About the property

Newly Renovated & Upgraded! Home has 2 Huge Living Rooms and 3 Porches


This waterfront home is nestled on the shores of Lake Wylie in Charlotte, NC. It's one of the rare properties on the lake with its’ own sprawling private beach - ideal for young children and families to enjoy. This 4000sqft family-style home boasts 5 bedrooms (4 king & 1 queen) and 4 full baths making it a perfect get-away vacation. The huge open-concept living room, dining room, and kitchen is ideal for the big family gathering or event.

Located just 20 mins from uptown Charlotte, this home is convenient to all the surrounding area has to offer (mall, restaurants, grocery, marina are all less than 5 minutes from the house). Even though you are close to retail shops and malls, you'll escape from the busy world when you drive down our 1/2 mile wooded gravel road that only serves 4 homes.


This house is one of the only lake homes around Charlotte with a Pontoon Boat available to rent for the duration of your stay - No more need to pay $400/day to rent from the Marina only to stress out about getting it back before 4PM to avoid late fees. Boating should be a relaxing and fun experience --- Take the boat out when you want -- not when you are tethered to a reservation that may turn out to be a rainy day. This was the most common request from our renters so that's why I collaborated with a local Commercial Boat Rental company to give you the option to rent the boat at the end of our dock. Our 14 passenger, 24 foot, 115HP Bennington comes fully equipped with life jackets and all the equipment you need to have a fun and safe boating experience! Just ask me in your inquiry if you are interested :) The lake is huge -- full of beautiful houses, on the water restaurants with boat parking (T-Bones!), and tons of cool Sand Bars and islands to hang out on -- EXPLORE IT!


The yard is simply gorgeous with large beautiful trees separating you from any neighbors. Enjoy lunch outside or just watch the kids play on beach from the huge tree-shaded deck overlooking lake. Or turn on the warm café-style lighting and enjoy a glass of wine after the sun sets. Walk past the hammock to a new boat dock perfect for laying out, tanning, fishing, jumping in the lake, or just relaxing and hanging out on the comfy Pontoon Boat... listening to your music on the Bluetooth stereo, looking out at the cove with a cold one in your hand.


The bottom level of the home is the huge open-concept family room with lots of seating, a new 60 inch smart TV with DVR and Netflix, a long dining room table, wine fridge, and a FULLY stocked kitchen with dishes, glassware, pot and pans, appliances, and a center island with seating. The top level of the home features a huge living room with windows overlooking another large deck and the lake.


There are 4 bedrooms upstairs 3 full baths (including the spacious king-sized Master Bedroom Suite that overlooks the lake). The 5th bedroom is also a king bed w/ it's own full bath located downstairs. Each of the bedrooms are spacious and private. All towels and linens are provided and washed for you after your stay (guests are welcome to use washer/dryer).


Explore the lake on our 2 stand-up Paddle Boards, sit-in fishing kayak, or in our 3 person canoe (just don't forget to wear a life jacket!) We provide 15+ life jackets of all sizes in a deckbox on the dock. We want you to use them!! Be safe out there :) There is a comfy covered patio area right outside the family room complete with seating and a large stainless steel propane grill. The house is equipped with High-speed broadband Wi-Fi internet that works all the way down to the beach.

This home has Dish Network (200+ HD Channels including HBO, Cinemax, and all ESPN channels) on its’ three flat screen TV’s. You can access the high speed wireless internet from anywhere on the property. The TV’s are located in the living room upstairs, master bedroom, and den downstairs. We provide a DVD player, "old school" SNES and N64 video consoles & games, and tons of popular card and board games.

About David Gaskin

My name is David, I'm the co-owner and manager of the house. I'm newly married and work in Commercial Real Estate. I own the house with my 2 brothers (Reed - 33, David - 31, and Ross - 29). I love travelling, football, technology and gadgets, water sports, and experiencing the world! I take pride in my city and state, so I'm always urging people to experience as much of it when they visit from out of town. There are so many cool things to experience in Charlotte - get out there and enjoy it!

David Gaskin purchased this house in 2013

Why David Gaskin chose South Carolina

All 3 brothers live in Charlotte and grew up spending our summers here since 1987. During the recession, our family was about to lose this wonderful house so we decided to take out a mortgage and buy it together to keep it in the family. Then we updated, upgraded, renovated, repainted, recarpeted, reroofed, and refurnished the entire house with the hope to rent with vacationers like you. Renters are the reason our family and children can continue to enjoy this house for years to come.

What makes this house unique

We are one of the only rental properties on the lake that has a pontoon boat conveniently parked at the dock that is available to rent. Our house is only 20 minutes from uptown Charlotte (Close enough that Uber works in our area too!) , and minutes from Carowinds theme park and located in a quiet, secluded cove. We are also very close to the US National Whitewater Center which is one of the coolest attractions in Charlotte in my opinion.

