Lake Norman of Catawba House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 baths sleeps 8 to 12

Just 40 minutes from Charlotte this cozy 2700 square foot lakeside retreat offers the perfect vacation getaway. The home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with private water frontage in Sherrill’s Ford, NC just North of Lincoln county. The two-level floor plan easily accommodates multiple families. With four bedrooms and three full bathrooms this house will comfortably sleep eight to twelve people and offers all of the conveniences of home. Two wood-burning fireplaces offer winter visitors an added benefit. Two of four bedrooms, one up and one downstairs, offer private suite-like amenities including private bath, luxurious queen size bed, and gorgeous lakeside views. The two remaining bedrooms, one with a lake view, boast twin beds and share the third bath. Small beach area for everyone with step access.

Enjoy an outdoor oasis in the beautiful back yard! The spacious sloping yard offers plenty of room for horseshoes or boccie. Large trees shade this area from the summer sun and transition to an array of breathtaking colors in the fall foliage season. A swing set and play fort are always popular with the younger crowd. Nothing is more scenic than the most impressive amenity, Lake Norman. A spacious sun deck and adjoining boat dock allow you easy access to swimming, fishing, boating, and all other lake activities. Nestled in a quiet cove off the main lake, swimming is safe in this no-wake zone and the sandy beach allows small children and even adults a place to wade and play. Boaters have the benefit of main channel access at just a stone’s throw away. There are over 500 miles of coastline to explore!

What makes this house unique

Arcade games. Pool table.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a treat to find a home that fit our needs so perfectly! Our 3 sonsand their wives live in Richmond, VA, Charlotte, NC, and Columbia, SC. This was a great meeting place for Christmas! It was well equipped with everything we needed. We did a lot of cooking, had plenty of room, and really appreciated the top of the line appliances...especially the double dishwasher! The view was fantastic. We loved the yard and walking down to the dock and beach(that no one else seemed to have!) But the big surprise was how many fun things were there! It was cold outside but no one cared. The downstairs huge room with the pool table, arcade games for my "boys," we made Christmas ornaments for the tree we brought, and the toddlers couldn't believe there was a big toy box full of fun! (We could have never brought all of that!) We bought some firelogs and sat around upstairs enjoying the fire, Christmas tree, and the movies that were there! Not to mention the good bicycles and stroller! It was also a short drive to Mooresville with plenty of restaurants and we found a wonderful Christmas Eve candlelight service at the beautiful Williamson Chapel United Methodist Church. We had such a great time, I can't even imagine adding swimming, boating, fishing and more! We HAVE to go back!

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Dear Brent-

I wanted to e-mail you personally and tell you what a great time we had at the house. We consist of Charlie and I (two widows married just over a year ago) my three children (a nurse 25, a Marine 22, and a college student 20) Charlie's 4 children (an art exec for a newspaper in Arizona, and his wife an editor and their daughter aged 2, his son a teacher in India, his son a book binder, his daughter a mom of 2 kids 2 and 2 months, her husband a computer program designer). We are quite an eclectic group and there was something for everyone!!!!

We swam ourselves silly, visited until all hours, ate ourselves sick and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Your beautiful home made every bit of it so very comfortable and charming. Your assistants who keep the place for you couldn't have been any nicer or more accommodating. I just want to thank you again. We hope to do the same thing very soon.

Thanks again,

Wonderful and Clean home that is reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

Great location with Lake Norman in the back yard. The pics online were an excellent replica of the yard, house, and inside. Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, and knifes. We cooked for 10 one night and 15 the other night.

All appliances worked well, nice to have pool table in lower level, and everything was clean. Excellent property for having family members meet and just hang out. Plenty of outside / inside seating.

It felt like someones home not a commercial lodging.

We'll be back ----

Excellent family gathering place

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation spot to bring two families together. It was relaxing and a lovely spot to enjoy the lake ,play board games and spend time as a family. Having the boat all week was really terrific and we had a lot of fun fishing and exploring Lake Norman .We had one small problem with the barbecue and the owner replaced it immediately so as not to interfere with our vacation. We were very impressed with the level of service. The house was clean and ready to go ,we would highly recommend this for families looking to unwind and relax.

Perfect for gathering all ages for fun and relaxti

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location on quiet cove within perfect viewing distance of main part of Lake Norman. Dock and beach area are close for supervising children enjoying fishing or swimming without on the spot adult supervision. Boating, swimming, fishing, enjoying quiet mornings and beautiful evening sun downs from the porch were favorites. Property beautifully located and beautifully appointed with bright and well kept amenities as well as indoor options to amuse all ages. Looking forward to another visit.

Great week on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week on the lake, thanks mainly to Brent's house. Very comfortable and enjoyable property, and at a perfect location on the lake. Had immediate access to what the lake had to offer thanks to the the houses location in the cove - just in enough to enjoy peace and quiet but close enough to get out and enjoy the lake quickly. Access to Brent's boat made it easy to get out and have fun right away.

The house was very comfortable and well appointed, and the support team for the house was there promptly to help address the couple minor issues that needed attention.

All in all, a relaxing and enjoyable week on Lake Norman. Thanks again, Brent, looking forward to a return trip!

We had a great relaxing week. This house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing week and the house was perfect for our two families. Every room in the house met the needs of the 9 of us. The house was very clean! There were 2 bedrooms for the 5 boys and 2 very nice master bedrooms. The kitchen was big enough and living room worked out well. The play room was great to have when we were not out on the water. Between the pool table and video game machines everyone had fun. The cove the house was in was great to just relax in or was able to play home run derby in the shallow cove. We also rented the pontoon boat which we used all week. The adults spent most of their time on the back porch looking at the view of the lake sipping our coffee in the morning and our cocktails at night. It took us 10 hours to get there and was well worth the trip. I would highly recommend this house! Thanks for a great vacation we will always remember!
