Romantic Lake Cottage Retreat

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 11, 2014
Studio, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

This is a great time of year on Lake Norman....The hummingbirds are humming...Things are flowering and lush....Everything to see while sitting on rocking chairs right on the lake. This seperate boat house is set up as hotel suite on one level...

Right on Lake Norman ....With a full wrap around deck....

This is our guest house, not just a hotel It's like being at home ... away from home.

A perfect romantic getaway for TWO ...(Maximum guests 2 NO exceptions)

It is the perfect retreat...private but not far from everything

It is one large sunny great room with a very open feeling.

The bathroom was just remodeled with beautiful tile shower and new

vanity and sink. The entire inside has been freshly painted and updated.

Enjoy the views from the brand new picture windows.Watch the sunsets and moonlight

reflect off the water...of your own private deck.

The kitchen is fully equipped..

Minutes from Mooresville and all shopping

AMMENITIES ARE FOR REGISTERED GUESTS ONLY

No Smoking inside property(to do so would be termination of stay with no refund)....

Outside is fine as long as you respect the lake!!

The property has a No Pet Policy! Sorry...too many people are allergic

There is no dockage for boats....There are several public access locations all within 5 minutes away

'Rusty and Brenda were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the coziness of the one room bungalow so much, we think we could retire in a similar place. Everything you need all in one big room- fabulous! I found the view out all the windows my favorite part of the stay.

'With the cleanliness of the place and the smell of the towels I felt like I was home rather than in a hotel'

'We truly enjoyed our stay... We did not want for a thing.... This cove is quiet and filled with nature...From the hummingbirds to the blue heron. I have never seen my husband unwind and relax so quickly. We hated to leave'

'All your little extra touches were greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your hospitality and kindness'

We thoroughly enjoyed the boathouse. The place is decorated just right . It is a perfect getaway for 2 people. Your hospitality is wonderful and not overwhelming. I'll be sure to pass your info along to anyone I know coming to Lake Norman'

We know that we found the Best Deal on the Lake! And the Hot Water in the shower is something I wish I could take home with me. Can't wait to tell my friends and family!

I LOVE this place!!

  • 5 of 5
You will love this place too . . . it is hummingbird nectar for the soul!

Absolutely beautiful location, wonderfully comfortable, cosy and well equipped accommodation and wildlife all around to enjoy. Turtles, the blue heron, squirrels, ospreys and of course the hummingbirds. The lake is warm and gorgeous to swim in and cool down in.

Brenda and Rusty are fantastic hosts, couldn't be more welcoming and yet happy to leave me to it to enjoy the space, peace and solace I so badly needed. Came here feeling pretty frazzled and worn out from a really tough few months in the UK and after just a day, I felt re-energised, relaxed and rested.

Everything you might need is here, and if not, it's just a short drive down River Highway to all the usual places.

I have loved every moment of being here and the best thing is I get to come back in a week!

Upon booking Brenda the owner welcomed me and my wife and was looking to meeting us both. When we arrived the boat house was well appointed and was just as described, cool inside since it was 90 degrees outside (priceless) with the deck overlooking the lake it was more than inviting. The next morning Brenda the owner welcomed us in person and assured my wife and I that she was just a phone call away if we needed anything.
This a great place to relax and unwind and enjoy the lake views, with restaurants and shops close by. We are already making plans to return. This is a undiscovered gem on Lake Norman.

Best Vacation Spot EVER

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I were looking for an affordable week long get away starting the July 4th weekend. We were very lucky to come upon Brenda and Rusty's boat house with a vacancy during that week. We didn't know what to expect because many times if something appears too good to be true, it usually is. This was not the case with this property. The entire house was very clean (which was an importance my girlfriend stressed) and filled with everything we needed. We did not want for anything during the entire week. The property is very private and quiet as well. We were able to walk into the water from the dock and the water was an amazing 75 degrees. Rafts were provided for us and we just laid out on the water for hours at a time. There is also so much to do in the surrounding area. Great restaurants are within a 10 minute drive. Boat and jet ski rentals are also within 10 mins of the property. This was the best vacation destination ever and we will most definitely be returning.
