Our Lake Gaston cottage is located in a low traffic open cove just off the main lake. Enjoy swimming, fishing, boating or just relaxing in the perfect location. The dock features full sun almost the whole day. Boaters can tie up on either side of the dock. There is a diving board for the gymnasts in the family. Plenty of room for chairs or laying out. The house is located in a subdivision with quick access to a gas/ convenience store. Restaurants and a strip mall with a Food Lion is just a few miles down the main road. Three bed rooms and a pull out couch ensures plenty of sleep area for this small cottage. Two bedrooms feature full size beds and the other bedroom features two sets of bunk beds (sleeps 4). Sorry, but we dont have a TV, internet, or a phone land line (we like the fact that lake Gaston is our get-a-way we can forget the bustle and distractions of the work week or the city). Trust us, you will not miss them at all. Most cell phones have decent signal from the house and dock. There are two bathrooms, one with a stand alone shower and the other with a tub/shower. We are pet friendly! There is plenty of parking so bring the whole family. Welcome to lake Gaston! Enjoy!

About Jeff Perera

Hi, I'm Jeff and this is my family's property. It has been part of our family since the mid eighties. We have seen Lake Gaston grow tremendously. We love the lake and the community and hope you will too.

Why Jeff Perera chose Henrico

This small cottage is the perfect lake getaway. The location is what makes this a true find. Many places on the lake are nice but don't have great lake views or sun most of the day. This location has it all. Its situated in a quiet cove, ideal for swimming, fishing or paddle boarding. Enjoy the sunny dock all day and sunsets in the evening. The house has the basic amenities but you come to the lake to enjoy the outdoors at an affordable price. Room for several so the whole family can enjoy. Located less than 2 hours from Richmond, Va Beach or Raleigh makes the property easily accessible. Also , stores and restaurants are only a few miles away. We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

                                                            I love the house.

                                                            Great view of the lake. House was clean and the owner was very friendly!!! Perfect size and nice open area for dogs.

                                                            Nice Lake - Tired Cottage

                                                            Camille D.

                                                            The lake was very nice, and the home was in a nice neighborhood. The owner very graciously accommodated us on short notice. The house interior was clean but was very tired with long neglected maintenance. Exterior was very sad and tired. Would not use the grill - too gross. The covered porch would be nice, after a good powerwash. If you were stuck inside, their would be little view, since I am not sure the windows have ever been cleaned (dirty, cobwebs, overgrowth). The beds may be comfortable for some, but we did not find them at all comfortable and did not get much sleep.

                                                            Owner was pleasant.

                                                            Perfect Getaway Weekend

                                                            Carrington D.

                                                            The property exceeded expectations, as the pictures in the listing appear to be outdated. The few minor issues (upper deck of the dock was out of order, hot water heater is VERY hot) were disclosed in full by the property owner, and therefore didn't bother us at all. The house was clean, in a wonderful location on the lake (perfect sunset view from the dock), and the property owner was proactive about reaching out to us to provide any check-in/check-out information prior to our visit. Overall, we had a wonderful weekend and this house was the perfect getaway for us and our dogs. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a low-key lake vacation.

                                                            Clean, Comfortable and Wonderful Property

                                                            Travis C.

                                                            Our stay was wonderful! We could not get over how open and comfortable the house was. Cleanliness was not an issue! Everything was immaculate and accessible. Perfect dock for relaxing, the view was beautiful! We spent most of the day swimming in front of the dock. The cove is quiet and scenic. We had a lovely stay and plan on coming back in the future!

                                                            Perfect affordable house and water front lot

                                                            Jeremy R.

                                                            We rented this home for our first family vacation. We have a 5,3, &1 yr old. Perfect!

                                                            Quiet, clean, awesome view

                                                            We had an awesome time! Jeff the owner was very accommodating! Hope to return soon
