Overview

High Rock Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend getaway or a family vacation, we’re confident “Mohican Shores” is the right place for you. This cozy cabin is located in a secluded area on a main channel of High Rock Lake, the second largest lake in North Carolina. A lakefront view is included in most any of our rooms. The two bedrooms and upstairs loft can comfortably sleep six adults. In addition, there is a pull-out oversized chair (Single) and two cots that could also provide three additional sleeping accommodations. The main room is surrounded by windows giving you a majestic, panoramic view of the lake. Sit in one of our cushioned rocking chairs on the deck and enjoy the spectacular sunsets of “Mohican Shores”. Torches line the deck to deter any unwanted guests. The cabin also has a wrap-around front porch, a stone, wood-burning fire place, and exterior fire pit to enjoy on those chilly nights under the stars. Guests have use of a canoe, paddle-boat and private dock. Feel free to bring your own boat and put it in the water at nearby access areas. For those who prefer the coolness of a mountain vacation, there is plenty of shade and a constant breeze off the lake most days. Picnics, cookouts or dining by the camp fire are one of the many options available. Dine out at any of the three waterfront restaurants on the lake, accessible by boat or car. Swimming is relaxing with plenty of deep water in front of the dock. Wear a life jacket , recline on a float or ride a flotating cushion or noodle. Stay cool while you think about your friends at work. Let those hot, humid, lazy days of summer be a refreshing memory on High Rock Lake this year. Enjoy the many types of fishing while here. High Rock Lake is a relatively shallow lake with many types of offshore structure. These points, humps and rock formations create excellent habitat for this lake's abundant population of game fish. High Rock is well known both locally and nationally as the home of the 1994, 1995, and 1998 “Bass- masters Classic Bass Tournament”. Bass fishermen from all over the nation know the area as the 'Crank-bait Capital of the World'. While the largemouth bass is perhaps the most well-known game fish in High Rock, it is certainly not the only one found in abundance. White bass, hybrid bass, monster catfish, bream, crappie, carpe and pike are also found here. If you enjoy swinging a club, there are many courses to choose from in our locale. McCanless and Corbin Hills Golf Courses are located off Bringle Ferry Road about 15 minutes from our cabin; Crescent Golf course is located off Jake Alexander Boulevard. Ask for additional information. Do you enjoy a faster pace? Then tennis may be your sport. Tennis courts are located at Dan Nicholas Park , about 8 miles from our cabin. Dan Nicholas Park is a great place to spend the morning, afternoon or all day. It is located on Bringle Ferry Road. Wildlife Viewing for those of us who enjoy the marvels of nature. Cranes, large red-headed wood peckers, deer, red fox, wild turkeys and owls roam the wooded and not so wooded areas near our cabin. Imagine your suprise (and theirs) as you 'happen' across the path of these special creatures....especially in the evening and just before dusk. One of the finest exhibits of animals in their natural habitat is located nearby. The North Carolina Zoo/Wildlife park is located only 45 minutes away in Asheboro, NC.

About Margaret Rusher

• Maggie and Ed Rusher, owners, live in Salisbury and enjoy the privacy and solitude of our 'Mohican Shores' home when we “need to get away.” Maggie is a former registered nurse educator at the local community college. Ed operated a family-owned retail tire business in Salisbury. We enjoy traveling, entertaining family and friends, working outside, playing with our pets, walking, watching sports and any type of water activity.

Margaret Rusher purchased this house in 2000

Why Margaret Rusher chose High Rock Lake

•We chose to purchase our lakefront vacation retreat at “Mohican Shores” because it is a combination of our love of the mountains and the absolutely breath-taking views of the water. Located only 17 miles from Salisbury, we are able to enjoy our cabin most weekends and many weekdays.

What makes this house unique

Ed and Maggie enjoy a cup of fresh hot coffee or tea in the early morning as we walk down to our dock. The scenic lake is calm and peaceful. A perfect place for meditation and reflection upon our many blessings. Life is always better at the lake. Sometimes our solitude is interrupted as the fish leap out of the water in the early mornings. The amount of artifical light is limited here so as to allow better visualization of shooting stars and other celestial bodies. The stars just seem more vibrant here. The cabin is in a very natural setting; much of the area is undeveloped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maggie and Ed – what a wonderful time we had at your cabin!!.. We were overwhelmed with the hospitality that you extended to us. You really treat your guests great. We were overwhelmed with the setting, your home and the view which is absolutely one of the best on the lake. It was a much needed vacation for us and the fishing was excellent. Our son, 26 who lives with us, and is the fisherman in the family was very impressed – especially with the boat mooring system you have on your dock. This was a 10 for us – Many thanks for treating us so specially and for sharing your home!







Thanks

Great trip

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Mohican shores. The house is beautiful and was perfect for our family. Our daughter loved fishing off the dock and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. This house is in a great location for day trips or just relaxing in a rocking chair overlooking the lake. Maggie was great to work with and such a great hostess. We loved our welcome snacks and wine. I would highly recommend this house to anyone.

Relaxation in the most peaceful place.

  • 5 of 5
Our life is so crazy busy that we are barely home together. You have a beautiful place that was close enough to home that our young adult children could come and go to work/school. As a host and hostess you outdid yourself to make us feel welcome to your home. Thank you for all the treats. We all got to have a very relaxing time which was must needed for this family. Thank you so much - we would love to come back.

Memorable Week

  • 5 of 5
I wanted to find a vacation spot that was convenient for my husband and adult kids to commute to work in Greensboro and Winston-Salem according to their varied schedules, and High Rock Lake fit the bill! We were certainly wowed when we stepped into the Rushers home and took in the gorgeous views, cozy and comfy decor, and the delicious treats left for us by Maggie. Everything about our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The only change I will make when we come again is to phone earlier to reserve jet skis, as the rentals were already booked for the week. Thank you for a delightful vacation!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5
This gorgeous lake house was everything we were looking for, and more! We booked this on a whim for a last minute weekend away and both my husband and I kept saying how it felt like we had been there for way longer than a weekend because we both felt so refreshed after our stay.

The spread that Maggie had for us when we arrived was unbelievable! Breakfast casserole, Key Lime Pie (our favorite), crab dip, fruit and veggie tray, chocolate covered strawberries, homemade cookies and CHAMPAGNE...what more could you ask for???

The weather was beautiful the whole time we were there so we spent the majority of the trip outside enjoying the gorgeous lake and surrounding trails. We have a 16 month old son who had plenty of room to roam around both inside and outside and loved going out on the paddle boat with us. The bedroom had plenty of space to fit us and the Pack 'N Play and the small room between the bedroom and bathroom was perfect for us so we could get ready for bed each night without disturbing our son.

The home itself was just so warm and inviting and we felt like we were at an old friends house from the moment we walked in. The fire pit was a great hit and the hot tub was the perfect ending to a most perfect weekend. No questions about it...we will most definitely be back!

Labor Day Weekend Get-Away

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for your hospitality. Your home is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. The goodies you left for us were delicious. Your attention to the little details made this such a wonderful experience for us. This was just the weekend get-away that we and our friends needed to "recharge our batteries". We spent many hours on the water, in the sun, fishing, relaxing on the dock and just soaking in the experience. It was awesome! We really hope to be able to return and make this an annual trip for us if not more!! Thanks again ~ God bless you!
