LAKEFRONT; 5+BR,3 BTH, ENORMOUS DECK, HOT TUB, 203' ON LAKE!

Lake Norman House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 13 - 15)

Our lake home has it all; 200 feet on the water, a beautiful deep water dock; a swim ladder to help you get in and out of the water, 5 bedrooms, 3 baths in a beautiful 3600 square foot home situated on 1+ acres in the highly desirable Westport lake and golf community. With TWO lakefront lots our home gives you the privacy you desire on your lakefront vacation!

Your vacation home features a deck across the entire lakeside of the house complete with sun and shade and a sunken 7 person hot tub. There is a beautiful separate patio as you step out the lake level shaded by the canopy of a beautiful Oak tree.

The deck and patio are perfectly equipped with lounge chairs, outside dining tables and a side covered porch. Enjoy your vacation in our lakefront GAME ROOM with complete with pool table, ping pong table, dart board, foosball table, TV, stereo and complete bar with refrigerator!

Our lakefront family room has soaring cathedral beamed ceilings and large screen TV. We provide Direct TV in the family, game room and master bedroom, movie collection, music CD's, two stereos, two wood burning fireplaces, charcoal grill, lakefront firepit, ample parking, golf course neighborhood, lots of shopping and restaurants nearby!!

The lakefront master suite provides you a wonderful king size bed and an adjoining sitting room with daybed; perfect for that special little one. The master suite also has a private entrance opening to the deck offering you the opportunity to relax with a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning. Or join your spouse for a late night soak in the hottub overlooking the lake under the gorgeous stars and remember why you fell in love... so nice to have a romantic late night in the hot tub.

We provide 100% cotton luxury bed linens with your beds made up and waiting for you so don't worry about dragging all of them with you on vacation and having to make the beds when you get there. Just unpack and relax at the lake.

Your 'Fur' babies are welcome with your 'fur-baby' fee and we try our best to keep it where it is comparable to the boarding rates so you can bring your 'fur-babies' with you. We even have “doggy” doors on our home for small dogs as we had a small dog when we lived there!

We have arranged for your cleaning fee to provide you with a full departure clean allowing you to just enjoy your vacation to the very last second before you have to leave the lake.

The waterfowl is such a pleasure to watch and with the right timing you are sure to see the Geese parents proudly parade their offspring by the dock daily. If you don't have a boat, rent one and we'll give you the name of a company who will deliver it directly to our dock saving your precious vacation time.

Or if you have your own boat, bring it with you; we can accommodate three boats at our dock or there are boat rentals available on Lake Norman. There is ramp less than 3 miles away.

Take the kids out on the lake and have a fun day tubing, come back and cookout on the grill. Then soak your muscles in the hot tub and go relax next to the lakeside firepit. If you like golf, go play a round of golf at the Westport Golf Course. On your last day, relax and don't worry about cleaning; the cleaning fee (paid directly to the cleaning company) allows you to just enjoy your lake time until the very last second and go home. NOBODY wants to clean house on their last day of vacation!

This is your 'Vacation on the Lake' and you deserve it!

Just returned with my family and the lake 'howse' was everything they said it was and more. Spacious enough for even our extended family yet set up so my wife and I could still enjoy some privacy and the hot tub in the evening. Thank you!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Mary! I hope you've had a great summer. I wanted to check in with you about renting your home again next year. The last two years we have visited in May, but it looks like the week of ***** is going to work better for the family in 2014. Is your Lake Howse available that week? I hope so! We have enjoyed staying there so much!



Thank you!

OUR 2ND LAKEFRONT VACATION IN THIS HOUSE AND WE'RE ALREADY PLANNING THE NEXT!

Our 2nd lakefront vacation in this house and we're already planning the next!
  • 5 of 5
We travel from Ohio; this is our 2nd vacation in Lakehowse I and we are already planning the next. I read the review from the guest who said the ping pong table was warped and can only think the owners purchased a new one because we had MANY spirited tournaments on the pool table and it was in perfect shape! Our group consisted of 3 couples with teenage boys and this home worked out even better than expected. It was clean, comfortable and very spacious. The ping pong, pool table and foosball were a hit as was the outdoor firepit where we roasted hot dogs, made s'mores and watched the beautiful stars. We cooked almost every meal and the kitchen had everything we needed. We rented a boat (they deliver to the dock) and thought we would try our hand at fishing but were having too much fun boating and sightseeing that we didn't really try hard.

