About the Owner

When our children were small my husband and I decided that we needed a safe, quiet vacation place. The beach was just too hot and the water way too scary for the little ones. We found this lot in 1990 and, on weekends, my husband would drive down from Baltimore and he built the house. By the time we finished, the "kids" were helping!

So many memories with our family! It was quiet, shady and felt safe for our children. This is not just an investment rental property - it is our second home and our goal is for other people to create the same memories we were blessed to have.

Awesome. Pleasantly surprised

I truly enjoyed my stay. I had several friends to visit and the house provided ample space for entertainment. The scenery was breathe taking. I found the house to be very accommodating.

Little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday at the lake because he loves to fish. I found this house and thought it was perfect for us. It was 10 adults and 4 kids. Absolutely perfect! The whole process was awesome and easy. Chris was amazing with working with me. When we arrived I was blown away! The house was so gorgeous and the view was so perfect! You will be doing yourself a huge favor if you rent this home for your vacation. My husband and brother stayed at the deck fishing for two days! The house was fully stocked with everything! I brought my first aid kit (having children you never know when you would need it), but I opened one of the drawers and they had band aids in there! I thought that was so awesome and thoughtful! It was little things like that, that made me love this place. Chris has done a fabulous job with the decor and we absolutely can't wait to come back to this little piece of heaven.

Maybe the best cove on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My family and 2 others with young children ages 3 to 9 stayed at Family Ties and we loved it so much we're now looking for our own home on Lake Gaston! One of the issues is finding another property as amazing as this one! This has everything you could want. A wide but placid cove, away from the waves and chop of the main lake. A gradually sloping walk in to the lake so you can worry less about little ones but deep enough off the dock that the big kids and adults can enjoy the swim. The lot is flat for easy play and there's even a sandy beach that the kids just loved. They played in the sand as much as the in the water! And as if the lot weren't already perfect the home is just what we want with a big, well equiped kitchen, island and huge family dining table, open floor plan and non stop windows, with billiards and play area downstairs so the kids can have their own place to play when the adults are enjoying the 2nd floor and decks. Seriously, you don't need to consider other properties. This one is perfect!

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything our family needed. It was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We had children ages 2-7 yrs old and the shallow water was perfect for them to play and swim in. The guys had a blast fishing on the deck which by the way they caught many different type/size fish. The owner Chris was very responsive! She made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay great. Our family will be coming back next year!

Fabulous Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home with two other families and had a fabulous vacation! Everything was clean and the home was well-stocked. We had 9 kids all together and they all absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back again. We never had a boring moment and felt at home immediately. The house is tucked away in a corner which is great for families with younger children. The area in general was beautiful, we spent time in the lake everyday, rode bikes, did some running and just sat and relaxed. The vacation all around felt magical. The owner, Chris was extremely friendly and a joy to work with. She answered all of our questions quickly and was a joy to communicate with. We definitely will be coming back to this home and recommend it for anyone seeking a vacation where you can completely escape and frankly lose track of time, because I know we did!! Thank you Chris!
