We never fathomed you could “get away from it all” in a town of 45,000 people.

Huntersville is a close in suburb of Charlotte, but aside from being able to see the planes on approach to Charlotte airport, you’d swear you are in Boofooville. Located on a dead end road, this cabin was just what we needed for our combination getaway from Chicago and check out Charlotte expedition. Everything is exactly as advertised. Any problems we encountered were either self inflicted or beyond Shawn’s control. On the self inflicted side, let’s just say I’m better at cooking on an electric stove than I was when we arrived. On the not Shawn’s fault side, the TV in the cabin is equipped with a digital antenna which is sensitive to the whims of the weather. That, and we found AT&T’s cell coverage to be virtually nonexistent. The internet worked well, which was critical as my wife is in school online. My only other recommendation for potential renters is watch your head in the upstairs bathroom.

Overall, a great stay. Remember me talking about being in the boonies? It’s only ten minutes to the middle of civilization.

Cozy and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cabin, perfect for our stay in Huntersville. Cabin was very clean and equipped for the most part. I'd recommend bringing your own paper products such as toilet tissue and paper towels. Also bring kitchen towels if you plan to cook anything. Nice stay, will stay here again.

Cozy private cabin. Great stay with our 2 small dogs!

Classic cabin design. It was a great way to enjoy lush NC greenery near a nature center with trails, while being just 20 minutes to the heart of Charlotte's hussle and bussle. Huntersville has super restaurants and grocery stores.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner brought by a new patio umbrella and was a pleasure to talk to and get an idea of the surrounding area. Very nice kayaks which we used a lot, everything worked well in the house. Very comfy living room area.

Map

Mountain Island lake is a hidden gem in Charlotte. As the water

supply for Charlotte, and home to multiple nature preserves, it

enjoys extra vigilance in keeping it clean. It is quieter and closer

to the city than any other lake in Charlotte yet still has 62 miles

of waterfront for fishing and boating activities (ski, kayak, sail,

jet-ski). It has been historically a fisherman's dream (A boat slip

is included with the rental).

Shopping/Restaurants/Theatre:

5.2 miles: Major Grocery stores and restaurants (I77, Exit 23)

6.1 miles: Northlake Mall (New) - shopping mall, movie theatre,

restaurants

remnant preserves magnificent rural vistas and offers

special events, walking trails, self guided tours and,

with reservations, wagon rides and guided tours eaturing

plantation home ruins, smoke house, ash house, granary,

the original one-room 1890's school house, the 20th

century farm house, and the Rural Hill Burying Ground.
