This house is a perfect getaway for all ages! With a living room upstairs and a bonus room downstairs (with an extra large couch, ping pong table, and wide screen television), this house allows separate living spaces for everyone to relax comfortably. It is positioned on a large cove that opens up directly to the main part of the lake offering tons of outdoor fun including boating, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sun bathing, and more.
The water is shin deep at the water's edge and progressively gets deeper at the dock (over 5') and drops off even more immediately after making it perfectly safe to jump and dive. Two large screen televisions, WIFI, generous upper and lower outdoor seating, a grill, and a beautiful view gives multiple ways to unwind. The fully furnished kitchen is perfect for cooking any meal.
Multiple outdoor amenities await you at this lake house. The dock and boat house offer cleats and bumpers to tie down your boat safely. Numerous water toys including a paddle board, adult and child kayaks, water noodles, skis, floats, as well as adult and child life jackets are provided. A newly renovated spa-like outside bathroom (with a with a sink, toilet, and rain shower head) adds to this house's convenience when you're outside or playing in the lake and don't want to stop the fun or dry off to come inside. In the evenings you can put your toes in the sand and build a fire in the large fire pit while you enjoy the lake.
There is WIFI and AppleTV on the two large screened televisions, games, books and magazines, and a ping pong table are just a few of the amenities to take advantage of inside. Grilling out on the deck while overlooking the lake is a perfect way to end the day.
A spacious graveled parking area in the front of the house allows for multiple vehicles as well as boat trailers.
All of your linens, including towels, sheets, beach towels, and kitchen hand towels are provided and included. Paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, and napkins) as well as hand and dish soap are also provided. A washer and dryer are available on the bottom floor if needed during your stay.
During your stay you'll have access to the entire house. Upstairs has 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, kitchen, dinning space, living space, and outside deck. There is another bedroom, full bathroom, bonus room/spacious living area, and outside deck on the bottom floor. You also have access to a full outside bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower.
The area's only grocery store is located approximately 5 miles from the house. There are various local eateries nearby including a bakery, pizzeria, burger joint, sandwich shop, and an ice cream parlor if you don't feel like cooking or want a sweet treat. There is a nearby gas station that is also accessible by boat if you need to fill up. Several restaurants are accessible by water. Various restaurants offer live music and the city puts on festivals and events throughout the year.
A boat ramp to launch your water toys is about 2 miles from the house.
We hope that your stay is as comfortable as possible as we have tried to think of everything to make that happen. If you need anything during your visit we are happy to accommodate your requests.
We had a great week! The house was perfect for two families. Fishing at the dock for Brim was fun. We didn’t have much luck with catfish or bass this week, caught a few. It was not easy docking the bass boat but we managed to maneuver around the docked jet ski to the bulk head side and dock it there so we could swim. Enjoyed conversations with neighbors 2 doors down building a house. The weather was great! We would stay here again!
My family and I enjoyed our annual Lake Gaston trip at this cute house, tucked away in a cove. With linens, towels, beach towels, in addition to paper towels and toilet paper provided, the kayaks, paddle board and floats were a great addition to have! Lesley and Richard were great hostesses, responsive to messages with quick responses.
A wonderful relaxing week- the house had everything we needed, and the kayaks and paddle board were fun too. We loved it!
We had a Great Week! House was everything we expected, sleeping accommodations were perfect, and kayaks and paddle board were tons of fun on water! Thanks
Our week was very very relaxing. We enjoyed ourselves greatly
Having water toys included saved our trip. Main floor is nicely decorated. Can't get away from the water damage smell in the house. We left one night early... just couldn't take it. Communication with the owner was nice and casual. However, a week after getting back I received a surprised negative review and a claim for damages. To say that I was surprised is an understatement. Things that were claimed and attributed to us were incredible. We didn't break chairs or used wax, yet... my credit card was charged for the damages that we didn't do!!! We booked last-minute over Memorial day weekend with a strong desire to recharge and spend a few peaceful days on a lake.. I should have been more curious why property was available within a week of a major holiday and only had a handful of reviews while being rented for a few years.
The house was excellent, well stocked for all needs. It was clean, all the linens and towels were top quality. We enjoyed the fire pit and loved being able to tie our boat up right at the dock. We’re hoping to make a return visit in the future.
We had a wonderful time at the lake! The house was lovely and well equipped. We had endless fun swimming, kayaking, fishing, etc. Lesley and Richard were very helpful and responsive. This was a much needed vacation for our family and our kids are already asking when we can go back! Thanks for a perfect week.
We had a wonderful stay even though it rained for three days. Home is relaxing and well laid out with two separate living spaces and a great bunk room. All beds were comfortable. We made s’mores, fished, enjoyed the kayaks, boated and just chilling. Close to everything. Beautiful view from the end of the cove and no wake to worry about. Overall amazing stay!!! Would come back.
Leslies place was super clean and very accommodating. We enjoyed the ping pong table and sectional for movies and the kitchen was well equipt. Beautiful view from her loveley deck! We loved beautiful Lake Gaston and the residents were super nice. Only one thing i would suggest is a step ladder for the kitchen as some of the items are stored on the very top shelves. Other than that i would definitely would suggest Leslie's place !
The property was well maintained. The location was ideal, on a quiet street and cove on the water. Water boat access 2 miles a way and boat landing very nice. Provided amenities with ping pong table was a hit, as well as provided paddle board and kayak. Would definitely stay here again.
We had a great time.
This property surpassed our expectations! The bedrooms were spacious, the common areas very comfortable especially the downstairs room which offered a great place for our young grandchildren to play. The kitchen was well stocked! The porch offered a great place to congregate for meals. The lake was perfect with an area so the kids could wade in, but deep enough for the adults to swim. Loved having the kayaks and paddle board along with chairs available. The location was perfect because it was a protected cove, but easily accessible to the main lake. The owner was readily available to answer questions before we arrived and checked in on us through email during the week. It’s obvious they care about their renters! We hope to rent here again next year.
