About

Lake Rhodhiss (pronounced “Road-hiss” by the locals) was formed in 1925 with the creation of the Rhodhiss dam.

Lake Rhodhiss is just smaller than it’s neighbor to the east (Lake Hickory) and has 90 miles of shoreline with a surface area of approximately 3,060 acres. Some beautiful mountain views can be seen from this lake and full pond elevation is 995.1 feet. There are four public boat access areas and one bank fishing area on the lake in cooperation with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.

Lake Rhodhiss has long been the forgotten lake on the Catawba River chain and really didn’t see any development until the early 2000s. However, in the past 20 years, the Lake has really taken off with several large lakefront communities on the north and south shores of the Lake.  Those neighborhoods include the gated communities of Paradise Harbor, Harbor Ridge, and Lake Vista on the south side as well as The Waterfront club, Edgewater, Hayes Mill Landing, and Broadwater on the north side of the lake.  All of the communities have available main channel lots.  Prices start at $79,900 for a main channel dockable homesite.   Check out this video of the main channel of Lake Rhodhiss

 

Top reasons to consider Lake Rhodhiss

  1. Value – Lake Rhodhiss being one of the later lakes in the are to be developed still has much more available land than its neighboring lakes.  Thus with a higher supply of available lakefront lots it has kept pricing from rising nearly as quickly as other area lakes.  Lake Rhodhiss homesites are also typically larger than some of those on the surrounding lakes so you tend to find more acreage for your money as well.  Looking for Lake and mountain views on a waterfront property but don’t want to pay the Lake James pricing?  This is the Lake.
  2. Clean Waters –  Lake Rhodhiss is the second lake from the top of the Catawba River chain (just east of Lake James)

    Thus it has some of the cleanest/clearest waters in the area. Fish and game from the lake are safe to eat and the nearby town of Granite Falls pulls it’s drinking water directly from the lake.  Another factor is the small amount of homes on the Lake.  With only 100 or so homes on the lake there are many portions of the lake where you are the only person around and with all the protected natural shoreline, lack of waves, and boat traffic the lake continues to be very clean and clear.

  3. Feel and views of the mountains but more moderate temperatures

    Located just north of I-40 in western North Carolina just between the cities of Hickory and Morganton you find yourself right at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  Annual snowfall will average between 6 and 10 inches so you can still get a little taste of the mountains but for the most part you are just south of the snow line yet can take in views of the mountains all year round.

  4. Proximity to necessities       Lake Rhodhiss is located only about an hour north of Charlotte,  East of Asheville , and South of Boone so this lake is very centrally located in the western part of the state.  Another huge plus is the proximity to hospitals, restaurants, grocery, interstates, shopping etc.  The vast majority of Lake Rhodhiss will have you within 15 minutes to the towns of Hickory or Morganton which meet all of your medium size town needs.  Hickory has a population of roughly 40,000 while Morganton has about 20,000 people.  This is a great website for some of the happenings in the Hickory area.  https://www.visithickorymetro.com/
  5. Nature A large portion of the Land surrounding the lake is owned by Duke Energy who operates most lakes on the river chain

    Duke maintains that their plan is to keep Lake Rhodhiss a naturalistic lake.  With all this vacant land around the lake Wildlife abounds.  It’s a daily sight to see beaver, raccoon, blue heron, ducks, and muskrat along the shoreline of this lake. It’s almost impossible to take a drive through the lakefront community of Paradise Harbor and not see one of the several flocks of turkey that live in the pine forest. Tougher to find species but present in the area are whitetail deer, black bear, and soaring bald eagles. This lake is second to none in the area for wildlife viewing.
