About the Property

Lakefront, 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, outdoor fireplace, dock and private beachfront

Lucky Cove Cottage, our family's newly completed lakefront house is the perfect getaway for those seeking privacy, an open modern interior and a house constructed with quality rather than quantity as a priority. Constructed using the latest in energy efficient technologies, our cottage is cozy, quiet and full of light with the lake facing side full of glass to take in the waves or enjoy the sunset.
The house is lined with white pine interior instead of drywall in most locations giving a warm glow and a wonderful acoustic character. The master bedroom balcony overlooks the living room which has a 24 ft ceiling. The small footprint gives an intimate feel while three levels allows people private space for alone time.
Great blue heron, owls, osprey, deer, bass and garr are daily visitors to our cove. Our dock is protected from the sun until noon each day and is a great space to have coffee in the morning or cocktails while enjoying the sunset.
Easy access to our small beach to launch your kayak, canoe or sailboat. Several free boat ramps nearby for larger craft and boat rental is only a five minute drive. Depths at our dock available for your boat is typically 4-5 feet. Our dock is protected from almost every direction and is only a couple minutes motoring from the main channel and the largest part of Lake Norman.

This house is not appropriate for parties and is not available for rentals that involve larger groups sharing weekends over a longer period, i.e. 4 couples rent for a month and each use for a separate weekend.

Our cottage has:
One new king bed in the master.
One new full bed and one bunk bed on the first floor.
To insure cleanliness and protect our cottage, we do the cleaning ourselves. We do whatever we can to make this a relaxing experience for you and your family.
We are very happy to answer any questions you may have after you read the complete listing.

20 Miles
Nearest Airport
Charlotte Douglas International

Car: Necessary

Located in a rural area (next closest non-lakefront house is almost 1/2 mile away) we are still only 5 minutes from a hospital, multiple restaurants, gas stations and a bustling business center including a Super-Walmart and a Lowes. Just down the road is a public waterfront park with a free splash pad and free boat ramps. Charlotte Motor Speedway is less than 40 minutes away, as is downtown Charlotte. The heart of the Appalachian mountains is only 1 1/2 hours away.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Ex professional sailor. We met racing against each other on sailboats here on Lake Norman. We own a beer and wine store and are a water family with a strong attachment to our lake and our environment. We are raising our daughter, a budding sailor, born in 2010 to appreciate and care about our world and live life to the fullest.

Why the Owner Chose Denver, NC, USA:
I found this property in 2001 and purchased it with plans to build. After years of design changes we completed our cottage in 2012. It has seen little use since completion so we are starting to rent it out to people who will appreciate and use it with care as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This house is perfect for nature lovers and people who appreciate thoughtful design and energy efficiency. A perfect house for contemplation, and quality time with small groups. Although there are houses on both sides you really feel tucked away due to the natural state of the grounds.
