Property description

Lake Gaston is truly one of the outstanding lakes in the country! It's great for swimming, boating, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing and much more! It is approximately 34 miles long, one and one half miles wide at the widest part, has over 350 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 surface acres of high quality water. One of the great features of the lake is that because it is used for generating hydroelectric power, it must be kept within 1 foot of its normal level by regulation. Because of this, even when surrounding lakes are low due to drought conditions, Lake Gaston is at or very near its normal levels. Lake Gaston is conveniently located on the border between North Carolina and Virginia between routes I-85 on the West and I-95 on the East. It is about a 1.5 hour drive South from Richmond, VA, and about the same North from Raleigh, NC.

This house features three bedrooms and two baths. There is a lake view wrap around deck on the main level, a deck off of the upstairs bedroom and a screened in porch all to make outdoor entertaining pleasurable. The wrap around deck features a Weber gas grill and a 6 person patio table while the deck off of the upstairs bedroom has a bistro set perfect for enjoying lake views and morning coffee. The house is 1900 heated square feet plus a 1200 square feet basement. There is a washer/dryer, game room in the basement with a ping pong table and a foosball table. The house is child friendly with 4 ft. water off of the boat dock. Kids will love the paddle boat which is available along with a movie library and board games.

We have two (2) dogs and do allow pets with a pet deposit.

Please email me for a listing of local attractions and boat ramps as there are many exciting things to do close to our house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We own and operate a family business and we can't always leave it behind,so we decided to open it up to other lake lovers like us.

Why the Owner Chose Henrico, NC, USA:
We have traveled extensively renting houses in many states. As such, we know what people need when they are away from home. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need. There is also a Weber grill off the main deck with waterfront views. One of the upstairs bedrooms features lakefront view with a bistro set perfect for morning coffee. All linens are provided and a washer/dryer is available as well. A paddleboat is available for your use.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, dishwasher, a bar height counter top that seats three and a pub height table in the adjoining room that is open to the living room with sliding glass doors to access the expansive deck that is also fully furnished including a fire pit to roast marshmallows,etc.There are also several restuarants close by or pizza delivery from Toppers Pizza and there are two restaurants at Eaton Ferry's bridge, both of which that you access by boat (docking available).There is also The Lakehouse restaurant/bar that boasts a live band, corn hole and good food with some locals (within four miles). Or go to the Morningstar Marina and feed the fish, an experience that is truly unforgettable.