The owners go way beyond; they return emails at midnight or later many times. They understand how hard I work and that vacation is very important to us to get away from the stress. But when I sit out on the deck under the big oak tree and look out at the lake I can feel the stress leaving my body. My wife loves the jacuzzi in the master bath, treated herself to one every day while we were there and talks about it all the time now that we are home. We never got in the hot tub and never even opened it; the Jacuzzi was the big draw for us. We liked the privacy of having it to ourselves in the master suite. Men, I can tell you that if you fill up that Jacuzzi with hot water, pour some relaxing bath beads in it, turn it on, turn the music on behind it, tell your wife to get in and bring her a glass of wine to enjoy while she is in there relaxing you will find yourself married to that woman you remember. At least I do.

I don't know how they share their great home but I thank them for doing so. If that were my home I would never leave. It's not fancy and ostentatious; it's an open, spacious comfortable lake house with plenty of room for all of us to spread out and we love it.

THE ULTIMATE VACATION SPOT!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our adult children, my mom and my husband's sister and her husband spent a week here. That sounds like a lot of family in one house, but in reality, the house is so spacious that we at times had a hard time finding someone! The house is spotless and has a great kitchen for cooking and hanging out. The deck is huge and I have to say we spent most of our days on the deck with our yellow labs, who loved taking in the sights! The guys spent their days fishing and loved that they could dock their two boats right at the house and didn't have to be concerned. Westport Marina was more than accomodating with allowing us to store our boat trailers for the week for a very small fee. Also, I highly recommend renting a pontoon for day and exploring the lake and the scenery. Evenings were spent around a fire by the lake and then we worked our way to the pool table and ping pong table for our very competitive games! Bass Pro Shop and a great mall are about 35 minutes away and a huge selection of restaurants within 15 minutes. The owners were absolutely wonderful with answering our questions before we arrived and very easy to reach for questions after we arrived. I can't say enough about this home! We all agree that we hope to make this an annual event to this home! I think a Thanksgiving vacation would be alot of fun!

A WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on the other side of the lake in Cornelius last year and hated the traffic; we don't go on vacation to get into traffic. Also the house was $1500 MORE than this home and this home was nicer! The owners are very easy to work with; we especially appreciated being able to just go directly to our vacation home and let ourselves in! No "checking in" which is the way it should be. Too many "owners" aren't the owners but actually a real estate company; not so here! My wife loved the Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom and we both loved the hot tub right outside the master bedroom door. Next time we will bring the kids and grands but this time....it was must the two of us and we had a wonderful vacation. Thank you; we'll be back.

Owner's Response: It is our sincere pleasure to share our home with guest's like yourself and we would look forward to your return vacation which Richard tells me you have already reserved for 2014; thank you.

The jacuzzi tub in the master often gets overlooked but in fact it is my favorite part of our home; while we love the hot tub on the deck also sometimes I just want to get in the hot jacuzzi with lots of suds and a glass of wine, turn the music on behind head on Andrea Bocelli and just relax; makes me wish I was there right now. So glad your wife took the time to enjoy it!

We are glad you enjoyed our check in procedure, Mimi; we feel it is much easier for our guests to be able to arrive anytime they wish after check in time and let themselves in to their vacation home. It's just one less stop for you to make when you are already tired and wanting to get there.

Thank you for this wonderful review; we appreciate you being part of our "family".

NOW THIS IS A LAKEHOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house to go on a vacation with your teenage kids! They spent ALL of their time in the finished basement, played the music loud and even set the bar up like a real bar (sans alcohol).

They loved the fact that they had their own private lake house (their words) and it really was true because this house is a big ranch on a full finished basement complete with three bedrooms; it's easy to see why the owner's say they enjoyed raising two teenage boys there.

The yard is huge which means the neighbors aren't close so we didn't have to worry too much about our "rowdy" kids.

The lake is deep at the dock with a gradual slope out from the land to the dock; our grandson played easily and wasn't over his head for quite a distance.

The deck is also huge and the big oak tree hanging over it gives just enough shade to make you fall asleep in the lounge chairs.

