Guestbook comments from the owner
June 28-July 5, 2014

From the 13 yr. old: We had another great week here at Lakeside Leisure. The weather was amazing, consisting of only 1 shower despite Hurricane Arthur nearby. The dock had plentiful room for the boats we brought and still allowed room for swimming. We loved skiing and tubingout on the water and then coming in the evening for pool, puzzles, and games. We also enjoyed watching the numerous fireworks on Independence Day. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We can't wait to come again.

From the 11 yr. old: Thank you for letting us use your awesome house. We had lots of fun tubing, skiing and fishing during the day and came back and played some fun games and movies.

From the 9 yr. old: I celebrated my 9th birthday here with my awesome dad, cool mom, fun brothers, great grandparents, silly uncle, weird cousin, my new weird cousin, and my weird aunt. I love my week here.

After living near the ocean in the Myrtle Beach area, it is wonderful to swim in a freshwater lake. No sand, no hurricanes, no traffic, the life is easy and the climate mild. Plus, there aren't any alligators in the water!

Jackie Halls purchased this house in 2006

Lake Gaston is a well kept secret. When traveling on I-85, one crosses the lake at an unscenic location. When one is traveling on I-95, there is no hint that a gorgeous lake is just to the west. Even within North Carolina, people do not know about Lake Gaston. It is a pleasure living here and enjoying the perfect climate.

Local concert and theatre opportunities:

Royal Palace Theatre, Roanoke Rapids, NC

The Centre, Weldon, NC

Lakeland Theatre, Littleton, NC

Ridgeway Opry House, Ridgeway, NC

Meherrin River Arts Council, Emporia, VA

Cherry Hill Plantation, Warrenton, NC

Henderson Community Concert Association, Henderson, NC

The Dunn Center, NC Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, NC

ArtBank of Southside Virginia, Lawrenceville, VA

A unique destination is the Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park, 4963 Hwy 258 Scotland Neck, NC. There are waterfowl from every continent at this park. It is an hour from the house, but well worth the visit.

Adam Fields' Wakeboard School is right around the corner. Enroll in day/week classes.

WakeSurfNC is across the lake. Enroll in day/week classes.

A TRIP TO REMEMBER!

  • 5 of 5
My cousin and his friends told us about this amazing lake home, so we decided to book it for ourselves! This was a mini vacation for my husband, my parents and my sister's family! We has traveled to beaches and new york city but by far this was the most relaxing! My dad who is very hard to please said that this was the best vacation he had ever been on! Every family had privacy in there own rooms with tv's which helped you escape the family drama! We loved being able to dock our boat, and fish right from the dock! We brought maryland blue crabs from home and enjoyed them on the outdoor deck, which is our family's favorite thing to do! The home was clean and big enough to fit our large family comfortably! The size of the fish in the lake are huge, which made the trip for the guys! The paddle boat, horseshoe pits, and game room gave everyone something to do, which was awesome! thank you so much for such a wonderful getaway! We are coming back again this year with my husbands family for another incrediable getway!

BEST FAMILY VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. This was the best family vacation. We are planning to book this for our family every year. No one wanted to leave. My grandchildren and my children were very sad when it was time to leave. You didn't miss anything. The house was equipped with everything we needed. Would have been nice to have a hammock. We can't thank you enough as this was just what our family needed with our busy schedules.
