Wonderful home exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures, which are nice, don't do "Traveler's Retreat" justice. Lovely, clean, spacious home with perfect yard, dock, and water access for the family (two and four legged). Nicely furnished, and adequately outfitted kitchen. Thought 1 bathroom would be a problem-but not an issue. Beautiful, peaceful views and great privacy. Will definitely return.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful and by far the most relaxing vacation my family has ever taken. When we first arrived, my husband stated it was "perfect". For our needs, this rental had everything that mattered to us which made our stay more relaxing. The features that most attracted us were the pet policy, fenced yard, screened porch, and the wonderful dock. We brought our boat, but the dock was so nice that we didn't need to take it out much. We fished from the dock and caught several huge catfish. The shady lot was great and the brick pavers were a beautiful detail. I loved this place, we will definitely come back again!

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were amazed when we arrived that the pictures were accurate. In fact, the setting, as well as the house where more than we expected.The kitchen was so well equipped and the covered dock and sunsets so inviting that we didn't bother to eat dinner out. The bed was very comfortable.Great closet and dresser space.A fabulous shower! We didn't have to leave the property to launch our kayaks, which was extremely convenient. We split our time between kayaking,lounging on the screened-in porch and visiting several car/history museums that were just minutes away.This is the place to go if you want to find solitude and beauty and still have the option to visit some exciting places.Lake Norman is FABULOUS! I most highly recommend Traveller's Retreat!
