Wonderful rental experience.

  • 5 of 5

The property was comfortable, clean and well stocked. The beds were very comfortable as was the living room furniture. Enjoyed sitting on the back porch overlooking the lake. What a beautiful view. The owner experienced a heating issue prior to our rental. He expedited the repair. True to his word, we were warm and cozy.

Super quiet, very private

  • 5 of 5

We really loved the cabin. Its very hidden. I wish the temps were better during our stay, the dock and lake looked wonderful. The screened in porch is really nice as well. It was in the 30s during our visit, so we didn't really get to enjoy all that we could have. We have another wedding coming up in the spring, I could certainly see renting it again. My wife suggests having more blankets in the cabin, I was never cold...

The house was represented accurately.

  • 4 of 5

The house served our purpose of our families getting together. Although I knew before hand with families it would have been nice to have a washing machine - the master bath had a leak in the sink - the master bedroom needed more light - overhead light very dim.

We rated the house 7-8 on a scale of 10 (10 being good).

Thank you

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. For future reference, there is a washer/dryer in the utility room on the porch, and a remote dimmer for the master bedroom light. I hope you get a chance to visit again. Bill

About William Lawson

My brothers and I inherited Mom's Cabin from our parents in 2013. It is where we spent our summers growing up, and where we have many lasting memory's. We all have separate lives now, but hope there are other families that can create new memory's at this special place.

William Lawson purchased this cabin in 1960

What makes this cabin unique

A large, wrap around, screened-in porch greets you when you first walk in. The views of the lake are fantastic. A short walk to the dock and relaxing plunge into Lake Wylie. Close to Charlotte, Fort Mill, and Rock Hill.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Dear Mom's Cabin,

We were excited to come visit Lake Wylie for the weekend, but little did we know the magic we would find here. This cabin is GREAT! And was perfect for our group. We were able to relax and enjoy the gift of our friendship, with a beautiful backdrop everywhere we looked. We hope to return soon, we love it here!

Thanks again,

Our group"
