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!

My family celebrated my mom's 75th birthday on Mother's Day weekend and could not have loved the house more. Beautiful, modern, and comfortable, this house easily accommodate our family of 14. There were toys for the kids, and amazing screened in porch at the house. The boat house was well stocked for swimming, paddleboarding or kayaking. Located on a quiet section of the lake with a shallow end, everyone from 2 to 75 had a blast! Kitchen was wonderful, the perfect gathering place with tons of space for your groceries. We had a small issue with the AC that the owner immediately addressed (on a holiday weekend no less). We are already planning on coming back next year!!!
House was perfect for our crew and as advertised. Would definitely stay here again!
Beautiful, peaceful location with all the amenities you’ll need.
Love this house! Well kept and maintained, beautifully updated, very spacious with so many places to relax and unwind. Enjoyed the boathouse for fishing and catching some sun. Recommend renting the boat and going for rides as well.
We just came home from a weekend away here and it was great! We had issues with the internet connection but Mary was very helpful trying to get it sorted out for us. They had everything we needed for a great stay there. Can’t wait to go back again in the future!
We are a family of 5 (three teen-aged children) who wanted to get away and reconnect with each other. SO many places around the property to sit and talk that are beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable. The house and property were also big enough that we could all have our own space for to ourselves for reading, napping, whatever! And so many treats - we kayaked, we rented the pontoon boat, we grilled out, we did S'mores over the portable fire pit, we played games and ate breakfast on the screened-in porch, we read and napped on the couches on the screened in porch, we played many games of pool, we watched Impractical Jokers on TV, we watched one of the MANY wholesome and entertaining movies in the DVD library at the house. My wife even brought along her work-out equipment and stayed on-course with her 80-day work-out commitment by working out in the spacious room on the first level of the house. The house was clean, well-decorated, well-maintained. The owners/care-takers were very accessible and very helpful with questions we had throughout the stay. The house is on a very quiet inlet of the lake, very little boat traffic, but very short distance to the main body of the lake and one of the main marinas on the lake. Neighbors on either side were very quiet. We are DEFINITELY going to visit again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
We rented this house to host a few out of town guests for our engagement party, which was hosted at Lake Gaston. We can only say...WOW. This was a fabulous place. It was so huge! We were very impressed by the layout and the selection of rooms- which was great considering we had a big group! The porch overlooking the lake was perfect for late night talks and early morning coffee. We absolutely enjoyed staying here and will definitely be looking this house up again if we ever need another lake-cation!!
