Why Melody Hughes chose Moratuck Manor

We bought this home 10 years ago as a family vacation spot. We love the location, views and family fun it offers. The neighborhood is quiet and easy to find, right off NC 85 and 95, 10 minutes to the grocery store.

What makes this house unique

While staying at this home you can relax, fish, swim, watch birds, many boating activities and visit friends. It is close to the grocery store, golf, strawberry picking farms, flee market and restaurants.

Beautiful home, in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home during the winter and had a peaceful time. The home met all our needs and was perfect for our big group. The downstairs served as a great hang out for the kids and the deck allowed us to enjoy the lake and peace and quiet in the evening. Melody was wonderful and made herself available the whole time we were staying there.

This was our first time at Lake Gaston and it was incredible. The house is fully equipped and laid out very comfortably for large groups with 4 full bathrooms. Everything was as described and very clean.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this house. 4 adults and 5 kids and we had plenty of room. It was great for all ages of kids as we had a 5 year old to an 18 year old. Loved the boat lift. We enjoyed many nights on the boat deck. Lots of steps leading to the water. Wasn't a problem for our family, but may be an issue for some. Owners met us at the house, showed us around, gave us some fresh vegetables - great service. Would highly recommend this house!

Lake Livin'

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lake Gaston. This house was clean, updated and very well appointed. We loved canoeing on the lake daily and grilling on the outdoor grill. Located in a neighborhood, and situated very close to neighbors, we found this house lacked privacy and a little bit of the "quaint factor" that some of the other houses on the lake provide. However, there are many other features that make this house great. Case in point, the views from the dock were amazing and a great place to have a meal. We also enjoyed the close proximity to the grocery store and marina. The owner was very responsive and efficient. It would go a long way to update the payment options to include electronic payments via VRBO or PayPal perhaps. All in all though, a lovely, lovely experience! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Angela, Your right about the payment options. I am going to review the PayPal option, hoping the fees are not as high as the credit card. Thank you!
