About Pam Lineberger

BC and I inherited this home when our son passed away in 2006. He built it in 2000 to suit his needs.

Pam Lineberger purchased this house in 2006

Why Pam Lineberger chose North Carolina

The home is located on a flat lot with a gradual slope into the water at the beach. It was built to be handicap friendly. There is a ramp from the garage into the house and an outside elevator from the upper deck to the lower patio. The master bathroom is equipped with grab bars. The home is ideal for families with children. The beach allows safe play for all ages.

Hope Mills, NC

Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

I've been visiting this property for years now and this year was the best one yet! Barney's has it's own private beach, water equipment, pier, etc. It's completed furnished inside and out with everything that you could need in order to have a completely fulfilled vacation? Marina is right across the street, and any eatery that you could chose is within 5 miles of this home? Location, Location, Location! :-) Waterway at Barney's is connected to Lake Norman. I haven't found anything that even remotely compares with Barney's. I can say this now, because I already have my reservations for next year. :-)

Owner's Response: Good reviews are always good to hear. The renters from Hope Mills are regulars and are welcome anytime. One thing, the home is on Lake Norman off the main channel and therefore a bit less congested.

Outstanding vacation "home" and "base of operations" for exploring

  • 5 of 5

From the onset of planning our first family vacation at LN, Barney’s House appealed to us based on the quantity and quality of reviews. Last September we travelled from Ohio to review first-hand about eight properties and selected Pam and BC’s.

During our week stay July 8-15, 2017 we found everything as advertised. The property is well-equipped, most importantly in the kitchen and with a great gas grille on the deck. It is well-supplied with towels, paper products, and other things we might have forgotten to bring ourselves, and is clean and well-maintained. Pam and BC live nearby and were very responsive to our needs getting acclimated to our new surroundings. We made extensive use of the “water toys” which included many “person-powered “ boats and inflatables. The younger and more adventurous among our multi-generational crew (age 8 mos to 75 yrs) took the kayaks and pedal boat as far as LN Marina for ice-cream and slushies (about a mile). A senior member made good use of the elevator to save wear and tear on osteo-arthritic joints.

Barney’s House was a great “base of operations” for side trips. We rented a high quality/high performance (150 hp) “tri-tube” Bennington pontoon boat from “Hank” at LN Marina for a day of tubing, and covered the entire lake from Cowan Ford Dam, back to LN State Park and return to LN Marina (… without getting lost! We found our good waterproof map adequate to keep track of the well-numbered buoys). If you are interested in nutritional matters, plan a side trip to the world-class Nutrition Research Institute in quaint Kannapolis. It is tied to UNC and even though its scale of research on the link between nutrition and genetics is unmatched anywhere else in the world, it may be relatively unknown even to locals. We ate out at “Big Daddy’s” and Lineberger’s Cattle Company, and visited the country store in Terrell. Check on meal service hours at Queen’s Landing, in that they don’t seem to provide full service mid-week.

The back-to-back “Jack and Jill” bedroom arrangements with their shared bathrooms served our family grouping well (the “seniors” enjoyed the master bedroom). Our grand-daughter, who was taking online college courses, had some difficulty in meeting submittal deadlines on homework because of down times with the Charter internet service. S’mores around the firepit were a hit.

Wonderful Home on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful home in May 2015. I'm sorry I never got back to give this review until now. Pam was so wonderful! She allowed me to have my wedding at her home and it turned out so great! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our wedding pictures looked so good on the dock. The guest enjoyed fishing on it too! Beautiful home inside and out. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation on Lake Norman! I look forward to renting this property again in the future!! Thank you again Pam!
