Property description

Our rustic cottage is the perfect place for relaxing in the serene beauty of Lake Wylie. While driving through the designated wildlife protection area to our home, you might see deer, osprey, turkey, and other wildlife. Our private community has a claim to fame- scenes from the movie “Days of Thunder”, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, were filmed here! We have a copy of the movie at the house for you to enjoy. See if you can recognize the scenery!

As soon as you enter the house you’ll immediately see why this property is the ultimate lakefront living experience; you’ll be able to see the gorgeous view through the window stretching across the back wall of the living room. After you’ve taken in the view you’ll notice the stunning wood crafted interior of our home. The log beams and loft in the master bedroom make you truly feel the rustic charm of the house. The whirlpool in the modern master bathroom is great for relaxing after a long day of lake activities.

Our home is great for those who love the outdoors! Outside of the master bedroom is a huge wrap-around screened-in porch complete with a sitting area and hammock. Connected to the screened-in porch is a large deck which is also accessible through the living room. With a sitting area, grill, and picnic table, our deck is the perfect place for enjoying the company of your friends and family while taking in the gorgeous view of the sunset on the lake.

While walking out to our 2-level dock overlooking the main channel of the lake, you’ll pass through a gazebo- a wonderful place to relax. Our dock has a platform which is perfect for fishing or unwinding in one of the dock chairs. Put your boat in at Copperhead Island and store it in our boat slip with a lift. If you don’t have a boat, you can rent one from one of the many nearby marinas. If you enjoy the beach, you’ll love our private sandy shoreline-great for young ones to ease in and out of the water.

We offer the best of lake activities: boat rides, tubes, kayaks, swimming, fishing, and playing horseshoes on our beach. If the weather isn’t cooperative, we have 2 satellite TVs, Wi-Fi, a DVD player, reading library, video library, and games available for your use!

Whether your preference is viewing the lake from our large deck, wrap-around screened-in porch, or 2-level dock, you’ll be awed by the water sparkling like diamonds in the morning and the spectacular sunsets in the evening. You’ll fall in love with the rustic charm of our unique cottage- the perfect place for your lakefront getaway!

Year Purchased: 1981

About: Roger and I are both from North Carolina. He was a Duke University football player and I was a UNC Chapel Hill Homecoming Queen (just imagine the rivalry in our household during March Madness!). We have been married 42 years. We are both originally from the Charlotte area and decided to raise our family here. As a child, I grew up on Lake Wylie and we wanted our sons to have the same opportunity to enjoy the lake. Needless to say, it was “love at first sight” when we discovered our cottage- we knew immediately that we had to own it. At that time, Roger worked for Bank of America (where he worked for 30 years) and I owned a software business, but we have both since retired and we spend our summers in the mountains of North Carolina and our winters in Florida. We have wonderful memories of raising our boys at our “Island Point Paradise”. We know you will enjoy our lake home as much as our family and friends have! -Georgia “Peach” & Roger

Why Steele Creek, Charlotte, NC, USA:
Growing up, my family owned a cabin on the South Fork of the Catawba River, which later became Lake Wylie. I have so many priceless memories of this lake: fishing with my Dad, teaching my younger brother and my future husband how to water ski, and lazy Sunday afternoon boat rides with my family, just to name a few. When looking at properties, we felt that not only was Lake Wylie home, it was also less congested than Lake Norman. We knew we’d be able to truly enjoy the natural beauty of the lake at Lake Wylie.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The cottage itself is unique in its rustic charm with a big stone fireplace, log beams, and a quaint loft. To keep it up-to-date, we have renovated it several times. However, while doing so we have been very careful to preserve all the reasons we fell in love with the home. Our waterfront retreat has a wide, gorgeous view of the main channel of Lake Wylie. The cottage sits high up on a hill, so the view from our deck is second to none. Our 2-level dock is wonderful for get-togethers and we have one of the few private sandy beaches on the lake.
