Macon house description

'This is not a rental property, this is an awesome LAKE HOME' - spring guest 2012
'Glad we paid the $300 extra vs. our old rental...no comparison' - spring guest 2010
'You and your wife thought of everthing, this home is just incredible' -spring guest 2010

All the 'typical' information is listed below, however, the reason that this home was recently ranked (by far) as the #1 ranked vacation home is because of the spectacular combination of views, quality of home, quality of detail throughout the entire home. The owners spend an average of 50 nights+ per year at the home with their family and are constantly monitoring the home and adding upgrades each and every year.

Recent 'extras' that have been added:
Underwater fishing lights that allow you to see the water come to life with huge fish once the sun goes down. Our kids have caught over 1,000 fish right off the boat dock over the years. From small an fish to trophy catches. 10 year old Zack has the longest fish (40' gar) and 12 year old Jake has the heaviest catch in a 40 lb catfish.

New Denon surround system on the boat house and in the main house. Control pandora or your own music from your iphone/droid with a free app.

New cleaning crew to add the 'signature series' touch to be sure that your vacation home is as clean as yours at home...don't settle for anything less.

New 65' samsung smart HDTV added to basement in 2013.

                      “Summer Place” boasts a full 1 acre homesite and is located in private gated community of Harbor Landing. Harbor Landing is one of the very few sub-divisions on Lake Gaston that has its own private boat launch, making getting your boat in and out of the water easier than ever. This home is located on the coveted “Main Lake” with incredible main lake views. Its perfect location gives the best views of evening sunsets. When looking at a map of Lake Gaston, “Summer Place” is located on the SW Quad of the lake at main lake mile marker #14.

                      Bonus: Wooded homesite on one side of this beautiful main lake home is vacant adding greatly to your privacy and enjoyment of a lake vacation.

                      Other Activities: Boating, wildlife viewing, mini golf, and kayaking.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: The Daltorio's are a family of 7 who enjoy their lake home. They also offer it for rent when not able to use it due to other activites of their 5 children. Update--It is now 5 children, one daughter-in-law and one grandson!

                      Why the Owner Chose Macon:
                      #1 ranked home in quality and overall satisfaction on Lake Gaston! last year survey of guests from Lake Gaston Rental Homes, LLC for all homes ranging from 4-9 bedrooms!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      When you take a vacation at a lake, it is very different from a typical beach vacation. We own investment properties at the beach, but our best memories and vacations have all been at Lake Gaston. A few helpful hints to remember: On the ocean, all homes have beautiful views. On the lake, not all views are created equal. The south side of the lake has tremendous sunset views. The Main Lake views are a must on vacation vs. being tucked away in a small or shallow water cove. Fortunately for us, our home offers the best of all of these options, and our previous renters whole-heartedly agree!
