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.

Michael Brawley purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Michael Brawley chose Denver

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

An unforgettable treat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two months and did not want to leave. The house is gorgeous, wildlife sightings are guaranteed, and the location is perfect. The owners thought of every detail necessary to make any guest's visit memorable, comfortable and exquisite.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Michael was great to work with. The house was perfect for a week of R&R. Sitting on the porch, sitting on the dock, floating in the lake, feeding the sunfish right at the dock with our granddaughter. Everything was as described. Nice Ikea kitchen. House is super clean and neat. We'll be back!

Secluded Rustic Yet Modern Giant Tree Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at this property. The owner was above and beyond cordial to work with. The only disadvantage to the property are the countless steps. For someone young or no health issues, one would not have a concern. Overall, the property is relaxing, modern yet rustic. The best to describe feel like you are outdoors in a tree house when you are indoors. Great place!

Lovely time in a very out of the mainstream area.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean furnished well and a delight to stay in...we especially enjoyed the deck with view of lake, the shady lot, and use of the canoe. I got the hang of the very modern kitchen quickly and it was a pleasure to cook a few meals for my hubby and I . We went out to eat twice, Pomadaros in Dever only open two weeks but was wonderful.

Peaceful & Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at the Lake Norman house was everything we were hoping for! It is a beautiful home... the white pine was gorgeous and created such a nice scent. The kitchen was very modern and well stocked. My favorite part was the great location of the home on the lake. We literally spent 75-80% of our time in the lake. We have a 4 year old... With a supplied life jacket, he had the time of his life jumping off the dock and swimming around the peaceful little cove this house sits on. The owner was also very easy to work with. He was incredibly nice and made sure we knew what we needed to know about the house. I would definitely recommend this property to families looking for a relaxing family getaway on a lake. We can't wait to come back again!

Nearest Airport
20 Miles
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. 7047799867
