About Jackie Halls, Property Manager

About the owner: After living near the ocean in the Myrtle Beach area, it is wonderful to swim in a freshwater lake. No sand, no hurricanes, no traffic, the life is easy and the climate mild. Plus, there aren't any alligators in the water!

Jackie Halls, Property Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Jackie Halls, Property Manager chose Quail Ridge

Lake Gaston is a well kept secret. When traveling on I-85, one crosses the lake at an unscenic location. When one is traveling on I-95, there is no hint that a gorgeous lake is just to the west. Even within North Carolina, people do not know about Lake Gaston. It is a pleasure living here and enjoying the perfect climate.

A unique destination is the Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park, 4963 Hwy 258 Scotland Neck, NC. There are waterfowl from every continent at this park. It is an hour from the house, but well worth the visit (

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our second year here at Lakeside Leisure and we had a wonderful time! We shared the week with family & friends enjoying the water for tubing, knee boarding, wake boarding, swimming and fishing. We have been coming to Lake Gaston for 7 or 8 years to now & this seems to be the most accommodating one so far. You've thought of just about everything that a family needs to have a pleasant stay. We especially enjoyed the time we turned off the TV and played family games "Catch Phrase," a game my brother-in-law's family always brings, kept us in stitches. My daughter's boyfriend caught a 5 lb. bass & was excited! (He later left to go to a fishing tournament & he felt the fish brought him good luck.) As usual, we took the last night to eat at Watersview & watch the sun go down. Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home. We hope to continue coming to the lake & making more family memories with future "children," in-laws & hopefully grandchildren. May god Bless You all.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 4 of 5

The perfect place and home for our family's Thanksgiving reunion! We experienced so many special moments from enjoying beautiful sunsets (from both the inside of the home to the deck) to watching our children enjoy the many games available to them. To say this home is well equipped for your needs is an understatement. We will definitely rent again and recommend to our friends!

Great Family Digs!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this house a number of times and every time has been wonderful. A thing you need to know...most important...Jackie Halls, rental agent....the best...your mother at Gaston. She communicates promptly and makes sure everything is copacetic! I can't say enough about her care and concern. She alone is reason to stay here! I come here to fish and don't make use of half the amenities, but there is fun for all. The playroom will help keep the kids busy...horseshoes...paddleboat...air out equipment...on and on. Plenty of room and bathrooms. Great kitchen. This is a can't miss house. You will have a great vacation.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for the family reunion. We had 4 families staying here. 8 adults and 3 little ones. There was plenty of room to spread out and play. Each couple had their own room. The table sat all of us comfortably for family dinners. The cove was very quiet with not a lot of boat action to disrupt swimming and playing on the dock. The main lake was seconds away by boat for skiing, tubing, and general boating. We caught a bunch of fish off the dock and one lucky 3 yr old caught her first fish. We brought 2 boats and had plenty of space to park the boats and still had room to use the dock. The paddle boat was fun to play with around the cove and do some fishing in. There were plenty of games in the house to keep us occupied inside as needed too.
