Main Lake vs. Cove Living on Lake Gaston

Main Lake vs. Cove Living on Lake Gaston

You know you want to live on the water, but where on the water? The Lake Gaston area offers choices sure to fit your lifestyle.

Main lake property has unbeatable views. Buyers should keep in mind, however, that when the dam is open, the current is strong and high boat traffic churns up water. The expansiveness that makes for fabulous views also gives wind a wide area to gain strength and kick up waves; this can make it harder to put your boat in the slip, swim, and enjoy your dock area.If you seek expansive views and the ability to watch boats pass by from the comfort of your living room, then a main lake home is for you. Lake Gaston has main lake view homes ranging from a perch atop a small cliff with panoramic views to homes overlooking gentle slopes down to the waterside.

For more of a community feel, explore cove homes. Here, your dock becomes your front porch: you can chat with next-door neighbors while watching children swim, and the main lake is still just a moment away by Jet Ski or boat.

Of Lake Gaston’s 350 miles of shoreline, there are a variety of different cove types. Short coves like Pea Hill Creek in the North East Quadrant offer great lake views without the “boat chop” and water current of the main lake — they are more like cul-de-sacs. Then, deep coves like the one near Tanglewood Shores Golf and Country Club in the North West Quadrant extend for miles. More like neighborhoods, they offer a lake view and secluded experience all their own.

Coves’ variety of options mean you should choose wisely to be sure you find your dream home location. Our agents can show you around to get a feel for what the best fit is for you.

Whether you want vast waves or tranquil pockets, there is a place along Lake Gaston’s waterfront for you.
