Welcome to our "Place of Peace!" While that might sound corny, we started using it with our 2 sons as a way to remind them to get along and then it occurred to us that this house really is a peaceful place. We hope you will feel removed from all the stresses of daily life here as you float off the dock or grill out taking in the vista of the lake. This place is truly wonderful, whether in warm sunshine or in a white wintery day. We look forward to sharing our experience with you and yours.

The space
This unique property is nestled on a 1 acre private lot on the VA side of Lake Gaston, 10 minutes from I-85 and 15 minutes from charming South Hill, VA, where you can grab a burger and homemade slice of pie from Horseshoe Diner, hit the farmer's market, the park, and swing by Walmart for anything else. Our home affords you privacy (it sits closer to the lake than the surrounding homes and has an amazing view while still surrounded by the trees' canopy), a brand new boat dock, two large decks on the back, a protected walk-in cove to float around or for the kids to play in the shallows that gradually drops to 12ft at the end of dock. There are two kayaks to use on the dock as well. Top quality bed in master and guest room. Bunk room with 5 beds. 2 living spaces both with TV's. Large open yard for outdoor activities.

You can fish and swim safely off the oversized dock. Take in the beautiful sunset over the lake while grilling or enjoying the fire pit.

Upper level of house features an office loft with a desk and a double bed.

Middle level offers spacious living area with large TV and surround sound, half bath, kitchen equipped with double ovens, toaster oven, coffee maker, crock-pot, small blender and everything you need to make a multi-course meal, including basic spices and oils. Dining table seats 6 complemented by 4 barstools or the deck table, also seating 6.

Master bedroom with brand new ensuite provides a peaceful retreat with great views and super comfy bed.

Lower level is where you'll find the queen guest room (tempurpedic mattress), family room with TV, dart board, board games, puzzles and books, and the kids' favorite bunk room (5 beds). The other full bath and laundry can be found down here as well. Walk out to the lower deck for the sunrise or walk on down to the dock.

The boat dock was just completed this year, and features a covered lounge area with overhead fans, hammock, roll up bar with mini fridge inside and side-saddled tie offs with bumpers for your boat during the day or overnight.

Guest access
Guests will be able to access the whole house and boat dock, excluding use of the garage for vehicles. Washer/dryer are available, and we stock the house with handsoap, dish washer detergent, laundry detergent and basic spices and cooking needs, and linens and towels.

Other things to note
We have 2 kayaks and a stand-up paddle board available for use at the dock, as well as corn-hole on the lower deck. The family room has puzzles and games galore. Gas for the grill is hooked to the main line, no tanks! At this time, we are limiting our home to renters that are 25 years old and older.
