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 Marianne chose Roanoke
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

This was an awesome trip! We came here as a honeymoon trip!!! We had our friends come stay a night.
The view was awesome! We weren't able to fish due to the weather, but it was a good getaway. We plan to come back as soon as we can!
wonderful weekend getaway
arrived just as sun was setting. what a view of the lake. amazing. plenty of room. relaxing porch with grill and plenty of chairs and large table. cooked out and enjoyed the view. lots of space on the dock. tandem kayak. fish were biting even with the cooler weather. go in to Littleton Ace Hardware next to Food Lion and outfitters for large minnows. perfect bait for bass off the dock. tandem kayak for use also.

Beautiful house and unbeatable view!
This is our third year staying at this beautiful house. Marianne is super easy to deal with and responds almost immediately to any questions I had. And that view from the house-- easily the best by the lake! I look forward to visiting next year!
Spacious Modern Living with Spectacular Lakefront Views
My family had a wonderful time on Lake Gaston in this Macon, N.C. getaway. The living area is spacious with modern furnishings and opens up to a wide patio that overlooks the lake. Whether eating meals, grilling or just relaxing on the patio, the view is incredible! We especially enjoyed the spectacular sunsets that can be enjoyed from either the patio or the private dock. We also took advantage of the kayak to explore the lake, and swam in the deep water off the dock. We plan to come back for another relaxing and fun-filled escape. Thank You!
Very nice location
We enjoyed our stay very much. Wish we had known beforehand that we would be occupying the bottom half of the house, as it was a bit of a hike bringing food and luggage down to the home. My husband has a heart condition, and the hills were a bit challenging for him. Once inside, it is quite beautiful, and accommodated us nicely.
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.
