About Randy and Carla Holt

I grew up in Stanly County, I inherited this property from my mother. We went to Schools in Stanly County. Really want to pass this property on to my kids and grandkids.

Randy and Carla Holt purchased this house in 2005

Why Randy and Carla Holt chose Mt Gilead

This area offers everything: golf, fishing, antiquing, State Parks, National Parks, restaurants, spas, swimming, fishing, boating. Most of all this is a peaceful place that I come to just to relax and clear my head. Great place to write a book, or just be lazy! Great place for a romantic getaway. Enjoy a glass of wine (from one of the area wineries) and take in that spectacular view.

What makes this house unique

The love of the outdoors is what makes this place special. There is a a telescope for viewing wild life, Bald Eagles are a popular site in this area as well as deer, wild turkey, and many water fowl. I love all the water sports, swimming, water skiing, boating and I included a paddle boat for all to enjoy.

House is dated needed renovating

  • 2 of 5

Over all great location house needs work funning odor downstairs.

  • Submitted: Sep 18, 2017
  • Stayed: September 2017

Owner's Response: This home is a get-away for our family. We share this home with families like yours. Not everyone has the same taste. This home is furnished with antiques, because my husband and I collect antiques. I like mid century modern. We have gone to great lengths to keep the house furnished as so. The photos in the ad are exactly as the home is, nothing has been changed. We do have modern amenities such as mattresses, pillows, towels and bed linens (Which we keep up dated for our guests comfort.), washer and dryer, various gaming tables, even a telescope. I"m sorry that the decor is not one that you would have chosen. As far as the house needs work. There is not one thing inside the home that is not in working order. We are currently making some renovations on the outside. In order to do this, it is done in between bookings. I have plug ins through out the home which is probably making the odors downstairs. I do hope you were comfortable and I hope you had a great time on Lake Tillery.

Great location but could use some repairs outside

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The location is terrific. The house was a bit small for 8 people but we made do. The patio ceiling, railing and dock could use a few repairs. Plenty of outside furniture. Owners s are very responsive.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time. The house is 1500 square feet with 4 bedrooms. We tend to keep inside repaired and up to standards which can lead to neglect on outside of home. Next up dates are new paddle boat and canoes. Then we will start on outside home repairs. Thanks for you input.

Very nice place on Lake Tillery

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed five days on the lake, staying at this property. The home is a bit older but has been kept well and is very clean. Very nice owners. The view is beautiful and the dock, with the upper decks, is great. My children enjoyed fishing and we all enjoyed the large front porch.
