About the property

House, 7 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

House Name: “Lake Gaston Hideaway”

Wow! The first thing you notice when you walk in the front door is the lake. There are absolutely spectacular views from everywhere. It's like you are living right on the water. The second thing you notice is that it's a really nice home with high quality finishes and furnishings, and plenty of space for everyone in your large group of family and friends. There are large spaces both inside and out where everyone can get together, as well as plenty of space to spread out when you need some private time.

Hideaway boasts a spacious 4200 square foot floor plan with 3 levels of living space. The 7 bedrooms and 3.5 baths allow you to comfortably sleep 18. Hideaway could easily accommodate more people by many rental standards, but we limit the group sizes so we can maintain our high standards of quality.

Hideaway is the perfect home for extended families, multiple families, and groups of friends or colleagues. You will enjoy spectacular main lake views from decks, the sun deck on the double boat house, and most rooms. People have also been thrilled with the new patio we've added overlooking the lake with 2 covered seating areas, and a huge uncovered area with a fire pit. Hideaway is located in the South West 'Quad' of the lake in Harbor Landing, an exclusive gated community of lake front homes in Macon, NC.

If you are one of the families or groups of friends who come back year after year for your vacation at the lake, we thank you. If you have not yet stayed with us, we hope you will give Hideaway a try, have a great time, and then become one of our regular guests.

Wonderful family gathering spot!

  • 5 of 5

The setting was beautiful. An enormous deck over the double boat slips was a wonderful gathering spot for our extended group of 14. Enjoyed sunbathing, swimming and beautiful sunsets.

The kitchen was well equipped to cook and serve to our large group. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Beds/ accommodations were excellent!

Great Thanksgiving with Family!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic Thanksgiving! On what has become a bit of a tradition, our extended family gathered at Lake Gaston again to celebrate the carving of the bird. Our stays have been to different locations each time and this year's site was a gem! "Hideaway" will be hard to beat. It had enough bedrooms and overall space that allowed us to be very comfortable all together or in small groups. The kitchen was well-supplied and became the location for much culinary creativity. The weather could not have been any better with warm temps and gorgeous sunsets. The backyard patio with it's wood fire-pit was a great amenity and became a regular evening gathering spot for spirited games of corn hole. The views of the lake were great either from the boathouse, the deck, the patio or inside the living room. The owners were very thorough in providing timely information and guidance. All of us truly enjoyed our stay and would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

This was our first time staying at Lake Gaston and I really think we picked the perfect house. The owners went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. They were quick to get back to me about any questions I had and gave us a great restaurant recommendation. The views from this house were unreal- huge windows that gave us a view of the lake. How about their location?! Perfect- right on the main lake and a close distance to nearby restaurants (two nearby). The house had ample space for everyone and we had the opportunity to rent their boat which was also perfect. I cannot say enough good things about this house and these owners! Definitely recommend!

Beautiful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at the Hideaway. It was great as always. The amenities are wonderful, including a new pontoon boat with a large raft, which the whole family enjoyed. The Fredette's were very accommodating and attentive to our needs. Another perfect vacation!

Very Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

First I want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your home on Lake Gaston. It was the most relaxing 3 days I have had in a while. Your home was gorgeous and comfortable. Thank you for extending our check out time to 2:00pm it was nice to wake up, have breakfast and coffee one last time, and then pack up without feeling rushed.

We had a fabulous time on the boat, tooling around the lake, anchoring for a swim and taking the raft for a turn was so much fun.

We look forward to possibly staying again next summer.

Nearest Airport
75 Miles
Nearest Motorway
14 Miles
I-85 Exit #229 (Oine Rd.) in NC
Car: recommended

Lake Gaston is truly one of the outstanding lakes in the country! It's great for swimming, boating, fishing, jet skiing, water skiing, sailing and much more! It is approximately 34 miles long, one and one half miles wide at the widest part, has over 350 miles of shoreline and over 20,000 surface acres of high quality water.

One of the great features of the lake is that because it is used for generating hydroelectric power, it must be kept within 1 foot of it's normal level by regulation. Because of this, even when surrounding lakes are low due to drought conditions, Lake Gaston is at or very near its normal levels.

Lake Gaston is conveniently located on the border between North Carolina and Virginia between routes I-85 on the West and I-95 on the East. It is about a 1.5 hour drive South from Richmond, VA, and about the same North from Raleigh, NC.
