About the property

4 bedrooms, 3 Bath, Sleeps 12

--Location--Location--Location--This quaint lakefront cottage with

decorator touches offers the best in casual lakefront living and is

situated with its own private dock and pier on Lake Norman's 520 miles

of shoreline. This 4 Bedroom 3 Bath home that sleeps 10-12

comfortably is located only minutes from I-77 Exit 36 on a quiet

culdesac on well known Skipper's Cove. It's the best of all worlds.

You have the convenience of fine restaurants, entertainment, and the

newest shopping centers at your fingertips while staying in this cozy

home on a beautiful picturesque cove large enough for skiing and all

sorts of lake activities and you're only a short hop to the main

channel. But should you not want to see a single congested area you

can do all your shopping in the lovely little town of Troutman.

You'll be delighted and surprised at how roomy and spacious this 2

level 2200 sq ft home really is. That's the first response we get

from our many repeat guest we've hosted over the last 10 years. They

also echo in just how comfortable and at home they feel. So much so

that most just don't want to leave. With 10 years experience hosting

vacationing families, we've listened and incorporated in the things

they tell us make their week the most pleasant and they always come back.

As you open the door to this clean and freshly updated home, light

pours in through the kitchen window with a view like no other of the

lake no matter what time of year it is. You notice as you pass

through the fully equipped kitchen that any cook would admire that the

entire kitchen and living areas are airy and open up to each other so

that everyone can be together and be a part of all the fun activities

going on at any point.

The family room has lots of plush comfy

seating with a nice television over a fireplace with gas logs should

someone come in cooler months. This main level also boast 2 oversize

bedroom suites large enough for adjoining sitting areas and two full

baths for guests convenience.

Next you find one of the most favorite things that guests tell us

about time and time again. Opening up from the family room is a large

screened in porch that sits uniquely close to Waters Edge's shoreline.

Furnished with lots of outdoor furniture, you can sit on the porch

free of bugs or pests day or night rocking in the rocking chairs,

relaxing, enjoying a meal or drink while watching the children play or

the squirrels and chipmunks scamper up trees, or just listening to the

birds chirp, the wind rustling through the leaves or best of all the

sounds of the lake--waves lapping up against the shoreline.

PRICELESS!! Some say most of the week is enjoyed there.

As you go down the stairs in the family room to the second level of

the house you find another whole living quarters with direct access

outdoors. There is a living area with a 46' telvision for the games,

a second kitchen area, a game room with foosball and ping pong and

board games. In addition are two more bedrooms and a third full bath.

Multiple family groups love the layout so that each family can have

their own private quarters or the adults can have their own level and

the kids their own.

The living and game room open up onto yet another large lake level

patio with great views of the water. If you venture a few steps off

the patio you find a big double size hammock right by the shore just

waiting for someone to jump into to swing with the kids, read a good

book or take a snooze. When you wake up you can step a few

steps literally on pavers down to a shoreside sitting area that's

enclosed for the safety of the little ones to enjoy all the family

Location, Lakeside and Lightnin' Bugs!

We really enjoyed our North Carolina vacation...

This home has a great location with its own personal dock. I highly suggest renting a boat to get the most of your lakeside experience. Most boat rental places will deliver it right to the dock for you...some will even drive you around.

We also loved the screened porch, especially in the quiet, early morning. A family of ducks visited a few mornings, and lightning bugs lit up the evening sky. What a treat for someone like me who doesn't see such a thing in New Mexico! I was like a giddy kid!!

There were 4 adults and 3 13-year old boys in our party, and there was ample room for everyone including two living areas. The kids enjoyed hanging out downstairs in their own space. Take note that you should stop by the store on your way in or pack a few items like dish soap, trash bags and toilet paper. Owner/renter will likely remind you as well. Oh...and beach towels if you like something a little larger on the boat! Bath towels, linens and dishes are all well as a handy BBQ grill.

Thanks for a great visit and sweet, Southern hospitality.
