About Georgia Hayes

We are both natives of Charlotte. We went to rival high schools and then rival colleges before we met after college back in Charlotte. Despite our different views on ACC basketball and football, we both agree on our love for Lake Wylie.

Georgia Hayes purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Georgia Hayes chose North Carolina

I grew up coming to Lake Wylie on the weekends to my parents cabin located very close to Sweetwater. After college I became a General Contractor, renovated their cabin and was able to live there while the renovations took place. (LUCKY ME!) Needless to say- I was hooked! I loved Lake Wylie. I had been looking for a place of my own and jumped at the opportunity when Sweetwater came on the market. The place needed some work, however it had a certain charm that I knew couldn't be passed up. We bought this wonderful cottage, renovated it for a year, and it is now available for rent.

What makes this cottage unique

Easy drive to downtown Charlotte, near Airport, yet a relaxed world away from crowds and noise.

Great lake-front living

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 3 months here enjoying Lake Wylie. I was surprised how fully furnished the kitchen was and the beds, both master and guest, were wonderful! It was so much fun to comb the beach for firewood for our late night campfires and we enjoyed having drinks on the dock while the sun set. Great location - wide view of Lake Wylie while close to restaurants and shopping and I loved the hiking trails.

Perfectly cozy lakeside cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at lake Wylie for Thankgiving! Since we were cooking our feast away from home, it was nice that the kitchen was fully furnished. Kids loved fishing, swinging in the hammock, canoeing, and campfire with s'mores by the lake! Parents loved having 2 separate living spaces so that kids could watch movies downstairs while football games on upstairs. One of our favorite things was playing apples to apples game on the back porch overlooking the lake! Beds were comfortable, plenty of seating for 10 people, and having the extra mattress was helpful! These homeowners have thought of everything! We hope to go back again and stay at Sweetwater Cabin for another great friendsgiving!

Unbelievably comfortable and relaxing. Counting the days until we return!

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome. Every creature comfort and great view of the lake. Great owner, super accommodating!

Close to shopping and restaurants while still surrounded by nature. We entertained friends and found the kitchen and living spaces ideal. The home being dog friendly allowed us to keep the pack together. By far the best VRBO experience we have ever had. Five Stars is not enough. Thank you Georgia.

The best place to stay and view Lake Wiley.

  • 5 of 5

The house is an ideal place to stay with families, couples or yourself. We enjoyed the canoe, rented a pontoon boat, fished, grilled or enjoyed are coffee on the porch. We really enjoyed the walking sidewalks just a step away. It is a 10 minutes to drive to grocery stores and restaurants. The house was clean and had everything we needed. We will be back!

Family Time at Sweetwater

  • 5 of 5

Six people comprised of 3 generations met for a fun and relaxing visit at this cozy, well decorated cottage. We loved suiting on the porch for meal times as well as the dock in the evening. An additional great feature was the cabin's location with respect to Charlotte. Within 15 - 20 minutes you can enjoy excellent restaurants, shopping, entertainment, etc. Owners also very good at providing plenty of information about the area and were available at all times for any questions.
