The living-dining area is homey and the kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities. There is a dining room table for six. It has a new 40' flat screen TV and blu ray player.

Downstairs, a large, brand new second bedroom has been built and furnished with two queen size beds and flat screen TV and DVD player. It has its own half bath for convenience. In addition to the porch and the upstairs deck at part 2 of the guest house ensemble, our visitors also have the use of the covered patio and a second, eat in kitchen in Part 1 of the guesthouse ensemble. A gas grill, patio table and chairs, and swing are available to our guests so they can fully enjoy the stunning, 180 degree view of the lake!
The fishing and boating enthusiasts will be delighted with the use of the boat ramp and slip that come free with the guest house rental. A second slip may be rented for an added charge. Guests can rent a boat from local businesses or bring their own, insured boat and jetskis and avail themselves of the free boat slip. Swimming and fishing are enjoyed by many, and the lake is perfect for these activities. An added extra is the free use of our paddle boat, a Walker Bay rowboat, two kayaks, and a brand new 15.5 foot Old Towne canoe for those wanting a leisurely exploration of the cove.

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR GUESTS:
Hi Jim and Vivia,
We had a great time. Jim and Vivia were gracious hosts. The residence was a short walk to the water, plenty of fish in the lake, warm water to swim in, quiet, and the kayaks were fun. The rooms were clean. That's two thumbs up for us! It's about a 5 to 6 mile ride to multiple restaurants and plenty to do. Thanks for your kindness. Ed and Judy
'Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the peace and tranquility of your guest home. We enjoyed the relaxing weekend and hospitality!' Vanessa
'Our week at the lake was so relaxing. The accommodations were comfortable and even my son said he felt like he was at home. I appreciated the respect and privacy you gave our family. We felt like we had the place to ourselves with the luxury of knowing help was just a call away if we needed anything. You both went out of your way to meet the needs of our family, and by the end of our stay I felt like we had made some special friends! I will definitely tell friends about your hospitality and the great accommodations waiting for them at Lake Norman. Thanks again!' Connie and Bill
'Thanks! Again, we had a very enjoyable stay!!! Your hospitality goes above and beyond what we could have expected. Steve says thanks for allowing him to use your new rowboat! We will see you again...' Joyce and family
My elderly mother and I recently visited North Carolina from Canada,
spending 13 nights at Jim and Vivia's lakeside property. We found the
couple to be pleasant and accommodating. The home offered us all the
necessary amenities in a country setting while being in close
proximity to shops and restaurants. The lake was beautiful and felt
like slipping into bath water. It was relaxing and scenic with ducks
and loons to watch while neighbors were fishing and boating nearby.
The accommodations offered plenty in the way of water based activities
to entertain all ages. Lake Norman and surrounding areas were ease to
navigate with several routes to avoid fast congested freeways. We
enjoyed our stay at the lake house and would highly recommend it for
your consideration. Deborah

Nice to come home to someplace that had everything we needed to feel comfortable.
Jim and Vivia were very sweet, and we had a wonderful stay at their place. We appreciated that when I asked for a smooth side meat pounder, that Jim ran out and delivered one for the place the very next day. We appreciated all the amenities the property offered us, even though we were there for a college visit and didn’t have a lot of time to utilize most of it. Was perfect for our family and we would definitely stay here again.
We really did enjoy your visit and we're so glad you had that time with your family. We look forward to seeing you again and we wish you well in all you do!
Jim and Vivia

It's always nice to watch the excitement of our guests who arrive to attend ball games, NASCAR, or the fishing tournaments. We're glad you enjoyed yourselves and we look forward to seeing you again one day! Jim and Vivia
The Tatum’s accommodations are clearly excellent. This property is very comfortable.
The Tatums are very gracious and are accessible for concierge assistance! Accommodations are very good, and are close to local restaurants. Downtown Charlotte is approximate 45 minutes from the Tatum’s property: The Lake clearly offers another recreational activity for visiting this area and Kayaks are available for your enjoyment!
We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We enjoy having guests come and relax and enjoy the view of the lake. Our guesthouse is also close to several communities which offer varied places to shop and go to restaurants. We look forward to meeting new people and telling them about wonderful Lake Norman!
