Waterfront Getaway Cottage on Beautiful Badin Lake! Priced to Please

Summer is approaching fast at the Kepley Cottage. Soon the water temperatures will be just right for a dip in the lake to cool yourself from summer sun rays. Now is the time to get going on planning your summer vacation or weekend getaway at our favorite place in the world. Located 50 minutes or less from Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston Salem, our cozy cottage is perfect for family vacations, a couples weekend away, or a reunion with old friends.

Two queen beds and one full bathroom make our cottage the perfect size for small groups. One renovated bathroom and full sized, fully equipped eat in kitchen overlooking the lake. All kitchen appliances, two flat screen TV's with DISH network service. Spacious front deck with outdoor furniture, charcoal grill, and large outdoor dining table leading down to a hot tub. The newly re-built back deck leads down to an over sized dock where we spend all of our time either swimming, setting sail, fishing or taking in the beautiful evening views of Badin Lake. You can view the night sky as never before while relaxing in our hot tub or telling stories around our newly finished fire pit.

Amenities include: Fully equipped kitchen, four top dining table, hot tub, 2 flat screen TV's, DISH network, 2 outdoor dining tables, dock, charcoal grill, fire pit, portable radio with auxiliary hookup, large lot, linens, towels and coolers provided.

Badin Lake offers something for everyone. For those looking for adventure, rent a pontoon boat at nearby Fish Tales Marina, or go hiking through the Uwharrie National Forest. Take a 30 minute drive to the North Carolina Zoo, or Sea grove to experience famous North Carolina pottery. Located less than 30 minutes from Tot Hill Farm, one of North Carolina's finest golf courses, and less than an hour from Grandover and Pinehurst, our cottage is the perfect location for a golfer's getaway. We also welcome those of you visiting our great state for the High Point Furniture Market. For those of you wanting to relax, just kick back on our dock, cue the tunes and take in the sunshine.

Unlike most vacation rentals, we supply paper towels, toilet paper, body wash, towels, bed linens, coffee filters, and even firewood for your convenience.

About Matthew Kepley

Nikki and I met in high school but never dated until college. I played baseball at Catawba College and Nikki started her career as a cosmetologist in Raleigh, NC. After tying the knot in October of 2011 we began saving for our dream home. We figured it would be years before we were able to go shopping for a place on Badin Lake. However, by some miracle, we came across this little cottage and fell in love.

Matthew Kepley purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Matthew Kepley chose Badin Lake

We are weekend warriors. After working hard all week we pack up the Jeep and take off to anywhere fun and exciting. We had been visiting friends at Badin Lake for 5 years until we decided it was time to stop crashing on couches and find our own place. Out of all the places we have been, this is our favorite by far.

Cozy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! Place was nice and convenient to everything. We had a lot of fun hiking the mountain and using paddle boats in the lake. When I did not understand directions, owners were also nice enough to walk us through the steps to set up the Jacuzzi.

Had a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling place on the lake! The decor of this home is very charming. It is clean and well cared for. We had a great time. The home is small, with the second bed being in the family room, but it was so worth it to be on the lake. We stopped in daily at the general store for fish and worms and fished every day. The kids loved it. We also built a fire one evening and made smores.

Very comfortable cottage for the three of us

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our Thursday and Friday visit. We used it as a base to go hiking at Morrow Mountain and other such activities. So, we were not there much during the day. But it was very comfortable and enjoyable in a beautiful location. I can see a later Spring or Summer visit in our plans.

Relaxing atmosphere with great outdoor amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The kitchen is very well stocked and the decorations are very on trend. The instructions on where to find items was clear. I also took advantage of the library and very much enjoyed my selection of The Lovely Bones.

I agree with the previous review that the bathroom window needs a cover as it is directly across from the neighbors window and in full view of both the deck and the driveway.

Not a complaint, just a note. There is a larger than normal step between the kitchen and living room. It was difficult to navigate for my toddler and might be difficult for someone with mobility issues.

Another suggestion is to label the ceiling fan remotes, add them to the instruction list (we just happened upon them) and make sure there are batteries in all of them. We didn't really need the fan in November, but would have appreciated using the light by itself.

All in all, we got just what we were looking for a relaxing holiday weekend to recharge!
