Fall Family Getaway
Family getaway for 11...quiet cove allowed for swimming and kayaking, while lake just 1 property away allowed boating and tubing. Boat Rack Marina was very close by to refuel boat. Kitchen was best stocked of any I've stayed, and offered plenty of storage for our groceries. Game room was very roomy and inviting.
The yard had some flat space for us to set up our cornhole and badminton sets.
Brent was VERY accommodating with small check-in glitch. We would definitely stay again.
We had a fantastic vacation. This house was everything that we were expecting and more. We had 6 adults and 2 children and we were very comfortable. Everyone really enjoyed the game room, but the highlight had to be the lake. We brought a boat but our adult children had a blast using the kayaks. I would highly recommend this property
We had a small snafu with our check in but Brent was quick to respond and help remedy the issue. We rented the house and boat (a must) with our two small children. The layout of the house was perfect for our family and the owner had everything we could possibly need for having small kids (baby gate, monitor, pack n play and high chair)! The house needs some minor updates from general wear and tear but overall it was a great home to rent and we enjoyed our time.
Perfect Family Vacation spot
The property is in a nice neighborhood with very friendly residents. This house is beautiful and maintained well. The layout allows for one master bedroom on the main floor with the two guest bedrooms, plus there is another master bedroom on the lower level for total privacy. I loved the kitchen which is well stocked with everything you need to cook anything! The game room, and outdoor play set were favorites of the kids. The lakefront has a shallow area where you can wade into the water, but there is deeper water off of the boat dock if you prefer swimming. Brent is easy to work with, and responsive to your questions.
Best family vacation
Wow!! GREAT spot on the lake we spent every morning floating on noodles in the cove before heading out on Brent’s pontoon boat. It has a heavy duty motor so tubing with the kiddos was AMAZING!! Wish we could have stayed longer than a week. There are so many coves to discover on Lake Norman you MUST rent the boat. Couldn’t have been happier.
Lovely place to stay
Loved the lake, loved the cove the house sat in. Next door neighbors were really friendly. Boat was awesome! Loved the lake in general. People in town were super friendly. We even had a visit from two of the local animals, including a bird.
