We had a great time.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the house, aided by wonderful weather. One of the things we liked about this house in particular was the open living space of the main level (kitchen, living room, dining room - plus 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and the laundry). Everyone was able to sit at the large dining room table for dinner (9 adults and 5 children). Most of the houses we looked at couldn't accommodate everyone at one table.

We had wonderful weather so we didn't need rainy day activities but there is a large selection of DVD movies and games. There is plenty of parking - we had 6 cars parked without any being blocked in. For water play, there were noodles and floats, besides the two kayaks and row boat.

On the negative side, some of the house wasn't well cleaned which was a concern with three babies crawling on the floor - we did some cleaning. We had 2 system issues during our week. On Wednesday of our week, the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen stopped holding temperature in the freezer and refrigerator for 24 hours and didn't respond to a control panel reset or cycling the power. We were able to save the food by stuffing the lower level's fridge. We contacted the owner who's repair person said the entire unit needed to be replaced and they couldn't get a new fridge delivered until the day we were leaving. For some reason, it healed itself overnight and continued to work properly for the remainder of our stay. The second hiccup was that the central air quit for a while our last night there. It came back on after the temperature went up to almost 80 but then it shut off again the next morning.

Great place for family fun

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the Lake House! The lake was a perfect temperature for swimming every day, the house was roomy for our group of 10. The house had lots of toys for kids of all ages in our group (1-8). Fishing off the dock was fun! Wish there were a few more Tupperware for leftovers since we did 95% of the cooking at the Lakehouse. Lots of chairs for sitting outside. Lots of rafts/tubes, life jackets and noodles. Like the kayaks a lot! Sandbox for the kiddies and a fire pit! I would definitely come back again! King Bed was a little squeaky, not too bad. Wish there was another king bed, we have a tall family! Overall fabulous! Like the fireflies too!

Great vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great time with family and friends. The house is decorated beautifully. It is well kept and well stocked with all that you may need. The dock and swim area are perfect for kids and adults. Plenty of lake front for fishing and swimming. The decks all have chairs and tables to hang out at as a group and the big table in the eating area was great to have meals all together. The owner was easy to talk to and sunshine who is the property manager is a delight to talk to. We had a great time and the kids (and adults) were all ready to stay another week!! 😆򑠠thank you for sharing your home! We hope to be back next year!

This property was perfect for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and very comfortable. We rented a pontoon boat for 3 days and could park it right at the dock for easy access. We will definitely try to reserve this house again on our next trip to Lake Gaston!
