About the property

Lovely Lakefront Cottage-Perfect For Family & Friends

This lakefront home is affectionately named “Heron’s Landing,” as you’re sure to catch glimpses of Blue Heron coming and going throughout the day! Completely renovated with cottage style charm, the entire home is bright and friendly with large windows and comfortable sitting areas. The main floor living room offers a wonderful view of the cove and opens out to a covered porch where you can enjoy coffee in the morning or dinner at sunset. The porch also gives you a bird's eye view of the wildlife on the lake including ducks, geese, osprey, blue heron and water turtles. Almost every room in the house overlooks the lake – this includes two of the three bedrooms, both living areas and the kitchen.

The spacious TV room downstairs is the perfect place for kids to hangout when they're not in the water and leads out to a covered patio with chairs and a cozy porch swing. The downstairs bedroom offers a great view of the lake and a bit of privacy from the other bedrooms. The laundry room (with a full-size washer and drier) is also on downstairs level.

Located on a quiet secluded cove, the home is only a few hundred feet from a main channel. With limited water traffic, the cove is the perfect place for swimming, kayaking and paddle boarding. Two kayaks and a paddleboard are always available for guest use. The oversized dock is great for lounging, fishing, playing and tieing up your boat. A swim ladder provides easy access in and out of the water. Corn hole boards and a hook-ring-toss game are also provided. For some “alone time” escape to the hammock for a nap or retreat to the porch swing with a good book – both in the shade and both overlooking the lake. In the evening after a fun day on the lake, gather around the fire pit, and enjoy the stars!

In addition to the home’s many amenities, Lake Norman Sate Park is less than two miles away. The park offers 36 miles of mountain bike and hiking trails, a public boat ramp and a shallow wading area with a sandy beach for small children. You can also rent pedal boats and canoes at the park.

“Heron's Landing” is just a short drive to area shopping and a quick boat ride to popular waterfront restaurants and attractions. You’ll also want to try a couple of quaint Troutman restaurants while you’re here too.

*Paddle Board


*Corn Hole

*Life Vests

*Propane for the Grill

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property over the 4th of July weekend and would highly recommend it. It very comfortably accommodates 6 adults. Furnishings were nice, house was clean and the rental agency was easy to work with. The outdoor space was awesome- tons of room for sitting on the porch or dock and the kayaks and paddle board were a huge plus. We did not have a boat but tied floats to the dock and had a great weekend- the cove is quiet and the boat traffic was minimal (even on a holiday weekend). We hope to be back soon!

Winter trip

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 6 and there was enough room for more if needed. The place was very clean, charming decorations, and very spacious. We stayed in December and unfortunately were unable to enjoy the porch, dock, and kayaks. Was sad to find that we couldn't use the fireplace as I was looking forward to a cozy fire. Many restaurants within a 15 minute drive to Mooresville as well as shopping. Would love to come back in the summertime and enjoy all that the lake has to offer.

Sad to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This will forever be the “home” where our group of friends wants to return. From morning yoga on the dock while egrets hunted in the shallows to rowdy card games around the table, we had a great time. We kayaked, baked cookies, grilled burgers and sat around the fire pit catching up on busy lives that keep us away from each other too long. It was a perfect weekend in a perfect place.
