About Alicia Graham

Both of us grew up near the water -- He lived most of his life on coast of Georgetown and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, whereas I grew up in the tropical islands of the Philippines. After retiring from a busy IT career, I am rekindling my passion for resort/property management by sharing our waterfront family compound on Lake Norman to visiting guests and their families in the area.

Alicia Graham purchased this house in 2007

Why Alicia Graham chose Mooresville

Troutman is a quaint little town on the north side of Lake Norman. We found this 'piece of paradise' as a quick getaway place from the hustle and bustle of work life 17 years ago. Not one moment of regret. The peace and tranquility refreshes our souls after a hard day's work. Why not share this special place with everyone else?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We actually stayed here during Business Meetings being held in Davidson. It was so nice coming home in the evenings to a true "home"! Everything was more than expected and gave us plenty of personal space, but room to get together in the evenings and relax. We all truly enjoyed the house and surroundings!

We have several more trips over next year and will surely be backsoon!! Thanks!

Thanks for the Family Memories

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely lake setting for us to enjoy our extended family reunion. We had a party of 7 adults (including a matriarch of 89) and 8 children. The cottage was perfect for the older cousins to stay in and spend time together. We all enjoyed the upstairs game room in the house playing ping pong and pool. Also enjoyed the kayaks, paddle boat and fishing. Several family members utilized the State park for walking/running.

For us, the best part was sitting outside at night around the fire pit by the lake telling stories, singing, playing games and toasting marshmallows. The cove is very quiet and private, but you are very close to Mooresville if you want to shop or need anything. We also visited the Perth Mini Mart nearby many times for ice, live bait, etc.

We had problems with the television and Jeff came to check it out right away.

We had a great time cooking together in the kitchen. The only things we couldn't find were a can opener and tongs. We brought our own beach towels, just easier. And would recommend bringing your own games. We had a late arrival bring playing cards and Jenga and a few board games, as there were none at the house or at least, we couldn't locate any. And bring water shoes if you like.

All in all, a great house, great location, great owners and a great place to make memories. Thank you, Alicia and Jeff

Lovely home and setting

  • 5 of 5

My college friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Water House. The home was spacious and easily accommodated our party of 10 with no one having to share a bed. We took advantage of the canoe, paddle boat and kayaks as well as the floats. The house was well equipped and we enjoyed hiking in Lake Norman State Park as well as around the neighborhood. The property suited our needs perfectly and I am sure we will plan reunions there in the future.

Great family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family gathering. It is isolated from busy roads and has easy access to the water. Our coffee pot broke and Alicia had a new one to us within minutes. House is clean and we'll decorated
