As you pull down the driveway and take in the 4 mile view of Lake Norman's open channel....you will already feel your vacation has begun. The interior was remodeled five years ago. All new furniture, including sleeper sofas with brand new mattresses, two flat screen televisions, dvd player and Apple TV. A BlueTooth stereo speaker is in the kitchen for your portable listening pleasure. Upstairs, the private loft has a king size bed with premium memory foam mattress and Egyptian cotton sheets. There is also an oversized chair/twin sleeper sofa. On the main level you will find a spacious fully stocked kitchen with large table that can seat 8. There is a small bedroom off the kitchen with a twin trundle bed that will sleep two. The family room has a large flat screen TV and new sleeper sofa. Off the family room is a full bathroom. Walk out onto the brand new deck on the lakefront side of the cabin that stretches across the length of the house, allowing you to soak in the beautiful views and lake breezes for hours. For the 'grillmaster', the brand new stainless steel CharBroil allows you to grill and 'chill' as you cook dinner overlooking the lake. Enjoy coffee, drinks and meals on the new patio furniture. No need to wear your shoes as the flooring of the deck is Trex. The fully finished basement has a brand new queen size bed, as well as a new sleeper sofa situated in the sitting area. Just for fun, there is a foosball table for you to enjoy. Find another full bathroom on this level, equipped with a washer and dryer for your convenience. Walk out the basement door and you are just steps from the firepit (stocked with complimentary wood), the beach area and the dock. Enjoy use of our two paddle boards to soak up the sun and lake breezes, or take a relaxing tour of the lake shoreline in our canoe. Have your morning coffee, or evening glass of wine on the dock taking in serene Lake Norman. You may spot our Blue Heron. Perhaps you just want to relax on a float or noodle that we provide. There is a box with lifejackets located just outside the basement door. Don't forget to take time to nap in one of our hammocks as you listen to the sounds of lake life. Nascar fan? You are just miles from the fun. Want to rent a boat, jet ski, paddle board, Kayak? There are several rental spots and marinas within minutes. Rainy day? Movie theater, shopping and bowling within 15 minutes. In about an hour you can be in the Blue Ridge Mountains. An hour and a half and you will be in pristine Blowing Rock, Linville Falls, Grandfather Mountain and Ashville NC. If you want a little city life...Charlotte is only 29 miles away. Museums, festivals, and Lazy Five ranch for the kiddos... Bonus,* new Publix being built 3 minutes from the cabin!

About Sharon DeVries
Rob, and I (Sharon), are originally from upstate New York. We have been happily married for 22 years. For the last 13 years we have enjoyed living in the beautiful Charlotte area. We have four children ranging from 7 to 20. For years we have enjoyed renting cabins in the mountains and have dreamed of owning a vacation rental of our own on Lake Norman.
Sharon DeVries purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Sharon DeVries chose Lake Norman of Catawba
The recent purchase of this property was an opportunity to bring two of our favorites together.....log cabins and the lake. Log cabins say cozy and relaxing, and the lake says fun and peaceful. Vacations have been a family highlight for the last 20 years. We have had so many wonderful memories renting cabins and vacationing at the beach. We are so excited to have the opportunity to create special vacation memories for many others to come.
What makes this Cabin unique
When we first pulled onto this property, we instantly felt like we were at a vacation spot....the secluded authentic cabin with views of the lake from almost every window. The first thing I imagined was swinging in a hammock down by the dock, watching the children play in the lake. The first thing my husband imagined was building a deck to span the back of the house....and grilling while watching the lake views.

Everything we were looking for
Had great weather enjoyed the lake and was able to check out area. Cabin was clean and had many ammenities
Thanks for your review! We are always open to honest recommendations as to how we can make our property and excellent experience for all our renters!
Very relaxing stay
Our stay at the lakefront cabin was very relaxing. Great views from both the deck and the dock. The cabin was very clean and smelled great when we walked in. The bed is comfortable and the sheets are soft in the loft area. All linens and towels are great and it was nice to have paper products to start our stay instead of no toilet paper which we have seen before elsewhere!
My only suggestion would be a few more pots and pans for cooking. We made dinner instead of going out and the situation there was a little lacking. Otherwise I think the kitchen has everything needed and the K-Cups were a great addition.
Thanks for your review and I appreciate your feedback regarding the cookware. I will be adding some additional pots and pans to our inventory!
Peaceful, Relaxing, Beautiful
The home was extremely beautiful. Right on the lake my family and I enjoyed the peace and quiet and sound of the water was relaxing. We will definitely come back again
The best compliment we can receive is that you will come back again! Thanks for the kind review and hope to see you soon!
The property was stunning! Beautiful view and perfect location.
Took our family vacation here for spring break with our two kids ages 2 and 11.. the whole family had a blast! We traveled about 11 hours and it was worth every minute! Watching the beautiful sunrise every morning from the private dock was amazing and my favorite. My 11 year old LOVED the paddle boards. We drove our boat there so waking up and hopping on our boat was great being that we were able to dock it right outside the cabin! The owner, Sharon was extremely helpful and overly accommodating. I probably asked her 10 questions the week before our trip and she responded to everything and always told me to contact her with any more I had.The grocery store 3 miles from the cabin was marvelous. Such a friendly town, not a far drive from the theme park we visited. We had plans to travel to more nearby places for actives and ended up staying at the cabin and on the boat. The fire pit was great for unwinding and enjoying the peaceful nights. We have definitely found our future yearly family vacation spot!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review, Stacey. Nothing makes me happier than to hear that our cabin made for such a great family vacation experience! Please do come back again!!
Better in person!
Awesome lakefront cabin with private dock! Easy boat rental for the week. Convenient to town. Clean cozy cabin. Fire pit a big bonus! Very tranquil! Owner very friendly and accommodating!
We just returned for a weekend trip here - two families with kids ranging from 4- 8. It was a fantastic time in the perfect little place near Charlotte. The reviews are spot on, the attention to detail and super responsive, flexible and easy to work owners are just perfect. Canoeing and making s'mores was a highlight!
We literally just got home and already planning how to return. Our 8 year olds did not want to leave claiming 'but we are home already, why leave?" And, best of all, for the first time since I can remember they did not ask us for technology for entertainment. By all metrics a total success. Thank you!!
