Duck away for a bit to your dream vacation destination on lovely Lake gaston! This super-fresh, stunning property is everything you have been searching for in a vacation rental. It is nestled in a main lake, easy access cove strategically centered in the middle of all the activity, giving you the perfect combination of relaxation, adventure and access to local amenities! The property's unique features and decor will leave you in awe. You'll enjoy a spacious (Big enough for everyone to gather!) outdoor patio equipped with a grill and plenty of lounge seating.  You can take in the breathtaking views of the wooded surroundings and glistening lake waters, or grab your sunscreen and towel and immediately head straight to the fun just a few steps away!  With its prime location, luxurious amenities, and exquisite views, this property is the perfect vacation rental destination. Don't miss your chance to experience the ultimate getaway in this majestic paradise.

This freshly renovated home is an easy drive from Raleigh/Durham, Richmond & Virginia Beach.  Located on the Northwest side of Lake Gaston, 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. You also have easy access 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 ice cream or pick up a souvenir at the gift shop. It's a local favorite!

The main living area features an open concept floor plan with vaulted ceilings and a vast wall of windows that showcase spectacular views of the water. Modern appliances and conveniences blend seamlessly with the home's charm. The kitchen features include a microwave, drip coffee maker, Keurig, griddle, blender, toaster oven, utensils, pots, pans and serving ware. All are available for use.

The sleeping areas and bathrooms spread throughout all three floors and are outfitted with comfortable bedding. Rainy days? No worries here!--the walk-out basement is a fantastic hangout area furnished with furniture, Smart TV, foosball table and a variety of board games, puzzles, and books for entertainment! 

After you've settled in and become familiar with the interior of the house, take a stroll outside; it only gets better!! Enjoy birdwatching with a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the massive deck--it will take your breath away with the beautiful sights and sounds of the peaceful cove-to-main lake views.  Ample seating is provided for outdoor dining overlooking the water. A gas grill is provided for all you outdoor chefs! 

Enjoy countless hours of swimming, floating, fishing, kayaking and paddle boarding. We ask that you bring enough life jackets to enjoy the fun and ensure proper sizing for your particular crew. Limited chairs, kayaks and paddles boards are provided for your enjoyment.

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. 

At the end of the day, wind down and relax around the firepit--AND don't forget the S’mores! Duck Away for a Bit has everything you need and more to enjoy Lake Gaston!

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 kitchens are 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 may be 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.
