Summer 2013

Review submitted: June 28, 2013   Date of arrival: June 15, 2013

Dear Carol and Dave,
I just wanted to let you both know what a wonderful time my family and I had at your lake house. We swam, boated and fished all week. My son and I had a couple of very successful bass trips and we all enjoyed the sunset from the deck every evening. As a lawyer, it is very nice to get away and clear my head for a couple of weeks a year and your house was the perfect place. Needless to say, I would be interested in renting it again next year. Thanks again.

Will Rent Again!
We had such a great time at your lake house. It was so relaxing and the kids had a blast. Caught several good size bream (sunfish) and a few channel catfish. We are already talking about possibly renting again next year. We will have to see what our plans are next summer.
Thank you again !

Drawing great memories...

Review submitted: May 20, 2013   Date of arrival: July 14, 2012

Hi Carol!

I hope you are well! I thought you might like to see this picture. My nephew, who is in 4th grade, drew this picture of your lake house at school! I think it is excellent and very detailed, and wanted you to see it! He even drew the little beach area behind the boat house and drew a jet ski in the water! He LOVED it there and talks about it every time I see him! He said he wants to stay there for a month the next time! : )

Take care,

Great Vacation!

Review submitted: September 6, 2012   Date of arrival: July 30, 2012

My husband, our 17 and 12 year old daughters and I stayed at the Rogel’s Lake House 7/28/12 – 8/3/12. We had a wonderful time. The house was very nice and roomy. The pictures on the website don’t do it justice. The house had Wi-Fi and Cable TV – didn’t lose signal once. The house was very clean with comfortable beds, comfy couch, and nice shaded back deck for sitting out in afternoon. The boat dock was nice, we fished off the dock and even caught a couple of fish. There were sunny spots of the boat dock for laying out and shade for those who wanted to stay out of the sun. The weather was great – not too hot which we worried about being so late in July. The lake water temperature was perfect. We brought three rafts with us and spent a lot of time just lounging in the water. We enjoyed taking the paddle boat out a couple of times. Food Lion and a few different restaurants were close, which was nice – giving us options for eating out or eating in. All of the restaurants and the Food Lion were on the main road which was nice, didn’t have to worry about wrong turns or getting lost. My girls and I went Bingo night at the Fire House and even won some money, it was fun!! In closing, we all had a very nice relaxing vacation. Thanks for letting us stay at your Lake House!!

Great Stay!

Review submitted: June 1, 2012   Date of arrival: May 23, 2012

Thank you for letting us share your home with us.

We had an incredibly good time and were really surprised at how wonderful everything about it was.

I do a couple of online vacations each year and most are pleasant and some are a little scary. Your home is at the top of the list and we'd love to come back for a week next time.

Saturday was like a war zone out there! The other days were great with the lake pretty much to ourselves. Your ramp was a real plus, kitchen was real nice, info book complete (and some!) and the deck was awesome to sit back and relax. I'd have to rate yours at the top of the list!

I hope you found the home in the same condition you left it and will let us share it again.

Thanks again.

Super Great Place to Stay and Fish

Review submitted: May 22, 2012   Date of arrival: May 16, 2012

We stayed here for several days and had a fantastic time! Everything was perfect. The house is spotless and has absolutely everything you need. The owners are beyond great and there at a moment's call. The dock was fun to sit on and fish, drink a glass of wine in the evening and just enjoy. There is a paddle boat, boat ramp, boat lift and on and on. Deck of house is huge - great for cooking out on the gas grill provided - home is bright with large windows and sliding glass doors of the living and master bedroom - facing the lake. It is fantastic. We have stayed several place on the lake before but never gone back to any of them - we will be back here that is for sure! I caught a huge catfish from the dock - my husband caught the dock - HA! It could not be better! Loved every minute.

Great Start to the 1023 Season!

Review submitted: May 18, 2012   Date of arrival: April 26, 2012

Hi Carol and Dave,

Thanks for the card. I totally forgot about my security deposit. I guess we had too good of a time!

Definitely good cat fishing off the dock. And although the water was really cold, we had a great time skiing. It actually wasn't that bad because the air was warmer than the water. It work out well. Everyone had a great time, there was plenty of space, and it was very relaxing. Your place is awesome! If you guys ever decide to sell, which I hope you do not, but if you do, please let me know first :)

We really enjoyed your place and will definitely book with you guys again.

