About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, with waterfront view/access and a boathouse

Newly built home is ready for your family to have fun and create memories! The house has an open floor plan so regardless if you are in the living room or dining room or kitchen you are not far away from conversation and interaction.

The FAMILY ROOM has a cathedral ceiling, ceiling fan, pocket lights and sliding doors that lead out to the deck with a great view of the lake. This room has a 55” 3D Smart TV, 3D Blu-Ray Player, DirectTV, and an HDMI cable for a game console if you would like to bring one along.

The Master bedroom has a queen size bed, private bath, and large shower with his/her shower heads, a walk in closet, ceiling fan, 60” TV, Blu-Ray player, DirectTV, and a sliding door leading to the deck. Bedroom number 2 has a full and twin bed with closet and ceiling fan, TV, Blu-Ray Player, and DirectTV. Bedroom number 3 has two full bunk beds that can sleep 8 adults or kids comfortably.

The Kitchen is open to the dining and main sitting areas. Plates, glassware, mugs, pots and pans, flatware, coffee machine, convection oven, convection microwave, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator, electric skillet, touch sensor faucet, and the kitchen sink are included. All rooms are set up with wireless internet access.

The boathouse has an open slip large enough for a pontoon boat or bumpers to the left side to be tied off too. The water is 5 Ft deep off the end of dock and is good for swimming, but diving head first is not recommended. The closest free public boat launch (Poplar Creek) is 15 minutes from the house. Please be mindful that the house is located in a creek that is accessible via water way tunnel and will only fit boats with collapsible awnings or masts.

SITES AND SHOPPING is not far away. The location of our home gives you quick access to Rosemont Winery in South hill and Civil War trails in Lewisville. Food Lion, Ace Hardware, a Subway sandwich shop, is all located 15 minutes from the house. Wal-Mart and a bit more “city” life is located 25 minutes away in South Hill, VA. For more stores and restaurant options, Roanoke Rapids, VA or Henderson, NC is 45 minutes away North and South respectively. If you are not the venturing type, restaurants such as The Point and The Waterfront are accessible from the lake and minutes from the dock via watercraft or a bit further via car.

A feast for the eyes and soul!

  • 5 of 5

No words can even begin to describe how beautiful the Lakeside Getaway house is! No words or photos can relay the experience of being in this house, out on the deck or WOW that dock!

The inside of the house is so beautiful, brand new and spotless. Sitting inside the house with the massive window view just puts you in an amazing mood as you can see the trees and the dock right from those comfortable lazy boy sofas! The kitchen is the kind that you’d see on a cooking TV show! with super modern silver kitchen equipment and royal-like black marble counters and every utensil you can think of! The lighting system in the kitchen is amazing you can dim the lights as you please for the mood.

The master bedroom is like a honeymoon suite, we used to sleep with the curtains open to wake up to the view of the mist on the water. It was like looking at a piece of heaven with the mist moving on top of the water like clouds right from your bed :) The master bathroom is as big as a small apartment! There’s the jetted tub with a huge window next to it overlooking a beautiful view. We used to keep these curtains open too except while in the tub. The shower with the “his and hers” showerheads and those beautiful tiles is like one from a 7-start hotel. The walk in closet was a huge plus and so were the two sinks.

The deck is so spacious and perfectly furnished it was our favorite spot for lunch everyday right where the grill is! The dock, which is just a few feet from the house, was where we spent most of our days fishing from the morning till night. We caught so many catfish, the biggest was 4.5 lbs, tens of sunfish and yellow perch. This was the best fishing ever right at the comfort of a huge dock that offers light, power outlets, a nice bar with elegant marble counters and a storage room so we didn’t have to carry our fishing gear to and from the house. And guess what? There are two chaise longues on the dock! Perfect for tanning while waiting for these lines to drag ;)

The basement has a Ping-Pong table, kayaks and a conveniently located laundry room. Lakeside Getaway just has anything that anyone could possibly think of or need. We had an amazing time and to top all that, Brian and Rebecca were so great to deal with, they actually treated us like family! We had never experienced anything close to this with any of the owners we’ve rented with before. Thank you so much Brian and Rebecca and God bless you and your beautiful home. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for such an incredible review!! Rebecca and I really enjoyed meeting you. It is our goal that all of our Lakeside GetAway friends enjoy themselves and receive the 5 start treatment. You are both welcome back anytime and we cannot wait to see you again soon. I commit to you a guided bass fishing trip from my boat for your next trip back. We need to get more pictures of our friends with the day's catch. :) Best regards, Brian and Rebecca Askew

Amazing vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This is such an amazing house! The owners are such wonderful people. My husband and I enjoyed a vacation with 2 of our children and their families. The lake was wonderful. We all work such hectic and stressful jobs. This was so peaceful. It was just what the doctor ordered! So relaxing. We spent our days playing in the lake and at night enjoying the fire pit and just enjoying each others company. The grand kids went fishing off the boat dock and caught so many fish. They had such a great time. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet vacation to relax and decompress.

Thank you Brian and Becky for providing such a fantastic place to stay! We look forward to coming back again and having a family reunion.

Amazing vacation week

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house ! Enjoyed our week. The house had everything we could have possibly asked for. The guys really enjoyed the fact that we could just put the boats in and drive up to the boat house and park them. No time wasted loading on trailers each time. Looking forward to returning and seeing the additions completed. Will definitely return again.

Wonderful home and home owners

  • 5 of 5

This home was much more than we had hoped for. The owners were very nice and met us upon arrival. The home had everything you could need and the items were high quality. It was one of the nicest rental homes I have ever been in. We had four adults and two young children and there was plenty to do for everyone. The water is calm and the dock is great for fishing or just relaxing. Each of the kids caught 6-7 fish in one morning of fishing. If you are looking for a nice home on Lake Gaston this home will not disappoint.

Great house, great owners. House was clean, owner made sure we had everything we needed. Layout of house was great. We had 6 bass fisherman and 3 bass boats docked at house. Launch was accessible right under bridge, worth it to pay the 5 buck, than run to Poplar creek. Owner made sure his boat was removed so we could dock 3 boats. Appliances all modern, large tv, kitchen fully equipped. Master bathroom shower was awesome. great value for the money

This is a beautiful house. Right on the lake, accommodates large groups of people, modern house, and especially very nice master bath. Hope to get back sometime during warm weather and enjoy the lake more!
