I decided to rent the home as a vacation rental to allow me to enjoy the lake while in town. I am working on the needs of my renters and welcome any views they can provide. Please take the time to read many reviews. I am a Realtor in North and South Carolina and would love to help anyone that is moving to the area. I love to meet new people so I hope to meet you on your stay. I also enjoy short vacations to other VRBO properties when we can get away. You will enjoy the peaceful surroundings at my lake rental located only within 12 miles from downtown Charlotte for a really nice dinner, attraction, movie, theater or event. There is a new outlet shopping center 10 miles away the Charlotte Premium Outlets just off of I-485 in south Charlotte. The outlet just opened and includes 100 stores.
Linda purchased this House in 2004
Why Linda chose Harbor House
My lake house may be small, my welcome is BIG. Beautiful lakefront views, boat slip and pier of over 180 feet, just few miles to downtown Charlotte, and over 100 outlet stores close to property but far enough not to get caught in the traffic. Airport is less than 6 miles (Charlotte Douglas).
What makes this House unique

Carowinds is 13 miles from home, Charlotte Douglas Airport is less than 6 miles away. Nascar Hall of Fame is 11 miles away, Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont is very close,

Great communication, well maintained, wonderful location. Was staying during home renovations. Turned into a vacation of sorts. Quiet neighbors and grocery close, too
Great to hear back from my guest. I am so pleased that he could enjoy the stay.
Visit to Charlotte during hurricane
Our stay at Nana's lakefront Pad was wonderful. Well, it was marred somewhat by a power oiutage caused by the hurricane. But after rwo days the power was back on and then it was great. The house was clean and itdy and nicely set-up. We did not go down to the pier - it is down a steep incline and we are not that agile. The driveway is large enough for 2 or 3 cars. The entry way is a bit awkward - sideways from the driveway up three steps, then the door swings out to you. Inside there are two nice sized bedrooms with walk-in closets, two bathrooms with tub and shower, a large open diningroom-livingroom combined. Plenty of storage space. The kitchen was well equipped with all that we needed. The outdoor screened-in porch overlooking the lake is beautiful. Linda was very helpful and gracious. The houise is conveniently located - close to I 85 and I 485, the airport, and Billy Graham Parkway.
These were two wonderful guest and I appreciated them understanding the power outage due to hurricane Florence. Idid notice a tree just up the road that was over a power line. I have to say outages and hurricanes coming this far in are very rare but I know with the weather anything is possible.
The home is located on a little steep hill but that was on purpose so flooding would be impossible. I also can't swim and have a fear of water.
I offered an extended at no charge to make up for the outage but they had prior plans.
I did try to find a generator but that was impossible due to the storm hitting both Carolinas.
It is my hope this nice couple are able to come back very soon.
Wonderful! Nothing to want for and certainly the cleanest place i have EVER stayed! Would go back in a heart beat and Linda could not be more helpful and considerate!
I am so pleased to learn that all was well. I try hard to remember each detail when cleaning for a good experience for all guests.
Shhhh! Let's keep this as our little secret.
