Welcome to Casa del Lago where you can enjoy the best vacation Lake Gaston has to offer.
This is a private location that allows you to enjoy your vacation any time of year, even while concerns of isolation continue. You can enjoy the water, amazing views from everywhere, relax, and have fun all while self-isolating.
Casa del Lago is both comfortable and beautiful, located on picturesque Lake Gaston - a fantastic place to get away, relax, enjoy nature, and have fun. Every level of Casa has stunning views of the lake with porches on all 3 levels, including a screened-in porch. It is just steps away from the water with easy accessibility and a gradual slope to almost 140 feet of lake frontage! We have a brand new, large dock located in a protected cove so your family can swim without concern of boat traffic. It has a large swim platform you can swim/jump/fish off of and an upper sun deck for you to enjoy the sun and incredible views! It also has a jump gate and platform for extreme fun. You don't need a boat to enjoy this lake as we provide Kayaks and Stand Up Paddle Boards for you to get out on the water for further fun in the sun and nature. If you bring or rent a boat, we are very blessed to have over 14 feet of deep water at the dock and in a cove that protects your boat from wakes as well as a private community boat ramp to launch from. This spectacular home is located on Great Creek, which has a 2.5 mile long watersport lane and is only 8 min from Interstate I-85. You will not have to fight boat traffic here at Great Creek!
Here is what you really want to know as you are looking to rent a large lake home...
First, there's tons of fun to be had, inside and out! We provide water toys in the form of two kayaks and two stand up paddle boards with adjustable paddles and required universal life jackets! We have set up the home with 5 entertainment areas and, of course, we provide high speed internet for everyone to enjoy. The first is the main living room with a 65 inch smart Roku streaming TV with a BluRay/DVD player and Youtube TV. The second area is a cool Theater Room in the lower level with another large smart TV with BluRay/DVD player, sound bar system, Youtube TV, and theater seating! Also on the lower level is a card table area, ping pong table, and electric dart board. Out in the large parking area is a frisbee game of Kan Jam and a basketball goal where you can showcase your skills. At the end of the day, you can bask in the hammock watching the sun set or around the fire pit seeing the lovely night sky fill with bright stars, roasting hot dogs, marshmallows for s’mores, and singing songs or telling ghost stories; feel free to use the stack of wood we've provided or you may need to buy your own nearby if it's run out.
Second, after all that fun, we want to sleep well on vacation! Casa del Lago sleeps 20 comfortably, meaning each room has a fan and everyone has a proper bed - no pull outs! All beds are super comfortable with cool gel memory foam, including the twin beds in the bunk room. This is our family home and we want all our guests to get a great night's sleep. With 6 bedrooms, including two masters, there is also plenty of room and privacy for everyone, the most private being the huge king room with the cool, spiral staircase!
Third, we have tried to anticipate your needs. The kitchen is set up with everything you will need and there is a new, large (awesome!) Weber grill for grilling on the main deck. The deck is very large with a large, comfortable table for outdoor meals lake side.
This is our family's home that we use and wish to share with others. We keep our house to a very high standard so that we and our guests can have the best experience at Casa del Lago. It is a great, fun, well-maintained, and clean property for everyone. We ask guests to treat our home as a home and not a rental. We expect guests to be reasonably clean or clean as you go, be respectful of our home and amenities, and generally treat it as you would your own home. If you would like to see the house rules before you book, please contact us.
Lake Gaston is a vacationer's dream! Located on the border of Virginia and North Carolina, it is roughly 35 miles long and covers over 20,000 acres with 350 miles of shoreline. It has an average depth of 40 feet but is 95 feet at its deepest point. Bounded by the Kerr Dam and Gaston Dam, it is a managed lake and therefore its water level fluctuates within only one foot under normal conditions year round. Lake Gaston is fed by water from Kerr Lake upstream and supplies water to Roanoke Rapids Lake and the Roanoke River downstream. Heading north, you can enter the river portion of Lake Gaston in about 20 minutes from Great Creek. The river offers miles of calm, deep water and straight runs for water sports. And, the water flowing from Kerr Lake is cool and refreshing even in the summer.
