Sherry is wonderful to work with.

My family stayed at this lake house and we had an amazing time here. The house was very spacious and the setting of the cove was gorgeous. Great for fishing or just relaxing by the lake. This experience has open our eyes to a whole new manner of vacationing and we hope to return annually. The owner, a very nice lady, has done a great job at making everyone feel welcomed. She is a blessing from above. Thank you for making our vacation a success.
