Property description

Whether boating, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing under a Carolina blue sky, you will enjoy your vacation in this immaculately furnished waterfront home on beautiful Lake Gaston.

Relax in this open floor plan home with three bedrooms (2 queens & 2 sets of bunk beds) and 3.5 baths. Each room is its own suite. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for preparing simple or sophisticated meals with a large dining table to serve your family and guests. The living area has a comfortable sofa, love seat, and chair with a flat screen TV (Prism TV), DVD player, CD stereo, MP3/IPod docking station, and WiFi for your computer. Both kids and adults will enjoy an XBox 360 and PS2 with games, a large selection of DVD movies, music CD's, board games, puzzles and an extensive lending library of books. The view from the living area and spacious screened in porch is spectacular. The master bedroom has a separate entrance onto the screened porch.

The boathouse/dock has both sun and covered decking with chaise lounge chairs and a picnic table. Tie up cleats are provided to easily secure your watercraft to the dock (lift/slip unavailable). You will have access to the community boat ramp for your convenience. Lazily float on a raft while the kids jump off of the dock and swim in this protected inlet that is only feet from the main cove away from any boat traffic. Enjoy taking the 4 kayaks out for a peaceful, early morning nature tour around the cove. For the more competitive at heart, a horseshoe, corn hole or darts challenge may be in order. Or, just relax in the backyard hammock or swing overlooking the water after a busy day on the lake.

This home is truly 'Simply Charming'.
A grocery store, drug store, hardware store, and restaurants are located close by.
Located in the North West quadrant of Lake Gaston.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are the Andrews' family and our cottage on beautiful Lake Gaston is our dream come true.

Why the Owner Chose Littleton:
We have been coming up to Lake Gaston from Raleigh for 10+ years. Our neighbors in Raleigh have owned a home on the lake since we moved to Raleigh. They were always so generous with their invites to join them at their lake home several times a year. We fell in love with the area. In 2006, we started looking for a place of our own and 'Simply Charming' found us. We are delighted to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is our oasis away from the craziness of everyday life (work, school, homework, yard work, etc...). When we pull into the driveway, the stress melts away. It is so beautiful, peaceful, and fun. Enjoying a cup of coffee on the screened in porch early in the morning before a day full of swimming, fishing, boating, and relaxing is one of our very favorite things. The sun twinkling on the water is magical.
