    Turtle Cove treasures

    We love Turtle Cove and keeping coming back! It is a beautiful waterfront location, in the Northwest Quadrant with easy access to I-85 for cars and Holly Grove Marina for boats. We spent the days skiing, boating and lounging on the dock. The covered deck above the dock is great for shade - with a sun deck on top for the sun bathers. The slip for the boat has great padding to protect your boat - even when high winds came, I felt comfortable with my boat being protected in the slip. The deep water off the dock is great for swimming or floating - with lots of water toys available to use. The owners are very helpful and ensure a great rental experience for their guests. The online guest book sent before checkin provides all the info and is easily shared with other guests. I'm a Lake Gaston regular and this is my favorite property to rent.

    So much fun and relaxing!

    My family and I stayed for a couple of days at this property. The house was clean and spacious. It is located on a cove and it was really nice. Our kids really enjoyed kayaking and paddle boarding in the cove. The boat ramp is really close, which made putting our boat in quick. We would love to go back!

    Great value and experience

    It was a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. My daughter & I stayed for some “mother / daughter time”. We truly loved our stay. The screened in porch & roof top deck were a hit. Everything was very clean and tidy.

    Awesome time with Mom and Dad!

    The house was just as listed! Clean and plenty of room! Great views from atop the deck on the boat house. Convenient boat house power outlets to charge the batteries on my boat as well as making it very easy to get my Dad who is 84 in and out of the boat because I was able to tie off in the open boat slip. Overall the whole experience was awesome and would definitely recommend to anyone!!!

    We were delighted with our stay at Turtle Cove. We chose the house because of the outside living space. This is a family who loves being outside as much as possible. The deck and screened in porch were perfect for everything from early morning coffee to late night cocktails and Charades. The 80 somethings were very comfortable indoors and out. The 60 somethings also enjoyed sitting on the dock roof. One of our favorite things was the enjoyable showers with the whitest, softest towels ever. We were excited to spend a weekend together after missing so much time due to Covid. Your house provided the perfect location for our reunion. Thank you!

    Our stay was great and relaxing. This house had everything that we needed, we loved waking up to the beautiful water view and enjoyed all of the provided water activities. The large screened in porch provided a wonderful gathering area. The only thing that would have been helpful would have been a few more kitchen hot mats and kitchen towels but we made due with what we had.

    The house was excellent and the perfect get away for my adult children, brother and myself. I was greated with wine, chocolates, bubble bath and addtional Easter treats for the rest of the family. The screened-in porch is amazing, as well as, the deck. Plenty of seating and places to chill for all. We played lots of games, kayaked, and rented a boat during our stay. Thanks again for sharing your house!

    Our family absolutely loved our spring break vacation at Turtle Cove and will definitely be back again. The owner, Leah was wonderful to work with and even arranged to have the house cleaned the day before so we could check in early. The pictures on the website really don’t do it justice. In addition to using the kayaks and paddle boards, we enjoyed the large screened in porch and playing the board games out there. There were also close to 100 DVDs to choose from to wind down a little and relax at night. Tehesia, the property manager was also wonderful as well and left us little gifts of mugs, hot chocolate bombs and candy bars as welcome gifts, and went above and beyond to help when anything came up that we needed. Can’t wait to return!
