Welcome to Firefly Bay Lake Gaston, a luxury vacation home with plenty of space, spectacular main lake views, and all the amenities to make your lake vacation a memorable one.

As soon as you step in the front door, the expansive views of the lake will take your breath away. Drop your bags, explore the more than 5200 square feet of living space on 3 levels, and prepare to enjoy all that Firefly Bay Lake Gaston has to offer!

Relax in the spacious, brightly lit great room, prepare meals in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen, and dine with family and friends in the dining area with seating for 14 inside and 6 outside on the deck. Grill your favorite foods on our Weber grill (which features a built-in propane line so no tank is required), then head down to the lower level for more space to relax and entertain, including a pool table, a bar area with an icemaker and beverage fridge, a smart TV with a PlayStation 4, and a closet full of puzzles, books, and games.

Next, head to the screen porch just off the kitchen to get away from the action and savor a cup of coffee or a good book while you enjoy the summer breeze. Then enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub with spectacular views of the lake.

Looking for more to do? Head to the garage game room where you will find ping pong, foosball, basketball pop-a-shot, arcade games, cornhole, plus a second full size refrigerator and freezer for extra storage and convenient access to food, drinks, and snacks.

Of course, the main attraction is beautiful Lake Gaston only a few steps away from the house. We have lake toys galore including 4 kayaks, 2 stand-up paddle boards, a floating swim mat, and other various inflatables. We have a variety of life jackets in child, youth, and adult sizes, as well as a vacant boat slip, a PWC lift, and cleats on the dock that guests are welcome to use. If you would like to rent our pontoon during your stay, please let us know!

Head up to the upper level of the dock to soak up some rays on the sun deck, complete with lounge chairs, tables, plenty of seating. If shade is more your style, our lot is oriented so that there is both shade and sun even in the middle of the day! Enjoy swimming in the deep water (8-10 feet off the end of the dock), or use our jump gates to take the plunge off the top deck (if you’re brave enough!). Try your luck fishing, or take a kayak or paddle board to explore Hawtree Creek just a short distance down the shore. For guests bringing a boat, a public boat ramp is located just 3 minutes from our home.

After a long day on the lake, enjoy smores at our firepit and watch the spectacular sunsets from the sundeck. As the evening light fades, relish the magic of summer at the lake as the fireflies make their appearance. Another perfect day at Firefly Bay!
