I suppose they will just stop coming and then the town will be complaining about the loss of revenue for businesses.
Actually, this is a practice that has not been encouraged - ever - (rentals) - as the region was not developed as resort/vacation but rather as residential and permanent homesites.

Out of touch in what way?

The were many industries that were built along lake erie who used their water for industry processes. Lake Norman is not use for that. I understand that.

Oh well-I wasn't discussing whether they had been encouraged, but that they existed in fairly large numbers and that Cornelius had this year banned SF homes being used as VRs.
As this information is correct I don't know why you suggested I was out of touch, except to point out that I don't live in the US. That would be correct, however my husband does live there and we have owned our home over there for 3 years and are familiar with the VR market around Lake Norman.

I didn't realize this was going on that much (rentals). I knew there had been a lot of upset over it w/ homeowners, as the neighborhoods were not developed for rentals. I do know people who have had property, tho, for 30 plus years, and have had very small "cottages" they have used as weekend/vacation property for their own families. I suspect there will be ordinances passed at some point to prohibit vacation rentals.

I'm sure there will be.Now that Cornelius has done it others will probably follow suit. If you google Lake Norman vacation rental,a lot of the lake rentals are advertised on the popular vacation rental sites, and there is also Lake Norman vacation station.
Anyway, I am sure we are way off topic here but as you say I think a lot of houses were almost like fishermans cottages-very small and basic.I know our road was just a track until around 1970. I wonder if people have bought them and then demolished them to build new homes on.There are still some homes that you would and think-that looks more like a weekend home than a permanent one, but most are permanently occupied now.
The lot next door to us has never been built on.I find it amazing that the subdivision has existed since the 60s and there are still lots that haven't been built on (these are not waterfront lots BTW!)
We are so in awe of the area where our home is as we have nothing remotely like it in the UK. I suppose people will think, "silly Brits, it's nothing" but to us we never grow tired of the view, the peace and the space around us.

Well, that sounds like a little piece of heaven to me!!!! I only wish I had been able to buy one of those houses "back when." I love that area.
