Why Vicki Daltorio chose Macon
Privacy -Full acre wooded lot with vacant wood lot to the west. Not a rental! - You'll quickly see this is a second home with quality throughout, we just happen to rent on a limited basis. Sun sets - Top of the boathouse allows not only 10+ jumps into the lake but also best views of sunsets Fishing - No need to travel...fish right of the dock and catch over 10 different species of fish Swimming - great location and deep clean water with very little boat traffic close to home. Fun X5 - The new Aqua Trampoline with slide & log are best on the lake and anchored just 50 feet of our dock Location - Best location on the lake just minutes from restaurants, bars, marinas etc. by boat or by land. Optional - Best boat available on lake gaston. Rent a brand new (2015) tritoon with 200 hp and tons of upgrades ($77k boat) vs. beat up rentals. When renting from MacDaddy or our home ask about how to get a free sea doo for the week.
What makes this House unique
When you take a vacation at a lake, it is very different from a typical beach vacation. We own investment properties at the beach, but our best memories and vacations have all been at Lake Gaston. A few helpful hints to remember: On the ocean, all homes have beautiful views. On the lake, not all views are created equal. The south side of the lake has tremendous sunset views. The Main Lake views are a must on vacation vs. being tucked away in a small or shallow water cove. Fortunately for us, our home offers the best of all of these options, and our previous renters whole-heartedly agree!

Perfect main lake home for our family. Be sure to rent a boat. It’s the best way to see the lake!
Lake Life - in style
We had a group of 4 family’s (7 kids) stay a long weekend for the start of Spring Break. We had a blast despite a big storm and on and off rain! This was Masters weekend, so the large flatscreen in the boathouse was choice! Because the water temps were upper 60s, we made sure the kids had wetsuits, which they wore the whole time (even in the hot tub). They were so busy with fishing, jumping off the top of the boathouse, tubing behind the boat we brought, paddle boarding, hot tub chilling and ping pong, they had no issues with the wheather. The family’s had ample space: the larger family took the whole upstairs, the smaller family took the master, and the two families of 4 took the basesment rooms (each with two doubles, bunk beds and bathrooms). The kitchen was well equipped and the decks were among our favorite hang out spots. Watching the sunsets from the top of the boathouse was perfect. General notes: April is pollen season (it’s everywhere, including coating the water.) Water is cold, and weather is unpredictable. But lake is more serine and boat traffic is nonexistent. Must bring your own (or rent) boat. It was confusing if the paddle boards were a part of the rental or not. If not, I’d bring other water toys this time of year (Mid May is when they set up the water tramp/swim platform). This house has large flat screens overlooking the firepit, hot tub, Boathouse and in basement. Serious money was put into the A/V in this house. We had a couple of technological glitches but nothing that slowed us down. Was easily able to put in the boat but storing the trailer was not easy (or alternative parking elsewhere not obvious) at the house as no parking except on circular driveway. 1.5 hours from Raleigh. But bring everything you need as getting to a store is a pain...easier by boat in fact. Hot tub (very nice) worked 90% of our stay, got glitchy on last day. Firepit was great stocked with wood.
Overall I highly recommend staying here and with the right gear and mindset, staying here “off season” is still a great experience! Thank you for sharing your home with us and we hope we can come back again soon! -Jamie
Relaxing Spring Getaway
The house was perfect for our group of 8 ladies to get away and relax for a long weekend. Although it was blustery Spring weather we stayed cozy by the fire inside. The kitchen is perfect for preparing and enjoying gourmet meals. The house is beautifully decorated and the view was terrific.
Beautiful home and wonderful view of the lake and sunset.
Favorite home away from home on LG!!
Wonderful place, couldn’t be better, thank you!
Had a great trip with the family!!! Awesome house, very well kept!
Thank you so much for a great place! We loved our vacation. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The lake views and the hot tub were amazing. We enjoyed the outdoor seating and the fire pit. Definitely would come back!
“Summer Place” boasts a full 1 acre homesite and is located in private gated community of Harbor Landing. Harbor Landing is one of the very few sub-divisions on Lake Gaston that has its own private boat launch, making getting your boat in and out of the water easier than ever. This home is located on the coveted “Main Lake” with incredible main lake views. Its perfect location gives the best views of evening sunsets. When looking at a map of Lake Gaston, “Summer Place” is located on the SW Quad of the lake at main lake mile marker #14.
Bonus: Wooded homesite on one side of this beautiful main lake home is vacant adding greatly to your privacy and enjoyment of a lake vacation.
Other Activities: Boating, wildlife viewing, mini golf, and kayaking.