We are also 2 minutes down the road from McDowell Nature Center and Preserve:

The Best VRBO My Family Has Rented in 5 years

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the past 5 years I have organized a family vacation at a waterfront location. Three have been on the NC Outer Banks and two have been on the Chesapeake Bay. This year, in order to stay closer to home, I rented this property on the western tip of Charlotte, NC, at Lake Wylie. (a 15 minute drive to Charlotte International Airport).

This is the first year all of the generations in the family exclaimed that this home was their favorite. I taught my sister's grandchildren how to fish while their parents used the kayaks and paddle boards. We all took a long hike in the McDowell Nature Preserve. Folks were swimming and fishing and tent camping in the reserve. It's huge. No crowding. All this was about a mile from this rental home.

At the home, you feel like you are far from civilization. It is so quiet. You can sit on the patio and listen to the birds, watch the geese, smell the azaleas and rhododendrons. But how about grocery shopping, etc.? It is only a five minute drive to 4 huge grocery stores. There are boat rentals a mile away and the Gaskins have a new pontoon boat they rent out.

Oh, and many of you will like that when it is time to check out, you just make sure you get all your own stuff out and that all is tidy. The Gaskins hire a wonderful cleaning crew. We will definitely return next year.

Over The Top

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely remarkable. The view of the lake is stunning, the layout of the home is perfect for a large group, the beds were comfortable, and everything was stocked perfectly, from linens to silverware. The house was very clean and well taken care of. We rented the home for a gathering for our mother's 85th birthday, and the surroundings added so much to the event. The fireplace, piano, comfortable furniture ... I could go on and on. And working with the owner was delightful. Looking forward to the next family gathering in North Carolina (hopefully this home will be available).

Beautiful place to spend quality time all year long

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely thrilled with the house. We were there in the winter for a weekend getaway with a large group of friends to celebrate a milestone birthday right. The views and location on the lake were amazing, we all said we'd like to come back in the summer months sometime. The space was perfect. The bedrooms were all large and there were several king beds. The living room upstairs became the kids area and gathering area when we were heading out to eat or the game. We had a lot of fun reliving our childhoods playing Super Nintendo with the kids. The downstairs couldn't have had a better layout. There was ample space for us to all hang out together and be comfortable. It was also nice that the hang out area and the bedrooms aren't on the same level...we didn't wake that kids once! Lol. The location was also wonderful, we were pretty much 15-20 minuted from anywhere we wanted to go.

If you are looking for a home in a beautiful location that has room for everyone to be comfortable while spending quality time together, this is your matter what time of year it is. I'm sure in the summer this place would be much fun for the kids...but even in the winter it's perfect. We found several breweries and unique restaurants close by and the stadium was very easy to get to as well.

I also liked the condition of the house. It was very nice but not so nice you couldn't relax and enjoy yourself. It was perfect!

November 2016 Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this lakefront home for the month of November. We were very happy with the accommodations....we were comfortable spending most of our time downstairs where we had access to the kitchen and dining room. We slept upstairs...all of the furniture was comfortable! And I loved the large fireplace, having a fire many of the nights of the last 2 weeks of our stay. Weather was great...60's and 70's the first two weeks, then dropping down to the 60's towards the end of November. Our children and grandchildren arrived for the last week of our stay, spending the Thanksgiving holiday here on the lake in Charlotte. We all loved the pontoon was just a lot of fun and sometimes quiet relaxation. The fishing was pretty good husband caught a 20 pound catfish one evening! Grandchildren were catching smaller bream and very excited every time they had a tug on their pole. David was most helpful in helping us in any way that he could. I highly recommend this property.

Our Greatest Weekend NFL Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our 11th straight annual weekend NFL trip and by far our best one yet. This home has that homie fill in the woods and on the lake that was great. We got some fishing in, which was a change from our normal routine on our trip. We all had a great time (12 of us). Will rent this place again if ever back in Charlotte area!!!

Dunbar Family Union at Lake Wylie Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The entire family absolutely loved the lake house. The down stairs was perfect for my parents who are elderly and have a hard time getting around. The property was clean and well-maintained. The view of the lake was fantastic.

The customer service from the owner has been excellent. I would recommend this property to friends and family and I would rent the property again.

I rented the lake house for a family reunion. My family came from Louisiana, Florida, Indiana and various cities in North Carolina. The entire family was very impressed with the property. Our favorite item in the house is a picture of the owners as children explaining a little background concerning the property. We did not venture out to eat. We cooked in the kitchen and enjoyed home made meals and each other.
