About The Owner

This lake has so much too offer. 36 miles long, so many great fishing spots and swimming spots. Wakeboard watching is one of our favorite activities. After a day on the lake we relax at the house, which is somewhat private and very far from any cities, which is what we enjoy most.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lake Gaston

The lake is my retreat from city life and it is a wonderful place to relax.

What makes this house unique

Pontoon boat and community pool and a beautiful lake in a semi secluded setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved that the place felt like home. Clean and comfortable and everything we needed to make our meals. We used both grills. Boating on this lake is amazing.

The pontoon fit out party of 8 perfectly. Thanks Lisa and Charlie!

Had a great time. There is a great spot to dock your boat. The lake is calm and great for tubing, skiing, swimming, fishing or whatever. If you take your boat out past the marina and the lake opens up and is very nice.

In the yard there is a picnic table by the lake, A sweet fire pit, and plenty of room to throw a frisbee, and pitch tents. It was nice fishing off of the dock. The back deck is a nice chill spot. There is a propane grill that I used a bunch, I did notice there was a charcoal grill under the deck that you could use.

Alltel and Verizon did not work well in the house. I could get a text here and there but I would have to go out on the boat or drive up the street to make a call. Sprint did work in the house. I am not sure about other cell phone providers.

I would recommend bringing food and supplies when you arrive. There is a marina, a few gas stations and Americamps nearby but I did not notice a grocery store nearby (but i may be wrong).

I did not spend much time in the house. Bring VHS tapes to watch or bring a TV. there is a DVD player but the TV is older and they were not compatible. I was fine with the linens and the pots, pans, plates, etc.

Owner's Response: TV's and DVD upgrade in 2011, cell service is still a little rocky in 2014. there is a new Dollar General in 2013 which is great if you forgot to pack something as well as a nice country store called JB Jones with a bakery that is very close by!

The house is warm and welcoming. The 4 bedrooms are beautifully furnished, the beds so comfortable! We especially loved sitting on the huge covered deck off the living room. It feels as if you are in a tree house. There is ample storage and everything one could need is provided. There are two large cleverly done bathrooms with awesome showers. We were thrilled that use of pontoon boats was included in the package We enjoyed fun times on the gorgeous lake. The yard that leads to the lake has Been artistically landscaped with a fire pit and a cement walk all the way to the boat dock. There is even a little patio sitting area in the front.We were extremely pleased and satisfied with the home and boat! We will definitely book this property again!

lake house pit stop

  • 4 of 5

6 nights lake vacation on our way from New York to North Carolina driving our son back to school, 7 of us, plenty of room, spacious and comfortable, lake is huge, water is warm, tons of fish - not much around but we are all about home cooking and BBQ and the house is well equipped for that, only neg. was the lack of phone reception ( did not bother me t all but the kids where going crazy without their phone ) we will be back, using the boat was a great replacement to the phone reception as we spent hours on and in the water vs. internet surfing - the is a hot spot internet service in the house. thanks Lisa.

gaston getaway

  • 4 of 5

Place was very neat and cozy. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils. The back porch was amazing to drink coffee in the morning and play games at night. The pontoon boat was a extra bonus that we used everyday. The place is very private and we felt like we had the cove to ourselves. We grilled on the back porch and had many laughs and made everlasting memories. Would recommend this place as a kick back and relaxing vacation. Cant wait to go back next year

Great Property For Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed the property and all its amenities. The usage of the boats and access to the lake was amazing. We spent most of the time outside on the patio enjoying family time. The home was cozy, clean and inviting. I will most definitely recommend this property to friends and family!
