Get ready for the vacation of a lifetime!! Come and enjoy one of Virginia’s and North Carolina’s best kept secrets! You can find paradise at our lake house! It is two levels and has everything you will need to make your stay at Lake Gaston an enjoyable one. We have tv, internet and DVD players (movies provided), board games, books and puzzles...everything that will provide inside entertainment for family evenings or during inclement weather.
Lake Gaston is a clear and beautiful lake located in the Piedmont of southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. It is the last major impoundment on the Roanoke River, and offers excellent water quality and water level fluctuations that are less than one foot. It is 35 miles long and has over 350 miles of shoreline. Lake Gaston is within a three hour drive of Washington DC, an hour and a half to two hours from Raleigh North Carolina and Virginia Beach Virginia.
Outside is where the real fun is! Our backyard leads right to the water and our boat dock, which is the center of lake life. The water off the dock is about 6 feet deep which is great for older kids and adults. Younger kids do well with the shallow water by the shore. Swimming, fishing, sunbathing (don’t forget the sunscreen), and relaxing all happen right there. It’s a great place to view the beautiful evening sky and sunsets. Skiing and tubing can be started right in front of the dock.
Besides the water sports, fishing is excellent at Lake Gaston! Available species include striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, perch, sunfish, and our favorite dinner fish, channel catfish. Fishing from the dock is a favorite pastime for both young and old alike. Early mornings and evenings are usually better, but when is fishing not good?
Lastly, one of the best pastimes at the lake is RELAXING! Whether it be enjoying the view, reading a book, napping in the sun, soaking in the hot tub, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit at night, or mountain biking on the nearby trails. There is something about the lake that lets you leave everyday stress behind for awhile. This is what we most enjoy about our lake house. One day of vacation and you will feel as if you've been there a week already! We invite you to come and see for yourselves.

Great house, had all we needed.. Beautiful space... Hot tub was great!!! Highly recommended..
Quiet.. Spacious and peaceful.. Great place..
Beautiful Lake Views
Had an amazing stay at Another Day in Paradise with my family. The house had plenty of space for everyone and the views off the back are amazing. We had a blast floating off the edge of the dock. Stay here if you are looking for a great place to get away and relax.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our lake home. Hope you can visit us agaIn!
Amazing Views and a great house!!
We stayed at the house with another family, all together 10 people! 4 adults and 6 teenagers! The house was great, we were able to sleep everyone comfortably, we put the kids upstairs and the adults downstairs and that worked well for us! We cooked everyday which allowed us to just spend time together. We played games both outside and inside! We enjoyed the deck and the hot tub! We used the grill daily and picked up fresh seafood for our last night there!
The house was clean and well kept, and everything we needed to cook was provided, all we had to do was supply the food!
We really enjoyed the views from the deck in the morning while we were having our coffee! We will definitely be back to enjoy another summer vacation at the lake but next time we will have a boat!!
My family enjoyed staying here. Beautiful home. Everything we expected. Great for families with children/teenagers/pets.. One of the highlights was the shallow water right before the dock where the kids and dogs played!
Great Family Vacation
We had a great family vacation. Home is beautiful and view of lake is tranquil. We all loved both jacuzzi tubs, split level bedroom plans and hot tub I think they are an added rental benefit. We were able to bring our fur baby with us and she loved being with us; as much as we loved having her. Fishing was good right off the dock. Wish there was little more to do in the area, but if you are here just to relax and take in the view, perfect place. Boat renal is a must to get in all the lake has to offer.
My family and I really enjoyed this home. It had everything we needed and more with plenty of space. Make sure you read the book when you get there and check the closet for all sorts of goodies for you to use! The house was clean, well maintained with plenty of seating space. We loved BOTH outside decks! That was our go to place for morning coffee! The cove is perfect for not wanting to be on main lake traffic and just around the corner from friends of ours. Would definitely stay again!
