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:

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.
