About Larry Olsen

I was raised on a farm in northern Utah, now semi retired I retained the honest and personal belief that I treat anyone the way I'd expect to be treated.

Larry Olsen purchased this house in 2006

Why Larry Olsen chose New London

No agency with impersonal service. You will meet me at check in, aside from the fact that this property offers a very quiet and serene surrounding.

What makes this house unique

Personal service.

A Secluded Getaway

  • 3 of 5

After reading all the reviews we rented this home with high expectations. We were unfamiliar with this area and did not realize how far we had to travel for restaurants etc. we also didn't realize a lot of places around this home are only open on the weekends, we were unaware of the steep steps inside and the sharp incline of the driveway. The home is not for someone who has had bilateral knee replacements. (our problem not the owners) That being said if you are looking for a secluded getaway this is the place for you. There is a general store and a Dollar General a few miles away and a café open for breakfast and lunch. The home is a pictured on this site. The home is spacious and does sleep eight with four of the eight on two futons, one downstairs and one upstairs. There is a full bath and laundry downstairs and another full bath upstairs. We and our friends family who came by also didn't give a five star rating. The furniture appeared to be mismatched castoffs (chipped paint and missing cushions) and the linens were an assorted lot although there was adequate quantity. The towels and wash cloths were rather worn and some had holes in them and were frayed. Two of the bedrooms had no place to hang your clothes and the third one had some hooks on the wall. The bedroom with the hooks on the wall had no closet. The upstairs bathroom had only two hooks on which to hang your towels. The kitchen is pretty well equipped sans dishwasher. There are a canoe and kayak to use and some other assorted water and fishing items. Please do not take this as a negative review but rather an objective one. The owner is a very pleasant and accommodating person to work with and the home is clean and orderly. For a five star rating our expectations are for a little more attention paid to guest comfort details. The lake is large and pretty. There are local marina's which will rent boats however only open on the weekends and get your reservation in early! The dock can accommodate a large pontoon boat. The Heron that visited us and the hummingbirds were lovely to watch.

Quiet, peaceful little cove!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage perfect for relaxing by the lake. The little cove was quiet and provided a great place to swim and canoe. The house was very clean and had a well-stocked kitchen. I hope we have the opportunity to visit again!

Good Lakefront House on Badin

  • 5 of 5

Great house layout with the big, open kitchen and living room on the lower level along with the lakefront patio. Plenty of room in the 2 bedrooms and bonus room upstairs. Our dog enjoyed swimming off the bank/dock (no dogs allowed upstairs inside the house) and I caught a few fish too. We'd return.

The lakefront home is located in the heart of Badin Lake. Surrounded

by over 5,000 acres of Uwharrie Nat'l Forest. Badin is one of the

deepest lakes in NC and is a fisherman's paradise. There are trophy

Bass, Stripers and Catfish at the end of the dock. Located 60 miles

east of Charlotte. There are 2 marinas on the lake offering dining,

supplies and rentals of water crafts. Badin Lake is in the heart of

the Pottery Trail of NC. There is local golf, fishing, water sports,

horseback riding and hiking. The greatest

asset is the quiet solitude watching the sunset from the porch.
