Overview

Denver House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Beautiful Lagoon and fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Spacious home sits on a pristine property nestled on a quiet cul de sac. Everything we needed was provided with plenty of living space. Perfect water access for kids swimming and boating with no risk of tides or the danger of other boats. This was one of our best vacation rentals from VRBO to date and we have been using them for over 15 years. I have never rented a property twice but will consider doing so with this gem. One week was not enough and will consider two weeks next year. I finally want to thank Betsy Scott for being a hospitable and attentive host. Betsy goes out of her way to make sure you are satisfied. From the bottom of are hearts, thank you for helping to create such wonderful memories and sharing your home.

Great Scott perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

Five of us traveled from Utah to Charlotte to have a family reunion near our daughter who lives in North Carolina. This home was so perfect in every way with 8 of us (7 Adults 1 Toddler) we never felt crowded there was plenty of room. I loved the deck/screen porch it allowed my grandson to travel inside and outside but never worried about him getting near the lake. The fire pit was perfect to roast marshmallows, and visit. The dock provided the place to fish and dock our boat we rented. It is so quiet and peaceful off of the main channel you felt like you were in your own little serenity spot. We will be returning again someday! The kitchen table and picnic table on the deck were big enough for us all to gather and eat together. We played cards til late at night and loved hearing the toads croak. Kayak was awesome to paddle up the other channels to explore and look for ducks. All and all we had a terrific time! Highly recommended. Home owner was always so helpful with any concerns or needs we had and provided with all the local near places to go. I agree with another review the pictures do not paint how beautiful this place is.

Great Scott is way way nicer then the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at GREAT Scott ...son was married near by and we had a great family reunion . House was very comfortable with a great floor plan. Kitchen table is huge and we could all sit about and have a few cocktails and lots of laughs. One word of advise...use Betsy's directions we went by the GPS and all got lost.. Took us down a dirt road and told us we arrived. It was not to far away but definitely not the house or right street.
