BORDEAUX BAY VACATION HOME WITH A VERY PRIVATE, NATURAL LAKE SAND BEACH

Lexington House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

You are sure to enjoy this very unique Lake Murray, south shore vacation rental setting! The included photos show the isolated property and unassigned adjoining peninsula, forming a scenic panorama of your very own personal 'Bordeaux Bay'. Your bay opens directly into deep/open water providing a superb lake vista and great boating and fishing. The 1870 square foot vacation home has its very own, very private, manicured natural lake sand beach, found in precious few locations at Lake Murray. Having your personal natural lake sand beach right in your backyard is such an enjoyable experience…..it uniquely differentiates this vacation property from all the others! Your family will thoroughly enjoy this very comfortable home with great views, great fishing, great swimming, and a wonderful beach. For the 5th consecutive year, we have an active osprey nest on the platform in the large tree just beside the house. During the spring and summer you have a fabulous view of the adults flying in to the nest to feed their chicks from your back deck. You will also likely see Canadian geese, mallards and wood ducks, turtles, and sometimes bald eagles. White-tail deer tracks across your beach are a common sight.

Almost half (45%) of our rental time this past year was from families who had previously rented with us one or more times, with some back for their 4th time. Two thirds of our 2014 summer reservations were from our very loyal returning families, most being multi-generational families with children. In our 150+ rentals over 6 years, we have had families from 27 different states, with over 60% of those families coming from outside of South Carolina. Guests have come from as far away as CA, MN, NY, VT, and England. We have had multiple guests from Hilton Head, SC and Florida come stay with us! We have already begun booking dates in spring and summer 2015, and only six of our 2015 summer peak weeks are still available. In addition to our summer rentals, spring time, Masters Week, USC Graduation, USC football and baseball games, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and month-long snowbird rentals are all very popular periods.

We updated the entire house....furniture, appliances, and carpet. Five huge floor-to-ceiling windows provide a fabulous view of your very private beach, the isolated bay, and the lake from the Family Room and Dining Room. The 40'' flat screen HDTV (with 200 Channel DishTV) may distract your attention from the superb view outside. Satellite wireless internet is also available. Ceiling fans are in the Family Room, all bedrooms, and on the covered porch. The house’s open deck and covered back porch face northeast and your bay, making them perfect for all-day use. We have an outside shower (with both hot and cold water).....great for rinsing off after enjoying your beach.

Across your lawn of lush green Palisades Zoysia grass, at the north end of the property is a pergola (arbored patio sitting area) with an outstanding 3.5 mile lake view. It's a wonderful spot for watching the sunrise or moonrise, and the July 4th fireworks on Dreher Island. A concrete fire pit, with plenty of firewood, is located just off the beach and is great for evenings under the stars! Take a look back to the west across the shoreline, and you will be treated to one of those magnificent South Carolina sunsets.

All of your essential boating needs are addressed with your own boat ramp and a very large floating dock with electric outlets. You can experience great fishing right off the property or the dock, or in the abundant nearby coves. Pull back from your dock and you are right in open water - over 60 feet deep only 300 yards off shore. The lake is over 1/2 mile wide here…..great for skiing, tubing, and jet skis. Your bay is protected by a small island about 100 yards off shore and the peninsula to the east. This configuration of the property provides for a wonderful protected swimming area, either out from your beach or off your large floating dock (12+ foot depths) which has a swim ladder.

Your Bordeaux Bay vacation home is located on a nicely landscaped one acre lot with 125 ft. of natural lake sand beach and 425 ft. of total waterfront (expanded to 800 ft. by the adjoining peninsula). At the east side of the property is a boathouse (shown in aerial photo beside the dock) that we do not rent. With its very unique setting, Bordeaux Bay is sure to provide your family with a truly memorable Lake Murray getaway. This very clean property is located on the south side of Lake Murray, northwest of Lexington, just beyond Climax, SC. There is essentially no vehicle traffic on the street, since the house is literally at the “end of the road”.

NOTE - For a number of reasons, we DO NOT allow weddings or wedding receptions at Bordeaux Bay.

**** We keep our VRBO calendar as up to date as possible to indicate rental availability. ****

Why The Owner chose Lexington

We bought this particular property because of it's magnificent view of the lake from the house, it's very unique natural white lake sand beach, and it's expansive 'bay-like' shoreline. The natural lake sand beach right at your doorstep makes this location different from all others. We have poured a tremendous amount of energy into the property, to enhance this naturally beautiful setting, and to provide you with a superb place to relax and enjoy Lake Murray.

