AMAZING rental on Lake Gaston

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a wonderful vacation rental on a beautiful lake. We had an amazing extended family vacation at this house for a week and couldn't have asked for a better house or a nicer owner to deal with. Joe was always kind and very reachable whenever we had a question. If you are looking for a nicely maintained, updated house for your next big family vacation, this is the place. Thanks again for allowing us to make family memories in your beautiful lake house.

5 STARS for this Amazing House!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a large group of several families that vacation together every year. We have stayed in large houses in the Outer Banks and once before at Lake Gaston. Out of all our rentals, this house on Osprey Point is our favorite. The owners were wonderful to work with. Their attention to detail, knowledge of the area and easily accessible by phone or text was very helpful. The home is well maintained, clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything you can think of and talk about beautiful, high end appliances and granite everywhere. Each bathroom had loads of soaps and shampoos. The towels were soft and luxurious and plenty of them. The beds were very comfortable. Large couches and side chairs made the living room comfortable for the adults. The kids had their own rec area downstairs with a pool table, Xbox, DirectTV, and dozens of family fun games in a massive wall cabinet. When you walk out onto the huge deck you have a fantastic view of the lake. Early mornings with a cup of coffee sitting at one of the tables watching the sun shimmer of the water is breathtaking. Walk down to the boathouse and up the circular staircase to the upper deck you get a full view of Poe Creek.

As our kids have grown into teenagers they love all the activity the lake has to offer. The location on the lake and the amenities of this home kept them busy from the moment we arrived. We brought a boat and several Seadoos and there was plenty of dock to tie them up and pull the boat into boathouse on the lift. There were several kayaks, a paddle board, and a huge trampoline. The kids loved to jump off the upper deck of the boathouse into the deep water to see who could make the biggest splash or touch the bottom. The skiing, wake boarding, wake surfing and tubing on the boat and Seadoos was fantastic in the protected creek that kept the waves under control when the main lake was rough. There were several evenings when everyone loaded up on all the power toys and road out to goat island to play in the water and watch the gorgeous sunsets over the main lake. Our vacation was a 10 out of 10. Great friends, great house, sunny 85 degree low humidity days and water temps in the low 80s made for an amazing vacation and memories that will last a lifetime. If you rent this home you will not be disappointed.

Great House and Best location on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Have been going to Lake Gaston for three years and we have stayed in this house twice and schedule permitting will continue to rent the home. Best location on the lake - great views, proximity to boat house and axis to shopping. The house is open, fully equipped, and plenty of room for kids and adults of all ages. Nothing better than making coffee early in the morning in the spacious kitchen, walking directly out to a large deck with chairs and umbrella or casually strolling down to the nearby dock and enjoying the sounds of the lake waking up! Watch your kids play from the house or dock during the day and enjoy the reverse at night as the lake closes down and you are sitting on the 2nd story of the boat house watching everyone return. Great owners to work with. You will not be disappointed with your stay at this house

Best house on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house all-around that we have rented at Lake Gaston! The home has a great set-up both inside and out. The bedrooms are spacious and the basement is great for the kids to get away and watch TV, play, etc. We loved how the house opened right into the outside patio and you could walk a few hundred feet to the boathouse (without having to hike up a large hill like many other homes on the Lake). The views are fantastic and location of Osprey Point is great for skiing/tubing. The owners were great to work with and were very accommodating! We would definitely rent this home again!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Osprey Point is one fantastic home, we had the best week! We included inlaws, friends and had plenty of room. This house is so nice and well furnished. The kitchen is just amazing with everything you will need. The downstairs game room was perfect for our boys and their friends. Ping pong in the garage was also heavily used. Now the best part is the location of the dock, so easy to get to and is first class! We can't wait to go back next summer. Great owners, they are the best VRBO owners we have dealt with.

Great memories

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of teens and their parents. I can't say how much we enjoyed this trip. I have stayed in several vacation rentals and this was by far the best equipped. It has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. Jill was great to work with and answered all of my questions promptly. Everything was very clean and in good working order although I did have a little trouble with the lock box for the keys. I highly recommend this rental to anyone interested. The lake was beautiful and a great place to swim and boat. We hope to do it again next year!! We had a wonderful time! Thanks Jill for sharing your home with us! :)
