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!
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.
