About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Our home has it all; over 200 feet of lakefront, a custom built lakefront firepit, a 7 person hot tub, a beautiful deep water dock; a swim ladder to help you get in and out of the water, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths in a beautiful 3600 square foot home situated on 1+ acres in the desirable Westport lake and golf community. With TWO lakefront lots our home gives you the privacy you desire on your lakefront vacation!

Your vacation home features a deck across the entire lakeside of the house complete with sun and shade and a sunken 7 person hot tub. There is a beautiful separate patio as you step out the lake level shaded by the canopy of a beautiful Oak tree.

The deck and patio are perfectly equipped with lounge chairs, outside dining tables and a side covered porch. Enjoy your vacation in our lakefront GAME ROOM with complete with pool table, foosball table, TV, stereo and complete bar with refrigerator!

Our lakefront family room has a cathedral beamed ceiling and large screen TV. We provide Direct TV in the family, game room and master bedroom, movie collection, music CD's, two stereos, two wood burning fireplaces, charcoal grill, lakefront firepit, ample parking, golf course neighborhood, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby!!

The lakefront master suite provides you a wonderful king size bed and an adjoining sitting room with daybed; perfect for that special little one. The master suite also has a private entrance opening to the deck offering you the opportunity to relax with a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning. Or join your spouse for a late night soak in the hottub overlooking the lake under the gorgeous stars and remember why you fell in love... so nice to have a romantic late night in the hot tub.

If you would like we will arrange to have 100% cotton luxury bed linens waiting for you when you will arrive so you won't have to worry about dragging all of them with you on vacation.

Your 'Fur' babies are welcome with your 'fur-baby' fee and we try our best to keep it where it is comparable to the boarding rates so you can bring your 'fur-babies' with you. We even have “doggy” doors on our home for small dogs as we had a small dog when we lived there!

We have arranged for your cleaning fee to provide you with a full departure clean allowing you to just enjoy your vacation to the very last second before you have to leave the lake.

Build a fire in our custom built lakefront firepit, pour a glass of wine and watch the sun go down and the ducks and geese in the lake settling down for the evening. They are such a pleasure to watch and with the right timing you are sure to see the Geese parents proudly parade their offspring by the dock daily.

If you don't have a boat, we can help you rent one and can give you the name of a company who delivers your boat directly to our dock saving your precious vacation time.

Have your own boat? Bring it with you; we can accommodate three boats at our dock. There is ramp less than 3 miles away.

Take the kids out on the lake and have a fun day boating, come back and cookout on the grill. Then soak your muscles in the hot tub and go relax next to the lakeside firepit.

If you like golf, go play a round of golf at the Westport Golf Course. On your last day, relax and don't worry about cleaning; the cleaning fee (paid directly to the cleaning company) allows you to just enjoy your lake time until the very last second and go home. NOBODY wants to clean house on their last day of vacation!

This is your 'Vacation on the Lake' and you deserve it!

We have been sharing our home with guest's for 7 years and making your reservation is very simple. Scroll down until you see Owner info (just below the location map) and you will see link for our private site where can make your reservation.

Just returned with my family and the lake 'howse' was everything they said it was and more. Spacious enough for even our extended family yet set up so my wife and I could still enjoy some privacy and the hot tub in the evening. Thank you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Mary! I hope you've had a great summer. I wanted to check in with you about renting your home again next year. The last two years we have visited in May, but it looks like the week of ***** is going to work better for the family in 2014. Is your Lake Howse available that week? I hope so! We have enjoyed staying there so much!

Thank you!

A fun and relaxing vacation .....wish we were still there.

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I do not ever write reviews but just had to this time. These owners are above and beyond on customer service. They gave us a recommendation to a company who delivered our rental boat to the dock and we didn't have to do a thing to go get it. They arranged to have all of the beds made up with linens for us so we didn't have to bring them with us or rent them, go pick them up and then make up our beds.

We started with them by staying in their beach house and learned afterwards that they have a home on Lake Norman and since we live in Charlotte decided to try the lake this year. A great experience. This home is just like their beach house; a comfortable home that will accommodate all of us and let us kick back and relax without paying 5k a week!

We'll be back; thank you again!

Thanks so much for a great vacation!

Our family all met here and we just had a big time. The house is great for families with kids with the big entertainment room downstairs.

We'll be back!

Peaceful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful and Relaxing are the two adjectives that accurately described our vacation! I wish I was back there right now on the deck drinking a cup of coffee watching the Geese on the waters edge.

The owners are great; since I work all the time we emailed back and forth late at night.

Thanks; can't wait to get back.

Lovely, spacious, well-appointed and CLEAN lake front home

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation at this lovely, spacious, well-appointed and CLEAN lake front home. We docked our boat at the dock which was really easy because the boat ramp is only a couple miles away.

We enjoyed both the ping pong and pool table, we grilled out quite a bit and enjoyed watching the lake from the HUGE deck, as well as the dock itself.

Thank you! Can't wait to come back!

A great Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had the kids & grandkids meet us at this house to have Thanksgiving together and we had a lovely time.

Did a little fishing and ate a lot! The house is big enough that we weren't on top of each other and affordable enough for me to be able to pay for the entire thing for everyone.

The people who email you are actually the owners and the fact that they don't charge a security deposit shows a trust I never see anymore.

We will be back; thank you for letting us stay.

A great relaxing vacation with family!

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find people who will let you bring 12 family members and 2 dogs at any price but these guys are great and the rate is extremely reasonable.

These owners actually live in this home and share it with guest's when they are out of state working because they are out of state working so much which I find amazing!

My family had a great time; we brought our bocci ball set and played it by the lake on that huge yard and had a tournament! Then we went in and had a billiards tournament on their pool table.

We sat by the firepit by the lake and caught up with each other and when everyone was sleepy and went to bed my husband and I got in the hot tub.

I really can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us.
