Sit back, relax and enjoy this cozy waterfront cottage surrounded by windows and gorgeous views of Lake Wylie. It's the perfect location for a family vacation or a get away. 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and plenty of space for relaxing, this cottage has it all.
The great room, dining room, kitchen and 2 of the three bedrooms provide you will the perfect lake view.
The quaint cottage sits lakefront on the channel at the beginning of a quiet cove. Tall, mature trees provide shade and privacy. The long driveway allows ample parking in front and along the wooded area (we prefer you do not park on the road).
Good times await from the dock with the swimming ladder and floats. Rent a boat and explore the shoreline, or bring fishing poles for some old-fashioned fun and relaxation. Or just kickback and enjoy the wildlife and serenity from one of the two outdoor areas, complete with comfortable chairs, deck and boat dock. Wifi and internet provided
The luxury home features 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms along with a sleeper sofa so that it can easily accommodate 10-12 guests
The Main Level has three bedrooms, and 3 baths:
(1) Master Bedroom with King bed and great lake-view.
(2) Bedroom 2 has a Queen bed and a great lake view
(3) Bedroom 3 has two sets of bunk beds.
Each bedroom has a nightstand with lamp(s), dresser and a place to hang clothes. Bath, beach, and kitchen towels are provided. One laundry room.
LOCATION While here you will feel like you're way out in the country, but the reality is you're just 11 minutes to shopping and restaurants, 27 minutes to the airport, and just 34 minutes from Uptown Charlotte. You'll find this location perfect for visiting Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden (4 mins), Carowinds (38 mins), US National Whitewater Center (34 mins), or our charming small town of Belmont (11 mins). Everything in the Greater Charlotte Region is easily accessible, but you may never wish to leave our little slice of paradise.
This home is nestled in a quiet, close-knit community. Out of respect to our neighbors, we do not allow parties or other partying related activities. For safety and courtesy, no parking is allowed on the street.
Our stay was cut short unfortunately (only stayed 1 night out of 3) because of hurricane Florence and we were also unable to enjoy the lake because of the weather, but the house was so comfortable and cozy that we didn’t really mind. Would definitely book this house again!

We LOVED this house!
I am not really sure where to start with this review so I will break it down by features...
Beautifully decorated and so well stocked. I read a review previously that said it was minimally stocked, NOT TRUE, it has everything you need and more! This is our 7th VRBO rental and the best stocked to date. The beach towels and q-tips were just a few of the perks but it had everything you would need in the kitchen to cook family dinners (which we did every night), so many glasses if you were to entertain (which we did), games, blankets, movies, first aid, you name it, they had it!
The interior design of the house was impeccably done. Especially the master and back living room with all the windows where we watched many evening thunder storms. Even though there are windows everywhere, you feel secluded with all of the aged trees located on the property.
We found the lake to be very muddy but living briefly on Lake Norman we were use to it and still spend each day on the dock swimming, floating, kayaking, and paddle boarding. The paddle boards were AWESOME! The dock could use a little TLC but it was still so enjoyable. We watched the sunset down on the dock every night. The house was equipped with a beautiful fire pit which we didn't use because it was 95 degrees when we were there but was a great added feature.
Belmont is the sweetest town. We visited Nellie's Southern Kitchen (OMG!!!! DELICIOUS!!). They even have a dog friendly roof top bar. South Main Cycle station was a great little bar and the cotton candy factory was something fun for the kids. There is also a great park for kids to play. We stopped and talked to some of the locals who said ALL of the restaurants were delicious, we just wish we had more time to visit them all.
We spend a day hopping around some of the breweries that Charlotte had to offer and it was only about a 30 minute drive. Grocery stores and Walmart were only about 15 minutes from the house as well.
I am not sure we will ever have a reason to visit this area again but if we do THIS will be the house we choose to stay in, 100%
Also, a funny and helpful piece of information for future visitors, we spent about 30 minutes searching the house for a wine opener! We couldn't believe a house so stocked with literally everything else didn't have a wine opener but we finally found it! It is located in on the counter where the wine fridge is, inside the box that looks like a book! :-)

A well stocked house - a luxury rental
We have rented many different houses over the years and this one is the best stocked house out of all of our rentals. The paddle boards and kayaks were a wonderful addition to the house. We used them every day. We also loved being able to have our 2 dogs with us. They had a blast as well. The lot lends itself to a lot of privacy with plenty of room to hang out on the attached decks. We will definitely return for another visit.

Comfortable, beautiful décor and well equipped home away from home
I was searching for a 3-bedroom house in Charlotte located near Carowinds and Lake Wylie as well as the home of one of my sons to spend an extended Memorial Day visit. The Cottage was perfect for our family’s needs. The grandchildren loved the bunk beds and the other two bedrooms were comfortable and quiet and had their own TV’s. The large family room provided ample room for everyone to relax and there was plenty of space for eating and playing games. The rooms were decorated with a modern cheerful décor and the kitchen was well equipped. The deck and dock were extra nice and the use of the large grill, two kayaks and paddle board were a pleasant surprise. The property manager was just a call away and eager to help or answer any questions. We will certainly consider staying at The Cottage again.

Great Family Vacation!
We were a group of 6 adults and 1 infant and stayed in the home for a long weekend. The home is beautiful inside and out. All of the little details have been thought of and there is so much more provided compared to most vacation rentals. The home is a little further away from Charlotte, but its in a beautiful quiet neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this one.

Cottage is beautiful & decorated with great accents. Much attention to detail with every imaginable comfort of home. Beautiful view with lots of windows & great decking. Close in to historic Belmont for local restaurants & bars.
Adam was easy to work with & readily accessible with prompt response time.
We plan to be back soon !

This cottage defines H A V E N!
Tucked away from it all, but close to quaint Belmont and not too distant Charlotte. The owners must be architects and interior designers- the flow of the cottage is amazing and the decor- coastal modern. Everything is equipped- even more than a well-appointed home. For those who admire coordination, all the decor & accents match- in a most classy, tasteful way. It was presented in mint condition cleanliness as well! The lake is great itself- we caught a full cooler of crappie on a half day charter. Be sure to eat at the local area restaurants! All d’lish. If you need some real r&r, this is a must stay place in greater Charlotte!

Peaceful, Lakefront Get-A-Way
We had the good fortune to be one of the first to stay at this updated, Lakefront Bungalow. We came to visit family and a new baby.
We stayed for 12 days. The bungalow is contemporary and comfortable. Lots of natural light from the windows overlooking the Lake. Ample selection of seating arrangements and thoughtfully coordinated accessories. Kitchen was stocked better than any other place we have stayed and the knives were sharp and the cookware was very good quality. We did cook in most days and the grill was a welcome addition when we didn't feel like a big prep. The master bedroom space was large and overlooked the water, the other two bedrooms were ample and there is room for 12 to sleep. Brand new washer and dryer were appreciated as well. All our questions were promptly answered and I would highly recommend a stay--during any season---at this nice house.
