Lake Marion country has something for everyone. Our lakefront cottage is located on the beautiful 1100 acre impounded waters of Church Branch just across the causeway to the Big Lake. Church Branch offers a paradise for kayaking, waterskiing, knee boarding, jet skiing and nature watching. Large bass, bream, catfish and crappy can be caught right off the dock. Alex Harvin boat landing for access to the open waters of Lake Marion is just 5 minutes away. You can bike or walk to the Santee Dam (Randolph's Landing is located at the foot of the Dam) and ride or walk on top of the Dam. There are several locally run restaurants nearby and day trips to Charleston, Columbia, or the beaches are ever so easy for a change of pace.
If you are an early riser, you'll enjoy the sunrises from the screened-in porch overlooking the lake. In the afternoon, you'll relax on the dock in the shade of the oak trees sipping on your favorite beverage and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature.
We just stay at this wonderful house for 4 nights and LOVED it! The house was perfect for our family. The decor was charming. The house has everything needed: 3 bedrooms with a lot of space, 2 bathrooms, a large kitchen with all amendities needed. The dining room table is large enought for 6-8 persons. The living room was spacious and very comfortable. We felt really like at home.The large screened-in deck is lovely and the large fan help cool down from the heat of summer. We used the BBQ right off the deck. It was our daughter first fishing adventure, and she really loved it. The deck is right off a path down from the house. Our kids also enjoyed the swing and the relaxing hammock under the shades.
Overall we were so fortunate to find this rental property and a very reasonable rate!!!
I cant wait to return!!!
Good place to get away from everything.20 mile roung trip tp Manning,bring your food and drinks,no fast food here,good dock for water toys.After dark,the boats come in and it gets quiet,real quiet.House is comfortable,kitchen is laid out nice.Just a slow laid back place,nobody gets in a hurry for anything.Be sure and watch speed limits.Big screeened porch,perfect to watch the water toys or just watch the sun rise over the water,gas grill on outside deck.If you want to rest and do nothing,this is the place.Verizon cell doesn't work,have to go 5 miles up 260 to find sig,AT&T does work..Local stores have usual stuff,worms ice adult beverages no major supplies.Manning has the wal mart McD,BK,KFC,Hardees,Arbys,Piggly Wiggly,IGA.Lots of side roads to look at houses for sale in area..Go to unpack,miss the porch..
