If I might make one suggestion for a comfortable, leisurely week of true vacationing, which became & remains a standard tradition for us after a few visits to Lake Gaston: when several families vacation together, have each family plan, prepare & provide meals for one day; then save the leftovers for later in the week for snacking. It has worked out wonderfully well for us for years, allowing everyone to prepare & present their favorite dish or delicacy for all, while preventing unnecessary & repeat trips to the grocery store during our vacation. This allowed us all time to just have fun on the water & not even think about 'what's for dinner' or 'who's cooking?!'
For the sports enthusiast, Lake Gaston offers a wake boarding school on the lake--this may require scheduling or prior reservations (owned by none other than the infamous Adam Fields-AF Wake, Inc.); annual local area events sponsored by the Lake Gaston Regional Chamber of Commerce are sure to delight all: Memorial Day weekend brings the Battle of the BBQ at the Lake Gaston Chamber, June brings wine festivals (Rosemont Winery is approx five miles away, with wine tours, outdoor festivals & more.
In summary, the covered pavilion, conveniently accessible from the lower level floor or the front parking area sidewalk & with stairs to the main & second levels, offers comfortable seating for 20-30 people easily at the tables & the tiered bar, all while keeping all your beverages cool within an easy distance of your pool &/or lake side gatherings! This way no one has to worry about stocking the cooler & dragging it out to the pool--all with your convenience in mind! Oh yes, there is also a stereo system (compatible with most phones) located under the pavilion for radio stations &/or all your favorite tunes!
NOTE: Local and distant (live-in) Chef service is available for hire for meal preparation with advance appointment! Home owner has contact information if your party requires additional resources.
