About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Whether boating, fishing, swimming, or just relaxing under a Carolina blue sky, you will enjoy your vacation in this immaculately furnished waterfront home on beautiful Lake Gaston.

Relax in this open floor plan home with three bedrooms (2 queens & 2 sets of bunk beds) and 3.5 baths. Each room is its own suite. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for preparing simple or sophisticated meals with a large dining table to serve your family and guests. The living area has a comfortable sofa, love seat, and chair with a flat screen TV (Prism TV), DVD player, CD stereo, MP3/IPod docking station, and WiFi for your computer. Both kids and adults will enjoy an XBox 360 and PS2 with games, a large selection of DVD movies, music CD's, board games, puzzles and an extensive lending library of books. The view from the living area and spacious screened in porch is spectacular. The master bedroom has a separate entrance onto the screened porch.

The boathouse/dock has both sun and covered decking with chaise lounge chairs and a picnic table. Tie up cleats are provided to easily secure your watercraft to the dock (lift/slip unavailable). You will have access to the community boat ramp for your convenience. Lazily float on a raft while the kids jump off of the dock and swim in this protected inlet that is only feet from the main cove away from any boat traffic. Enjoy taking the 4 kayaks out for a peaceful, early morning nature tour around the cove. For the more competitive at heart, a horseshoe, corn hole or darts challenge may be in order. Or, just relax in the backyard hammock or swing overlooking the water after a busy day on the lake.

This home is truly 'Simply Charming'.

A grocery store, drug store, hardware store, and restaurants are located close by.

Located in the North West quadrant of Lake Gaston.

About Mike Andrews

We are the Andrews' family and our cottage on beautiful Lake Gaston is our dream come true.

Mike Andrews purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mike Andrews chose Littleton

We have been coming up to Lake Gaston from Raleigh for 10+ years. Our neighbors in Raleigh have owned a home on the lake since we moved to Raleigh. They were always so generous with their invites to join them at their lake home several times a year. We fell in love with the area. In 2006, we started looking for a place of our own and 'Simply Charming' found us. We are delighted to share it with you.

What makes this cottage unique

This is our oasis away from the craziness of everyday life (work, school, homework, yard work, etc...). When we pull into the driveway, the stress melts away. It is so beautiful, peaceful, and fun. Enjoying a cup of coffee on the screened in porch early in the morning before a day full of swimming, fishing, boating, and relaxing is one of our very favorite things. The sun twinkling on the water is magical.

Great house, very well furnished and equipped for fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful reunion for 3 families over New Years at this house - and it was perfect! Despite it being winter, we had plenty of entertainment (fishing, tether ball, board games, afternoon visits to Warrenton, Littleton, and Macon's grave), a great view of the lake, and even a bottle of wine upon arrival! The house is beautiful- the kitchen is set up so you can be cooking or cleaning and still part of the action in the living room. We highly recommend it!

Ideal peaceful retreat .. many thoughtful touches

  • 5 of 5

This house has such an ideal location and floorplan. We enjoyed the wonderful screened porch and deck and had great family games and meals in the open plan. There are so many tasteful appointments in this home that we enjoyed. The house and lot are lovingly cared for and we enjoyed the decor as well. We kayaked and swam and played many games and enjoyed the the wifi and xbox and playstation. The 3+ bathrooms were also wonderful. We loved this home away from home!! Kudos to the owners for an ideal vacation getaway!!

Great House - well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a weekend at Lake Gaston for the first time. We cooked at home both nights and the house is well appointed with utensils, cooking dishes and the grill to help make our stay very comfortable.

The beds are comfortable and our son loved the bunk bed.

The screened in porch is huge and we enjoyed the views of the lake from that comfortable setting.

This is a just a great house - allowing for separate areas - basement for a rec room, the screened porch, the yard, the dock, etc. to allow you to spread out, if you want to read a book or watch a movie while others in your family do something else. The lake was great - warm water and we enjoyed the kayaks and floats. We will be back and we will rent this house again! Looking forward to many more memories at Lake Gaston at "Simply Charming"

Clean, well-maintained, comfortable house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Simply Charming. The location is very peaceful, on a small quiet lake "cul-de-sac" off Songbird Creek, just a few minutes' boat ride from the main lake. The street is quiet too, and was very easy to get to. The house itself is well stocked, well maintained, well organized, very clean and very functional. Everything we needed was there, and a lot more too.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed renting this house, everything you could need is right there. We launched our boat at the community boat launch, which is right around the corner and it was super convenient. There was plenty of room for the boat at the dock and the boat traffic was non existent every time we went out to wake board or fish. The porch was really nice and the home was very clean. We easily had enough room for the 7 people in our family. This was our first time at Lake Gaston and the people in the area couldn't be nicer. We will definitely rent this house again if we decide to go back.

5th Great Year

  • 3 of 5

Another year of good memories and relaxation.Part of the fun now is reading the reviews that my grand daughter wrote.

Each year the community grows and the mini-golf was a nice addition. We always regret leaving and are already looking forward to 2016.
