"We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for us and our kids that ranged from 10 - 17. The bedroom configuration met our needs perfectly. The teenagers made great use of the space downstairs. The master downstairs has a queen and a twin plus a flat screen TV hung on the wall. They loved hanging out in there, playing their Xbox and watching movies. There was a second TV downstairs too, so the kids were able to watch different things. The game room was fabulous! Hours and hours of fun playing pool, ping pong, and foosball plus a roulette wheel! The house has great insulation so we had peace and quiet upstairs while they had fun downstairs.There are two living areas upstairs, which allowed us to spread out. I was able to set up my laptop and work quietly in the front living room, which had very comfortable furniture. The wifi worked great!
The kitchen was stocked very adequately! We have never stayed in a rental that had everything we needed before. Having a second refrigerator in the laundry room helped out tremendously!
It was wonderful to be back in the cove. Though the bottom of the lake was muddy, the kids enjoyed swimming there at the dock and feeding the ducks. We also caught a few blue gills while fishing off the dock.
The neighbors are FABULOUS! When we had boat trouble on our next to the last day, the neighbors across the canal were kind enough to tow us to the boat ramp. To add to our bad day, our pickup truck had a dead battery, so the neighbor beside us quickly came to our rescue. We could not have done it without them and were so grateful for their kindness. SUPER nice people!
The yard was big and provided room for us to set up our badminton net and cornhole boards.
The lake was busy on the weekends, but during the week we felt like we had the lake to ourselves. When dragging kids behind the boat we didn't have to worry about other boats getting to close to them. They also enjoyed the nearby sandbar.
We will definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting to relax and have a great time on Lake Gaston. If you have kids or if you are vacationing with a big crowd, this house is the best!"
