Beautiful location on the Lake
The location on the Lake was just perfect. Very private. We brought our two dogs and they had plenty of room to run and swim. The water was clear and warm and the lake was shallow for a long way out. Kayaks were much appreciated and a lot of fun. We completed the 1000 piece puzzle during the time we were inside during the hurricane. We felt completely safe. The home is in need of updating with some deferred maintenance issues, but we had everything we needed for our stay.
Beautiful, perfect view, but felt dirty
The house was great, exactly what I expected, the dock, fire pit, and lake were like a dream, and we enjoyed every moment out there. We all loved kayaking, fishing, roasting marshmallows, and I appreciated that there were kid-size kayaks and paddles; my kids loved them, and I loved the tubes/rafts that were available there to float in the lake on. That was all absolutely perfect!
The only drawback was that the cleaning company clearly doesn’t do a very good job. There are cobwebs everywhere, inside and outside along the house on the porch, dirt literally caked on the wall around light switches, dirty marks all on the walls and doors, and it seemed like the floor was just swept, not mopped before we got there - or they just didn’t do a very thorough job at mopping. There were dirty dishes in the dishwasher (it had soap, so just never got run), and many more little things like that, that just add up to feeling unclean, and therefore uncomfortable. It left me wondering if the linens were actually clean, and feeling like I needed to wash everything before we used it. With that size house, and a $150 cleaning fee, it should actually be spankin’ clean, like the cleaning company’s name suggests...but it should be renamed “Semi-clean” or “Sub-par clean”.
So I would give down by the lake a 5, but based on how dirty it felt to be near/in the house, I’d give it like a 2. The house itself is like a 4...update the cleaning company, and overall it would be significantly better! ...and I’m not even a clean freak.
As long as you know this going into it, and are prepared to clean some on your vacation, I absolutely recommend it! Also, the owner was great to work with, and had very prompt response times. We overall very much enjoyed it, and are grateful for our time there!
Great Location on the lake
We love this place. This was our second stay here, and certainly not our last. The only bad thing I can say is that the weekends go by to fast! Everything that you need for a getaway to the lake is included. You won't find a better place for the price on lake Norman. We are already looking forward to next summer!
This place was wonderful!
We really enjoyed our stay here! The location, the view and the house was fantastic! Will definitely be planning another trip here in the future!
We certainly look forward to the return visits by these nice folks, and we keep working on making the place even better.
Always a good time at Cozy Cottage
We have rented from Dr. Hutchins many times and we are always happy! Every year there is a new renovation. Great place to relax.
Cozy yet roomy. It was perfect for our family.
The cozy cottage gave us the opportunity to enjoy the lake right in the back yard. We enjoyed the small rafts and water toys that came with the property. We even had friends over for some lake time. It was a wonderful experience.
Lake Norman has 529 miles of shoreline, and it is a fun place for boating and sailing, and our cove is great for water skiing.
