Comfortable lake front log cabin studio loft on deep water cove on the largest lake in NC. This comfortable 850 square foot log cabin loft is nestled upstairs in the trees above a detached garage with a great view of Lake Norman, which can be enjoyed from the comforts of the loft or from the 28' screened in porch. Walk in the front door and head upstairs to your retreat. You do not share the cabin. The rental is one large open room above a detached garage (no one reads this so I add it again) with everything you need (the main house is next door). The only walls and doors are to the large bathroom and closet. I add this because I have had request for 6 adults which I can't in good conscience accept.
This is a great couples retreat, or couple with a couple of children. My brother and his wife, their two boys and two of the boys friends have stayed there, but that is stretching the limit of 'comfortable.'
Basically Boys and Girls if you can get your significant other in the car with a few clothes it is a great surprise destination. I don't do large parties. I add this because I get numerous requests for large birthday parties, weddings, receptions, family reunions and you name it I have probably been asked. I'm just not equipped for large crowds or even crowds above 6. If you want to rent the boat or have a small cook out for about 10 max I will try to accommodate you as long as everyone is leaving before bedtime. Thanks for understanding.
If you are coming looking for real estate and you don't have an agent yet I can refer you to one of several that I refer to. They are all excellent and respond to your needs. There have been at least 7 guests who have purchased on the lake and sometimes depending on location we will look at the property by water. Let me know when you are making the reservations and I will connect you with an agent and you can start to narrow your search before you arrive.
- Kitchen furnished with granite counter-tops and black appliances, along with a coffee maker, pots pans, utensils, etc. All you need to bring is your food and shopping is close, within 3 miles of the loft.
- Living area is complete with a flat screened TV, an array of DVDs and queen-sized futon for extra guests or children. Air mattress is also available.
- Large bathroom with tub/ shower, and washer/dryer. Sheets, bath towels, wash and hand towels, along with beach towels are provided.
- Large and small coolers for you to use.
- Large walk in closet.
- Wireless internet .
- Night time climb into the plush queen-sized Log Bed.
- Dock privileges with boat ramp close by, so you can bring your boat! The next door neighbors allow me to use their ramp as long as I am here. Their price is a 12 pack of Miller Lite which they leave in my refrigerator so the can just show up and have a beer.
-From previous requests, I now have a 1998 23ft. Bennington Pontoon with a 90HP Honda 4 stroke available to rent. $175/ day, or $35 / hour. Best price on the lake. Check it out, others are $200/ day to $450/ day on weekends and you have to go to them. This one is tied up at the dock waiting for you. Requires a $400 fully refundable cash deposit and signed rental agreement. Take it out full of gas and bring it back full and in good condition and your $400 will be handed right back to you. Please request the boat with initial request for cabin rental in case there should be a maintainence issue I can inform you, or occasionally I get requests from non guests for rentals.
-Floats, skis, kneeboard and tube are included in the boat rental.
Or if you would prefer to make advanced arrangements I will Captain you out for $75 per hour gas included. I will take you fishing for the same price. Skiing or tubing $90 / hour.
- I also run charter cruises with Captain and First Mate for 10 / 12 max. persons for $125 an hour. Two hour minimum.
- Take the cabin and boat for the week for $2,000 saving $345 off daily rental rates on each.
- Two person 10' fishing boat with electric trolling motor availble for $25/day, $100 / week
- Two 10' fishing/paddling Kayaks with paddles and paddling vests $20/ day each or $85 week each.
- Free Happy Hour Welcome Cruise (1 hour, $75 to $125 value), weather and season permitting, compliments of the Owner, so sit back relax with a cool drink and discuss the plans for your getaway and get familiar with the lake. Bring your camera, to get home ideas from some of the massive homes on the lake.
- Picnic shelter comes fully equipped with a gas and charcoal grills, ceiling fan, TV, swing and table and chairs. Hammock is available in the large open yard facing the lake.
During your stay you are free to lounge around swim or fish on the boat dock or on the pontoon boat. You are also welcome to ride along if you see the 'Captain' going out for a ride. I usually try to give you a little notice if know I'm going out.
(Unfortunately if we have a Charter Cruise booked I won't be able to accommodate additional guests on that cruise.)
In the summer, it's not uncommon to find some vegetables awaiting you when your boat ride is over. When the tomatoes are ripe you can pick a fresh one to slice for a sandwich or a burger.
Laidback is here, where are you?
Come spend a little time with me and my threee knucklehead pups. Meet my golden retriever Beau and my two rescues Jangles and Bizkit. They are very entertaining and love having guests visit. Beau loves "tug of war" Jangles loves belly rubs and Bizkit loves sleeping and food.

About the owner: I left corporate America December 2007 and have survived on my real estate investments since that time. The Garage Loft has been used as a long term rental but 5 years ago when it came open I decided it might be fun and interesting to rent it out to folks weekly. This has proven to be true. I look forward to sharing my over 1 acre lot on Lake Norman with you. I can be as scarce as you desire however I do live in the main house next door. Come try log cabin living for a while. Hopefully we can enjoy a boat ride and a few laughs and you can relax here at the lake.
