Week with grandkids!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 9 - 3 adults, 3 college boys, 3 high school and middle school grandkids. Absolutely beautiful weather for the lake. The home is elegant and just as it appears in the pictures. Dock and house sit at the end of a narrow and shallow cove with only a slight view of the lake from the dock. The cove by the house was no more than 4 feet deep and not great for jumping off the dock to swim. We did not have boats or jet skis - good thing no boat bumpers, hooks for tying up or boat lifts to use. However we brought a paddle board and rented 2 kayaks and a canoe - great area for those items. The nice new grill was perfect! Bring deck chairs! Also life jackets and any floating devices you want - not included.

The dining tables were great for cards and games and the kids enjoyed the pool table.

Kitchen is well stocked with everything but glassware. Nothing in lower kitchen but built in appliances. The refrigerator was perfect for chilling beverages.

This was the best place me and my family had and it's way biger than shown in the pictures. It is a very clean and well maintained house. The owner is very friendly and helpfull. They replied to my emails and calls in a timely manner. We had so much fun in the lake during the daytime and in the house in the evening. I highly recommend this property to any one who wants to have good time.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 (2 elder, 4 adults, 4 teenagers) enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and well laid out. We used the boat house daily (endlessly) to take the kids tubing and explore the lake. Kitchen was well appointed. Internet worked well. Cell phone reception was good (better if you went outside). Food Lion is 17 miles away. I can't believe we visited it 4 times during our one week stay. I would recommend this property to my friends. (By the way, it is larger than it appears in the photo).

Great place to vacation on Lake Gaston!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a much-too-short stay at this beautiful home earlier this week. The home is far more elegant that the description. The rooms were huge and beautifully decorated. We had six adults and our six college-age children, and the size of the home was perfect for our needs. My mother, who has limited mobility, was able to visit as well since there are no steps leading from the garage into the house, and she was able to enjoy the deck out back overlooking the cove and dock. The men especially enjoyed the pool/ping pong table with large TV (for sports, of course!) downstairs. We cooked all of our meals in the spacious kitchen, and there was ample seating for everyone while dining as well as socializing between meals. We will absolutely rent this home for future vacations!
