Lake Gaston gem
"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."

"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!"

"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 just returned from a week on Lake Gaston and had a wonderful time. Lake Gaston Cottage is on a perfect spot on the lake, it is down a really nice cove where is is quite and the water is always calm. The deck on the back of the house is heaven! You have sun if you want it but you also have shade with a ceiling fan. I spent my entire time outside. The house has everything you need and the owners are great to work with. If we ever go back we will spend our time at the cottage again."
