The home was beutiful

  • 5 of 5

I traveled here with my family for a week and we had a wonderful time. I was married on the deck overlooking the lake at sunset and it was beautiful. I would recommend this home to anyone.

House was perfect for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 13 people and it accommodated everyone well. We really enjoyed the kayaks, noodles, and other flotation devices for lounging in the lake. The kitchen has everything you need in terms of pots, pans, and utensils, including an ice cream scooper! We used the green egg for grilling, which was great! And we also used the oven to cook large meals. We made a day trip into Charlotte, but with the lake so close, we cancelled our Carowinds outing and opted to hang out at the house instead. We took some great family photos in the front yard and on the dock. We couldn't have asked for a better place! It was nice that the owner lived close by - he helped us with the Nintendo set up.

Wonderful house/property-Perfect for larger group!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house on the 4th of July weekend with a group of five families. The house was perfect! Lots of space- stocked with everything you could need and more! Plenty of space for everyone to spread out and hang out. Very nice perk that almost every room has its own bathroom. Quite kid friendly (LOVE that there is a gate with latches at the end of the dock) too! We met Jack (the owner) as we were checking in. He is very nice and hospitable! We absolutely enjoyed our stay and have already started looking for a date to come back next year! Thank you Jack for a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

Fantastic Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both Boardwalk and Park Place for a birthday celebration. We stayed for five days and the accommodations held all 32 of us! The homes were just a short walk apart, and it was nice to have a bit of separation. The larger home was stunning. It was beautifully appointed and decorated. There were decks off of almost every room in the house and the location was beautiful. The smaller home is definitely more outdated and was a bit musty smelling, but its location provided for better swimming for everyone. Having use of both homes allowed us to use the larger one for meals and the smaller one for swimming. The lake is beautiful and the water was deep off of both docks.

I would definitely recommend renting these properties. Jack Green, the owner, was so wonderful to deal with, and his propoerty manager met all of our needs (ie: more toilet paper!) immediately. We would definitely stay there again!

The house was beautiful and was perfect for a guy's weekend! There were so many entertainment options (pool table, game room, and lake activities) and it never felt crowded with 20 men in the house for the 3 day weekend. The house had many high end features and Jack did a great job giving directions and laying out the rules/expectations before we got there. I plan on coming back in the future and it's a perfect house for retreats and family reunions.
