Wow! Wow! Wow!

We're a family of 4 with 2 children under the age of 8. While we only stayed overnight this time, we certainly laughed and played hard while we were there! We took the advice of the 3 words that hang above the large windows in the family room in the house: LIVE, LOVE, LAUGH. That we did.
This was our first visit to Lake Gaston and each of us were agog at the truly spectacular view from the house. Really, the view from this home never stops. Every time I looked out, I think I giggled in awe...even at 6:30 am when the kids woke me up hoping that we could go down to the lake again!
The house is immaculate, well-taken care of with great care for the details. Everything you need - from a coffee pot to a grill - is there for your convenience. The beds are fluffy and oh-so-just right. The decor is easy on the eyes and the many windows invite the natural light right in to keep you company.
There is love here that first begins with the owners. Clearly this home is a labor of love and an investment in the things that bring families and people together: taking time, being unplugged and enjoying the simple, good things about each other that you can often miss during the day-to-day frazzle of life.
Our family enjoyed exploring and discovering the lake and beach area; it's something we happily did for hours. And the water isn't too cold this time of year!
Afterwards, we enjoyed our evening dinner on the downstairs porch area where we sat and rocked on the rocking chairs, ate and watched the storm clouds roll in. Of course the kids tested out the big hill, which was great for rolling down!
When it was clear that we were in for a storm, we moved inside and tried out the K'nect game system. There were many more things on the "to do" list, but we hope to be back soon.
We are very thankful to have enjoyed our time there. In fact, we almost didn't make the trip as our family pet became ill the morning we were scheduled to leave. However, once he was settled safely in the vet's care, the owner gently encouraged us make the trip. We're so glad we did.
We had a remarkable stay and certainly made some lovely memories. You will, too. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
See you at the lake!
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed our home as much as we do! Relaxing and enjoying friends and family is what it is all about. Thank you for your great review. Petra
