My family and I lived in NC for 8 years and enjoyed this home as our getaway until relocating for work. I grew up in Ireland but I have lived in the US since college. We have enjoyed meeting many wonderful people over this past 6 years or so that we have been renting this unique home on HomeAway.

Martin Lee purchased this house in 2006

The quiet cul-de-sac street and unique looking appearance of quaintness. The wrap around driveway and fenced in yard is great and makes the property feel large and explorable. The view from the lakeside screened porch on the main level is awesome. This has to be the largest oven cove on the lake.

Definately the huge over cove which is perfect for water skiing or boating in general. The water slide for the kids on the dock!

This was a perfect summer get away for our family of 6! Down home visit with family and friends was easily accommodated by plenty of gathering space and...count 'em...4 porch swings between the house and the end of the dock!! Despite a week of downpours, we had no trouble fitting in great swimming and lounging in the sun. Kids (ages 4-13) willingly kept busy with basketball, foosball & hanging inside. Easily one of the most enjoyable and relaxing family vacations we've had in a very long time! Hoping to return next summer!

We had an incredible time on our family vacation. Lake Normal was beautiful and the property we rented was adorable. It had tons of charm and the location was perfect. we found it to be very spacious and comfy. The dock was fantastic. We spent much of the time floating on noodles!!! I highly recommend it and we will be back :)

Owner's Response: I have changed my cleaning crew since this stay and found that previous had become complacent. I'm also paying almost double for guaranteed cleaning service at this and my other property where any cleaning issues in the future result in they refunding the cleaning fee and revisiting the home immediately. This has worked really great so far and I'm convinced this is the right approach although expensive. All cleaning and other related issues are responded to immediately, as they were in this case. I have also upgraded kitchen appliances, with final replacement of the stove scheduled for this month.

The description was accurate- the only difference is that the trees grew in more so there is less view of the lake. The owner was acessible and responded to my calls and emails. The home is outdated and could have been a little cleaner however it was worth the price paid. The house served its purpose and we had a great time. I would bring my own cooking utensils, as the ones provided are rusty. This property is great for families with kids.

Owner's Response: The kitchen is older in this house and cabinets have not been upgraded. I have immediately replaced all older and blemished utensils as a result of this review and I have scheduled for a new electric stove to be installed in early July. The other appliances in this home (dishwasher and refrigerator) are newer. Thank you for the review.

If you're looking for perfection or elegance, this is not the house for you. If you have kids and/or pets and don't mind cosmetic blemishes and some minor functional issues, but want to be right on beautiful Lake Norman, this is the place for you.

My first impression was that the pictures didn't accurately reflect the state of the property, but I came to the conclusion that it's just that the trees/brush have overgrown. The view from the house down to the lake is much more obstructed than the photos show. But it is still a beautiful view.

The house is older and not in perfect condition, but it was good for what we needed it for - to bring our family and dogs with us and spend a week on the lake. The house has 3 levels - the front of the house opens to the ground level, but if you drive around the circular drive to the lower level, it leads to the basement/walkout level. That's where the kitchen and bedrooms are (plus a bathroom and a living area) so we unpacked down there.

The kitchen is stocked with a toaster, coffee maker, waffle maker, and some older pots and pans, plus dishes & utensils. There are no plastic cups so if you have kids you may want to bring some. There is an extra refrigerator in the dining area, which we found very useful for keeping ice and drinks in, and used the main fridge for food. There is a gas grill on the back patio which we used and it worked well.

There is a patio halfway down to the water that has some sparse furniture and a brick grill. We didn't find the brick grill to be useful - it is small and it was full of yard debris, so we brought our portable fire pit and put that down there and enjoyed that area in the evenings.

There are quite a few spiders down by the lake, but as we found out, it is just part of lake living. The house was bug-free and clean. There are some hardwoods and some laminate flooring which was easy to keep clean.

The dock is great - it is very large with 2 boat slips and jet ski docks, which worked perfectly with our lake kayaks. We rented a pontoon from the owner for 3 days, which was great. It's an older boat, about 20-22 feet, with a 90hp motor. We rented a tube from Lake Norman Marina and the kids had a great time with that.

The owner of the home is very kind and forthcoming. He does his best to address any issues. Once we relaxed and accepted we weren't staying at the Ritz, we really enjoyed our stay there. I would recommend the property, especially if you have pets.
