Harbor Landing House Rental Photos and Description

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!

What an amazing week we had at the Hideaway @ Lake Gaston. Everything was perfect. 4 families and 18 people yet very accommodating. I would definitely endorse the boat/sporting package. Our group ranged from 9 yrs old to 72 yrs old and all had a great time. I would and have already recommended this place! in 1 word, AWESOME!!

Would return in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

This place really has it all! We had a long-overdue family reunion with lots of kiddos & everyone was comfortable. The place is clean, well-stocked and plenty of room to spread out. The owners have really thought of everything to make this vacation home just perfect for a large group. The lake is beautiful, community is friendly & quiet. Hope to make it back!

Incredible Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about my stay was incredible. The location was easily accessible, which was great considering that I my family was coming together from D.C., Tennessee, California, and Georgia! We arrived to a beautiful home that exceeded expectations. The house was spacious enough that we never felt cramped, and the deck above the lake was great for lunch and a swim. The children enjoyed themselves inside the home, playing Frisbee in the yard, bouncing on the water trampoline, or riding as passengers on the pontoon boat. It was a great opportunity and location for my family to reconnect and relax to start the summer season.

Andre and Nancy we very accommodating during our stay, first making sure that we arrived without issue, and later being available when we had questions about the home. I would recommend staying at their home to anyone. Andre and Nancy, thank you so much for everything.

Relax by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family fellowship and relaxation by the lake. Everyone from the young to the old thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The house is well equipped for everyone's needs. The kitchen had everything we needed and the extra refrigerator downstairs was such a help. Plenty of places to hide out and read or get with the family for TV or games or just conversation. The deck above the boat dock was especially inviting and well used. The pontoon boat was very enjoyable for relaxing rides on the lake and/or fishing. We caught enough catfish for a delicious meal. The weather was wonderful - we could not have asked for a better week or place to stay. The only recommendation we have is it would be helpful if the light switches were labeled - but we managed.

Great large family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had our family (10 adults and 10 small children) make this our vacation spot this summer and it was awesome! There was plenty of room to accommodate everyone bedroom wise and living space. We rented the pontoon boat and it was fantastic. We did go to the nearby marina and rent a couple of jetskis which just added to the fun. The kids loved the trampoline in the water and we were in or on the lake every day. The lake wasn't that busy during the week which was great. We were able to do a lot of water tubing and jetskiing without having to dodge boats. Great place!

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.
