We stayed at this cottage with our 3 kids, ages 9, 11, & 13. We kept our boat at the dock. This has everything you need and more: dock, pier, deep water, jumping platform, plenty of fishing, swimming, and boating! The Obrien SuperBouncer and the Paddle Boat were a big hit with the kids. A nice, shady dock in the afternoon was a big hit with Mom. A very easy walk to the water from an attractive, comfortable house with great water views. We brought in our groceries the first evening and just played the rest of the week. Very highly recommended.

About the owner: That's me having fun on the family deck boat...Hope to see you at the Lake!
Why the Owner Chose Macon:
We own a beach house and a lake house. We (and the kids) have more fun in the water at our lake house. My original intention in buying at Lake Gaston was to flip the house, however, while we were working on the house (even when the market was great) we discovered that we were not going to ever sell it. The kids enjoy swimming at the lake more than the waves and sand at the ocean. My wife would not let me borrow any more $ so I had to sell a mint condition classic corvette to build the boathouse you see in the photos.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Deep Water. Jumping off the top of the boathouse. Skiing early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Wake Boarding and tubing mid-day. We enjoy swimming right off the dock on our deep but protected cove (no worry of main lake boat traffic). We also enjoy walking and jogging in the neighborhood (paved streets, but in a wooded environment). It just feels comfortable there. I'm not a big fisherman, however, the folks who love fishing also keep comming back.
