Lake Overlook is a 7.5 acre nature preserve lake that is suitable for swimming, fishing, and paddling. No motors, gas, or oil allowed on the lake. We provide turkish towels, pool noodles, body boards, portable coolers, camp chairs, and 2 sit-on-top kayaks. There is an outdoor shower between the decks to rinse off from muddy lake adventures.

We truly take stocking the house for your convenience seriously and provide more amenities than we have personally experienced at a vacation rental because we know how frustrating it is to spend your vacation shopping for basics. Our long list includes tissues, napkins, paper towels, ample TP, dish soap, dishwasher soap, rinse aid, trash bags, hypoallergenic hand soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Forget your pads, tampons, tooth brush or paste? Check the drawer in the hall bath, we likely got you covered. Bathrooms also have sunscreen, bug spray, poison ivy treatment and first aid just in case! We like to be cozy, so there are ton of extra blanket options and lots of pillows.

The 20' x 15' deck with sliding glass doors into the great room features a six burner propane grill with a side burner and all of the tools for your outdoor cooking endeavors. Extra propane is stocked in the carport. We also have outdoor couches and a propane heater for comfort in cold weather. There's plenty of firewood around the property and we keep split wood in the carport wood rack.

We stock the kitchen with everything you need to cook including a wide variety of pots and pans, crock pot, ninja blender, baking sheets, brownie pans, food processor, convection (air fryer) toaster oven, and cooking utensils. We provide cooking oils, abundant seasonings, condiments, honey, tea, sugar in the raw packets, and coffee essentials including: fair trade beans, grinder, non-dairy creamer and mini moos. Our honor system wine rack is even first bottle free! We have abundant glass options including plastic cups and stemware, unique colored glassware, beer glasses, and cups with straws. We even have plastic plates and bowls for the kids, and plenty of glass plates and bowls. You'll even find ziplock baggies, parchment, foil, and plastic wrap.

For food you don't have to make, there are plenty of delivery options available, including restaurants, groceries, and alcohol. Everything you need can be delivered to you! Restaurants are opening back up to guests and there are ton of options in Hillsborough, Durham, and Chapel Hill.

The en suite bedroom features a Layla copper-infused king bed and luxury sheets. Plush rocking chair, full-length mirror, two dressers, nightstands with lamps.

Oversized couch and loveseat in the living room both sleep comfortably with an ottoman for optimal lounging. Fainting couch with reading lamp (Qi charges!) has a divine view of the lake, especially at sunset, and the most adorable nesting side tables with plenty of leather coasters to hold your drinks. The behind the couch table with 3 bar stools create flexible seating options for work, dining, or socializing. There is a glass wrought iron dining table with 4 chairs, plus in the kitchen you’ll find 2 additional wooden chairs, and wooden table with expandable leafs and felt on the legs which can be used as additional dining space if needed - just move to your heart's content!

We take COVID seriously. We allow 24+ hours between guests. Our turnover team wears a mask while cleaning and we stock extra masks in case you forgot your own. We have sanitizing wipes, paper towels, and use sanitizing cleaner between guests.
