Overview

About the property

Recently remodeled lakefront cabin on quiet 1/2 acre lot, three bedroom, 2 bath

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.

The property was stunning! Beautiful view and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Charming and quaint cabin with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed everything about this cabin. The place was well stocked with all the necessities, the beds were very comfortable, and location was great. We even spent a night by the fire pit which was fun. I highly recommend this for 4-6 guests.

A beautiful log cabin on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing vacation at Lake Norman in this beautiful log cabin home. The cabin was clean and cozy and had all the conveniences of home such as a great kitchen, Kurig with K-Cups, a smores basket, firewoood for the awesome fire pit. The cabin is so homey with comfy furniture and beds and large flat screen TVs. Sharon and Rob provided a binder full of information about the area. The outside was just beautiful! A great dock, hammocks, canoe and paddle boards. Our family had an amazing time! Sharon and Rob were available and easy to communicate with when we had questions! Restaurants and the grocery store were all close by. Even the neighbors next door were lovely and welcoming. We highly recommend this cabin without hesitation! We will definitely return! Thank you so much Sharon and Rob for such a wonderful vacation home and for your kindness and hospitality!

Am amazing 2 week vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and dock were perfect for a relaxing vacation. Everything was clean and in excellent working order. My family was disappointed that we couldn't return this past summer. Hopefully, we will be back again soon. I miss relaxing on the dock and swimming in the warm lake. Thank you (a year later) for an amazing stay that we still talk about!!!!
