Beautiful home, spectacular lake location

  • 5 of 5

We had a Great time at this home! The owner was quick in responding back to us with our questions and SO kind and accommodating! The home itself had plenty of fun things to do inside and out! Great space for everyone to be together or relax separately. We spent most of our time out on the dock and in the water. My boys and our dog loved chasing the fish and minnows in the water, swimming and fishing. The location on the lake was nice and quiet but not far to the main lake! We would def come and stay again!

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved the house! Great swimming, floating and kayaking cove. The house has a great setup and had plenty of room for us to cook and hangout at meal time. We all enjoyed the pool table and outside deck areas. We will definitely be looking forward to coming back next summer!

Great Stay with Family

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house - 5 adults and 2 toddlers, and 2 infants. The house was large and everything we needed for an excellent stay. The dock was great and we rented a boat from the marina, which was wonderful. The kayaks were great, too. Some very minor downsides of the house - the shower heads all had low-flow spray nozzles, which creates super wet air in the bathrooms, that the fan has no hope of keeping up with. (Nor is it especially comfortable.) The "beach" is a beach in the way that a pond is like an ocean. There is some sand to play in, and a sandy shallow bottom on the lake, but there isn't really a space to "lie out" or "walk the shore," as "beach" suggested to me. Not really a big deal. We had a great time and will consider the rental again if we journey down to Lake Gaston next year!

Owner's Response: I was glad to hear that these things did not ruin your week. The photo of the beach area is clear and the use of the term "beach" is common with anyone who has a sandy area adjacent to the water, on Lake Gaston. Our beach is actually a good size and I've spent many an hour with my guests lounging on the beach in the sun. Lake houses on Gaston are generally private residences with land which goes down to the lake - as is common for most lake houses. I struggle to describe the lakefront in any other way. It is baffling me that someone would look at the many photos posted of the lakefront and think it was a shoreline suitable for walks like an ocean beach. As for the shower...we have a community well and the low flow faucets are out of consideration to the environment and my neighbors. The flow from the shower heads is great! I have never heard of low flow faucets causing "wet air". I do believe "wet air" in a bathroom is the humidity caused from prolonged showers using hot water. Glad to hear you had a good time despite these issues.

Perfectly Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Hated to leave. The house was perfect for family vacation. We had parents/grown children and 2 granddaughters plus a baby granddaughter and had plenty of room, separate spaces for people that needed it. Kitchen handled our cooking needs very nicely. The outdoor space was great also. There isn't anything negative that I could think of to say. We had a great vacation at a great house. The water around the dock was great for the girls, easy in and out of the cove to the main part of the lake. All around an awesome place!. We kayaked, boated, floated, played corn hole, rested, relaxed, ate, and spent great time together. We ate at Waters View restaurant our last night and the food was great! Highly recommend this house to anyone!

Beautiful home and property!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently vacationed at Family Ties and had an amazing and relaxing stay. The house is so beautifully furnished and has all the comforts of home and more. As a family that loves the beach and has always gone to the outer banks, the lake did not disappoint! We would encourage any of our friends and family to rent this home, so they could have the incredible time we did. Thank you to Chris for being so kind and accommodating, your home felt like home! I think we will do it again next year!
