We have now completed our Fifth year of inviting guests to share our Lakefront Home. We have met some outstanding individuals a insight provided by our guests that has helped us improve the experience for each subsequent guest. For those who are planning a vacation for the summer of 2020, understand that calendars fill quickly – many of our guests lock-in dates a year in advance. Remember that Lake Gaston has incredible weather throughout the year - my family was boating in late December this year - with temperatures in the mid-70's... The key to a most successful "get-away" is often in the planning stage. My recommendation is to begin early. This year our home has hosted single couples looking for a romantic get-away, anniversaries, family reunions, and a large number of guests who simply wanted an opportunity to reconnect with friends and family. With this year’s experience as the backdrop, we look forward to working with each of you as you plan your Lake Front Get-Away. Cindy

This property was PERFECT! We had plenty of space and everything we could have needed was at the property. Super short drive to the grocery store and restaurants. Everyone had a wonderful time and we will be back hopefully sometime soon!

Amazing Fall weekend getaway!!
Great house, wonderful set of indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy. The owner has taken time to label most of the house which made it so easy to relax and feel at home. We hope to get back for another stay next year!

Yearly Gal Trip
Each year, a small group of gal friends and I take a trip somewhere. This year we decided to take a trip to the lake. It was a wonderful little getaway for our group...the house was the perfect retreat for us!

5/5 Excellent

Couples Retreat
Your home made our couples trip an amazing experience. With all your home has to offer, it allowed the four of us to come together to enjoy each other but also we were able to enjoy our spouses alone. My previous visits were for my annual girls getaway. I’m so glad our husband’s were able to experience this relaxing and calming environment. Our spouses did suggest adding a television to a bedroom. 😊 We look forward to our return. God Bless You!
