About Alicia Graham

Both of us grew up near the water -- He lived most of his life on coast of Georgetown and Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, whereas I grew up in the tropical islands of the Philippines. After retiring from a busy IT career, I am rekindling my passion for resort/property management by sharing our waterfront family compound on Lake Norman to visiting guests and their families in the area.

Alicia Graham purchased this house in 2007

Why Alicia Graham chose North Carolina

Troutman is a quaint little town on the north side of Lake Norman. We found this 'piece of paradise' as a quick getaway place from the hustle and bustle of work life 17 years ago. Not one moment of regret. The peace and tranquility refreshes our souls after a hard day's work. Why not share this special place with everyone else?

Guestbook comments from the owner

We actually stayed here during Business Meetings being held in Davidson. It was so nice coming home in the evenings to a true "home"! Everything was more than expected and gave us plenty of personal space, but room to get together in the evenings and relax. We all truly enjoyed the house and surroundings!

We have several more trips over next year and will surely be backsoon!! Thanks!

You can't ask for anything more than what you have there. Nice dock fits boats and jet skis. Easy access to shopping and dining. House Is very well-maintained with a nice view.

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at this property and it is great. The house is clean, modern, and very spacious. The two master suites are really nice for multiple couples and the upstairs is huge. Parents have their go upstairs. The layout of this house is well thought out and really lends itself to ample family space but also separation.

The cove is great for swimming and easy to dock boats. Really safe and secure area for kids to kayak, fish, and/or swim. The owners provided two kayaks, a canoe, a paddle boat, extra fishing poles, life jackets, and pool noodles.

We had a 24' pontoon boat and a 19' bass boat and were able to dock both of them with no problems. The boat launch at the property was really convenient. There is virtually zero boat traffic in the cove.

The owners are really friendly and communication was great. We left on a Saturday and had notification of our pending damage deposit refund the very next day.

You would be hard pressed to find a better place at Lake Norman.

Beautiful, spacious property

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything! We really enjoyed the beautiful & comfortable furnishings. The lake was so much fun and the boats really sold the place for everyone. My 6 year old learned to kayak for the first time. Having 2 kayaks to go around the lake was wonderful. Being at the end of the road added privacy and peace and quiet. Wish we could have stayed longer and I am really hoping to come back. Thank you so much.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying on Water Lane. Loved the house and cottage this year as much as last! Alicia and Jeff attend to your needs in a prompt and courteous fashion. The dishwasher died while we were there and a new one was installed quickly. The damage deposit was refunded before we were even back on the main road (well, maybe not that fast but within 24 hours)! The addition of the twin beds in the upstairs bedrooms was a nice surprise as were the 2 kayaks. It is very close to everything you could possibly want. The only minuses for me are.. 1) the neighborhood dogs run free which presented a problem for my dog who doesn't like strangers 2) the path to the lake is not smooth making it difficult for an elderly parent to navigate 3) it would be nice if the entire back deck was covered as it gets the afternoon sun. Thanks for a great vacation!! If you want a beautiful, comfortable place to stay... look no more!!

A beautiful place to stay

The house and cottage was beautiful and it was very clean inside. We love sitting outside on the deck and looking at the water. We will recommend this property to anyone that wants to stay.

This is a great house on a really nice and private lakefront

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for the last 3 or 4 years at Lake Norman and intend on returning next year! It is simply our home away from home. It is alway clean, beautiful , and comfortable! The kids love swimming off the dock and using the kayaks, and canoe. The father in law loves to watch the wildlife and fish. The rest of us love the boat tied up right outside, for skiing, tubing, going to dinner, and house touring. Something for everybody. Alicia and Jeff are very attentive if you need anything. We travel with 4 generations and everybody can eat together, and still have space to escape in privacy with 5 bedrooms! This is our Lake Norman home, till we find our own. Thanks Alicia and Jeff
