Overview

Lake Norman House Rental Photos and Description

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

Our lake home has it all; over 200 feet of lakefront, a custom built lakefront firepit, a 7 person hot tub, 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, 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.

If you would like we will provide have your beds made up with 100% cotton luxury bed linens waiting for you when you will arrive so you won't have to 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.

Build a fire in our custom built lakefront firepit, pour a glass of wine and watch the sun go down and the ducks and geese in the lake settling down for the evening. They are 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, we can help you rent one and can give you the name of a company who delivers your boat directly to our dock saving your precious vacation time.

Have your own boat? Bring it with you; we can accommodate three boats at our dock. There is ramp less than 3 miles away.

Take the kids out on the lake and have a fun day boating, 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!

Perfect family vacation home!

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!

Everything they said and more. Thank you so much for sharing!

I have rented vrbo homes for years but this one by far is the best. It's large and open and has plenty of frontage on the water with a dock. They helped us rent a boat and we had fun trying our hand at fishing.

We put a fire in the firepit every night and watched the sun set. It was wonderful!

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".
