Overview

About the property

Welcome to our spacious waterfront home located on beautiful Lake Norman in Denver, North Carolina. This home can sleep 12 in beds, has water views from almost every room, and sits peacefully on a quiet, relaxing cove. Enjoy your morning coffee on the screened-in porch overlooking 150' of lake front. Swim and play all day in our quiet cove with no boat traffic, allowing undisturbed swimming, kayaking and floating. Take to the lake in lots of uncongested areas for water activities with quick access to the main channel.

Located in the heart of Lake Norman, enjoy some of the finest eatery pubs on the lake. Go by water or land. The local favorite 'The Landing' offers live entertainment and wonderful food and is only minutes away. If the boat slips are full, the 'Tiki Taxi' will motor out to your anchored boat to bring you in. It's a one of a kind experience!

Our home offers 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. We have a large, fully equipped kitchen and a large living area on both the lower and upper levels. The large master bedroom with a king-size bed and bathroom are located on the upper level along with the kitchen, half bath and living room. The lower level holds the three other bedrooms, family room and full bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a queen bed, Bedroom 3 has two sets of bunk beds (4 twins), Bedroom 4 has 2 twin beds and and adjoining room with a bunk bed (2 twins).

The home includes use of a ping pong table and kayak.

Our boat and boat lift are not included in the rental, but Lake Norman Marina is located just outside our cove, where you can rent boats.

If you like to play golf, there are two public courses nearby: West Port Golf Course is 4 miles away and Verdict Ridge is about 8 miles away.

You will need to bring your own bath towels as they are not provided. Renters must be at least 25 years of age and present during entire stay.

About Betsy Scott

Betsy grew up in Raleigh going to Falls lake to swim and ski. Paul grew up in Winston-Salem and spent good times at friend's houses on Lake Norman. We live in Clemmons now with our four children.

Betsy Scott purchased this house in 2006

Why Betsy Scott chose North Carolina

We have both had a desire to live on the water our whole lives. We started looking at beach property but realized the lake is where our hearts are. Wanting to find a place close enough to home to allow easy weekend access, we started our search on Lake Norman. We bought this beautiful home as we were expecting our fourth child. We have enjoyed years of fun on the water and in this home with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this house we LOVED the cove right away. There are only two homes past ours in the cove which means adults and kids can swim and play in the water uninterrupted by boat traffic and the dock is not constantly rocking. The house has very large rooms which gives us plenty of space for our family get-togethers. We typically grill out and gather at the fire-pit in the evenings while the kids catch fireflies but we enjoy going to The Landing restaurant by boat or grilling our dinner on an island too.

GREAT SCOTT WAS THE PLACE TO BE

  • 5 of 5

Let me tell you about a wonderful place to take a vacation. That place is Great Scott of Lake Norman. The Scotts have really outdone themselves when it comes to providing comfort, safety for the little ones, serenity and a little touch of heaven. We stayed here for a week and I didn't want to leave. Situated on a cove of the lake, so you don't get the hustle and bustle of the boats running up and down, the fishing was perfect, caught my first fish less than 3 hours of checking in. The space was amazing, enough room for my entire family with still empty beds, my girls loved the ping pong table and kayak, my wife loved the screened in porch and the well stocked kitchen and me, well I loved the dock and the hammock and the peace and quiet. We did have an issue with the shower downstairs but Mrs. Scott was Johnny on the spot to making arrangements to have it repaired without any inconveniences to us. Being only minutes from our hometown, we had family and friends visit and they too were amazed at the spaciousness of the house and we used the fire pit to make s'mores. Met some of the neighbors who were very polite and courteous to us. I am so thankful for Paul and Betsy Scott for allowing such a beautiful place to be rented and surely hope that it is available next year when we plan our trip home.

Great weekend with the guys!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the GREAT SCOTT! The home was better than advertised and plenty of space. We had a group of 6, but could have easily slept double that (we had 5 empty beds). Already thinking about a summertime trip so that we can spend time on the lake.

Betsy was great to deal with and always had a quick response.

Thanks again,

Zach

I am from the area and still come "home" often, but as my sibling and my families grow we're outgrowing the homestead so this year we decided to look into renting a place with space. For a wedding in the Fall and then again Christmas we stayed at Great Scott. Lucking out with good weather we enjoyed some kayaking and ping pong tournaments while the spacious kitchen and dining table was perfect for all of to gather. The owners were very responsive to inquiries and made sure that we felt comfortable and welcome.
