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!!!

Such a lovely place to stay! Windows look out onto the lake, beach access and all the lake toys you could want. Well stocked comfortable unit that exceeded expectations. There’s bbq and a fire pit for dinner on the beach in a private cove.

Awesome experience and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I stayed here for a couple of nights. Ann and Dave are very inviting and the place is great. It is clean, roomy and great for a vacation. It was too cold to swim or go into the water, but it was nice having access to the beach and sitting on the patio. I would definitely recommend this place and if we ever return to the area, we would book it again.

Beautiful & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, relaxing place to stay! It is absolutely beautiful, inside and out and the beach is so nice - our dog would have played in the water constantly if we had let him. Everything you could need is already there; the kitchen is stocked better than a some houses we have rented in the past, great linens and extra blankets/throws, really comfortable furniture, etc. There are also a of lot little "extra" touches that make it welcoming, comfortable and special.

This was a perfect place for my wife and i to stay. Just enough room for us. The place was well stocked with everyday needs. Plenty of chairs to lounge on and a beach are to catch some sun. Had perfect views of sunrise every day. The owners make sure you have what you need for a great retreat!

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.
