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 Littleton

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

We had a great time! The weather was perfect, the house was awesome and the kayaks were a blast! We ate every meal on the deck and enjoyed the incredible view! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. The view in the backyard was priceless. My only regret is not bringing enough bait for the fish. The owner is very helpful and I would definitely recommend this house.

We had a wonderful time! The owners were wonderful to work with and the house was beautiful. We had 6 adults and 5 young children and the house accommodated is perfectly. We also rented the pontoon boat and our families loved it! We’d definitely stay again!
