Enjoy a completely renovated and spacious home with one of the best docks on the lake! Stunning water view with everything you need for a romantic weekend or family gathering. brand new appliances, furniture, and fast WiFi that is great for remote working. Feel free to use the kayaks, paddle-boards, fishing-rods, and floating pad. Plenty of activities for all ages inside as well!

The space
This newly completely renovated lake home down to the studs with new roof, windows, doors, electrical, HVAC, appliances, hardwood floors throughout, new bathrooms, beautiful master bath, & shiplap ceilings. An expansive view of the lake with one of the largest docks (aren't allowed to be as large anymore) with 2 boat slips and a new jet ski lift. A fantastic place to make those priceless family memories. Also, perfect for work-from-home or remote learning with the fastest WiFi on the lake (up to 200Mbits / second).

Acorn Landing features magnificent landscaping with a fire pit and a beautiful walkway to the boathouse. The night sky is incredible and you'll love looking for shooting stars.

Access to Hyco Lake and the boathouse is an easy & mostly flat walk to the shoreline. The boathouse deck has 4 comfy chaise lounges plus a shaded area with chairs and a loveseat and features ceiling fans, Sonos Bluetooth speaker and TV for your dockside entertainment! Out on the water, you and the kids can test out the water pad, noodles, 2 kayaks, 2 paddleboards and fishing poles too--there are two ladders for easy lake access! We also can help coordinate an optional boat rental, see below for details! With over 160 miles of shoreline to explore, your stay is not complete without a boat.

The home is built to entertain! Inside there are plenty of card & board games, Legos, & art supplies, outdoors we have a washers game, outdoor Yahtzee & jarts games. There is a flat-screen TV in the main living area, as well as in each bedroom and in the lower level rec room. All TVs have Roku with a YouTube TV account, & Netflix account included (bring your own Amazon or other cable accounts). WiFi internet is included. The backyard has a fire pit to roast your hotdogs and marshmallows or you can just enjoy the fire with the gorgeous lake as a backdrop.

A wrap-around porch upstairs offers an amazing lake view. There is a shaded porch downstairs with a hanging porch bed if you want to relax or take a nap.

Guests enjoy plenty of space to have their meals. Cook something up in the kitchen or fire up the propane grill! There are three dining tables on the main floor, one in the eat-in area (6 people + 3 more at the island), a deckside picnic table (4 people), and a large table on the back deck overlooking the water (8 people). Our kitchen is stocked with basic dry goods & spices, dishes, silverware, pots & pans plus plenty of serving and bakeware to fit your needs. We also have a brand new booster seat for your little ones.

Winding down for the night---there is plenty of room to sleep comfortably! Acorn Landing has 6 beds that sleep 10 as well as a couch + air mattresses for several more. See below for more details on sleeping/bedroom arrangements. We also have a brand new pack and play sleeper.

Feel free to check out our sister property and my other listing "Large Hyco Home" for reference.

Accessibility:
There are no steps from the driveway to the main level of the house, master bedroom, living room, and kitchen. The lot is not too steep but there are stairs and steps to get to the dock.

Optional Boat Rental:
We partner with Hyco Boat Rentals and they have pontoon boats available for rent. We have negotiated a special discount with them that we pass along to our guests.

The boats come with lifejackets. Let us know if you are interested and we will help coordinate/provide more information if there is availability.

Boat renters should have previous boating experience and will receive an orientation and safety lesson from the team. Often times the boat can be delivered and picked up directly from the dock!

Guest access
Entire Home, yard, and boat-dock.

Other things to note
We do not allow pets.

The neighbors allow their dogs to peacefully wander the neighborhood. If they come by Acorn Landing please do not feed them or let them into the house. They are very cute and friendly, however, please resist the urge to feed them and let them into the home.

The water trampoline is not for guest use.

Quiet time is between 10 pm and 6 am. Please do not play outside music and keep noise to a minimum in order to respect our neighbors.

We have a ring doorbell camera, a camera facing the driveway, a camera facing the dock, and a camera facing the back of the house. We don't actively monitor the cameras and respect our guests' privacy.

Use of the kayaks, paddle-boards, and other water toys are at guests' own risk and liability.

Acorn Landing is close to Virginia International Raceway, Hyco Marina, Jibtopia, Bar 119, Roxboro Country Club, and other area attractions. Feel free to ask us for any other local information.

The primary renter must be at least 30 to rent Acorn Landing.

While we don’t require you to start a load of towels, it really helps us out because of the Covid timing restrictions, and it may let the next guests check-in early.

I've loved the lake life since I was little spending my summers with family on Lake Michigan, Lake Mahopac in New York, and in Minnesota. When my family moved to North Carolina, we knew we had to keep the tradition alive and were lucky to stumble upon Hyco Lake, a little known hidden gem on the NC / VA border. I love Hyco and everything about it. People are friendly, the water is calm, and the lake has a rural charm while being within an hour from the research triangle and Chapel Hill (where I grew up). I'm renting out my family's beloved childhood lake house so guests can enjoy it while I’m up north (moved to NY after graduating from UNC, GO HEELS!) and my parents are empty nesters. Also, helping friends rent out their beloved home so guests can enjoy when they aren't living the lake life themselves! Recently partnered with a childhood friend to create a Wrightsville experience at his families' beach house and another in downtown Wilmington. Aim to provide new and unique experiences to share with guests.
