About the Owner

Hello - I'm Tonya, the owner. I'm from Maryland, but have lived all over the US (most recently Chicago). I now live in London, but get back to Lake Gaston as often as I can. I've travelled the world but Lake Gaston remains my favorite place!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Sunnyside Cottage. It was very relaxing and a great home. We brought our boat but it was a little windy so we fished off the dock. We caught some great catfish and bass without ever having to leave the dock! It was also wonderful to sit on the screen porch in the evenings and just watch the water. We hope to return in the spring and will stay here again. Thank you so much Tonya!!

We had a wonderful time with our close friends on the lake, did some fishing, went on the boat and cruised the beautiful lake Gaston. Couldn't have been better. The location of the house is perfect. We will be back soon!

Perfect getaway on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this relaxing house right on the lake. The deck and floats were wonderful for adults and kids alike, and we rented a boat from the marina just a few minutes drive (and boat ride) away which was perfect! The house was wonderful to relax in before and after each day's adventures! The owner was very quick to respond to questions and with the refund of the deposit, which is always a big plus! Would highly recommend!!!

Wonderful stay!!!

We had a wonderful time at the Sunnyside Cottage. The house and deck were spacious and it was nice having the basement and the games to play with. The owner of the house was more than sweet and we will definitely look at renting this house again in the future!!

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Sunnyside Cottage! It was a quiet area of the lake with quick access to the main lake. The cove was great to swim in and relax in. The porches offered nice areas to relax in during the day and night. The home was comfortable for two families to share. We would definitely choose this cottage to rent again!!! We had a dryer issues upon checking in. The dryer was broken and the towels were wet from the pervious renter. Miss Tonya's maintained person was quick to come check the issues. He went above and beyond by taking all the wet towels and laundering them and retuning the same evening. The broken dryer was replaced with a brand new one the next business day. The home was comfortable and provided a great getaway spot. THANK YOU for the use of your home and a great vacation!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Dawn, thank you! I'm thrilled you enjoyed Sunnyside Cottage so much, and especially pleased the dryer being replaced didn't cause an issue. I'll make sure to send extra thanks to Dale for drying the towels, he is a star. Hoping to see you again next year, have a great rest of your summer :)

From the Owner

I grew up spending summers on the lake at my parent's place nearby and fell in love with LKG. It's been my lifelong dream to own a place on the lake - and Sunnyside Cottage is literally a dream come true! I hope you'll enjoy your stay at the cottage. It's quaint, charming and peaceful, yet right in the center of the action on the lake. Thanks for considering Sunnyside Cottage!
