About Cathy Werder

We purchase our Lake Gaston home is 2000 with another family. Our goal was to have a safe, fun place for our children as they entered the teenage years. We wanted to be surrounded by family and good friends and have guests join us at the Lake. We eventually bought our partners out and own the house ourselves and that is why we share it with you! We love Lake Gaston and as our children grow and get involved with sports and jobs we are not able to spend our full summers at the Lake ... so Lucky YOU... now we rent to wonderful families like you. We hope you treat our home like your own and build wonderful lasting memories with family and friends. Be SAFE and have fun.

Why Cathy Werder chose Quail Ridge

Location, Location, Location ... open living space, great water (shallow at bulk head and 14 feet at the end of the dock!) and such easy access to the main lake and the whole lake. We are also within 5 miles by road to the local grocery store, gas stations and shopping center.

What makes this house unique

2 families can easily work and live in our home ... the driveway will accommodate boat trailers and several cars ... our view is amazing ... our cove is calm ...

Great dock and location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay, plenty of space in house- basement room a great bonus for kid hang-out space. Beautiful view from house, deck, and dock. Appreciate use of the boat lift to protect our ski boat. Appreciate the loungers, table/ chairs and umbrellas on the dock. Kids loved jumping off the upper deck- good deep water off the end of the dock. Close to grocery and a few restaurants by car, central lake location made few available restaurants accessible by boat. Will definitely return.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed Lizard Creek Retreat! Wonderful location on the lake with a fantastic view! Dock facilities are outstanding - fishing, sunbathing, boat lift, swimming off the dock, jumping off the high deck. The house is clean, comfortable, attractively decorated, and has a well-stocked kitchen. There was plenty of room for six adults and one baby to hang out. Gentle slope going down to the dock. The owners responded quickly to all my questions. We hope to return to Lizard Creek Retreat in the future!

peaceful, relaxing, spacious, awesome dock, very spacious living area, herons & bluebirds!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisting of 7 adults and 1 child thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The living area is very spacious with plenty of seating for everyone. There's even a small table for puzzles or playing games. The bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Deck on the house and the dock are great for just reading a book and relaxing or you can get motivated and jump off the top of the dock! Lots of herons and bluebirds, friendly? snapping turtle, fish to be caught off the dock. We would recommend this lake house to everyone. Setting is perfect, no steep stairs to the water and the view is fantastic.
