"Nine of us ages 74-10 just spent a delightful week in this lovely home. The owners have spared no expense in keeping the home updated, clean and well stocked. They provide a pedal boat, chairs for the dock, and lots of information on the location - where to go and what to do. We loved diving and fishing off the dock - not at the same time. We caught catfish, small fry, and ta da....4 large mouth bass. We threw all but one back and had the nicest guy in world clean and debone one of the bass for us. We highly recommend renting a pontoon boat from Timber Lodge. Mike and Tyler are so nice and Mike is the guy who knows how to clean fish. We got two nice size filets from 3.5 lb bass and they were delicious. The home's location is pretty central to what you need. Taking garbage and recycling to a dump is inconvenient but I guess pretty standard for that setting. The DSL worked fine but we were in one of the few spots left in the country where you cannot call or text from your cell phone. I loved it but some of my group went through withdrawal. There is a sunroom that is perfect for family dining and playing Texas Hold'em, A cocktail table on which we did 2 puzzles, and a kitchen table that we used for cards and games. We didn't try any of the nearby restaurants because the online reviews weren't flattering. We loved Hwy 55 burgers though. The grill works as do all the kitchen appliances. We recommend Paradise on Lake Gaston to all who want a wonderful get-away place."

"We're just returned from The Best Vacation ever. This cottage was perfect for our family. The kayaks provided hours of fun. I loved sitting on the dock and watching boaters/jet skiers go by. We rented a boat for the week and loved every minute of riding "to the bridge" (Eaton Ferry) and beyond every day. I loved sitting on the covered deck for reading, we loved playing corn hole. Honestly, we loved every single thing about this visit to The Lily Pad on Lake Gaston and are already dreaming of staying there next year!"

"We had a wonderful three-family getaway, complete with boating, hiking, and tons of good food and drink. Joe was helpful and generous - gave us a thorough tour of the workings of the pontoon boat and did anything he could to keep us happy. The house is lovely, big, and well-equipped. The kids had a grand time sleeping upstairs in the game room, although it would have been nice if they slept in a little longer - perhaps the foosball table and TV were a bit too tempting. We had a grand time taking them on the pontoon boat across to the marina/campground for mini golf and ice cream - if we had another day we would have taken the boat up to the restaurant by the bridge too. The mist drifting over the lake at sunrise was absolutely hypnotizing. Joe showed great interest in fixing up any issues we discovered, and we had no problems with payment/deposit/etc. Be sure to ask him about local restaurants, attractions, etc. A much-needed weekend for us all - we're hoping to make this an annual thing."

"This was our first "whole Family" vacation. (Kids ans grandkids) Everyone loved the house and the boathouse. The house contained plenty of room for everyone to do their thing. The boathouse was wonderful. We sent the majority of our days down by the water. The view of the house was breathtaking. The home was just as described and The owners were great to work with and very friendly. We will most definitely tell others of this home."
