About John Grubb
Our family has always enjoyed being near the water. After we purchased the house there was not a lot of discussion about where we were going to go or what we were going to do. We got the kids and headed to the lake. We thought at first that we would host lots of parties but as time went by it became a sanctuary for our family to gather and relax. The kids went off to school and Kyna and I found out we used it even more. The kids are married now and when they are in town we still gather at the lake house. Kyna and I are traveling more and thought we would share our place with you.
John Grubb purchased this House in 2002
Why John Grubb chose Lake Norman of Catawba
Kyna and I both grew up near Lake Norman and spent a lot of summers on the lake. Myself for sailing and Kyna for waterskiing. We knew we wanted deep water year round and a great view of the lake. We looked at a lot of houses but never could find the perfect place. When we saw this property our search was over. We have a large lot with plenty of shade and great outdoor gathering spaces. The view from the rockers on the porch for us is magical. We can sit and watch the heron that visits each morning or the ducks and geese that come by in the afternoon. Picnic on the dock are fun as we share our food with the fishes. Inside, there are great rooms for gathering and there is always a pool game going on in the lower level. Each bedroom has a queen bed and its own bathroom. The kids have always slept in the loft which has an awesome view of the house and the lake.
What makes this House unique
One of the best places to be is on the back deck watching the sun set or the kids play. You can see when the boat comes in or who is going off the dock. The kitchen has two doors that open onto the deck for easy access to the grill. The great room also opens to the deck and offers a wonderful view of the lake and the dock. We did not realize until three years ago when we built a new dock how much time we spent on the water. Kyna prefers to sun on the upper level while being Irish my skin and I prefer the shaded gazebo below.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Our family, of eight, really enjoyed our stay at the lake. Most of our time was spent on the dock fishing. We actually caught some fish too. After dark we enjoyed spending time together shooting pool. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix our meals. The view, OH MY!!! I had the opportunity to speak with John a couple of times. What a nice man. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will be back.
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you and your family up on the lake. We look forward to having you back again any time.
Have a great summer and we will see you soon,
John and Kyna
Great location on Lake Norman
Great location on Lake Norman, spent a wonderful week with family on the lake, plan to return.
Dock was amazing and the owners were super helpful!
We spent most of our time on the 2 story dock which was so much fun! We were able to dock our boat, fish, swim, and cook out!
We encountered a couple bumps in the beginning of our stay but the owners were wonderful and took care of everything we needed. We had everything we needed without having to leave the property - it was great!
We did encounter spiders/and bugs inside and outside but we expected some of that with a lakefront property.
Overall a wonderful weekend on the lake!!
Great location right on Lake Norman
This is a perfect location right on Lake Norman. As many other reviews mentioned, it is older and that is reflected in the price. A few things not mentioned in other reviews: beds are very comfortable and the house is very quiet and the views of the lake are spectacular; downstairs bathroom is the only bathroom that has electric outlets; downstairs bedroom does not have electric outlets. These are minor inconveniences and again are reflected in the lower price. Owner is very responsive and very friendly. I would definitely rent again. Overall a beautiful property. Can’t beat the dock and the lake views!
Overall my stay at the lake house was good. The weather did not cooperate with us and it was much cooler than typical for spring break...of course not the house’s fault. The owners were very nice and responsive and all instructions were clear.
The issues I had was that there was only one TV and no DVD player. I wish the master and the downstairs area had TV’s. Also the kitchen was stocked but the pans were not nonstick, so even with cooking spray...everything stuck.
I would consider staying again though if it was at a time when the weather is nice and we will be outside most of the time.
This is our second year of spending Thanksgiving at this home on the lake. It is beautiful, peaceful, and accommodates all of our needs. We hope to return next year because we just love it here!
