About Daniel Moore

My grandfather built his cabin on the lake before I was even born, so I have spent holidays and summers on Lake Gaston literally my entire life. I think you will find the lake and my home to be the perfect place to create lasting memories for your family. I am always accessible by cell, text and email to give information about my home and the area.

Daniel Moore purchased this house in 1999

Why Daniel Moore chose Littleton

This house was built and designed around kids and playing on the water. If you have kids and enjoy life on the lake, you and your kids will LOVE this house!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was perfect for a New Years weekend with friends! We had one three-year-old who was in heaven with all of the toys in the downstairs playroom (along with six 30 year old men who had a ping pong tournament that lasted a whole day). The rooms are a good size and the whole place was clean and easy to use. Daniel was a great host- he was easy to get in touch with before and during our stay and even sent restaurant recommendations and information about nearby grocery stores, etc. Altogether this was a wonderful experience!

Comfortable nice large house

  • 4 of 5

The house is large, clean, and comfortable. We had a great time with our large family here celebrating my husbands birthday. It is located close to a great winery and has a grocery store 5 minutes away which was very convenient. The lake is beautiful. The only minor complains were the unexpected rental fee for linens. Seems this could just be included up front with rental cost. And the towels all had a damp mildew smell. Nothing major to ruin the trip or anything. Daniel was so great with communication and was very helpful booking the trip and answering questions.

Beautiful property, will be renting again at some point

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were a little confused because of the volleyball court. We had thought it was on the side, since we were told the septic field was in the middle of the circular driveway and not to park in the middle. Sure enough the volleyball court was right in the middle, so I'm not sure why someone would choose to park in the sand. We used the court just about everyday minus the rain, it's a bit tiny and the sand isn't exactly the best which left our legs a bit cut up when we dove but it was still a lot of fun. If you plan on playing volleyball be sure to make a wall with your cars around the court cause if you don't the ball will go directly into the trees, or down the hill straight for the lake. As well leave a pair of sandals nearby as if you have to chase a ball you'll be running barefoot over rocks, dirt, and plant life. There were racquets as well for badminton which was a lot of fun as well, and less chasing required. Inside the house was stunning. It has a kind of old homey type feel with beautiful views of the lake. There is so much space that half of the time you didn't realize how many people are there and where everyone is (We had 16). The kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking, though we used the grill the majority of the weekend. The dining table is massive and seats 16 with ease. The couches and beds are very comfortable and a lot of us ended up passing out on them after a day of swimming. There is a lot of fishing poles available which was nice, but we didn't get any bites. There is a sand pit outside by the water with some chairs and ladderball. The biggest problem was the ladderballs had been left out for god knows how long, so the strings on the balls were torn through so it was unplayable. There was a hammock by the sand pit that takes a bit to get comfortable but once you do it's amazing. There is a 6 person floaty which we used as well. It is anchored down, which wasn't a problem as we didnt want to float away anyways. There is a small row boat which a few of us took out one day. The basement has a bunch of toys, nerf guns, stuffed animals, toy train set, punching bag, air hockey, ping pong, and pool table. We didn't touch the bag as it looked to be on its last legs. The air hockey table didn't keep score, but still fun. The ping pong table we used the most and has definitely been through a lot. As well the pool table has seen better days, but it gets the job done. All in all great weekend, charming house

Overall, property was perfect for our needs, loved it, - but two years in a row we ran into issues

  • 3 of 5

Year 1 - Washing machine didn't work. Having a week stay, we planned on doing laundry, but couldn't. Also, we did not have enough linens. Missing linens for queen beds, only had twin size bed linens. Had to go into town to real estate agent and get more linens.

Year 2 - Washing machine was fixed and this year we had plenty of linens, but now the septic tank backed up into downstairs bathtub and toilet. We had human waste in the tub for TWO days. When I called the owner, his response was that I should go into town and purchase some industrial-strength Drano. After this did not work, he sent a crew to empty the septic tank (it was full and long over due). After this, the tub and toilet drained, but left terrible residue. Owner then sent a cleaning crew to clean the tub and toilet with bleach, but by this time the women of the house refused to use this bathroom. So this seven bedroom home really had only two useable bathrooms. When I asked the owner for a partial refund for the two days we had to put up with this inconvenience, his response was total silence.

It is a shame because I liked the house. It was perfect for our needs and had plenty of space for our 4 small grandchildren to play and not bother the adults. Nice dock area for swimming. Nice deck over looking the lake.

Owner's Response: I completely agree no one ever wants anything to inconvenience their vacation, but I honestly believe this review to be completely unfair. Mr. Duce called me around 5:00 Sunday afternoon to tell me one of the toilets was clogged and the bathtub drain had taken 20 minutes to drain after they had taken a bath. He said nothing of any human waste or anything remotely like that. I called my plumber and he said he couldn't get out there until the next day, so I called Mr. Duce back and asked if he would try Draino in the tub so they wouldn't have to be inconvenienced with waiting until the next day if that fixed the issue. He called back about an hour later to tell me that had fixed the clog. At 9:00 the next morning, he called again and said the problem was back. My plumber and septic company arrived at 11am and the problem was fixed by noon. The issue was not the tank being full (I have it pumped twice each year), but a clogged filter from things being flushed which shouldn't. Housekeeping arrived at 2:00 as requested by Mr. Duce and thoroughly cleaned the toilet (and the rest of the bathroom since they were already there). He is correct that I refused to refund two nights' rental for the problem because I believe that while yes, it was an inconvenience, he was attempting to take advantage of the inconvenience in a way that was well over the actual issue.

Family vacation fun

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time on our vacation at this house. We had 14 people, mostly adults and there was ample room for everybody! The kitchen was roomy and well equipped. The dining table was enormous and able to seat everyone at once. The walk to the lake was short and very manageable. There are plenty of things for children and adults to play with! Cornhole was a fav for all members! The water was really clean and warm and the float was fun to sit and chill on. Daniel was very friendly and easy to work with. We would definitely vacation here again!
