About the area

Our cottage is in the community of Bethlehem in the middle of Lake Hickory. We're an hour from Boone, Blowing Rock, Charlotte, Lake Norman, Lake James, Black Mountain, Linville Falls, and an hour and 1/2 from Asheville. Fun, historic downtown Hickory is a short 10 minute drive and you can be at the mall and Hickory furniture markets in about 15 minutes. There are grocery stores and great restaurants just minutes away. You could swim to River's Edge marina or it's a short drive to rent any water vehicles. 2 public docking accesses are close by.

“Charming Lake Getaway”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2016

My wife & I stayed for 3 days in April. We had a wonderful time. I can't say enough good things about this property & the owners. The cabin is beautifully decorated & very comfortable. The large back deck is relaxing & has a great view of the lake. The cabin has everything you would need for cooking, etc. + it was well stocked with incidentals...condiments, coffee for the first morning, misc spices, not to mention extra toiletries like toothbrushes, q-tips, soap...(anything that is generally forgotten in the rush of packing) I would highly recommend this rental & it's owners. They were a pleasure to deal with & have thought of everything. Thanks Deborah!!! We will certainly be back soon

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed...you are always welcome back!

Great time on lake Hickory at this charming lake cottage. This was my second time visiting and I look forward to coming back again. I enjoy the large deck so much.... Having a romantic dinner of the evening at sunset or enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning. The owner Deborah has covered every need and want a person could have. Thank you for a great weekend. ~Jim

“Enchanting cottage”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

Every comfort and amenity of home! We enjoyed our short stay and utilized the kayaks, the barbecue, fishing poles ( caught a few sunnies) and a few movies. Great selections by the way. Amply supplied kitchen for the mom who likes to make home cooked meals. There's a kurig coffee pot if you want to bring your k cups. I can't think of anything that would have made the stay better. Thanks again- the Shiminski family

Owner's reply: Thank you. We love happy guests.

“Perfect Romantic Vacation”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2015

We ran away for a quick 3 nights to this beautiful little cottage on the lake. We were happy to find ourselves in a private, clean, and cozy home (yes, it feels like home) just minutes from a great town with lots of places to eat (try carolina bagel bakery). It was the perfect place to swim, paddle, nap, eat, and relax!

“Wonderful Getaway!”

Reviewed 27 May 2015

We were so excited to find this little cabin as an alternative to a hotel for our son's basketball tournament being held in the area. What a wonderful place to come home to after hanging out in the gym all day. We were able to enjoy the deck for sunset and sunrise and the dock for the afternoon, taking in the warm sun. The canoe added some fun for the kids to explore and the large selection of movies allowed for some mental relaxation for our basketball player between games. The best part was that it felt like we were walking into a family member's home for the weekend; the beds made, towels fresh, treats in the refrigerator and freezer, and even toiletries and condiments provided! You truly only need to bring yourself,your clothes and your food to begin your relaxing weekend! We had never been to Lake Hickory before, but plan to return and will visit this home again for sure! Thank you for your hospitality!

Owner's reply: We are also lucky to have great guests.

Fantastic!, August 5, 2010
By Eddie Moore (Seneca, SC)
Everything was just as the owner described and more. The pics provided in the listing do not do the property justice. The cabin is very clean, neat, updated and very well kept. Mostly enjoyed cooking on the grill and spending quite mornings and evenings on the nice deck overlooking the lake. My family had a very relaxing vacation here and I would definately stay here again. I would highly recommend to my family and friends. Thumbs up rating from the Moore family for sure!
