About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This is a laid back, relaxing cottage; perfect for just kicking back and enjoying the lake. Leave your shoes in the won't need them here! This is not a luxury home; it is a lake cottage and we love it this way. We do have a nice TV in the family room and a tv in the master bedroom but we encourage you to turn them off and play together at the lake.

NOTE: this home rents Saturday to Saturday during summer season.

We also have another lake home on Lake Norman that has 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, dock etc., see our link to our website.

She offers a full kitchen with two refrigerators (one is never enough on vacation is it?), an outside eating area on deck, a separate sundeck for you sunbathers and a BIG picnic style dining table large enough to seat everyone.

Relax on the lakeside deck adjacent to the dock and the beach while the kids play or go swimming in the lake in the summer. Our dock has been sitting in deep water all through the worst of the drought and has NEVER been unable to dock a boat. Don't have a boat; no problem. We know a boat rental company who will deliver it to your dock.

In the cool of the evening, go down and build a fire in the lakeside fire-pit and just relax; this is what vacation is supposed to be and you are there. Be careful...the night slips away fast by the lake when the fire is glowing and family and friends are reuniting; it will be morning quickly.

Refund Policy:

If you have to cancel for any reason you can receive a refund IF we are able to re-rent your reserved time out to another renter. If we are able to do so then when all payments have been received by us from the new renter you will receive a refund of monies you have paid minus PP fees and 10%.

Vice Nice!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time. Richard was very attentive with any questions that I may have had regarding linens, deposits, etc. Even when we had a problem with the lighting in one of the bedrooms and one of the toilets, he sent over someone to fix it within 24 hours. Excellent! My only suggestion would be to add at least one or two more tv's since the house is so large. Other than that, I would definitely rent again if in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your remarks and we are very glad you had a good time. We appreciate suggestions and we have a larger tv for the family room the way. We are then going to move the tv presently in the family room to the master which will give it a larger tv as well. Hope you come back!

If you need a big house on the lake this is it.

The house is spacious with a wonderful lake view. My husband, kids and grandkids enjoyed fishing off the dock even in the cold weather.

We enjoyed this so very much.

We all enjoyed our stay there in 2008 so very much and want to come back with more family! Everything was exactly what you said it would be and we have talked over and over about how much we enjoyed our family vacation. Your communication is spot on and I highly recommend your home. Thank you!

A lakefront home that sleeps ALL of us that is also AFFORDABLE. FINALLY!

  • 5 of 5

I want to say right up front that I was looking for an affordable home on the lakefront where I could take my entire family (all 15 of us) to be together and everything was much more expensive than "Our Lake Howse II" so I wasn't going to be too picky. However this house is exactly what they say it is a lake house that you can kick back and relax and have fun in! We put a fire in the firepit down by the lake and let the kids talk us into (right!) roasting marshmallows and when they went to bed the adults stayed and just watched the stars and relaxed.

I can't thank you enough for sharing your home with us.

We just returned home from a week at this house . Absolulty AWESOME !! House is very clean and met all our needs . Owners we're amazing at every small detail and offered immediate assistance . The neighbors are residents or don't rent out they were all friendly and helpful when we did not head the warning about the pump . We were fine all week doing laundry and showering but our last day we all were going somewhere and showered before 10am. Owner responded immediately to help us and the neighbor pitched in .

Highly recommend this house to any family who wants to have a great week.

We did rent a pantoon boat also and it added a gear deal of fun to all our teenagers and young adults .

Thanks for a wonderful week. We will be back !

Very relaxing and great to work with

  • 5 of 5

I was on a waiting list and very glad to receive an email that the house had become available at the last minute. Apparently the cleaning crew had their schedules messed so they didn't show up and the people who rented it did not want to clean it and there was a bees nest in the backyard so they left and the owners told me if I didn't mind cleaning it then I could go ahead and come last night and they would waive the cleaning fee and have someone come in and get rid of the bees nest. Hey, I own rental properties too so I know how it works so we jumped in the car; (we live in Hickory) drove to the house, cleaned it up, made up the beds and now we are relaxing with a beverage. And happy to have saved the money; I told the kids I would order pizza over and over with the $195 we saved. (I'm sure they are not going to forget that one.)

Thanks guys!

This place is very relaxing and quiet and my wife and kids are thrilled to be able to spend some time on the lake after all since we were not able to find an available house!
