About Michael Sullivan

I personally designed and built this house for my family and business. We have decided to let others enjoy our creation and create some amazing memories like we have over the years. We hope you enjoy every aspect of your visit. I have a desire for design and building. I still live nearby and will likely greet you personally upon check in to make sure every expectation is met or exceeded.

Michael Sullivan purchased this house in 2002

Why Michael Sullivan chose North Carolina

I have lived in the area since 1995 and always grew up around the water and water activities. I spent 3 years researching, designing and building this amazing property with an equally incredible lakefront view.

What makes this house unique

This property is a culmination of ideas including the 30 foot atrium in the center of the house which was inspired by homes in Dallas, the curvature of the wall to offer a lake view from every room in the house and maximize privacy. The waterfalls in/out that offer peaceful sounds and tie in with the lake ambiance. The stonework in/out, fireplaces, custom glass interior doors, custom designed glass front door. The lake!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just got home from staying at your house. We loved the roomy feel and all the amenities. Thank you for making our time together so meaningful. Our Aunt Sally would have loved it.

great family memories

  • 5 of 5

Twenty-two of us spent the week at this beautiful lake property. But it didn't feel like that many people in this spacious house. The two living areas were perfect. Most of the time, the kids/teenagers spent time in the upper part of house while the adults chit-chatted in the bottom space. During the day, the water was the place to be! The dock access and beach area were fabulous. And the location on the lake couldn't be more perfect. We were away from all the main traffic and close enough to wide open water to do circles on the rented pontoon boat for the raft rides. What an experience. The owner is very responsive to any concerns or questions. This place will not disappoint.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the front door, we were blown away by this amazing house. As we begin to tour the house, I immediately said to myself...the pictures do this house no justice. The house was absolutely immaculate. Everything you will ever need and more on a vacation stay was considered in the design of this house. My guest and I truly felt like a million bucks for the entirety of our stay. Michael was so easy to deal with from the beginning to the end. If I could give this house 10 stars I would have. The many Lake views from almost anywhere in the house just makes you feel like you are in paradise. Michael provides you with everything. I can go on and on... But I will save something for my next review after we stay here again and again for the years to come. We are already planning our next trip. Thanks so much Michael for your superb hospitality. My family appreciates it tremendously

An amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I have only the highest reviews for the house and the management. As a longtime event planner, we had a retreat for our firm here over a weekend. The thoughtfulness that has gone into planning this house and its amenities for large groups is evident on all fronts. Plenty of beds and sleeping options, lots of seating both indoors and out, multiple ovens and dishwashers, paddle boards, kayaks... I could go on. And the setting could not be better. A large yard, a beach, plenty of patio space, a nice dock. It was amazing. Michael was very responsive and easy to work with. An easy 5 stars.

Can't wait to come back !!!

  • 5 of 5

Could not wait to send this review... My only complaint was that my time in this wonderful house was too short. I've rented other vacation properties but never have seen one as well stocked as this one. We had 21 people and had plenty of room. Great views from all the rooms. The house was immaculate, and had a great game room, in other words something for every one.. We will rent this again, and will take it for a longer time . Thank you Michael. Look forward to staying in your lovely house again
