About Alicia Graham

Both of us grew up near the water -- He lived most of his life on coast of Georgetown and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, whereas I grew up in the tropical islands of the Philippines. After retiring from a busy IT career, I am rekindling my passion for resort/property management by sharing our waterfront family compound on Lake Norman to visiting guests and their families in the area.

Alicia Graham purchased this house in 2007

Why Alicia Graham chose Lake Norman

Troutman is a quaint little town on the north side of Lake Norman. We found this 'piece of paradise' as a quick getaway place from the hustle and bustle of work life 17 years ago. Not one moment of regret. The peace and tranquility refreshes our souls after a hard day's work. Why not share this special place with everyone else?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We actually stayed here during Business Meetings being held in Davidson. It was so nice coming home in the evenings to a true "home"! Everything was more than expected and gave us plenty of personal space, but room to get together in the evenings and relax. We all truly enjoyed the house and surroundings!



We have several more trips over next year and will surely be backsoon!! Thanks!

Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! The home was very clean, comfortable, and in a very quiet area. Love to cook, and the kitchen had everything you could need. We have stayed many place around Lake Norman over the years and by far, the beds in the home were the most comfortable!!! Owners were wonderful! Hope to get back soon.

Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to do something different this year to celebrate Christmas, so we agreed to rent A Taste of Southern Charm because of the location, size and ammenities. When we arrived, we were very pleased because the house looked exactly as it was advertised. It is very spacious and the accomodations are excellent. We were not far from local stores and Wal-Mart was down the street! We were only a few exits from the Mall, local eateries and franchised restaurants. The Grahams are to be commended on the great job they did to make sure we had everything we needed. Everything was right at our fingertips. I got lost upon arriving there and they assisted me by making sure I was on the right road and guided me directly to the home while on the phone with me. Truly, everything was great. We could not ask for more. We will definitely recommend this home to friends and we will go again!

Great Home, Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from 3 states to celebrate a family wedding at a vineyard nearby. This home was a perfect gathering place for all of us! The kitchen was stocked with all of the equipment needed. Plenty of room for everyone. There were fishing poles and life jackets for the kids. We had a blast using the canoe. We are already talking about visiting again. Beautiful, clean home! Thank you!

Great house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a great time, and the kids loved the boats and the fishing. It is really special how the owner provides so many opportunities for fun at the house with the boats, the fishing rods, the life preservers, rafts, and the games inside the house. Everything was in working order too, which is extra special.
