As you wind your way down the road to our lake house you should anticipate that soon you can totally unwind and enjoy the privacy and serenity our location on the lake has to offer. Our home is uniquely located on a very special part of the lake; on the "West" side of "Upper" Tillery. We feel the West side is best because the sun is at your back in the afternoon. We have a nice canopy of tree cover around the house and if you might be relaxing on the porch which adjoins the house, you are up high enough to usually enjoy a nice breeze, not to mention an incredible view. Your choice of dock or deck will determine how much sun or shade you get. You will have an unobstructed view of the lake and Uwharrie National Forest from 2 of 4 bedrooms that are upstairs and from the kitchen, living and dining areas which are downstairs. A gas grill is on the side of the porch for your grilling convenience. From our location, you will enjoy the privacy of woods on both sides. Morrow Mountain State Park will be on your left (North) as you look out, and no house immediately on the right (South) side of the house. As such, you can enjoy the magic that the best of mother nature has to offer yet you are still close to a great variety of civilization perks such as those offered by the local towns of Mount Gilead and Albemarle, NC and even a city; Charlotte, NC (about 1 to 1 1/4 hour drive).
Lake Tillery is located in the southern part of the Piedmont Triad area, about one hour east of Charlotte, North Carolina. Lake Tillery is close to not only Charlotte but also Greensboro and Asheboro. This lake is approximately 5,000 acres and has about 104 miles of shoreline; great if you enjoy boating, fishing, biking (road and mountain), hiking, camping, golf and more! If golf is a favorite activity, Piney Point Golf Course, in Stanly County, and Tillery Traditions Golf Course, in Montgomery County are two highly ranked golf courses that are within a short driving distance. A magnificent place to visit is The Fork Farm, which is a 1,300-acre farm that was created to preserve the wildlife in the area and to set up a state of the art equestrian facility. Guests can enjoy a variety of equestrian activities like trail rides and hayrides. For those that enjoy being in the outdoors, The Fork Farm also has sporting clays, shooting games and hunting (deer, quail, duck, and dove). Or maybe you are a NASCAR fan? The Charlotte Motor Speedway with its new drag strip AND Hall of Fame Museum is within a 45-minute drive. Another place to check out is the Reed Gold Mine, which is the site of the first documented gold mine in the United States.
