  • Lake Gaston Vacation

    "We rented the house for a week in September. The location and the property are just beautiful, right on the lake, at one of the widest parts, so the view is very expansive. A dock is at the lake edge, where you can tie up a boat, or swim. Next to that is a small sandy beach area. Built above the dock area is a large deck. Being right on the water, it will be buggy in the evening, so bring your bug repellent. The property is steep, and the house sits at the top, which provides great lake views. You get up to the house from the lakeside via a long, winding set of steps that have low risers. It’s a long pleasant walk, not strenuous, and the distance creates two very distinct recreation areas. A deck runs the full width of the rear of the house. Open the sliding glass door, and you are in the family room/den. The house is very up-to-date, nicely decorated, well maintained, and very comfortable. It was just the two of us, so we could not give an opinion on how the accommodations would be with a much larger group, other than to say that the house is exactly as pictured and described. The front of the house faces the road, and is set back quite a distance, so it’s very private all around. The community pool/playground/park is a short walk down the road. It closed after Labor Day, but we walked there a few times – it would be a nice plus for kids. There are only two mediocre restaurants nearby, plus a pizza place. We didn’t care to drive further in search of better restaurants, so we cooked at the house more. I made two observations to the owner. One, my wife felt that the cookware was kind of an odd assortment of pieces, and on several the Teflon was wearing off. You might consider bringing cookware that you think you would really need. Second, while the TV is nice, the system is a little outdated, with an old very basic DVD player, and no DVR service. I suggested to the owner that replacing the DVD player, and adding DVR service, would make big improvements to the entertainment equipment. One other suggestion – some prior guests recommended renting a pontoon boat, which we did for a day and had a great time. They mentioned renting from Morningstar Marina, which is across the lake. I would recommend driving a little further, and renting from Stonehouse Timber Lodge. The cost is much less ($220 vs. $289), they are open an hour longer, and the staff there are like a family, very friendly and helpful. We would certainly highly recommend the rental of this property."

  • Tranquil and peaceful

    "My stay at this location was as expected peaceful and tranquil. The owners provided me all the info needed for accessing the home. The home setting is very natural and the views were awesome as the leaves were at their peak. There was a good feeling of fall in the air which kept me off the ski but there were couple of nice boating days. The doc area is convenient to the house with the boardwalk and the fishing was good for crappie and bass. It was a nice place to enjoy a coffee as the sun broke through the fog coming off the water on crisp mornings. This is a nice area for cycling with some hills and the Virginia backroads are always interesting. Danville is only 25 minutes away and has some great single track mtn bike trails at Angler's Ridge. I have to give a kudos to the Dollar General in Semora for not being the typical DG and having most essentials you might need grocery wise. All said I had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to stay at this location again."

  • Paradise on Lake Gaston

    "We were there over the weekend and it was a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and very well stocked with everything you need. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The two level dock was also great. There was plenty of room for fishing and laying out. The walkway made it easy access and you didn't have to climb a steep hill to get back from the water. I caught a 9lb 7 oz catfish right off the dock shortly after we arrived. That caused a lot of excitement. It is a very quite area in a cove right off the main lake and very convenient to everything we needed. A Food Lion is just a few miles down the road. We will definitely be renting this one again in the future. The best we have ever rented at Lake Gaston over the years."

  • Cozy Cottage in Sherrills Ford

    "Our week on Lake Norman was awesome despite the not so perfect weather. The cottage is both comfortable and eclectic like the owners John and Carole. They were both very hospitable and helpful during our stay. It provides all of the comforts of home with an awesome view of the Lake from the screened back porch. It is also convenient to all that Mooresville has to offer. We tried to book the property again for a trip we are planning in late March 2015 but unfortunately it was not available for our week. We definitely recommend it to all who are looking for a peaceful getaway on Lake Norman."
