About Paul Straubel

I love being on the water whether it's sailing, boating or just relaxing dockside. I grew up spending my summers at a relatives' lake house and wanted to enjoy the same lake life experience with my family and friends. Being in and around nature and on the water is nothing short of spectacular.

Paul Straubel purchased this House in 2007

Why Paul Straubel chose New London

This home had me at first sight. From the clean lines of the Mediterranean stucco styling, and the tall, vaulted ceilings of the great room, to the wooded and secluded location and double decker dock...I was sold.

What makes this House unique

Badin Lake is one of the most beautiful and secluded lakes in the Piedmont with much of the eastern shoreline bordered by the Uwharrie National Forest. With a number of quiet coves to anchor in, it's like being on your own private lake. It's the best way I know to rest, relax and recharge.

                                                            This is the nicest home i have every stayed at period. All the amenites of home and then some. Loved sitting on the covered porch reading or having a glass of wine. The dock was super nice with speakers so you could listen to music. I actually brought things that i could have left at home. It appeared the owner had just stepped out and left everything for you to use and enjoy. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone who wants to be in total comfort.

We accomplished both our task to accomadate 8 adults in a comfortable space as well as enjoying the many spacious decks / dock areas. This stay had us all saying, we will do this again !

                                                            We have no complaints and can only say this is a fabulous place to enjoy your time away from home!!

                                                            Our family enjoyed this beautifully spacious lake home more than any other we have ever rented. It was located in a quiet Cove and had all of the amenities which our family needed. We have decided that we will definitely rent it again in the future and look forward to that special time again!
