"My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for our son's wedding and found it perfect in every way. We love older properties with lots of character in neighborhoods with tree lined streets. It was close to downtown, we had a Food Lion a short walk away, and a gorgeous park for our grandchildren close by as well. Upon our arrival, we found a food basket, wine, and assorted libations for our enjoyment. The kingsize bed was super comfortable and the screened in porch was great during the great fall weather. We would certainly stay here again."

"We were in Shelby for our daughters wedding at Slightly Differnt Nursery and the Nell's house was real close to the venue and a great place for family members to stay. We did not spend a lot of time there other than to sleep because of wedding responsibilities but it was extremely comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and a welcome relief after wedding activities. Norman was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed."

"We really enjoyed our week at Robyn's Nest. The location was perfect. A short boat ride to numerous restaurants and Harris Teeter a short 5 minute drive. The Weber kettle made perfect dinners each and every night. The weather was HOT so we didn't enjoy the great beach and fire pit in the evenings as much as we would have liked. Overall, everything we need in a lake house... A comfortable bed, a well stocked kitchen and a dock for the boat."

"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!"
