House, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeper Sofa, 1 + 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Great house, gorgeous location! Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, near historic Shelby and Kings Mountain, NC. We have 5 acres of rolling hills and hardwood forest, directly on 400' of waterfront. Plenty of space to let the kids and pets run around! Only 45 minutes from Charlotte, but worlds away from the hustle and bustle.

Moss Lake is a quiet, spring-fed lake that is very clean (it’s the primary water supply for Kings Mountain) where you can canoe, fish, water ski and jet ski without the mayhem of other lakes near Charlotte. Close to Kings Mountain, Historic Shelby, Crowders Mountain, Schiele Museum, golf courses AND other attractions - there is plenty to do if you want to get out and about.

The waterfront includes a large private dock with mooring cleats, only a few minutes from a public landing so getting your boat there is a breeze! With state-record bass, it’s perfect for early morning anglers; with stunning views, it’s perfect for a sunset canoe ride. Or, kick into high gear with your jet ski or power boat. Whatever your pleasure, you’ll enjoy your water sports away from the crowds for a relaxing and fun experience.

On the property is a charming farmhouse with two bedrooms and one full bath and one half bath specifically set up for accommodating and entertaining large groups (owners have 5 kids, who all bring their friends for overnight sleep-overs!) With a queen-sized bed in the master bedroom, two sets of bunk beds in the other bedroom, as well as a pullout sofa in the great room - which all mean you can sleep up to 8 comfortably. Includes newly renovated modern kitchen and bathroom, washer/dryer, new water heater, A/C, etc. HDTV with DVD player, free WiFi, and a bunch of popular movies for your use. We even have a closet full of books, puzzles and board games if the kids ever wear out from all the fun in the sun.

This is truly a 'hidden gem' we are renting out again this year - discover it, and love it like we do!

About Steve

We are a family with 5 active kids and an energetic border collie. We use the lakehouse whenever we can - but enjoy sharing it with other folks.

Steve purchased this House in 2006

                                                      Wonderful week at Moss Lake!

                                                      Ellen P.

                                                      This place was just as described. Very private, huge lawn for kids and dogs to run around, lots of lake front with trees and bushes at both ends so again, very private. And an AMAZING view of the lake from the dock. The house is small (double bed in one bedroom, 2 bunk beds in the other), but the kitchen and family rooms are spacious so you don’t feel cramped. You feel like you’re out in the country, but grocery stores, restaurants, shops, a movie theater, even little coffee shops are just 10 minutes away. Can’t wait to visit again!

                                                      Very Relaxing Vacation

                                                      Donna M.Valdese NC

                                                      Thank you Steve and Michelle for a great vacation.

                                                      My husband and myself where looking for a very laid back vacation just to get away from it all and this was the perfect location and vacation house. There are a lot of amenities that come along with this property. The house is well stocked with everything imaginable. We cooked all of our meals at the house and didn't even want to go out to eat. We did cook out several nights, bring charcoal if you plan to do that. We rented the Bass Boat from Steve and Michelle and it was great that we had the opportunity to enjoy the lake every day. The weather and temperature was great the entire week. We found a little convenient store down the street that is called Tom's and they have everything from fishing bait to fresh produce. (turn left out of the driveway and follow the road to the end. You have plenty of options for other entertainment even though I don't think you will need to ever leave the property. We had a great time and relaxing week and was given great customer service from Steve and Michelle. We will be renting again for the entire family. Thanks again Steve and Michelle. The property is more beautiful than the pictures show.

                                                      Barry and Donna Meadows

                                                      A perfect quite vacation.

                                                      Robert C.

                                                      The house is beautiful as is the view, the owner is easy to work with and fast to respond. We look forward to a return visit.

                                                      Secluded but convenient

                                                      James M.Anderson, SC

                                                      This house is remodeled inside, modern and sits on a gorgeous lakefront lot. The owners are extremely flexible and accommodating and highly responsive. You cannot go wrong renting this house. Look forward to using it this summer.

                                                      Private Very Comfortable

                                                      Amy S.Candor Nc

                                                      What a wonderful stay....close to everything..yet like having your own private lake. Everything was perfect.Plenty of nice linens ,well stocked kitchen, great shower. Everything was just awesome. We traveled with our elderly dog..he thought he was 3 again ! The whole trip was worth it just for his pleasure. Lots of wildlife and very peaceful in September. Lake was warm and clear as a bell. We Kayak fished.. it costs $1.00 for a year for a non motorized boat and 20.00 for an annual fishing license. Hard fishing but what a great paddle place. Highly recomend for couples like us who like to lounge and read or large families ..as there is plenty of room. Don't forget the Boche Balls !! Front yard is awesome too !!

                                                      Very peaceful

                                                      Paula T.

                                                      Just wanted to thank you for a great week at the lake. We enjoyed the house and the lake. Our 10 yr old lab LOVED swimming and "fishing" in the lake. He has not been able to do that since we moved to SC since there are alligators in all of our lagoons. My husband enjoyed fishing, but didn't catch anything. According to him there is not enough "structure", but it was still relaxing and enjoyable for him. We were thrilled with all of the things that came with the house...extra linens, pillows, blankets, paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags, dish soap, shampoo, and hand soap. We have stayed in several VRBO homes and had to go to the grocery store the 1st day to get some of those things. That was VERY nice and we appreciate it. The kitchen is awesome. We made some meals there and brought some in, but there wasn't one thing we needed that we couldn't find. The outside area is wonderful. What a gorgeous view and the chairs on the dock, in the yard and on the porch are great. We did not canoe, but how nice to have it available for us. Also, it is great that you guys are so dog friendly. We like to travel with our dogs but it is difficult to find places that work out as well as yours (both inside and outside). Lastly, I want to thank you for being so responsive when we were working to set this up, and texting once we got there. You are very easy to work with and returned our damage deposit immediately.

                                                      We didn't do much in the town but did go to Crowder Mountain one day. We hiked around with the dogs. The paths are very well maintained and the park is very beautiful and peaceful. We had dinner at Chens. Very good Chinese. We were not impressed with Alston Bridges BBQ, the ribs were chewy and they do not serve alcohol. The wings place (Wings, Etc) is a good place to catch a game, a beer and a burger. All in all, we had a great week.
