Overview

Afton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Located at the top of beautiful Duck Creek this property is situated on a wide body of water. You can enjoy swimming, fishing, boating and other water sports. Nature abounds in this ideal lake setting and you’ll enjoy viewing a variety of wildlife including many types of birds, waterfowl, deer, fox, etc. The westward facing deck provides you with a comfortable view of the sunsets; some are truly spectacular.

The inside of this one level lake house can comfortably accommodate three couples or two young families. King size beds in two bedrooms provide excellent sleeping accommodations. The third bedroom makes an ideal “children's’ room” with a bunk bed and trundle bed. The trundle bed opens to a king size bed..

Simplicity is what makes this home away from home so comfortable. The fully equipped kitchen has a handy pass through opening to the dinette area. The spacious dining room/living room allows everyone to gather together.

Fishing and swimming are just steps away to the covered boat dock with a swim platform and ladder. You can easily launch your boat at public or private ramps only minutes away. A boat slip in the boathouse is available upon request when you make your reservation.

About Mary-Ann Gallo

Vincent is a retired New York City bus driver and RN and Mary-Ann is a retired RN. We traveled the country for 2 years in a big RV. We bought our Grand Lake home in 2003, made major renovations and moved into our home in 2005. We are thoroughly happy with our major move to Oklahoma, enjoying the beautiful country and wonderful neighbors and friends we have made. Our children live in nearby Oklahoma and Arkansas and our lake home is a great place for us to gather and have fun.

Mary-Ann Gallo purchased this house in 2009

Why Mary-Ann Gallo chose Oklahoma

In 2009, we had the opportunity to buy the house next door. Our perfect setting with house and dock only easy steps away, makes for a perfect vacation spot. It accommodates our visiting friends and relatives and also those looking for a perfect Grand Lake location to vacation.

What makes this house unique

The lakehouse is convenient to many attractions on Grand Lake, such as rock climbing, the Pensacola Dam, antiquing stores, horseback riding, all kinds of boating, fishing, swimming activities and events on Grand Lake and much more. The sunsets from the patio are always enjoyable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I liked the bunkbeds a lot. The only problem was that there was no napkins for dirty hands but I loved how you could walk right down to the boat dock. I love the view so much! The house was awesome.

Great place - Great people!

  • 5 of 5

What a nice place to relax and such nice people! Mary Ann and Vinney were more than awesome and made us feel welcome and at home. The welcome basket and lovely bottle of wine was such a nice touch. Hope to be back soon. The place was super clean and easy to find. The dock was easy to use as this was a no wake zone and the launch was just a stone's throw away. Wonderful place and highly recommended!! :-)

Relaxing and GREAT fishing

  • 5 of 5

We just spent the weekend and had a great time. Nice quiet cove facing west for spectacular sunsets with large patio and chiminea. Owners are great people and go out of their way to be sure you have a good time. For those who like to fish, the crappie are huge right in your own fully functional double slip covered dock. Everything you need in there to fish including a convenient kitchen sink to clean you catch. We added it up and caught 6 different species of fish! Mostly crappie, but hybrid bass, channel catfish, bluegill, a few drum and other sunfish. Book your stay, they're still biting!

Love Love Love! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The house was roomy, clean and cozy. Pool table/air hockey table in the back was a great bonus. The location on the lake was gorgeous and fantastic for swimming. Just a short boat ride from the popular Dripping Springs. The front porch was large...great for watching the sunset and outside eating. Best of all was the hospitality of Mary-Ann and Vinny...made the stay just that much more awesome. We miss it already and plan to come back next Summer!

Clean, well kept, excellent location w/nice enclosed dock!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 spent a wonderful week here with no problems. Location in back of Duck Creek provides excellent fishing in immediate area, shelter from wind for docking boat, low boat traffic & beautiful view. Large concrete uncovered back patio (a cover would be a nice touch, but it's not a big issue) overlooking lake w/nice furniture, constant shade that shifts during day, but can't sit out in the rain. We used the gas grill which was new from last yr & it worked wonderfully (we stayed 4 or 5 nights last yr & wanted to come back. Marinas & a couple of restaurants in Duck Creek & also a well supplied convenience/small grocery store about 1 1/2 mi away with a nice grill inside that serves outstanding burgers, etc. Owners live next door, are very nice people & are available to take care of any problems (which we didn't have). It was such a nice stay both times that we plan on returning.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property twice in the summer of 2012. Each time we arrived the house was clean, cool and ready to go. A very comfortable place to stay it is open and relaxing, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a game room there is plenty of room even for larger groups.

This house is water front with a high quality fully enclosed dock that is great for putting you boat in, we have a Malibu and easily drove it in with the tower up, the dock is great for fishing and swimming as well.

The location on Duck Creek is very quite and peaceful and you are only a five minute boat ride away from two water front restuarants and marinas each having good food and other services.

The greatest feature of this vacation rental is the owners, Vince and Mary-Ann they are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They live next door and therefore are very avaialble to you, but also give you your privacy. They want to make sure you enjoy your stay and will help you in anyway they can.

I highly recommend this location if you are considering a trip to Grand Lake.

Thanks for the Memories!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this "AWESOME" lakehouse for a family retreat and it was perfect! Great location close to other family accomodations and right on the water. The young married and single adults and their little ones stayed here and they had a great time. They were all comfortable and had plenty of room inside and out. We were so grateful to have the docks available and the owners were so generous! WE had a place to put all of the boats and jet skis and were sooo happy to have a lift available for the jet ski that unexpectedly took on water! Everyone really enjoyed the swim deck and the young bunch enjoyed hanging out on the deck area at night letting the little ones enjoy some sparklers. WE will be visiting this home again! Thank you so much!!
