About Mary Hamlett
We love the lake, We like to fish, and to entertain and cook. We both have worked in the hospitality field for many years. We enjoy meeting people from other places. We alway's want to see everyone have a memorable experience at the lake cottage.
Mary Hamlett purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Mary Hamlett chose Rocky Mount
We chose this location because it is in a peaceful cove, the sun sets are looking out of the cove, it is absolutly beautiful also we wanted to be on the water and this lake cottage is at the waters edge. This cove is where the skiers seek to ski, nice calm water.
What makes this Cottage unique
Easy access, lake views from all bedrooms, and of course the spa on the lower deck under the stars. Only 5 steps to the water. Come and enjoy!!

We loved the place and the hosts. Mary and Mike are wonderful and helpful people. There is a quiet cove where you can keep your boat and swim from the dock. The only thing if you are bringing boat with you make sure you will put the boat on the water before you will go to the cottage. Otherwise everything was great.
The hot tub is awesome addition , that was great seating there late evening and watching beautiful sky with amazing amount of stars. We had lot of fun and hopefully we will be back soon. Thank you for letting us stay in you cottage .
Everyone enjoyed our stay!
Our party of 8 with 3 kids all had a great time here. Dealing with Mary and Mike before our stay couldn't have been any easier. They were both very helpful with any questions we had and were very friendly. Mike was there to greet us as we arrived, gave a quick tour of the house, and helped us get to the boat ramp for loading. The road to the boat ramp is steep and is gravel, I suggest a 4 wheel drive vehicle or use the marina. You really can't get any closer to the water than the property is described. We caught plenty of fish off the back deck and the kids enjoyed feeding the ducks. The hot tub was a big hit as the first couple of days were cooler temperatures. The house has what is needed on the inside but nothing more. Everyone had comfortable beds, ac's kept the house cool, all appliances worked, and what neighbors we did see were very nice. We were even allowed to use the diving board on the dock next to us which kids and adults enjoyed. The cove was really nice and perfect for us to teach our children how to ski. Mike was so helpful with everything during our stay. He even loaded a pedal boat from his dock for our children to use at ours. This place was perfect for our needs on a lake vacation. Most of our stay was centered on being in the water or hanging on the dock. I highly recommend this house to anyone with a family who just wants to enjoy their time together. We hope to return back here for a future vacation and make some more memories.
Perfect summer getaway!!! ❤️❤️❤️
We can’t say enough about our time spent at this property!!! We loved it so much, the only time we left was to make a run to the grocery store. We were able to rent a boat & have it delivered straight to our personal dock. Which by the way is all of a few feet from your back door. There is also a personal swimming dock that was utilized for reading, down time, tying up floaties & making memories. We also chose to rent a paddle board locally & bring this with us. The cove this property sets in was absolutely perfect for it. Not to mention the fact that we were able to bring our Newfoundland Dog who LOVES the water & was in her one personal heaven. Renting a jet ski was easy as can be too, as the marina is all of two minutes away from the property. We will definitely return & can’t thank Mike & Mary enough for the week we had. ❤️❤️❤️
Awesome family getaway
We are a family of five, twin boys who will be starting their sophomore year of H.S., and daughter heading off to college this fall. This place was PERFECT for us. We love the water, and swam everyday - we brought a large inflatable that fit multiple people and anchored it right off the dock. The owners are two doors down, and saw us inflating it with a rechargeable device. Mike came over with a plug in version that helped us both inflate and deflate it quickly. Mike and Mary and wonderful people, and made us feel at home.
We also golf, and spent a day at a nearby course that had stunning views. Hit the outlet mall for a couple hours, mostly cooked in but also went out a couple of times and had great experiences as well. The house has a little tilt toward the lake ( as many in the area do), but that didn't bother us a bit.
The kitchen had everything we needed, the grill worked great, and we spent the evening watching The Game Show Network and playing cards before going to sleep. We didn't use the hot tub, but it was ready to go, and didn't fish, but you could if you wanted - lots of fish in the area, and a very quiet cove. Mike would be more than willing to help you get set up to fish, go boating and sightseeing, or whatever else you might wish to do. Couldn't say enough nice things, I could spend an entire summer there and never get bored. I hope we get back soon - my family loved every minute of it. I highly recommend this place, the location and quality owners alone make it a bargain for any family.
This home was perfect for us.
Great location, and attentive hosts. Everything we needed was there, and if your looking for a place that forces you to disconnect from your phone, and connect with your family, this is the place. There is no WiFi, and cell coverage was non-existent, which is what we wanted. Great places to eat close by boat if you don’t want to cook at the cabin. Mike was very helpful in taking care of some issues we had with our boat and trailer, and was close by if we had any issues with the cabin...which we didn’t. We would definitely stay again.
Todd we want to thank for your great review, we appreciate you choosing us, it is nice hear you had a good and peace full time,we hope you will think about us for your next get away.
