Overview

About the property

The homestead of the Isle of Rest Planation.

THE FARMHOUSE IS NOT ON LAKE GASTON, BUT IT'S ONLY A MILE AWAY.

The Isle of Rest Plantation was once a 4,000 acre working plantation originally built around 1810. The main house burned down after being struck by lightening and the current home was completed in 1865. The property was divided into two parcels by the family in the mid 1920's. Most of the land was sold to developers in the 1950's when Lake Gaston was formed by damming the Roanoke River. The homestead was lived in until 1973 when the matriarch of the family passed away. Her heirs allowed the land to sit for thirty years and fall into disrepair. I purchased the homestead and 25 acres in 2005 and set off to restore the grand old house. My family and I use it as a weekend getaway throughout the year and stay for a week several times during the summer. We put the boat in down the street at Holly Creek Marina, shoot skeet, take nature walks, enjoy the deer and other wildlife, and just relax. We recently decided to try renting the house out to help with the expenses and to share the wonderful setting with others. If you are a nature lover, reader, writer, boater, hunter or all the above you will really enjoy staying at the Isle of Rest. We have allowed two weddings and two business retreats to use the property and everyone loved it. Events, like a wedding, will be charged the weekly rate regardless of number of days on the property.

The Isle of Rest plantation home sits on 25 secluded acres, but only a few miles from Lake Gaston and the nearest boat ramp. It's a nice change of pace from being on the water all day to grilling out at the farm house in the evening. There is not much to do other than relax, read, rock and enjoy nature.