With virtually no pollution, Lake Gaston water is almost drinkable without treatment (having the highest water-quality rating in eastern US by both states: High, Level II rating). The lake is popular for fishing and other water recreation such as swimming, boating, tubing, kayaking, water skiing, wake boarding/surfing, and jet skiing. Lake Gaston is well-stocked with game fish, which include largemouth bass, striped bass or rock fish, crappie, sunfish, carp, and several varieties of catfish. Other species of fish sometimes caught are walleye, yellow perch and chain pickerel. A valid license for either Virginia or North Carolina permits fishing from a boat in either state. We give our guests permission to fish from our dock. And don't miss the Rosemont Winery nearby, which is open year-round for tastings and events.

We all loved spending time on the dock - sunshine on the upper level and shade on the lower level. The lake is clean and beautiful. The house had plenty of room for all (11) of us. We have never had to provide our own sheets and towels for a vacation house before, which would have been difficult for those who were flying, but the ones who were close enough to drive brought extras. Guests should be aware that the access to a bathroom from one of the king bedrooms is either down a steep and narrow spiral staircase or out to a porch and in through another master bedrooom. This was not a problem for us. We took advantage of the fire pit, and the outdoor grill. Overall, we had a wonderful week.
We have been to Lake Gaston 5 different years and this was by far the most enjoyable and comfortable stay we have ever had away from home. We look to come back again next year. Thank you for sharing your loving home with us.
The most gorgeous new dock and lake view. The house is clean, spacious and plenty of room for everyone to have their own bed and space. The owners are wonderful, kind and easy to communicate with. Big kitchen equipped with everything. We will definitely be back!
We found the home to be exactly as described. It was in excellent condition and we enjoyed the home and the property. The beautiful dock, kayaks, and paddle boards were great!
went for a girl’s weekend, and had a lovely time. lovely home with lots of amenities in a picturesque location!
Wonderful relaxing time away. Wonderful place to escape to!
Really great time! The hosts are extremely kind and accommodating also very responsive. Their property was very clean and tidy upon arrival and very comfortable. No complaints on my end. I would definitely stay there again.
This was a great location and home. Everything was perfect and the owners were very attentive and available for any question. Love it.
What a delightful property and stay that included everything we could have thought of - great house with lots of space, boating dock, great fishing, movie theater room, fire pit, and so much more. House and accommodations were wonderful. Owners were very gracious and left instructions for almost everything we could think of. We highly recommend. My daughter celebrated her 15th birthday here this week and said that it was the best birthday she’s ever had.
This was just the break we needed. Matt and Carolyn were very responsive and great hosts and the house was fabulous and well stocked.
This property was even more gorgeous in person than in the listing. Very clean with a very simple check in process. Matt was very attentive and hospitable. Plenty of room for a group of 20, and gorgeous lake views. Definitely recommend this property & would stay again.
The house is in an amazing location and is beautiful. Host is extremely kind and very responsive
This lovely home has many amenities. Great kitchen. Everything you need or want. Most bedrooms have lake views. Probably the best two story boat dock around. Great for families. We were five adults and three under three!
The house and location were amazing if you were looking to get away and relax. Matt was great and responded quick to any questions we had. we would defiantly go back again!
This is a great house on beautiful Lake Gaston. The house sleeps 20, and we had 5 adults and 2 children, so it had more than enough space. We prepared all of our meals here, and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pans, and utensils and small appliances. The beautiful dock is where we spent a lot of time. Stand up paddle paddleboards, kayaks, life preservers and tubes provided by the owners gave us a lot to do. Jumping off the dock into the lake was a favorite. The owner was very responsive to a couple of questions we had. It was a great week for us!
