About Candy Dwyer

Hi, we have had this home for several years and really love spending time here with our family. It's a great place to get away and is perfect for families.

Candy Dwyer purchased this house in 2002

Why Candy Dwyer chose North Carolina

It's a beautiful area right on the water and in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this house unique

We love swimming and lounging on the floating dock and grilling on the deck in the evenings.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was well equipped. The large deck was a great gathering place for early morning coffee while the kids played and evening conversations after the heat of the day.

The floating dock was great for fishing and swimming. Overall, we had a fantastic vacation.

The house was even "more" than I expected!

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful and the perfect location with a wedding to attend directly across the lake. Family and friends could easily find us, plenty of room for all of us and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The gas grill outside was perfect for cooking for a large group. The only real problem we had was communication---cell phones just don't work properly there but that may be a real benefit if you are trying to "get away".

The house made our joyous occasion complete. We're thinking about coming back when things are not so hectic and we can take more advantage of the location. Certainly a wonderful home to enjoy with family.

More fun the second time around!

  • 5 of 5

We returned for the month of March again this year and everything was perfect. The weather could not have been better and we watched spring unfold in the area. We were able to play more golf and hike the OVT trail which we missed in 2015. A visit to Grandfather's Mountain was great fun too. The house has everything that you could possibly need and Wilkesboro has lots of shopping. We should not have visited the donut shop quite so often though.

Peaceful mountain escape

  • 5 of 5

We went as a large group of 2 families with multiple children. This rental was clean and stocked with everything that you could need. Lots of games and entertainment available in the home. Very conveniently located to Boone and Hickory. The owners were very accommodating and easy to book our stay with. They even put up a Christmas Tree with lights and decorations. We would all definitely stay here again. Great home!

What A View!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, granddaughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the lakefront home. The view could not be surpassed. The home was conveniently located to great shopping. And the home was so well laid out to accomodate us. The kitchen was so easy and functional. Everything was so comfortable and yet so pleasing. My daughter even said she had not been so relaxed in years! I would highly recommend this home.
