Lake Life

Life on Lake Wylie

River Hills Plantation is resort living...  Everyday!  There’s so much to enjoy...golf, tennis, walking the tree-lined streets, and best of all, the ease of boating!  There’s nothing better than being able to walk to the River Hills Marina after work and go for a sunset cruise. Or, take a cold one and just sit on the deck overlooking the water.  The stress of the day melts away in minutes!

The march South from Northern Virgina

Our family moved from northern Virginia to River Hills Plantation in July 2014 after searching numerous neighborhoods in south Charlotte.  Tired of the cookie-cutter neighborhoods, our realtor suggested visiting the River Hills mentioning it is a gated community with security – so we did.

River Hills Marina Club

River Hills Marina Club

When we decided to come home to the River Hills Plantation, we knew that a boat would be in our future.  It didn’t take long before the Charlotte Boat Show beckoned, and after going “just to look,”we needed a place to dock the new boat.  We joined the River Hills Marina Club in 2007 and have been members ever since.  The Marina’s informal motto is “the best place on Lake Wylie to dock your boat is at River Hills Marina”, and in my opinion, that’s a solid fact.  Set in Joe’s Cove, just off of the main channel of Lake Wylie, the Marina offers safety and seclusion for its members and their boats, yet we’re 2 minutes from the main body of the lake.  It is also reassuring to know that River Hills Security patrols the landside of the Marina and the docks themselves, keeping a close eye on our valuable watercraft.
