About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4-6
A wooden walkway accompanies you from the lower level all the way to the covered boathouse with lift, power and light. Use of the private boathouse and boat ramp is included in rental. Because this house sits in the rear of the cove, boat noise is very minimal. There is good fishing right off of the dock and also a ladder for swimming. No smoking or pets allowed. Also, there is no internet at Lyric's Lair which is perfect for those who need to unwind and take a break from email and Facebook! Verizon cell service works best, but cell reception can be spotty at our rural oasis.
Amenities for the little ones include, high chairs, bed rails, baby gate, and toys and games, and books for smaller children. Teens and adults will enjoy the selection of video games and movies and books for evening or rainy day activity.
For larger families, second home may be available for rental right next door. Sleeps 6 additional. Notify owner when submitting inquiry.

Our lake house on Pea Hill Creek on the Virginia/North Carolina boarder is in a rural area away from the hustle and bustle of the city and exactly what is needed for a vacation. Historic sites, antiquing, and even a old fashion drive-in theater are within a 30 to 60 minute drive. This part of Virginia/North Carolina is full of small towns with shops and restaurants with plenty of Southern hospitality, character and charm. There is even a winery, Rosemont only 45 minutes away
One of our favorites is the Raleigh Road drive in theater located in Henderson, NC about a hours drive from the lake but well worth the trip. The drive-in shows first run movies, with ticket prices well below what you would pay in a indoor theater. In front of the screen is an old fashion playground for the little kids and all the food purchased at the theater supports the operation.
Another favorite is the Watersview Restaurant at Easton's Ferry bridge on River Road. About 25 minutes from the lake house, this fine dining restaurant offers outdoor seating where you can catch some of the best sunsets on Lake Gaston.
Be sure to take the kids to The Point at Lake Gaston so they can feed the carp and geese that live at their docks. The kids can buy fish food for $1.00 a bag, while the grown ups can order typical American/bar style food such as burgers, fries, pasta etc. The food is good and beer is cold and if you get there early enough on a Saturday afternoon you can catch any number of sports on their TV's in the screened in Gazebo. This is a good place for casual family dining anytime while you are at the lake.
There is also a winery, called Rosemont of Virgnia. Rosemont features tastings as well as live music during the summer months with a 4th of July celebration.
Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: Hello! We are the Blevins family. We live in Woodbridge, Virginia and are a family of three. A working wife and husband who both work in downtown Washington, DC. Our daughter, Lyric, for whom the house is named (Lyric's Lair) is a rising 7th grader. We are your typical two-income working busy family. In our spare time, we devote ourselves to a cover pop band. With a singer and a guitar player in the house, we live in a musical environment. Our daughter also shares our love of music along with her other activities which include rock climbing, kayaking, and swimming at the lake! We love making memories at Lake Gaston and still schedule use of the house ourselves working around our many repeat renters who come back each year to make their own memories at Lake Gaston.
Why the Owner Chose Gasburg, VA, USA:
This property was originally suppose to be a 'build it and sell it' type of investment, but we fell in love with Lake Gaston and its been an important part of our life ever since. We didn't originally think we would rent the house, but found that we loved it so much we wanted to share our little piece of Lake Gaston heaven with others who wanted to enjoy this unique lake. Everything we do, we do with family in mind. Like childproof locks and outlet covers throughout the house so that parents with small children can relax a bit more. Nightlights, high chairs, and a pack and play are provided to help keep families with small children from lugging around a lot of stuff on their vacations. The movie area downstairs has a sectional sofa instead of theater seating so everyone can sit together. We work hard to keep the house in excellent shape, keep it modern and provide all the comforts of home for our guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house faces the west, so the sunsets in the evening are particularly spectacular from the upstairs deck. The house is shaded and protected by the tall trees that stand in the yard. These trees provide shade, protection from boat noise, but most of all provide a natural playground for many species of native birds, including humming birds, and red crested woodpeckers. The low level lights outside at night provide opportunities for star gazing at a level you just can't get in the city. The lake house was really designed to fit as unobtrusively as possible into its natural surroundings. We provide Kayaks for getting out on the lake to experience it's beauty even if you don't own a boat. A ladder is provided for swimming right off of our dock. We have a saying in our family that "You haven't been TO the lake, until you have been IN the lake"!
