Summer Breeze on the Main Lake

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Located one hour from Raleigh, NC and Virginia Beach, VA and

three-four hours from Maryland and Washington, DC you can enjoy

swimming, fishing, sunbathing, and boating on Lake Gaston. Lake

Gaston has 350-miles of shoreline. It is 34 miles in length and 1.3

miles across at its widest point.

You will always find a prevailing breeze on this large dock located

on the main lake. 18' depth at end of pier means you will never have a

problem with boating access, swimming, and hydrilla. This small cove

also ensures boat will be secure from those sudden storms! Outriggers

are available to secure your boat plus plenty of cleats to secure

more than one boat. Fishing is excellent at Lake Gaston. Bass, perch,

catfish, sunfish and crappie are just a cast away. This dock is

located in one of the best fishing areas of the lake! Boat ramp is

located only one mile away. The dock is only a short walk from the

house with a very gentle slope.

Our one-story house is extremely comfortable with excellent views of

the lake from inside and outside on our large deck. There are three

bedrooms - One queen, one double and one with two twin beds. All

bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans and linens are provided.

Two futons in TV room and another in living room add space for six additional guests.

Kitchen is equipped with all small appliances, dishes, and pots and

pans. You also can prepare your meal on our gas grill on the deck

overlooking the lake. You never have to miss the action!

Lake Gaston is in a rural area but we are fortunate to have a Food

Lion located only four miles from the house. On the weekends, less

than one mile away, is the Lake Gaston Flea Market. Great bargains

and produce!

Can't leave your pet at home? Dogs are welcome! House is equipped

with dog door for easy access to the outdoors plus there is also easy

access for dogs to the lake itself. (Additional non-refundable

The property was depicted truthfully. The manager and owners were both very pleasant to work with.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean upon our arrival. The house does not have a "WOW" factor like some other home but it does have a awesome view of the lake from both the dock and the deck. It is appropriately priced. The house was modest but well equipped and allowed us to bring our dogs. We had some very minor issues that were quickly taken care of by the owners. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will likely return again. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Bang For Your Buck

  • 5 of 5

The house, boat dock,and over all property were great. Candy was very helpfull and answered all questions thoroughly. Summer Breeze is in a perfect spot close to boat ramps and marinas. The only slight downfall is if you have younger kids there is not a sandy beach area with this property.This was not a downfall for us as we do not have younger kids. Our whole experience from when I first contacted Candy until we departed was excellent.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great remarks! We had looked at other properties with sandy beaches but found that hydrilla could become a problem in shallow water. We decided on deep water and life preservers for little ones.
