About the Kennon House

Located in a historic landmark ("The Mud House" built in 1792),"The Kennon House" is a Lake Gaston destination and outstanding dining experience featuring upscale comfort food with a special flair. Managing Owner, Dennis Monds, and staff will extend a warm welcome.

You may choose to dine in our "red room" for menu service that features a more intimate setting with soft lighting and white table linens or in a more casual buffet room accented with a huge fireplace that is open on weekends and when we host a "Grand Buffet" for special occasions such as Easter Sunday, Mother's Day, and Thanksgiving. We also have a take-out and bar area.

The Kennon House can accommodate larger groups in private dining areas upon special request; please call ahead to arrange. Also if you are thinking of visiting during busy seasonal weekends, We recommend that you call ahead for reservations.

When you visit, be sure to learn about the history of The Kennon House. We love to share the story and proud to be part of its legacy!
