Notice that there is a discount for a seven night stay (a seven night stay in the Summer, for example, is $3000 plus taxes and fees - saving the guest $500 (plus taxes and fees)).
Having three paddle boards, a pedal boat, two kayaks and all of the supporting equipment available to the guest makes this property a most appealing choice on Lake Gaston.

We have now completed our third year of inviting guests to share our Lakefront Home. We have met some outstanding individuals and have particularly loved our many conversations designed to help ensure a most positive Lake Gaston experience (for some this involved rest and relaxation, for others it involved fishing, boating, swimming and gaming, while still others enjoyed winery tours, golfing and shopping).
We have also appreciated the insight provided by our guests that has helped us improve the experience for each subsequent guest.
For those who are planning a vacation for the summer of 2018, understand that calendars fill quickly – many of our guests lock-in dates a year in advance.
Remember that Lake Gaston has incredible weather throughout the year - my family was boating in late December this year - with temperatures in the mid-70's...
The key to a most successful "get-away" is often in the planning stage. My recommendation is to begin early.
This year our home has hosted single couples looking for a romantic get-away, anniversaries, family reunions, and a large number of guests who simply wanted an opportunity to reconnect with friends and family.
With this year’s experience as the backdrop, we look forward to working with each of you as you plan your Lake Front Get-Away.
