Reviewing Barney's Home on Lake Norman isn't as simple as telling you that it's a beautiful home, tucked away on 7 acres just outside of Mooresville. It's more than a beautiful deck that spans the whole back of the house, with a kayak and a paddleboat for the kids, a large dock for fishing and launching your boat. Thats right, it's more than that. Its more than the beautiful hardwood floors, the perfectly (Thanks, Barney!) manicured lawn, the labels so you can find everything, the flat-screen TV's and Wii and Xbox for the kids downstairs.
Pam & Barney make this place what it is. They *LOVE* this house. The house is family to them, and as a result I can honestly say they make their guests feel that way too. They make the house what it is, because every SINGLE little detail is attended to, and then on top of it they just treat you SO DARNED NICE! Seriously, they're the kindest, most hospitable owners you could ask for as a vacation renter.
The area is wonderful. The lake is fabulous, especially during the week when less busy. Being up in Mountain Creek, however, it's distinctly less busy than main lake. Check out the local tourist traps, "Big Daddy's Restaurant" and "Queens Landing." Big Daddy's was actually pretty good. Avoid the mini-golf at Queens Landing, but the Thursday night boat-dinner is both reasonable and tasty. It's buffet style and again, the lake and the homes-tour is beautiful.
I have three kids. They are never happy, because they're kids. For 7 days of my life this year, my kids were happy. They unanimously told me that this was the best vacation ever. Better than Disney World. We swam. We fished. We tubed.
We spent time as a family.
For that, I thank Pam & Barney for an amazing vacation and we cannot wait to book for next year.
We came "home" after a week, but we left our hearts in Lake Norman.
