    Thanksgiving Holiday on the lake

    Beautiful home inside and out. Was perfect for a quiet relaxing trip away. Our kids loved playing in the leaves. Being from Florida, they don’t have the fun of seasonal changes.

    Our stay was excellent, from keyless check in to our clearly outlined check out expectations. The house is very cute and the outdoor space is fabulous. Strange to say, but somehow the pictures in this listing actually don't do the property justice at all. We were very pleased with the amenities. The kitchen needs a bit of an update, but I suspect that's on the agenda for the owner! The rest of the home has been updated beautifully and fairly recently it seems, and it's important to note that the kitchen provides most anything one might need to cook a meal, which is the most important thing. The house was immaculate and very comfortable and the dock provided beautiful views and a spectacular sunset. We hope to return next fall or summer for a longer stay!

    Great relaxing weekend

    The house is in a perfect location, close to the marina and restaurants, but also tucked in a cove away from the wake. The neighborhood has a boat ramp which was very convenient! The kids loved the downstairs and being able to have their “own space” and play ping pong. And the dock with bar is nice for adults to relax while kids swim.

    Wonderful, relaxing and peaceful!

    Lovely, comfortable and clean lake front getaway with plenty of space to host our kids and grandkids, who visited us from across the cove. Very quiet, low-key neighborhood, which is a true plus for us. Great to have 3 bathrooms! Patio, deck and dock are generous spaces, and we spent much of our time outdoors despite chillier than normal temps. Beautiful spot!

    Our family of four had a great time at Lake Gaston. The house was extremely clean and was more than enough space for us. We loved the patio area and cooking s’mores at the fire pit. Our favorite part was the beautiful boat house on a nice quiet cove. The water depth was great for swimming and we were able to dock our boat there as well. The location on Lizard Creek is excellent with grocery and restaurants nearby. Communication with the owner, Cindie, was great. We recommend this place and would love to stay there again.

    Great house, great location, great lake!

    The stars aligned and my family and I were able to spend 7 fantastic nights at Cindie's beautiful cottage. We liked having the separate living spaces between the top and bottom floor (but only the top has a kitchen). The covered dock was great with ceiling fans and a fridge at the water and room to dock our rental boat (plus there was more room for a jet ski or smaller boat as well). I hope to return one day as we had a blast staying here for a home base and going out to explore the lake by day and having fires by night!

    The location on water was fantastic. Neighbors were not receptive to renters we did not feel. There was no covered slip as listed in description. House had a water leak a few days before vacation. and took out main upstairs bathroom. It was difficult to work around. Owner was very honest about and agreed to work with us. She was very nice. Overall a nice vacation. We made it work.

    We normally do the beach but due to Covid 19 we decided to do something different. This was the best family vacation we have taken! We loved the home and location on Lizard Creek. It was quite, relaxing, family oriented and very friendly neighbors. The house was well equipped for cooking and large enough we all had ample space for private time. We spent most of the day at the boat house playing in the water, paddle boarding and kayaking. The big deck and patio was great for hanging out and spent most evening outside. We were able to dock my son-n- laws boat and leave in the water the whole week for tubing and fishing . We were close to the marina and grocery store. Lights at the boat house would have been nice to sit on the dock in the evening. We look forward to renting again and definitely will recommend to friends and other family. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

    We loved this house, dock and all the included amenities. We enjoyed the paddle board, kayaks, lake floats and pingpong. Also, roasted marshmallows in the fire pit in the evening. The lake was beautiful and already looking forward to returning again. Thank you Cindie for being so great with answering all of our questions. ☀️❤️

    Amazing week at the lake!

    Communication with Cindie was amazing. Always quick to respond to any questions. Property was very clean. There was plenty of room for the kids and adults to spread out and have a great time. Each TV has a Roku with plenty of apps. The spectrum app had the cable channels. They kept the kids entertained near bedtime. We LOVED the dock. Having the shaded area was the biggest plus. (The fridge on the dock did not keep up during the hot days, so you may want to plan on a cooler with ice down there.) We traveled on the hottest week of the summer (so far.) The shaded yard, and dock was always nice! The a/c in the house is amazing. Kept it at 72, and it kept up on the 90+ days. The cove is great for young swimmers. There is not a lot of wake from boats. You only get occasional wake from the wakeboard boats on the main creek. You can jump off of the dock and never touch the bottom! We enjoyed floating the day away when we weren't out boating. We hope to be able to plan another trip here soon!

    My family and I stayed at this lake house in July and we absolutely loved the house. The house, deck, patio and dock area was extremely cleaned when we arrived. Great open floor plan and large downstairs area with plenty of space. The dock was great and has recent composite deck so is easy on the feet and had plenty of floats, chairs, paddelboards and kayaks. We have rented LG houses for years now and this was by far our favorite place we've ever stayed. Definitely will be coming back next summer.

    We had an awesome week at the lake! The house was very nice and clean inside with ample space for two families. The dock and boat house were perfect for relaxing and fishing all day and watching the sunset. The house sits in a cove right off of one of the main creeks which made it ideal for kids to swim. Cindie was great at answering all of our questions and making sure we had a great stay. We can’t wait to return next year!

    We enjoyed our time at the lake - it was a great break and escape. Even with three days of straight rain my kids loved spending their time in the basement and when the rain let up being out on the lake on the kayaks and paddle board. Thanks for sharing your place with us. Cindie was great and always responded quickly to any and all questions I had prior to leaving.

    We had a great time. The house was perfect and in a convenient location. The boat dock was even better. There was close to no traffic so the kids were able to float and paddle board safely. The owner was easy to work with and extremely accommodating.
