Description

Welcome to Goose Island Retreat! We call it “Goose Island Retreat” because of the cute little island (that can totally be explored) right out in front of the dock. The geese enjoy gathering there during mating season. 

We welcome you to this beautiful and spacious 4 Bedroom (Including 2 Master Suites,) 4 full Bathroom home very convenient to Raleigh, NC and Richmond, VA – just 15 minutes off of I-85! The home offers a fully stocked, open kitchen with a second full-sized refrigerator downstairs, perfect for 2 to 3 families. The home sleeps 12.

Enjoy the boat house where you can have drinks at the bar (there is refrigerator there too!), dip your feet in the water, and get adventurous and jump off the top balcony. No worries on touching bottom – it’s 23’ deep at the end of the dock! Enjoy the paddle board, water mat or canoe.  Two kayaks are also included for you to enjoy on the lake during your stay.  The boat slips are not availalble to use, but you can tie your boat up to either side of the dock.  If you need to rent a boat, we can help you with that, just let us know you'd like a referral!

Inside the house, enjoy foosball and lots of games and toys for the kids. Mornings are wonderful for reading your book in the screened room. Afternoons get shade on the patio and you can enjoy the firepit at night for s'mores. Bring your own boat or rent one to tie up to the dock! Hotel quality cleanliness, including mattress encasements on all beds. This lake home truly has it ALL!

A maximum of two dogs are allowed and are at least one year and older, up to date on shots, and on flea/tick medication. There is a non-refundable pet fee of $125 per dog.

I loved the views from the back deck and screened porch - waking up to beautiful views of the lake, and sitting out in the evenings enjoying the breeze off the water. It was great for my kids to be able to just walk outside and enjoy swimming in the lake and jumping off the 2-story dock! We wanted a lakefront property with the perfect setup for our multi-family group. It was great to have the space downstairs for the kids to get away and have their own fun place to be. Highly recommend renting a boat and enjoying the lake, maybe going to one of the lakeside restaurants for dinner or lunch one day. We've continued to return to this same house year after year for the past 4 summers. Our family loves it!

We absolutely fell in love with this house...the perfect floor plans to have adults gathering upstairs and kids happy downstairs playing foosball. Tons of room for them and their own kitchen!! The pictures do not do the VIEW from the living room and screen room justice. Its breathtaking - I could sit there all day. Great location on the lake and my kids loved challenging themselves to jump off the boat house! Highly recommend- we will be back!! Quick drive from Raleigh and a quick boat ride to the Pointe restaurant. Overall excellent experience!

This is a beautiful home! It is so peaceful to sit on the back porch and look out at the lake. The kids had so much fun on the 2-story boat dock and swimming in the lake. They also loved the downstairs TV and foosball table. The home is well appointed and inviting. You will love your stay here!
