Waterfront Getaway Cottage on Beautiful Badin Lake! Priced to Please

Summer is approaching fast at the Kepley Cottage. Soon the water temperatures will be just right for a dip in the lake to cool yourself from summer sun rays. Now is the time to get going on planning your summer vacation or weekend getaway at our favorite place in the world. Located 50 minutes or less from Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston Salem, our cozy cottage is perfect for family vacations, a couples weekend away, or a reunion with old friends.

Two queen beds and one full bathroom make our cottage the perfect size for small groups. One renovated bathroom and full sized, fully equipped eat in kitchen overlooking the lake. All kitchen appliances, two flat screen TV's with DISH network service. Spacious front deck with outdoor furniture, charcoal grill, and large outdoor dining table leading down to a hot tub. The newly re-built back deck leads down to an over sized dock where we spend all of our time either swimming, setting sail, fishing or taking in the beautiful evening views of Badin Lake. You can view the night sky as never before while relaxing in our hot tub or telling stories around our newly finished fire pit.

Amenities include: Fully equipped kitchen, four top dining table, hot tub, 2 flat screen TV's, DISH network, 2 outdoor dining tables, dock, charcoal grill, fire pit, portable radio with auxiliary hookup, large lot, linens, towels and coolers provided.

Badin Lake offers something for everyone. For those looking for adventure, rent a pontoon boat at nearby Fish Tales Marina, or go hiking through the Uwharrie National Forest. Take a 30 minute drive to the North Carolina Zoo, or Sea grove to experience famous North Carolina pottery. Located less than 30 minutes from Tot Hill Farm, one of North Carolina's finest golf courses, and less than an hour from Grandover and Pinehurst, our cottage is the perfect location for a golfer's getaway. We also welcome those of you visiting our great state for the High Point Furniture Market. For those of you wanting to relax, just kick back on our dock, cue the tunes and take in the sunshine.

Unlike most vacation rentals, we supply paper towels, toilet paper, body wash, towels, bed linens, coffee filters, and even firewood for your convenience.

About Matthew Kepley

Nikki and I met in high school but never dated until college. I played baseball at Catawba College and Nikki started her career as a cosmetologist in Raleigh, NC. After tying the knot in October of 2011 we began saving for our dream home. We figured it would be years before we were able to go shopping for a place on Badin Lake. However, by some miracle, we came across this little cottage and fell in love.

Matthew Kepley purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Matthew Kepley chose North Carolina Piedmont

We are weekend warriors. After working hard all week we pack up the Jeep and take off to anywhere fun and exciting. We had been visiting friends at Badin Lake for 5 years until we decided it was time to stop crashing on couches and find our own place. Out of all the places we have been, this is our favorite by far.

Relaxing atmosphere with great outdoor amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The kitchen is very well stocked and the decorations are very on trend. The instructions on where to find items was clear. I also took advantage of the library and very much enjoyed my selection of The Lovely Bones.

I agree with the previous review that the bathroom window needs a cover as it is directly across from the neighbors window and in full view of both the deck and the driveway.

Not a complaint, just a note. There is a larger than normal step between the kitchen and living room. It was difficult to navigate for my toddler and might be difficult for someone with mobility issues.

Another suggestion is to label the ceiling fan remotes, add them to the instruction list (we just happened upon them) and make sure there are batteries in all of them. We didn't really need the fan in November, but would have appreciated using the light by itself.

All in all, we got just what we were looking for a relaxing holiday weekend to recharge!

Awesome and quaint

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an awesome weekend getaway for some kayaking. Walking into a home fully furnished and stocked was perfect. We had the best time and the owners were so easy to work with. Can't wait to find a weekend this summer to come back!

Lovely Small Cottage - Beautiful outdoor area

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here - small cottage that is really one bedroom with a bed in the living area, but it is completely charming for 2-4 people. Amazing outdoor area and beautiful water access. We cooked outside at the grill and everything was completely stocked. I would love to have some blinds/curtains in the bathroom for a little more comfort in privacy, but was a great stay.

Wonderful weekend on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Kepley Cottage. The house is clean, well maintained , and very nicely decorated. It has a great outdoor space for grilling out, relaxing by the water, swimming, and fishing. Matt responds quickly to messsges and is very good to work with. We would highly recommend this house to other renters. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
