About Martha Wilcox

My name is Marty and I am a Guilford College Student- Athlete Alum c/o 2015. I am originally from WV but have found a home here on Lake Norman and am currently working on my NC Real Estate License. I truly love hospitality and entertaining others and have been renting out my properties for a year now. Conveniently, I live right beside the property in a detached garage apartment with my small beagle, Jager. I would love the opportunity to host you and your friends or family and I will do all I can to make sure you have a great stay!

Martha Wilcox purchased this house in 2015

Why Martha Wilcox chose Denver

This property really allows you to experience the beauty of Lake Norman with its open and inviting architecture. It has a 1.5 acre lot and large back porch. The house is slightly back in a cove, but just around the corner is open water and the main channel. Being in a cove, the house is very relaxing and quiet. My favorite part is the fact the house faces the west and you get the most breathtaking sunset!

What makes this house unique

The house has a very open floor plan and glass sliding doors that give you a full view of the lake from where ever you are in the house. It was built in the 1970s, so I would definitely say it has a retro and unique vibe. For example, the house has a surround sound intercom system you control from the kitchen and can hear from any room! Turn on the local FM station and you can jam throughout the whole house! The house also has an indoor fire place and an outdoor fire pit. I also have included a propane grill, with 2 picnic tables (one on the patio, one on the dock) and patio furniture so ample enjoyment is possible. Even more so, I have included bocci ball and a corn hole set!

I have had several events at the property because the house is meant for entertainment. Not only does it have the surround sound system, but it also has 2 ovens to cook in and a 1.5 acre lot. If you are interested in an event, there is an extra fee associated so please let me know sp we may discuss more.

The dock is newly renovated with 2 ladders for you to go in and out of the water. It has a picnic table at the end, and a floating piece to attach a boat. I keep my pontoon on the dock, but if you specify you will be renting or bringing your own, I will move it.

Lastly, if you are interested in renting lake toys, I rent out the pontoon boat, and also have kayaks and paddle boards available. I have 2 single kayaks, a double kayak, and 2 paddle boards. Westport marina (very close to the house) rents out practically every water toy you can think of. Even more, I have 2 adult bicycles I will rent out as well. The neighborhood is beautiful and would be worth exploring! Please let me know if you are interested in renting one of my toys so I may give you the rates for your trip and have them ready for you upon your arrival.

Great location, relaxing lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful rental. My husband and I were looking for a casual, relaxing vacation with direct lake access where we could also bring our two dogs. This property is stunning - direct and private access to the beautiful (and huge) lake, a big yard for lawn games and our dogs, a big partially covered porch looking out onto the lake, a propane grill, and picnic tables on the dock and the porch. It is also located at a dead-end street which was private and quiet. The inside is also great for a relaxing lake getaway. We cooked most meals in the house/on the grill and had no issues. The beds were very comfortable, and the house was really clean. We also rented boats (kayaks and the pontoon boat) which was incredibly convenient and fun. The owners may be the best part though: they were so responsive, very accommodating (we got a lake tour on the boat and recommendations of where to eat, shop, etc.!). We wholeheartedly recommend this rental.

Nice place!

  • 4 of 5

Great setting! Relaxing place with nice views of the lake. The place needs a little tlc but overall a nice place with a great feel. We enjoyed the use of the pontoon boat and cruising the lake!

A beautiful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is cozy and has a beautiful view of Lake Norman. We rented the pontoon boat and greatly enjoyed exploring the lake each day! We hosted a friends Thanksgiving and the house came fully stocked with everything needed to cook a holiday meal (minus food of course!) and have all guests feel comfortable. We felt very welcomed with our dogs and they had a great time playing in the yard! Marty was very accommodating when a mistake was made in booking and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable when we arrived. We will definitely be back and recommend her properties!!

Relaxing, Fun, Beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

Miss Wilcox's Lake House was the perfect environment for our family reunion. 5 adults stayed in the cozy view inspiring house with plenty of room! The house was very clean and the yard provided the perfect back drop for bbq and family dinners. The dock and the boat were amazing! We enjoyed going out on Lake Norman, catching fish, soaking up the sun! There were plenty of supplies (towels, dishes, games). Truly made for a relaxing vacation. I recommend this house and when we return to North Carolina, we intend to stay there again!

The property is located in Denver, NC. While Lake Norman is beginning to become more of a popular destination, Denver has remained the most undeveloped. We do not have quite the growth the other towns on the lake have experienced (ex: Mooresville and Huntersville) but our town, and my property in particular, are close in vicinity to all of the hustle and bustle of those towns. You can expect my property's location in Denver to give you a rural feel, but still with everything you will need (such as grocery and restaurants).
