About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

House Name: “Lake Gaston Hideaway”

Wow! The first thing you notice when you walk in the front door is the lake. There are absolutely spectacular views from everywhere. It's like you are living right on the water. The second thing you notice is that it's a really nice home with high quality finishes and furnishings, and plenty of space for everyone in your large group of family and friends. There are large spaces both inside and out where everyone can get together, as well as plenty of space to spread out when you need some private time.

Hideaway boasts a spacious 4200 square foot floor plan with 3 levels of living space. The 7 bedrooms and 3.5 baths allow you to comfortably sleep 18. Hideaway could easily accommodate more people by many rental standards, but we limit the group sizes so we can maintain our high standards of quality.

Hideaway is the perfect home for extended families, multiple families, and groups of friends or colleagues. You will enjoy spectacular main lake views from decks, the sun deck on the double boat house, and most rooms. People have also been thrilled with the new patio we've added overlooking the lake with 2 covered seating areas, and a huge uncovered area with a fire pit. Hideaway is located in the South West 'Quad' of the lake in Harbor Landing, an exclusive gated community of lake front homes in Macon, NC.

If you are one of the families or groups of friends who come back year after year for your vacation at the lake, we thank you. If you have not yet stayed with us, we hope you will give Hideaway a try, have a great time, and then become one of our regular guests.

Wonderful family gathering spot!

  • 5 of 5

The setting was beautiful. An enormous deck over the double boat slips was a wonderful gathering spot for our extended group of 14. Enjoyed sunbathing, swimming and beautiful sunsets.

The kitchen was well equipped to cook and serve to our large group. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Beds/ accommodations were excellent!

Great place, perfectly layer out. Tons of space. With great views

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome, we had a large group 3 families 18 people and there was enough room for everyone. Did not seem crowded at all. The dock and lake was certainly the highlight. Even on the hot sunny day you could spend time at the lake and dock. There is plenty of shade and sun. Highly recommend

Perfect for a group!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly laid out and stocked with everything you'll need! All the beds were comfortable, bathrooms were roomy, 3 refrigerators, loads of plates, glasses, along with everything else you'll need for a large group!

The location is on the main lake. We brought our boat and had plenty of room to tie up for our stay! The owners are very responsive and on top of their rental game! We will be back to this beautiful home!

Car: recommended

Lake Gaston is truly one of the outstanding lakes in the country! It's great for swimming, boating, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing and much more! It is approximately 34 miles long, one and one half miles wide at the widest part, has over 350 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 surface acres of high quality water.

One of the great features of the lake is that because it is used for generating hydroelectric power, it must be kept within 1 foot of it's normal level by regulation. Because of this, even when surrounding lakes are low due to drought conditions, Lake Gaston is at or very near its normal levels.

Lake Gaston is conveniently located on the border between North Carolina and Virginia between routes I-85 on the West and I-95 on the East. It is about a 1.5 hour drive South from Richmond, VA, and about the same North from Raleigh, NC.
