Susan & Rob Bucklin purchased this Townhome in 2004
Why Susan & Rob Bucklin chose Northwest Raleigh
The house is very private, quiet and convenient to RDU airport, RTP, NCSU, UNC, Duke, downtown Raleigh & Durham, shopping, parks, NC Museum of Art and some great restaurants to name a few things. We have equipped it with pretty much anything you could possibly need for a delightful stay. If we are missing something, we are only 10 minutes away. Raleigh is a great area, where we are just four hours away from the Blue Ridge Mountains on one side and two hours from the beaches on the other side. We look forward to hearing from you.
What makes this Townhome unique
The best things about this area are: Location, because it is convenient to many popular destinations in Raleigh and easy access to getting in and out of town. Peacefulness, as it sets at the end of a no through access road in a very quiet neighborhood. Friendliness, because your neighbors have been our friends for many years. Comfort, because we have tried to anticipate all your needs while being away from home. Then last but not least Privacy, because having the woods behind and the lake beside you, the only interruption you may have are the geese in the winter and the frogs in the summer.

Long Lake Getway/Susan and Rob Bucklin
When my high school colleagues and I made plans to visit colleges in North Carolina, it was our good fortune to come across this gem of a rental. From specialty soaps to linens, from cleanliness to kitchen needs, with coffee, fresh fruit ad bagels, Sue thought of every possible detail. We felt like we had all the amenities of a luxurious hotel, with a homestyle touch. Our only regret is not having more time in the area to enjoy it. We hope to return, and will most definitely recommend it to our families interested in viewing colleges in the area.
My company travels a bunch for business and Susan is the most thoughtful and helpful host we've ever had the pleasure of staying with! The house had all the amenities you could ever need and more. It was convenient to everything in Raleigh and easy for our commute to Durham. We will definitely be staying here again! Thank you so much, Susan!
We had a fabulous stay at Long Lake! The house had everything you could need plus so much more. The host was so thoughtful in stocking the house with extras like bagels, beer, wine, coffees and half & half, fresh fruit, etc. This house was spotless clean with very comfortable beds. Plenty of fresh towels for everyone. There’s a supermarket 2 mins from the house, which was really convenient. Susan met us there when we arrived, gave us a tour of the home and offered us suggestions on what to do and where to eat. Could not have asked for a better vacation rental. Thanks for everything! We will be back again!!
Beautiful clean and perfect Long Lake House
Our son and his family were coming in from California, so we decided to rent a house for the six of us. We read all the reviews about Susan and Rob's Long Lake house and we agree with all of them, only it is a 10 star not a 5 star. We couldn't believe how gracious Susan & Rob were and we wish we could have stayed longer. The special touches were amazing including pantry and refrigerator items which we didn't expect. They thought of everything to make your time there so comfortable. We can't say enough about all the amenities. They thought of everything to make your time there so comfortable. Thank you so much for a wonderful time and for being so generous. Hank & MaryAnn
Thank you so much Hank,
We loved hosting you, Mary Ann, the kids and grand kids. You all were perfect guests.
Having a place where families with all ages can come together is what we love, and having a comfortable place for all is important.
Susan and Rob have a beautiful home!!
My wife, our son and I loved staying at Susan and Rob’s home!
Our son is new to Fort Bragg and he suggested we look for a really nice home to rent so that when we visited from Maine we could all relax in a city that everyone told him is safe, fun, dynamic and beautiful.
We found this home and loved it!
Susan and Rob went way out of their way to explain how everything works in their gorgeous home to ensure we were comfortable.
Susan gave us great advice about what to do and where to go in Raleigh. She even checked in on our first day to be sure everything was going really well. Our son had four friends visit and we all had a great time in this home that really felt like home to us while we were there. Great hosts, great home, great neighborhood...great time!!
Sincerely, Fred F.
Thank you so very much Fred.
You and your family were the kindest and friendliest guests. Our neighbors are still talking about how nice and courteous you all were. It was so wonderful of you all to come down from Maine for your son stationed at Ft. Bragg. Being away from family can be so hard sometimes. We loved being that place for you all to come together, and Raleigh really is a great city to visit.
Just Absolutely Wo derful
We totally agree with all the other 5 star reviews that rave about the house, the special touches, and the hosts. This was by far the best place we have rented and it totally exceeded our expectations. Susan was extremely accommodating with our change of schedule on check out day which we appreciated. We hope that our travels bring us back to the area so we can stay there in the future. Thank you Susan for everything!
