Property description

Are you ready for the Ultimate Lake Experience' ? If so, 'California Dreamin' is the place for your dream vacation. The house is a tri-level, with each level having a full kitchen and a kitchenette on the third floor. The house was decorated by Creative Designs By Sondra, who's list of client's include rap singer Missy Elliott and was featured on MTV 'CRIBS'. Sondra has also won many awards at the Home-A-Rama in Tidewater, VA and has won the Golden Award for the best swimming pool design.
This lake house is decorated 'to the MAX' and you will feel like you are in the penthouse of Lake Gaston. Amenities include Jacuzzi tubs on all three levels, Foosball table in the basement, Ping Pong table on the upper level, Work Out room with eliptical and free weights on the main level and of course an awesome view of the lake with a boat lift and pier to tie up to, if needed. The boat ramp is about 5 miles up River Road and is maintained by Dominion Power for public use. Pontoon boats can easily be launched with no hassles.
The house is perfect for multi-family rental, weddings, and family reunions. The main level ''room over garage' has two bunk beds and two trundle beds. Will sleep 9 kids total. The kids will feel like they have their own separate area to 'be kids'. A toddler bed is also ready to set up and can be easily moved.
The house is complete with satellite T.V. and wireless internet service. Phone service is limited to 911 service only, so you will want to bring your cell phone.
Each level of the house has it's own deck area, complete with lounges, patio furniture, and that amazing view of the lake! A gas grill is provided on the basement patio and man level deck. So, come on down, ready to 'chill and grill', swim, fish, boat, ski, relax and soak up the most beautiful lake Carolina has to offer.

**The water is clear, warm, and beautiful. Located in the Piedmont area 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.
