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.

Best Lake Norman Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 stayed from July 8-15. We had 9 adults and 3 small children. The house was beautiful, clean, and large! We were pleasantly surprised to find that the rooms were larger than they appeared in the listing. The dining room table has been replaced and was huge. We were all able to eat together. The kitchen was VERY well-stocked and had everything we needed. The front closet is packed with board games and things to do. There an attached baby gate at the top of the staircase. The bedrooms were all spacious. We did use all of the beds in the house. The only downside to the downstairs bedrooms is that everyone (10 people in our group) had the one Jack & Jill bathroom. We made it work without issue but thought I'd note it. The cove has deep water in the center and was perfect for swimming and hanging out. We enjoyed a farewell bonfire with s'mores and a kiddie dance party on the lawn. The driveway was large and we had plenty of parking. There is also lots of outdoor seating! The screened in porch was wonderful! Betsy was so nice and helpful. The neighbors were friendly as well. You'll love it as much as we did!

Fabulous Great Scott!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Great Scott for a family vacation & wedding. The weather was fantastic, we rented a pontoon for the week & were able to tie it right to the dock. The lake was beautiful & so accessible. Although the sleeping was kind of funky with 6 bunk beds, we made it work. The upstairs great room & kitchen were so very large that we were all able to hang out & eat together for every meal (we had 8 adults & 5 little children). It was filled with all the cooking/eating utensils needed. The lawn was so expansive & lent itself to all sorts of games: badmitten, corn hull, can Jam, bocci ball & even smores over the fire pit. Lovely home - would definitely recommend.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation here. We rented a boat and spent most days on the water. We did take one day to go to Carowinds which isn't far away.

The neighbors to the left of the house (if facing the house from the road) were extremely nice and we enjoyed meeting them.

There are two TVs in the house but you can't change the channel on one w/o changing the other because the remotes work for both. I'm sure this could be fixed but it didn't bother us.

The boat house is a great place to eat.

Also, there is a marina right out of the cove for this house if you need to rent about. We missed this when renting, so I don't know how their service is.

Great vacation!

We had a wonderful vacation, lots of swimming, boating, kayaking. Fun for all ages.

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a beautiful cove away from the mainstream of the lake, yet close enough to Lake Norman Marina for boat rentals. The house is very well appointed. All the comforts of home. Huge kitchen which easily accommodates 12 for meals. All the equipment & utensils required for ease of meal prep. Plenty of comfortable beds. Great dock for safe swimming. Screened in porch for early morning coffee & relaxing anytime of day. A really great house can't wait to stay there again.
