City GuideCornelius

Cornelius sits on the shore of Lake Norman, the largest man-made lake in North Carolina. The 34 mile-long lake offers 520 miles of shoreline.

Located along the southeastern shore of mammoth Lake Norman, the town of Cornelius is a northern neighbor of North Carolina's metropolis, Charlotte. The 1963 damming of the Catawba River by power conglomerate Duke Power (now Duke Energy) formed Lake Norman and created 70 miles of lakeside property in Cornelius alone. Today, not only does the lake provide the entire region with hydroelectric power, but it is also a popular spot for boating and other recreational activities.

Looking for an Apartment in Cornelius

While there's not really a bad time of the year to look for an apartment in Cornelius, play it safe and give yourself a few weeks to really get your bearings in your new surroundings before locking yourself into a lease. When you do head out on your search for your new amazing abode, don't leave home without the right paperwork. You should be able to show that you can afford the rent, so take a few paycheck stubs or a letter from your employer stating your salary. References from previous landlords can also help. Have one or two furry four-legged members? Make them irresistible to your future landlord by showing up-to-date vet records. Budget wisely, as well. Be prepared to hand over security and possibly pet deposits once you find your perfect spot.

Neighborhoods in Cornelius

Even the cheapest places in Cornelius come with a hefty price tag when compared to other NC cities. Naturally, the closer to the water the more you'll pay. Here are some of the town's best neighborhoods for renters.

Peninsula Club/Jetton Rd Area: This is the most exclusive area in this exclusive town. Waterfront properties, luxury apartment complexes and rental homes reign here.

Torrence Chapel Rd Area: Also on the water, more rental homes (and smaller ones at that) and smaller apartment complexes can be found here. You'll realize what a steal property is in this neighborhood and snatch it up the first chance you get.

Main St: This strip of land is the closest you'll get to a true downtown area in Cornelius. More renters tend to land here, with rental homes, townhomes and apartments abound.

Statesville Rd/Colonial Grand: Grocery stores, restaurants, banks and pretty much anything else you want or need can be found here. Several apartment complexes, with Colonial Grand being the biggest and fanciest (and most expensive), can also be found in this neighborhood.

Statesville Rd/Birkdale Village: Prices vary widely here. You can find deals on rental homes and even apartment complexes.

Living in Cornelius

Everything -- weekend activities, community events -- revolves around the lake. Not into active pursuits? Then fill a cooler with beer and launch a pontoon boat into Lake Norman. You won't be the only resident enjoying a lazy day on the lake. A championship golf course gets plenty of action as well, and Charlotte is just a short drive away.
