"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunrise Paradise. The property was just as described. The view was spectacular and the peaceful area was just a dream. The owners were very easy to work with, and answered any questions we had. I would very much recommend this property. We came in Oct and would like to come back in the summer months so we can enjoy the beautiful lake."

"We reserved this house during November and the area couldn't have been more perfect! The house is tucked back away in a corner so it seems like you are out in the woods all alone. The color of the trees were changing making for amazing views. Not to mention the location of the house provides an awesome back yard for people who like to just sit outside and take it all in. We also rented the pontoon boat, despite the cold, and took it out for a few spins to check out the lake. The house and location provided an awesome weekend. The house itself is perfect with plenty of space to spread out, huge bathrooms, tons of sleeping areas, and the basement that has been turned into a pool/ping pong room (SO AWESOME). Flat screen TV's, smart TV downstairs that bluetooths to phones for music, gas fire place, propane grill, fire pit etc... everything needed is already there.
The owner/operator's were also a huge help, I like to have ALL my ducks in a row before taking a plunge and the owner/operator was very responsive to emails and phone calls at all times."

"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!"

"A couple of friends and I rented this home for a girls weekend away. The "cottage" is charming. Imagine Cape Cod meets rustic. We loved it! The views of the lake were gorgeous along with the sunrises each morning. The beds were comfy and since we were there to watch movies, grab a little sun and eat I would be remiss not to comment on the comfy living area which was perfect for indulging in those movies. If you have 3 or an entire family there is no problem accommodating everyone for sleeping or viewing as there are ample bedding, TV's and seating. There is an enormous 2 level dock in very good condition with plenty of chairs for just being. We enjoyed coffee on the deck and played games there as well. Now the kitchen- I love to cook and you can tell that the owner does as well. If that's your thing this going to be a treat. Caphalon pots/pans; heavy duty mixing bowls, lots of glasses..yep-it was fun. Probably one of things we enjoyed the most was that we felt like a welcome guest. We enjoyed the family photos and built our own stories around them. recipes (handwritten) in the kitchen, artwork on the walls and the whimsical kitchen/living area all testimony that this placed is beloved. Thanks so much for sharing, The Purple Pansies!"
