About the property

Level Grounds 3BR Lakefront Vacation Rental Norwood, North Carolina US

Beautiful and spacious 3 bedroom 1800 sft lakefront home with an additional 500 sft 1 bedroom/1 bath garage apartment (additional rent if needed).

The MAIN house is three bedrooms and two baths with a lovely dock and boat access. The home sits at the end of a quiet cove on a level lot and no steep stairs to lake or dock (Elderly, handicapped) leading to a 5,000 acre crystal clean lake. If offers 1950 square feet of living space along with 300 square feet of upstairs and downstairs porches. A marina is within 1/4 mile that rents jet skis and pontoon boats along with full fuel services. You are 45 minutes from the Nascar Charlotte Motor Speedway, The 'Rock' Nascar motor speedway at Rockingham Speedway. Pinehurst golfing and many more local courses within 45 minutes of the lakehouse. Charlotte, North Carolina is within 60 minutes and Albemarle, NC within 15 minutes. If you want a break from the water sports you can indulge in world class fishing on Lake Tillery this is the best location.

Garage Apartment: There is a rustic but nice and comfortable 1 bedroom 1 bath garage apartment on the property that is currently rented on an annual basis thru Sept 2017. After September it may be (assuming annual lease is not renewed) available for rental @ $85.00 per night plus lodging tax. It has 2 twin beds a combined living, kitchenette with a pull out twin sofa bed. It has a window air conditioning unit (v. central HVAC) that does a pretty good job of cooling but not as efficient as HVAC.

The current garage tenant has shared access to the dock area but has been wonderful sharing grills, campfires :) with the guests in the main house.

About Nick or Helen

This is our personal home since we live in Charlotte and use our home when not being enjoyed by one of guests! It's not your typical rental property since we use for our personal use and growing # of grandchildren. It's well decorated with the kitchen fully equipped.

I'm a retired banker and when I first found 'Tranquility' I felt my blood pressure go down by 20 points!

Nick or Helen purchased this house in 1997

Why Nick or Helen chose Norwood

The setting at the end of a canal is incredibly beautiful spreading over almost .8 of an acre. Fishing from the pier or sunning on the dock will also add to your family days of fun....

After many requests over the year of how nice a boat to rent would be by our guests.....we introduced an older but very functional 20 foot Harris Pontoon boat for 'our guests only' at a reduced rate from the marina's. We rent the pontoon boat for $125.00 per day or 600.00 per week plus fuel/taxes, etc. An independent boating agreement to hold us harmless is also required by any future renters.

But, what a wonderful way to see over 150 miles of Lake Tillery coastline spanning 2 counties.

Finally, before purchasing we chose this lake over Lake Norman (too many speeders/drinkers) and Lake Wylie in Charlotte. If you see 30-50 boats on a summer day that's a lot.

What makes this house unique

45 minutes from Concord Mill Mall/Matthews and about 65 minutes from the Charlotte airport.

Local shopping in Albermarle (Walmart, movies, restaurants, etc.) is about 10 miles from our home.

2 miles in Norwood you can find a more limited availability with one grocery store (Food Lion) and restaurants.

A great time

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this wonderful home the last two summers. We plan on doing it again ! It is the perfect place to get away to for some quiet family time. Plenty of room to do what you want, inside and out. The fishing from the dock is actually quite good, and the slip provided for your boat is more than adequate. I highly reccomend this property.

Listing and photos need to be updated!

  • 1 of 5

Our family rented this home primarily because pets are allowed. Great to be able to bring our dog, and we had a nice weekend, but several things to note. First, the photos on the listing are NOT current. The detached garage apartment is NOT available- in fact there is a long term renter who also has full use of the yard/dock- his boats, paddle boards, and jet ski are there! This was NOT revealed to use until AFTER we booked the house. We also rented the pontoon boat- VERY old and NOT clean and the gas gauge does not work. This listing needs to be updated so future renters can make an informed decision.

Owner's Response: Gary, I'm sorry that you had these concerns. I'd be more than happy to be more explicit on noting that there's a "main house" and garage apartment that has a long term renter. I will also talk to that renter to make sure his water crafts are not impeding access since it is a shared dock which I've outlined in the lease.... but again will be more explicit. On the boat in our numerous phone conversations I tried to manage your expectations of it's age and condition but once again will explicitly outline that to future boat renters..... I'm glad you still had a good time albeit with these few challenges that I've taken note to address. Take care, Nick

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area for a family reunion and wanted to visit and relax a few days. The property was wonderful, the grounds were level with just a few steps from the house to the dock. The children bought their kayaks and had a blast. The house was equipped with everything you need. Plenty of seating, beds (the bunk room was great) well stocked kitchen for cooking and eating in. We would love to stay at this location again, next time we hope to stay a week.

Property is well maintained, home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet, retreat. House was fully stocked with everything you need. Very clean. We stayed a full week and really hated to leave. My family are avid fishermen and caught approximately 200 fish right in that area, even from the dock fishing was good. Recommend this place to anyone. Would love to go back.
