About Cindy Novak
My husband and I are both retired and enjoy traveling the country, visiting family and friends. My passion is health & wellness so we tried to create an environment to support and nurture holistic healing. Since we are not living in our home full time we wanted to share this experience with others so they could enjoy it as much as we do. Be ready for a lovely visit to recharge and regenerate. I attended Elon University and UNC at Greensboro. My father and daughter attended UNC at Chapel Hill and Duke University so we have close ties to these wonderful institutions of higher education.
Cindy Novak purchased this House in 2015
Why Cindy Novak chose Burlington
My husband and I designed and built our "Cozy Cottage" as a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. We love that it feels like you are out in the country but in reality less than 5 minutes from shopping, entertainment and the highway. It's a beautiful peaceful lake setting. Our home is located conveniently to many of the Universities in the area like Elon, UNC Chapel Hill, Duke, Wake Forest, Greensboro College, UNC State, Winston Salem State, High Point and A &T. If you have a loved one graduating the "Cozy Cottage" will make a perfect home base.

The house and the view are amazing! Better than the pictures. Every need was anticipated. Gracious hosts who were awesome to work with. Great location. Cozy cottage indeed, I would give 6 stars if I could.
Glad your family could stay with us as you enjoyed your homecoming! Hope to see you again soon!
Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer!
The Lakeside Retreat was everything advertised and more. Cindy thought of every need a guest might have. The house was very nicely decorated, clean, quiet and comfortable. It has an amazing view of the lake. We really loved listening to the wild geese at night. And the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies were just icing on the cake. While we rented the house for a business trip this time, I hope to bring my husband next time so he can enjoy the beauty of this place, too. 5 stars - I highly recommend!
Thanks Michelle for your wonderful review.
You guys were perfect house guests and took great care of our home. Please come back soon with your hubby.
What a sweet spot! The house is perfect, views incredible and beds super comfy - we loved our stay!
Glad you enjoyed your stay and the lake views. Hope to see you again soon.
The pictures truly don't do this place justice. An amazing house right on the lake. Perfect for relaxing and catching up with friends. Perfect for a get away when you just need a break from the world.
Glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and could relax. You took great care of the Cozy Cottage and we'd love to have you back!
Picutres do not do justice!!!
This property was amazing all around. From the at home feel to the incredible lake view. Everything that you would need is provided ie everything you need to cook a home cooked meal to super comfy beds. There was welcome baskets in the bathrooms filled with toiletries this was a really nice touch because it wasn't like just hotel toiletries there was thought put behind it.
location was great there was a country feel, but you were 10 minutes away from the city.
I loved it and i would rate this property way higher if there were more stars.
Thanks for the wonderful review! We enjoyed having you and your friends stau with us and look forward to seeing you again!
The Cozy Cottage is such a perfect house rental. The location is great - close to everything in Burlington and Elon. Lots of shopping and great restaurants too. The home is absolutely beautiful and well appointed too. The living rooms are perfectly comfortable for hanging out. The bedrooms are spacious, and pretty - the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are super nice with plenty of pressure and hot water. The kitchen is gorgeous and supplied with anything you might need. As a matter of fact, anything you might need is available because the owners have paid attention to every little detail - even providing coffee, toiletries, razors and toothbrushes! They even thought of everything outside - comfy seating areas, a hot tub, grill and beautiful lake views. Great communication with the owner as well. A perfect place - thanks for letting us stay there!
