A nice quiet place to get away

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed fishing, kayaks, swimming, home cooked meals, and family time at the lake house. I would recommend this house to families of 4-5, especially if children are a little older and can handle climbing up and down stairs.

Over -all a Great Cabin, and lake exsperiance

  • 3 of 5

My review for our stay, The cabin was a great place to stay on the lake. Enjoyed the piece and quite. Very relaxing. I did not know someone would be staying below us in the basement. Would not have booked this if we were aware of this. We did not have an issue during our stay, but we were looking for total privacy on our vacation. Enjoyed the deck over looking the lake, but you really should have more comfortable furniture out on the deck. It would have made it Awesome, chairs were tuff! Again over-all, a very nice cabin, and amenities.

Owner's Response: Actually, there is an owner's apartment in the basement, but it is never occupied when renters are staying at the cabin. And since I am the owner, I can assure that nobody was staying there - I would always introduce myself if going down there for some reason. You likely noticed that it was locked, so you did not have access, but there was nobody staying down there. Thanks for your other kind comments. Shawn

Beautiful property, great location, great dock, friendly and responsive owner.

  • 5 of 5

I took my family here for a week to enjoy some fun on the water and explore the area (Mountain Lake, Lake Wyle, Lake Norman). Cabin is beautiful and very clean with all the amenities of home. It has a big covered front porch for some shade and shelter from rain if needed and an open deck looking out over the water, dock and campfire ring. Location is close to major roads and highways for quick access to Charlotte or the other lakes and many restaurants, stores and outlets. The dock is located in an inlet no wake zone for safe swimming and fishing. We enjoyed use of the kayaks and row boat and did a lot of fishing from the dock. While I didn't use it, there is a boat launch nearby.

Sean the owner was very responsive to our questions. Overall, family was very happy with the place and had a great stay. Would recommend to family and friends.

Nice cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is just as described in the pictures. We had a good time on the kayaks and jumping off the dock. A minor issue was the tall grass around the cabin. The grass was really tall! The kids couldn't play in the yard. The tall grass attracted lots of mosquitos and other insects. Again...that was a minor issue.

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).
