About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

This home has 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths; 1 kitchen, 1 laundry room; spacious well equipped game room with pool table, foosball table, an air hockey table and your own tiki bar.

Our lake home is a comfortable, Non-Smoking, two-level home with everything you will need to make your stay at Lake Gaston an enjoyable one. (Renters are responsible for providing their own linens and towels.) We have Cable TV, video and DVD players, to make your stay more enjoyable.

Inside the sliders and French doors offer wonderful views of the cove and lake. Outside, the upper deck is equipped with tables and plenty of seating when grilling out on the gas grill while viewing the wide open view of the lake. The lower slate patio offers access to the large yard with more expansive views of the lake and property.

Lake Gaston is on the North Carolina/Virginia border. The Lake is 34 miles long with 350 miles of shoreline. In addition to the main part of the Lake, there are many coves. We are located on Pea Hill Creek, one of the most treasured coves on the lake. In the middle of the main Lake, it's about 52 feet deep with the middle of the coves averaging around 16 feet deep. The water is very clean as it lays in the Lake.

A Food Lion grocery, an Ace Hardware, a Subway, and an indoor/outdoor flea market (Friday through Sunday) are all located less than ten minutes from the house. Thursday night, it’s bingo at the local fire hall. Restaurants are scattered around the lake and they range from diner style to more upscale. The closest large town is Roanoke Rapids, and is a 25 minutes drive from the house. A large mall with a Belk Store, Super Wal-Mart, movie theater, and numerous eateries are located there.

The boathouse/dock has both sun and covered decking. Tie up cleats are provided to easily secure your watercraft to the dock. You will have access to the community boat ramp for your convenience. Relax and float on a raft while the kids jump off of the dock and swim in this protected inlet that is only feet from the main cove away from any boat traffic. Enjoy taking your own kayaks or a canoe out for a peaceful, early morning nature tour around the cove. Relax and enjoy the view and peace in the backyard on a large deck overlooking the land and water after a busy day on the lake.

The water is so clean & welcoming for swimming & boating. The private cove gives our children a special place to play away from all boating traffic.We take great pride in our home and keep it very well maintained.

What makes this house unique

This property is where our family and close friends have made any happy memories. We all enjoy this beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped home at all times of the year. We especially love sitting on the dock & enjoying the view of the cove and the lake in the spring, summer & fall!

This home has a game room with Tiki Bar, large expansive deck with lake views, a great place for families to enjoy the lake and the security and privacy of a cove.

Nice escape

Very nice escape for our families. Peaceful and beautiful location to recharge. Game room occupied the kids and adults following lazy afternoons on the lake.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house truly met all of our needs. The open floor plan in the kitchen, allowed for cooking while chatting, and still able to see the game on TV in the living area. Of course everyone loved the game room downstairs. We rented DVD from local strip mall, and gathered around to watch a movie on a rainy night. The options for young people to entertain themselves was wonderful; my sons were there half a day before they asked for Wifi password, to busy playing air hockey and foos ball!!

The gas grill did break while we there and with in a few hours we had a brand new grill sitting on the deck. Owner was very responsive to all of our needs. Would definitely recommended for multi generational families traveling together!!

Very kid friendly!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great house! The game room was useful. The only downfall is the kitchen table. It only sits 6 people and we had 14. It was much too hot to sit outside on the deck with the other tables! Other than that it was great!

Perfect House for Us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for us and our kids that ranged from 10 - 17. The bedroom configuration met our needs perfectly. The teenagers made great use of the space downstairs. The master downstairs has a queen and a twin plus a flat screen TV hung on the wall. They loved hanging out in there, playing their Xbox and watching movies. There was a second TV downstairs too, so the kids were able to watch different things. The game room was fabulous! Hours and hours of fun playing pool, ping pong, and foosball plus a roulette wheel! The house has great insulation so we had peace and quiet upstairs while they had fun downstairs.There are two living areas upstairs, which allowed us to spread out. I was able to set up my laptop and work quietly in the front living room, which had very comfortable furniture. The wifi worked great!

The kitchen was stocked very adequately! We have never stayed in a rental that had everything we needed before. Having a second refrigerator in the laundry room helped out tremendously!

It was wonderful to be back in the cove. Though the bottom of the lake was muddy, the kids enjoyed swimming there at the dock and feeding the ducks. We also caught a few blue gills while fishing off the dock.

The neighbors are FABULOUS! When we had boat trouble on our next to the last day, the neighbors across the canal were kind enough to tow us to the boat ramp. To add to our bad day, our pickup truck had a dead battery, so the neighbor beside us quickly came to our rescue. We could not have done it without them and were so grateful for their kindness. SUPER nice people!

The yard was big and provided room for us to set up our badminton net and cornhole boards.

The lake was busy on the weekends, but during the week we felt like we had the lake to ourselves. When dragging kids behind the boat we didn't have to worry about other boats getting to close to them. They also enjoyed the nearby sandbar.

We will definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting to relax and have a great time on Lake Gaston. If you have kids or if you are vacationing with a big crowd, this house is the best!

Great house for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families that met in the middle for a family reunion. Our group included adults and children of various ages. This house had plenty of room and never felt crowded. The yard is huge and even had a swing set. The dock was great and we rented a boat for a few days and was able to keep it right at the house. I was concerned regarding the reviews related to internet connection in the past-but happy to say that is resolved and my connectivity and cell service was fine all week. Lake Gaston area is quiet and relaxing-fishing wasnt great but did catch some. I wish i had longer to stay- and definitely plan on going back.
