About Tin (Jason) Nguyen
We are the family of five and our cottage on beautiful Lake Gaston is our dream come true.
Tin (Jason) Nguyen purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Tin (Jason) Nguyen chose Roanoke
We have come to the lake since last year. We are always excited whenever we were there, we have carved out as much time as possible to visit the lake house. Being at the lake house is fantastic it would take away all the stresses that we have from work. We fell in love with the lake house and delighted to share it with you.

Nice house with good amenities, quiet location with good access to the lake.
Overall, the house was nice. There was plenty of space. Several tables, including one on the screened-in back porch, made it easy to manage meals and other activities. Most of our time was spent on the dock, which had plenty of space for numerous activities. We used the available kayaks and canoe to go boating, along with an inflatable boat we brought. Plenty of time was spent swimming and floating on tubes and rafts in the easily accessed and just-right depth of water off the dock. Fishing was one of the main activities and several good-sized catfish were caught, along with many perch, sunfish and even one turtle! There was a good supply of dishes and utensils, as well as quite a few spices and other condiments. For anything we needed, there was a grocery store less than 5 minutes away. All the necessary appliances were there and functioning well. The central air worked great and it was hot outside, so that was a blessing. Lots of ceiling fans circulated the cool air well. I even got some time in on the treadmill to stay on my exercise program. A very functional, nice place. If I have any complaint, or negative comment, it would be regarding the bed situation. There is a master bedroom with a double bed, sliding-door access to the back porch and a full bath. That's great, but the bed is sunken in the middle, causing both occupants to roll to the low spot and be crammed together. The bunk beds in the other two bedrooms are obviously intended for children, so if you have more adults than a couple in the master bedroom, they're stuck with one the bunks. Maybe not so bad, except the bunks have very thin mattresses with no box springs and they rest on unforgiving metal cross-bars that make for a rather uncomfortable night trying to sleep without being in pain. I'm a side-sleeper and after a few hours I woke up with my hips in agony from those bars. Like I said, the bunks are obviously meant for children who can probably tolerate them better. But when you advertise a house that sleeps 8, you need to consider that there may be more than 2 adults. Otherwise, a great stay and we had a really good time.
Awesome get away
Fun place to stay with a nice house and dock on the water. I had no complaints at all it was a good time and will look into booking this house again!
Had a nice time.
Almost everything was great. Nice place to hang out. House and dock are back in a cove, so we weren't bothered by the busy boat traffic. Only problem we had was with the bunk beds. Very squeaky and the ceiling fan is VERY close to the ladder. Otherwise perfect stay.
Sabrina, I would like to say thank you for taking your time to do the review and glad that you had a good time. Yes, the bunk beds are squeaky and was bought for kids to sleep. We are in the process to replace one of the bunk beds and hopefully it would help in your future stay.
Nice enclosed swimming area for little kids
nice home.....however, i noticed two roaches....one near the stove....one inside the dishwasher....
Draws could be labeled to make finding easier
enjoyed the netflix,,,but no radio reception
Alan, Thank you for your stay and taking time for the review. I am glad that you enjoyed Netflix the swimming area and you also indicate that it is a NICE HOUSE. Per your recommendation, I will label the draws to make it easier for the renters to find things. Thank you for your honest review. We did ask the A & S Pest Control (professional terminator) to come back to spray the bugs and I also put the Harris Roach tablets/pills around the house and under the oven, refrigerators, and etc. Hopefully, there will be no more bugs in the house. As far as the radio reception goes, the house in the rural area and it is very hard to pick up the signal if you are not in the right location with an allowable weather condition.
The home is very dark and musty. We were grossed out when we began seeing cockroaches. The kitchen was infested with them and we had to cut our vacation short. Besides being totally disappointed my whole family was inconvenienced. I do not recommend this property.
I would like to say thank you for your stay and sorry for inconvenience, your concerns have been addressed.
Great price for a wonderful home with many amenities
Would highly recommend. We had a large group here to spend a few days at the lake and catch up with old friends. We were very happy with the house and the amenities provided. Everything worked well and the kayaks, dock, and grill all added to the experience. Thanks Tin!
Thank you for taking time to do the review. I am glad to welcome you back in the near future and also glad that you had a wonderful time with your friends.
