    We are a large family and have made many trips together, and stayed many places, but none as accommodating as Kate's lovely lakefront home! This property has a beautiful view from all the windows that face the lake! The two bedrooms with the king-size beds have big windows where the serene lake view greets you each morning! The kid's bunk room is adorable. My two kids 12 & 13, loved it! The downstairs game room/living area was perfect to accommodate kids or even another family. I loved that there were two entrances, one on each level. The loft bedroom was a great option for our oldest daughters who could only come a couple of days but still felt like they had their own space, including their own dedicated bathroom The house is so fully stocked, it left me making a list for my own house when I got home! The home is furnished in such a way that you feel like you are both at home and at a resort at the same time :) Extra blankets in every room and bedroom, spices in the cabinet, games to play, it has it all! Outside, the property is laid out with two beaches (one cove-like beach that felt like it's own little resort beach!), a beautiful boathouse and a large yard. My husband and son fished every day and caught plenty :) Overall, this house was exactly what our family needed and we had an awesome week! I would highly recommend this home!

    A great location and house set up! Kitchen was well stocked - we lacked nothing needed. And even surprised to find things we didn’t expect to be there. A sweet welcome gift and Kate was wonderful - responses were quick and a call before arrival to ensure we knew the ins and outs of a stay at her lake home! Definitely plan to return!

    We just love Lake Gaston. Kate was very prompt with return messages. The kitchen was well appointed. The location is great for access to the boat launch, main lake and gas. Bringing a wagon was key for ease of bringing items to the boathouse.

    This was the perfect spot for a week of disconnecting. The house was well stocked and decorated- with many little touches. The lake was easily accessible and we spent most of our time on the dock.

    The owner was super quick to respond to any concerns. The house is well decorated, which makes you feel at home. Bring a tailgating/ sports wagon to get to the dock. But once you get to the dock, it’s near perfect.

    Truly fully stocked!

    Kate was awesome with her communication and she has really thought of everything you may need for the stay. Kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of comforts for your stay including things like laundry baskets, hooks, pillows and blankets. Even the little desk by the window facing the lake was nice to do a little work at. Not at all a ding and nothing that can be done by the owner, but the only thing to be aware of is that there is really nothing else to do in the area besides the lake. There was a winery that some of our family members went to one day, but that is it. That may be a positive to some reading the review, but for us personally, we like a little more in a vacation area.

    Just like a dream! Very homey and comfortable. Kitchen fully stocked with excellent cookware. Beds were very comfortable. The lot is very large and very private. House had a place for everyone to gather together and a place for everyone to separate and have their own space too. We were quite comfortable there and not quite ready to leave! The property manager was friendly and accommodating too!

    My family enjoyed our spring break at Wine Down. The house was very clean and well stocked. Kate is very responsive and detail oriented. We enjoyed the location along with kayaks, fire pit and time on boat. The house has anything you may need for your stay and is very up to date. We are usually beach people but have fallen in love with the lake life as well.

    Kate contacted me right away when I had questions about the property and the amenities. The directions were fairly straight forward and when we walked in the house we were all so happy to find such a welcoming and wonderful family space. Our two fifth graders needed to do virtual school on Friday and the internet speed was blazin' fast with great connectivity. We all had electronic devices and never had any issues. The main kitchen was perfect and well stocked with everything we needed to cook all of our meals. I am a snooty snooterson when it comes to drinking water, and the water and the ice cubes from the fridge tasted great! The couches were all comfortable and there are a ton of soft blankets for snuggling. Our kids loved the downstairs playroom, with kitchen!, and could watch their own programs and play foosball without disturbing the rest of the house. We used the kayaks -- there are a lot of life vests to choose from, and made s'mores in the outdoor fire pit. Due to a few comments from previous reviews, i did ask Kate about the potential causeway noise, and she was very honest regarding sometimes hearing trucks and motorcycles. This is only an issue when outside, but it was distracting when trying to have some peaceful quiet time while sitting by the lake. During the summer months the road is probably busier BUT the lake activity would be so much busier too, so I don't think you would notice as much. The Boat House/Dock is lovely too--made us wish we had a boat! Thanks Kate for letting us stay in your wonderful home : - )

    We had a wonderful, peaceful time with friends and family over Thanksgiving week. Thanks to Kate for excellent communication, having the house stocked with literally everything we needed, kayaks for the kids, the 2000 piece puzzle that we completed and being attentive to all questions we had. It was a week to remember! We would recommend this house highly and we hope to come again.

    We enjoyed our stay @ Wine Down! We had four adults and our 4 month-old son and we had a ton of other room. This house would easily fit 8 adults. The area is very quiet & is a beautiful setting on the lake. We spent most of our time hanging at the boathouse. Kate's place is ideal for longer-stays to take advantage of cocktail hour on the dock, grilling food + wine.

    We absolutely loved our stay at Wine Down. Kate is the absolute perfect host. She is very responsive and communicative and even gave us a call to check in before our trip. Anything you can possibly think of needing she has. Anytime we wondering if the house has x, y or z we would open a cabinet and there it would be! Absolutely the best stocked and most organized kitchen ever (we had a cook and a baker there). The house itself is clean and cozy with comfortable beds and throws. We spent most of our time on the dock and definitely want to come back when it’s warm. There’s a little bit of something for everyone and we easily could have stayed longer. We’re already planning our next stay with Kate and Wine Down and can’t wait!

    We loved this property. It's on a very open cove and has great views. The property itself has a huge dock and nice walk in shore are that is great for getting in kayaks and paddle boards. The owner, Kate, is lovely and very responsive. The layout of the house is very nice if you have older kids or another family who want their own space. The kitchen has everything you need and is super organized. Would definitely stay here again.

    Wine Down provided us a great family getaway for a week at Lake Gaston. The location - while close to Pea Hill Creek overpass - provided great sunset views every night and quick access to the calm waters of the creek as well as the larger lake. The house was clean, nicely decorated and extremely well equipped - the best that I've ever experienced. The best asset is the dock house which is large and provides plenty of seating options both upstairs and downstairs. The refrigerator worked well and kept our food and beverage cold. There's also a fan on the lower dock which was needed a couple of afternoons. And Kate - the host - was so easy to work with! Highly recommend!

    Our family really enjoyed our week on Lake Gaston. Property is just as described in the listing. Kate was great to work with, was very responsive to our questions and made the check-in/out process really easy. House was perfect size for our group of 8 adults and a baby. Location is great! Situated in a nice cove just off of the main lake, the large boathouse with top sundeck is the perfect gathering spot. We also got some use out of the kayaks that are available to use. We had a lot of rain during our stay so didn't do much swimming but did spend some time fishing from the dock. Caught a variety of fish throughout the week including catfish, bluegill, sunfish, LM bass and even a couple yellow perch.
