Lovely, quaint cabin

  • 4 of 5

Our family met at the cabin for a Father's Day weekend gathering. The cabin is lovely inside but could use some attention to the exterior, however this did not deter our family from a great weekend. Two of our grown children stayed with us comfortably and the other two drove in daily as they live close by. Everything was in working order and we had no problems during our stay. Our reservation was made at the last minute but the owner was still willing to work with us. We absolutely loved Mountain Island Lake as it is so calm and tranquil. Our only complaint was that the grass was high and the yard looked unkept but once again, we booked at the last minute so perhaps the owner was holding out on landscaping till a later date.😊?

Cabin is cute and cozy.

  • 3 of 5

The exterior grounds are less than impressive with high grass and no trimming. Beds are a bit bumpy and hard and there are no mattress covers. The towels provided seemed to be the left overs, unmatched and spotty, no wash cloths. The exterior lower porch had to be swept because it was full of debris. Just seemed that no one came to check on the property prior to our arrival.

The new bathroom showers are very nice, but need some tweaks with loose fixtures. We loved the use of kayaks and the lake is beautiful. Gas grill had propane and that was nice to cook out.

The cell service was very spotty.

Adorable cottage on water

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the cabin/cottage. The cottage is adorable and right on the water. It was very clean!!! I've stayed at many cottages and this was the cleanest I've been to by far. No bugs at all inside the cottage. We were able to swim a bit off the dock. Fire pit is right next the water - great views. Across the lake is a nature preserve, so you don't have to look at houses while taking in the scenery. The neighbors are quite close, but there was no issue with that. The owner answered my phone call and came to fix a small issue right away. Grill, stove, fridge, and dishwasher all worked fine. The location is a great perk - only 25 minutes from Charlotte airport and less than 10 minutes to a grocery store. The inconvenience was that sheets and pillow cases were not provided. This took up alot of our luggage space since we were flying. (I did not give this 5 stars because for me to give 5, it would have to be perfect which is very unlikely anywhere)

Rustic

  • 4 of 5

The photos accurately describe this rental. It is situated on a sheltered section of the lake with no housing opposite, so the dock area was somewhat private and calm. We enjoyed bonfires with the many sticks in the yard left from winter. During an extended stay with some chilly weather, we were wishing for more TV options. Light switches work fine but it takes awhile to master them. This area is away from the busy traffic patterns around Charlotte, which we appreciated. We would not hesitate to vacation here again.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Totally perfect stay! The cabin was exactly as described and perfect for our anniversary get-away. A quiet away from it all getaway. This part of Mountain Island Lake is private & serene. We will absolutely be back!

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).
