Overview

About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps up 16)

This is a great vacation home on the perfect Poe Creek! The house has 3 floors with great views on every floor. A renovation and addition was just completed on the house May 2016.

24 ft 2006 Bentley pontoon boat with 90 HP Mercury engine available to rent. Seats 10 adults comfortably, two captains chairs upfront as well. Local rentals charge $1400-$1550 week, this boat is available at $1,000 week and at the dock when you get there!

MAIN FLOOR is an open floor plan with a 47' LCD TV, Blu-ray player, open family room, updated kitchen, full bath and 2 bedrooms (both with queen beds). The main deck area off the house is on this floor with a 480 sq. ft. screened in porch and new gas grill.

UPSTAIRS: Has 2 bedrooms and a full bath. The master has a beautiful view of the lake with a queen bed. The other bedroom sleeps 6 in bunk beds.

BASEMENT: Has a pool table with a convertible ping pong table, large flat screen TV, blu ray DVD, large leather sectional, 2 bedrooms, full bath and the laundry room. One bedroom has a king, and the second has a queen and one bunk bed (two twins).

OUTSIDE: The backyard has a fenced in backyard which is great for young children or pets. The boat house was rebuilt in March 2017. The boat house has a covered area with two boat lifts and a slip to the side to tie up a 3rd boat or jet ski. There are 3 kayaks. The boat lift and kayaks are availble for use. The main deck on the lower level is spacious and has a covered picnic table, swing, as well as a diving board. The swimming area is private and protected from boats by the neighboring property. Water depth at the end of the dock is 12 feet.

There are 2 marinas on the lake for gas, good food and boat rentals. This house is honestly one of the best coves on the lake!

The boat ramp is about 7 miles away from house. Take highway 158 toward Roanoke Rapids. Turn left onto Myrick Estates Rd and then right on Bluebird Rd which will take you to the ramp.

We are excited to be able to give 100% of all of our rental revenue from this lake house to the Mabopane Foundation. Mabopane is a Christian orphanage in South Africa that provides excellent care for the orphaned, abandoned, abused or otherwise disadvantaged children in the area. Our daughter had the opportunity to volunteer there during the summer of 2013. All amounts that you give to us (except for taxes and cleaning) will go to providing care at the orphanage. Thank you!

About Jamie Bentley

We are the parents of 5 and the grandparents of 3. We love our getaways to Lake Gaston and enjoy the water at all times of the day. This home holds a special place in our hearts with many great memories. Definitely one of the greatest parts of our lakehouse is the water. It is 12 feet deep at the end of our dock and our cove is great for waterskiing or heading out to the main lake for waves for tubing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Jamie Bentley purchased this house in 2000

Why Jamie Bentley chose Lake Gaston

The home sold us on the location and the great views from each floor! We can't say it enough, Poe Creek is the best cove on the lake! It is ideal to be able to swim and boat right off the dock. It is amazing to relax on one of the many decks and just watch the day go by and the sunset, it is truly a getaway!

What makes this house unique

One of the best things about this house is how it feels like a home. It is the perfect getaway for you or your whole family. You will not be disappointed!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family and kids spent a week at this house and we had everything that we needed and more! The shaded dock in the morning was very nice and we enjoyed coffee on the top deck. Our kids loved the diving board and jumping off the top deck into the 11 foot water. The kitchen has everything and more that you need. The view is beautiful and the house is very comfortable and decorated beautifully. The owners are very easy to work with and I love that they donate the money to the orphanage in South Africa. We have already booked for next year.

This is Lake living!

  • 5 of 5

Our New Jersey group of 10 adults stayed at this wonderful lake home for a long weekend to attend a local wedding.

We are a group of long time friends who travel together often to many different places, so our expectations are high.

This beautiful house exceeded our expectations by far! We especially loved the architectural details of the house. A deceivingly large and welcoming home in a perfect piece of property, maintained in to the highest standards.

This house indoor and out plus its location, made us wish we have planned a whole week or more.

We can't say enough great things about this home and it is even more spectacular than photos.

The house is beautiful and had all the appliances and amenities that you would want/need. The layout of the house was also perfect for everyone to have their own space. No detail has been overlooked.

Everything in home is high quality and exceptionally thought out for all. Beautiful kitchen with open floor dining/living room plan.

Rainy days no problem while in this house as the views of lake from many windows and extra large main floor connected screened in porch,, help create an outdoor environment . The view of the lake is beautiful from inside house and the short walk on to the outstanding equipped dock, is even better.

Plenty of space for enjoying family and friends, both indoors and out. Then there is the lake and the setting at Decoy Point. You are in a peaceful cove, friendly neighbors, modest boat traffic, but you are minutes from the main channel, and all the activity of a vibrant water based community.

Bedrooms are spacious and creative for variable adult or family group sleep planning.

I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to focus (respectfully), their energy on enjoying the lake and dwelling.

Owners Jamie and Mary were a delight to work with in arranging our stay. Our group feels so very grateful to them for sharing their lake home retreat and providing us with an outstanding memory for our treasure chest.

Do not even hesitate to book this home! You will not be disappointed.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for large groups! Common areas in this home have room for everyone. The new boat house was great as well. My favorite area in the home was the huge screened in porch. Wonderful rental!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home from Thursday thru Sunday with 16 people a mix of children and adults. The house was perfect and fit our every need. The weather was perfect for taking the boat out, for the children playing in the water, and the adults hanging outside enjoying the weather and company. The kitchen was fully stocked with the appliances we needs, the space of the kitchen, dining room, and outdoor eating area were perfect for our family needs. This was the perfect house for a large family gathering. We played pool, we play ping pong, we roasted Smores outside on the fire pit, we sat around in the enclosed season room playing games. We truly enjoyed ourselves this past weekend and are planning on coming back again in the near future. Thanking you for opening your home to my family.

We had a great time! The house was amazing and in a great location. Kids loved the dock and boat during the day and the pool table at night. We'll definitely be booking this house again!
