Property description

The name of our house is 'Dream Come True' and it has truly been a dream. Our home can make your dreams come true too! Bring your family and friends for a relaxing vacation on Lake Gaston. Our home is located in the very popular “Pea Hill Creek” area. We have all the comforts of home and a wonderful lake in the backyard. The gently sloping yard takes you to the waters edge and boat house. There is a vacant slip in the boathouse to tie up your boat (slip without a boat-lift).

We have a small floating ramp/dock that is a safe place to dock your jet skis as well. (When it is not being used for jet skis, it is fun to watch turtles and ducks sun themselves on the ramp.) Additionally there is a private boat ramp/launch in the neighborhood for your 'private' use only. The water at our Pier is about eight feet deep at the end of the pier gently sloping back to a few inches of water at the shoreline.

The house is 2500 square feet and has five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two full kitchens. High speed wireless internet is available.

Location

View Guide powered by:

Car: Necessary

The map marker here appears to show the house off the water. THIS IS A WATER FRONT HOME. The water is less than 50 feet from the house.

Lake Gaston is 20,300 acres of clear, blue, fresh water; 34 miles long with 350 miles of shoreline. The scenic beauty of the lake with its relaxing atmosphere and the traditional hospitality of the people creates the desire to return again and again.

Boating is a never ending delight on this beautiful lake. That is not an accident. The entire lake bottom was completely cleared before the lake was flooded to insure a high degree of boating safety. No wonder, then, that Lake Gaston is considered one of the best lakes on the east coast.

The water of Lake Gaston is officially classified A-2, the highest category found in the eastern USA. Water Level is consistent. Under normal conditions, it will vary less than one foot.

Long Season - Normal temperatures allow water sports from May through September. Marinas offer year round fishing and boat services.

Fishing goes on all year long on fabulous Lake Gaston. Striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, channel catfish, brim and many other fish are caught in abundance. Virginia and North Carolina Wildlife Commissions stock the lake.

If some members of your family feel left out because they don't fish or ski, there is a lot more to do during your vacation. We have some videos, DVDs, and books to use while on vacation. The back yard facing the water is large and flat - great for playing ball.

Our house is set back from the main cove so your whole family can enjoy swimming and playing near our boat house without fear of heavy wakes or careless boaters ruining your day. Your family will also enjoy hanging out on our spacious deck. There they will find a good place to read or talk - maybe take in a little sun. In the evenings, the fire-pit near the shore is a great place to gather and roast marshmallows.

If your non-water people want more to do, they can make a short trip to Roanoke Rapids for shopping, movies and other entertainment. The quaint town of Warrenton has a nice historic district with antique shops and other points of interest. You can take a tour of Rosemont Winery and Art Gallery which is about 15 miles west of the house.

There are a variety of activities that can be enjoyed around the lake. You can go to the flea market on the weekends or play putt-putt golf. The area also has several golf courses available.
