Perfect escape!

This house on the lake is everything someone would want in a getaway! The warm wood adorning it from floor to ceiling gives off such warmth and peace. The fireplace made of stone was the centerpiece of the weekend! The rain falling on the tin roof was the icing on the cake!

The kitchen was well equipped. The two bathrooms were very well kept and modern. The loft bedroom was warm and cozy. There were plenty of pillows and blankets. There were also towels, though I brought my own. Bed linens (sheets and pillow cases) were not provided.

15 minutes to the mall, if you're looking for a shopping day or a dinner out. 20 minutes to the airport.... but hidden from the hustle and bustle of the city. Absolutely perfect!

Great Cabin in NC!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed over NYE's with our dog and thought the cabin was perfect! Very, very clean and equipped with everything needed to make a meal. Our dog had fun meeting other neighboring dogs and playing on the dock. Our purpose for the trip was to see The Avett Bros. in Charlotte on NYE's and the cabin was close enough to the city - yet far away enough to get the peace and quiet of the country. Would rent this cabin again if in the area.

Hurricane Evacuation-cation

  • 5 of 5

We live in Charleston, SC and were desperately looking for a place to evacuate from Hurricane Matthew with our dogs. The owner responded quickly and was so great to us and quickly got us set up. We got there at night and thought it was really nice. The next morning we woke up and realized what a beautiful and serene paradise this place was. We stayed 3 nights and would have love to have stayed forever. It was quiet, peaceful, clean, fun, and our furbabies loved it. My daughter and husband fished, dogs swam and we even kayaked. We will definitely go back and it was so nice to relax while trying not to worry about what was happening back home. This place is definitely an undiscovered jewel.

a quite and lovely place to spend the holiday!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This cabin is located on a tributary arm of Mountain Island Lake, an impounded portion of the Catawba River. The dock and kayaks are a fabulous amenity. The deck overlooks the lake. The weather on Thanksgiving was fabulous and we took the kayaks out for a spin. This place is close to Charlotte and we hit the Art museums there one day, and also went to Kings Mountain National Park which is only about an hour away. All the arrangements worked out fine, and communication was great! Thanks to Shawn for a wonderful vacation.

Location

Activity and Interests

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

6.9 miles: The Birkdale Village - "Main Street Lifesyle" shopping

area, with restaurants, shopping, movie theaters, ice

cream shops, and much more.

13.1 miles: Downtown Charlotte - restaurants, theatre, nightlife

NASCAR Racing:

17.6 miles: Lowe's Motor Speedway

Hospital:

5.2 miles - Presbytarian Hospital, Huntersville (New)

Outdoor/Nature:

1.5 miles: Rural Hill Farm was the historic homestead of Major John

and Violet (Wilson) Davidson. As a patriot of the

American Revolution, John Davidson risked life and

property to support American independence. The 265 acre

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.

2.3 miles: Historic Latta Plantation was a successful cotton

plantation, and is now a living history farm. Experience

what life was like for planters, yeoman farmers, and

slaves of the North Carolina backcountry in the early

19th century.

2.3 miles: Carolina Raptor Center is dedicated to environmental

education and the conservation of birds of prey through

public education, the rehabilitation of injured, and

orphaned raptors and research.
