LAKEFRONT COTTAGE ON MOUNTAIN ISLAND LAKE/LAKE NORMAN & LAKE WYLIE

Lake Norman House Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2br/1ba sleeps 4 adults. Adjacent to VRBO# 453657

'Rosella' is a cottage built on the shores of the beautiful and private Mountain Island Lake. Much of this lake is parklands, wildlife, sanctuaries and properties restricted from development. This home was built in 1952 and has provided decades of lakefront fun and fishing. Years ago the house was divided into two separate apartments. In 2011 we converted the upstairs into a vacation rental. In March 2014 we completely updated the decor. We provide high speed wireless, flat screen TV's, Wii and a state of the art karaoke machine with

thousands of songs, but you can get most of that at a

Holiday Inn. The unique experience you get with a stay here is that little step back in time. It starts when you pull in to the skinny gravel drive and end up at a plain but well kept mid-century home. There are paneled walls

unit a/c and no dishwasher. No subdivision, no pool, no tennis courts. There are only two neighbors. There is a 1 bed room unit below that is also available for rent. Unless you plan on renting both units you should be planning a quiet stay. Prior guests that have most enjoyed Rosella spend much of their time on the screened porch overlooking the lake. Rosella was built right on the lake's shoreline. You are so close to the boats going by you can see right inside them. At night when they cruise by you could truly join in their conversation. The place is very popular and in our few short years leasing it we have had hundreds of guests.

In that time we have learned that Rosella is not for

everyone. We have done our best to accurately describe the 'experience.' If that slow paced step back in time is not what you are looking for you may not enjoy Rosella

If on the other hand, you would like to re live

the way things used to be or experience it for

the first time we don't think you will be disappointed.

7/9/2014 Notice I will continue to try to have

a boat available to rent. A brand new pontoon

did arrive July 15. It does not come

with the apartment but if it is available and

if you qualify to rent it. (go to funtorent.com

search using zip 28214) we will be happy for you to rent it. Expect a price of $120 to $175 per day

depending on when and how long you reserve

it.

We look forward to your arrival,

Bob and Kim

About Bob Rudolph

We are Bob and Kim and we are lake enthusiast. We own homes on several of the lakes in the area. We presently live on a lake close by and we love this place so much we spend many weekends here.

Bob Rudolph purchased this house in 1990

Why Bob Rudolph chose Lake Norman

We lived here at one time and knew we could never part with it. 'Rosella' is not an investment for us. She is part of the family. We know that if you stay here and get to know Mountain Island Lake you will be 'hooked' too.

What makes this house unique

Many of our guests come to experience the National Whitewater Center. If you come, we strongly suggest you visit there. It's a man made river rapids that you can kayak or do a guided raft run. This is the only man made Olympic qualifying rapids in the country.

There is vertical rock climbing, zip lining and a lot more outdoor adventures. If you don't feel quite that adventurous there is a riverside restaurant where you can get a great meal and a glass of wine while you watch crazy people careen down a wall of water and rocks. You can watch with interest rafters trying to save one of their own who has fallen overboard while you nibble some delicious Macho Nachos. There are also summer concerts and island sunset parties. It costs just $5 to park and nothing to visit the center. You can drive from Rosella, park your car, and walk to the river's edge in less than 10 minutes.

Absolutely Wonderful Stay, more than Highly Recommend!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 had the great pleasure of staying here recently while celebrating our daughter's sweet sixteen birthday. Our whole trip was completely fabulous and memorable, this lakefront cottage was a huge part of that! We explored downtown Charlotte, Carowinds, the Premier Outlets, and the US National Whitewater Center while we were there. Staying here allowed us to be within close traveling distance to all of those locations and yet have a private and serene location to come back to and relax! We all enjoyed fishing off the dock in the morning and at sunset when we were able. We caught over a dozen perch right off the dock! When we weren't fishing, we were swimming, the lake is stunning and the water is so clear. The karaoke set up was fantastic and made for a fun family night one of the nights of our stay. We were able to grill burgers one night with the awesome smoker available, and enjoyed having our morning coffee every day on the back porch overlooking the lake and beautiful sunrises (I must admit, I miss that already)! The home is beautiful, inviting, extremely clean and well-maintained. I am so thankful we found this lakefront cottage instead of staying at a hotel, it made our whole trip even more special.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. You seemed to have had the true Rosella experience. I envy you as the place has been so busy we have not made time for ourselves this year. It is truly a one of a
kind place. We really love to share it with folks who get what
Rosella is all about!

