Great Place for a Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Summer Breeze August 20-27, 2016 and had a great time. Love the house and the two kitchens were great. We enjoyed the pool and the perfect location next to the boat launch. We had everything we needed and the owner was very much available when we had a question. We had a full week of grilling out, swimming, jet skiing and boating. We also stayed here about 7 years ago and loved it. Being able to have our pets was great. Great place and hope to go back again next year

Odd layout, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

The layout of this house was a little odd to us. Main entrance to house was up some outside stairs, but it also had a front and back entrance downstairs which we found more convenient to carry in items. It had 2 kitchens, but both of them were very small. We chose to use the kitchen downstairs so whoever was cooking was close to the outside gathering where we spent most of our time, and the barbecue was downstairs next to the pool. The problem: dishwasher was upstairs so we washed dishes by hand, otherwise we would have had to carry them all up a very steep staircase. Most of the dishes, pans,and utensils were upstairs so we had to move what we needed downstairs. New refrigerator upstairs but the icemaker never worked so we had to buy ice.

Sleeping areas were good. More than enough space for all to sleep. Eating space was not so good. Upstairs had a table to fit 6, downstairs had a table to fit 4, along with a bar table with 4 stools and the edge of the island with stools. Left some of us standing to eat since we all wanted to eat together.

Hot tub was nice. Pool was good, but with so many guests using it, the filter needed to be on all the time - not set on a timer. It was never clear enough to see the bottom. Not sure their pump and filter is the correct size for the pool.

House was clean but needs maintenance work. Cabinetry and bathrooms are very dated. There were a couple cracks in the walls from settling that had not been fixed.

We will not stay again only because of the odd layout and the lack of get together space for the number of guests it can accommodate.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the comments from this guest because it motivated me to get all new pictures this past weekend so you can see all that my home has to offer. Please check them all out. My home could use some updating and that is hopefully on the agenda in the next year or two. The home is about 2800 square feet and sleeps 18 people in 5 bedrooms with one pull out sofa in the downstairs living room. I love having all of my extended family able to sleep together one in home because the visiting is so much better that way. I love the location on the lake with a gently sloping lot down to the boathouse. The amenities such as swimming pool, hot tub, volleyball net, hammock and horseshoes provide lots of different activities for everyone in your group. Sometimes you have a week where things go wrong and I can appreciate the fact that this was frustrating for this guest. I personally manage this property and do all within my capabilities to ensure that you have a great week and that any problems are taken care of in a timely fashion.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at your home. It was on a perfect location at the lake, directly next to the boat launch. The amenities were outstanding and the property manager was available by phone whenever we had a question. If you have kids and your own boat/jet ski to drop in...this is definitely the place for you.

Great weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We sent the weekend for my birthday with about 10 people and had a great time. Even though it was too cold to swim, we enjoyed the outside area and privacy. The hot tub was a great addition and with so much to do inside, everyone kept busy. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook up some epic meals and our pups enjoyed the area. Natalie was great to work with, we hope to spend even more time here during the summer. Thanks again for a great time!

Nice Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Brought our family of four teenagers with three of their teen friends and our dog to the lake to getaway and kick off the summer. The house was very spacious and allowed us to move around without bumping into each other. There were plenty of bedrooms and seating areas. The pool was certainly put to use. My husband took some out on the lake for tubing while the others stayed and swam or played games.

We will certainly choose this house again.

Excellent Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at Summer Breeze on our recent vacation to Lake Gaston. We were looking for relaxed vacation setting where we could spend a week to unwind and enjoy the benefits of a lakefront home. Summer Breeze met all of our expectations and provided us with a great vacation experience.

The house is very spacious with three bedrooms upstairs and two more downstairs. It has a dated decor, but is very functional with two large kitchens, dining area, large living and rec room areas, and a huge deck in the rear. The kitchens (2) were well stocked and have mostly new appliances which were easy to use. The bedrooms were large and equipped to sleep a lot of people. We have a family of five and were able to have our children stay in two bedrooms while we stayed in the master all on the same floor. The master has an updated full bath and the other upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom through connected doors. As stated earlier the house is very functional.

The lot, yard, pool and hot tub really make this home an excellent choice for a vacation. The house is located in the pea hill creek section about 3.5 miles from the dam. The location provides excellent access to the lake, with many places to sit and enjoy the view. We rented a boat and enjoyed water sports and cruising the lake with convenient parking in the home's boat house. When we weren't enjoying the lake we enjoyed the many other amenities in the yard, including the pool (which our three small children loved), hot tub, fire pit and horse shoe playing area. The neighborhood is very quiet and the many trees on the lot offer much privacy!

Overall our family had a wonderful vacation and would recommend Summer Breeze to anyone looking to enjoy some time in Lake Gaston.
