Amazing Home, Amazing Vacation
We just wanted to thank Keith and his family for letting us stay at his house for our vacation.
Keith greeted us when we arrived, showed us the features of the house, and even brought us cookies his wife baked. The house was very clean (this is very important to us) and tastefully decorated with themes running throughout. It easily accommodated our party of 14 (12 adults/teens, 2 children) and came well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. We were able to swim, float, and fish (caught white bass, sunnys, and a couple of catfish) right off the dock of the boathouse. The kayaks provided with the house were put to good use by some of the older kids who enjoyed paddling out toward the main lake to see the sunset. The yard outside was perfect for playing outdoor games after a day on the lake (corn hole and an outside ping pong table were provided) and having campfires on the beach were a nice way to wind down the night. We rented two boats for a couple of days (Holly Grove Marina which is close but we highly recommend either Morningstar Marina or Poplar Creek Marina since we had a bad experience at Holly Grove) and were able to dock them at the house without any trouble. The fishing on the lake was very good and all of us had a great time tubing (especially during the week when there was less boat traffic)
The house is also conveniently located on a small cove about 5-10 minutes off of I-84 which allowed us to do some day trips to Richmond for White Water Rafting, Durham for Paintball, and Williamsburg.
Overall, we had a completely wonderful experience. Keith was very easy to work with answering any questions we had and he returned the deposit within 2 days of us leaving. We have rented many houses over the years from VRBO and this was definitely one of the best. Thanks again.
As the owner of the property, I had the distinct and rare pleasure of meeting the tenants upon their arrival. I was immediately impressed with their generous kindness and enthusiasm. They were very easy to talk to and were a true pleasure as tenants of our home. I would definitely recommend the Ruth group to any other property owner but I would definitely prefer that they return as our renters again in the future. Thanks for a pleasurable experience and for taking such good care of our property. Take care and please come back.
Jewel of the Gaston!!
What a great property. The owners were fantastic, accommodating, and easy to access with any questions or concerns. The home is beautiful. Period. Two living spaces were perfect for our group, which included three families, and 7 children. The kitchen is fully stocked, TV's in every room (although used very little), and a perfect dock to sun bathe, fish, swim, dock your boat, and party!!
Fishing was good. Largemouth bass and catfish were our targets, with success on both. Late night fishing was good with catfish hitting on chicken livers and worms. But the real fun was the home, accommodations and boating activities. Between the awesome pool table (rainy day fun), the outdoor covered patio ping pong tournaments, and the kayaks were more than enough to keep our large group entertained and active.
The lake is large, and boating/tubing was phenomenal. Boat traffic is a little hectic during the weekends, but middle of the week was little to notice. Windy days will make a small boat a bit challenging, but mostly it was a good time.
The house is good for parenting. You can keep an eye on the kids swimming from most points of the property. Plenty to do if it rains. More than enough if the weather is good. We had plans on traveling, but after arriving, we only left the property to check out a few local diners and dives. Good stuff.
Overall, a great rental. Good luck catching the lizards (skinks), which we did catch a few!! Great for a few families. Bedrooms and bathrooms a plenty. No sand, just a nice tile floors, great views and family fun.
Thanks again to the owners. You did a great job in prep, and execution. Well done.

What a wonderful place to stay!
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had a wonderful time. The house was immaculate when we arrived, and we found everything we could think of in the well-supplied kitchen. The furnishings were elegant and tasteful, the bedding was very comfortable, and the towels were luxurious. We enjoyed all the extras – ping-pong table, pool table, kayaks and the assortments of chairs, loungers and rockers. We really enjoyed our week and will be looking for a repeat soon!
We loved our stay so much ...relaxing, beautifully furnished, on the lake, and had everything we could want. Plenty of things to do and the kitchen was completely stocked. Thanks so much!!!!A great getaway!
Wonderful vacation spot and beautiful home!
I can't say enough about what a beautiful home this is. Well furnished and great location. Kids loved the kayaks and paddle boat. We rented a boat while there and a jet ski. The owner is very responsive and courteous. Highly recommend this property.
What A Treasure!
This is a beautiful home on a quiet cove with an amazing beach area for all ages to enjoy. My family (16 of us) loved spending afternoons and evenings on the dock socializing. Tubing and kayaking were the favorite water sports. Fishing was fantastic for the boys and their dads. "Reel Livin" provides awesome accommodations with an unexpected fully equipped kitchen. Next year we vacation in the mountains but hope to return to Property 949184 in 2019. We were so fortunate to find this treasure on-line!
