Overview

Lake Wateree House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6 max) Non-Smokers only please

This is a beautiful house on a perfect lot that really offers all the best aspects of being on the lake. The views are absolutely awesome, and there is a great beach and plenty of lakefront, very close to the house. The whole lake experience is very integrated with the house and the outdoor living areas. Kayak use comes free with the house, and boats are available for rent close by.

The house itself has an open plan in the main room, with spectacular views from the kitchen, dining area, and couches. There is a large deck which feels very open to the lake and yard. One bedroom is at the back of the house and does not have a lake view. It has an en suite bathroom with shower and bath. This is where the laundry is located as well. Both bedrooms have queen beds. Both beds have duvets with covers that are laundered after each guest.

The second bedroom faces the lake directly and has a glorious view through the large sliding doors. There is nothing better than leaving the sliding door just slightly open so you can hear the lake lapping from the bed. It has the main bathroom beside it which is also accessible from the living room. The main bathroom has custom tile and decorative concrete counter tops. It can be closed off or opened up to provide a full lake view from the jacuzzi tub and rain head shower. (Don't worry - boaters can't see you - we have checked!)

The loft is small but cozy. It has two twin size mattresses that can be put together or kept apart. It is perfect for children or romantic couples. Access to the loft is via a ladder in the hallway so it is not perfect for older couples, or young children. The loft also has a sneaky view of the lake through a sliding window. Please refer to the pictures, the ceiling is low, but not claustrophobic! There are 2 windows and a skylight.

Inside the house there is a stereo with Bose speakers and flat screen TV, along with wireless internet. We do not have cable, but do have a smart TV with over 300 internet channels available. The kitchen is simple but well appointed. There is a great breakfast bar area along with a big farmhouse style dining table, all with great views of the lake.

Outside is where the place comes into it's own. The lake, dock, and sandy beach are just a few feet from the house. There is a great hammock out front as well. The beach area includes a stone patio and fire pit (that we built ourselves) and we provide all the firewood that you will need for smores or drinks by the lake.

Keywords: Beautiful house on one of the best lots on Lake Wateree. Sunsets are really spectacular. Dock, beach etc. Stone patio and firepit on the beach are really nice. Two bedrooms plus loft. Loft is small but cozy. Two full baths including

jacuzzi tub with lake view.

About The Owner

We own an outdoor living company in Charlotte called The Stone Man. Our job is to create beautiful (mainly stone) outdoor living areas for homeowners. We both love the outdoors which is why Lake Wateree is so perfect for us, and our 2 dogs Molly and Pip.

We have two small dogs that go everywhere wih us. They love the lake too!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Lake Wateree

We wanted a place where we could escape the traffic and hustle of the city, but not have to drive too far to get there. Lake Wateree is perfect as it is only an hour from our home in South Charlotte.

We enjoy the feeling of calm that we get as soon as we get down to the country roads and beautiful surroundings.

While we were dating we spent a lot of time at Lake Wateree so it is a special place for us.

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things to do is to get up early and sit outside with a cup of tea as the sun comes up. It comes up behind the house and lights up the shore on the other side of the lake first. It is a very peaceful time regardless of the time of year and a great time to see some wildlife. We have bald eagles, osprey, and lots of herons and smaller birds. There is also abundant fishing.

After a nice breakfast (preferably on the deck), I might take a kayak ride across the lake. It is undeveloped opposite our house, so is a great place for the kayak. If it is windy I might take out the sailboat, or perhaps go for a run or hike on the country roads.

Lunch is usually on the deck, and might be followed by a spell lazing on the floats in the water by the beach.

We make a habit to watch the sunset every night from the dock. It sets right in from of the house all year, and the colors on the water are spectacular.

Sometimes we will go into Camden for dinner, but just as often we will grill out on the deck so we can enjoy the lake some more.

It was the perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our three kids stayed at this Lake Wateree gem for a little birthday weekend getaway in March. It couldn't have been better- even the weather cooperated! Even though the inside of the house was beautifully updated and well stocked, we spent a majority of our time outside around the fire pit, swinging in the hammock or watching the colorful sunset on the deck at dinner time. My daughter says the big bathroom was her favorite and she would even consider sleeping in it the next time ��! The house has windows and sliding glass doors everywhere so you get to see every part of the lake and have views from every angle. The couch facing the lake was the ideal place to start the morning with a cup of coffee.

The location of the house seems an ideal spot on the lake for summer water activities.

The owner was a delight to work with and was always quick with any responses.

Lovely lakeside getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as described and then some. The whole house has apparently undergone a major transformation with every square inch being redecorated. The interior is absolutely lovely and the owners have truly put a great deal of thought into providing everything needed by guests...the towels were better than any hotel's, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils, and the kayaks were fabulous!!

We are definitely going back!!!

Bright, comfortable, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at this lake house. Everything we saw on this VRBO site was exactly what we saw when we arrived. The view from Living room/Dining area had floor to ceiling windows and had a great view of the lake and very awesome sunsets. The gas grill worked perfectly on a very large deck. The fire pit on the lake shore was an amenity that we don't have at home, and was fun and romantic. One recommendation is to stop for groc, etc before getting to lake house.

Beautiful Lakeside Home

  • 5 of 5

The description of this property was spot on. Lake views from almost every room in the house. Clean, quiet, well appointed. This is a gorgeous property, well taken care of with many small extras. We enjoyed the views from the house, deck and beach, all looking west across the lake at the scenic treeline. It is apparent that the owners put much thought into the layout of the rooms. We have stayed at many lake houses, and this is the first that afforded one a view of the lake from the tub/shower.

The owner was prompt in replying to all of our inquiries and provided great information on the check in sheet. Camden had several nice sounding restaurants, but we were happy to have most dinners on the deck. We did enjoy Salud, (wonderful Mexican restaurant and the owner's favorite). Thank you for opening this lovely home to others - it made our stay at Lake Wateree very special.

FYI: We were towing a boat and the turn-around at the property is tight. Next time we would launch the boat before continuing to the house. The launch site at Clearwater Cove is excellent. The dock at the house was very basic - be sure to have boat fenders to protect your boat.

Peace and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

We had one of the most relaxing vacations ever. The open floor plan was perfect for keeping the family connected. I loved the colors and decor of the interior. Sliding glass door on three sides of the house allowed as much or as little sun light in. My 2 yr old grandson played for hours on the beach. My only issue was the steepness of the landscape to get to the beach. I have a physical disability which made walking up and down a challenge. But the effort was worth it!

Car: necessary

Lake Wateree is the best of all worlds for lake recreation. In the summer it is busy at weekends and holidays with skiers, jetskis, boats, and lakeside restaurants. You can rent your own pontoon boat at Lake Wateree Marina! In the off-season it is wildlife lovers refuge. Bald eagles, osprey, herons, and abundant fishing. On a typical week visit you'll get both the quiet of the weekdays where you have the whole lake to yourself plus the fun of Friday - Sunday where you can watch all the boats. Our house has a perfect sunset view every day of the year, with wonderful light playing across the lake. We recommend watching it from the dock with a glass of wine!
