About Charles H. Hutchins, M. D.

Charles H. Hutchins, M. D. - Facial Plastic Surgeon in practice in Gastonia, NC for 38 years: Laser Skin Care, P.L.L.C. Cecile B. Hutchins, RN - wife x 50 years 2 daughters; 2 grandsons (9 & 7)

Charles H. Hutchins, M. D. purchased this House in 1974

Why Charles H. Hutchins, M. D. chose Catawba Springs

We bought the property in 1974, when we moved to Gastonia, and it has been our main source of recreation all these years. Our two daughters grew up with the place. As our family expanded, we found it expedient to do the major renovation and addition in 2004. In 1987 we bought the Cozy Cottage (VRBO#484074) next door; it sleeps eight .

What makes this House unique

We enjoy the open spacious feeling, the nautical theme decor, the large screen porch, the shady decks, the private setting, and the surrounding woods and wildlife. The relatively smooth water of the cove renders it ideal for water sports and offers protection from the big waves of the main channel. Our lot with 156 frontage feet of shoreline is located in a nook that maintains our sand beach.

                                                          My family had a wonderful stay here. The beach, beach toys, kayaks, dock, and roomy house were perfect for a comfortable, relaxed getaway for all ages.

                                                          Worked well for 6 guys to come down from Michigan to play some golf.

                                                          Wayne B.

                                                          All was good. Could have used a regular toaster. Thank You and good chance we might do this again next year.

                                                          Would stay again

                                                          Great location close to stores and famous toaster for breakfast. We had deer every day in front and back yard .

                                                          We had a lovely holiday visit with family from 3 states and 2 countries! The house was roomy and had all the amenities that you would need. Would definitely recommend and reserve for our family again!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          It is our pleasure to help get families together and to find that The Hideaway worked as well for them as it has for our family. We certainly look forward to their return visits.

                                                          The house met our needs, and was very clean. Owner is so awesome to work with. We loved the lay out of the house, and also the outdoors. No one was next door to the owners other rental so we let the children hike around on the beaches and docks. Back of house has large windows that made viewing of the sunrise perfect. Sunsets at the end of the driveway were spectacular as well. I see another trip to this rental in our future.

                                                          We had a great visit--looking forward to same time next year!
