About Sara Stroup Hatton

We purchased the cottage to have someplace for our children to retreat from the city and enjoy life on the lake. The calm, the quiet of the water. They have had a great time, swimming, wakeboarding, fishing, water skiing, surfing.

Sara Stroup Hatton purchased this house in 2006

Why Sara Stroup Hatton chose Denver

Clean, well appointed home right on the water gives you the feeling of being away on one of the largest lakes in the region. We loved it due to the proximity of the water, accessibility to marinas, and all major amenities.

What makes this house unique

Our home is situated just off the main channel in a cove that provides calmer waters. Wide expansive views going across the lake give you the feel of just how immense Lake Norman actually is.

Enjoy the BBQ and the sun as it slowly dips down over the horizon lingering long enough to cast long shadows. The privacy of the cove affords the comfort and luxury of being able to sit back

Do yourself a favor!!

  • 5 of 5

Sara and Terry have thought of everything!! Just bring your bathing suit and you will not need anything else. Sara was a dream to work with from the very first communication- in fact, I now feel like we are old friends who have never even met. The house and property are immaculate yet comfortable and so relaxing. If our kids did not have to start school we would have found a way to stay - we would even have slept in the shed! DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND STAY HERE!

Owner's Response: Beth I don't know what to say. Thank you for such a wonderful review on your stay at the lake house. I too feel we are old friends. Hopefully you will come back and we will get to meet, but in the meantime, lets stay in touch!. I really do enjoy getting to know the people who rent from us and we try our best to make you feel like you are at your own place with all the amenities from home. You are too funny about "even staying in the shed". At one time we were going to turn that space into a play area when the kids were little. Thank you again for renting our place and giving it such a wonderful review. I very much enjoyed working wth you....PS: glad you had a great day out on the lake skiing! Until we meet again! Sara and Terry

Awesome Lake Norman Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful home for one month. It was a great Denver location near shopping, restaurants, and Charlotte. The property was very clean and well-maintained. Sarah was very accommodating to our needs and always available for any questions or concerns. The kitchen was well stocked and even included an electric grill, crockpot, and individual drink blender. Our two teenage sons enjoyed using the kayaks as well as fishing off the dock. We highly recommend this VRBO and hope to return in the future. A special thanks to the owners Sara and Terry. Your VRBO really felt like a home away from home!

Owner's Response: MaryGrace thank you so much for your comments. I am so glad your family had a great stay at the lakehouse. Hopefully now that Tyler is staying in Charlotte, we will use it a little more. Good luck in your house hunting in Denver. Sara PS: Thank you for the extra keys you had made.

Perfect week away

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely and has so many wonderful features! A deck for dining that has shade all day long, a screened-in porch for bug free outdoor conversations, a dock to tie your boat up to, a kitchen with a wide array of appliances for cooking if you choose, an open floor plan for those times when you're inside, kayaks and games available for use. There's a boat rental marina close by and Charlotte isn't far if you have a rainy day. We enjoyed Escape Kings escape rooms, the Funny Bus and Top Golf while we were there as well as nice dinners out. The location on Lake Norman, the proximity to Charlotte, and the welcoming and comfortable home made this our best vacation to Lake Norman so far!

Owner's Response: Ella thank you for that great review! I am glad you and your family had a wonderful time at the Lake House.... you certainly had good weather. Sounds like you also were able to visit Charlotte. Vacationing on Lake Norman and where we are located in Denver allows you to be in Charlotte in 30 mins. Sounds like you had a great time in Charlotte too. Ella, thanks again for watering my flowers and giving me some great suggestions and references for my flower beds! Sara and Terry

Fabulous! Great week spent on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful. The bedrooms were comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed, the porch was great and the lake access was perfect. Easy to get a boat, kayaks or just floating tubes in and out. Friendly owners who want to ensure your stay meets expectations.

Beautiful views, lovely home,

  • 5 of 5

Sara and Terry offered their lake house for our family traveling from Toronto to Florida. We only get to see them when we make this trip. It was perfect for us. The house has every amenity you could ask for. The dock has sun all day and beautiful sunsets. Can't wait to make the trip next year and stay on Lake Norman.
