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 Henrico

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 ...

Amazing place on the water

  • 5 of 5

The home owners where awesome. Let us check in early because we where out of town and where easy to get a hold of. We have been doing a guys fishing trip for 8 years now and the home owners where bye far the best to work with. The only down fall about this house was the kitchen was small for 6 guys but other than that it was a gorgeous home and would stay again. The dock had plenty of room to tie up our 3 boats and even had use of boat lift.

Family get together early 2017

  • 4 of 5

This place is in a great location, close to the grocery, and the lake view is incredible. The upstairs loft bedroom worked really well for my infant grandson, as the doors could close and make the room dark, like he has it at home. We had fun jumping off the dock and swimming, at least once the water warmed up! We rented a pontoon from Timber House Lodge, what a pleasant bunch of folks to deal with. I see why so many people have lake houses, now, it can definitely grow on you.

This place has it ALL!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location...You couldn't ask for a better vacation spot! We have been vacationing here for several years. The owners are fantastic. The house is comfortable and complete with everything needed plus amazing views. The lake provides plenty of relaxation and activities for the whole family to enjoy, from toddlers to great grandparents.The dock is perfect for sunbathing, fishing, enjoying a family meal on the lake, and of course jumping off the top deck (a family favorite). We will definitely continue to come back year after year!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 people of all ages and everyone had the best time! The new double decker boat dock was a hit! The house was so welcoming and the beds were very comfortable. We had plenty of room on the dock for our bass boat and the pontoon we rented. The location on

The lake was great so we could swim and kayak in the cove without worry of lake traffic. We enjoyed many night cruises and smores at the fire pit. Our family had one of the best vacations ever and can't wait to return!

Family Vacation get away

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time, the kids loved jumping off the top of the deck the best. We wanted to stay another week. The kitchen was very small but we made it work. The beds were very comfortable and we loved the view overlooking the lake. We will try to go back next year for sure.
