About Sid and Kate Hawes

We are a husband and wife team, a commercial airline pilot and nurse anesthetist respectively, so to say we have an eye for detail may be an understatement. We love lake living and are excited to share the experience with you. If we can do anything to make your stay more enjoyable, always let us know!

Sid and Kate Hawes purchased this house in 2014

Why Sid and Kate Hawes chose North Carolina Piedmont

We love lake living. We discovered this diamond in the rough in September of 2014 and we knew with a lot of work it could become something special. Originally built in 2007, but largely unfinished, we relished putting our personal touches on this custom built home.

What makes this house unique

Lake views from 4 of the bedrooms as well as main living areas. Located at the base of the lake, near the dam, with access to entire lake and deep water. Luxury accommodations. Spacious, with almost 5000 sq feet of well appointed living.

Family Fun on High Rock Lake

  • 5 of 5

Sid and Katherine's home truly exceeded our expectations. Our family has spent many summers at our own lake house in Michigan - so we had very high standards for a lake and a home on the lake. We did not expect to have such a perfect experience with the home and the lake. Sid was always a text or phone call away if we had questions. He was so gracious. We never met in person but I felt like I had a friend. We enjoyed so many things

- The Theatre room became a nightly habit for the adults. Once the kids were in bed.

- The kitchen had it all - high end appliances that more than did the job. No shortage of cookware and cooking utensils.

- The neighborhood dock was right next door - it was so close it seemed like it was on the property. We parked our boat for two weeks with no problem. We put our lounge chairs on the dock every day and we spent the days swimming off the dock and going on boat rides.

- The gated neighborhood had its on boat ramp. The launch was so easy. They also had a boat storage area where we left our trailer.

- The lake is huge 2nd largest in NC - we went to the Marina for dinner on Thursday nights- Filet Mignon special for 11 bucks cooked perfectly included a nice salad bar. This is a marina not a fancy restaraunt - great burgers for lunch when out on the boat.

- The Wifi worked great. All the TVs and sound systems were state of the art and easy to use.

- Our families had plenty of room with 5 bedrooms and lots of living space.

The bottom line was we all truly had the perfect vacation.

Thanks Sid and Katherine

Fabulous House for Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5

Our family just celebrated Thanksgiving at this lovely home. We slept nine in the house and on Thanksgiving Day had 16 people around the tables. It never felt crowded and the house has something for everyone: a wonderful screened in porch for the older generation, a fire pit for the college kids, and a movie theater and ping pong table for the children. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans and utensils, and we had all we needed to cook and serve a large traditional Thanksgiving meal. We loved that it was next to a nature preserve and each day some members of the family enjoyed walking or running the beautiful trails there. And my husband is a kayak fisherman and says that High Rock lake is his new favorite fishing spot after catching fish every day there, including a 30 inch striped bass! Thank you for sharing this special retreat with us.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long Memorial Day weekend with some extended family at the Hawes' beautiful home. It was perfect. The house is nicely remodeled, very spacious and comfortable. Although there is no private dock, the neighborhood dock right next door was just as good. We made great use of the waterfront, theater room, grill and ping-pong table. The owners were very responsive and helpful. I would give my highest recommendation.

Quiet, spacious, luxurious home on a easy lake

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here in June for approximately ten days was terrific for our family of five. The home is modern, spacious and most comfortable for all members of the family. Cable TV, well appointed kitchen, outdoor deck with screen, comfortable beds and bunks for kids if they desire. We rented a pontoon boat and a jet ski from a nearby operator to joy ride around during the day and early evenings and found High Rock Lake to be warm and calm with little boat traffic. The private boat dock is just in front making easy to run back and forth.. In the evenings we enjoyed a simple camp fire and watched fireflies dance about. I would recommend this home for anyone, we had a great time.

Amazing Weekend...great location and the home was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a long over due reunion of college friends that had not seen each other in over 40 years. The home was just perfect and the lake was just great. The neighbors are wonderful and so very friendly.
