Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time at Lake Gaston. The weather could've been better, but we still had a great time. Mike was so helpful in providing driving directions and information about the area. The house was very clean and had plenty of room for everybody. The kids enjoyed the playground and we used the firepit several times to make smores. We loved sitting down on the dock and caught several fish. We would definitely rent this house again!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights in January so we could get together with family from Virginia and North Carolina. The house is beautiful, clean and very well-equipped. Plenty of beds and seating space for our group of 15. Although temps were in the 40s we went fishing off the dock and took the canoe out on the lake. We really enjoyed using the large outdoor grill and fire pit, and the kids liked the little playground. The pool table was nice also. Michael, the owner, was very friendly and helpful as was the local property manager/housekeeper. We would definitely stay here again. Be advised, there are very few businesses in Bracey so you should bring your groceries, bait and supplies with you. The cottage was a little hard to find, it's best to get there before dark. Overall a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! You are correct that Bracey is a small town with limited options for groceries. When we stay there we normally drive to South Hill for groceries, it is the next exit north on highway 85, a 10-15 minute drive from the lake house. There are several large grocery store chains in South Hill. You will also find a Home Depot there and a number of restaurants. Regarding the location of the Lake house, it is only 2-3 miles from highway 85. I provide turn by turn directions from highway 85 to the lake house. Sorry you had trouble finding it. I have not received that feedback from anyone else. I agree with you that it is always a good idea to arrive before dark when you are going to a place you haven't been before. I hope you come to stay again! Mike

Relaxing Weekend Playing on the Water, Wonderful Main Lake Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spending the weekend celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary at the lake. The house was the perfect setup for three families. The lake was also a perfect location as we were coming from North Carolina and Virginia. The kids ranged from 5-16 and all had a great time. We brought our boat with us and found that the community boat ramp, which is only a couple of houses down, was extremely convenient. (There is also an area at the top of the driveway to park the boat trailer which was nice.) We also used Holly Grove Marina to gas up the boat, again very convenient. We appreciated the use of the owner's kayak. We had perfect weather and enjoyed boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding without much lake traffic at all. This was our first visit to Lake Gaston and we will definitely return. The owner, Mike, was extremely easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions we had. As another reviewer mentioned, a trash service would be nice (if it is offered in that area).....we just had to remember to take our bagged trash with us when we left. The community trash dumpster was close to the I85 ramp so pretty easy to drop off on our way out of town. Thank you again for allowing us to rent your lovely lake home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Many of the homes on Lake Gaston, including mine, are located in Mecklenburg county. Each town in Mecklenburg county provides weekly trash collection services to residences located within the town limits. Unfortunately, many homes on Lake Gaston that are located within Mecklenburg county, including mine, are not within town limits, so trash collection service is not offered. Instead we are instructed to deposit our household garbage into the green collection containers located throughout the County. Fortunately, there are several of those close to my lake house that are located on common routes that most people travel anyway as they exit the area. I will continue to monitor this and look forward to when trash removal service is offered.
