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 perfect lake house; (howse)

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time; we put a fire in the firepit and roasted marshmallows like we used to do when we were kids. The hot tub was fantastic and we took full advantage. The only think I wish I had done differently was to rent the sheets and towels; next time we will. We've already contacted the homeowner to rent again; hopefully they are open.

Thank you for sharing your lake cottage; it's such a friendly place and the pictures of your kids growing up on the lake are quite special!

Quiet, peaceful location.

  • 4 of 5

The views are beautiful in a peaceful setting. The beds are more than comfortable and the owners were very attentive if there were any needs. The cove is quiet and in a convenient location to town and various marinas as well as only a 30 min drive to Charlotte

House was right on the lake, near a bunch of stores and restaurants to stock up on food and supplies, and the house had plenty of room for 6 of us.

Additional information about rental rates

cleaning $295
Pet Fee $150

HOLIDAYS ARE ADDITIONAL! We DO offer refunds however VRBO does not offer our policy as a preset option to pick from because we do not charge a Security Deposit! We will refund your rental amount IF we are able to re-rent out your reserved time minus 10% and possibly credit card fees. Rates are subject to change without prior notice. Your reservation is not confirmed until we have received your payment and we have received your signed Reservation Confirmation Agreement. The "fur-baby" fee is PER "FUR-BABY", of course, which is why it says "fur-baby" fee instead of "fur-babies" fee. You cannot bring multiple "fur-babies" for one fee and the maximum allowed is 3 dogs.
