Over -all a Great Cabin, and lake exsperiance
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.
Beautiful property, great location, great dock, friendly and responsive owner.
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.
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.
Truly a perfect getaway!!!
This cabin is fantastic. Super convenient location, with quick access to shopping, etc, yet you feel so secluded. The cabin itself has everything you need and more. There's a floating dock perfect for lounging, sunning, fishing, and great access for cayaking. Most definitely a place I'd recommend and we will be back for sure!!
We enjoyed our time at the home .The house was very clean! It had nice updated bathrooms. The home owner was very nice to work with. He made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. No issues with the wifi. We enjoyed the kayaks,swimming and fishing off the dock. Our kids caught some big catfish!! The kitchen was well equipped. We would stay again.
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).
