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.

Our home is only about 20 minutes from the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Such a great getaway! The owners have thought of everything to make your stay stress free. From labeling all the switches to details instructions in a book. Plenty of supplies if you run out of trash bags or toilet paper. The decks are amazing to relax and eat. I even had an afternoon nap and didn't wake up sweating. The breeze from the water is incredible! Few tips: bring bikes or running shoes, there's a cool sidewalk near the house. Rent a boat because you'll really want one. Other than that, amazing! We will be back.

Loved it!!

  • 4 of 5

This property is perfect! We absolutely loved the layout of the home and it's location. So impressed with the location and home that we have already requested the same week for next year. Typically we are OBX people and this was our first lake adventure and it was everything we hoped for and more! Still have a lot to see and do in the lake...looking forward to next year!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Lovely well kept updated cottage with a great view and lots to do. We especially enjoyed the great kitchen, large porch to eat and hang out in. Bedrooms and baths were perfect with great linens, brightly painted walls and comfortable beds. Lots of storage room in both bedrooms and kitchen.

We loved the dock with seating to watch the sunset, and sandy beach with fire pit. And of course access to the canoe.

Its located close good hiking trail, and of course good places to eat like "Tbones" on the lake or a quick run into Charlotte itself. And may I recommend "Kings Kitchen" downtown, as a non profit restaurant with Great food and location. The owner Georgia was very welcoming and helpful no matter the question Thanks again for the great place!

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!
