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.
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
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.
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.
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.
We had a great time staying in Great Scott over the Thanksgiving holiday. Family came in from FL, AL, GA, and NC and we had plenty of room and felt at home. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking a huge meal, including a 20 pound turkey. A small problem with the water faucet in the master shower, but Betsy had a plumber out in just a few hours to fix it : ) My boys loved paddling out on the lake in the kayak. Wonderful experience!
We had a sensational experience at this lovely home. It was: spacious, clean, well equipped and altogether lovely. Can't recommend it highly enough.
Property owners were wonderful. Setting up the location and making sure everything occurred smoothly was a process made very easy by the owners. Hope to make another trip to the Lake soon!
I came to Great Scott with 11 co-workers for a work retreat. We had a great and restful time. The house is very clean and well kept. There was all the cookware we needed to make meals (minus a crock-pot which we brought) and the beds were comfy. I would definitely recommend this place.
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.
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.
