Our home is located in Wildwood Point on Lake Gaston. Enjoy the neighborhood swimming pool/picnic area. Access two Wildwood Point boat ramps. The home sits on a one acre level lot with a gentle slope to the lake. Relax at our Tiki Bar w/fridge, grill and fabulous view of the lake. You can swim around the boathouse or sunbathe on the deck above the boathouse. Tie your boat up to our dock. Our home has an open floor plan w/kitchen open to the dining area and great room. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor w/full bath. Master bedroom is huge w/2 ceiling fans, cottage style furniture and sunrise view. There is a large screened porch w/panoramic views of the lake and dining set. We are centrally situated on the lake and just 1.5 miles to a Food Lion shopping center.
My family loved staying at this house in Lake Gaston. My kids loved staying in the kids' bedrooms with bunk beds. We all enjoyed the beautiful views from the decks and walking onto the docks. We also swam in the lake off of the dock.
We also enjoyed the neighborhood pool. It is on a beautiful spot on lake gaston as well.
I highly recommend staying at this house. My family and kids cannot wait to return!
The location on the lake is perfect for wake boarding and tubing in the long cove before you enter the main lake. It's a very peaceful property with nice views and a great dock area. The nearby grocery store is a plus. The beds were comfortable, living spaces were nice and we loved the screened in porch.
What you should know:
--There is no wi-fi, and very spotty cellular coverage by AT&T. We had trouble even checking the weather on our phones. Other cell carriers might have better coverage. Have your recipes, maps, etc. downloaded before you go.
--Towels and Linens are not included, so be prepared for laundry when you get home.
--The downstairs bedroom (with twin beds) and the bathroom open directly into the large bedroom instead of to the common room. Fine for parents and younger kids, but might be awkward for multiple couples or teenagers.
Beautiful property. The house itself is wonderful for a group of friends or multiple families, as we had comfortable sleeping arrangements for everybody in our group. However, the crown jewel of the property is the dock, grill and tiki bar setup. Perfect for relaxing by the water and enjoying a cookout in the evenings.
We have rented on Lake Gaston for many years and never had an experience like this! The homeowners didn't return calls or e-mails which should have been the first clue. Very poor communication. One of the biggest issues was finding out we had no water the 2nd day. When we contacted the homeowner the wife called and accused us of all taking showers at the same time! This was not the case and if it was a problem we should have been told to not use both showers at the same time. Plumber came to fix it and we finally had water approximately 5 hrs later. The following evening the same thing NO WATER! Called again and they did not get back to us until the next morning about 12 hours later-another part needed to be replaced! We don't take a vacation and rent a home to run back and forth to the lake with buckets to use the bathroom and go buy water for cooking! We would have gone camping if we wanted to do that! There was a terrible ant problem on the screened porch and by the dock-so my husband had to go to the store to buy ant spray. They do not have anything extra like bug spray, a broom etc. We tied one of our boats up to the dock and went out in the morning and the tie down broke off and our boat was sticking out in the lake! Oh and the refrigerator down at the dock was not usable it was full of mold and mildew-disgusting!!!! All that being said and few other small things we asked for 1 night of rent back with our deposit. After 2-3 after leaving property we contacted the owner asking where our deposit was? We never waited that long to receive our deposit back we always had our deposit returned within few days to 2 weeks. Again no return call, text or email! My husband contacted them again and they said it would be 45 days! Finally on the 45th day after leaving property they returned our deposit and NOTHING else for all the problems and inconvenience! No note, nothing! During the 45 days we waited for our deposit these 2 5 star ratings appeared on the reviews but take notice they are anonymous!
We had a great time at Cove Haven. The home has great views from the screened porch, decks and from inside the house. It is situated so there are also views from the kitchen of Lizard Creek across the street. We all had fun boating and swimming around the dock. We also went to the neighborhood pool later in the day to relax and enjoy swimming there. You can also go there by boat and there are picnic areas with grills, a dock to swim from, a sandy beach and playground. The carpeting in the two upper bedrooms look brand new. The Tiki Bar was a great place to relax and hang out at on the dock. Overall we had a great stay and look forward to our next visit at Cove Haven.
Lake Gaston is one of the truly superior lakes in the country. With over 350 miles of shore line. It has 20,000 acres and is 34 miles long. Enjoy fishing, boating, swimming, wake boarding, water skiing tubing etc. It is only one and a half hours from Richmond, VA and Raleigh, NC, two hours from Virginia Beach, VA and only four hours from D.C. Our home is centrally located on the lake and is just one and a half miles to a Food Lion shopping center with a drug store and restaurants nearby. There is a Flea Market nearby (Fri - Sun) or it is a twenty-five minute drive to Roanoke Rapids.
