About John or Virginia
We are a family of five (mom, dad, daughter and two dogs (Chloe, Abby and Teddy, our poodles). When we moved to NC (about eleven years ago) we decided to buy a second home on a lake. We dreamed about having a cozy log cabin but never believed we would find one. I guess dreams do come true! But life is busy and we have little free time, so we've decided to let others enjoy this beautiful place.
John or Virginia purchased this House in 2007
Why John or Virginia chose Roxboro
There are a number of wonderful properties for rent on Lake Hyco but this home is a very unique 19th century cabin that has been modernized and offers a touch of class along with amenities not offered by other owners. Seeing is believing. If you are looking for ordinary, try one of the other fine homes listed for rent.
What makes this House unique
Everything about this cabin is unique and magical. When you sit on the balcony overlooking the lake, it is like no one else exists in the world except the Blue Heron who sits on the edge of the dock. When you wake and sit up in bed, you have an unobscured view of Hyco. The sound of rain on the tin roof is soothing and comforting. Soaking in the claw foot tub is a great way to relax. The 140' long dock allows you to swim, picnic and play without being cramped. It is the perfect place to get away.

Great place, great view, everything as described or better
Our family had a great holiday at the Cabin! The owner John was very accommodating as well as helpful getting us established at his property. We have wonderful memories of this Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Perfect setting for a relaxing holiday...
Awesome guests. Treated our home like it was their home. Despite this Thanksgiving being the coldest ever, it is wonderful to have visitors who were really able to enjoy what our cabin had to offer as well as Lake Hyco.
Inviting and cozy with deep water views.
Such a hidden treasure. Great fishing, stunning views from deck. Reminds me of childhood in Adhirondak mtns. Owner was so helpful and accomadating. If you appreciate a log cabin with beautiful antiques and modern convenience, this is the gem! Weber grill cooks steaks like a champ. I hope to be back soon! Thanks John! ( pictures don't capture the beauty of property).
Perfect place to unwind on the lake!
Great get away!
Peaceful and refreshing
Our family came away refreshed by swimming and fishing off the great deck, kayaking, and delicious food off the grill. Our souls were nourished by the view down the ivy-covered, wooded hillside to the placid lake and quiet conversations on the porch. We enjoyed the amenities of a hotel, but in a rustic, quaint, private setting. Would love to make it an annual tradition.
This home is even more beautiful than the pictures. Our family of 6 spent 4 nights in this Hyco Lake home. The home was immaculate! The bedrooms are large and each has it's own sitting area. A beautiful kitchen that was well appointed with kitchenware, condiments and spices. We spent most of our time on the large back deck overlooking the lake.John was the perfect host. He met us at agreed time and went over all the details that make staying in someone else's home much easier. What a retreat! Can't wait to visit again!
Our family had a fantastic stay at John's cabin. John was very accommodating and checked on us multiple times during our vacation.
The cabin is comfortable and unique, the setting is beautiful, and the lake/dock is outstanding for hanging out, fishing, swimming, and boating.
You were terrific guests. I am pleased your visit to Lake Hyco turned out well for your family. We don't have the time to enjoy the cabin our selves so It is nice to share our "on Golden Pond" with others who appreciate a wonderful lake and unique accommodations. Thanks for visiting.
Lake Hyco Marina has boats for rent as well as Kayaks. In addition, the Marina has a reasonably well stocked store as well as a restaurant for your dining pleasure. Some of the attractions listed may be up to a 15 minute drive from the lake house. The Wall Mart (5 miles) and Lowes (6 mile) is a short drive. The movie, bowling and ice skating complexes takes 15 minute. However, downtown Roxboro has a number of stores, cafes, library and coffee places which is only a 6 minute drive.
