family reunion in a lakeside location

We are looking for a place for 15 people including 7 children under 15 for a 50th ann. celebration. The patriarch loves to fish. Other outdoor activities enjoyed by all. Nothing flashy. Any suggestions?

I'm not too sure what you mean by flashy, but this is a good website with a resort on the lake. They may have other sites available also. Good luck and enjoy NC!

There are a number of very nice, fishy lakes in NC and SC but to find a house big enough for 15, unless you have a boat or boats, i think you might do better at the coast. Any of the major beaches has plenty of surf and pier fishing and the opportunity to rent boats. A great anniversary gift for Pops might be a an off-shore charter which he could enjoy witth kids and older grendkids, or, if he is a bass fisherman, a guided trip for drum (redfish) or speckled trout would be great. Plenty of lodging, too.

There are plenty of places in NC that would meet your needs. If you google "nc lake cabin rentals" you'll see lots of them. Spend a little time doing that if you haven't already, and we'll be happy to help you narrow down your search range or answer any specific questions you may have.

The mountain lakes are truly spectacular--off the top of my head I can think of Lake James, Lake Lure, Watauga Lake, Lake Toxaway, Lake Glenville, Hiwassee Lake in the mountains. They all have vacation rentals available.

Any of the larger lakes throughout the state will also have rentals: Lake Norman, High Rock Lake, Badin Lake, Kerr Lake, etc.

Oh I have the PERFECT spot. Googgle THE LITTLE RETREAT AT LAKE GASTON. They have one bih house that will sleep quite a few but they also have 6 otehr surrounding cabins. GREAT RATES- The lake borders NC/VA but this particular area is actualy in VA, just over the line really
