One of our families greatest weekends.

  • 5 of 5

We found this rental a wonderful place to celebrate the graduation of one of our grandchildren and the 0 ending birthday of the the oldest family member. Three generations of each of the grandchild's parents were able assemble at one place for a weekend of fun and fellowship. Ages were from 7 to 70 and all enjoyed a GREAT, GREAT weekend. The photos here greatly understate this rental. All has been considered. Unlike many of our previous rentals, this kitchen was FULLY equipped. We will definitely use this house again.

Gorgeous house that sits right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house for 3 years now. It is a great home that is well stocked with anything you could need. The kitchen has shelves full of spices and every utensil imaginable. The dock is beautiful and using the kayaks on the lake is always one of my favorite things. The movie theatre is very nice. Overall really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to other people.

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!
