Locust Grove House Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Comfortable 4BR, 3BA lakefront home in private, gated community. This retreat is large enough for extended family vacations, and is close enough for weekend getaways.

Master BR has queen bed, TV with DVD, lake view via patio doors so you can walk out to the Lake; BA down the hall. 2nd BR has a queen bed and en-suite private BA, 3rd BR has a double bed and BA down the hall, 4th BR has double bed with bathroom down the hall. Family/TV room downstairs room has one large sofa, Internet connected flat screen TV/DVD. Upstairs family/ TV room has one large couch and one small couch, flat screen TV and DVD. House sleeps 8 adults comfortably. Every room has a ceiling fan.

The main living area is about 15’ by 25’ with vaulted ceilings and skylights. It is an open plan living/dining/kitchen space with panoramic views of lake, with sliding doors that open onto a big screened in porch, complete with comfortable furniture for eating and relaxing.

The level lot with unobstructed views of private dock and beach in quiet no wake zone cove at the end of the lake has almost 6 feet of deep warm water. Easy access in and out of the water via either the ladder or our small beach. The 1 canoe, 2 kayaks and fishing gear are available for guest use. Life Jackets, rafts, sand toys etc are all there. We are also swimming distance from a public beach called Ramsey’s Beach. Great for little ones learning to swim who want to have a sandy walk into the waters.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and really enjoyed the house, the porch, and the lake. The house was clean and good sized - more room than we expected from the pictures. There were a few minor things that it would be helpful for the owner to fix including the dishwasher rack, lack of oars for the canoe, and missing chairs in the dining room.

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer, so glad enjoyed the house!! I'm sorry that you did not find the oars stored on the dock in the large built-in storage box. It's filled with toys, oars, and summer fun!

Great accommodations, lake views, and owner communications!

  • 4 of 5

Lots of space for all--6 adults and 2 teenagers!! We had a great time, thanks for sharing your lake home! Decorated very cute and home stocked with everything we needed! Beautiful lake views, enjoyed kayak and deck! Just a note for future renters to be sure to separate recyclables before bringing to local compactor - keep separate bins for glass, aluminum, plastic (no plastic bags!) and paper. Sorry if I missed something in pre check in instructions regarding that!

A Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults and 2 children LOVED our week-long vacation at this house. The open-concept living space allowed us to be together while cooking, playing board games, and watching movies. The large screened porch overlooking the water was a big draw for us, too. There were plenty of bedroom options for our group, and we thoroughly enjoyed the recreational opportunities on the lake and in the wider community.

Thank you for sharing your lake house with us. We hope we can make a vacation there an annual event!

Great Weekend Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for our five women mini-college-reunion. It was an easy and short drive for four from DC and National Airport, and not too far for one North Carolinian. The house is immaculate, the beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked with all the equipment you'd need for cooking or baking. The view of the water from the screened in porch and the main eating / living rooms was beautiful. Even though it rained most of the weekend we were very happy to be in this lovely home, and did not venture out but for short walks in the nice neighborhood and by the lovely lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We love our lake house and have shared many special moments there with friends and family, but it is really special when someone reminds us how lovely it is. Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Lovely lakefront home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a stay at this bright and cheerful house. We were six adults, one baby and two dogs. Everyone had ample room! The house is very clean and well decorated. It is much larger then the pictures depict. The screened porch is a great place to have dinner...we enjoyed grilling and then gathering around the large table.

Of course, the three bathrooms are a plus. Also, there are two sitting areas downstairs which make it even better to get away and read.

We loved this home and hope to return.
