Positively Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
The Cozy Cottage was exactly what we had hoped for and so much more. It was a perfect, relaxing getaway for our family. Being right on the lake with a nice long dock was convenient/wonderful. Enjoyed sitting outside and taking in the view/weather/stars at night. The fishing was good (catfish & bluegills) and the fire pit made for a nice time outside and NOT in front of the TV for once. We brought our Black Lab with us (with owner's permission) and she stayed in the water as much if not more than we did. She missed the lake as much as we did when we got home. The place was very clean and had everything we needed for a worry free time. The Cottage is tucked away, but close enough to shopping and food when the teenagers got restless. There is no doubt that we will be going BACK to the Cozy Cottage.

Great Labor Day Weekend at Cozy Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
I reunited with a group of college friends this weekend at Cozy Cottage. The house was perfect for our needs - we loved the easy lake access, porch and fire pit. We had an opportunity to meet the owner, who was very hospitable!

Great Family Time

  • 4 out of 5
Our family( 3 teenagers and 2 preteens) had a great time staying at the cozy cottage! We definitely would come back. We met the owner who was very nice and was gracious enough to let us meet his family. Our two dogs LOVED being there for they did not want to leave at all. Our yellow lab had the best time swimming as did the family. We definitely want to come back.

Filthy accomodations...with a lovely view and great location

  • 1 out of 5
As my title states, the location on the lake and the view from the deck were the highlights of this stay. We stayed for four weeks. We fully expected the cottage to be dated and somewhat rustic, based on the photos and a short "check it out" visit while it was being cleaned in the winter. However, it was beyond rustic. It was downright unsanitary. Though "cleaned" only moments before we arrived, the kitchen was filthy...sink dirty, crusted food and dried spilled milk in the fridge, multiple dead bugs in the completely unorganized and inadequately stocked cupboards. The carpet, which had multiple crusty stains on it, also had an array of dead bugs and was damp and mildewy. The windows could not be opened due to the expansive spiderwebs and spiders between the window and screen in most rooms. The bathrooms were in a similar state, including moldy clothes and dirty, random items below the sink. The floors were so dirty, the corners were black and the baseboards had a thick layer of dust. The sheets in the two main bedrooms were torn and way past their prime. The smaller bedroom smelled of a drain issue, likely from the washer/dryer located in the closet or the sink next to the bed. We woke each morning to grubs/centipedes crawling the walls and floors. A large section of the screened porch was loaded with random items likely left by prior tenants. The screens were covered in spiders and spiderwebs. This was hardly a relaxing environment and certainly not appropriate for my 16 month old baby. However, we were not able to find another rental for the 4 weeks, so we cleaned a lot and made the best of it. We did contact the owner upon arrival with our concerns. He offered to have the cleaning crew come...we declined as we were quite confident in our cleaning abilities versus what they had just left for us. We also spoke with the owner in person several weeks later and were quite disappointed with his lack of concern. He compensated us an insulting $35. As I said, we made the best of it...but I do not recommend this property or any property being managed by this team. As someone who owns multiple rental properties, I know that I would be embarrassed to provide this vacation home to unsuspecting families.

Owner's Response: As this traveler stated, she visited the cottage and checked it out before she scheduled the 30-day rental. There was absolutely no appreciable change in the general condition of the cottage before her rental began. Her description of the place more accurately depicts its condition at the time of her departure.

Carpet shampooing had been planned on the day for this tenant's arrival to remove a stain, but there was insufficient time for it to dry, because this traveler and her entourage arrived three hours before the official check-in time.

The owner of the cleaning service called me and reported that these people had been extremely rude to her employees. I told her to try to appease them, so she offered to come at a convenient time to shampoo the carpet and do whatever else was needed but the offer was declined.

I refunded the $35 cleaning fee in full, but her mother insisted in an email that she expected a rental refund. I suspect that this is not their first extortion attempt.

After this houseful of people, a toddler, and a dog occupied the house for a month, my cleaning crew had to spend 10 person-hours getting the house ready for the next guest. It has been said that a negative review often tells the reader more about the person who wrote it than about the subject under consideration.

We have been renting the cottage on the VRBO program for a year, and it has been a very rewarding experience up to this point. I have been very favorably impressed with the quality of the guests, and my cleaning crew has consistently done exemplary work. Other guests have often complimented us on the cleanliness of the place.

I hope that the reader will read our other reviews for a more objective evaluation of Cozy Cottage.

Cozy Cottage on Lake Norman

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at the Cozy Cottage was excellant being one of the most refreshing and relaxing vacations our family has had. We were able to enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, tubing, jet ski's, bird watching, golfing, star gazing, camp fires and restaurants. We caught fish right off the dock as well as swimming. There is a great boat and jet ski rental close to the Cottage. There are two public Golf Courses, the Mallard Head Country Club and the City of Mooresvilles Golf Course within 4 miles of the cottage which are challenging and fun to play. There were various birds that can be observed and the night sky's are great for star gazing righ off the dock There are many different shops and restaurants within 5 miles to restock all the supplies and get great meals. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back again next year.