We had the most relaxing, idyllic week by the lake. The lake was perfect for swimming— clean water, good temperature and great depth right off the dock so you can jump in from the 2nd level. We had fun exploring the area on kayaks. We saw turtles, osprey, hummingbirds, little lizards, fish and great blue heron. The sky at sunset was lovely, and we enjoyed watching movies together in the downstairs home theater at night. This is a well-loved and cared-for home!
We enjoyed our stay at Case del Lago, and the five kids in our blended family adored jumping off of the top of the boat dock. I didn't think they would be entertained by that as long as they were! There is a lot of space in the house, and the kids liked having their own hangout on the lower level. One of the rooms is only accessible by a really tall, narrow spiral staircase, ... which made it a bit challenging to assign rooms. The view is lovely, and the water is big but quiet. The inside of the house is immaculate, but the outside of the house could use some more work -- screens are broken, deck paint is cracking, and the yard is just mud with no walkway to the deck. Kids didn't seem to mind, though. Owners are friendly and attentive, and very keen to make sure that house rules are followed. Everything is labeled (e.g. use only plastic utensils on metal pans) and inventoried. It was really nice to be able to use the paddle boards and kayaks. We would enjoy staying at Case del Lago again, and are grateful to the owners for sharing their home with us.
This home is wonderful for hanging out with family or friends. The boat dock is a perfect place to spend the day - floating around or jumping off the top deck! The kayaks and paddle boards were great and provided even more fun! Inside the house you will find a completely well appointed kitchen. There was nothing I needed that was not there! The bunk room was a great room for all the grandkids and right out the door was the theater room. The kids loved it! The communication with the homeowner was very good. They really love their home and they want to make sure that you love it too!
This home provided a wonderful getaway for our family and friends, and the location on a large creek just off of the main lake makes it perfect for boating, jet skiing, and swimming. The new dock is amazing and the home is very spacious and comfortable. The owners were super friendly and responsive to all questions, and our family definitely plans to return to this rental!!
We were three siblings meeting for time together with lots of kids ages 10-19. What a wonderful week. The dock was the highlight of the trip. The kids enjoyed the high jump. We quickly figured out the Roku TV and family movies in the evening in the theater room below will be remembered. We also enjoyed family basketball games in the evening. You will not be disappointed. We had a great week together.
Very nice, spacious house, bright open floor plan between the kitchen, living room and dining area all with views of the lake. Matt and Carolyn are very helpful and made everything easy. Ideal location for lake activities. Your friends and family will enjoy fishing off the dock, and perfect swimming area. The home is equipped with a propane grill, fire pit and beautiful views of the lake. Kids loved bunk beds man cave :))) ping - pong table and movie theater seating area.
We loved the double decker dock with jumping platform! Deep water (17ft) in a quiet section of the lake. Excellent spot for skiing, wakeboarding and tubing! House was big enough for our group.
We had a great time at this property. The location was perfect, especially this year with the social distancing requirements. The house was large and well kept, with a fully stocked kitchen making cooking and cleanup easy. The dock was fabulous, spent most of the week relaxing on it fishing and swimming. Home owners were great to deal with and kept us well informed before, during, and after our visit. Would recommend this property to others.
This is the best spot on the lake we have found in our stays at Lake Gaston. The house is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed eating together in the open kitchen area and watching movies in the theater area downstairs. The beds were super comfortable; everyone slept in each morning. The kids and adults enjoyed the ping pong table and decks. The gently sloping lot to the water made access to the dock easy. We fished, kayaked, paddle boarded, jumped off the top dock and floated in the lake. The neighbors were very friendly. Our only wish is that the weather would have cooperated - we had rain and temps in the 60's for 3 days while we were at the house. This is a great house for a family vacation with persons of all ages.
So easy to access from the Raleigh area! The home itself was situated on a great area on the water--the perfect balance of private and ability to watch other boaters. The kids loved the kayaks and paddleboards. The high jump was a huge hit! The owners were extremely responsive and accommodating. There's a nice, very hilly street with little traffic for running/walking. Two family rooms provided plenty of opportunity for everyone to spread out. The kitchen provided everything we needed to cook meals. We loved it and hope to be back soon!
