About the property

New Listing! Beautiful deep water view! Pets ok, linens/towels on request

This beautiful very private house is just off the main lake in a large cove within visible distance from Eaton Ferry bridge and shopping centers. It has one of the best views/locations on Lake Gaston! Bring your boat or jet ski and keep it in the double boat house with a large top sun deck. Being in the main cove has huge advantage over main lake - even when there is a lot of wind/chop on the main lake, it is very quiet in our cove. Also there is not much traffic, so you don't have to worry about someone running over your children when they swim off the dock.

Pontoon boat and/or jet ski is available for rent at a reduced rate compared to marinas. The water at the end of the dock is 5 ft. deep, perfect for diving/swimming. There is also a community picnic area less than half a mile away with private boat ramp and sandy beach/grill area. For those who are attached to civilization/technology even on vacation, will be happy to know that there is fast WiFi internet and satellite TV. House has two kitchen/dining areas, one upstairs and one downstairs, perfect for multiple families. Most bedrooms have unobstructed views of the lake (no trees!). Backyard features nice flat grassy lot suitable for games/outdoor play (cornhole set is provided). There is also a stone fire pit ready for roasting marshmallows. Large gas grill on the deck makes cooking easier.

Kids will enjoy canoeing to a small island short distance from the dock, perfect for exploration/play time.

The house is conveniently located in a small cozy neighborhood only a short drive from I-85/I-95/US1 and US401. Also close to shopping and restaurants (approx 10 minutes). Two very nice restaurants on both sides of Eaton Ferry bridge overlooking the lake are accessible by boat/pontoon, and are only 7 minutes away!

Linens and towels can be provided for your convenience for a small additional fee. Two kayaks are available for rent at a small fee. You can also bring your well-behaved dogs (<120 lbs) with you (upon owner's approval).

Early check in and late checkout options are also available at an additional cost, subject to availability (check with the owner).

Family vacations only please. Memorial week is 5 nights minimum please.

Wonderful home, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Christmas holiday for 4 nights. There were 7 of us plus 3 dogs. There was plenty of room for everyone. The house is beautifully located on the lake with wonderful sun all day long. There are 2 full kitchens, one upstairs and one downstairs. The kitchens are fully stocked - from an abundance of silverware, pots and pans and dishware to spices and refrigerated condiments and paper products. Rooms were clean and inviting. We brought our own linens to save a little money.

The owner could not have been nicer! He was extremely responsive to questions I had before renting. I never waited more than about a half hour for a response.

While we were there in the winter and it was pretty cold that week, this place would be even more wonderful in the warmer weather. The boathouse has a sunbathing deck as well as a covered, shaded area to sit under to keep cool.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently had a wonderful stay at this house for our family Thanksgiving get together. We had 5 kids and 5 adults and plenty of room for all. There are two kitchens and two living rooms which made it perfect for cooking for our large group and for splitting up when the kids wanted to watch a movie. There is cable and Netflix available along with WiFi, so still the comforts of home and technology. Sitting around the fire pit at night was very relaxing. We also had 3 dogs with us and were grateful to find a house that would take them for a small fee. I was glad that the back porch downstairs had a gate on it. The property is not fenced in and a couple times there were some neighbors dogs that were roaming. Freaked us out a few times but our dogs were safe on the porch. When they were with us in the yard it was also easy to tie them to a tree. The dock was beautiful to sit on. The beds were comfortable. Plenty of dishes and silverware for all. We all had a great time!

A Piece of Heaven

  • 4 of 5

Our family just spent one of the most relaxing weeks at the lake we have ever spent! The home was perfect and very clean! We had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the view overlooking the lake was amazing to wake up to. The upper deck of the boat dock was a popular hang out for us. The girls enjoyed the lounge chairs and the unobstructed view of the lake. The Dmitri and Olga were very easy to work with and even allowed us to move their jet ski to make room for the two bass boats that we brought with us.

The steps into the front and back of the house were difficult for my elderly mother and myself due to bad knees, but once in the house it was a great place to be. The deck was big and is where we spent most of our days, watching bald eagles over the lake.

I highly recommend this home!! Be mindful of the steps, but enjoy! We hope to return again next year.

Perfect Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very relaxing vacation. The house is awesome. Large comfortable beds, central a/c, plenty of bathrooms and 2 kitchens. The view is fantastic and my husband was able to use the boat lift for his bass boat. You can tell a lot of thought has been put into the decor and overall presentation of the home. Beautiful!
