We loved this place ! The owner provided us with a contact in the neighborhood who was a real gem. We used both the canoe and paddleboat that was provided. The pictures don't do the place justice. There is huge porch overlooking the lake and an additional deck area. The house has two sets of french doors overlooking the cove. It was beautiful, the lake was wonderful and our Labrador Retriever was very welcome in the neighborhood. The area had nice restaurants and a great drive-in movie theatre. We visited colleges in the area and enjoyed the whitewater center in Charlotte. We recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy North Carolina. It was very clean, with a cute and cozy lay out, top of the line TV and blue ray, brand new appliances and Wi-Fi. If our daughter chooses to attend a school in NC, we will definitely be back!
