About Lin Garvey

We are Steve Tobin and Lin Garvey. We live in Charlotte, NC where Steve grew up. We have a 31 year old daughter and twin 23 year old boys. Ours is a second generation lake house, built by Steve's Dad. It is a very special place to us and we have decided to share it with others. It's the kind of place where memories are made!

Lin Garvey purchased this house in 1975

What makes this house unique

Easy to reach, we are located on the quiet side of the lake in Denver, NC just off hwy 16 away from the hustle and traffic of I77.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful time we all had! From 10 mo. old Liam to 88 year old grandma Rita! The house is perfect - wouldn't change a thing and it had everything we needed - so well thought out. Thank you so much!

Incredible property and location!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for any type of traveler. Everything was as advertised online and even better in person. The home is clean with spectacular views and plenty of shade to stay cool. The water is deep off the dock so cooler than other locations on the lake. Getting a rental boat was easy and close to home by land and water. The dock is perfect for sunbathing and the steps to the right of the dock are perfect for getting in and out of the water. There are plenty of restaurants close by again by land and water. Lin was great and accommodated all of our request. I can't say enough how happy we were with our stay and our family will be back soon!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation for my family. We had 4 teenagers and 5 adults in our group. We had plenty of room. Most of our time was spent in the water. We rented a pontoon boat and a jet ski for the week. I would highly recommend this house!

Outstanding Lakehouse!!

  • 5 of 5

The Lake house was perfect - exactly as advertised. We rented a ski boat and were able to dock it right on the pier. Lin was very responsive and easy to work with. We will definitely return for a future visit.

Perfect lake house

  • 5 of 5

Rooms were clean and of good proportions. Nice size master bedroom with great natural light. Enjoyed the screened porch and being in the trees. Enjoyed the upper deck on the dock. Lin was very responsive to all questions. Would stay here again.

Amazing home with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was perfect for my family from Virginia to visit. Easy and fast communication with the owner. The interior of the house felt like home- plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, space and patio. My family and I loved the view and sitting on the dock was relaxing. I recommend this home for family reunions because that's what our family did and it was a great way for us to show them the lake and city.Thank you Lin, for letting us spend our weekend here.
