Beautiful log home with panoramic views of Lake Hickory's main channel. This rustic style log home offers over 1700 sq ft and feels like a private escape. Rest and relax on the front porch swings and rockers while watching the sunset over the lake or jump in the water on private deep water dock with plenty of room to tie on your boat. The home is quiet private road with plenty of room for parking, yard play and boasts wide open water views on a peninsula. Public boat ramp only .5 miles away via road... visible from dock for easy in/out.
You can swim, fish, sunbathe or water ski right off the private boat dock and pier. And if you need more adventure, head 45 minutes north to take in some fresh mountain air as you hike or snow ski, depending on the season. You can even enjoy a family fun filled day at Tweetsie Railroad, located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. Or you can travel 10 minutes to downtown Hickory (Furniture Central) for great shopping and restaurants. The options are endless so give us a try!
After your full day of excitement you can relax by the fireplace, play a game with your family or sit back and watch a movie. Or you can escape away to a room by yourself and snuggle in bed for some quiet reading time. The interior of this home displays beautiful woodwork, a stone accented fireplace, and a warm ambience throughout.

Aug 12, 2012 Wisconsin visiter 283 Kirkpatrick Rd, Taylorsville, NC, 28681, United States (292847) - Date of Stay July 26, 2012 My family (consisting of myself, husband, and adult children) stayed at this wonderful, quiet, clean home while attending a wedding in Hickory. Everything was as listed in the description. Not the easiest to find in the dark, but we made it, with the help of a gps. The beds were comfy, the home clean and easy to find everything we needed. The lake is calm, loved it. We even saw an osprey catch a fish, then a bald eagle tried to take it away! Would recommend!

Jul 8, 2012 Great Lake House 283 Kirkpatrick Rd, Taylorsville, NC, 28681, United States (292847) - Date of Stay July 5, 2012 Just spent a weekend at this very nice log home, and we had a very nice time. It is clean, right on the water, and comfortable. Kids had a wonderful time swimming off the dock, and the porch is a wonderful place to just plain relax. Owners very agreeable. I am pretty sure we will be back!

Ann Hilliard said... 5 stars! May 2, 2012 Serene Vacation 283 Kirkpatrick Rd, Taylorsville, NC, 28681, United States (292847) - Date of Stay April 1, 2012 We had so much fun at this lake house. It offers wonderful views all around. From the swings on the porch to the dock by the water. Our kids were able to jump right off the dock as if they were jumping off a diving board and then pulling back up using the ladder. The mornings were so peaceful and evenings were serene with beautiful sunsets. We even went adventuring in the community park one day and then hiking in the nearby mtns of Blowing Rock. Thank you for allowing us to vacation at your home away from home.

Laura Griggs said... 5 stars! Sep 13, 2010 Beautiful Relaxing Retreat 283 Kirkpatrick Rd, Taylorsville, NC, 28681, United States (292847) - Date of Stay September 4, 2010 We spent last weekend at this property. It was a comfortable and homey retreat by the lake. It is a handbuilt log home with the feel of a cabin in the Northwoods as you sit out on the porch swing watching the sun set over the lake, or sit by the fireplace with an evening glass of whatever you like to drink. You can watch the kids jump off the dock and swim as you sun yourself in the afternoon. We enjoyed making a group meal on the island in the kitchen. You can see the lake out the dining room window. We were outdoors on the porch and talked and watched the sunset while the kids played, and made s'mores after dark. Many vacation houses have a pre-fab white and beige vibe to them, but this property feels like a home. Lake Hickory is a clean and quiet lake and a relaxing get away in a peaceful house on the hill by the lake.

Mark Ebert said... 4 stars! Aug 17, 2010 Great Place For A Family Getaway 283 Kirkpatrick Rd, Taylorsville, NC, 28681, United States (292847) - Date of Stay July 29, 2010 We had a great time at this Lake House. The log home was clean and spacious enough for 2 families. The owners were easy to work with and it was simple to get in and out. We brought our Jetskis. There is a really nice public landing right down the
Lakefront, near marina and boat put in, close to hiking parks, restaurants, Super Walmart, 10 minutes to Hickory and 40 minutes to Blowing Rock. Hiking, swimming, fishing, skiing, mtn biking and leisure play is all close by when you stay here. Blowing Rock, Boone, Taylorsville, Hickory and Asheville have festivals throughout the year and all are in close proximity to this home.
