"Perfect alternative to The Hampton Inn. Went hiking, toured the winery and attended a wedding at Blueberry Hill Farm - all 3 venues were nearby! Enjoyed the quaintness and charm. Stayed in main cabin - plenty of room for all 7 of us and 2 dogs!"

"My family rented this lake house while we visited Statesville, NC for a wedding. The house is very large with great spaces for hanging out as a family. And lots of small private decks, porches and hideaways if you need personal time away from your group. We appreciated that each bedroom had its own private bathroom as well as a guest half bath. The weather in early October is great as we took advantage of the large deck for grilling and the smaller sunny spaces on both the dock and waterfront deck. Not really sure which side of the lake we were on, but is was the sunny side, important for those renting later in the year. The kitchen set up made it easy for food prep and even when we were spread out in different rooms, we still felt connected to one another. Did I mention commercial ice maker! The property was clean and the outdoor spaces and landscaping were well taken care of. If I had the opportunity I would rent this property again, but stay longer and bring a boat, jet ski or something that floats in order to take advantage of the lake. (water was 75 degrees)."

"As a grandmother of seven grandchildren - 6 of them 4 years old and under, I was very apprehensive about going anywhere near any water for a vacation this year. Historically we would have gone to an ocean beach. I let my daughters know how nervous I was about all those little people being around the ocean and one of them suggested a lake house. I have never been to a lake house before. What an enjoyable, relaxing vacation! The little people could play in the water while the adults relaxed on their chairs and very little hands-on was required. The grassy area from the house to the lakefront was so much nicer than all the sand! We played all kinds of games there. There were small fish and a turtle came by one day for entertainment. I caught four fish IN A CHILD'S NET! We played duck-duck goose, croquet, play-doh, magnatiles, scrabble and made homemade ice cream. We rented a pontoon boat one day. We used the kayaks daily and the paddleboat. In addition, the Lake Gaston bird farm with about 100 species of birds and other farm animals is within walking distance. The kids loved it. Farmer Dick was really good with the little ones. The Ward's home was equipped with everything we needed to cook. The setup was great and handled my two daughters' families and I quite nicely. Underneath my bedroom suite is an outdoor "den" with a TV that we never even turned on. We spent most of our time there. The place was incredible. There seriously was nothing that we said, "I wish I would have brought, xxx." Eloise and Rick answered all our questions prior to arrival - they have sliced off a little piece of heaven. We will be back! I have already referred this place and provided contact information for some folks who are excited to check it out!"
