The home is well loved and cared for and it’s in such a beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

The home is massive and very separate so with 5 families all together, we didn’t even notice that there were 11 kids (6 toddlers) with us! Basically everything you need is there! The theatre room is awesome and SO well done! The perfect place for teenagers to sleep. The state park offers awesome hiking trails and family walks. We really enjoyed our time and Jack, the owner was SO attentive. We hope to be back soon!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Park Place for a reunion with 18 people over Labor Day weekend and had an amazing time. The house is set up over three floors, so it never felt crowded. The pictures and video do not give it justice. The house is beautiful and the property feels very secluded which made for a relaxing getaway. We rented a pontoon for Saturday at the nearby marina (10 min drive) and it was very easy and accommodating. We cooked every meal in the kitchen, which was fully stocked with every appliance or utensil we might need. Jack was so helpful, reaponsive, and friendly and his house was stocked with everything we needed. We had an amazing time, definitely stay at Park Place!!

terrific place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our 19 relatives had a family reunion July12-17, 2017 at Park Place. We had a ball. We found the place to be spotless, exceedingly well equipped, top quality appliances, plenty of linens and entertainment items. Not a thing was lacking in the kitchen which made meal prep easy. The grandchildren loved the canoes, kayack and swimming off the dock. All agreed it is a great place for a large group. We had a pool tournament downstairs, poker game upstairs and the kids watching a movie in the theatre room. Something for all. Jack was a super host, ready to answer any questions and make suggestions about the area. We highly recommend the property. We do this every two years, we may be back in 2019.

Great spot for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when my nephew got married in Charlotte. Loved being on the lake and in the middle of the state park. Easy access to wedding activities in Charlotte too. There was room for everyone, and the teenage girls created a beauty bar in the master bath. We enjoyed hiking, kayaking and boating. Jack was super helpful too. Great place!

We had the best time staying at Park Place! Beautiful home on a quiet part of the lake with more than enough space for everyone and then some. If I'm back in Lake Norman any time soon this will be my first choice!
