About Ann Taulborg

My husband and I built our home almost 10 years ago. The property and house have a lot of character, and we feel like we are on vacation all year long. Our guests wonder why we bother to go on trips, as this is about" as good as it gets". We want to share the relaxing atmosphere with people who want a place to unwind, have fun and enjoy the surroundings.

We built the apartment on the lower level of a separate garage, with three large picture windows for the views. Always have to draw straws to see who gets the apartment, when family comes to visit. The space has a queen size bed, a trundle couch, full kitchen and 3 closets.

Ann Taulborg purchased this studio in 2005

Why Ann Taulborg chose Mooresville

We love the mountains and lakes, so we did what any Nebraska native would do, we moved to North Carolina and built a Mountain Modern Home on Lake Norman, one of the top 10 most beautiful lakes in the World. We enjoy the most gorgeous sunrises, every single day!!!

What makes this studio unique

One of our benefits is we are a small little cove within a much larger cove area. We are close to the main channel, where there are more than 500 miles of shoreline to explore. Fishermen, love to fish in our little cove, so we offer a great fishing area. We also have room on our dock if you choose to bring a boat.

Owner's Response: Thank you Heather for the great review!!! I have never seen two people enjoy the lake more!! Buddy will greatly miss Kendal, as she was the best ball throwing friend he has ever had. Glad you were able to enjoy a couple of fires on the beach as well as the paddle boat and lots and lots of swimming. We can't wait to have you back to our Sandy Beach Retreat!!!

Ideal getaway spot with great hosts!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I couldn’t get to the beach this year, so we were looking for the next best thing close to Charlotte. We lucked out as the space is perfect for 2-3 people with hosts that thought of everything to make our stay ideal. We spent the day on the lake paddle boarding and enjoying a cozy setting in the sand. The space is immaculate with all the little things; they evan had stuff for s’mores.

Sandy Beach Retreat is everything we wanted. The property was amazing. The cotttage style living space had character and everything we needed. The property owners, Ann and Dan were there if you needed them.

But you also had your privacy. The area had lots to do. We would absolutely reccomend Sandy Beach Retreat. My husband, myself and Leala would return again. It is everything it says it is and more!!!!!!

Sandy Beach Retreat was absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just needed to get away for a few days to relax and this was a perfect place. The house is extremely clean and there are so many great unexpected touches. I’m surprised no one mentioned the roomy shower...very nice! All this and dog friendly too! We’re going to be requesting more time in September!

Car: necessary

We are located towards the end of a long Peninsula, where there are hundreds of beautiful Lake Front Homes. It is a very active community and is near the Trump National Golf Club Charlotte. Our road is about a 2 mile circle and is popular with walkers and bicyclists. We are within an hour to an hour and a half, from many popular half day or full day trips. Stone Mountain and South Mountain State Parks are great hiking areas that we greatly enjoy. You can also be in a popular mountain town like Blowing Rock within that time. In a half hour you can be at one of the many wineries located just north of Mooresville. Also a popular destination is Uptown Charlotte , and near the airport is the popular White Water Rafting Center. We are in a great location, to enjoy all of the activities that the Charlotte/Mooresville area has to offer.
