About the property

Come Relax by the Fireplace

Great 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath cabin with relaxing screened in porch. Sit

and listen to the wonderful sounds of nature. Furnished with a fully

stocked kitchen ready to cook in, BBQ Grill, gas log fireplace

(seasonal), Cable TV, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, microwave,

hair dryer, iron and iron board and deck furniture. The bathroom

includes a shower with a separate tub for relaxation and a large

closet area. A washer and dryer are also provided for your


Please Note: Our cabin is only for responsible adults and

families. There will be absolutely NO HOUSE PARTIES.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we no longer allow pets.

Here is the breakdown of sleeping arrangements:

Living Room:

1 Futon -

1 Sleeper Sofa

Bedroom (on a second level)

1 Queen Bed - Sleeps 2 adults

The cabin is directly on High Rock Lake with a waterfront pier. There are stairs down to the water.

There is a half bath downstairs for your convenience.

Our cabin is a rustic lake cabin in the woods. It is a great cabin for grilling burgers, snuggling on the sofa, and watching a movie during a thunderstorm. However, it will not be fancy.

It will be cozy, and quaint, but it will not be fancy.

There will be crickets chirping, leaves crunching under your feet, and the glorious smell of the crisp fresh air, but it will not be fancy.

We provide complimentary sheets and towels for your use. They will be available in the upstairs closet. We do ask that you wash these prior to your departure, so if time is an issue on your last day, please plan to bring your own. If you prefer anything that “counts thread” you may want to think about bringing your own. (These are also not fancy)

We are always open to feedback on how to improve our rustic cabin in the woods, and are constantly making improvements to keep it comfy and cozy for your stay.

Why Cara Dowling chose North Carolina

This property stole our hearts the second we saw it. We just had to have it. We love coming here ourselves and feel instantly relaxed the second we pull in the driveway!

What makes this cabin unique

Private and tranquil with the comforts of home and the ability to stay connected if you choose!

Guestbook comments from the owner

House was exactly as advertised!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the knotty and nice cabin. It was just what we expected; a comfy cabin with convenient lake access and relaxing scenery. Nice quiet area with nearby shopping and restaurants. I really loved the screened in porch and the chair swing overlooking the lake! There was also a great spot to hang a hammock. We had a great time!

Rustic and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying here and we had a great time. We went to catch fish and they were abundant. We like the fact that this cabin is small, secluded and yet very comfortable. We will most definitely book this rental again

Love this really feels like home for us!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Knotty & Nice, and again loved it. The atmosphere is cozy, comfortable and relaxing. I have 3 children, who love it here. Not one of us wanted to leave! My 14 year old son spent hours on the dock fishing, and my younger two also fished, but dangled their toes in the water and played in the yard. The neighborhood is gorgeous, and very peaceful. We go for a walk every morning. There's also a lot to explore out in town, which you can walk through, enjoying the sites. There just isn't enough I can say about the cabin, or Lexington. I'm thinking you'll love it just as much as we do!

It is very rustic and just what we wanted for out long weekend. Enjoyed the screened in porch and the pier. We spent most of our time outside. Would go back any day!

This place is adorable!!! My friends and I came down from Delaware for a spartan race and decided to make a weekend of it - SO glad I found this place because it was perfect. We cannot wait to come back when it gets a bit warmer so we can really utilize the dock and lake. Only thing I would caution is the stairs are little scary so I would be super nervous with kids, otherwise it has everything you need and is super comfortable. Perfect little getaway for about 4 people.

This was my first experience with Home Away and I will not hesitate to do it again. Everything was exactly as promised and pictured at Knotty and Nice. Cara was easy to get in touch with via text messaging. We enjoyed the view of the lake. Even though it was too cold to enjoy it.
