About the property

Beautiful mountain setting on local lake property! Beautiful lake views from every bedroom!! Amazing den features stone fireplace extending two floors high with gas logs and the lower gathering area includes a massive brick wood burning fireplace. Views of the lake can be enjoyed from many relaxing spots on this property. There is a upper deck off of the sunroom, a lower deck and patio for grilling out, a firepit for evening relaxation, hammock chairs on the front porch of the house and a hammock in the gazebo overlooking the lake views. For your evening relaxation there is a hot tub on the stone patio overlooking the lake as well. My favorite area which includes both a sitting area and lounge chairs is located on the boat dock facing towards a beautiful long range view of the lake. This property combines the feel of both a mountain house and lake house combined into one! This unique property was constructed in 1974 and includes very unique features of its time! This was one of the original homes on this area of the lake! The house is approximately 4,000 square feet and is three stories. The lake house is set up as four bedrooms and includes 3 baths. The house has 2 refrigerators in the main kitchen and includes one a the boat house for convenience while spending time on the water. There is a gas grill at the house that can be used by our guests while grilling out. The open ceilings and custom wood features make this the perfect vacation home. The house is strategically placed on the property to overlook the beautiful views of the lake from both the house and boat dock. The water off the end of the dock is deep and great for swimming. This area of the lake is very private and is great for boating, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. Two kayaks and two paddle boards are available for my guests while staying at the house. With a backyard of limitless lake life this is the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy the beauties of Lake Hyco.

About Michael Lawson

I have spent almost 30 years of my life vacationing at Hyco Lake! I can remember the weekend that my parents bought our first lake home. From that point on we have created a lifetime of memories on Hyco Lake. I love being on the water wake boarding and skiing whenever possible. In 2009 I came across this property on Bear Run Lane and fell in love with the character that it offered. I knew before purchasing the home that it was going to be a huge remodel project but I took it on and now I am excited to share it with my guests! I hope that anyone that visits my home will create amazing Hyco Lake memories that will last for a lifetime!

Beautiful lake retreat

  • 5 of 5

Had a small college reunion trip and Michael set up the house beautifully for it. Lots of great space for conversations-- fire pit, hot tub, porch, living room, etc. It was cold so we didn't get to enjoy any lake activities, but it seemed like there would've been plenty to do. The spot was quiet, clean, only an hour from RDU Airport, and you could tell was recently upgraded (new tv, hot tub, fan, etc.). Michael was also very responsive and willing to give recommendations when we asked. Great spot!

Awesome property with excellent view, lake house

  • 5 of 5

Michael, the property owner is a gem of a person to deal with. Since day 1, I booked the property he is proactively engaged in communication with me. I had trouble with vrbo charged me $1800 towards deposit. Michael worked swiftly and dealt with vrbo and immediately refunded my unwarranted deposit charges.

House is excellent and well kept. Lake view, boat house, hammocks in gazebo, basement with entertainment and playful games and stuff with hot tub are excellent and we enjoyed them a lot. Outdoor bon fire arrangements are also excellent. Location is quiet and relaxing yet within 15-20 min drive you get everything. His TVs in all rooms are great plus for common and personal entertainment. His kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary for cooking.

I definitely recommend this property and would love to visit here again in summer. Thank you Michael for making our family anniversary Celebrations memorable. And yes complimentary wine was too good. Thanks again.

Private mountain-lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I give this property nothing less than 5 stars. It was the perfect setting for our extended family get away! The house was beautifully furnished and very accommodating for our large family! It was very private & we felt as if we were in the mountains. The boathouse was also beautifully furnished with lounge chairs as well as couches, chairs, etc. We felt so at home. The owner was always a text or call away. He was very accommodating to our requests! Getting in & out of the property was very easy! Would definitely recommend for a private get away. We will definitely return!!

Perfect. Just perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Huge, gorgeous semi-open floor plan with awesome privacy for large groups! We had 10 adults and a child, and pretty much everyone had their own space without any visible mess in public areas during our four days.

The bedrooms are spacious (master is HUGE), bathrooms are all modern (showers were HUGE), kitchen was well appointed, had everything we needed for grilling (gas) to baking cookies on a whim. Plenty of ice for evening cocktails on the amazing waterfront dock/boathouse, and plenty of seating down there for our sunrise coffees and breakfasts. Views from every window and deck were awe inspiring, allowing you to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets due to the orientation of the house, and the general energy of the house was simply perfect for relaxing. Much of the decor is obviously from his own travels, and helped to give the place a centered, peaceful feel. The few leftovers from the updates (some original tubs, sinks, kitchen hood exhaust) give the place a groovy touch, while remaining perfectly functional. Hottub was clean and functional, great touch, perfect location with easy access to the downstairs shower for rinsing before and after.

Even in October, the lake temperature allowed us to spend the day swimming and exploring on the (provided) kayaks and paddleboards, and the refrigerator in the boathouse kept lunch and drinks cold. Be mindful of the steps, be committed and bring everything you require, it's a long trip, but DEFINITELY worth it. Nice gazebo about halfway up/down for catching your breath AND a little nap in the hammock provided. The landscape lighting made navigation easy, even in the evening and pre-dawn hours (did I mention the amazing sunrises???).

Michael was an attentive host, just a call or text away any time we had questions. Would highly recommend any property he offers! Cannot wait to come back!
