Lake Norman House Rental Photos and Description

The trip of a lifetime! 5 BR, 4.5 BA with amazing views and privacy, sleeps 12

Located in historic Sherrill's Ford, North Carolina, Carolina Hideaway is Lake Norman's finest rental home. The Hideaway is like an island onto itself, offering over 4200 square feet of casually elegant waterfront living (and 1000+ ft of porches) on a 4+ acre very private peninsula with stunning panoramic lake views from every room. Unmatched privacy!

The Hideaway features:

A large comfortable home, decorated to make you feel right at home on the lake. A beautiful private boathouse bar sitting over the lake. A stunning kitchen featuring two islands and a Wolf 48' double oven. Two master suites and sleeping space for twelve. Extensive covered, screened and open porches. A massive 8ft. by 5ft. movie theatre with movie library. A large private sandy 'beach' area surrounded by palm trees, spacious family fire pit area, outdoor ping-pong, , game table, etc. Over 700 ft of shoreline for great fishing. Rental boat delivery available and access to private chefs (addl cost)

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

Sorry, we do not host weddings of any kind. No exceptions.

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.

Even more amazing that the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely amazing. From the kitchen, bedrooms, media room, boathouse bar, fire pit, gorgeous grounds, and beautiful lake views everything exceeded our expectations. The property was well maintained and clean and accommodated our group of 12 comfortably. I definitely recommend this property and will book it again for my family!

Incredible getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a great weekend with friends and family in this beautiful home. It was truly one of the nicest homes we have stayed, and every small detail of the house had such careful thought. As you make your way up the long driveway, you get more and more excited with every few feet. When you enter the front door, it opens up to a spacious living room with magnificent views of the lake. The property is amazing, with many different areas to relax. We found ourselves just slowly moving from each different area around the property- from the living room with extraordinary views, to the spacious boat house bar, then to the fire pit, and finally to the movie theater for a late night flick. The home's high end finishes and top quality appliances were easy reminders of the caliber of this luxury property. Everything in the description was spot on, if not being understated! The home was in perfect condition, very clean and organized. Patrick's recommendations were very helpful, and the boat rental was a very easy process. My family and I cannot wait to come back to the property next summer!

Perfect setting for a lake family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Good Morning,

After a week of thoughts we wanted to take a minute to thank you for sharing your house with us. It was honestly one of the best family vacations we ever had. The house was so perfect we never had to leave.

We ended up with Chef Ken twice during the week. He is quite the character. It allowed us to sit and relax and enjoy a good meal without having to do any work, which is my idea of vacation.

The kids enjoyed the theater room and watching the word cup on the big screen! For me the outside setting made the week. We tubed, knee boarded, water skied, wake boarded, paddle boarded, kayaked and enjoyed the trampoline. We enjoyed the fire pit and appreciate you having more wood delivered. We didn't use it as much as we thought because we were so tired from all the fun each day.

My parents have never been so engaged in a week of vacation. They aren't able to get out on the water but enjoyed watching the kids from the boat house bar, docks and under the deck where the breeze blew and kept them out of the sun. We had a table tennis and corn hole tournament that they played in for the first time in their lives. We savor each vacation together as our parents age and if we never have another at least we had this week as our last. It couldn't have been more perfect.

We have rented houses all over the east coast but this was by far the best. The kitchen was beautiful, well stocked and organized(thanks to all the labels) Having beach towels and linens provided was an extra plus and enabled everyone to travel light. The Harris Teeter on 150 has and express lane system now where you order on line and pick up curb side. That was perfect as we picked up on our way to the house and would reorder in the evening to be ready the next morning.

Thank you for being so easy to work with and helpful. We loved your house and Lake Norman and hope to be back in the future.

Thanks again

The Summers/Thompson families

Memorable-One Of A Kind Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Carolina Hideaway was superb. The house, location and amenities were all exactly what we were promised. We especially loved the fact that the kids could water ski, tube and use the skidoos right in front of the house. Not a very busy boating area. The theatre room was a big bonus for everyone. House was very clean and the kitchen is outstanding. Everyone had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends or relatives.

The trip of a lifetime, beats the beach!

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled up in the quiet private driveway we were blown away by the privacy this house has to offer and then when we went inside it was like being in a model home! I'm a stickler for furnishings, bedding and linens and I felt like everything was so tasteful and high quality. The kitchen has all that you need for gourmet meals and is absolutely beautiful. Then you step into the backyard and you are in your own slice of heaven! From either way you look you see the lake and the Carolina Hideaway property, it's breathtaking! We rented boats and spent most of our time in the water or in the fabulous boat bar over the water. In the evening we gathered around the outdoor fire pit while the kids played ping pong or on the fabulous grassy areas. The theater room was a big hit too! On day 2 we called Patrick to rebook for the next year. He provides lists of great places to eat and rent boats and where to shop, there wasn't a stone left uncovered. If you are lucky enough to find a week open here grab it immediately! We loved it!

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).