Fantastic Stay! Family with teens loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful rental, stayed in upstairs rental and the unit was clean and beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Owner made it stress free and welcoming. We rent cottages often and have in the past been bombarded with lists of what to do and what not to do. Here is was simple; more like a hotel room. Loved it. We even brought along our pet yorkie and he enjoyed watching the boats go by on the screened in porch. Rental unit was right at the water's edge and we all went swimming. We traveled with 2 adults, 3 teenagers and 1 pet, used air mattress for extra teen/ there is not a pullout sofa. Enjoyed, DVD Library, WII Games, Karaoke, Kayaking and Swimming in the lake off extended deck. Perfect Stay, our daughter goes to Wake (1.5 hours away) so would happily rent again! Also highly reccommed Carowinds theme park to travelers with teens, our kids have been to many theme parks including Disney, Universal, Busch Gardens and they said the roller coasters were the best ever (We did the twilight session and it was very economical with no lines.)

Owner's Response: I don't think we have ever had a better review! We are so glad
Rosella worked out well for you. We have found for the most part
our guests have followed the golden rule and as long as everyone
does you don't need rules. We would love to have you back.

Everything was as depicted and the stay was most enjoyable. The property is located in a great location which is secluded but within 2.5 miles of major shopping centers for your convenience. The property was great and the owner was accessible at all times.

Owner's Response: I feel guilty that we have had many fine comments and we have not taken the time to say thanks! We have had such great guests this year and our cleaning lady says she is shocked at how nice
guests have been leaving the place. We are all very grateful.
It is hard to offer the shorter term vacation accommodations
in the summer because we get so busy. It helps when folks
take such great care of the place. Thank you!

The Perfect Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
First of all, much appreciation to Bob and Kim for providing a warm, relaxed, cozy environment to stay while we were in the Charlotte area. The description provided is accurate; the owner is more than accommodating. The screened porch [upstairs rental] was my favorite place to sit and chill while watching the parade of various boats from out-right speed to leisure pontoons. The boaters are respectful of the lake and its properties--I appreciated that. If you are looking to fish, then early morning [dawn] and late afternoon appear to be perch favorite times, right off the dock. The kitchen contains the basic needs for cooking--pots, pans, utensils, bowls, coffee pot, toaster. Loved the artwork, paint colors, décor--good choices Kim. We look forward to coming here next year for an extended stay. Thank you!

A unique feature to this property is that we have a boat rental company that provides your choice of either a pontoon boat or ski boat right from the dock in front of the house. Please inquire for additional details.

Please note We are struggling to continue to offer

the boats. We have had guests that over estimated

their nautical expertise and have had numerous accidents and mechanical break downs due to inexperience. We will have to have a large deposit

to secure a boat and please be honest about your

experience level. I am more than glad to take you

out and show you the ropes. Boats will be available

as it is mechanically possible.

Notes:
This is truly a waterfront cottage that's located just a few feet from the beautiful water's edge. A great ski/ sight seeing boat is available for your private use. Owner lives close by and at your request will take you out and give you a tour of the lake. There are sandy beaches for picnics or camping and a sandbar where all the local boaters gather. Adjacent to the property is a large county owned park that has miles of hiking and wildlife. Believe it or not but all of this is just 15 mins from downtown Charlotte and all the major attractions Charlotte has to offer.
