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)

Recent 2017 comments from our guests have indicated that the pictures we are showing does not acurately reflect the beauty of our cabin. My view is that it is much nicer to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed. Everyone has been thrilled. This year I have encouraged our guests to take the time to write a review. Recent comments should give our future guests confidence should you decide to vacation with us at Lake Hyco. We are located in high water and on the lake. 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 of $125 a night for the separate villa. To view the pictures of our "in-law-suite" please refer to VRBO property 1043843. My email address is and my direct phone number is 919-559-7561. Please call me. Prior to booking I always like to discuss our home with our future guests to be sure it is the right fit for your visit to Lake Hyco. Be sure to pick up the phone and give us call.

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 monthly or weekly rent. We have a 4 day minimum rental period. 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 bathroom has 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. However, the fire place is only available during colder weather. 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 and we have Apple TV. We do not have cable. Please bring your own Net Flick, Hulu or Amazon Prime account information so you can log on to watch movies. 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 for those that desire that method. What ever is the easiest way for our guests. 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, Abby and Teddy, our poodles). When we moved to NC (about eleven 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 Roxboro

There are a number of wonderful properties for rent on Lake Hyco but this home is a very unique 19th century cabin that has been modernized and 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.

Terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay at John's cabin. John was very accommodating and checked on us multiple times during our vacation.

The cabin is comfortable and unique, the setting is beautiful, and the lake/dock is outstanding for hanging out, fishing, swimming, and boating.

Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: You were terrific guests. I am pleased your visit to Lake Hyco turned out well for your family. We don't have the time to enjoy the cabin our selves so It is nice to share our "on Golden Pond" with others who appreciate a wonderful lake and unique accommodations. Thanks for visiting.

Wonderful Holiday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cabin two years in a row on Memorial Day weekend. The area is beautifully wooded, quiet, boasts a wide view of the lake, and the home has been remodeled with modern amenities including a fully stocked kitchen and wifi. Our host has been gracious both stays and went above and beyond to ensure the home was well stocked and that we were comfortable. Would highly recommend!

Peaceful and refreshing

  • 5 of 5

Our family came away refreshed by swimming and fishing off the great deck, kayaking, and delicious food off the grill. Our souls were nourished by the view down the ivy-covered, wooded hillside to the placid lake and quiet conversations on the porch. We enjoyed the amenities of a hotel, but in a rustic, quaint, private setting. Would love to make it an annual tradition.

This home is even more beautiful than the pictures. Our family of 6 spent 4 nights in this Hyco Lake home. The home was immaculate! The bedrooms are large and each has it's own sitting area. A beautiful kitchen that was well appointed with kitchenware, condiments and spices. We spent most of our time on the large back deck overlooking the lake.John was the perfect host. He met us at agreed time and went over all the details that make staying in someone else's home much easier. What a retreat! Can't wait to visit again!

Wonderful cabin with fantastic dock; great for swimming and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We'd stay here again in a heartbeat! Plenty of room for three couples, 2 small kids and one baby. Great deck overlooking the lake, the dock is spacious and the swimming is awesome. John was very helpful and made sure everything was right with the property at the beginning of our stay. Great place for a vacation.

Lake Hyco Marina has boats for rent as well as Kayaks. In addition, the Marina has a reasonably well stocked store as well as a restaurant for your dining pleasure. 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 15 minute. However, downtown Roxboro has a number of stores, cafes, library and coffee places which is only a 6 minute drive.
