We spent a great week-end here, except that it wasn't long enough! It is a wonderful home with a spacious sun-room. The kitchen is complete with all appliances and every gadget you could possibly need. It even has a Pampered Chef apple corer!! The dock & boathouse were perfect for swimming and fishing. It is at a great location on the lake, and we hope to return next year for a week. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful get-away with others.

This house really was a fantastic choice for our vacation. We had 7 adults and 3 kids and it never felt cramped! The cove could not have deen better...very little boat traffic so the boys were able to jump off the diving board as well as the second story dock about a million times! We caught lots of fish, including 2 large catfish and a really nice bass! The paddleboat was used often and was a great amenity. Overall it was a really nice stay! Pros: the kitchen is stocked better than mine at home and the items in it are high quality; the beds are incredibly comfortable; only 6 or 7 minutes to the store/gas station/pizza shop; the dock is spacious enough for everyone even while the kids are jumping off of it; the storage shed on the dock was such a fantastic idea...it made for the perfect place to throw things in the evening without having to lug anything up to the house; the hammock....LOVED the hammock; the owners - Bill answered all of my questions prior to booking very quickly. We had an issue with the Internet and Bill called multiple times to help resolve the issue and to follow up to make sure it was fixed. Cons: it would be really nice to have some large umbrellas on the dock as there isn't any shade once it gets past noon; it would be nice to have the use of one of the jet ski lifts. Although the cove is a no wake zone, not everyone honors that and you get lots of residual wake from the main lake, so the jet ski often rubbed and bumped the dock when tied up to it; it would be nice if the check-in time could be an hour or two earlier...I felt like by the time we unloaded the cars it was dinner time and there was really no lake time the first day. Overall the stay was fantastic and I would highly recommend this house to anyone!! Thanks for sharing your house with us!

Great Cove and Location on the Lake
Great Cove and Location on the Lake
This house had the best cove and swimming area of all the houses I have stayed in since I started vacationing on Lake Gaston. The location is great and the house was very comfortable. My group made up of family and friends had a wonderful time and would easily choose this home again.

We had a geat weekend at your home. The pictures don't do it justice. The weather was great for early October and we spent most of the weekend on your spacious dock. We had 9 in our group and newer felt crowded. The kids loved the paddleboat.

We just returned from a fantastic week at this house. The location was perfect, in a beautiful cove just off the main lake. The 2-tier docks were wonderful for sunning as well as jumping, diving and fishing. The house is very well equipped, spacious and comfortable. The sunroom was fantastic for dining and evening games. The owners are very accommodating and we can't wait to return next year---one week was no where near long enough!

We enjoyed our week at lake Gaston at this home. Weather was great, home is very comfortable, and very well equiped. The sunroom was a favorite place to relax, and the kids really enjoyed swimming, diving, and jumping from the platform. The kids even caught a 23" large mouth bass !

We had a great time at the lake! The house was tucked into a cove and the mornings were shaded with a slight breeze .... very relaxing. The new gas grill was awesome for cooking great meals. HBO and the DVD were nice additions for taking a break to watch movies. We had a great time using the paddle boat in the cove too! Just a very special place to get away & relax.

What a beautiful, comfortable home! A perfect combination of luxury and relaxation, it's a great place for gatherings of family and friends. The kitchen had everything. I think it was better equipped than my own - not something we've ever found in other rentals. This wasn't just a vacation rental, it was like visiting the much-loved home of friends. Water - perfect! The huge dock has plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the view. This is a place to return to time and time again. We loved it!! The Fenwick Family

About the owner: This property is where our family and close friends spend our spring and summer vacations. Many happy memories have been created and many more will be added. We enjoy this beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped home at all times of the year. We especially love sitting on the dock & enjoying the lake in the spring, summer & fall! The water is so clean & welcoming for swimming & boating. We take great pride in our home and keep it very well maintained. We welcome you to rent our home and create wonderful memories with your family and friends!
Why the Owner Chose Littleton:
We visited Lake Gaston several years ago & instantly fell in love with this beautiful lake. The water is so clean & refreshing and it is the perfect place to go boating, swimming & fishing. The lake is relatively quiet and very peaceful. We enjoy traveling the lake by boat, swimming off our dock or in the middle of the lake and sitting on the dock enjoying the view and boats traveling by the cove. It was the perfect place for our children to learn how to tube, water ski, knee board and wake board.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is located on the lake in a wide, well maintained cove right off the main lake. Swimming off the dock is just perfect and the main lake is visible form the house and the dock. The house is so comfortable and has the amenities to create a feeling of being at home. The water feels so wonderful; floating on a raft and watching the 'world go by' is heavenly. We love to take the boat to the main lake after dinner and watch the sun set. In the winter the sunset can be viewed from the dock.
