Home Location on Lake Gaston

“Mac Daddy Home” boasts a nearly 2 acre homesite and you know you’re in for something special right away as you enter via the 500 foot tree-lined driveway and just say, “Wow!” when you come upon the home.

Protected perfectly from main lake traffic by a big, beautiful cove large enough to ski on and less than a one minute boat ride from main lake action as well. When looking at a map of Lake Gaston “Mac Daddy Home” is located on the SE Quad of the lake around from mile marker 4 near the famous 'Goat Island'.

Bonus: Located just 10 miles from I-95 off the Roanoke Rapids exit make its location very easy access from both North & South vacationers.

About Vicki Daltorio

Originally from Pittsburgh, PA but now residing in Cary, NC...Vicki & Chris have 5 kids and love vacationing at Lake Gaston. However, their favorite vacation of all time was in 2010 to Africa. We can't find any lions or leopards at Lake Gaston!

Family update--Our family has now expanded to include one daughter-in-law, two grandsons and one granddaughter!

Vicki Daltorio purchased this house in 2010

Why Vicki Daltorio chose Littleton

We have another home on Lake Gaston (Summer Place), and while we do rent it out on occasion as well, we wanted the largest vacation home on the lake to apply our business plan to.

Real simple, give large families and corporate customers a place to come and enjoy and not feel like their in a 'rental' type of home.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like staying at the MacDaddy on Lake Gaston. It's simply the best on the lake. It is constantly upgraded each and every month based on needs of guests.

Beautiful home! Great for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the home for a women's empowerment retreat and the home was amazing! I would highly recommend! The communication with the owner was great and she was SUPER helpful. The home has more than enough space. We had a large group and never felt like we were on top of each other. Looking forward to renting again!

Top notch. One of the best rentals ever. The owners have thought of everything. Perfect place for our family vacation, ages 10 to 80. Something for everyone. The house set up is fantastic with enough room for 20+. The kitchens are stocked with everything you will need. Wonderful rocking chairs with great views. Basement is a teenagers dream. The pool and hot tub were used by all. There are no words for the outside living room on the dock! Paddle boards, kayaks, huge inflatable in the lake to hang out. The owners and house manager are so easy to work with and reply right away. Do not hesitate to rent this outstanding home on Lake Gaston!

Best vacation house our group has ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

The Macdaddy house was the perfect house for our group of 21 plus a handful of toddlers. Ample space for relaxing, hanging out and enjoying the view...but the common areas were all large enough for the entire group to enjoy together. Between the incredible boat house, the resort-like pool and the top notch inside, we can’t recommend this enough. Highly recommend renting the boat along with the house, just adds a whole new dimension. There’s not much to do around the area, so you’re coming for the house and the lake! The Pointe is a great boat up (or drive) casual bar/grill about 15 minutes away. Rent this house and you won’t be sorry!

Wonderful Retreat/Vacation Property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a women's weekend retreat. Aside from the fact that the elevator was out of commission (we had a couple of women who had bad knees and we had to carry a lot of food up to the top floor so having the elevator was a plus for us; however, we didn't let this keep us from having the best time ever!) this house was the absolute perfect house for us. We loved having a kitchen on every floor to make coffee in the mornings and store snacks. The rooms are spacious and the house is large enough that it didn't feel like 27 women were occupying the house. The top floor living space was perfect for our group sessions and Bible study, as well as for serving all our meals. The balconies with their rocking chairs and lounge chairs were perfect for relaxing and talking with old friends and new. We made good use of the pool table, the hot tub, and the fire pit, as well as the boat deck. I think this was our favorite spot for gathering and relaxing as the weather was just wonderful. We kayaked and even tried the paddle boards during our free time. The back lawn is beautiful and cozy with a great deal of privacy even though there are other houses on both sides. The MacDaddy House sits on a little cove or inlet with a perfect view of the sunrise. We loved our stay. I would highly recommend this property for your vacation. Unless we think we really need an elevator, we're even thinking about booking again for next April!!

Great for All!

  • 5 of 5

We had family ranging from 6 months to 80 years of age and everyone had a great time! We blinked and our time there was over. I would definitely suggest spending the entire 7 days. We had so much more we wanted to do. The house is extremely big and beautiful and everyone had plenty of room. We will definitely consider coming again. Thank you!

Great house for large families or groups; has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house with ample room for your large family, multiple families, or big group. There are separate living areas and kitchens on each of the 3 floors, so ample room for subgroups to spread out and have their own space. Pool table, hot tub, ping pong, and pool means there's lots to do. Owners are great to work with, and the location is perfect if you're trying to accommodate people from the Triangle/Triad as well as folks from Richmond/DC.
