Located in historic Sherrill's Ford, North Carolina, Carolina Hideaway is Lake Norman's finest rental home.

The Hideaway is the most unique and special vacation home on NC's finest lake!

A Truly Amazing Experience: The Carolina Hideaway is truly unique. The setting is unmatched anywhere on the lake. It is the ultimate retreat -- as much a resort as a 'rental house' with beautiful views, lovely gardens, and so much to do.

Amazing home at a truly unique setting!

We recently spent three nights at this amazing property. Four discerning couples who have spent the last 10 years renting together for a relaxing getaway. In all those years of renting, we've not come across a property like this. From the first encounter at the entrance and the drive down the private road to the house, we were hooked. Beautiful scenery. A sense you are on an island with an almost 360 degree view of water. Very private. The picture highlighting the property is the real thing when you actually arrive.

The house is very well equipped. The attention to detail by the owner made it a seamless experience for us. Very clearly written written instructions and recommendations. The furnishings are top quality and the kitchen is fully equipped with all the things you need to cook in.

The theater was too good. With the sound system and large screen it was a mistake to watch a scary movie one night! Scared one guest out of the room. LOL

The views from every room are amazing. Decks, patios, beach, huge fire pit with adirondeck chairs were all drawing us to them, even on a cool day.

The owner was very helpful when we did have a couple very minor problems that would happen anywhere. He even contacted us to ask us how we were enjoying our stay and how could he help make it better. Most pleasing of all was the return of our deposit just a few days after our return. Very considerate.

There were only five stars or we would have rated it higher.

And after all this, NO I am not a relative or a paid promoter! LOL
Owner's Response: Gene,
Thanks for your kind words. It was a true pleasure having you and your group at our Lake Norman vacation home. I hope you'll come back and be among the first to enjoy our new gourmet kitchen in 2014!

Ideal for a long weekend...

The Carolina Hideaway is an ideal location for a long weekend. We live in Charlotte and thought about renting on the coast or in the mountains for Labor Day weekend. After thinking about driving for 2 – 4 hours in holiday traffic, we opted to stay close to home. When searching online for alternatives, we stumbled onto the hideaway. …We had a brilliant long weekend with another family, floating in Lake Norman, watch our kids play on the water trampoline, or simply sitting on the deck drinking wine and laughing about the day's events. …We will return. I am certain. Pat, you have found a remarkable place to eventually call home. Thank you again for all of your help and for making our stay a highly memorable one.
Owner's Response: Tom,
Thanks for your very kind review. We look forward to having you and your family back at the Hideaway!

The Hideaway was truly spectacular. Even better than the pictures. The location is fantastic and the house is meticulously maintained. It’s a spacious home, spectacular yard, fun boathouse bar, cozy fire pit, tremendous movie theatre, panoramic view, etc. etc. etc. For us, it was the perfect spot for creating family memories. We’ll definitely be back!

Unforgettable Anniversary Celebration

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 28, 2012

We chose the Carolina Hideaway to host our family for our 40th wedding anniversary. From the moment we arrived, everyone was thrilled with their accomodations, the private and lovely setting, and all the extras this home offered. The house was well equipped with enough dinner ware and linens for 12. We enjoyed the many inviting indoor and outdoor spaces which made it easy for people to congregate in large and small groups. Working with the owner was a pleasure. He furnished us with a guide to area restaurants, shopping, and activites-along with his insights as to his favorites. The recommendations for boat rental and golf courses were spot on. Very useful. And when we first arrived, we had a few quick questions about the house which he promptly answered. Our security deposit was also quickly returned as well. Our family has rented many houses from VRBO over the years, but this is our favorite. Also have to say that Lake Norman was clean and beautiful and having Charlotte about an hour away makes it a great combination of lake living with easy access and with activites nearby for rainy days or city night life. But with great weather, you really will not want to leave this beautiful setting. There are plenty of activities at the house-games, ping pong, theater room, firepit and boathouse bar. Its a great home for a family get together of any kind and we all can't wait to come to the Hideaway again! Thanks for an unforgettable celebration!
Owner's Response: Merry,

Thanks so much for your very kind words. Our family absolutely loves the Hideaway and we're delighted that your family did too! We have also rented many homes over the years, so always try to think about what can do deliver the perfect vacation getaway for our guests and are glad we achieved that goal for you and your family. We look forward to having you back at our home!

Simply Perfect!

Life time friends from Northern VA and Dallas TX arrived on July 2nd for a 4th of July getaway ~ that turned out to be PERFECT. The kitchen was big enough to hold all the families favorite foods and drinks we brought along to create our home away from home for our week long stay. The house was immaculate and well equipped. The house had ample space to spread out and cozy spaces to gather, there was nothing missing. After a hot day in the sun we found comfort in the "home theater" setting before dozing off to dreamland in our comfy lake side beds. Sitting on the deck enjoying morning coffee and watching the sun rise was peaceful, so peaceful we even returned with a night cap to watch the moon rise. No doubt we are still dreaming of Carolina Hideaway in Texas and Virginia :) Thanks for sharing your wonderful get away ~

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words!! We absolutely LOVE the Carolina Hideaway and are delighted that you and your family and friends did, as well. We work very hard to keep the place in "immaculate" condition -- and to equip it with anything/everything you might need. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Enjoy the most quiet and relaxing part of the lake from a stunning point with 700 feet of shoreline!. The lake is beautiful, deep, and uncrowded here ... and we're on a point, so if the is a drought and the lake level drops, it will not be a problem at our home (not the case with all homes).
