vacation rental description

Come and enjoy one of Virginia’s and North Carolina’s best kept secrets! Lake Gaston is a clear and beautiful lake located in the Piedmont of southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. It is the last major impoundment on the Roanoke River, and offers excellent water quality and water level fluctuations that are less than one foot. It is 35 miles long and has over 350 miles of shoreline. Lake Gaston is within a four hour drive of Washington DC, an hour and a half to two hours from Raleigh North Carolina and Virginia Beach Virginia.

The property is located in the Quail Ridge subdivision on Lizard Creek, which is a major tributary on the northeast shore of the lake. Lizard Creek is a favorite with skiers and tubers because its water is usually calmer than the water on the main lake. It is also centrally located, has easy access to the main lake and is close (15-25 minutes) to three full service marinas.

A Food Lion grocery, an Ace Hardware, a Subway sandwich shop, and an indoor/outdoor flea market (Friday through Sunday) are all located less than ten minutes from the house. Thursday night, it’s bingo at the local fire hall. Restaurants are scattered around the lake and they range from diner style to more upscale. The closest large town is Roanoke Rapids, and is a 25 minutes drive from the house. There's a Belk Store, Lowes, Penney's, Super Wal-Mart, movie theater, and numerous eateries located there.

Our lake house is a comfortable, Non-Smoking, pet-free, single-level home with everything you will need to make your stay at Lake Gaston an enjoyable one. (Renters are responsible for providing their own bed linens and towels.) We have Cable TV, a video and DVD player (movies are provided), WiFi, board games, books and puzzles...everything that will provide inside entertainment for family evenings or during inclement weather.

Outside is where the real fun is! Our level lot leads to the water and the boat dock, which is the center of lake life. We have a small sandy beach that's perfect for young children, plus the water off the dock is about 5 feet deep which is great for older kids and adults. Swimming, fishing, sunbathing, and relaxing on the glider all happen right there. It’s a great place to view the beautiful evening sky and sunsets. Skiing and tubing can be started right in front of the dock.

A paddleboat is provided, and is a fun way to explore the local waters. There is a boat ramp next to the dock which makes for convenient launch and recovery. There is also a covered boat lift, plus room for a boat of up to 25 foot to be tied up to the dock.

Besides the water sports, fishing is excellent at Lake Gaston! Available species include striped bass, largemouth bass, crappie, perch, sunfish, and our favorite dinner fish, channel catfish. Fishing from the dock is a favorite pastime for both young and old alike. Early mornings and evenings are usually better, but when is fishing not good?  We want to remind our guests that it's necessary to have a NC or VA fishing license, even if just fishing off the dock (obtainable online from the Dept of Fish and Game). 

Lastly, one of the best pastimes at the lake is RELAXING! Whether it be enjoying the view, reading a book, or napping in the shade on our wonderful hammock. There is something about the lake that lets you leave everyday stress behind for awhile. This  is what we most enjoy about our lake house. We invite you to come and see for yourselves.

P.S. Spring and fall are great times to enjoy Lake Gaston. The water is warm, the scenery is grand, and it feels like your own private lake.

P.P.S. We respond to each inquiry within 48 hours.  If you feel that you haven't heard from us, please be sure to check your 'spam' mail...thanks!

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.

We are now home after a great week at your lake house. Everybody enjoyed themselves 24/7, especially me after landing this lunker right off your dock yesterday morning...
