Description

Stunning peninsula lot in one of the most coveted locations on Lake Gaston! Enjoy evenings by the fire pit, yard games with the kids, picnics on a peninsula or watch the family tubing from an expansive deck with 180 degree views! This is the kind of retreat that will be your family's second home for years as you come back again and again creating great memories to last a lifetime!
We have the perfect place for swimming with little ones in a shallow sandy area with over 220 feet of bulkheaded shoreline. Water gradually extends to 6 ft deep at the end of the oversized boat house with a generous space to entertain and enjoy the incredible panaoramic water views. Easy access for swimming, sail boarding, kayaking or any watersport!
Pour yourself an icy mojito from the dockside tiki bar with mini fridge and relax in one of the many lounge chairs or swing chairs provided. Grab a book and melt into the waterside hammock and read until the sun goes down.
Huge flat lot for yard games, relaxing in the hammocks, picnicing or sunbathing! Enjoy a game of volleyball or frisbee golf by the water! At the close of the day, gather 'round the firepit for relaxing reminiscing of the day--treat yourself to a s'more...or TWO!
The home boasts 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with a shower on each floor and an outdoor shower for use after a long day of tubing. Second floor has water facing room with a balcony and 1 king, front facing room with 1 queen and side bunk room with 2 double beds. First floor has the master bed with a king mattress and private bath. Ground floor has an additional bedroom with 2 double beds.
Prepare meals in brand new kitchen fully furnished with everything you need. Plenty of seating, both inside and out, for all your guests (12 table seats and two bar seats inside)!
The boathouse has 2 boat lifts (1 pontoon and 1 set of bunks for a bow rider), a jet ski lift, lounge chairs, a dropped lounge platform and steps into shallow water for wading or small children! Spend evenings with family or friends and never leave the boat house because you're just arms length from the newly installed live-edge cherry tiki bar!
What else could make your trip to the lake more fun? How about 10 kayaks (including one youth kayak and one tandem kayak), a canoe, a Stand Up Paddleboard and a 5 person paddle boat so your whole crew can go out and explore together! There are 23 life jackets ranging in size from infant to 4XL! Feel like fishing? You can catch the "Big One" right off the dock (you must provide the rods, tackle and bait) as the fishing here is excellent!
You'll make memories at the Sophisticated Heron that will last a lifetime! Hey, don't forget to check back throughout the year for fall and winter specials so you can rekindle those warm summer days as the weather cools! :)

Are you celebrating special days in someones life? Then let us help craft a memorable experience for your group or loved one! From romantic weekend getaways to birthday celebrations to writers retreats we can make your mini-vaca a truly memorable and highly personal event.

We have been vacationing for many years at Gaston, and love this part of the Lake. This home was ideally located for all water activities!

On the first night we noticed the grill wasnt working well. I shot an email to the owner and they got back right away. They had someone out the next day to fix the issue and stated if they couldnt fix, theyd get a new one there. It was fixed! I had a couple of other questions during the week and each time, I got a helpful response quickly. The house was perfect for our families. The boat house had tons of fun toys (paddle board, kayaks, etc). It was wonderful!

The owners could not have been more accomodating and went out of their way to make sure our weekend was perfect. The views from the house are simply amazing. A huge yard for the kids to play in and they enjoyed using the kayaks all weekend long. Great dock for boats and swimming too. Nice sand bottom to the lake so the younger kids could swim and walk around in shallow water. We can't wait to visit again. Thank you!!!
