Our home is on a 4-acre lot on High Rock Lake. The guest space is a fully furnished guesthouse above a detached storage area (15 steps). The bedroom has a king-size bed and TV, the den has a full sofa, recliner, and TV with HD antenna​ and Netflix - NO CABLE. There is a full kitchen, bath, washer/dryer​ and​ walk-in closet. There is a small deck with a ​table and chairs overlooking the lake. Guests have access to the pier, 2 kayaks, swing, firepit, grill and gardens. ​We DO have WiFi.​​

The space
High Rock Lake was created in 1929 and is the second largest lake in NC. The lake serves as a boundary between Davidson and Rowan counties and we are located on the Rowan County side of the lake.

Guests have access to our private pier, kayaks and life jackets. Swim at your own risk and NEVER SWIM ALONE. We DO NOT have a boat ramp and are UNABLE to accommodate guests’ boats or trailers on our property. There is a public boat ramp at Tamarac Marina (fee) and at the Wildlife Access, both ½ mile away. Tamarac Marina has pontoon boat and tube rentals. Hill’s Minnow Farm, 2 miles away, is a sporting goods and convenience store that specializes in Crappie Fishing Supplies.
NC Fishing Licenses and gasoline may be purchased at Tamarac Marina or Hill’s Minnow Farm.

We both enjoy gardening and have turned our traditional lawn into paths that meander through many different gardens – veggie, fruit, shade, pollinator, bog, water, etc. We have added plants that attract many different butterflies, bees and other pollinators. We feed the birds year-round and provide houses for many species. The lake also draws many migratory birds through our area. We have a perfect place to relax and enjoy nature.
