My husband, Todd, and I live in Mooresville, NC (RACE CITY)! We love our time on the lake and enjoy the weather so much! We are from Ohio and still have family up there. But we do not miss the cold weather! Lake Norman has provided us a great place to stay forever!

Alesia Preece - Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why Alesia Preece - Owner chose Lake Norman

This property was originally built as an escape for my husband and I to enjoy, but over the years we have put a lot of money in it and found it financially beneficial to share it with friends and family!

It is the best lot on Lake Norman! It has great views of the lake and gives you a sense of peace and relaxation!

Great screened in porch to watch boaters, read a book or take a nap! The house has surround sound music so you can be on the deck on the dock and enjoy your favorite radio station! The beds are extremely nice and the furnishings are not cheap! You will love your time at Cara's Cottage!

Beautiful property right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

It's a very cozy getaway for a couple or friends - second time staying here. Nice amenities and the decor is absolutely adorable. The best part is the owner. Alesia is more than accommodating and even showed us around to some great spots in the area the first time we visited.

Sparkling cottage sparkling lake relaxing, every comfort, totally enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Cara's Cottage is perfect for one or two couples or a family. Everything plus is there. It is lovely inside and the grounds, back porch, deck on dock, back patio make relaxing and enjoying easy. The kitchen is well stocked, the house immaculate, beds comfortable. we grilled and ate in more than out because the porch and deck dining were divine. Will return.

Cara's Cottage- Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week at Cara's Cottage from may 13th-20th 2017 and all we have to say is Fabulous! It could not have been better. From the time we arrived, to a perfectly clean and very cutely adorned decorated house, we were having fun. We had a wonderful fire pit every night right on the waters edge which was so much fun. We did rent a boat from Lake Effects Boat rental and they delivered the boat right to our dock at Cara's Cottage, so we couldn't have asked for more!

We had a blast here on Lake Norman as Cara's cottage is located in the Isle of Pines location of Mooresville a highly sought after location on lake Norman, close to shopping and many restaurants. Our favorites were the Fresh Chef kitchen and Caruso's. It was easy access to the Harbor Boat Club restaurant by boat since the restaurant was right on the lake and we enjoyed several days riding over there for a great lunch. (The Crab cake salad was excellent.)

We enjoyed our stay on Lake Norman so much we have decided to buy in the Lake Norman area and retire to live the good life! Cara's cottage was instrumental in our wonderful time here at Lake Norman.

Cara's cottage has a wonderful dock space where you can lounge in a very comfortable lounge chair or sit by the waterside and view up the finger of the lake toward the main channel. It has a fabulous view of the Lake. We ate every breakfast on this deck every morning and had several lunches there as well.

We will be sure to come back to Cara's cottage as it is perfect for the both of us and another couple to stay. Our bedroom overlooked the lake and waking up to that view every morning was out of this world. The on suite bathroom was large and spacious and the shower was huge.

The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. We are the kind of travelers that like to use the kitchen on our vacation rentals and Cara's Cottage gave us everything we needed.

Overall we can highly recommend a rental at Cara's cottage. We know we will be back soon!

Wonderful experience and awesome owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to have a Fall getaway. Alesia, the owner, was so easy to work with and very responsive by text. The cottage was adorable with everything you need. The backyard lake area was so serene and private feeling. The sun room was a great place to read, drink wine, etc. We had a lot of rain due to Hurricane Matthew, but the cottage was great for relaxing and reading a few good books (thanks to the owner's collection of books). Everything was so neat and it had modern touches. Alesia was close by if you needed anything, but she gave you privacy. She was friendly and very accommodating. We would highly recommend this (and I am very selective when picking a place). Pictures are very accurate. You'll love the back deck area.
