LAKE HICKORY COTTAGE IN APPALACHIAN FOOTHILLS

Lake Hickory Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Relax and enjoy the delights of western North Carolina in this 1,200 square-foot cottage on a deep-water cove of Lake Hickory. Enjoy swimming, fishing, jet-skiing, and boating from the dock, or just watching the blue heron, geese, and ducks from the sunroom or patios. Relax as the sun reflects off the water. Visit the sights of western and Piedmont North Carolina.

Winston-Salem, Charlotte, Asheville, and the mountains are all within an easy drive. Enjoy shopping for furniture at the Hickory Furniture Mart or along US 321, gem mining in Hiddenite, races at the tracks in Hickory, Charlotte or No Wilksboro, or golf at local courses.

The spacious great room and sunroom (each 30 feet long), in addition to the half-acre site, make this a wonderful place for a one- or two-week vacation with the family -- or a longer-term exploration of retirement possibilities. This quiet country location is just seven miles from Taylorsville, and 12 miles from Hickory.

Retirees and soon to be retired -- this is a great location to check out possible retirement homes in western and northwestern North Carolina: Hickory, Asheville, Hendersonville, Boone, Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Greensboro areas are all close enough to scout out and still come 'home' each night. For extended stays in the off-season, call for special rates.

About Marcia

I love the serenity of the lake, and hope you love my home as much as I do.

Marcia purchased this cottage in 1988

Why Marcia chose Lake Hickory

I moved to NC from Los Angeles, and the cost of my half acre on the lake was a fraction of the price of the home I left in LA. I worked in Hickory, then in Boone, and when my work took me further away, I decided to keep this house. This is my home away from home, and hopefully will be my retirement home.

What makes this cottage unique

I love western NC, and my home has one of the best locations on Lake Hickory -- right on the water, few houses in view, little boat traffic, and lots of peace, sunshine and quiet. It is a wonderful place for a relaxing break from the daily grind and pressures of work. During the summer, it's a great place to sun and swim; and year round there's good fishing in the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

enjoyable. I read a book and painted three pictures -- we

Autumn Haven

  • 5 of 5
We found this little gem after being rained out camping. It turned out to be a wonderful, if unplanned, part of our vacation.

The view of the lake from the sun room, with autumn colors all around us and wind blowing through open windows was just captivating, and we spent most our stay just looking at the scene and reading. It was an easy transition from sleeping in a tent! The lake is lovely and we enjoyed walking down to the dock to see the ducks.


The house is totally outfitted with everything you might have forgotten to bring and is extremely clean and cared for.

A most enjoyable stay! Thank you, Marcia.

We enjoyed our stay at the house and the owner was very accommodating. We spent most of our time on the boat dock relaxing in the sun and water.

Fall season was great, fishing not so much.

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was truly a great find. We so much enjoyed the cottage, amenities and lake side local. Temperatures ranged from 25 to 75 degrees. Being from Wisconsin, this was pretty much shorts and tees weather. We hosted our family to Thanksgiving dinner and the cottage easily accommodated a whole turkey prep an serving for 12 people. The central location between Taylorsville, Hickory and Conover meant we were able to best utilize our time, gas and procurement needs for our many projects. We hope our North Carolina family's health and needs will require us to return next year. We'll certainly try to stay at this great location again. All-in-all, a most pleasant experience.

A level of hospitality unparalleled

  • 5 of 5
While looking for a temporary residence during a long distance relocation we were fortunate to find this wonderful cottage. We had agreed with the owner that a 2 month stay would be needed. Well, 2 months morphed into 8.

Marcia, went way above & beyond accommodating our needs. The residence is equipped with everything one could need and is well maintained & very clean. She has thought out everything ahead of time. The couple of times we asked for assistance with a few maintenance items Marcia was remarkably quick to respond.

The location is very quiet and the lake is so serene. We enjoyed our stay immeasurably and can't recommend this location enough if quiet waterfront is what your looking for. In retrospect I don't think the pictures do this location justice. Come see for yourself ... you will not be disappointed!!

Thank you Marcia!!!

Great stay.

  • 4 of 5
The inside of the house is well maintained and very clean. I found enough room to park my truck and boat by backing it down the drive. The location is great and the Cross Roads Grill up the road was a perfect stop for breakfast or dinner before and after a day on the lake. The outside porches and walkways could use some repair but for the price this place is a perfect weekend get away. Marcia was very helpful and made the entire process very easy.

Unexpected, but very peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5
The property owner was accommodating and gave us many details about the house and surrounding area when we made our last minute request. The house was clean and the immediate area peaceful and quiet...everything we needed. We were very pleased and would not hesitate to book in the future.
