What a great vacation home! It was beautifully decorated, and located on a peaceful cove of the lake. We enjoyed the two kayaks that came with the house, and rented a speed boat from Morningstar Marina. Almost all our daylight hours were spent on or in the water. We have rented vacation homes for 20 years, and this home was furnished with everything to cook for and entertain a large group of people for the whole week.

What an excellent time was had by all. The large kitchen was the meeting place for everyone and the layout is great. Our room was in the expansive lower level and it was so private with our own entrance off the patio. This house has some many entertaining areas, you can spend time with the group or find you own private retreat. The numerous outdoor patios and decks allow you to be at one with nature. We spend most nights on the top deck of the boat dock. Very peaceful and private with a beautiful lake breeze. The outdoor deck was great for cooking and socializing. The decor was amazing... it is nicer than our house... A great time was had by everyone. We will definitely plan another trip to Murphy's Landing

Wow, what a great place to have the family reunion.! I had no idea that we could stay in a home that is so beautiful with all the amenities. It's so comfortable ,peaceful, relaxing and very exciting. Unique is the best way to describe Murphy's Landing. There is always an inviting area either on the decks or at the water on the huge boat house. There was so much room throughout the entire home with a great kitchen and dining area..This was the best escape from reality and our family loved it.I can't imagine anything having gone better and you can definitely count on us coming back .It's been a lovely family vacation on the lake.

This house is just amazing! It's beautifully decorated and has a gourmet kitchen with a table that can seat 12. It's perfect for getting together with a large family or with friends.There are 3 decks to relax on and if you don't feel like relaxing you can take a ride in one of the 2 kayaks that are included in the rental. We have our own boat so we were very happy to find out that the boat launch is very close to this house. You can play pool, ping pong, darts or one of the many board games or puzzles the owners have provided for you. The boat house deck is a perfect place to go fishing, have a party or just sit and read a book. This house is in a great neighborhood, is on a large lot and is very private. We spent a lot of time walking early in the morning and after dinner. We were able to connect to the internet easily, watch TV/movies, and play video games. At the end of the day when we were all exhausted we were able to retire to very cozy and comfortable bedrooms. I was very impressed with this house and look forward to visiting again this summer. We said many times during the week, "IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!"

Why the Owner Chose Macon:
LAKE GASTON . . . one of Virginia's and North Carolina's top recreation lakes with a cleared bottom, relative constant water level, and clean water. Where the sky is the limit for family fun and relaxation. A beautiful lake 34 miles long, providing 20,300 acres of surface area and 350 miles of shoreline. Lake Gaston's natural beauty and a mild climate year-round gives your family a calendar full of fun and educational activities. All types of boating can be found, as well as skiing and the use of wave runners. Lake Gaston is well stocked with game fish, including rockfish, large-mouth bass, crappie, sunfish, and several varieties of catfish. Lake Gaston is family oriented -- you will find very little commercialism, not a lot of traffic and caution lights, and everyone is friendly!
