There is no where better to be able to get away to and relax .. . the boat ramp being onsite is convenient, there are porches, patios and a sunroom to enjoy the view of the lake in many areas of the home. The zero entry from shore to water is a great features for smaller children while the depth at the end of the dock is still great for swimming and floating! Come ready to relax & soak up the sun!
We had two families that joined forces to end our kids summer with a bang. This location was ideal as the kids spent an excessive amount of time just being kids (which was awesome). The owners had recently constructed a large deck on the water which was where most of our time was spent. Another feature we loved were all the seating options for gathering. Whether it was on the wrap around deck, the deck on the water, inside the Carolina room (with a/c) or in the dink g area in the kitchen there was ample room for family time. We tried all locations and all were great. The neighborhood provided excellent walking or running options. The house had canoes and kayaks for use.... This was a big passer of time.
Some areas that could be improved upon but are not necessary to the enjoyment of this location are:
A ladder to access the dock instead of walking up the beach. A finger dock allowing access to deeper water would be nice for older kids especially for jumping into the lake. Maybe a few lounge chairs for sunbathing. Also stairs from the second level out into the back yard would be helpful in providing easy access to the kids.
Thank you for sharing your home! We had a wonderful time.
Knee Deep lake house was perfect for the kids and teenagers with all the games, kayaks and canoe. We enjoyed just floating around in the cove and we will return it was so great. Thank You
Our family had a wonderful vacation. So many places for each of us to do things. We had a fire one night and made S'mores, two of our grandchildren slept outside one night in their tent with their dad. The new dock was spacious and perfect for hanging out and playing in the water. There is a sandy beach, which is ideal for small children. And of course the fact that there is a boat ramp on the lot was a bonus.
check-in was a breeze at this house, because Jennifer had stashed a key in a lockbox for us and the onsite private boat ramp, meant I didn't have to start my vacation off waiting in line at a busy public ramp in order to Launch. The boathouse and dock had just been rebuilt and they did a great job, so we spent most of our time there catching rays, fishing off the dock, and running around in the boat. The binder that was left for renters included directions by boat to the marina by Eaton Ferry, so I filled up at their gas dock and took the kids to lunch at the grill. It was pretty good as far as bar food goes and I could see it being a fun place to have a beer in the busier peak season, and it was an easy 20 minute cruise from the house. Gaston is a lake where almost all the homes are beautiful and have nice boathouses and water access. I Didn't see a lot of chain link and pit bulls like some parts of Kerr, so that was nice. The docks can be a little bit crowded together as they are in this particular cove but the neighbors were really nice, and it wasn't a problem. We took out the canoe which was fun and we used a few logs from the huge pile of firewood provided to light a nice bonfire to roast smores. The house itself has great views of the lake and was comfortable in a very casual (if slightly kitchy way) with lots of lake themed knicknacks and signs and things. there were a few small challenges with the house- the main floor toilet flushes weakly and requires standing by holding the flusher down, the fire alarms were very sensitive and went off every time we used the oven, but for our purposes, the house was great. We weren't expecting perfection inside because the real charm of this house is looking out toward the lake,.
This home was perfect for our family and the location was great. Waking up with a hot cup of coffee and seeing that view was amazing. We had a wonderful thanksgiving on the lake!!!!!!
This was a perfect house and location on Lake Gaston for as very special family reunion. Everything was exactly as described and the weather was good every day to enjoy fun at the lake. The owner was terrific
This property is convenient to grocery stores and amenities for things needed during your stay however there is plenty to do while here - relax in, on or by the lake. Float, boat, ski, wakeboard, tube, kayak, canoe, - the sky is the limit and the water is yours to enjoy!
