North Carolina House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6 adults)

Whether you’re looking for a romantic weekend getaway or a family vacation, we’re confident “Mohican Shores” is the right place for you. This cozy cabin is located in a secluded area on a main channel of High Rock Lake, the second largest lake in North Carolina. A lakefront view is included in most any of our rooms. The two bedrooms and upstairs loft can comfortably sleep six adults. In addition, there is a pull-out oversized chair (Single) and two cots that could also provide three additional sleeping accommodations. The main room is surrounded by windows giving you a majestic, panoramic view of the lake. Sit in one of our cushioned rocking chairs on the deck and enjoy the spectacular sunsets of “Mohican Shores”. Torches line the deck to deter any unwanted guests. The cabin also has a wrap-around front porch, a stone, wood-burning fire place, and exterior fire pit to enjoy on those chilly nights under the stars. Guests have use of a canoe, paddle-boat and private dock. Feel free to bring your own boat and put it in the water at nearby access areas. For those who prefer the coolness of a mountain vacation, there is plenty of shade and a constant breeze off the lake most days. Picnics, cookouts or dining by the camp fire are one of the many options available. Dine out at any of the three waterfront restaurants on the lake, accessible by boat or car. Swimming is relaxing with plenty of deep water in front of the dock. Wear a life jacket , recline on a float or ride a flotating cushion or noodle. Stay cool while you think about your friends at work. Let those hot, humid, lazy days of summer be a refreshing memory on High Rock Lake this year. Enjoy the many types of fishing while here. High Rock Lake is a relatively shallow lake with many types of offshore structure. These points, humps and rock formations create excellent habitat for this lake's abundant population of game fish. High Rock is well known both locally and nationally as the home of the 1994, 1995, and 1998 “Bass- masters Classic Bass Tournament”. Bass fishermen from all over the nation know the area as the 'Crank-bait Capital of the World'. While the largemouth bass is perhaps the most well-known game fish in High Rock, it is certainly not the only one found in abundance. White bass, hybrid bass, monster catfish, bream, crappie, carpe and pike are also found here. If you enjoy swinging a club, there are many courses to choose from in our locale. McCanless and Corbin Hills Golf Courses are located off Bringle Ferry Road about 15 minutes from our cabin; Crescent Golf course is located off Jake Alexander Boulevard. Ask for additional information. Do you enjoy a faster pace? Then tennis may be your sport. Tennis courts are located at Dan Nicholas Park , about 8 miles from our cabin. Dan Nicholas Park is a great place to spend the morning, afternoon or all day. It is located on Bringle Ferry Road. Wildlife Viewing for those of us who enjoy the marvels of nature. Cranes, large red-headed wood peckers, deer, red fox, wild turkeys and owls roam the wooded and not so wooded areas near our cabin. Imagine your suprise (and theirs) as you 'happen' across the path of these special creatures....especially in the evening and just before dusk. One of the finest exhibits of animals in their natural habitat is located nearby. The North Carolina Zoo/Wildlife park is located only 45 minutes away in Asheboro, NC.

About Margaret Rusher

• Maggie and Ed Rusher, owners, live in Salisbury and enjoy the privacy and solitude of our 'Mohican Shores' home when we “need to get away.” Maggie is a former registered nurse educator at the local community college. Ed operated a family-owned retail tire business in Salisbury. We enjoy traveling, entertaining family and friends, working outside, playing with our grandchildren and pets, walking, watching sports and any type of water activity.

Margaret Rusher purchased this house in 2000

Why Margaret Rusher chose North Carolina

•We chose to purchase our lakefront vacation retreat at “Mohican Shores” because it is a combination of our love of the mountains and the absolutely breath-taking views of the water. Located only 17 miles from Salisbury, we are able to enjoy our cabin most weekends and many weekdays.

What makes this house unique

Ed and Maggie enjoy a cup of fresh hot coffee or tea in the early morning as we walk down to our dock. The scenic lake is calm and peaceful. A perfect place for meditation and reflection upon our many blessings. Life is always better at the lake. Sometimes our solitude is interrupted as the fish leap out of the water in the early mornings. The amount of artifical light is limited here so as to allow better visualization of shooting stars and other celestial bodies. The stars just seem more vibrant here. The cabin is in a very natural setting; much of the area is undeveloped.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maggie and Ed – what a wonderful time we had at your cabin!!.. We were overwhelmed with the hospitality that you extended to us. You really treat your guests great. We were overwhelmed with the setting, your home and the view which is absolutely one of the best on the lake. It was a much needed vacation for us and the fishing was excellent. Our son, 26 who lives with us, and is the fisherman in the family was very impressed – especially with the boat mooring system you have on your dock. This was a 10 for us – Many thanks for treating us so specially and for sharing your home!

Beautiful lake front vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 4 kids just returned from our vacation at this beautiful lake front home and we all had a really great time! We absolutely loved our "welcoming gifts", my kids especially loved the chocolate chip cookies! We used a lot of the amenities including the fire pit, hot tub, board games, and swimming in the lake. We used some of their floaties and pool noodles and it was so nice since I had forgotten to pack some. There was plenty of room for all of us to sleep and hang out. Initially I was disappointed that there was no wifi but then I was happy because my we were all tech-free for our vacation and spent all of our time doing things together! I would definitely recommend this home to other small families and we would love to return again in the near future!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived so late in the day that we were exhausted and just wanted a bed. We emptied our car, found the main bedroom and crashed.

The next morning we awoke to explore the house and property. Oh goodness - we surely won the lottery while we slept. There was even breakfast waiting for us when we woke up!!

The pictures do not properly show the beauty of this home. And there was so much that we didn't get an opportunity to partake of: the lake and dock, the paddle boat, the fire pit, the hot tub.

There were only two of us, so we can't speak to the other two bedrooms, but the master bedroom had a comfortable bed and high-end linens.

Maggie was very easy to contact and extremely helpful. We will definitely be back when we can spend more time and take advantage of all the property has to offer.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the setting absolutely beautiful, this house is incredibly comfortable and so nicely equipped. We love the huge views of the water, the many windows, the expansive decks and the dock. We enjoyed the hot tub so much. The kitchen is beautiful and stocked with so many useful items. In addition, the owners left us very thoughtful and tasty treats. Thanks so much! The decor is wonderful and the 2 beds and loft are just what we needed. We loved sunrise and sunset here. Thanks for giving us such a beautiful and relaxing place to stay!
