About Joelle Ray

Jack and I started visiting Lake Gaston many years ago guests of our good friends. We fell in love our very first visit and knew that a home there would be our dream to fulfill. Each and every season features another beautiful aspect of nature to enjoy. We've enjoyed so many great family fun memories.

Joelle Ray purchased this house in 2009

Why Joelle Ray chose Littleton

We chose to buy this beautiful home due to its layout and its charm. Casa de Lago is nestled in the woods with a fantastic view of the lake. The home lends itself to large family and friend gatherings as well as many areas to slip away for solitude.

What makes this house unique

The home has a completed downstairs that is perfect for children and teens. It features a computer area, video games, game table, pool table/ ping pong and shuffle board. The master is private and spacious with a jacuzzi tub. The main floor is perfect for entertaining and the kitchen is stocked with a gourmet chef in mind.

Great wading area near the water with easy access to ankle deep water for the little ones.

Be prepared to not get your security deposit back

  • 1 of 5

We rented the property for a weekend. We got to the property late in the night and there was nobody to walk us through the propert and check that all the things provided to us were in great condition. When we got to the property at night, it was very dark and it was impossible to inspect the property. We noticed the glass damage on one of the door in the basement from outside next morning. We reported the damage to the owner after we checked out thinking that owner should have already known about it. But the owner refused to take any responsibility and blamed the damage on us. We did not receive our security deposit back. I usually don't write reviews, but I just wanted to post this so that nobody gets tricked into fixing the damages that they weren't responsible for. If you do decide to rent this property, make sure to inspect it yourself and contact the owner right away if you don't want to be taken advantage of.

Owner's Response: Our home is inspected before each arrival and no damage was reported by this renter. It was only after my team reported the damage was there any mention of damage by this renter. We do ask for each person renting to inspect the home and immediately report any damage and that did not happen with this renter. We are fair people and appreciate everyone who has rented throughout the years and their honesty. After repair was completed the remainder of the security deposit was returned. I was able to replace just the glass window of the door saving a significant amount in terms of cost.

Exceeded our expectations and simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things and the attention to what would be needed with 12 people in a vacation house. First of all, the furniture is very nice and very well thought out. The kitchen is absolutely stocked with TONS of dishes and silverware, utensils. Huge refrigerator, great dishwasher, and plenty of chairs. Screened in porch was so great and 2 decks were wonderful. 2 queen beds, and 1 king mattresses were great. Everything seems to be very new and well maintained. Great gas grill on the house deck. Foosball, shuffleboard, board games, Wii, and Cornhole were provided! Grocery store, hardware store and other shopping is so convenient to home as well.

Beautiful Home With All the Amenities You Could Need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Memorial Day and truly enjoyed this lakefront home. It is beautifully decorated and had a great layout for a family with teens or multi-family. The kitchen was nicely appointed and we found everything we needed. The screened porch off of the kitchen was the perfect place to unwind in the evenings. The downstairs area was perfect for our group of teens who really enjoyed having their own space and their own access down to the dock for late night fishing and morning kayaking. The upstairs with two queen rooms and a bath was very private and would be great if you had more than one family staying there.

The dock was very nice and easy to walk down to There was plenty of space to fish or sunbathe. The house is on a quiet part of the lake and you don't get a lot of traffic as far as noisy boats. Kids can walk right into the water from the shoreline or jump in off the dock. Floats, kayaks and inner tubes were provided.

The owners are lovely. We had a small issue with the air conditioning while we were there, but they took care of it right away and were sincerely apologetic about it. I would not hesitate to rent this home again.

Nice home

  • 3 of 5

The location is perfect, close to Food Lion. The home is lovely and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well equipped. As far as sleeping, the master suite was comfortable but the other beds not as comfy. The sofa bed was broken when we arrived so my niece and her fiance slept terrible. Thank goodness my kids had their sleeping bags as they needed the extra cushion on the bunk beds.

We had several issues while staying at Casa De Lago. The first was the washing machine. The utility room flooded with the 1st use of the washing machine. We had to bail that out, clean up and then do extra laundry because of the water coming from the hoses. The second was when it rained hard, water was coming through the recess light in the kitchen which was kind of scary as an electrical fire could have easily happened. The third issue was the septic system. Roto Rooter was there for over a half a day, in and out of the third floor and at times we could not flush the toilet. Other than the issues mentioned it was an enjoyable vacation. Also, if you plan to trailer your boat please note that the driveway is narrow. We had to park at the top of the driveway.

Owner's Response: We certainly apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your stay. We do have times where we must take action to fix a problem as soon as it is reported which is what we experienced with the drain issue. We did everything we could in a very timely manner to rectify the matter as soon as it was reported as an issue hence, the Rooter Rooter workmen onsite. We have made every repair necessary to our home and replaced mattresses. Thank you for you feedback and again, we apologize for the issue.

Perfect Setup for medium to large groups

  • 5 of 5

Great place that I would strongly recommend to people visiting Lake Gaston

Pros:

• Very well-kept property

• Beds slept well

• Lots of amenities (shuffleboard, kayaks, great multi-level pier overlooking the water, etc.)

• Bedrooms on 3 floors w/ bathrooms on each floor to minimize having to share

• Close proximity to Food Lion

Con:

• Only 1 key, so we had to coordinate across the folks staying with us as everyone came and went

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home, filled with many great amenities! We can't say enough good things about this vacation home! From the minute we stepped into the house, we felt like it was a home away from home, both warm and inviting. It will definitely be a summer to remember. The weather was perfect, the house was awesome and the kayaks were a blast! We will definitely consider coming back to this home next year!
