Overview

Kerr Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom w/Lake View, Wrap-around Porch, and Large Private Dock

Plan a weekend or a whole week for your family to share a spacious home right on Kerr Lake. Once you are here you forget all about the daily grind and really feel like you are hours away from it all! The view from the back of the wrap-around porch is gorgeous, with a large grassy area for playing/grilling/games, and the lake and private boat dock are in plain view. The dock is very large for plenty of chairs to sit and fish or just enjoy the sun, or bring your boat or kayaks to explore the waters - the dock can fit at least three water crafts.

The location is perfect for a quick trip from Raleigh/Durham - only 1 hour from North Raleigh or Durham (up to 1.5 hrs from S.Raleigh) the home is located just past Townsville NC, which is nice considering most of the lake is in Virginia which would take a lot longer to get to. It is also very close to a boat ramp (Ivy Hill ramp), good for anyone bringing a boat or coming for fishing, and the location on the lake is ideal because you are not on the 'main' open water so it is very quiet and peaceful, but 1 minute on a boat around a corner and you are on the open water for skiing or sightseeing.

The kitchen has all the amenities you need and features a large island with 4 bar stools - nice for entertaining. There is also a dining table for more seating, and the kitchen and dining are open to a large living room with TV, cable, DVDs, board games and a bocce ball set for your use. There are three bedrooms - 2 queens and 1 twin w/trundle - each can sleep two comfortably, and 2 full baths. Portable gas grill for your use as well.

NO SMOKING OR PETS. MAXIMUM OF 6 GUESTS. WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE/HANDICAP FRIENDLY! CHECK-IN TIME IS 4:00 PM DAY OF ARRIVAL, CHECK-OUT TIME IS 12:00 PM DAY OF DEPARTURE.

THE FOLLOWING HOLIDAYS REQUIRE A 5-NIGHT MINIMUM STAY:

Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day

We also welcome any inquires regarding longer-term rentals, such as several months at a time.

About Sara Nicholson

We are Christian and Sara and we LOVE to boat and spend every minute outside that we can. Christian is from England but grew up in South Africa, so he loves how the weather here gets warm like South Africa but the area has the country feel of England. Sara is a Raleigh native. We got married in 2010 and welcomed twin boys in June 2014!

Sara Nicholson purchased this house in 2009

Why Sara Nicholson chose Kerr Lake

We absolutely LOVE this home - the location is so great on the lake, and the home itself is so cozy and 'lake-y' yet open and spacious as well. When we come here we truly feel like we are days away from the city life and are in a whole different world.

What makes this house unique

The covered porch is the absolute best feature - you can literally sit there all day no matter what the weather and just look at the water and watch and listen to the nature around you. The dock is the second best feature - you could also spend all day here between swimming in the clean water, walking around the shore area (which can be like a beach depending on the water level), sun-bathing, fishing, and of course boating. Then at night you can lay on the dock and watch the stars that you just don't see in the city.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful spot to get away from it all. Our only regret was that the fireplace was unusable. That however will not stop us from renting this property again. We are already planning our next trip to return. The owners of this property were very easy to work with and they helped us with anything we needed. We are looking forward to many more memories. I would recommend this house to all our friends and maybe we will even bring them with us.

We had an amazing time at your home this weekend. Everything was simply perfect, the house was cozy, the dock and cove was so calm and relaxing. The yard was beautiful and the neighbors were nice. Thank you so much for opening your home to us, we made memories that will last our lifetime.

Great family getaway

  • 4 of 5
My brother and I got our families together here for a family vacation. Although it rained most of the time we were there, we still had fun! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook all our meals. We hung out on the wrap around deck singing songs with the guitar and watching the kids collect pine cones in the big grassy yard. The lake was a bit "squishy" and you couldn't see the bottom once the dirt got stirred up, but the kids had a blast hanging out in the warm water by the shore. We're glad we found this place. Nice to get away and have an off-the-beaten-path place to spend the weekend catching up with family.

Our family had a great time fishing, kayaking and just sitting on the porch enjoying the view. We had a great week and the weather was extra nice. Would love to stay here again.

Great Lake House

  • 5 of 5
A few of my friends and I had the pleasure of using this house for a long weekend! We had a blast! I would recommend this property to anyone. Also the owners were always available to us when we had questions and were easy to rent from! The backyard is beautiful and there was plenty of room for 5 - 6 people! Great rental!!

great place

  • 5 of 5
Great place to get away from it all. Located at the end of a road and all the privacy you want. Great neighbors if you needed anything but left you alone otherwise. The place had all that you needed for a great stay. The owners were very accommodating and available for anything.

At Wolfpack Lodge you will be getting away from it all here. You and your family will enjoy a nice, quiet location on Kerr Lake near Henderson Point. The house is at the end of a gravel road, so it is very private. Also, the location on the lake itself is ideal because you are not on the 'main' water so it is very quiet and peaceful for swimming and fishing, but one minute on a boat around a corner and you are on the big, open water for skiing or sightseeing.

Once you launch your boat at the boat ramp (only 8 minutes away by car, then 4 minutes back by water) you can drive it back to the home's spacious dock which can accommodate 3 boats and leave it here for the duration of your stay for quick and easy trips on and off the water.

One of the best fishing lakes in the eastern United States, Kerr Lake features striped bass, largemouth bass, white perch, crappie, and catfish. Fish from a boat, the shoreline or from the piers at Bullocksville and Henderson Point. The pier at Henderson Point is open 24 hours per day.

Clarksville, VA is a only quick boat-ride away and is a great, quaint little town to stop in for the day with it's large boat dock, nice restaurants and shops (lots of great antique shops). The Kerr Lake Dam and some large marinas are also a quick boat ride away in the other direction. Steele Creek Marina and Satterwhite Point Marina, are open year round and offer fuel, mooring, slips, service and supplies, and sometimes have special events going on such as fireworks display for July 4th. Satterwhite Point has a visitor's center complete with an exhibit hall. An accessible nature trail with an overlook, as well as an amphitheater, are nearby.

While the location of the home is somewhat remote, Henderson is only 15 minutes away and has everything you could need in an emergency (hospital, stores, restaurants, shopping, etc). There are also a couple convenience stores only 3-5 minutes away from the home for necessities such as drinks, snacks, bait & tackle, etc, and a couple restaurants between the home and Henderson.
