We chose Barney's again for our vacation because it is pretty close to perfect for our family. Barney's is located in a secluded area with no traffic, yet it close to the marina, restaurants, shopping and a kiddy park for the children. It has a nice beach area, kayaks for our use, a really nice pier to sit and enjoy the view or to fish from? Inside you will find all the premium channels for TV viewing, plus different channels can be watched on different TVs through out the house. (This was not the case at The Lodge At Lake Norman-VRBO Listing 267075 among other things. Don't go there!!) a fully equipped kitchen and a nice game room on the lower level that my Grandson just loves. Barney's is easy to access both by water and by auto. I can't think of anything negative to tell you about Barney's? Pam and BC are really great host and you can reach them if something comes up that needs attention. This is probably our 10th visit to Lake Norman and personally you don't need to look any further for a place to spent your vacation. Great value, host, and location. Already scheduled my visit for next year.
