Property description

'This is not a rental property, this is an awesome LAKE HOME' - spring guest 2012
'Glad we paid the $300 extra vs. our old rental...no comparison' - spring guest 2010
'You and your wife thought of everything, this home is just incredible' -spring guest 2010

All the 'typical' information is listed below, however, the reason that this home was recently ranked (by far) as the #1 ranked vacation home is because of the spectacular combination of views, quality of home, quality of detail throughout the entire home. The owners spend an average of 60 nights+ per year at the home with their family and are constantly monitoring the home and adding upgrades each and every year.

We recently hired a house manager to add even more value to our valued guests. Quite simply, our job is to make "Raving Fans" out of every family that spends time in our home making memories of their own.

Recent 'extras' that have been added:
Underwater fishing lights that allow you to see the water come to life with huge fish once the sun goes down. Our kids have caught over 1,000 fish right off the boat dock over the years. From small an fish to trophy catches. 10 year old Zack has the longest fish (40' gar) and 12 year old Jake has the heaviest catch in a 40 lb catfish.

New Denon surround system on the boat house and in the main house. Control pandora or your own music from your iphone/droid with a free app.

New 65' samsung smart HDTV added to basement in 2013.

Over $75,000 of improvements have been added in past 24 months.

Bedrooms- 6 bedrooms, 5 include full baths with main lake views & 1 with private balcony

What makes Summer Place different than the other rental homes on Lake Gaston?

For several years we owned & managed dozens of beautiful homes on Lake Gaston. We successfully sold that business because it was simply too frustrating to have home owners not invest in their own home for the satisfaction of our guests. We now only own and operate the famous "MacDaddy" home on Lake Gaston and rent out Summer Place on a limited basis.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: The Daltorio's are a family of 7 who enjoy their lake home. They also offer it for rent when not able to use it due to other activites of their 5 children. Update--It is now 5 children, one daughter-in-law, one grandson and one granddaughter!

Why the Owner Chose Macon, NC, USA:
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, blob & 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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!
