"We loved the MacDaddy! Our company does leadership retreats all across the globe, usually in amazing locations such as San Diego, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, and even the Four-Season’s in Hawaii.
Many of us were surprised when our district manager informed us that we were going to a little known place called Lake Gaston and staying at rental home. As soon as we arrived, our concerns vanished completely. The MacDaddy is amazing!
The entire group agreed it was our favorite venue for an offsite leadership retreat because of the house and all of Lake Gaston had to offer. The floor plans on all three floors of this beautiful home allowed us to have our seperate break out sessions in the mornings and then we spent the rest of the day deciding from the full suite of offerings the MacDaddy had to offer…kayak rides to goat island (it's a must see! Goats really are on a small island right near the house), hot tub, heated pool with waterfall, beer pong, frisbee golf, outdoor firepit, boat rides, sea-doo rides, skiing, tubing, wake boarding and my new favorite, wake surfing.
We also had our entire week professionally catered per the owners recommendation so we had very little to worry about except drinking our next margarita. The owners truly went out of their way to be sure that we were taken care of so we highly recommend that you consider staying at the MacDaddy for your next offsite business meeting or certainly a family vacation also.
PS - We also rented their boat and watercraft which I highly suggest to all to enjoy touring the lake, it’s huge!"

"We thank you first of all for letting us stay in your house. It has everything anyone could ever need. It was a very quiet location, plenty of yard to play in, and the deck was our favorite place. The added gate was great so my dog could roam out side without us having to worry about her on the porch of the house. The house was very clean, plenty of linens, everything you would need for cooking in the kitchen. Plenty of beds and pillows. One thing I would add is a book shelf behind the couch or against the wall in the kitchen for a place to keep our food that we brought. All the cabinets were full of dishes and things to cook with but there was no where to put the food we brought except to put it on the counter, so that left little space to eat on the counter. Everything else was great. We were leary of putting our ski boat in because of the water level but had no problem. We will definetly will consider this place again. We even brought my 93 year old mom and she had a good time even went for two boat rides. My husband also caught a 30lb. catfish right off the dock. We will be having a fish fry this coming week. I would recomend this place to everyone. It's very elderly friendly. Thanks again, can't wait for next time"

"Owners were so helpful during our stay. Many thanks. The cabin is so peaceful with stunning views. The feel of being way back in the woods, but so close to everything. I came with my two grown children and daughter in law, to visit my 91 year old Mother in Charlotte, for Mothers day. Admittedly it was a short stay, and we did not have time to enjoy all the amenities Griff,s place offers. My favorite was enjoying the sunsets over the water from the porch swing and hammock on the covered back porch. Owners are the most thoughtful people. The Cabin was ultra clean, well stocked. Martha's thoughtful instructions were appreciated. We plan to come back and stay longer."
