About Shelly Benfield
Hello friends - my name is Shelly Benfield. I am a full-time Certified Nurse Midwife and part-time EMT/Fire fighter. I live here with my amazing husband, Bob, who is also a fire fighter/ EMT and a recent retired detective from the Alexander County Sheriff's Department. We have lived here for several years and have recently become empty nesters. We love our property and feel very blessed to be able to share it with others. We are a very busy couple. We enjoy all things outdoors. Hunting. Fishing. Biking. Hiking. My husband loves to golf at the course nearby. My main outdoor passion is kayaking and I try to be out on the water every chance I get. My husband and I also enjoy traveling and have been to several foreign countries on medical mission trips.

Why Shelly Benfield chose Bethlehem
Lake Hickory is a mid-sized lake in the Catawba River chain. It is owned and controlled by Duke Power. Lake Hickory is a manmade wonder that offers 105 miles of weaving shoreline, amazing views, a bounty of wildlife, and numerous recreational activities. The lake is approximately 4,200 acres in size. Lake Hickory Hideaway is located on the border of Alexander and Catawba counties near the Hwy 127 bridge. The property was originally built in 1940 and was owned by a pig farmer. The second owners purchased the house in 1960 and made major renovations and additions to the house. The mother-in-law suite addition is a fully contained apartment with its own separate entrance and back deck overlooking the lake. The current owners purchased the property to be able to spend time at the lake with their children before they moved out and started lives/families of their own. The main house is attached by a common wall to the apartment. The driveway is the only shared space. The current family still reside in the main house. Privacy and safety is a top priority for the homeowners. There is a gated driveway and the property of enclosed by fencing. There is 120ft of shore line. There is a boat dock and gazebo to enjoy. Evening sunsets over the water are simply breathtaking!
