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 family 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.

Every year we try to find a unique trip for our fourth of July. This was the first at this house, but I already plan on returning.
Beautiful home, beautiful view, fantastic family vacation. This was the second year in a row we have stayed. We will definitely be back next year! It's our new favorite vacation place

Badin lake is a year-round destination with a wealth of activities and family fun throughout the year
April - Sep is ideal for taking full advantage of everything the lake life offers: from swimming & snorkeling to kayaking & paddle boarding or spending a leisurely day on the dock fishing. If you have or are renting a boat, explore the quiet coves or one of the many islands dotting the lake.
In the evening take a trip back in time to the Badin Road Drive-In and enjoy the nostalgia of drive-in movies while watching a current movie release.
For hikers, bikers and nature lovers there's a wealth of hiking and bike trails throughout the Uwharrie National Forest and Mt. Gilead, with trail heads less than 15 min. from the front door.
Oct - Nov Fall Foliage will be at its finest with breathtaking reflections on the tranquil cove waters. A perfect season for fishing, enjoying nature and getting away from it all. With a little chill in the evening air it's perfect to snuggle up on the covered porch. Fire up the grill on the back deck for a family feast.
Fall is a wonderful time to visit the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, just a 30 min. drive from the house. it is the largest walk-through zoo in the world and has over 1,600 animals from more than 250 species primarily representing Africa and North America. The zoo is open 364 days a year.
Dec - Mar - Winter brings a quiet calm and peace across the lake and area. Perfect for family gatherings and holiday celebrations. Take time to explore the area including the quaint Badin-Inn Resort and Golf Course. Visit the shops in downtown Albemarle and tour one of several local wineries, all within 45 minutes of the house.
