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 weekend on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at the Kepley Cottage. The home was well maintained and had ample space for the four of us. We loved fishing off the dock and relaxing on the back deck. Thanks for a great weekend!

Could have been so much better

  • 3 of 5

First the pros:

House very clean and maintained. Owners were very easy to work with and responsive. The outside space for this property is very nice and enjoyable.

The cons:

My biggest reason for renting a lake house is being able to walk down the dock and get in my boat. This property does not give you the ability to have your boat tied to the dock. We had to take it in and out each night. Next, there are no blinds or curtains covering the bathroom window. Lastly, this isn't really a 2 bedroom place. The second bed is placed in the main living space.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are always looking for ways to better our home! I am glad you enjoyed the cleanliness of the home and yard. We are also happy to hear that you thought working with us was easy and enjoyable. I'm sorry that we did not know in advance that you were bringing your boat. That sounds like so much fun! In the future, all you need to do is let us know in advance and we would be more than happy to move our boat forward to allow space for you to tie your boat to our dock. That is what we have done for other renters in the past and it has worked out wonderfully. As far as the bathroom window, you're correct, there are no blinds or curtains. That is a very small and semi private window and we have never personally felt the need for additional privacy. We are sorry if that was bothersome. The 2nd bed in the living room is also something that has always worked for us. Our guests sleep in the master and we always are comfortable watching tv and relaxing in bed in the living room. We want to apologize if that didn't work for you or caused you any inconvenience. Overall, when you look back at your experience at the Kepley Cottage I hope you smile with fond memories. It is a place that is dear to our hearts and we welcome you back in the future any time you'd like! Happy Summer! The Kepley's

Green and Blue Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from a military deployment to The Middle East and my Family wanted to do a Mountain Lake - Beach trip. The first leg was at this awesome Lake House where we spent the week swimming, fishing, biking, boating, hiking, and chilling. It was great to see all the green trees, blue waters, and hilly land after a year of flat and brown. This house is conveniently located within the Raleigh, Greensboro, Charlotte triangle and near the Badin Lake Rec Area and has great amenities for a Family with 2 kids. There are a few places to eat outside, a fire pit, and a dock to swim off of. The inside is decorated stylishly and feels like a home away from home. We would come back to the property in the future. Now it's off to the Beach at HHI.

A wonderful weekend on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice weekend at the Kepley's home! Such a great outdoor space for eating, sitting around the fire, and lounging by the water. Their home is very nicely decorated and the string lights outside are magical. We would definitely stay here again.
