The space
The studio's open layout and picture windows make the space feel larger than it is. And the extra large screen room adds additional living space for you to enjoy nature as you relax. Blackout curtains and door window blinds help you to rest well.

Our cabin will be stocked with a Starter Kit of 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels, 2 garbage bags, hand soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and dish soap. We do suggest that you bring more essentials if you think you will need it. Also, all clean linens and towels will be in place when you arrive.

Kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. We know how important coffee is in the morning so there is a Keurig, a drip coffee maker, and a French press for all the coffee connoisseurs as well as sweetener, coffee, and creamers for that first morning to get you going. Tea and honey too. Help yourself to items in the fridge and pantry as well.

With a boat ramp right beside the cabin you can bring your water toys to fully enjoy the lake experience. SUP or motor on over to Lake Hickory Scuba and Marina, which is just around the point, to get some hand dipped ice cream, coffee, or to hear occasional live music in the summer months. You can also walk there easily if you choose. Let us know if you need to borrow a life jacket. We have plenty in many sizes.

The space is child friendly. The windows have cordless blinds. The lower portion of the screen room is reinforced with cable railing outside the screen as an extra barrier. There is a high chair, pack and play, dinnerware, outlet and door knob protectors available at your request. We also have a really cool child swing on the screen room you can use. And for the older kids there is a swurfer outside.

Tie your boat up to the dock, lie in the sun, or jump in for a refreshing swim. Roku TV with antennae for some local channels and streaming WiFi. No cable.

If you're lucky enough to stay over the 4th of July, the fireworks display is unbeatable from our spot on the water as you can see straight up the lake and fireworks shoot off from everywhere you can see. Of course, there is something about lake life that inspires people to shoot off fireworks for any occasion to celebrate so you may see some on Memorial Day, Labor Day, New Years, etc.

For your safety we adhere to Airbnb's 5 step enhanced cleaning process. We wash entire bedding including the quilt or duvet cover and couch throw each booking. There are also plenty of cleaning supplies available for your use during your stay.

Where you’ll be

Township of Taylorsville, North Carolina, United States

The neighborhood is relatively quiet and you're welcome to walk and explore. The lake can get quite busy during the summer months, but weekdays, mornings and evenings are usually quiet and calm. Lake Hickory Scuba and Marina is within walking distance or bring your paddle board and paddle on over. Riverbend Park has great hikes and is a 5 minute drive away, just below Oxford Dam.

Closest place to eat is Crossroads Grill which is always filled with locals and is just a few minutes up the road. Another close by favorite is Apple City BBQ. And if you want more ambiance, check out McLindon's Restaurant where you can also play a round of golf. There is a new restaurant opening this summer on the far west end of the lake if you want to go by water.

Hickory is 20-25 minutes SW and has all types of restaurants, entertainment and shopping you desire. And is home of Lenoir Rhyne University.

The town of Taylorsville is an easy 15 minute drive north and features the new Brushy Mountain Brews with live music most nights. They usually have a different food truck out front each evening at 5pm. There is also a local ice cream shop and some other neat places to check out.

The very small town of Bethlehem is 10 minutes west if you need supplies, and also is home of the recently opened Vault bar and restaurant.

The Farmer's Daughter is a local fruit and vegetable farm just a few minutes north where you can pick your own strawberries when in season.

Conover, Claremont, and Newton are 15-20 minutes south of us for more restaurants and shops to explore.

Wilkesboro is roughly 30-40 minutes north and hosts the famous Merlefest annually, as well as the Carolina in the Fall music festival each September. Both are amazing.

Boone and Blowing Rock are about an hour away.

Charlotte is an hour south.
