Lake to live on near Winston Salem or Greensboro

Hi,

We would like to move to a lake no more than 1 1/2 hours to Greensboro. We thought about High Rock Lake, but are concerned about the water levels and the control from Alcoa. Can anyone suggest another lake we should take a look at? Lake James is too far. We would rather not share a lake with a nuclear power plant, too!

Thanks for your help!

Lake Norman would be a perfect place to have a home. It's a beautiful area. Good luck.

Lake Norman is incredibly overpriced IMO...

I have some friends who want to retire here.(Belews Lake) Right now, they have an overpriced home by Lake Wylie (SC) - really Charlotte NC

Not sure if Lake Hickory would appeal to you:

Belews is near Greensboro, but it's a nuclear lake too.

^ The power plant at Belews Lake is not nuclear, it's coal-fired.

Well good. After all the time I spent falling off water skis up there it's nice to know I won't glow in my old age.

To OP..

Anyway, wouldn't some real mountain lake be better, even if father...? Why does it have to be within 1.5 hrs drive from Greensboro? Do you intend to commute? The title Lake to live on near Winston Salem or Greensboro seems confusing to me....
