About Bill

This property is where our family and close friends spend our spring and summer vacations. Many happy memories have been created and many more will be added. We enjoy this beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped home at all times of the year. We especially love sitting on the dock & enjoying the lake in the spring, summer & fall! The water is so clean & welcoming for swimming & boating. We take great pride in our home and keep it very well maintained.

We welcome you to rent our home and create wonderful memories with your family and friends!

Bill purchased this house in 1990

Why Bill chose Littleton

We visited Lake Gaston several years ago & instantly fell in love with this beautiful lake. The water is so clean & refreshing and it is the perfect place to go boating, swimming & fishing. The lake is relatively quiet and very peaceful. We enjoy traveling the lake by boat, swimming off our dock or in the middle of the lake and sitting on the dock enjoying the view and boats traveling by the cove. It was the perfect place for our children to learn how to tube, water ski, knee board and wake board.

What makes this house unique

This home is located on the lake in a wide, well maintained cove right off the main lake. Swimming off the dock is just perfect and the main lake is visible form the house and the dock. The house is so comfortable and has the amenities to create a feeling of being at home. The water feels so wonderful; floating on a raft and watching the 'world go by' is heavenly. We love to take the boat to the main lake after dinner and watch the sun set. In the winter the sunset can be viewed from the dock.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing Lake house

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 stayed at this amazing house for Spring Break. The house was very well kept and stocked! The dock was a huge hit for everyone! Many hours of fishing on that dock! Lots of room for everyone, the table in the sunroom is great for groups, lots of room!

We will definitely be back this Spring Break!

Wonderful home and owners

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us ages 74-10 just spent a delightful week in this lovely home. The owners have spared no expense in keeping the home updated, clean and well stocked. They provide a pedal boat, chairs for the dock, and lots of information on the location - where to go and what to do. We loved diving and fishing off the dock - not at the same time. We caught catfish, small fry, and ta da....4 large mouth bass. We threw all but one back and had the nicest guy in world clean and debone one of the bass for us. We highly recommend renting a pontoon boat from Timber Lodge. Mike and Tyler are so nice and Mike is the guy who knows how to clean fish. We got two nice size filets from 3.5 lb bass and they were delicious. The home's location is pretty central to what you need. Taking garbage and recycling to a dump is inconvenient but I guess pretty standard for that setting. The DSL worked fine but we were in one of the few spots left in the country where you cannot call or text from your cell phone. I loved it but some of my group went through withdrawal. There is a sunroom that is perfect for family dining and playing Texas Hold'em, A cocktail table on which we did 2 puzzles, and a kitchen table that we used for cards and games. We didn't try any of the nearby restaurants because the online reviews weren't flattering. We loved Hwy 55 burgers though. The grill works as do all the kitchen appliances. We recommend Paradise on Lake Gaston to all who want a wonderful get-away place.

Paradise on Lake Gaston

  • 5 of 5

We were there over the weekend and it was a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and very well stocked with everything you need. Plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The two level dock was also great. There was plenty of room for fishing and laying out. The walkway made it easy access and you didn't have to climb a steep hill to get back from the water. I caught a 9lb 7 oz catfish right off the dock shortly after we arrived. That caused a lot of excitement. It is a very quite area in a cove right off the main lake and very convenient to everything we needed. A Food Lion is just a few miles down the road. We will definitely be renting this one again in the future. The best we have ever rented at Lake Gaston over the years.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week-end here, except that it wasn't long enough! It is a wonderful home with a spacious sun-room. The kitchen is complete with all appliances and every gadget you could possibly need. It even has a Pampered Chef apple corer!! The dock & boathouse were perfect for swimming and fishing. It is at a great location on the lake, and we hope to return next year for a week. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful get-away with others.

Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

This house really was a fantastic choice for our vacation. We had 7 adults and 3 kids and it never felt cramped! The cove could not have deen better...very little boat traffic so the boys were able to jump off the diving board as well as the second story dock about a million times! We caught lots of fish, including 2 large catfish and a really nice bass! The paddleboat was used often and was a great amenity. Overall it was a really nice stay!

Pros: the kitchen is stocked better than mine at home and the items in it are high quality; the beds are incredibly comfortable; only 6 or 7 minutes to the store/gas station/pizza shop; the dock is spacious enough for everyone even while the kids are jumping off of it; the storage shed on the dock was such a fantastic idea...it made for the perfect place to throw things in the evening without having to lug anything up to the house; the hammock....LOVED the hammock; the owners - Bill answered all of my questions prior to booking very quickly. We had an issue with the Internet and Bill called multiple times to help resolve the issue and to follow up to make sure it was fixed.

Cons: it would be really nice to have some large umbrellas on the dock as there isn't any shade once it gets past noon; it would be nice to have the use of one of the jet ski lifts. Although the cove is a no wake zone, not everyone honors that and you get lots of residual wake from the main lake, so the jet ski often rubbed and bumped the dock when tied up to it; it would be nice if the check-in time could be an hour or two earlier...I felt like by the time we unloaded the cars it was dinner time and there was really no lake time the first day.

Overall the stay was fantastic and I would highly recommend this house to anyone!! Thanks for sharing your house with us!

Great Cove and Location on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This house had the best cove and swimming area of all the houses I have stayed in since I started vacationing on Lake Gaston. The location is great and the house was very comfortable. My group made up of family and friends had a wonderful time and would easily choose this home again.
