Lake Rhodhiss Estates

What makes Lake Rhodhiss, Lake Rhodhiss Estates, and Valdese so Special…Lots of space for Boating. One of the most underutilized Lakes in the Area. Great for fishing, and any recreational boating activity. Sandy bottom lake that area municipalities use for drinking water. Duke Power has preserved miles and miles of shoreline that will never be developed.
