Lake Norman of Catawba House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Limit 6 people)

This guest house is located on a Lake Norman cove fed by BeaverdamCreek. The water is deep and inviting. It is a fantastic getawayfor a couple, young family, fishermen or fisherwomen. The upstairs level has a queen size bed in the bedroom and a full bath. It has been newly outfitted with hardwood laminate and tile. It has been freshly painted. The living-dining area is homey and the kitchen is fully equipped with all amenities. There is a dining room table for six. It has a brand new 40' flat screen TV and blu ray player. Wireless internet is provided. The living room opens to a deck to enjoy sunshine, morning coffee and lake view. Downstairs, a large, brand new second bedroom has been built and furnished with two queen size beds and flat screen TV and DVD player. It has its own half bath for convenience. In addition to the porch at the guest house, our visitors also have the use of the porch and a second kitchen in front of the lake level of the main house. A gas grill, patio table and chairs, and swing are available to our guests.

The fishing and boating enthusiasts will be delighted with the use of the boat ramp and slip that come free with the guest house rental. A second slip may be rented for an added charge. Guests can rent a boat from local businesses or bring their own, insured boat and jetskis and avail themselves of the free boat slip. Swimming and fishing are enjoyed by many, and the lake is perfect for these activities. An added extra is the free use of our paddle boat, a Walker Bay rowboat, two kayaks, and a brand new 15.5 foot Old Towne canoe for those wanting a leisurely exploration of the cove.

Occupancy of the property may not exceed six people. Those six or less people are to be indicated on the agreement. Occupancy over the amount indicated will result in eviction and forfeiture of all rental monies. All rentals are to families and responsible adults (26yrs. or more) only. No high school, college or civic groups, chaperoned or not, are permitted. Violation is grounds for immediate termination.

We are pet friendly. Your small to medium size dog (40 lbs.) or cat (you may bring 2) is welcome for $45 each per visit. You can include the fee for one dog in your payment and bring the fee for the second dog with you. I can only list one but I know there are those with two and we welcome two. Bring papers from vet that shows the animals are up to date on the shots including rabies shots.

RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR GUESTS:

Hi Jim and Vivia,

We had a great time. Jim and Vivia were gracious hosts. The residence was a short walk to the water, plenty of fish in the lake, warm water to swim in, quiet, and the kayaks were fun. The rooms were clean. That's two thumbs up for us! It's about a 5 to 6 mile ride to multiple restaurants and plenty to do. Thanks for your kindness. Ed and Judy

'Thank you for allowing us to enjoy the peace and tranquility ofyour guest home. We enjoyed the relaxing weekend and hospitality!' Vanessa

'Our week at the lake was so relaxing. The accommodations werecomfortable and even my son said he felt like he was at home. Iappreciated the respect and privacy you gave our family. We felt like we had the place to ourselves with the luxury of knowing help was just a call away if we needed anything. You both went out of your way to meet the needs of our family, and by the end of our stayI felt like we had made some special friends! I will definitely

tell friends about your hospitality and the great accommodations waiting for them at Lake Norman. Thanks again!' Connie and Bill

'Thanks! Again, we had a very enjoyable stay!!! Your hospitality goes above and beyond what we could have expected. Steve says thanks for allowing him to use your new rowboat! We will see you again...' Joyce and family

About Jim and Vivia Tatum

Our guest house was built in 2003. We lived in it as our home was being built. We enjoyed that experience and wanted to share the fun with others. Welcome!

Jim and Vivia Tatum purchased this house in 1995

Why Jim and Vivia Tatum chose North Carolina

We loved this property at first sight! The cove is beautiful and our water very deep. it's proved ideal for boating, fishing and all other water activities. Our view is unparalleled.

What makes this house unique

One of our unique benefits is providing our guests with a wide selection of non motorized boats. These boats are available to our guests free of charge. Welcome!

We hit the jackpot! We live in Arizona and came for 5 weeks so we could be close to the grandkids in Charlotte. The spacious downstairs bedroom with 2 beds was perfect

for the weekends with our family and our hosts were kind enough to allow us to rent the downstairs on an ‘as needed’ basis.

The house is clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed....even

a big screen TV with plenty of channels. Didn’t have to ask for a thing because it was

all there already.

The grandkids had a blast swimming off the dock, kayaking, paddle boating, row boating, and fishing. There is a hot spot off the dock for small fish that the grandkids kept grandpa busy with. He couldn’t bait the hooks fast enough. Dock provides nice shade and benches for the adults to sit to watch the kids or the beautiful sunsets in the evening.

There is a grill, patio and completely equipped kitchen right down by the dock that we also had access to for a cookout after a full day of fun.

We were lucky to be there for Jim’s smoked pork that he shared in abundance....it was DELICIOUS! The chicken even provided the kids with a couple of fresh eggs.

Wonderful hosts, safe, quiet, well equipped, comfortable, accommodations. This is

definitely a 5 star find!

Owner's Response: What a treat to have some long term guests during out off season! We have a chance to really make friends with our guests who stay for several weeks. We have often had guests who are visiting with family nearby or scouting the area for a home for retirement. Our accommodations are excellent for whatever reason a person has to come and stay for a block of time. Thank you for being such perfect guests!

Beautiful place and a hidden treasure for the area.

  • 5 of 5

Although I didn't get to enjoy all that the property had to offer, it was such a beautiful place to stay and I would recommend this vacation spot to anyone. A definite home away from home.

Lovely lake cottage, all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights at the cottage with our small dog and it was wonderful being able to spread out and relax. I spent a lot of time on the glider on the dock sketching the scenery. We enjoyed kayaking the cove, entertaining on the upper deck and taking lots of walks. Jim and Vivia were very hospitable yet gave us privacy. I would rent this home again, and recommend it to others. Thank you Jim and Vivia for a wonderful stay.

Lake access, free use of kayaks

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as advertised.

We came for a weekend to enjoy the lake access and free use of kayaks.

Owners live in the main property directly on lake. This rental building is behind their house.

The owners are helpful and friendly.

We were able to bring our dog also.

Very good overall.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed yourself on wonderful Lake Norman! Your children were wonderful and enthusiastic. We hope you'll come again! We offer free use of our kayaks, canoe, paddleboat, and row boat. In addition to our guesthouse with brand new deck with lake view, our guests have the free benefit of the lake level patio and adjoining extra kitchen which includes the paddles and life vests. The panoramic view is breathtaking! Many of our guests come back over and over because of this fabulous view, the very nice dock, and the almost 200 feet of private shore line.
