We hope you enjoy your stay and make a million wonderful memories while staying at our home. If you are in search of an amazing retreat where you and your family/friends can come stay together (and apart in your own unit)...it doesn't get any better than this! If you're looking for a place to whoop it up and party...our retreat is not for you. Our neighborhood is very much family oriented, peaceful and laid back. As one of very few rentals in the entire area, we are excited to share the LKG experience with you and ask in return that you respect our neighborhood/neighbors.

We rented the house for a few days over Thanksgiving and had a number of family members stay. It was really nice that there were different living areas so that we could all hang out, but also head back to our spaces at times as well. The fact that each house had its kitchen was also really cool. There are TONS of beds and I can imagine coming with older kids would be really fun. We had an issue w the heat (not their fault), and they were very communicative, especially given that it was a holiday. We figured out a solution and it was fixed by Friday. The dock and lake are very peaceful and I'm sure staying in the warmer months is just as much fun - if not more! Highly recommend this property and would definitely come back :)
Stephen was an amazing host and the property was the physical embodiment of tranquility. We were lucky enough to secure this beautiful home for a short company retreat and it was absolutely amazing. We will definitely stay here again!
Our group had an amazing weekend at your property. The house was clean and spacious. The lakefront was beautiful. We had a great time relaxing and spending time together. We would definitely love to come again!
Everything went smoothly
This is an excellent property to host multiple families with lots of children. We were able to put a family with three children in just one room and a family with two children in another room. That still left 5 other bedrooms for individual adults and couples. Lake Gaston is beautiful and even on a 90 degree Saturday did not feel crowded. We were able to tube and fish without getting too close to other boats. The house is in a small cove off of a larger cove. Any Kayaking should be done early in the morning before the boat traffic kicks up, but you can swim, kayak and float just off the dock with little worry. It's a fairly private cove. The house has all the pots and pans you could possibly need, toaster, coffee maker, a good assortment of spices left by other renters. The fishing was also pretty cool. I spoke with the owner about buying a Dock License, which I believe she will get. This will allow any guests to fish off the dock without a license. We were able to hook two catfish over 36 inches long and several smaller fish just off the dock. We also enjoyed MeatUp BBQ which is a few miles away at the Food Lion. I definitely recommend it.
We could not have found a better home for our family as this was the perfect home. Having three separate living areas allowed for my large family to have the space each one needed. When we werent out on the boat we rented, we thoroughly enjoyed swimming at the dock. The location is so great with restaurants and Food Lion only about 15 minutes away. We loved this vacation so much we will more than likely be booking this home for our Lake vacation next year.
Our extended family converged from different parts of the country to what became the perfect platform for some wonderful memories. Prior to arrival (and upon arrival) the owners were super helpful and responsive. Once at the home we could not believe how clean the home was! The accessories (inside and out) were well thought out. The layout of the three connected units gave us sufficient elbow room but not so much we couldn't find people. Visibility of the dock and lake from the deck and yard was perfect and relaxing. Other extras like lots of coffee pots, plenty of fridges, a new grill, plenty of fresh bedding, and even a foosball table made us feel like we were staying at a friend's house. Outside, the use of the various boats and canoes was so fun! Topping it all off, the use of the new fire pit was a great way to spend cool nights. Thank you Steve and Dena for providing such a great place to relax with our family! -Ryan
