Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Sunny one day, rainy the next, it didn't matter! The screened porch was our favorite. We took our own floats and enjoyed the lake so much. It is a very relaxing environment. The pictures represent it very well! The home itself was well-supplied, clean and comfortable. The owner was easy and pleasant to deal with and we would definitely stay at this property again.

Another great stay at Lake Gaston

  • 5 of 5

This is our family's third summer stay at Bob's place. We always enjoy it. Located on a great part of the lake, in a private creek away from the sometimes seemingly chaos of the main lake. You're one culvert and < 1 mile from the Eaton Ferry Marina and access to water-accessible restaurants, fuel, etc. We're already looking forward to our stay next year!

Great house with even better yard located right on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing lake house for a family weekend or small group of adults. Close to the lake with very nice boat house and dock. Nice flat yard and wonderful screened deck with plenty of space and seating. We will be coming back!

Great Location on Lake - Early November 2016

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay here. The screen porch was very relaxing, we spent most of our time fishing off the dock and caught a lot of fish. The boat house had plenty of nice chairs for the dock. The updated Kitchen was very nice. Internet and TV/Netflix worked good. Living room was very comfortable.The only down side was the areas of (what appeared to be) mold spots on the ceilings in a couple of the bedrooms - especially in the master. There was a moldy odor too. Some of that is expected with lake cottages, but it was a little more than usual.
