'Rusty and Brenda were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed the coziness of the one room bungalow so much, we think we could retire in a similar place. Everything you need all in one big room- fabulous! I found the view out all the windows my favorite part of the stay.

'With the cleanliness of the place and the smell of the towels I felt like I was home rather than in a hotel'

'We truly enjoyed our stay... We did not want for a thing.... This cove is quiet and filled with nature...From the hummingbirds to the blue heron. I have never seen my husband unwind and relax so quickly. We hated to leave'

'All your little extra touches were greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your hospitality and kindness'

We thoroughly enjoyed the boathouse. The place is decorated just right . It is a perfect getaway for 2 people. Your hospitality is wonderful and not overwhelming. I'll be sure to pass your info along to anyone I know coming to Lake Norman'

We know that we found the Best Deal on the Lake! And the Hot Water in the shower is something I wish I could take home with me. Can't wait to tell my friends and family!

Not just for romance

  • 5 of 5

The boathouse was perfect for our Mama-Daughter retreat, and I can envision it for a quiet, comfortable writing retreat. My daughter and I enjoyed the breeze on the porch, the morning birdsongs, stars at night. Everything is exactly as described. We loved it!

Very nice!

The boat house had everything we needed. It was very relaxing and a beautiful spot on the water. We even caught a few fish off the dock. The owners were very accommodating and helped us anyway they could. We will keep this place for future stays.

The cottage is very well kept. Very nice, very clean and quiet. It was perfect for my husband and I. The weather was cold on our weekend, but the cottage has a electric fireplace and also another heater..... there were NO issues with the cottage being cold. I would return here most definitely without any hesitation. Also the location was much closer to restaurants/ bars and stores than I had imagined. Brenda sent a text asking if we needed anything.. which we did not, but that was appreciated.

Clean and relaxing

We spent 3 lovely evenings in the Boathouse. The furnishings were very cozy and comfortable, and spotless. The location was perfect for our NASCAR touring with many routes to by pass the legendary traffic. Brenda was very accommodating and we hope to visit again.
