We had an amazing week! Our group included 5 adults and a 1 year old. The house layout was perfect and everyone had plenty of room. The open floor plan of the kitchen, dining area, and living room was wonderful. The kitchen was well stocked and had dishes, cookware, etc that we needed. The house itself was gorgeous and the recent updates/furnishings were well chosen. We spent the majority of our time on the dock from morning until night. The dock was also very spacious and enjoyable for everyone. The dock is located about halfway down into a cove so the main lake channel traffic was not a disruption, however, you could sit on the dock and view the main channel. We were able to swim off the dock and up and down our cove since it was nice and quiet. The dock was in the full sun all day so we were thankful that we brought a pop up tent for shade that we could use. The kayaks at the home were in great shape and we enjoyed using them. The men in our family also enjoyed fishing off the dock and were able to catch a few in the early morning and late evening hours. The lake water was very warm which was nice for the one year old in our family. She was able to enjoy the water and float around with us for extended periods of time without being chilly. The walk from the house to the dock was easy and there was plenty of grass area for kids. And a tree swing! There were some goose-droppings but it was not overwhelming and they were easy to avoid. We had one issue with the microwave not working, the outlets in the half bathroom not working, and we couldn't figure out the dishwasher. I called the rental company in the morning and they sent a maintenance worker out within 3 hours. They fixed everything! The problem with the dishwasher was that the one switch on the wall had to be in the ON position for the dishwasher to work. We had no idea! I left a note by the switch for the next family so they know that the switch needs to be in the ON position before operating the dishwasher. Someone from the rental company should put a permanently affix a note by the switch or put it in the "Arrival Directions email" for future guests. Also, the water pressure was "hit and miss" but we understand that this is common in many lakefront homes. Overall, the home was amazing.....we did not want to leave! Our family truly enjoyed spending the week on Lake Norman and particularly the beautiful accommodations of this lakefront home! Highly recommend!
