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 single 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 Lake Norman of Catawba

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.

Map

The home is located in the middle of Lake Norman on the Western side. It's a 5-minute drive to Hwy 16 which takes you straight into Charlotte, I-485, or the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport, avoiding major highway congestion on I-77.

Great home!

  • 4 of 5

Lots of space, beautiful setting and well equipped! I rented the home to have a scrapbooking weekend with 5 other ladies. We had plenty of crafting room downstairs and tons of room in the kitchen dining area for meal prep and eating. The screened porch is awesome and a great place for morning coffee!

Met or exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This house was just plain GREAT!! Plenty of room for two families, If you are looking for a place set up for a family with children this is the one to go to. From the baby gate on the stairs, to the bunk beds and room set ups, to the swimming out in the channel, it is perfect. For any one who is bringing a boat, easy to dock as the channel is not busy, no wake to worry about. The location on the lake was great for us, no time at all to get to the main channel, but several areas to wakeboard close by that were not that busy. Betsy was great to deal with very quick communication. Location to stores was very reasonable, plenty of cookware at the house, tons of room, loved the back porch, both the top and bottom. Will look at this property again if we come back to Lake Norman. Ohhhhhh and the lake was AWESOME... loved it.

Labor Day 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family, (us our two sons & wives and 7 grandchildren), gathered for Labor Day and very much enjoyed this property! The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed for sleeping and fixing our meals. We enjoyed the rocking chair porch at all times of the day! We are big Alabama fans and watched the game on Saturday Night together on the big TV in the upstairs den! We all enjoyed the ping pong table too!! Loved exploring the lake by boat and jet ski and swimming, floating, paddle boarding and fishing in the cove! Even met some new friends with a trampoline in the water that invited the kids to swim over from the boat and play! Thank you so much for letting us stay at Great Scott!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented "Great Scott" with another family (11 total) and it was a great family vacation and a great house.

The canal just off the dock was deep. The kids were able to jump off and swim for hours with no boat traffic at all. It was an easy paddle out to the end of the canal as well. Water temp was great, views from every bedroom.

The house is clean and bright with plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen table is one of the best I have ever seen and fit our entire group for dinners and games.

Betsy was a pleasure to work with, answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was flexible with anything we needed.

I would absolutely recommend this house and would definitely stay here again!
