Great Location - Wide Open Cove With Main Lake Views Without the Boat Traffic
Greg and Karen
About Greg and Karen
We are a military family with Greg's service of 20 years in the Air Force. We retired in Virginia and always look forward to the time we spend in North Carolina at our Lake Gaston Home. It is truly a wonderful place to relax as a couple or to reconnect with our extended family and friends.
Greg and Karen purchased this House in 2016
Why Greg and Karen chose Littleton
Before you find the perfect house at the lake, you have to find the perfect lot with the perfect water. We found all of them in one. Deep water with room to swim at the dock without main lake boat traffic or constant waves. But also not down in a narrow cove. We have a wide open area around our dock with main lake views and deep water. We have high speed internet even at the dock so you can stream your favorite tunes or work on that spreadsheet if you have to. This house is great for families with kids. There is a separate upstairs bonus room for the kids to watch tv or play games. There is also plenty of outdoor play space in the front yard as well as the backyard with dock close by. House is located in a quiet & safe neighborhood with very little street traffic, which is great for walking.
What makes this House unique
Boathouse & dock just steps away from the house, so you don't have to a long walk to get to the water. Very convenient.

A FANTASTIC house and place to vacation - five stars are not enough!
The house is beautiful! Well designed and appointed, it is perfect for probably any vacation ideas you may have. It sits on the west side of a VERY nice cove so the afternoon sun is not an issue. This makes hanging out on the dock at the end of the day or evening much more comfortable.
Everything about the house is excellent; the layout, bedroom sizes, beds, bathrooms, kitchen, screened porch, deck, garage, and the dock is especially well done. The owners have provided for pretty much everything you need. If there is something missing, it was not something we were looking to use, and we are kind of high maintenance travelers. They are also very responsive to any questions you might have.
We brought a boat and used it daily. The lake is a great boating environment and getting on and off the dock is very easy and accessible. There is a public boat ramp about 12 minutes from the house (both boating and driving time). The boathouse/dock is designed to be a place to spend your leisure time in the sun or shade and we did spend a lot of time enjoying it. The wide cove provides both a perfect view and setting.
We rent vacation houses a couple of time a year for one or more weeks per stay and this is by far the best house we have stayed in and we have rented some very nice houses. If you are looking for a "feels like home" experience with a double-splash of luxury, this is the house you want to rent.
We'll close with a couple of "dining" notes. If you like NY style pizza, try Casa Mia's in Littleton proper, and Lake Gaston Pizza makes a near classic Philly cheesesteak if you are a fan of those.
We had a 5 night stay with 11 people. The house was plenty big enough for all of us to relax, spend time together or apart, and have fun. We spent every night by the fire and fished swam and played corn hole every day. The only complaint was the lot being cleared each morning starting at 7 am on the new construction next door! Otherwise- a Beautiful home with great access to the lake!
We are very glad you loved our home so much. We truly feel we have the best house and location on the lake with limited boat traffic but all the great views. We welcome you to come stay with us again in the future.
Family in Wilson
This was the first vacation we as a family went on in years. The house, the view, the whole experience was great. We all cooked, grilled, played games and went fishing. It was a blast. Cannot wait to do it again. We are planning another vacation and want to stay here again. Great fun.
So happy to hear that you had a wonderful family vacation. We do hope you come again!
