About Alesia Preece - Owner

I am a Real Estate Professional - let me know if you are interested in buying, selling or renting a home on or around Lake Norman! Call Alesia@ 704-609-7468 Cross Pointe Realty.

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

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.

Lovely peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at Cara's Cottage while receiving some medical treatment. The area was peaceful and quiet, which was just what the doctor ordered. The home was lovely with all of the amenities I could ask for. Great views from everywhere in the house. I ate breakfast on the wonderful screened porch every morning enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. Enjoyed kayaking using the equipment graciously provided. Everything was perfect!

Perfect week

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a house right on the water with plenty of amenities, person dock, grill, fire pit, kayaks, screened in back porch to keep the bug away, great restaurants, and comfortable beds to name a few. We were about to rent a boat and keep at dock all week. Caught a ton of spotted bass. Had a great vacation thanks

Perfect vacation spot. The cottage is adorable and offers everything you need. Dock space was great for our rental boat and perfect for swimming and fishing. We had such a nice time. Thank you!

Best place in the history of ever to hang out with friends and family and just RELAX!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful cottage! It is small, but so expertly appointed. And the outdoor space is wonderful! Fire pit was the favorite of my husband and kids, friends loved the kayaks and dock, and I spent as much time as possible on the screened porch. Unfortunately, I was required to spend time cooking, but the kitchen was nice and the grill enormous, so it was easy and fun. Also, we had everything we needed. The only way the place could be better is if the refrigerator came stocked with beer. Will definitely stay again.

The listing was accurate (and understated, I'd say) and the hints on what to bring were very helpful. The owners were very easy to communicate with and we were able to check in and out with ease.

Perfect House for a Small Family get together!

  • 5 of 5

Very accommodating. House was clean and had everything we needed to have a great Mothers Day weekend! Boat deck was perfect for our pontoon boat we rented to be dropped off. Did a little fishing and sat at fire pit with the family later that evening. Would stay again!
