Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights in January so we could get together with family from Virginia and North Carolina. The house is beautiful, clean and very well-equipped. Plenty of beds and seating space for our group of 15. Although temps were in the 40s we went fishing off the dock and took the canoe out on the lake. We really enjoyed using the large outdoor grill and fire pit, and the kids liked the little playground. The pool table was nice also. Michael, the owner, was very friendly and helpful as was the local property manager/housekeeper. We would definitely stay here again. Be advised, there are very few businesses in Bracey so you should bring your groceries, bait and supplies with you. The cottage was a little hard to find, it's best to get there before dark. Overall a wonderful experience.

Owner's Response: Very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! You are correct that Bracey is a small town with limited options for groceries. When we stay there we normally drive to South Hill for groceries, it is the next exit north on highway 85, a 10-15 minute drive from the lake house. There are several large grocery store chains in South Hill. You will also find a Home Depot there and a number of restaurants. Regarding the location of the Lake house, it is only 2-3 miles from highway 85. I provide turn by turn directions from highway 85 to the lake house. Sorry you had trouble finding it. I have not received that feedback from anyone else. I agree with you that it is always a good idea to arrive before dark when you are going to a place you haven't been before. I hope you come to stay again! Mike

Relaxing Weekend Playing on the Water, Wonderful Main Lake Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time spending the weekend celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary at the lake. The house was the perfect setup for three families. The lake was also a perfect location as we were coming from North Carolina and Virginia. The kids ranged from 5-16 and all had a great time. We brought our boat with us and found that the community boat ramp, which is only a couple of houses down, was extremely convenient. (There is also an area at the top of the driveway to park the boat trailer which was nice.) We also used Holly Grove Marina to gas up the boat, again very convenient. We appreciated the use of the owner's kayak. We had perfect weather and enjoyed boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding without much lake traffic at all. This was our first visit to Lake Gaston and we will definitely return. The owner, Mike, was extremely easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions we had. As another reviewer mentioned, a trash service would be nice (if it is offered in that area).....we just had to remember to take our bagged trash with us when we left. The community trash dumpster was close to the I85 ramp so pretty easy to drop off on our way out of town. Thank you again for allowing us to rent your lovely lake home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Many of the homes on Lake Gaston, including mine, are located in Mecklenburg county. Each town in Mecklenburg county provides weekly trash collection services to residences located within the town limits. Unfortunately, many homes on Lake Gaston that are located within Mecklenburg county, including mine, are not within town limits, so trash collection service is not offered. Instead we are instructed to deposit our household garbage into the green collection containers located throughout the County. Fortunately, there are several of those close to my lake house that are located on common routes that most people travel anyway as they exit the area. I will continue to monitor this and look forward to when trash removal service is offered.

Perfect retreat getaway!

We rented this house for an office retreat. It was absolutely perfect. The owner worked with our needs. The house was clean and neat. It had everything that we needed. Would highly recommend it.

Amazing location and great for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

Our family (7 adults and 8 children) had a wonderful time at this Lake Gaston waterfront home! There is tons of room for everyone and the house is stocked with every kitchen item you need. He views are gorgeous- even from inside the home and we definitely spent most of our time on the dock. So many memories were made! Not much to complain about... But some improvements that would be nice (but not necessary) would be a replacement head for shower in the lowest level, a garbage disposal to use, and a trash removal service. Other than that- loved it and would highly recommend it to friends and family! Thank you!

Lake Gaston, VA, VRBO 473135

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was perfect for our 3 families. Each family had it's own level and bath. My wife and I took the master suite our daughters and families each took a level. Plenty of dining area. The deck was great with the retractable awning. The dock was also great for swimming and fishing. We rented a boat for 5 days. The lake is beautiful and clean.

The grandkids 18 thru 12 voted, the lake vacation was better than a beach vacation. The adults also agree

Spacious Home w/ Amazing Lake Access

  • 5 of 5

Our large family thoroughly enjoyed staying at this wonderful home for a week in July. We spent every afternoon swimming in the lake and saved our evenings for conversation on the dock. The kayak and canoe are in great condition and we rarely saw them at the dock because they were always being used! The bedrooms are well designed for dividing up families with children from those without. Having the second refrigerator and laundry on the lowest floor was great for those that buy a lot of groceries upon arrival. There is absolutely nothing to do in Bracey, so extensive grocery shopping, entertainment and restaurants are all a 10-15 minute drive away to South Hill. The Dollar General is about 5 minutes away from the house for miscellaneous things. If you're looking for an escape of the busy lifestyle, this is your place. If you love water activities, you'll love it! Don't expect to find sidewalks or flat neighborhoods to walk around. The neighbors were very friendly, treating us to a trip on their pontoon boat and pulling us on their dual-tube by jet-skis! Overall, our family of 18 had a great week and we enjoyed spending time together at this beautiful home!
