We've had our 24 foot boat on Kerr Lake for 8 years and there was only a problem with low water one summer. Otherwise, we never had a problem with the boat or the lake. There are plenty of larger boats and jet skis on that lake and I assume they're not having problems either since they're tooling around up there. Satterwhite Point Marina is on Kerr Lake and they are a great resource for information if you want to check further. Satterwhite Point Marina on Kerr Lake

Also near the lake is Dan Nicolas Park. DanNicholasPark.org, Salisbury, NC - Your Best Entertainment Bargain!
Restaurants in the downtown I highly recommend is Sweet Meadow Cafe and La Cava.

I found this site to look at homes that is permitted on this forum since it doesnt go to one specif realtor is
real estate, lakefront properties, lake property, lake homes for sale, waterfront properties, lakefront, waterfront

Badin Lake would be my other choice near the town of Troy.

Awesome! Thanks so much!! I will check them out.

Lake Norman or Lake Wylie...Lake Tillery is pretty but in the middle of no where, kinda boring. Lake Norman has all the conforts of town, which of course makes it more expensive. Lake Wylie is futher away but its a decent size lake and you can get more bang for your buck property wise. Lake Johnson in RDU is more like a big pond then a lake. MB is alot of fun if your in the right area, tons of golf communities and the beach. Sounds like they would be happy in a nice patio home on a golf course close to the beach and boardwalk type places you mentioned. However, the traffic in MB during the tourist season is ridiculous, they might end up never leaving the house because its such a pain in the butt to get anywhere.

Any suggestions? It would probably be best for them to be at least around 20 or so minutes from a small town where they can do their shopping and probably where a hospital is etc. My Mom really likes little towns, antique shops, colonial stuff, etc. But that isn't really a priority - just a little background. My Dad just would like the water I think.

Any info or experiences you have would be very helpful! Where are your parents retired? How do they like it?

(also... I think the in-laws would like living in a neighborhood near or on a golf course... but I think they like the "board walk" atmosphere.. so I was thinking Myrtle beach area might be better for them)
Perfect little retirement home only eight miles from Pinehurst with it's fine First Health medical facility.
If I didn't already have a home I would be buying this one.Foxfire golf resort 5 minutes down the road.
