COZY WATERFRONT HOME, DEEP WATER, PRIVATE DOCK AND SANDY BEACH

Lake Norman Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This lovely Lake Norman home sits on the northern end of the lake and is located 15 minutes from downtown Mooresville, the Lowes Corporate headquarters, Lake Norman Regional Hospital, and most of the major Sprint NASCAR race shops. We are located just a few miles off of I-77 accessible from either exit 36 or 42 in Mooresville, and centrally located between I-40 and I-85. The short drive you make from the interstate to our lake house is one of the most beautiful, peaceful drives in the area, past farmland, through forests, and by beautiful homes.

From the moment you step inside the house you’ll be struck by the gorgeous view of the lake, and you’ll head straight for the deck to soak up even more. Outside, you’ll revel in the privacy of trees and enjoy watching the birds that frequent the feeders. You’ll realize you’ve entered a world away from it all!

The main walk-in floor (which is the upstairs) has an open floor plan with a great room/dining area/fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, reading alcove, and 1.5 baths. The great room has a sofa, 2 cozy arm chairs, and tv with dvd. The dining area has a table that seats 4 and a bar that seats 4 more. The upstairs bedroom #1 has a queen size bed, walk in closet, ½ bath, and direct access to the upstairs deck. Upstairs bedroom #2 has a double bed and walk in closet. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans for added comfort. The upstairs baths were designed with retirees in mind and feature comfort-height toilets with grab bar, and a step in shower with hand-held sprayer. The reading alcove located right off the kitchen affords a cozy loveseat surrounded by windows with views of the flower gardens and birds outdoors.

Downstairs you’ll find another great room area with TV, kitchenette with full sized fridge, master bedroom, and 1 bath. The master bedroom features a king sized bed, ceiling fan, walk in closet, and full bath. It has direct access to the downstairs deck.

This home has a two car covered parking area adjoining the entrance, as well as additional parking to accommodate a total of four cars.

There are upper and lower covered decks that overlook the lake and are outfitted with porch swings, rockers, and seating for cuddling up with a good book or for outdoor dining. You’ll also find a grill and an open fire pit, for those great cookouts with the family.

We have installed wireless hi-speed internet service for your convenience.

The private pier has a floating boat slip and jetski dock. We have deep water at the pier's end, but our beach area is shallow and perfect for swimming with one of the few naturally sandy beaches on the entire lake. Our kids spent many hours on that beach with shovels & pails! There are a variety of life jackets on site, but because we cannot guarantee we’ll have enough jackets of the particular sizes you need, we suggest you bring your own. We do provide an assortment of noodles and water rafts. Boats and jetskis are available for rent at several nearby marinas.

Fine and casual dining is only minutes away, either by car or by boat, or you can call for pizza delivery. Downtown Mooresville, with its down home ice cream parlor and antique shops, is just a quick drive away. Charlotte is just 45 mins to the south, in case you’re in the mood for museums, concerts, or professional sports. Fun day trips could include Carowinds amusement park, the Biltmore House in Asheville, or Grandfather Mountain. In October, enjoy the hot air balloons at the Carolina BalloonFest in nearby Statesville.

My family has owned this lake lot since I was twelve, so this is very much my 'homeplace'. We started with a single wide mobile home and spent weekends here. In 1998 my husband and I bought the lot from my parents and we later built a home here.

This is our solace, our haven away from the real world. The quiet, the trees, the chirping birds, all carry us away from the stresses of life as soon as we arrive! I dream of my morning coffee time on the porch swing overlooking the lake.

This is the perfect place to enjoy early morning or after dinner walks. Our house is one of a handful of homes on a privately owned cul de sac at the end of a peninsula on the lake, meaning there is very little traffic to worry about. You can walk your dog, or push a baby stroller, or watch the kids on their bikes on this shady private road.

Relaxing retreat!

What a relaxing retreat! From the moment I walked in I've never felt more at home. Lake front views from a majority of the rooms certainly makes for a serene setting. Well kept & clean,this house is a perfect place for for even a large family getaway. Tastefully decorated and quite cozy, the thoughtful placement of puzzles, books and local menus will make it easy to choose Whispering Pines again.

Awesome!

For a work event our team needed to stay in the Charlotte area so we decided to rent a vacation home. We loved this home! It was much better than a hotel.
MOST importantly, the home is clean, decorated creatively, and the view was beyond belief!
We loved the space we had e.g., kitchen options, having a washer a dryer on-site, a chance to enjoy--relaxing together in the living/great room. The game room was fun too!
This home has everything you need right at your finger tips (throws, coffee maker, internet, lighters for the fire pit, parking at the door, etc.).
Staying here was much easier than I expected--We were afraid of some glitch but everything went perfectly!
Every morning we would sit out on the deck/porch enjoying the view of the lake. We lit the firepit at night and made smores!
It was great! I would definitely love to stay at this home again!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review! I'm so glad you all enjoyed your stay, and we could make your work weekend a little more enjoyable. You're welcome back any time!

Comfortable and Clean

I would recommend this vacation rental and will most likely chose to rent this house again. It was comfortably appointed and clean, with plenty of space to spread out. The only negative I have is for the queen bed in one of the upstairs bedrooms. It was horrible! It was way too soft (and I like soft beds) and didn't seem to sit on the box spring - it moved every time I moved! It was so uncomfortable I moved to the couch in the middle of the night and then slept on a air mattress the second night.

Other than that, the house was great! We really enjoyed our stay. The location is ideal, very quiet and peaceful. The pictures accurately represent the house and ground. I would recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: So sorry you were less than pleased with the bed! I'm sorry to hear your experience, as these are new mattresses (just a year old or so). I'm glad the rest of your stay was enjoyable!

This is a lovely house, a wee bit off the beaten track but within 10 minutes of shopping, etc. The home itself is lovely, well furnished and very comfortable with high thread count linens, plenty of nice, big towels, etc. The view is to die for and the surrounding homes and neighborhood very, very nice. I was there with my daughter, her husband and two sons, 3 and 6, and the boys absolutely loved the house with the game room, fire pit and dock plus plenty of room in the yard to throw a football. Thanks a lot, Jana, for providing us with such a lovely home away from home.

Spent a long weekend and really enjoyed the visit. The house is well maintained and is located on a good part of the lake. Plenty of romm fr 3 couples. Easy access from the main road and a place to park boat trailer. Plan on returning. Well worth the money.
