Memories............those wonderful thoughts tucked away and taken out time and time again.........

SAUNDEROSA is just such a memory. My families 'home' for the Thanksgiving weekend wedding of my daughter. SAUNDEROSA was the tranquil retreat for out of town family. Philip and Toni thought of and included everything anyone could ask for at their fingertips. The little extras did not go unnoticed.......fresh flowers, holiday touches, chilled wine.....certainly added to our stay. As mother of the bride I wanted everything perfect... all of the family, from Gramma to a busy ten year old, comfortable and entertained plus a few quiet moments. Morning coffee, out on the deck enjoying Lake Norman, wrapped up in cozy throws was a perfect way to start each day. A time for family to sit and chat before the day's events. From beautifully appointed rooms,luscious robes to wrap up in, to a fun game area, to the picturesque view.......SAUNDORSA has it all. Thank you, Philip and Toni, for making a very special family event even more special. SAUNDORSA is a memory I plan to revisit......not just in thought but in person.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year of spending a week at Lake Norman over Labor Day. The other houses we have stayed in have been good - but the Saunderosa is the best! The owners have thought of everything, including little things like welcome flowers and wine. The house is beautifully decorated and comfortable. I absolutely loved the pillow I slept on in the master bedroom!. The pool table, game table, dart board, hot tub and corn hole boards were well used by the time we left. There were so many different things to do. This end of the lake is much quieter, and we enjoyed renting a pontoon ( that was delivered and picked up) and roaming around the lake and doing some fishing. Sitting and drinking coffee on one of the many decks in the morning was a favorite of all. Everyone was in agreement - we will be back next year!

Saunderosa

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful and extremely clean. Tons of amenities to keep ourselves busy along w/a safe environment for our dogs. The Office Manager was exceptional as we were in transit to North Carolina and were arriving at our destination much earlier than anticipated but with her assistance she was able to make the property readily available for an early check in which was appreciated as we were coming from Michigan.

Our stay was fantastic and we are looking forward to coming back in 2018. The only factor of concern was in the beginning when trying to make payment w/VBRO, the communication wasn't as clear for the amount due which resulting in us having to make an additinal payment vs. two (1/2 of front to reserve and 1/2 before check in). As we had animals which we communicated in the beginning this wasn't added to the cost originally when communicated our entrire cost for the stay. It would be recommended to have all the fees / charges communicated in the very beginning to the customer vs. continuously adding addtional charges after the fact.

Thank you

beautiful and fully equipped and wonderfully decorated

  • 5 of 5

the property was great. the only complaint i have is the bbq grill did not work well. we could only get one burner to light.

by way of recommendations, you could use an outdoor shower for when coming out of the lake, maybe somewhere along the deck or next to the house.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a truly wonderful vacation home. This beautiful home is wonderfully maintained, has everything you would possibly want or need, and such an amazing outdoor space. Our family had a relaxing, peaceful vacation, and loved the ability to jump on a kayak or paddle boat to enjoy the lake. The owners thought of everything that you might need or want to make your vacation easier, and it made a world of difference. The home was impeccably clean, organized, and everything was labeled! Our fur babies also enjoyed sitting on the dock to watch the boaters and swimmers. We will absolutely be back again! Thank you!
