Recent Southern Virginia reviews

  • Pictures do not do this home justice

    "We had a family gathering in the area for a wedding, and this home made a wonderful base for the California contingent. There were beds for all, but most importantly was the massive "great room" opening on to a generous screened porch overlooking the lake and huge open kitchen, with plenty of dining and lounging say nothing of the movie theatre, ping pong table, water trampoline, boat dock. Just splendid for our group - and probably yours. The owners were very accomodating and have decorated this with flair for a lakeside home."

  • Perfect Lake Retreat

    "I visited with my family at the end of August and had the best time. The house was clean, well-kept, and very cozy. I was really able to relax and unwind from the stress of work, etc. We did not want to leave! The walk to the dock was a little far but certainly worth it. The private dock in the private cove was great. We do have a boat, but even if you don't have one - the dock is still great for sunbathing, fishing, and swimming. Great view of the sunset as well. I only stayed 5 days while my mother stayed the entire week but I plan to visit again soon if I can - one of the best vacations I've had in a while!"

  • Fishing Lake Gaston

    "We had a great time fishing Lake Gaston last week. The house size and location made this house the perfect spot for our group of 7 anglers. The access from the house to the lake was easy. Our boats fit well around the boat house and lift. The accommodations matched what we were looking for in a house. Everything was clean and in good working order. Wi-Fi was a breeze. The ping pong table saw a lot of action while we were not out on the lake catching fish. Thanks Pete for a great trip!"
