A LAKE VACATION TO REMEMBER FOR A LIFETIME!!!

High Rock Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

Beautiful rustic, yet sophisticated house built in 2008. It is on a large wooded lot on the main channel of the lake with a really big water view. The best sunset view is from the upper screened-in porch, with the trees silhouetted in between. Blue herons, cranes, and many other birds and wildlife. Hike to the dam on a trail through the woods; enjoy sitting on the dock or swimming and boating off the dock in the summer.

State of the art kitchen with a gas range, double convection ovens, magnificent granite counter tops, and a natural stone bar with soft lighting. Dining area connects the kitchen to the den, which has a huge stone fireplace, comfortable Bob Timberlake furnishings, and a 63' high definition plasma television with surround sound. Wet-bar in the den has a built-in ice maker, wine rack, and handy sink. Screened windows open in front and back to allow a wonderful cross breeze if desired.

Off the kitchen is a screened-in porch with rustic rocking chairs and tables. The huge deck, connected to the kitchen and den, is equipped with a gas grill and a small table for outside meals. Steps lead you downstairs to a raised wooded walkway to the dock.

Every room has an a full view of the water. You feel like you are in a tree house, which is where it got the name Tarheel Tree house! The main master bedroom has a large walk-in shower with dual shower heads.

Three bedrooms: 2 masters with queen beds, 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds. The beds are made for comfort with pillow-top mattresses and homestyle quilts. Bedrooms are decorated for with artwork and charming furniture.

The detached garage has a playrrom abvove it with pool and foosball tables, along with a queen-size futon. It is not air-conditioned or heated, so it is most comfortable when temperatures allow for the window and door to be open for a cross-breeze.

Keywords: Sophisticated yet rustic, outdoor fire pit, stone fireplace, big water view, awesome decks and porches

WOULD RATE THIS 10 STARS IF I COULD!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time - our family was moving from California to NC and stayed here 6 weeks. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit, the fireplace, the awesome kitchen and bar area, the deck and porches, and of course the truly peaceful surroundings and stunning view. Could not have asked for more from the owners, who were very nice and worked with us in every way. Can't say enough good things.....thank you, thank you!

GORGEOUS HOME & GORGEOUS VIEW!

Gorgeous home & gorgeous view!
  • 5 of 5
From the moment we stepped into this home, we were in love! We called the owners right away to ask if we could stay longer than planned. The interior was luxurious, yet casual. The view, stunning. We were taken aback by the size of the porches and windows in every room. And the decor was truly impressive. We felt like we had won a contest and our stay in this home was our prize! Everything about it was perfect. We found ourselves dreaming about someday owning a home like this ourselves. We can't wait to go back...for longer next time!

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I'm happy to give this home a 5 star rating. We had a great Thanksgiving mini vacation at High Rock Lake. The home is beautiful, comfortable and very well thought out. We wanted for nothing - they even had a turkey roaster. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable, the kitchen extremely well stocked, and the bedding super comfortable. When they say extra linens, pillows and mattresses- they mean it! (We called the cupboard under the stairs the Harry Potter room). We enjoyed watching lots of college football on the HUGE TV but spent a lot of time outside as well. The lot has to be the best on the lake! Great views everywhere. The owners could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We are very interested in renting the home sometime in the summer – as we can only imagine how wonderful summers at the lake must be!

STUNNING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough great things about this beautiful home! It was a perfect getaway for a girls weekend and we are already planning to come back. The location was perfect, the home was more than we could have ever wanted, and the scenery was just beautiful. The owners were so easy to coordinate with as well making this a place I would most definitely recommend.

GREAT FAMILY WEEK AT THE TARHEEL TREEHOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful property for a week with all our family and had an AWESOME time. My son and wife and 2 month old baby from North Carolina arrived with their boat; and our daughter, husband and 3&6 year old girls arrived from Pennsylvania for our first family week vacation since they were in college. We were able to tube, ski, kneeboard, and wakeboard directly out from the dock, so everyone could see the skills or lack there of on the water. We also took a hike through the woods to the Dam and a day visit to Dan Nicholas County Park, which is great for pre-school children (small zoo, water play area, and train ride). This rental was everything we had hoped for. The pre-schoolers liked playing in the "Hole"--a storage area under the steps with foam sleeping pads. Great Family Time.

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, SO MANY THOUGHTFUL TOUCHES!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I came to the area so that I could get medical treatment from a nearby doctor. I wanted a quiet, relaxing retreat when I was not at the doctor. The view from the house is simply beautiful, as is the house. The pictures on the website (when I rented it) do not do it justice. There were so many thoughtful touches. For example, an ample supply of firewood for the fire, with a tarp to keep it dry, gloves to bring it in and lighters for it. I have stayed in a lot of rentals and the little details are often overlooked. There was a new bottle of hand soap at every sink, laundry detergent and dish washing detergent. We wanted to make a turkey and bought a cheap turkey pan at the store - shouldn't have bothered there was one in the cupboard. The furniture was comfortable and top notch, not the cheap stuff you see in some rentals. Hardwood floors, gorgeous, huge dining table, deep couches, huge tv, bose sound system, mini bar, the list goes on. Even the books on the bookshelf - there was something that would have interested all of my teenagers if I had brought them, plus something for mom. There are 3 bedrooms but we are a family of 6 and I would come back with my 4 children (3 teenagers, one little guy) some time. The toilet in the master bedroom was not working, so I would want to make sure that was fixed before I came back with my brood, but it was not really an issue with just the two of us. One thing that might bother some people a little bit was that there were no window treatments in most of the rooms in the houses, not even a rod where you can hang a sheet or a towel - not even in the bathrooms. There are neighbors on both sides of the houses, so you would think there would be window treatments, but my guess is the owners want to maiximize the view of the beautiful landscape.
