Dear Vacationer - If we don't respond to your e-mail inquiry WITHIN 2 DAYS, please call Chris at the number provided for assistance.

THE HOUSE is located on a cul-de-sac, in Henrico, NC on the NE Quad on beautiful Pea Hill Creek. It takes two hours from Virginia Beach, two hours from Raleigh, NC, one hour and forty five minutes from Richmond and three-four hours from Maryland and Washington, DC. PEA HILL CREEK is large, has some of the cleanest water on the lake and is mostly calm. However, if you want rough water, the main lake is an eight minute boat ride away. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, jet-skiing, sunbathing, and boating on the lake. Lake Gaston has 350-miles of shoreline. It is 34 miles in length and 1.3 miles across at its widest point.

THE BOAT DOCK is a short walk from the house with a very gentle slope.

At the boat dock, you will find enough cleats to tie up your boat and there is 8 feet of crystal clear water at end of the dock to jump into safely.

A PRIVATE BOAT RAMP is only 4 houses away. There are games for the kids to play in the house in case it rains or for use in the evenings.There is a SANDY BEACH where the little ones can play and build sand castles. Bring your food down to the boat dock. You'll find a table and chairs where you can eat and watch all the lake activities up close, or relax and soak up the sun on one of our comfortable lounge chairs. Fishing is excellent at Lake Gaston. Bass, perch, catfish, sunfish and crappie are just a rod and reel cast away.

The house is not wheel chair accessible to get in or out but from the house to the water is a gentle slope for a wheel chair to easily negotiate.

Our one-story HOUSE is clean and comfortable with excellent views of the lake. The house has Central A/C and Heat. There are three bedrooms - (2) Queens, (1) Double, as well as, (2) Pull-out couch Queen beds located in the great room. So the house can actually sleep 10 people if needed for a night. All bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. Renters supply their own bath towels and linens.

THE KITCHEN is equipped with all your needed appliances, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, and a slow cooker. You can also prepare your meals on our Gas Grill or if you prefer, our Charcoal Grill both located on a large deck overlooking the lake. The main DINING ROOM table inside the house seats six but an extra folding table can seat four more for a total of 10.

FOOD - Lake Gaston is in a rural area but we are fortunate to have a Food Lion, Hamburgers and Hot dogs, Pizza with delivery and Ace Hardware located only 5 minutes from the house. On the weekends, less than one mile away, is the Lake Gaston Flea Market. Great bargains and produce!

Renters supply their own towels and sheets. Sorry, NO SMOKING NO PETS.


Good Evening Chris,

We had a BLAST! Wish we were there right now!! As I mentioned when we

spoke last Thursday evening, we love your place. The house and location (we

love Pea Hill Creek) are great. We had a great time and hope to spend some

time (perhaps 2 weeks) there next summer. When do you begin booking for next year?

We're attaching a photo of the family so you can 'meet' the Stephenson's.

Thanks again.

A and J Stephenson

Hi Chris,

We had a fabulous time at the lake! Your house is at a great location on

the lake, and we liked that we could swim from the dock. This was

probably our most restful vacation.

Denny did go golfing a few times at the local golf course.

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Ginny S.

Lake house was AWESOME! We had an amazing time and hope to return sometime maybe even this summer if it's not already rented out. Thanks,

Great location and view!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a weekend getaway and had a great time. The house is right on the lake and the views were wonderful. The dock is a great place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.

the sunrise lake house at lake gaston

  • 5 of 5

Such a good time at the Sunrise Lake House. Very!!! nice inside, we spent more time inside then we wanted because of the rain but just being there with our daughters made even the rain bearable. When we could be outside the view from the back deck was spectacular. As an added bonus we saw eagles, ospreys , blue herons, didn't see but heard coyotes and owls. We were only there for a couple of days but enjoyed every second of our time there. Larry, Rose, Christina and Lauren

Great For Children

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We have rented this lake house 2 years in a row for the 4th of July Week and Love it for many reasons!

One, that was very important to me was the fact there is a SANDY BEACH:) if you have small children, which I have 4 small Grandsons, you know the importance of having clean shallow water with sand for the kids to play in, and it is shaded most of the day. Less sunburn.

Yet, the water at the dock was deep, very convenient to pull our Master craft up to and load. We have a great time fishing and jumping off the dock, also. The boys caught several catfish, which was a huge deal to kids 2, 4, 6 & 8 years old.

The View Is Awesome!

It's very close to Marina, and Food Lion.

The neighborhood was very peaceful, and safe.

The Boat ramp made it very easy to put the boat in and out, although we left it in the water most of the nights, because of its location in the curve of that cove, the water wasn't rough at all.

Chris is Great to Rent from.

The house was very clean and well maintained. Everything met or exceeded our expectations.

Weekend at the Lake

  • 4 of 5

Words cannot even begin to explain the VIEW from this home! Absolutely gorgeous! The Harvest Moon Friday evening over the lake was breathtaking! The location of this home is by far the best with close proximity to the Marina and Food Lion.. We really loved the convenience that we could tube and enjoy water sports right in front of the home in the cove. The home was extremely well stocked. The Master Bed was comfortable and allowed plenty of room for our child to sleep on an air mattress in the room with us. Over all a WONDERFUL weekend! We will definitely be returning!
