About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 12 Sleeps

--Location--Location--Location--This quaint lakefront cottage with

decorator touches offers the best in casual lakefront living and is

situated with its own private dock and pier on Lake Norman's 520 miles

of shoreline. This 4 Bedroom 3 Bath home that sleeps 10-12

comfortably is located only minutes from I-77 Exit 36 on a quiet

culdesac on well known Skipper's Cove. It's the best of all worlds.

You have the convenience of fine restaurants, entertainment, and the

newest shopping centers at your fingertips while staying in this cozy

home on a beautiful picturesque cove large enough for skiing and all

sorts of lake activities and you're only a short hop to the main

channel. But should you not want to see a single congested area you

can do all your shopping in the lovely little town of Troutman.

You'll be delighted and surprised at how roomy and spacious this 2

level 2200 sq ft home really is. That's the first response we get

from our many repeat guest we've hosted over the last 10 years. They

also echo in just how comfortable and at home they feel. So much so

that most just don't want to leave. With 10 years experience hosting

vacationing families, we've listened and incorporated in the things

they tell us make their week the most pleasant and they always come back.

As you open the door to this clean and freshly updated home, light

pours in through the kitchen window with a view like no other of the

lake no matter what time of year it is. You notice as you pass

through the fully equipped kitchen that any cook would admire that the

entire kitchen and living areas are airy and open up to each other so

that everyone can be together and be a part of all the fun activities

going on at any point. The family room has lots of plush comfy

seating with a nice television over a fireplace with gas logs should

someone come in cooler months. This main level also boast 2 oversize

bedroom suites large enough for adjoining sitting areas and two full

baths for guests convenience.

Next you find one of the most favorite things that guests tell us

about time and time again. Opening up from the family room is a large

screened in porch that sits uniquely close to Waters Edge's shoreline.

Furnished with lots of outdoor furniture, you can sit on the porch

free of bugs or pests day or night rocking in the rocking chairs,

relaxing, enjoying a meal or drink while watching the children play or

the squirrels and chipmunks scamper up trees, or just listening to the

birds chirp, the wind rustling through the leaves or best of all the

sounds of the lake--waves lapping up against the shoreline.

PRICELESS!! Some say most of the week is enjoyed there.

As you go down the stairs in the family room to the second level of

the house you find another whole living quarters with direct access

outdoors. There is a living area with a 46" telvision for the games,

a second kitchen area, a game room with foosball and ping pong and

board games. In addition are two more bedrooms and a third full bath.

Multiple family groups love the layout so that each family can have

their own private quarters or the adults can have their own level and

the kids their own.

The living and game room open up onto yet another large lake level

patio with great views of the water. If you venture a few steps off

the patio you find a big double size hammock right by the shore just

waiting for someone to jump into to swing with the kids, read a good

book or take a snooze. When you wake up you can either step a few

steps literally on pavers down to a shoreside sitting area that's

enclosed for the safety of the little ones to enjoy all the family

activities in the shade or go on across the pier to the float dock and

sunning area for some of the best tanning to be found.

The pier and float dock is a great place for swimming in good year

round deep water and a convenient place to tie off your boats and jet

skis. Two ladders are provided on the dock for easy access out of the

water when swimming. But for the little ones there are wide steps

that are built directly down into the water from the pier near the

shallow end of the shoreline right in front of the shoreline sitting

area. They can just walk down onto the lake bed when they are still

getting used to the water. For those that like to play basketball you

can try your hand at water basketball out near the dock. See how many

baskets you can get.

Being situated on one of the best calmest ski coves on the lake, this

2 level home provides all the essentials for the best family vacation

ever. Supplies, gas and even boat rentals can be obtained less than

1/2 mile away at Morning Star Storage & Rentals. In fact the 2nd most

quoted phrase from guest is "We'd just like to call it home" and they

really mean it but it's not for sale. Too many people still need to

experience what a difference that a week by the Waters Edge can make.

So hurry and get ready to make memories with family and friends that

last a lifetime. Grab your flipflops & bathing suits and jump on

board for the best vacation ever. Call soon for best availability.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great wk on the lake at Waters Edge II. And we so much appreciate that you called us after the cleaning service notified you of the leaking and soured water under the sink left by the previous guest. We noticed it too upon arrival but couldn't believe how quickly you and your repair service got in touch with us, attended to the problem that surely could have turned worse because of the location. We were amazed at how quickly you got someone out and we got on with our wk. We had a wonderful family time and would not only reccommend to others but we hope to return ourselves next yr. You have been great people to work with.

nice but could be better

Great location on lake. The property is fair. Outdoor spaces are pleasant. Small, but roomy. Bedrooms good. Needs a few new mattresses. The house is very dated. Needs work. Painting, boards replaced on dock (which is small). The foosball table and the electronic dart board were broken before we arrived. The ping pong table was homemade -- too small. It was not real clean when we arrived, needed about 2 hours to get it where it should be. The upper screened porch was enjoyable. Downstairs was musty smelling -- never got rid of the smell in spite of air fresheners. Trash cans were full on arrival. Caused some problems. Not to say we had a bad trip. It was enjoyable and for the price I guess the house was adequate. But it was oversold on the website, made some promises that weren't quit accurate. The place could be very nice with some work. But it needs the work. It is not a place we will go back to unless improvements are made, but I cannot say it was bad either. IT was just fair to middlin'.

Owner's Response: Surprised at this response to say the least especially since we were not contacted by the guest the entire wk with any complaint. The pics on the property says it all along with a full calendar of repeat guest. What you see is what you get. Two brand new high end Serta pillow top mattress sets, new 42" flat screen over the fireplace and new family room furnishings and linens. Trash service is 1x a wk and we don't control large amts left by guest in cans upon departure. Roomy for 2200 sq ft as indicated with sitting areas in 2 of the bedrooms. If we are notified of plumbing issues that cause sour musky smells or any other issues immediate attention is given. If fact the next guest immediately upon arrival noticing the problem called and was amazed at how super quick the plumbing service arrived, cared for the problem and brought back freshness as well as fixing the leak and standing soured water that could have caused much more serious problems left unattended. We so much appreciate guest that care for our property such as we would. This house is well cared for and attended to immediately if we are given the notice of a problem. Fourteen yrs of renting solidly, repeat guest and never a negative inquiry says it all. Sometimes all that is needed is little battery for the dart board, but we even attend to that if we are given the opportunity. This is just as represented---a lovely quaint cottage that many families have enjoyed immensely for years. It is not a large 5,000 square ft comtemporary new home that sleeps 20, but don't fret. We have one of those too if you need that, but as we've been told many times, it is the cutest, freshest, best priced 4 BR house on a great area of the lake with nice outdoor amenities and nice dock. It feels just like home, but with the best access to the biggest pond ever in your own back yard---Lake Norman. Give us a call. We'd love to share. You will enjoy the best wk ever.
