"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."

Great Place! The property and owner are fantastic!!!
"I stayed for 2 weeks with my shephard mix Bo. The owner Debbie was extremely accomodating and the grounds were large and quiet. Very close to all restaurants and shopping but tucked away. Will definitely come back."

"Our family stayed at this wonderful house for our 2014 summer vacation and a great time was had by all! The house was spacious and clean! The beds were so comfortable! Laundry facilities terrific! Everyone enjoyed swimming in the pool and taking our boats out and swimming in the lake! A particular highlight was jumping off the platform into the lake!! Tony couldn't be more helpful and was a pleasure to deal with both before and during our stay. We loved the new firepit overlooking the lake! Thank you Tony! It really was a super house for our family to spend wonderful quality family time together!!"
