Photos and Description of the Bracey vacation house rental

Charming 3 Bedroom, 3 Full Bath Home With Panoramic Lakefront Views

Welcome to Hobo Haven! Hobo Haven, our family-built home named after our beloved dog Hobo, is a charming log cabin located on two acres on Lake Gaston in Bracey, Virginia. Our three story, three bedroom, three bath home is a classic log cabin, featuring plank hard wood floors, wood beam ceilings, and, of course, beautiful hand-hewn log walls.

Our home boasts three covered and one uncovered decks, all with beautiful views of the lake. It also features a large screened-in porch, perfect for eating lunch on a warm summer day. These covered outside spaces allow you to enjoy the outdoors even in the case of bad weather. The fully equipped, open concept kitchen is ideal for preparing any meal, and features a dinning room table with seating for ten, perfect for a lovely family dinner. Even on a cool autumn or winter day, cozy up next to one of two beautiful stone fireplaces, one located in the kitchen, the other in the second story family room area. Despite being a rustic log cabin, Hobo Haven still has standard modern luxuries we’ve come to expect, including four 32-inch flat screen TVs, cable, telephone, air conditioning, and heat.

Bedroom/sleeping Details:

• Master Bedroom (Second Floor)—1 double bed, with access to outside covered deck

• Bedroom One—(Third Floor Loft)—1 double bed, one twin bed

• Bedroom Two—(Third Floor)—1 double bed, with direct access to Jack and Jill bathroom

• One high quality, queen, blowup mattress is included. There is plenty of floor space available, if you’d like to bring additional air mattresses.

• Two full couches, one loveseat

Public boat launch is minutes away, both driving and by water, at the Holly Grove Marina. With one boat and two Jet Ski lifts there is more than enough room for your boats to be secured and protected from the elements. A huge sun deck above the lifts provides amazing, panoramic water views and great sunning opportunities. Water depth off the dock is about 14 feet, plenty deep for diving, swimming, floating and fishing. Water depth at the steps going into the water is between 3-4 feet deep, making it easy for children and pets to get in and out of the water. Please keep in mind, this rental does not include a boat. Boat rentals are available on the lake.

Nearby attractions and conveniences:

• 2 minutes away from Holly Grove Marina (food, drink, bait/tackle, boat launch, gas, air, etc.)

• 20 minutes away from Food Lion, ABC store, Wal-Mart and several fast food and more upscale dining options—all located in South Hill, Virginia

We prefer rentals to be from Friday-Friday.

Getting married, or know someone who is? Please ask us for more information about hosting a wedding at our home. We've had two weddings and one engagement take place on our property, and we love the idea of sharing our home for these special life moments. We'd also be happy to refer you to a rental company for all your wedding needs. Pictures are available upon request.
