Unforgettable Views...

This cozy brick 2BD 2BA lakefront home has one of the best views on the lake of the Uwharrie National Forest and feels like it belongs all to you. Located approximately 1 hour from Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston Salem and High Point. This slice of heaven is just perfect for a small family vacation, anniversary, friends' getaway or fishing retreat.

Master with a queen bed and small 2nd bedroom with twin bunk beds. Great layout for a couple or families of 4. (Beds for 4 adults). A large screen enclosed porch with ceiling fans and comfortable furniture serves as a second living room overlooking the lake and Uwharrie National Forest. Inquire if you have a child as a 5th guest/addtl 25/nt. Maximum total guests allowed is 4 (day or night). Day guests w/prior approval. NO PETS policy.

A dock and steps leading into the water are convenient for taking a cool dip. Bring your boat or jet ski and enjoy fishing and the serenity of the lake's 115 miles of shoreline. The dock has room for a boat or jet ski to tie up and access to deep water.

Amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer (in the basement), utilities, wifi, (no phone but most cell services work well), gas grill for outdoor cooking, fire pit with Adirondak chairs, satelite Dish televisions, dvds, books and games. A large hot tub with a fabulous lake view is located beneath the screened porch area (great for when it is raining). A covered gazebo to give you a place to get out of the sun but still enjoy the incredible views. A large yard for tossing the football or frisbee. A canoe is available (with life jackets) to enjoy exploring the lake or fishing for dinner. And of course, a hammock for an afternoon nap. Parking for 2 cars and a nearby boat ramp at the Wildlife Marina on Blaine Rd within 2 miles or a small neighborhood ramp 3/4mi away.

Fish from the dock, bask in the sun, relax...

Spend the day boating, swimming, fishing, or simply relaxing on the pier with the sound of the water soothing your stress away.

For those seeking more adventure... hike or bike the Uwharrie National Forest across the lake (accessed a few miles away by car). Pontoon boat rentals may be available from Skallywags or Ole North State Marina.

Within 30 minutes... North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro; Seagrove, NC-Pottery Capital of North Carolina and Dan Nicholas Park in Salisbury.

About Russ and Kay Myers

We fell in love with the lake the first time we visited and knew we wanted to live there someday. Since we live a short drive away we steal away every chance we can until we are there full time!

Russ and Kay Myers purchased this house in 2008

Why Russ and Kay Myers chose New London

We chose this location on the lake because it is located directly across from the Uwharrie National Forest with an untouched and beautiful view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I came here for our first time away, just the two of us, since the birth of our son 1.5 years ago! We needed the getaway and this was the perfect spot! We weren't looking to do anything "touristy", just relax! A beautiful and meticulously clean home with gorgeous views was what we got! My husband loved the fishing off the dock, we even did some fishing at night. We enjoyed the canoe and just relaxing/reading on the dock; hammock or screen porch. We enjoyed a couple dinners out at some local places, my husband especially liked the catfish dinner at Badin Lake Restaurant! The grill at the house made it easy to stay put and make dinner, too! Kay and Russ were easy to work with and warmly welcomed us. The house had everything we needed to make our stay easy and enjoyable. Everything was just as stated on the website/contract, even better! We look forward to coming back soon!

The home was perfect! We had a very good vacation. A week of complete relaxation. I'm not sure which we enjoyed more, sitting on the large screened porch watching the birds, squirrels, ducks, blue heron, osprey and other wildlife or the great fishing off the dock. The weather was great, the house was clean and had everything we needed. We took a long canoe trip around part of the lake and out to the beach on the island. Don't know if I would try that on a Saturday, but on Tuesday it was perfect, very little boat traffic. We grilled every night but one and ate on the porch. What a view for dinner!, We went to the White House Bar and Grill, good food and really nice people.

When we arrived, Kay and Russ had left us some fresh nectarines, fresh flowers and a nice bottle of wine. They made this an easy process and a great vacation. Wish we could have stayed at least another week.

Kay and Russ, Thank you for everything and for sharing this wonderful place!

This is enchanting place with a magical house beside the lake.

  • 5 of 5

The house has a lot to offer with the comfortable accommodations inside. The large bedroom was extra nice with open bathroom. The house has two back decks to view the beautiful lake. A huge hot tub is waiting after you arrive off your own private deck from a swim or boat rental. The fishing is great off the deck too! I caught a 4 pound catfish today. The quiet location is perfect for a small family. The owners were so generous with everything especially with a kitchen packed with spices and extra appliances. A magical place to get away from it all!

Lovely location and warmly furnished house

  • 5 of 5

The lake view is stunning from the high screened porch. The rooms are comfortably furnished, with oversized couches and chairs in the main living area and on the porch -- relaxation is taken seriously here. The same is true of the spacious dock, with its deep double couch and chairs. Fishing from the dock is good, including smallmouth, lemonfish and some feisty catfish off both lures and nightcrawlers. (The slope from the house to the water is quite steep, and might be challenging for someone with limited mobility.) The well-equipped and well-supplied kitchen and dining area make cooking and eating easy and a pleasure. The master bedroom with bathroom ensuite is also comfortably furnished, though some may find the open-floor plan unusual. The room with bunk beds and additional full bathroom make sleeping four easy. The basement includes a sitting area and storage for various water gear. Everything works, including TV and wifi. The lake shore appears closely built from the road, but the trees and other growth between houses give a sense of isolation. You'll know you're not alone when the power boats and jet skis get going. The owners were very responsive, both during our stay and in handling the security deposit afterwards. A lot of thought has gone into this house. Overall, a truly pleasant experience.

Very relaxing and peaceful with plenty to do!

  • 5 of 5

The back screened in porch is my favorite spot in the whole house! I sat out there just about all day long relaxing and reading my book. The weather was perfect! Trails all over to hike and only 30 min from the zoo, which you should check out if you get the chance. I can’t forget the hot tub. It came in handy for the chilly nights and if you turn the lights off and only have the hot tub light on, you can see the silhouette of the nearby islands And all the stars. We will definitely be back!

Restful, peaceful. Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a weekend getaway that provided a peaceful, restful environment, complete with hot tub. This lake house proved to be just the ticket. Kay's and Russ' description of their home is spot-on. It's easy to locate and has ample parking. Amazingly clean and tidy, kitchen extremely well-stocked (everything we needed/wanted - and then some! - at our fingertips), comfy furnishings indoors and out, great views, and a wonderful hot tub. We enjoyed watching the many birds - around the property and on the water.

Kay and Russ responded to our rather last-minute reservation request in a very timely matter and provided all necessary information for both getting to the location and what to expect once we arrived. They were readily available by phone/text once we completed the reservation. The porch light was on in case we arrived after dark. We also received a great list of local information regarding food, activities, etc.

I wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return for another visit.

Thank you for sharing this lovely lake house!