What makes this house unique

The adjoining wooded peninsula to the east and the small wooded island 100 yards offshore to the north provide a natural isolation barrier for the property, forming your own private 'bay area' - hence the name 'Bordeaux Bay'. When you are outside in the yard, or on your natural lake sand beach, the whole 'bay' is there for you to soak up and enjoy.

Wonderful family spot

  • 5 of 5
We just rented this terrific home for a week in July 2014. The décor had been updated, the kitchen was very completely equipped and the lawn, dock and beach area were perfect for a family with small children. The house was clean and we had no negative surprises at all during our week. Just a terrific family vacation spot. Oh....and there are views of sunrises AND sunsets...a pretty neat trick at one house!

Lake Murray @ Bordeaux Bay

  • 5 of 5
Bordeaux Bay is perfect for families with children. The sandy beach area provides a wonderful place for small children to play and the chairs provided are just right for adults to sit and watch the children or just enjoy the scenery. The swing and shade tree are an added benefit. We were able to park our boat at the dock and also fished from it. The pergola area with seating was another favorite spot to fish and/or enjoy the lake. The yard is well landscaped and conducive for outdoor games. The large dining table accommodates big families and you have a great view from the den area of the lake as well as watching the birds eat from the bird feeder on the deck. This was the third year that our family has rented this home for a week vacation. The owners have thought of everything you might need. It's a great location to enjoy Lake Murray.

Great for families with kids

  • 5 of 5
Our family, (3 children ranging from 8 to 14), had a great time at this property. The lake water was a great temperature for swimming, and it's great to have a beach from which children enter the water. Also caught lots of small fish from the dock.

This home is in a great setting. The house was great, though we didn't spend much time in it, other than collapsing after long days of fun and sun. The way this home and lot are situated at the end of the road gives great privacy to the beach and swimming area. the one adjacent neighbor's home is screened by trees and greenery, so when sitting at the beach you have 100% privacy. As a family, we usually try to go someplace different every year, but this home may change our minds!

I highly recommending renting a boat while here, Lake Murray is a large lake with lots of coves and inlets to explore.

Sharon - South Yorkshire, England

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Bordeaux Bay was wonderful, what a beautiful place to unwind - if I ever want to write a novel it would be an ideal setting - so peaceful !! The location was handy for Columbia where our son is studying at the university and for South Carolina as a whole. The owners were very helpful and gave us any information we wanted. The property was very well maintained and clean and had everything you needed. I would definitely recommend it. The gas barbeque is great and my son in law made good use of it. We did get through a lot of bird feed and watched the ospreys as they made their nest which was a real treat.

Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough for us to swim in the lake - should have come in the summer!! Great for kids and adults alike.

A great get-away!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our three teenagers and two dogs stayed at Bordeaux Bay for a week and everyone had a wonderful time. The home and property are beautiful, well appointed and well maintained. Plenty of linens and appreciated little "extras." Posted pictures are very accurate. The property and lake kept everyone happy for most of the trip but we also took in a golf lesson and hit one of the local driving ranges which was only 15 min away. On a bad weather day we went to the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia and found it to me a real gem!

Masters Weekend at Bordeaux Bay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and two daughters spent several days at this wonderful retreat during the 2012 Master Tournament. The facility and grounds were immaculately maintained and well cared for. We had guests come during the week and the large dining room table and extra bedrooms proved to be very accommodating. We enjoyed the large rear deck, the dock, the fire pit and the beautiful grounds. Our one year-old chocolate lab, who is crate trained, may have had the best time of all of us.

The owners provided a special handbook of information, which included a history of the lake construction, area restaurants, grocery stores and things to do. Lake Murray was beautiful and the sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. Also the surrounding community (Cedar Grove) turned out to be a delightful drive to the closest grocery store. The experience exceeded our expectations. We really appreciate the owners sharing this rental property. They take pride in this special lake house and it shows! Thanks for a great week--we'll be back!

FIRE PIT -- A concrete fire pit is on the property just off the beach area, near the pergola. At the fire pit is a concrete bench and a picnic table. Stacked firewood by the fire pit is provided. It makes for great entertainment for evenings under the stars!

BICYCLES -- One adult 21-speed and one 10-speed bike are available for your use.

BIRDWATCHING -- An osprey family nests in a large tree just beside the house. You have a great view of their approach to the nest over the bay from the back deck of the house. Bald eagles nest off to the east of our property, and sometimes perch in a tall pine just above our driveway, surveying the area for food. The osprey and bald eagles are huge, beautiful birds!