Please keep in touch!

I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the little bit of heaven you shared with us! We were wondering if we can reserve a week in April 2012. My wife has Spring Break from teaching and we though we'd get in some fishing. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

We had a wonderful week at your beautiful lake house...perfect place to relax and enjoy our family. We had our two year old granddaughter here and she had a great time...the little shady beach was perfect for her. We had a good time in the paddle boat, catching big fish, roasting marshmallows over the campfire and swinging in the hammock!

Spring at the lake...

Review submitted: June 7, 2011   Date of arrival: April 30, 2011

Hi Carol,
Thank you som much for the use of your home @ the lake!! It was wonderful and the fishing was good. Quite a few 2 lbr's but most were about 1 lb. Upper Lizard Creek seemed to be the best. We are definitely planning a Sept. trip and I will let you know as soon as I confirm the dates. Once again, thank you so much!

P.S. Your home looks great and the lift works perfect...

Thank you for having us share your home. This was a very special vacation for us. We celebrated the safe return of my husband from Afghanistan. We had such a wonderful time fishing, tubing, fishing! This was exactly what we needed. We are looking forward to coming back during next season. You're good people to open your home and hearts to strangers who then become friends...

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our time at the lake. Your place is located perfectly. We were able to play in the cove with the water toys and were on the main lake in a minute. The kids caught several small fish from the dock and we caught a few catfish up by the sandbar outside Outdoor World. Thanks again for sharing your place with us. I am already looking forward to next year on the lake. Andy

Carol and Dave, Thank you, thank you for allowing us to share your home this past weekend. What a terrific place! We had a fabulous time, and the weather couldn't have been better. We've rented 4 lake houses this past summer between Gaston, Kerr and Anna. Your house was our favorite, by far! We would definitely like to return as often as we can. Thinking ahead to spring and summer, do you stay pretty booked? How early should we make our reservations? Do you rent long weekends in the summer, or only week to week? Sorry so many questions, we're just excited to return and want to plan ahead so both our children and families can join us next time... Thanks again, Harriett and Bob

Carol, We had a great time at your lake house--thank you! Our 8 year old son caught his largest fish (catfish) off your dock--super fun for him! And we finally found a tube to buy and pull behind our rented pontoon! The weather was perfect...a bad thunderstorm Thursday night that cooled it off Friday, and a sunny hot day for on the lake Saturday! We loved it and are grateful for the use of your home. Enjoy the rest of your summer. Our kids start school Wed., and it already feels like summer's over...so sad... Many thanks, Mary

We had a wonderful time even with a couple days of rain, that was at the very beginning of the stay and it cleared up for the weekend and was beautiful. We were able to relax and enjoy the view of the lake and my daughter loved the lake as well and going on the paddle boat with us. Thanks again I hope to come back soon.

Your neighbors Gary and Janet were very friendly to us. Your fishing calendar was very accurate, and we are ordering a 2008 one for ourselves. Thank you again! Jenny and family.

Dear Rogel Family, Thank you for sharing your lake home with us...it's a beautiful spot on the lake. We really enjoyed the flat lot so close to the water. And it was great to have the use of the boat life...our boat didn't take a beating like it has in the past. It was a bonus to see the herons, ospreys and bald eagles...we thououghly enjoyed our vacation here!

Carol, We had a great time last week. Your place was great! The pictures don't do it justice. My daughters both caught a fish off the dock within 30 seconds of having their lines in the water! That went a long way in keeping their attention on fishing. We had a great time tubing as well. It sure brought back some very special memories for me. Hope to come back again next year. Thanks again for all your timely correspondence. I appreciate all the advice on boat rentals, etc. Best Regards, Scott

Hi! We had a very relaxing week. Didn't get many fish, but catch or not, fishing is always enjoyable...next time I'll bring more than my canoe. Weekend was non-stop traffic (fun to watch) and then weekdays were super quiet (our preference). Ate at the Kennon House, toured downtown Gasburg and other area tourist spots. You have a great library or reading material which we enjoyed. Wanted to bring the antique desk/bookcase in the master bedrrom back with me but knew you would miss it! Thanks so much for the use of your place...hopefully we will be there next year.
