Why Jack Greene chose North Carolina

BIG WATER meets your pier, lawn, boathouse and ramp. Outdoor activities abound: water sports, hiking or mountain biking at your front and back doors. Half mile off your shore is an island where the great blue herons have had a rookery the last two summers. Another, smaller island, just as close is where osprey have nested for the last ten years. Walking by the lake shore you will have your own private wooded park with natural beaches, fishing spots and coves. Watching the Sun set behind the herons with its long tongue of fire dancing on the water brings your day to a sigh.

What makes this house unique

You will never get tired of viewing the lake. Its almost like a living thing, almost always moving, changing color, form, mood.

Then there is the park that surrounds you with its hiking and biking trails, largest public beach on the lake, free boat launch, picnic areas and community building, park office and nature center. and have canoes and paddle boats for rent.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

12 of our friends rented Jack's house for a long labor day weekend and it was nothing short of perfect. The house has a great layout and comes with everything you might need. The kayaks and canoe that come with the property are in great shape. Although we never wanted to leave the house, there is a grocery store about 15 minutes away which was incredibly convenient. And I can't forget to mention the beautiful state park that surrounds the property.

Looking forward to coming back next year!

Rustic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family had a lovely time staying at Boardwalk. We were attending our grand daughter's wedding and this property was the halfway point for the activities planned. The property house is rustic and homey. We had plenty of room to sleep 6 adults and 4 small children upstairs. We were able to accommodate 2 additional family members on the sofas downstairs. Large downstairs area enabled us to visit and enjoy each other. The small children enjoyed the sandy beach in the little cove not far from the house. The canoe and kayak ride was a highlight for them. The house was clean and the owners made us feel very welcome.

The lake was beautiful and so relaxing. Wish we had had more time. Thanks Jack and Dave.

Boardwalk for 12

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 adults and 3 children staying for a long weekend (5 nights). There was plenty to do for all. We canoed to the island and spent time on the sand bar and hiked in the state park that is within walking distance from the rental. The grilling area was perfect as well as the large screened in porch. The weather was perfect and we spent most of our time outside. We would definitely recommend this rental for the outdoors type. The inside does need some minor updating but all in all a great time was had by all.

We spent a long weekend (4th of July) at the Boardwalk house. It was a perfect lake weekend - -the weather was very cooperative and the house was very accomodating for our group of 8 adults. All four bedrooms are upstairs, allowing folks to nap without being disturbed by general house activity.

The living room/kitchen area is fairly spacious -- but we spent most of our time outdoors. The kayaks, canoe and small sailboat were a definite draw for our group. The area of Lake Norman is fairly calm, with some boat traffic, but nothing crazy (even though it was 4th of July weekend.)

We brought our cornhole game set and the backyard area was a perfect setting for play. The hammock was a popular spot for our group - I don't think it was ever empty!

The kitchen is well-stocked - everything we needed and then some.

Jack was delightful to work with. He met us at checkin and answered any questions we had.
