This secluded, spacious house is perfect for your fishing retreat or family reunion. Located on the edge of Kerr Reservoir and forests, surrounded with airy covered porches, and equipped with the perfect cleaning station to work your catch, this is the ideal location for your get-together and uninterrupted fishing extravaganza.

Walk down to 2 large private floating docks that can accommodate several boats (and sunbathers!). Wildlife and gentle breezes accompany your visit, as you shed the hurry and tension of life in town. Toss a horseshoe game in the evening and watch for the shy, wild turkeys and deer take their stroll across the bottom field.

This is our family's country house, and some of our belongings are there, too. You will feel right at home, settling in with your friends, and will be sad to leave this beautiful estate, there are no other houses to distract from velvety black skies at night or the quiet of an early morning.

Traditional 2-story home, set on high foundation. All stairs (interior and exterior) have normal handrails; childproof gates/barriers are NOT provided by owner.

                                                                    Clayton B.FOREST

                                                                    Spent 3 nights at Violet's Grove on a fishing trip weekend. The property is very nice. We saw turkeys and deer out in the fields on two mornings. The house is roomy and well equipped. Everything was in great shape and we really enjoyed out stay. We felt like it was home and we will be looking to rent this property again.

                                                                    The Perfect Getaway!

                                                                    Jennie B.

                                                                    I've either rented this property or have been a guest of friends who've rented for many years. This is one of my favorite destinations because the kids forget about their electronics and actually engage (and enjoy) in activities making it a traditional family vacation. There's so much to do beyond the lake with the large amount of land this house sits on. Whether it's making s'mores around the fire pit, a game of kickball or slip n' slide wiffle ball, we are never bored. The private cove is so secluded that we feel safe with the kids paddle boarding or kayaking to nearby shorelines. It's even rare we see a boat on popular holiday weekends! The large covered wrap-around porch is perfect for relaxing on the porch in any type of weather. The house is perfect for multiple families, there's plenty of space and the kitchen is fully stocked. If you want to create a summer family tradition, I highly recommend a trip to Violet's Grove!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Peaceful country property, fun Lake activities

                                                                    JenRaleigh, NC

                                                                    We had a wonderful weekend at Violets Grove. The porches were the perfect place to sit and relax and play games. The kitchen was exceptionally stocked and the beds were all very comfortable. The docks were so fun. Great places to swim and fish. We brought packed boards and our kayak and they allowed us to explore the lake a bit more. That part of Kerr Lake is not frequented by boaters and it was very quiet. We will come back!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

Ours is truly a "family" house, and it was wonderful to hear that you and yours enjoyed it to the max. It was a pleasure to meet you. We look forward to your next visit!


                                                                    Suzette D.

                                                                    We had a little family reunion there and everyone really enjoyed it. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. Great big yard for kids to run around. I keep picturing a few horses there :-). The kitchen could have been a little more organized. The pantry can use some cleaning. Quite a few expired food items. But overall, we were satisfied and will definitely go back.

                                                                    Large home; lots of land; on a lake.

Lake a short walk - complete with dock for your boat. 5bdrm 2 baths and an outdoor shower! Large well-appointed kitchen. Although this property does not have wifi or online pay do not let it stop you from considering for your next get away!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Maryann, thank you for your review and feedback. The house is actually only 20 years old and has been very gently used. It was built in 1997 and replaced a 1920s vintage home that burned in the mid 1990s. As for wifi, it is doubtful that we will be adding that any time soon. We are looking at the possibility of adding credit card payments, but not in the immediate future. Again, thank you for being wonderful guests. Cheryl

                                                                    Great place to stay!

                                                                    Brent B.
