Outdoor lovers paradise! Perfectly situated home is located on a point and takes advantage of sunrise views while being protected by afternoon heat. Relax under the romantic Jasmine covered arbor tucked away at a corner of the 365' shoreline or eat pizza baked in the outdoor brick oven or steak on the grill.

Comfy House on a Nice Quiet Cove with good access to the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-family group really enjoyed our stay at Zen Gardens. The best part of the house is the feeling that you are absolutely right on the lake. The house is in a small cove, but the cove doesn't have a cramped feeling, and you look out directly on water with lots of lake frontage. We appreciated that beach towels were provided -- they are bulky to bring from overseas! The owners provided a few snacks on our arrival, which was a nice welcoming touch. There were a couple of maintenance issues during our stay, but we notified the owners and they were very responsive. The only warning I would give potential renters, is that to access the house you drive down a gravel drive with two hair pin turns. It was not a problem for us, but just nice to know in advance. We would highly recommend this lake house.

The house was not very clean when we arrived. There were camel crickets in the downstairs bathroom, dead worms in the living room floor, cob webs all over house (inside and out), leftover beer in the fridge from the previous tenants, the floors in the kitchen were covered in dog hair, the dishes were put up but dusty so we had to clean everything before we used it. As soon as we got there I smelled a gas leak so the local gas company had to be called out and sure enough, there was a leak and we were told not to use the back right burner because a part needed to be ordered. The second night while we were out on the deck, we were greeted by a copperhead snake so the next day, wildlife had to be called to the house. Make sure you get the right address to the house because I was originally advised the address was 4880 Howard Lane therefore I had planned all of our events around that address and we had intended on taking Uber to dinner one night to Chilfire Grill which would have only been 5 minutes from the original address I was told. Chillfire Grill ended up being actually 30 minutes from the house and unfortunately I had already put on the invitations that this was where dinner would be and we had others coming from out of town to meet there so the Uber costed me an additional $200 to transport 10 people in two Uber's back and forth to dinner. We couldn't get in the hot tub because the fear of snakes and not to mention the Japaneese Hornets flying around everywhere. There are two bedrooms that have king beds however the master bedroom is not one of them which was really strange. Why wouldn't you put a king size bed in the master bedroom? Communication with the HomeAway rep, Catharina was good. There are things you just cannot control but she handled them well.

The perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable week! This house is set up for total relaxation. Enjoyed the early morning sun rises on the deck and the evening marsh mellow roasts in the out door fire place. House easily accommodated an extended family of 7 adults and three kids. Floating dock and kayak made for great swimming and fishing. Pool table, games and the many TVs made for fun relaxing evenings. Large kitchen with huge glass table was great for meals and gatherings. Welcome basket and watermelon in the fridge upon arrival was a nice touch. The kids enjoyed feeding the coy fish. The outdoor grill was clean and ready and the indoor stove was well equipped with all the pans, utensils and bowls needed. Only recommendations would be to fix the lights over the stove and add more window coverage to the upstairs Master bed room, the sun made it very warm. Other than that, we had a great week here and would have no qualms about renting it again. Thanks!!

Lake Norman Zen Gardens Point

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a memorable family vacation at this property. There were 15 of us and we had plenty of room. The listing description was accurate and the additional amenities including toiletries, beach/bath towels, welcome snacks/wine and dessert were all very appreciated. We did have a few issues with cleanliness and the kids missed having Koi in the pond until the last day but the owner, Catherina, was very responsive. We only went to lunch twice so I can just comment that Eddies was ok for lunch. Our waitress was great but the food was average. We did visit Mooresville where there are great antique shops. The property is very convenient to grocery and drug stores. Outlet shopping is just 20 min away for overcast days. The lake was fabulous and could easily paddle board in the cove and felt very safe with small children swimming. I would suggest renting a boat and getting out to explore the beautiful properties on the lake. The mosquito control at Lake Norman is also incredible. We read that they use a chemical free oil to spray the banks and it definitely works! We hope to come back again soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. We always encourage our guests to please make us aware of any issues during your stay so that they can be corrected as soon as possible. Our pond pump stopped working most likely due to the electrical storm and unfortunately the koi did not make it. However, we are happy to say, we ordered new koi and the pump and pond are back up and running and the koi are enjoying their new home.

Excellent Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Although my friends and I were at this lovely lake front home for 3 day we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The house was in a perfect location, not too far away from stores but far away enough to the point where things were quiet. The backyard and gardening around it were splendid. And there's ample room and beds inside where everyone had a bed. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!

Great large waterfront home for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This house can accommodate extended families, it is equipped with everything you need and then some. The owner was so sweet to leave a bottle of wine and a cake for us. She was very accommodating and easy to reach. She responds very quickly to your inquiries. We were able to keep 2 pontoon boats on the dock at one point, it is quite long. They have a kayak which was enjoyed by many of our family. If you need a large home on the lake this is a great find!!
