Living on High Rock Lake is great! There are a couple of draw backs though. First it is a long commute to nearby big cities. Second, there are not a lot of local choices when it comes to food and shopping. Speaking of food I have to give a plug for Southern BBQ in Southmont, they have great service and awesome food.
Thats about all the drawbacks... The good stuff is everything else! The summer is great since you can play on and in the water. Fishing is some of the best around. I think the winter is one of my favorite times to be living on the lake. The boat traffic is very slim and if you go out on a weekday, it is like having the whole lake to yourself. Also, I see more wildlife like the Bald Eagle I saw last summer.
This is a great time to buy on the lake also since intrest rates are down and buyers have a lot of homes to choose from. Also, investors are getting their fill as they buy houses now while prices are low and plan to sell them again when the market picks up again.
