About Inez Kraus

My husband and I purchased this property in July 2015 and are very excited to share it with you. We moved to the Shavenders Bluff neighborhood in 2014 from upstate New York and live about 8 houses away. This home is perfect for our family because since it's a duplex home the other unit is where our son and his 12 year old son now live. Our son works at the Go Pro Motorplex here in Mooresville. This is an outdoor go karting establishment that many of our guests have really enjoyed during their stay. Other than the fun times we all enjoy on Lake Norman we enjoy bowling and mini golf which are both about 10 minutes away. The Nascar Hall of Fame is an easy drive to Charlotte and if you're race fans you can tour the Nascar shops here in Mooresville. Another great activity is hiking or mountain biking in Lake Norman State Park.

We have fallen in love with North Carolina and most specifically Lake Norman. Our grown kids have said we've moved to a community that seems like a beautiful resort and we totally agree. We are both retired educators enjoying the good life!

Why Inez Kraus chose Mooresville

This property seemed like the perfect fit for a vacation rental in which we can be "hands on" since we live nearby. We have rented many homes through VRBO for family vacations with our 4 children and know what it takes to make renters happy. We hope we can create an environment for you to enjoy your stay enough to keep you coming back.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit of this home is that it is a beautiful neighborhood tucked away in a very private location while being extremely close to everything you need to make your vacation great. Shopping, restaurants, recreational activities and, of course, Lake Norman make this a perfect getaway vacation spot.

Beautiful and comfortable

Enjoyed everything about our stay here. Back yard is very tranquil with a wonderful hot tub to enjoy as you look out over the lake. House was very well equipped with all our needs and Ms Inez and her husband are lovely people. Highly recommend!

Beautiful place, lovely owners!

This was our first time staying on the water and it was amazing! The views and the fishing were awesome! The house was the perfect size for us too. And the owners were so very attentive. We could not have asked for anything better!

Tranquility at Lake Norman

  • 5 of 5

Who doesn't need a little tranquility?! My husband and adult son with autism enjoyed our stay at this beautiful lake home nestled in a cove on Lake Norman from October 25th-29th. There is much to do in the area and we visited a local winery one day. We enjoyed the remainder of our days nestled in this perfect piece of paradise. The screened porch, hot tub and dock were among our favorite places to hang out. Inez has a talent for decorating, as well as painting beautiful artwork. We'll definitely be back to visit again!

Lake tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful spot in a lovely neighborhood. WOW! We brought our paddleboards and had a tranquil weekend with our teenage daughters. The massive screen porch is so inviting and our girls were very enthralled with finishing the house puzzle :) Such a delightful spot and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a chill experience on a beautiful lake. Having the washer and drier was very handy and the whole experience was relaxing and joyful. Highly recommend!!

Labrador paradise

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and comfortable apartment in quiet neighborhood. Nice views of the lake with a dock on deep water. Plenty of room to sit and relax on the dock. Our Labrador loved swimming in the lake. Lots of restaurants close by in Mooresville. Next time would rent a pontoon boat to keep at the dock.

Heading North there are many wineries offering tours, wine tastings and entertainment . The closest, about 20 minutes, is Daveste Winery, where local musicians provide entertainment while you picnic on their grounds. This is a beautiful area of the state with many varying activities to accommodate everyone in your family. We live here and can be helpful in making your stay a memorable one.
