Property description

Come and enjoy one of Virginia’s and North Carolina’s best kept secrets! Lake Gaston is a clear and beautiful lake located in the Piedmont of southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. It is the last major impoundment on the Roanoke River, and offers excellent water quality and water level fluctuations that are less than one foot. It is 35 miles long and has over 350 miles of shoreline. Lake Gaston is within a three hour drive of Washington DC, an hour and a half to two hours from Raleigh North Carolina and Virginia Beach Virginia.

A Food Lion grocery, an Ace Hardware, a Subway, and an indoor/outdoor flea market (Friday through Sunday) are all located less than 15 minutes from the house. Thursday night, it’s bingo at the local fire hall. Restaurants are scattered around the lake and they range from diner style to more upscale. The closest large town is Roanoke Rapids, and is a 20 minute drive from the house. A large mall with a Belk Store, Super Wal-Mart, movie theater, and numerous eateries are located there.

You can find paradise at our lake house! It is two levels and has everything you will need to make your stay at Lake Gaston an enjoyable one. We have Cable TV, video and DVD players (movies provided), board games, books and puzzles...everything that will provide inside entertainment for family evenings or during inclement weather.

Outside is where the real fun is! Our backyard leads right to the water and our boat dock, which is the center of lake life. The water off the dock is about 6 feet deep which is great for older kids and adults. Younger kids do well with the shallow water by the shore. Swimming, fishing, sunbathing (don’t forget the sunscreen), and relaxing all happen right there. It’s a great place to view the beautiful evening sky and sunsets. Skiing and tubing can be started right in front of the dock.

Besides the water sports, fishing is excellent at Lake Gaston! Available species include striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, perch, sunfish, and our favorite dinner fish, channel catfish. Fishing from the dock is a favorite pastime for both young and old alike. Early mornings and evenings are usually better, but when is fishing not good?

Lastly, one of the best pastimes at the lake is RELAXING! Whether it be enjoying the view, reading a book, napping in the sun, soaking in the hot tub, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit at night, or mountain biking on the nearby trails. There is something about the lake that lets you leave everyday stress behind for awhile. This is what we most enjoy about our lake house. One day of vacation and you will feel as if you've been there a week already! We invite you to come and see for yourselves.

Comfortable, roomy lakefront home located in northeast quadrant of Lake Gaston.

Two living areas with a kitchen and a bar/kitchenette. Main level living and dining room has a wall of glass. Spectacular views overlooking the lake from inside or on the main deck (partially covered), balcony, fire pit to make s'mores at night and dock; with seating on each.

6' water depth at the end of the dock. Two boat slips are available, 1 covered and 1 uncovered.

A concrete boat ramp & a large picnic shelter are two hundred feet away. Located in a quiet cove for swimming, yet seconds away from the main lake. No bridges or tunnels to navigate.

Main level has living room, kitchen, large dining table, master bedroom with king bed, and 1 full newly remodeled bathroom . Another Bedroom is located on the main floor with a Full Bed.

Upper level has newly remodeled full master style bathroom with tub and separate shower. Upper level has 2 bedrooms: 1 with a full bed, a set of twin bunk beds, and the other room has two twin beds. A kitchenette area is located on this level, with a mini-fridge, and sink, along with a private balcony. Also on this level is a sitting area equipped with a love seat, and two comfy chairs, along with a couch that has a pull-out sofa.

There are 3 cable TVs-one in living room and 2 of the bedrooms; 3 with DVD/VCR players.

Not only enjoy the water, but enjoy taking an early morning walk around this quiet, lovely neighborhood. This will be a vacation home to remember and a vacation to remember! Additional pictures can be provided.

P.S. Spring and fall are great times to enjoy Lake Gaston. The water is warm, the scenery is grand, and it feels like your own private lake.
