Description

Experience the very best of lakeside living anytime of the year with the rustic charm of this main lake cottage! Winery, golf course, marinas and shopping are conveniently located. Warm weather welcomes you with open arms to the water--no need to go anywhere else for the most fabulous tubing, skiing or wakeboarding experience on the lake! After a fun day in the sun, take a sunset cruise to the Eaton's Ferry Bridge for a delicious dining experience at one of two waterfront restaurants! Want to kick back and relax? Recline with that book you've been longing to read on the lakeside deck, or throw in your pole at the dock to catch the Big One! Cooler weather brings a vivid kaleidoscope from shoreline to sky and a mirror image on the calm waters beneath your pontoon (BYOP). There is nothing like a crisp afternoon on the water soaking in the season's colors when the hustle and bustle of summer have simmered down. At the end of the day, wind down and relax around the firepit --AND don't forget the S'Mores!  Any time of the year is the perfect time to stay at Heron Lodge!

An easy drive from Raleigh/Durham, Richmond & Virginia Beach, Heron Lodge is located on the North West side of Lake Gaston between mile markers 14 & 15.  You're just a quick boat or jet ski ride to the Eaton Ferry Bridge. Here you will find local waterfront restaurants and a marina to fuel your watercraft. Also, this home is conveniently located at the entrance to Poplar Creek, home of Poplar Pointe Marina and Shady Shack Bar & Grill, just a short distance away! Grab some fuel for your watercraft, great drinks, bar food, hand-dipped icecream or pick up a souvenir at the gift shop. It's a local favorite!
Bringing or renting a boat? Cleats are provided to tie off your own boat, jet ski or a rental (The boat slip is for owner use only). You will need to bring your own bumpers and lines to secure your watercraft.

To get you started...
The bathrooms are stocked with courtesy soaps and shampoos designed for quick "off the shelf" use.  Each bathroom has a roll of septic-friendly toilet tissue as a starter. You are encouraged to bring whatever you feel you might need beyond the courtesy items provided.

The kitchen is stocked with one roll of paper towels, one trash bag for the kitchen trashcan, trial-size dish soap, two dishwasher pods and 1 sponge.  You are encouraged to bring whatever you feel you might need beyond the courtesy items provided.

A few more tid-bits...  :)
1.  Trained service animals are welcome!  Otherwise, we have a strict "no pets" policy.  We can help arrange lodging for your pets (as long as they are up to date on shot records which must be provided) at a local boarding facility during your stay, if you'd like; just give us a call...way in advance as they fill up fast!

2.  The house, like 99% of all lake homes on Lake Gaston, uses a septic system.  This system is a finely balanced biological system.  Please help us keep it working flawlessly by flushing ONLY toilet paper.  Renters are responsible for any damage caused by misuse.

3.  Bow-Riders and deep draft Wake Board boats need to check their Hummingbirds to ensure adequate depth in all coves.  Pontoons should have no issues and everyone is welcome to tie off at the dock with rental boats.(make sure to bring your bumpers!).

4.  Culverts & Bridges:  Be sure to lower your bimini top when going under bridges or through culverts.  Appearances can be deceiving!

5.  Security Camera Disclosure:  We take your privacy very seriously.  However, this home is monitored by exterior security cameras.  The cameras do not record sound.  Please let us know if this is an issue with your party for any reason.
