About Bill Connell

Bill, Audrey, Julia(14) and Jeff (12) live in Cary, NC outside of Raleigh. We love all kinds of outdoor activities, but lake activities are by far our favorite! After 10 years of towing our boat from Raleigh to Lake Gaston and dreaming about owning a place here one day, this year we made our dream a reality! We hope you enjoy the house as much as we do!

Why Bill Connell chose Olde Ferry Estates

This property has all of the luxury amenities you deserve on your vacation. The home is big enough to share with another family or two and you can bring your own boat or rent ours. The dock is perfect for jumping in the 10 ft+ of water for the kids or just sunbathing for the adults. All of the kids can easily be seen from the house deck while they are playing. The water at the dock is calm for docking the boat, swimming, and fishing but yet the main lake is right around the corner! The focal point of Lake Gaston, Eaton Ferry Bridge, is right around the corner about 0.5 miles by boat where you can visit marinas or restaurants by boat. Enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Large Luxury home with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Beautiful views of the lake from the house and deck. Outdoor shower, beautiful hard-scaped path to the dock including a fire pit! Double dock has plenty of boat parking. On top is an expansive sun deck with jump gate for kids and sunbathing for adults while enjoying gorgeous views of the main lake seconds away!
