About Carrie

We built the little house for our family. My Mom and Dad are both gone now so we decided to let others enjoy our home and have fun at the beautiful Kerr lake.

Carrie purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Carrie chose North Carolina

The little house is cozy, the lake is wonderful and it's just a nice hang out. Relax, kick back and enjoy the time you are here.

What makes this cabin unique

We built our house with log siding to have a little rustic but modern style living on Kerr lake. Our dock sits on deep water so there is always fishing or swimming. Come see for yourself.

Absolutely Perfect, Relaxing Lake Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely perfect for two couples or a family with 2 older children. Very comfortable, perfectly decorated, spotless and cozy! The cabin has everything you would need to enjoy a great stay! Carrie and her husband have attended to every detail and have not missed a thing! The lake is just a short walk from the cabin with an absolutely awesome boat dock! My husband & I live in Salisbury, MD and met up with our daughter, Bridget & her husband, Tim from Winnabow, NC. It was a perfect few days of just relaxing & chilling in the cabin and on our boat. We brought our open-bow Bayliner Boat and water tube. The boat dock is just 5 + minutes away and was nice to drop & load our boat! Highly recommend for your perfect stay! Thank you Carrie & Jim!

Owner's Response: We have tried to put everything in the little house for our guests. If we don't have it we will get what ever we can so it is in the house when someone arrives. Putting on the new decking has made the house look brighter on the outside. The new lounge chairs are very comfortable on the dock. Relax and lay back watch the birds soar above the clean water of this lake. We are always anxious to meet all our guests and hope they have a great time on Kerr Lake. Come enjoy!

Anniversary escape on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

It started out perfect for a last minute retreat on the lake from the reservations and contact with owners that made it so easy. Carrie and Jim thought of everything in their cabin for our comfort and convenience, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grill. Picnic area at the lake, lounge chairs on deck for watching sunsets that were beautiful. If I had to say what I liked about it best it would be hard because there was so much to like.Boat access, quiet,peaceful area of lake, (this was our first experience at Kerr lake). House was so warm and friendly, but was upscale with everything you might need and more. Have to give it a 10 for cleanliness for sure. Owners right next door if you needed anything but still felt so private. Nearby restaurants within short distances by car. Will plan another trip there for sure,wish we didn't have to leave. It truly gave us the rest and relaxation a vacation should be all about. Thank you Jim an Carrie for sharing your home with us. We have already referred many others to experience the same.

Great Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the best location we have stayed at while visiting Kerr Lake. The house is upscale and probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed. We were looking for a fun family weekend close to home. The deep water dock is large and has a ladder so it is easy to get in and out of the water. There is a picnic table located in the shade where you can sit and watch the boats while you eat and relax. Jim and Carrie are friendly and helpful. They made sure we new about the weekend fireworks which my son really enjoyed. Henderson is just 15 minutes away so you can eat out without having to drive very far. Awesome place to stay!

Owner's Response: We love people to enjoy their stay at our home. We feel it is a family place and want folks that come to feel that way about the little house, too. Jim and I do enjoy meeting everyone that come and stay with us. The neighborhood puts on a great fire works display and we where happy to have our guests enjoy them as well. Having the ladders on both sides of our dock makes it easy for everyone to get in and enjoy the water at Kerr Lake, come enjoy for yourselves.

Kerr Lake Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Kerr Lake and our first VRBO. It will be pretty hard to beat this experience. Carrie and Jim were so hospitable and the cottage was impeccable. Everything you need and more is here. It is so clean inside and so well done. All the finishes and fixtures are top quality and they really make you feel at home. Really, really close to VA (about 30 mins) and was able to try some good places to eat. The lake is just a short walk down from the house and the dock they have is really nice. The kitchen has everything you need to cook like home and their grill off the front porch is perfect. A comfy bedn and great bathrooms round out this relaxing weekend!!

Owner's Response: We have thought about things we would need to make the house comfortable. Jim and I are so glad we have ment the expectations of our guests. But for some reason we need to fix something we are quick to response. We want everyone to enjoy their experience when they are in " the little house at the lake". Come see for yourself, the lake is beautiful this time of the year. The weather has turned a little cooler and being out side is so nice. Sitting on the dock is relaxing and the great way to spend an evening. Come spend a few days and see for yourself.

First Time at Kerr Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Kerr lake and our first time using VRBO. We knew we wanted to stay here the minute we saw the listing. The house is exactly as it appears in the pictures, clean, comfortable, and cozy. Jim was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. There was plenty of room for parking the truck and the boat. The private dock was especially nice because we were able to put the boat in the water and then bring the trailer back to the house which meant we only had to put the boat in the water once. We cannot imagine a better place for an extended weekend getaway, Thanks Jim and Carrie for a wonderful vacation

Owner's Response: We are always happy to get a comfortable response from visitors. We wanted to make the little house warm and inviting for all that come visit. The beds are made and plenty of towels in the jack and Jill bathroom to accommodate. Kerr lake is a large gorgeous lake has 844 miles of shore line room to fish, swim, and just float on the clear waters. Our aluminum dock sits in deep water so you can always get your boat in and out without worring about the bottom. Two ladders on both sides of the dock let swimmers enjoy a swim from either side. Take you coffee down at dawn and relax while the sun reflects off the water. Come enjoy, first timers or those who have returned many times to the little house at the lake. Find out for yourselves.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay at this cottage. This was the nicest and cleanest place I have ever stayed. It looks just like the pictures on the website. We especially enjoyed the pier and covered boat slip. We had recently bought a boat and were getting use to it and it made it very helpful to have it there so we could just walk down to it. Also enjoyed swimming and fishing off the pier. Thank you Carrie and Jim for providing such a top quality place to stay!
