Settle in Adirondack chairs while unwinding on the lakefront as stress fades into the sunset. It's Tuesday, but here, it always feels like the weekend at Boathouse Cove. As the moon takes over, retreat to the calm of a Miller Nicholson-designed craftsman home. 140 windows offer lake views from almost every room, including a den with a soaring real stone fireplace and five cozy wood-accented bedrooms.

Ah, but the Lake Norman lifestyle is all about relaxing. Whether it's weekday kayaking with the kids or long sunny weekends on the water with friends, you'll feel invigorated, the kind of "good tired" you feel in your bones.

Boathouse Cove features a meticulously landscaped, gently sloping lawn that leads to 234 feet of shoreline, a private dock, and covered boat slips (pontoon available for rent), plus a new pool. The outdoor area also has a 6-person hot tub on an elevated deck with amazing lake views. Reservations might be needed for these coveted six seats! Extensive water views extend across to a natural preserve with a rare unobstructed Lake Norman wooded view.

Upon entering Boathouse Cove through the slate rocking chair front porch, you are greeted by a large living room and foyer. Once inside Boathouse Cove, you will immediately get a sense of the great entertaining space, which consists of an open-concept layout that brings together the living area, dining area, breakfast room, and kitchen.

The living area hosts couches dedicated to providing comfort -- an intimate feeling that is completed by the indoor fireplace. The stonework and woodwork in this fully custom home will have you constantly in awe, not to mention the stunning view of the lake from any seat you choose! The best two seats in the house are the window seats with amazing lake views and a perfect reading nook! The main living space is full of natural light, which promises an open and airy atmosphere that also makes for a great place to spend the day!

The kitchen is spacious and includes a glass cooktop, double ovens, and a large island complete with 6 bar stools. The kitchen is stocked with everything you will need during your stay, including a Keurig & drip coffee maker!

The dining area is set off in the back of the kitchen. It is furnished with seating for 8 and invites your group to sit down to meals for special occasions or to simply look your best and enjoy each other's company. Off the kitchen area is another seating option in the breakfast room, equipped with couches, a mini-fridge, a bar, a TV, and great views of the new pool and the lake!

As you settle into one of the five bedrooms on the premises, you will find yourself right at home. This home features 2 king beds and 5 queen beds, providing plenty of space for all guests in your party. If you snag the upper-level primary bedroom, you will be lucky enough to enjoy your own access to the upper deck and an ensuite bathroom with an oversized shower featuring two shower heads & a jetted tub. Get up in the morning, step outside to the cool morning breeze, and enjoy your coffee, taking in the serene lake sounds -- what a way to wake up!

Along with the primary bedroom on the upper level, there are three other bedrooms and two full baths hosting one king, one queen, and a bedroom with 2 queen beds.

The garage area is set apart from the main living area, providing a quiet and private place for a family. The garage hosts a game room downstairs with a bar, TV, and fridge and features fun games like a basketball shooting game and foosball. Upstairs includes a bedroom with two queen beds, a full bath & mini fridge. The garage area has plenty of space and seating for the kiddos to hang out and make their own noise.

With all the outdoor options, there is no time for boredom! Heading out to the dock, you'll discover gorgeous lake views. Conveniently located on the dock are all of the fun lake toys, which include a kayak, 2 paddle boards, and an assortment of life jackets.

This Lake Norman rental is on a quiet lake cove, providing serenity and security for your vacation. Some of us are a little more sun sensitive than others, but fret not; there is a covered area on the dock with plenty of comfortable seating and dining space. Guests seeking fun in the sun can take their pick of activities -- wander over to the large grassy region that provides a perfect place for games, or head down to the swimming dock to relax! Outside games also include a large Jenga set, corn hole, and hook and ring toss for all the competitive folks in your group! If you head out around sunset, you will have the opportunity to experience sunsets you will remember for a lifetime!

Couldn't have had picked a better home and location for our sibling reunion! Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen was well equipped and large enough to socialize and cook large meals in. Common areas were large, bright, and cozy. We chose to come in autumn, which was absolutely stunning for fall colors and smores by the fire, but a little too chilly to enjoy the boat and lake. Looking forward to coming again when it's warmer!

Beautiful house with all the amenities! Perfect location on the lake! Lots to do from swimming in beautiful pool, enjoying a big comfortable hot tub, sitting around a fire pit, fishing and swimming off the dock, playing corn hole and just relaxing while enjoying the view. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Can't say enough great things about Boat House Cove and!
