A joy to come back to year after year

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second stay at Traveller's Retreat even more than the first. The property is clean and well maintained with many amenities. The location is ideal-you feel far away from it all, but it is a short drive to anything you need (including the new fresh baked pie company that opened up a few miles away...). Kevin is a delight to work with and we will be back next year.

Perfect Lake Norman vacation

  • 5 of 5

Traveller's Retreat is a fantastic house, just the right size for two of us. The house was very clean, and the kitchen well-equipped for basic cooking. The dock was the perfect place for morning coffee, reading, sunning and evening chats. We ate all our meals on the screened porch watching the water and boats go by. We will definitely return and recommend this place to anyone who wants to unwind and decompress. Special thanks to Kevin for making everything comfortable -- and even returning a couple of items we left behind.

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.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this great place on Lake Norman with our two best dog buddies for a much needed vacation. It exceeded our expectations! Kevin was great to work with and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful place. The neighborhood was great to walk the dogs in and the house and dock were perfect! We hardly left, because we had everything there we needed and more. Loved the swings and sitting on the dock relaxing. We truly had a great vacation!

Everything we wanted and needed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting this cottage for our 30th wedding anniversary. Kevin was extremely easy to work with, from allowing us to preview the property to communication to helping us navigate around Mooresville. We were able to bring our dog who thoroughly enjoyed the water and ducks. The Inside was very clean and well maintained. Everything we could possibly need was there including some of the softest towels I've ever used! (meant to check out what kind they were but forgot). Lots of privacy on this lot and tremendous views. Loved hearing the rain on the tin roof, heard mainly in the living area, screened porch and office. Boat ramp was literally right around the corner. I hope we can get back one day. Great vacation and owner!

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!
