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.
ON-SITE PONTOON BOAT NOW AVAILABLE:
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 - 34, David - 33, and Ross - 30). 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 Mecklenburg County
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: http://charmeck.org/mecklenburg/county/ParkandRec/StewardshipServices/NaturePreserves/Pages/McDowell.aspx Check out all that Charlotte has to offer if you are looking for some cool activities during your stay: http://www.charlottesgotalot.com/spring-break

Wonderful and peaceful house in the lake
We absolutely loved the house, all well decorated with class and spacious rooms and living rooms, love the furniture and all the decor. We had no problems at all and had an amazing time. We will be back and this time for a week. Very satisfying
Fantastic and serene home on Lake Wylie with a boat and Dock!!
Absolutely loved our stay in this spacious home. Tons of room for friends and family. The home is nestled in a cove on the lake and has beautiful decks outside to enjoy! The pontoon boat was a blast and our weather was perfect. The owners communication was excellent. Truly enjoyed this unique property!!!
The view is beyond relaxing!!!
We had 10 family members that had the pleasure of staying at the Gaskin’s home while in town for a family wedding. It was very clean, well stocked, and everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were! We made use of all of the living spaces including the outdoor patio area when we grilled out one evening. Several family members took turns with the kayaks and paddle boards. One of my daughter-in-laws even put the hammock to use. A relaxing enjoyable weekend was had by all and we greatly appreciate the Gaskins sharing this beautiful family home with all of us.
Great property for all - the water enthusiast, the suntanned, the book reader, the entertainer.
House is well stocked, comfortable and clean. House flow is perfect for large groups like our family. Beautiful setting. Would highly highly recommend it ! It was the hit of our family weekend. Sooooo glad we found this property.
The house was just as advertised, great layout and we had fun on the beach. We definitely will be coming back.
