Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our boat and had a great time fishing, swimming and tubing. This unique house was a perfect fit for our unique group! We also found the town of Littleton to be just too sweet. Everyone knows everyone and is very welcoming. Thanks for letting us enjoy the Dome Home for a week!

A Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had three generations for a total of six people staying here for a long weekend and really appreciated all the space and amenities this home had to offer. The kids loved the toys and the large living room. The adults loved that the noise was well contained to the living room and didn't spread from one dome to the other. We got lucky to have a warm February weekend and enjoyed the time outside, sitting on the dock and around the fire pit. The home was well-equipped with cookware, even marshmallow roasting sticks, and outdoor furniture. It was great to have a baby gate and high chair on site. Everything was clean. I'm sure in warmer weather the lake is a lot of fun with the provided floats and such. This is a fantastic place for a family getaway.

Loved the room and everything that was included with the stay.

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Barbara for letting me and my family enjoy your wonderful place. There were 11 people staying, eight adults and 3 children, ages 13, 10 & 5. My grandsons loved the pool table and play area. The dock area was awsome for fishing and swimming. We were lucky enought to rent a pontoon boat, which tied up to the dock nicely.

The kitchen area was wonderful. We had plenty of room for several people to be in there working at the same time.

I only had two small concerns. The loft railing needs a little reinforcment. It's kind of shakey. I tried to tell my grandkids not to lean on it, I didn't want them to break it and fall. The top deck to the boat dock needs a little work. Many of the nails are popping up, so I made sure everyone wore flip flops it they went up top.

The patio and deck furniture were very comfortable. You never had to worry about lugging chairs here or there. The kids love the rafts you provided.

If I am lucky enough to go again, I would definately suggest this property.

Thanks so much again,

The Rose and Roberts Families

Beautiful Home

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Half Moon Hill. My only complaints would be the condition of the dock area, but with a little TLC I'm sure it will be just fine. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home!

We thoroughly enjoyed the house, the lake, and the area! This was our first time at Lake Gaston. Since it isn't that far from us we will definitely be back. This house was in such a wonderful area. Really close to stores and restaurants. So relaxing! Thanks to Barbara for the use of her wonderful home.

Great home, great location! Perfect for families and friends!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over Memorial Day Weekend 2018. We had a wonderful time. The home is everything advertised and then some. We've stayed in many vacation homes and this is the first that had many of the common amenities you would expect at your own home but not in a rental. Spacious, comfortable, and great outdoor spaces such as the wrap around deck, a nice fire pit, a shady gazebo, and of course the double-decker dock. We would definitely stay again!
