Littleton house description

Hello... Welcome to our Lake Gaston home.

We have been coming to 'our' lake (as we like to think of it) for over ten years. We believe we have put together just the right package to make your time at the lake the best vacation you have ever had!!! Our hope is you will come back and enjoy our home again and again... just like we do. When you are ready, check out our availability calendar and see if we can find a date that works for both of us...

There is a half acre of fun situated at the end of a cul-de-sac on some great water (six feet off dock, with a sandy beach as well), all situated in a large cove at the entrance to Lizard Creek... less than a minute from the main bridges to negotiate. A circular driveway with lots of parking for your cars (our family has had as many as five, with room left over), as well as your boat trailers (you will see ours there as well). Just two minutes from the community boat ramp.

A 2400+-sq ft ranch house with a 300 sq ft sun room, five bedrooms, three baths, dual zone heat/air conditioning (one electric, one gas), large kitchen/dining area (15 foot breakfast bar w/ six stools), dining room table seats ten more. A den/recreation room with full size pool table & pub/game table, sun room has a combo poker/bumper pool table, indoor/outdoor Ping-Pong table, fireplace, four TVs each with satellite receivers and VCR/DVD combinations.

Four hundred square feet of decking off the sun room, both gas and charcoal grills, plus 1500 square feet of swim dock/covered boat house, w/ lifts for your boat and jet ski, and space to tie up two more,...horseshoe pits, bad mitten/volleyball nets/equip, basketball goal/court (one at the water as well).

For even more information and photos, ask us about and come take a look around our personal website... and our home. Peak in all the corners if you want, and see if this is not the right place for you and your crowd to enjoy the most relaxing summer of your life... That is our goal! You bring the family... and/or friends... and let us take care of providing the rest.

Hassle free fun is what we offer you... because, if it is too much work for either Mom or Dad, ain't no one having any fun!!! If you do not find everything you would like for your stay at the lake, well... it is either illegal, immoral, or we do not have the right zoning! But drop us a note and if it is doable, you just might find it here next year.

                  We also have a 24 ft, 14 person, used pontoon boat for rent for cruising the lake available right at the property.

                  Pontoon boat rental rates: $150.00/day, but call to discuss, used means it has some issues, runs great (new Honda motor), one pontoon has slight leak that requires monitoring.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  Why the Owner Chose Littleton:
                  We both grew up taking lake vacations in Wisconsin so we have enjoyed the water and know the kinds of things that make for a great vacation. Lake Gaston is perfect, clean water, large, lots to see, lake level remains constant by law and is fed by two other lakes upstream ...this was a big selling point since we had seen what some of the droughts had done to other lakes in the area over the years we were looking, but not at Lake Gaston

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  A TRUE gradual slope to the water, great semi-enclosed sandy swimming area, oversized dock, lots of flat yard for games, family oriented house for large gatherings (15 can eat in the same room), very close to main lake with large cove privacy, boat launch a minute away, great full time neighbors!!!
