The Hideaway is the most unique and special vacation home on NC's finest lake! The Carolina Hideaway is truly one-of-a-kind. The setting is unmatched anywhere on the lake. It is the ultimate retreat -- as much a resort as a 'rental house' with beautiful views, lovely gardens, and so much to do.

This will give you access to great meals and live music during your stay. We also have a fantastic private chef who regularly cooks for our guests, as well as a very dependable boat rental company that will pick up and drop off speed boats, pontoons, jetskis, paddleboards, etc. You'll also be provided with our list of 'Hideaway Best Bets' upon booking - so you'll benefit from the recommendations of more than 10 years of guests at the Hideaway. Create lasting family memories at the Hideaway. It is designed with 'family time' in mind. There are so many ways to create great family memories that you'll want to come back year after year after year. It's truly a unique and amazing place that you'll want to experience over and over again. We love to visit the house as well - so keep it in meticulous condition. We are committed to offering a 'world class' experience and regularly update the property to keep it 'fresh' and up-to-date. In short, we want you to have the vacation of a lifetime at the Carolina Hideaway! More than a third our summer is typically rented returning families. We'd love you to make the Carolina Hideaway your families summer retreat! We love the Hideaway and hope you will too!! WE DO NOT HOST WEDDINGS OF ANY KIND. NO EXCEPTIONS. SORRY.More
