What makes this cottage unique

This is one of the quietest places we have ever been to. We love this little place on the lake. The mornings on the lake are beautiful. The sunsets are stunning. The trees on the property are wonderful, and we love all the beauty nature brings in this little piece of heaven. The stress from our busy lives melts away the minute we pull onto the property. Simply put, we love this place!

Surpasses All and EVERY Expectation!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures for a Tree Top View are impressive, but, no pictures or words can do this property or its wonderful owner Anne Marie enough justice!

The house itself is more beautiful than any words can describe, three amazing bedrooms and an extra small room over the kitchen with a sofa and great views of the trees from the highest point of the house. The master bedroom is a 7-star hotel standard with a huge bathroom with a jetted tub, double sink and lake views. It's like a honeymooners' suite with the view that no hotel can offer! The second and third bedrooms are of equal furnishing quality, taste and more nature views. The second bedroom has lake views while the third has forest views like a tree house! The kitchen is perfectly located, you can actually see the lake and trees from it while cooking! The second bathroom is spacious and tastefully decorated. The house and kitchen are loaded with everything anyone could think of from spices to games and everything in between.

The deck and dock are masterpieces! They'd be catching your eye from the heavenly lake and trees view! They have lights that surround them adding a beautiful touch to an already dazzling portrait of natural scenery. The staircase to the dock is nestled between trees and views that you can't keep your eyes off. And when you arrive at the dock, a whole new portrait greets you! The dock is huge and furnished to perfection and the views from the dock to the house with the granny's deck just add to the pleasure of the eyes along with nature.

Now the icing on the top of the cake is the fishing! We're addicted to fishing and this house just can't get better than that even with the fish! We caught a 19 lbs catfish among many others, several hefty large mouth bass, a huge sunfish (we've never seen a bigger bluegill)! We even saw a huge alligator gar pass right under the dock, we spent the remaining two days trying to catch one, but, gars aren't that easy to catch. The excitement level was so high throughout the the trip and a Tree Top View truly surpassed our every expectation in every way!

Anne Marie couldn't have been sweeter, more supportive or accommodating of our every need! We can't thank you enough Anne Marie or express how grateful we are for the best experience we've ever had with a lake house rental! Thank you so very much for sharing and WE WILL be back! You have a perfect house and you've attended to every single detail and then some. You and your house are amazing!

Comfortable, beautiful, peaceful and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect 3 day weekend spot on the Lake. Amazing views from a clean and comfortable home. House and dock had everything you need for 4 kids to have a blast. Water was clean and warm enough to swim in October. We rented a boat and tube from Morningstar Marina for 7 hours and had the best day ever on the Lake. Fed a family of 6 at Grandpa's Kitchen for $35! All in all, perfect Fall getaway!

Awesome lake, awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We are convinced a great lake house beats a beach house any day. This place is ideal for lake lovers. Great views, sunsets, deck on the water, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, tubing, happy hour on the deck.

The owners made this an easy rent as well with plenty of extras not commonly available to renters like kayaks, floats, fishing poles, linens, toiletries, etc.

Great lake, we would come back!

Long Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My Family stayed for a long weekend and we had the best time. We have rented several places at Lake Gaston and this one was the best so far. Our main reason for going is to fish off the dock all weekend. Between Friday and Sunday we caught more than 3 dozen fish. Catfish, Crappy and Sunfish. Almost all the catfish were over 10 pounds with one weighing in at 25 pounds! The kayaks were fun too! The kids enjoyed everything from the Xbox, the loft, swimming, hammock. The pictures really don't do it justice. The owner, Annie Marie, is so nice, she made sure we had everything we needed, the house was so clean, stocked great with blankets, pillows, and everything you need in the kitchen. The internet access was solid all weekend and we had cell service the whole time. It is also very easy to get to and so close to the marina and Bracey. We are looking forward to coming back real soon. Thanks again Annie Marie, it was a great weekend!

Great Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, everything was wonderful! The cottage is private, the views, the fishing, peacefulness - a slice of heaven, I could go on .... The views are just amazing both during the day and the evening, we were lucky to have a full moon too. The cottage has everything you need + more. The Rosemont winery is so close and amazing. Husband and I had a great time at the Tree Top View!

Wonderful Week at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

This property provided an excellent resting spot for a relaxing week at Lake Gaston. The description was accurate but did not do the property justice. The views are amazing!

The home was clean and well maintained. Anne Marie was responsive and helpful in the weeks before our trip to answer all questions and give us all the information we needed prior to arrival. Perfect getaway for those that love the water and all that implies!

The stairs back and forth to the boat dock might prove difficult for small children, elderly visitors, or those with disabilities. Lack of Wi-Fi might prove difficult for teenagers and some adults!
