The tenth annual Lake Carolina Oyster Roast is just a little over a month away, and we’re getting more and more excited with each passing day. Not only is it perfect for seafood lovers (few things are yummier than an oyster, perfectly roasted), but it’s also the place to be for lovers of good Southern cooking. This year, we’re happy to announce an extension to the Oyster Roast menu that includes: Pulled pork barbecue, a chili bar, and smoked chicken and rice gumbo. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it!

In addition to those must-eat dishes, there’s going to be some great live entertainment, making the Oyster Roast at the Lake House the perfect place to spend your Saturday. And in case you need any more reasons to attend one of the best Lake Carolina events of the year, proceeds from the Oyster Roast will be donated to the Children’s Charities of the Midlands!

Join us March 1st for entertainment, famous food, and some quality family fun. Event-goers will receive $5 off their tickets when they’re purchased in advance here
Can’t wait to see you there!

All the Bells and Whistles: The New Windsor Plan

Lake Carolina’s most popular plan has gotten a few upgrades! From a new squared off breakfast area, to the now-standard additional hall bathroom located on the second floor (a feature that was once an upgrade), the Windsor Plan has changed for the better.

And there’s no question why this is the hottest selling plan in Ashland Downes at Lake Carolina. Consider all the amazing standard features: gorgeous hardwood floors, a conveniently placed breakfast area, huge private yards for time spent outside with the kids, wide lots for a side garage, a beautifully tiled master shower, and that’s just to name a few. When you’re looking to build your dream home, what better route to go than Windsor?

Go ahead, take a tour:
