Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Greg and Debbie Dragos bought this vacation home in 2001 as a place our family could meet for family reunions. We totally renovated our 'gaston getaway' in 2008 and added 1000 square feet of kitchen, dining room, and master bedroom space. Debbie and I have our professions in nursing and teaching respectively. We love the ambiance of Lake Gaston and we think you will as well. We are now both officially retired but will continue to rent our "GASTON GETAWAY" on a limited basis.

Why the Owner Chose Littleton, NC, USA:
We are in a large yet protected cove just a minute or two from the main lake and within a mile , by boat , of Morningstar Marina and The Pointe restaurant. "The Pointe" since 2014 features DJ's as well as live bands 2 - 3 nights a week from May thru September. The music accommodates a variety of musical appetites.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
OUR GREAT VIEW, WOODED LOT, FIRE PIT & LARGE DECK, YET COVE PROTECTED PROPERTY, LEADS TO A RELAXING AMBIANCE FOR SURE. OUR HUGE FULLY STOCKED GRANITE COUNTER TOPPED KITCHEN LEADS TO A CHEFS DELIGHT TO PREPARE FAMILY FEASTS.
