3 BR, 2.5 BA. Basement with pool table and more sleeping!

Located at the beginning of a cove with a sandy beach, Sandy Shores offers an outstanding main lake view. This newly renovated home (June 2016) offers two levels, a patio, deck, dock and new landscaping. Main level has an open floor plan with kitchen, dining and great room with a 55" smart TV and DVD player. There are 3 bedrooms, and 2 baths. All three bedrooms face the lake and access the new deck.

The living area has an L-shaped couch, a brand new (2018) queen sleeper sofa, and a small love seat and chair.

The lower level has an open room with an A.M. kitchen (sink, refrigerator, microwave) and a

breakfast bar with stools. There is a sitting room with a 55" smart TV, pool table, half bath and day bed with trundle. One couch also pulls out to a double futon like sleeper, and we have a single blow up mattress available for your use.

You can access the lake, deck and dock from this first floor. Part of the shoreline has a natural sandy beach for everyone to access the water. You may use the dock and slip. The master bedroom has a King bed and a single pull out sleeper/chair, and the other two bedrooms have Queen beds. High speed internet. No Smoking. No Pets. Four TVs connected to Direct TV.

The dock has a boat lift (6,000 lb capacity) and a jet ski lift which can be used at your own risk. There are two smaller kayaks for use as well.

Also note: I just looked at the satellite picture - that was before we had landscaping and cut many trees down to open up the view.

I have been asked often about the dock and the depth of the lake. We are in a cove. The depth off our dock is over 6 feet and quickly goes deeper. You can dive and jump off the dock, but not off the boathouse.

We have a boat, and the boat house does not house a pontoon boat (which can be tied up to the dock), but houses most other boats.

Fishing off our dock is decent - smaller trout and bass, some larger cat fish. this is in front of the dock. You will often see fisher men come into the cove to fish.

We are also asked often about a boat ramp. We have an accessible boat ramp in the neighborhood which is about half a mile from our house. We sit on a little more than an acre, with perfect space to tuck your trailer away for the weekend or week.

About Leslie Stoudt

I am from a large family - my mother is one of 12, I am one of 4, with 4 kids and 4 step-kids! I love my children, husband, and traveling!

Leslie Stoudt purchased this House in 1979

Why Leslie Stoudt chose Littleton

My mother is from this area. With 12 siblings, she wanted to retire near her family. They built this house in 1979 and hoped to retire. My father passed in 1989, so mom lived here until recently. We started renovating the house 2 years ago and it is now a lovely property for family and friends to enjoy. Everything in the house has been renovated and is new (or new to us!) From brand new couches, to all new flooring, to a beautiful kitchen with marble counters and island, you will love this as much as we do!

What makes this House unique

My mother grew up in that area, and I have family on the lake and near the lake. I grew up spending my summers there, and after college, moved to Raleigh.

                                                      We are reluctant to say how much we LOVED this property because we'd rather keep this little gem all to ourselves!! Everything about this rental is amazing!! Leslie is a peach to work with and is so thoughtful! The house is absolutely amazing and has everything you could ever need or want. The view is incredible, the amenities are undeniably the best and the location is great! The house has been upgraded, the furniture is comfortable and the beds gave us the best nights of sleep we have experienced in ages. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about this house! Thank you Leslie for everything!! We cannot wait until the next time we can stay at your beautiful home!!!

                                                      Beautiful Welcoming Property!

                                                      Patti R.United States of America

                                                      We rented this property for the weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday with our grown children. It was the perfect space! Clean and well decorated with lots of natural light with views of the lake from every window. The owners were welcoming and generous with information and well stocked with the essentials. We look forward to our next visit!

                                                      Beautiful View!

                                                      Julie J.Waxhaw

                                                      This was our 2nd time visiting this home and we just loved it! It has everything you need and the owner is incredibly nice and very hospitable. We plan to come back in the summer and enjoy the lake!

                                                      Exceeded our expectations in every way!

                                                      Claire B.Laguna Niguel

                                                      The pictures looks amazing, that's true but the home/view is even better! Our expectations were very high but this home exceeded our expectations in every way. We came from Southern California to a place we knew nothing about to spend Thanksgiving with our two daughters who live relatively nearby. The kitchen had way more than we ever expected. This is more like a 2nd home feel as it is incredibly well stocked. It has all the pots/pans/dishes/cooking utensils, plastic wrap, etc. The home feels like it is home. It has a perfect floor plan for a group. We enjoyed endless hours of playing games as a family in the great room using the 2 couches and ottoman. The neighborhood is called Fern Cliff a few miles from Littleton and Roanoke Rapids the main towns with shopping. The shopping and dining is best in Roanoke Rapids, skip Littleton. The home has 3 beautiful bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs with all hardwood flooring, tile in bathrooms. The bedrooms each have an outstanding, out of this world unobstructed view of the lake. The beds here!!! They are the most comfortable beds ever!! They are brand new too!! The 2 upstairs bathrooms are completed updated and new. The downstairs has a bathroom, kitchen and a huge area including a pool table. This home has a ton of windows and light. It is sunny and bright with floor to ceiling windows throughout. If you are looking for solitude, the home is set apart from the others and is incredibly quiet and peaceful. I think this property has the best view up here at Lake Gaston located on a quiet cove. The orientation of this home is superior to most and is more upgraded than the endless others I checked out online. We loved the view from every room!! I would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves in the area again. Thank you Leslie for your quick correspondences and for answering all my questions. Thank you!! This home is lovely!!

                                                      Amazing stay. Loved every second here!

                                                      Diane A.

                                                      Beautiful home, well decorated, comfy. Great amenities. We had a wonderful time and would stay again.

                                                      First of all we will be back! We decided on Lake Gaston to celebrate my husbands birthday and this was the perfect house for 2 families with 2 newborns under the age of 6 months. One family was coming from Virginia Beach and I'll fami One family was coming from Virginia Beach and Out family from the raleigh / Durham area. We had soooo much space to spread out and the house is well maintained. The renovated kitchen and bathrooms are perfection and great for entertaining. My husband and his best friend had a great time fishing off the dock that was a short, well lit walk from the house. The tackle shop was about 15 minutes away and the 3 year old loved it.

                                                      The deck was a favorite for the ladies as we were able to roll the strollers out and catch the sunrise and sunset on the lake.

                                                      The kitchen is fully stocked with every cooking utensil you would need for very large groups, and even children.

                                                      While fishing we met a nice neighboring family which was nice.

                                                      Perhaps the most comforting part of this listing is the homeowner Leslie .We had questions about the property and she was very prompt and honest with her response . She really wanted to make sure that our stay comfortable as possible.

                                                      We see ourselves looking to book this property A few times each year !

                                                      Fern Cliff is a great neighborhood. There are a lot of small streets throughout the community. We are the end of a road (Fern Cliff) so there is very little traffic.
