About the property

This property was originally owned by the lake's namesake, Norman Cocke, back when the lake was built in the 1960s. Since my family has owned it, it has been the location for family vacations, events, weddings, and more. The space is a ranch style home that has been enjoyed for many years. It has water on 3 sides, with a beautiful panoramic view of Lake Norman. It is situated on 2.5 areas for maximum privacy.

About Martha Wilcox

My name is Marty, and I am from West Virginia but made Lake Norman my home Summer 2015. I manage the 2 rentals on the property for my family, and live in between the homes with my Beagle mix in a detached garage apartment. I have been doing Vacation Rentals since I have moved here. I am also a licensed real estate agent for the area. If you are potentially interested in residing in the area please do not hesitate contacting me for more local information!

Martha Wilcox purchased this house in 2000

Why Martha Wilcox chose Denver

This house was originally owned by the lakes namesake and designer, Norman Cocke. He chose this property because he believed it was the best on the lake. The house has been added onto and renovated throughout the years, but it still holds a lot of history. My family has owned it since 2000, and it has always been our get away vacation spot from WV. It has an abundance of land and fun to be had.

What makes this house unique

The house has a panoramic view of the lake and can entertain your whole family. The house comes with a propane grill, corn hole boards, a fire pit, and a basketball hoop. Upon availability, I also rent out my pontoon boat, paddle boards, and kayaks

Beautiful Views of a Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The front is a bit unassuming, but once one walks inside, the spaces and views are very impressive! We all had a very comfortable stay. Added bonus was the surprising amount of kitchen inventory that (we assume) had aggregated across the last couple of guests. While there are several stores within a very close distance to resupply, we needed even less because of what the necessities that were already covered.

We were among a group that rented a total of 3 properties, 2 of which were located closer to Lake Norman State Park. This property, by far, had the best outdoor spaces and views. Very happy with our rental.

Only Cons:

-Kitchen appliances are a bit dated, but certainly still functional.

-Coffee Maker had a broken switch. Took some persistence to get the switch to work with us.

We rate it 4/5 stars only because cooking in the kitchen is such a big part of our family gatherings. Otherwise, it is a 5/5 space for sure. Would absolutely recommend a stay.
