Guest Comments:

- Well, once again, we have come home from your Lakehouse with many happy memories! Everything looked even better than we had remembered. As we sat around the breakfast table on Monday morning, our 5 year old grandson had a great idea. He said 'This was so much fun! Can we come back again?' He loves your property, too. (2012 - SC)

The Best get Away!!! (Jacksonville,FL)

- Amazing! Gorgeous cottage, gorgeous lake!The property was so well cared for and the cottage was beautiful. The owner was great and had everything available that we would have needed. Can't wait to visit again.

Wonderful Place for the Family (FL)

- The lake is perfect for small children to swim in (ours were 1, 3, 5 & 7)--with a very nice beach area and shallow swimming place. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner was helpful and friendly and very easy to work with. We would definitely return.

Great Family Reunion Venue (Mesa, AZ)

- Our recent visit to the 'Lake House' was most relaxing.There is plenty of room for everyone in your party to have 'their own space'. We could not have been more happy with our choice of venues! We loved our visit to the Cedar Cottage on the Lake.

Beautiful House and View! (Houston, TX)

- The house is just beautiful, very well maintained and decorated.The owner was very welcoming and helpful. Our stay was exactly what we needed. We spent our days relaxing outside, rocking on the porch, enjoying fires by the lake at night. It was a nice place to spend a family vacation and I hope to return for many years to come.

Why Steve Huntley (co-owner) chose Charlotte

Our family bought this lot on Lake Wylie in 1951 as a weekend getaway and in 1993 consulted with architect Reg Narmour to design a home with a Nantucket cedar shake exterior, a log beam interior with the feel of a Maine fishing lodge. It is a wonderfully peaceful,cottage for you and your family to enjoy during each season.

What makes this house unique

We're 15 minutes south of the Charlotte airport (which is why 2 of our 5 neighbors are airline pilots) but it feels like you're in the nearby Smoky Mountains. For our family it's been the ultimate urban escape on the banks of the historic Catawba River which has been dammed to create Lake Wylie. We're located on a peninsula with 270 degrees of water out of the main porch. Fishing, canoeing and bird watching are favorite activities.

Pre-Wedding Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this property the week of my wedding. Since most of them were from out of town, I wanted a location where we could relax and enjoy each other prior to my big day. Pictures do not do this place justice. BEAUTIFUL! When you enter the property through the drive, the view of the sun reflecting on the water is breathtaking. Owner was extremely nice and friendly. The view out on the lake was spectacular. The interior of the home was a marvel in itself. 2 years later I'm still asked "when are you renting the lakehouse again?" Highly recommend

Lake Wiley

  • 5 of 5
We were 5 couples who just looked for a convenient gateway weekend close to the Whitewater center in Charlotte. Everyone was just pleasantly surprised when we arrived and saw what awesome cottage we rented. A very open living / dining / kitchen area with big window front and great view to the lake as well as the outside deck and dock was just incredible. The house was from top to bottom very nice decorated and you were able to tell the pride the owners must have for details. We found all necessary utensils and plenty of kitchen countertop space to fix a great meal. The bedrooms are very nice decorated as well and the beds were comfy. The bathrooms were basic and rather small but no complains. Upstairs is an open entertainment area with pool table and a decent music / stereo equipment. The outside was just stunning - big yard, big deck, a very nice seating area on the dock with capability to dock a pontoon boat or similar. (There was even a canoe for us to use) getting up in the morning with a cup of coffee and watching the blue heron sitting on the dock was worth to take a ton of pictures and videos to collect memories for everyone to remember. Everyone had a great time and we all were agreeing to be back soon for another great weekend. Btw - very uncomplicated process with renting this place, key access and communication with Steve!

Sisters 60th Birthday

  • 5 of 5
My sister and brother-in-law live in Lake Wiley, SC. For her sixtieth birthday he and my niece arranged a surprise birthday party in downtown Charlotte. The family gathered from FL-TX-CA-NY-VT and stayed at The Cedar Cottage on the Lake. What a wonderful place to relax and spend time with family. Private, tranquil, beautiful, comfortable, roomy, first-class and fifteen minutes from pizza, groceries and Walmart. We loved it - clean and well maintained. The owners were great. Before we left I think all of my family said "can we not leave and just stay here".

The best get away!!!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing! Gorgeous cottage, gorgeous lake! The listings was accurate. The property was so well cared for and the cottage was beautiful. The owner was great and had everything available that we would have needed. It is far enough away from the hustle but at the same time just minutes away. The kids had a great time outside and inside in the loft area. A great relaxing time away from home. Can't wait to visit again.

Wonderful Place for Family

  • 5 of 5
We loved our family vacation at the Cedar Cottage. It was cozy and charming without pretense and opulance -- but more than luxurious enough to be a wonderful vacation. The lake is perfect for small children to swim in (ours were 1, 3, 5, & 7) -- with a very nice beach area and shallow swimming place. The rooms not shown in the pictures are equally as charming, well furnished, and comfortable. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner was helpful and friendly and very easy to work with. We would definitely return.

Great Family Reunion Venue

  • 5 of 5
Our recent visit to the "Lake House" was most relaxing. The home and property are well maintained. Visiting from the west, it was a great choice to have our children experience the 'life in the east'. Never before until this trip have they seen a bluejay! The location of the home was a perfect venue for watching the squirrel scurry from tree to tree, the heron feeding their young and fun at lakeside. We were excited to fish (poles and tackle included at the property) and rented some jet skis for a day on the lake. There is plenty of room for everyone in your party to have 'their own space'. We could not of been more happy with our choice of venues! We loved our visit to the Cedar Cottage on the Lake!

Lake Wylie is a beautiful lake with an approx. 350 mile shoreline, located about 25 minutes south of Charlotte. We are off of Exit 88, I-77S.The Cottage is located on Torrence Creek (a great cove for sking) just to the east of Tega Cay. Fishing is wonderful for the kids with bass, bream, crappie and catfish. Jet skis, boats and pontoon boats are available from vendors on the lake. The US National Whitewater Center is about 25 minutes away (intersection of I-85 and I-485)on the shore of the Catawba River. The site was the location for the 2012 US Olympic Trial in kayaks. The site has whitewater rafting, mountain biking, zip lines, high ropes course, canopy tours and hiking. Also, the Carowinds Amusement Park is about 15 minutes from the Cottage. The Park has wonderfully scary rides and a huge water park, that will be enjoyed by children of all ages!

The Charlotte area has a number of other activities for the visitor: Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens, Billy Graham Library, Discovery Place, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Charlotte is also home to a number of sports teams: NFL - Carolina Panthers, NBA - Charlotte Bobcats, NASCAR - Charlotte Motor Speedway, AAA - Charlotte Knights Baseball and the Charlotte Checkers Hockey.
