About the property

6 Bedroom, 6 Bathroom Custom Built Lakefront Vacation Property

Looking for an escape to the lake? Whether you need a week or just a weekend, we have just what you are looking for. This lakefront custom built home has unobstructed lake views from the main floor with a glass rail system surrounding the veranda. With 6 bedrooms 4 full baths and 2 half baths, there is plenty of room for everyone. There are two screened porches, one off the dining room, great for the group and a private one off of one of the master bathrooms that makes a great private get-away.

There are two master bedrooms with queen size beds and private bathrooms located on the main floor, along with main living areas; entry from the four car carport is on the main floor. We have a well stocked kitchen, huge living room overlooking the lake, and an extra large dining room table. Outside downstairs has a covered porch with picnic table and plenty of seating in the shade for watching boating, swimming, or yard games.

We have an abundant “game closet” including, among other things, a kickball, a soccer ball, and a badminton set. Play in our huge, grassy yard, great for all kinds of games. There is sun and fun galore with a large dock for swimming and fishing and a sundeck on top with lounge chairs for the sun worshipers. The boathouse is equipped with life jackets, noodles, and floats for daytime fun. It also includes an iPod connection, speakers, and nighttime lighting for your enjoyment. If your family enjoys the quiet of evenings around the fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallows for s’mores and singing songs, or telling ghost stories, we have a large fire pit; just bring your own wood. Just a side note, if you have never seen the night sky filled with stars because you live in the glow of city lights, you have got to experience it. It is truly magnificent! If you happen to have a rainy day, we have you covered. There are plenty of board games, card games, a PlayStation 2, DVD's, wireless internet and our personal favorite, karaoke.

The “Lake Escape” is located in Tanglewood Shores Golf and Country Club, just 6 miles off Interstate 85, Exit 4 in southern Virginia. Your rental includes access to the recreation area which includes a boat ramp, beach, roped off swimming area, children’s playground, grills, picnic tables, covered picnic shelter, volleyball court and basketball court. There is access to the community swimming pool and 9 hole golf course for an additional cost. Grocery stores, a marina with outdoor dining and boat rentals, local restaurants and Rosemont Winery are only a short drive away.

Come find your “Lake Escape” at Lake Gaston. Make some memories.

About Faith Edwards

In 1996 my parents, Cindy and Eddie Edwards, purchased the lot and in 2002 decided to build the house we have today. My mother custom designed the house and my father built it as a place for our extended family to vacation together. As all of the kids got older, Lake Escape got used less and less so they decided to rent it out. If we couldn't enjoy it, someone should! When they decided to rent it out, I was going in to college to get a degree in Business Administration so they made managing the property my little project. With all that being said, I grew up in this house and I believe I could answer just about any question you may have so if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask! I look forward to working with you!

All of my family enjoyed the opportunity to share time with each other at your lovely home. We had kids from the age of 4 to 68!! Even though we had an all day rain day there was so much to enjoy...from watching the rain while visiting in the screened in porch to playing board games. The home provides plenty of open and private spaces for all to enjoy. We have been renting Lake Gaston homes for 8 years and this was voted best pick. The fully furnished kitchen was greatly appreciated for all that prepared family style meals for a large group. The in ground fire pit was so fun to roast our hot dogs to making s'mores. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great property - big enough for our whole big family!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, lots of room. There were enough bedrooms and bathrooms for our family of 13 adults and 7 children. We even had 4 guests visit during the day, and we had enough room for them. The kids (& adults actually because of the shade) loved the beach area. They loved going down the slide and digging in the sand. They were sure they found dinosour bones! Some of us golfed at the 9 hole course, and that was a great bargain and lots of fun. Card playing and games in the evening completed the perfect day!

Nice relaxing week at the Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Lake Escape exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 19 - 11 adults and 8 children under the age of 13yrs. There was plenty of room for the family without feeling like we were tripping over each other. The house was clean, the kitchen well stocked for cooking, baking, and grilling (we did all three), and there were lots of extras (toys, games, magazines, books). We enjoyed roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, hanging out in the hammock, playing wiffleball in the back yard, and walking to the beach area for swimming with the little ones and beach volleyball for the others. The older kids enjoyed jumping off the back pier and taking the paddle boat out on the water. There were plenty of life jackets for our use and kick boards in the boat house to make the moms and grandmas in the group feel more comfortable. We also appreciated the filtered water in the fridge and the use of the washer/dryer. Faith was quick to respond to any questions we had during the week and the check in and out process was easy. Thanks so much for providing your home for a great week away with the family! We hope to be able to come back again!

Beautiful, relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Your home was exactly what we needed to be able to get our entire family away for a long, long weekend. The view is amazing, the yard was perfect for the kids to be able to toss baseballs, play soccer and throw the football. Thank you for being flexible on our dates and also for being so responsive. Everyone had a great time, even my wife loved your kitchen and was able to prepare family-sized meals with very little effort. Thanks!
