My family and I enjoyed the place. I would say the description doesn’t do it justice! I fell in love and felt at home as soon as Terry showed us the place. Everything was squeeky clean, the kitchen was well stocked and there was more then enough clean linens. There is good air conditioning, which i good to cool down from the heat. Also the ceiling fans were good to cat nap on the deck. I also second the Lazy 5 Ranch. My family had fun at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens in Belmont, the shops of Salisbury and Salisbury ghost tour. Definitely try the Cheerwine Soda, it is so yummy! I felt at home in the Heartland as I was attending a conference in Charlotte and the property is highly accessible with great parking area. It was great not to be couped up in a stuffy hotel room and be able to come home to a cooked meal as well as family and my dog. The paddle boat was fun and the water was warm. Terry was a great fishing guide, my husband and father were fishing within an hour of getting there. We had a BBQ our first night there and sat out by the fire pit, lots of wonderful memories. Great sunsets and wonderful sunrises (I got to see a crane and some other birds). We hope to return and be able to enjoy the Boat and Ski Club, but until then everyone else gets to enjoy all it has to offer.
