Breathtaking Lakefront Property; Quiet Cove with Deep Water

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 in beds)

We are located in high water and on the lake. 895 Huff Garrett Road. Please use that address when map questing the location. Please note that our main house is a 3 bedroom but there is a second villa that is available for those families that would like a 4th bedroom. I would call it an in-law suite. There is an additional charge for the separate villa.

Our home is a Gorgeous, large three-floor log cabin (built from the logs of the American tobacco barns) that has been professionally renovated, decorated and completely modernized. Nothing like it on Hyco. Never available before! Available for season, monthly or weekly rent. This luxurious, secure home is located at the end of a mile-long private road away from the main road. The cabin has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms (one with an original Victorian claw foot tub). Fully equipped modern kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances opens up to a large living/dining area that boasts a wood burning stone fire place. Balcony off living room makes you believe you are sitting in a tree house away from the rest of the world. Huge master bedroom suite opens up to private outdoor sitting area overlooking the lake. Elegant stone walkways and stairs lead you to a 140' long boat dock w/ lift in deep water. Private and quiet cove conducive to water sports, swimming kayaking, and more. Gas grill available for simple summer bar-b-ques, as well as a wood burning chiminea for toasting marshmallows. Perfect for adults, kids and pets. This season 2017 we have added complimentary high speed internet. Please bring your own Net Flick account information. Much more to see than what I have described!

Please know VRBO has changed a few things to assist our renters and make it easier for bookings. All my bookings have previously been done via direct discussion with my potential guests. I always want to be sure that our property is the right fit for our future guests. Our home is so unique and at times our home is not the right fit. Though I now have the ability for our guests to book and pay directly using the VRBO platform, I am still working individually with my guests confirming the rental details as well as receiving payment via a check to hold the reservation. Please note that though the calendar is empty, our home may or may not be already rented. Please call. I am still getting use to the new way VRBO is operating.

About John or Virginia

We are a family of five (mom, dad, daughter and two dogs (Chloe and Teddy, our standard poodles). When we moved to NC (about seven years ago) we decided to buy a second home on a lake. We dreamed about having a cozy log cabin but never believed we would find one. I guess dreams do come true! But life is busy and we have little free time, so we've decided to let others enjoy this beautiful place.

John or Virginia purchased this house in 2007

Why John or Virginia chose North Carolina

There are a number of wonderful properties for rent on Lake Hyco but this home is very unique villa that offers a touch of class along with amenities not offered by other owners. Seeing is believing. If you are looking for ordinary, try one of the other fine homes listed for rent.

What makes this house unique

Everything about this cabin is unique and magical. When you sit on the balcony overlooking the lake, it is like no one else exists in the world except the Blue Heron who sits on the edge of the dock. When you wake and sit up in bed, you have an unobscured view of Hyco. The sound of rain on the tin roof is soothing and comforting. Soaking in the claw foot tub is a great way to relax. The 140' long dock allows you to swim, picnic and play without being cramped. It is the perfect place to get away.

Breathtaking Lakefront Property; Quiet Cove with Deep Water
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Breathtaking Lakefront says it all!

  • 5 of 5

We are a repeat renter and a first time reviewer of our experience using VRBO. Our family had an awesome time last year and this year's experience is no exception. We can not say enough about Lake Hyco and the home we rented. You will not be disappointed. The pictures are accurate but better in person! Highly recommend Lake Hyco and this wonderful 19th century refurbished Cabin / Villa.

Family of three with teenage son had a very memorable week at this precious log home. I agree that you do feel like you are in a tree house when you are looking out onto the lake from the deck. The photos are accurate. We had such a great relaxing, quiet week, swimming and boating. We wish to thank the owners for being so kind and for trusting us with their precious log home. Perfect week with perfect memories. Thank you again.

If you want a quiet, comfortable vacation on the lake, this is the house for you. Our family loved the huge dock and enjoying our meals on the porch. What a view! Indeed it is like a treehouse. Oh, and we loved the house too! We hope to return next year. Thanks for sharing your dream home.

Some of the attractions listed may be up to a 15 minute drive from the lake house. The Wall Mart (5 miles) and Lowes (6 mile) is a short drive. The movie, bowling and ice skating complexes takes is a 15 minute drive. However, downtown Roxboro has a number of stores, cafes, library and coffee places which is only a 6 minute drive.
