About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

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.

We had a great time the house was very clean and accommodating for our guest, the dock was plenty big to relax, park the boat and jet ski, and to watch and play on diving board. The views of the Lake where amazing. The second floor of dock was unuseable at our time of rental,but the owner assured me this winter it will be re-built, close proximity to boat launch, Washburns marina by boat or vehicle. Plenty of parking. secluded location, and nice neighborhood and neighbors, we will be back Thank You

Absolutely perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my wife and I with our two boys and my parents. The location at the front of the cove was the perfect location to swim, wet a line, and hang out all day. We had a great time talking with the other boaters coming in and out of the cove and enjoyed beautiful evenings and sunsets on the dock. The convenience of being able to walk out in the morning and jump on our boat was fantastic. If you are looking for a million dollar home, move on, but if you are looking for a place which you can hang out on a nice front porch that overlooks the cove and part of the lake, a great location, a 3 bedroom house that is perfect to walk into and relax and you don’t have to worry about the kids not being able to touch anything then this is your place. We are already looking forward to going again. The owner, Jeff, was easy to deal with and a pleasure anytime we contacted him.

Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Amazing location on the lake. The porch was great and plenty of rooms. The house is a bit smaller and outdated, without wifi. But if you are looking to unplug, its perfect.