Thank you for sharing your lake house. As I have seen several people say here; we'll definitely be back.

Owner's Response: It is for guest's like you that we share our home! We do our best to be completely honest with everyone about our home; it is a great, laid back lake house with a big yard, big deck, big finished basement with bar and pool table and a great lakefront! You summed all of that up in your review and we so appreciate it; your heading said it all; THIS IS a lake house.

We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation, Chris and reading your review made us smile remembering how much fun our teenagers had in the basement! They loved it; they had their own refrigerator, their own bathroom, their own game room, their own patio, a great lake view and three bedrooms. They actually are the ones who built the firepit; a gift to their Mom on Mother's Day. We thought about putting a kitchen down there once but realized if we did we would probably never see them! And also realized we would have to just clean up two kitchens then :-).

Come back soon; you are always welcome.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL, RELAXING VACATION.

  • 5 of 5
Thank you very much for sharing your home with us. The finished basement is such a wonderful part of your home; the kids played pool for house and even moved the ping pong table outside and had a dance contest in that great room! We put a fire in the firepit and cooked hot dogs like my parents did with us when we kids but when we were kids we didn't have 200 feet of lakefront to play on like my kids did at your home on our vacation.
We relaxed on that big deck under your oak tree and just watched them swim and play. Your home made us feel at home; it's a perfect lake house. It's just fun and really made us want to swing open all of the doors and windows and enjoy the outdoors; so we did.

I can't thank you enough.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful compliments, Shanna! We love our home and go to a lot of trouble to make sure it is a fun lake house. We finished the basement with just what you talked about in mind; a place for the kids to sleep, play and be as loud as they liked while we relaxed our on the deck enjoying the lake view.

Recently though we have had a lot of people with older grandparents who enjoy the fact that the basement level has the bedrooms and bathroom and a level entrance enabling them to never have to use stairs unless they want to.

The pool table was always fun; and we particularly enjoyed the foosball table! We are actually considering putting the Ping Pong table outside because it seems most people move it out there anyway and play on the patio.

Thank you again; come back soon!

GREAT YARD AND DECK, NICE HOME, NICE FEATURES, A BIT DATED AND SHOWING ITS AGE ON INTERIOR

  • 4 of 5
We just returned from renting this property last week from 6/8/2013 through 6/15/2013. Just got back tonight. Overall a nice rental better than average, but not excellent. We have rented many homes before on beach, mountains and lakes.

The Good:
The yard is outstanding, private, grass, easy stroll to the water. The deck is fantastic, older wood deck but still in good shape, lots of nice chairs, great views, really the hallmark of this rental is the yard and location. The game room is good, pool table is in good condition as is the fooseball table. The house is in a fantastic location to all needs and lake access, 1 minute out to big lake. 1 mile to grocery store, 20 minutes to outdoor malls, 20 minutes to whitewater center, really great location. The beds are super comfy, really hot water, good a/c system upstairs. The family room is very nice with a nice older big tv, still has a great picture. The dock held our 23 foot deck boat rental fine. deep water.

The Not so Good:
Showing its age and rental use. The pictures are not exactly as it is today. Limited cookware, no cookie sheets, limited bbq utensils, limited cooking utensils (very good knifes). 3 of the 5 bedrooms are downstairs in a finished basement, a bit damp and musty, but turning on the heat (set to 72) fixed that problem. They had the a/c set to 69, that made it not so good. Not much downstairs to feel homey about. The game room is good, but the ping pong table is unplayable, warped and broken net (I didn't tell the owner about that).

Other: The wireless internet wasn't working, talked to owner, very nice and hard reboot the modem and that worked. The satellite tv box wasn't working, was fried, switched it with the one in the master bed, so we had tv on large tv in family room, told owner about that. The spa/hottub was ok, the high jet motor wasn't working, talk to the owner, recommended a couple things, but didn't work. So it was more of a soaking tub, however it is on the deck with a great view. Couldn't get it fixed during the week, we did talk about that.

Overall this is a good place. Worked very nice for our family and we liked it a lot. A few things updated would make this a perfect place. They allow pets, wonderful. The cleaning service did a great job, the place was very clean. Nothing is perfect and stuff happens, the owner is super nice, very accommodating. The location, yard, family room, deck are truly are the key to this place.
