  • Clean, comfortable, and beautiful


    We had such a wonderful stay at Skipper's Lighthouse. The house was well equipped and clean, the beds were comfortable, and the view was gorgeous. We will absolutely return the next time we come to the area.

  • Wonderful family weekend


    We absolutely loved staying here - beautiful home, beautiful views and Gary and Monica were super attentive. We even had some veggies from their garden waiting for us when we arrived! Any questions I had prior to our arrival were answered almost immediately, and they were very accommodating! The beds were SUPER comfortable and the house was spotless. We’ll definitely be staying here again if the timing works out for our next visit to Lake Norman!!

  • WONDERFUL Place for a Lake Escape!!!


    My family and I stayed at Skippers Lighthouse for a 5 day getaway. The house is AMAZING!! It was VERY clean. I usually feel the need to clean places that we stay at because I am a bit OCD. I did not feel the need to clean anything at this house! 😊 The house is stocked with EVERYTHING you need! The property outside is just beautiful and very well cared for! The property provided kayaks, paddle boards, pool noodles, corn hole, fire pit and MORE!! There is also an option to rent their boat, which we did not do this time, but will consider on our future visits…. We will DEFINITELY be going back!! Gary and Monica were wonderful hosts…. They left us sweet welcome items (fresh flowers, candy, homegrown zucchini and squash from their garden and all the fixings for s’mores) when we arrived! So thoughtful! They were very accessible for any of our questions. It was a wonderful time away from the busy pace of life!! The sunrises on the lake are simply beautiful! We also had beautiful weather every single day! We would DEFINITELY recommend this exceptional rental home! We have already recommended it to multiple friends who inquired about the property after seeing photos of our trip! Thank you Gary, Monica and Evolve for a wonderful place for our family getaway! 😊🥰
