Property description

Approximately 2200 square feet in this accessory suite, located in the beautiful Lake Gaston gated community of Harbor Landing where the views are million dollars and the homes are all spectacular! The large master bedroom features a four poster, king bed and the secondary bedrooms feature queen beds and nightstand (with drawers) with luxurious bedding. The master bedroom suite features two comfy sitting areas and a beautiful master bath as well as a wall mounted TV. Both front-bedrooms feature remarkable lake front views. The third and fourth bedroom (theatre room) have lake views as well, but are not lake front rooms. The theater room has a 55-inch wall-mounted flat-screen TV, a queen sleeper sofa and additional seating. The well appointed kitchen is bright, open and airy. The living area features leather seating, a flat-screen TV and a full wall of windows that overlook Lake Gaston. In fact, sitting inside the home or out on the terrace, you feel like you are actually at the water's edge! Full size washer and dryer are included as is a Graco pack n' play and highchair. Down at the lake, a boat house with docking areas for your boat and/or PWC(s) features a sunning area as well as shaded spots. A tandem kayak is also available for your enjoyment (though you must provide your own lifejackets). The depth of the water off of the boathouse is about 16 feet! So feel free to jump right in!

About half a mile from the home, there is a community launch for ease of getting your boat and/or PWC to the boathouse.

Location

75 Miles
Nearest Airport
Raleigh-Durham (RDU)

Car: Necessary

Lake Gaston is truly one of the most outstanding lakes in the country. It's great for swimming, boating, fishing, jet skiing, wake boarding, water skiing and much more. It is approximately 34 miles long (and Heron House is almost in the middle at mile marker 14), a mile and a half at the widest part, and has over 350 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 surface acres of clear water. One of the greatest features of the lake is that because it is used for generating power, it must be kept within 1 foot of it's normal level by regulation. Due to this, even when the surrounding lakes are low, Lake Gaston is at or very near it's normal levels. Lake Gaston is conveniently located on the border between North Carolina and Virginia (in fact, you can see the Virginia border buoy at the mouth of Poplar Creek across from Heron House) between routes I-85 on the North West and I-95 on the East. Lake Gaston and Heron House are an easy 1.5 hour drive from Richmond, Virginia and about the same from Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. Heron House is just a 20 minute boat or car ride from Eaton's Ferry (Morningstar) Marina, WatersView Restaurant, and the local grocery stores and other restaurants. Eaton's Ferry is a great resource for local information, watercraft rentals and service, and a quick stop for marine gas and food. While there, be sure to buy some fish food and take some time to feed the wild catfish, carp, and fowl that make Eaton's Ferry their home. WatersView Restaurant is the local go-to place for great food and views of the lake. (Hint: Sunday Brunch is delicious!) With great views and fine, yet casual dining, both Eaton's Ferry and WatersView Restaurants are good local treasures to experience. In addition, there's also the Rosemont Winery which is located about 10 minutes away where you can have a wine tasting and enjoy a nice lunch. Visit or call (434)636-9463. Visit www.lakedirectory.net, to learn more about Lake Gaston including more places to eat as well as additional activities, etc.

Owner info

About the owner: We are a family of 4 who cherish our times at Lake Gaston. Something about being on the water all day really bonds the family, and creates lasting memories. To us, grilling and watching the sun set at the end of a lake day is a treasured family tradition.

Why the Owner Chose Macon, NC, USA:
We chose Lake Gaston because lake life has always been important in our family through the generations. Our hope is that you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated and invigorated as you enjoy yourself in a luxurious setting with unforgettable views, in the hopes that you can create your own lasting memories. We place ourselves in your shoes in order to serve our Guests in the best and most comfortable way.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Heron House features an intimate space for smaller friend/family gatherings, and allows guests to have the "main lake" experience, without the McMansion main lake pricing, while maintaining a luxurious, fun-filled, and relaxing atmosphere. This allows for more meaningful time to spend with your friends and family, and of course allows Heron House to be an affordable vacation destination. The lake is so close that sitting on the patio feels as though you're at the water's edge. Getting to and from the entrance to the home is without steps and the rental is a single level. From the home to the boathouse features minimal stairs for ease of access. The main living area of the floor plan is open and bright.
