The property is a quite get away with beautiful views of the lake. This is where we come to fully relax and have fun fishing, or playing games at the Gazebo. The Gazebo is fully lighted so one can enjoy day or night time entertainment. We are very proud of our cottage and want those who rent from us to enjoy it as much as we do. We have had many wonderful guests at our cottage, several of which have returned two-three times.
The cottage just turned 4 yrs old as of March 2013. It's heart of pine flooring throughout and custom decorating make it a pleasure to spend time there. Not to mention the beautiful custom kitchen with all the latest amenities. The views from the kitchen to the screen porch are breathtaking of the lake and the sunset.We provide a set up of 1 roll paper towels, 2 rolls toilet paper per bath, hand soap and dish liquid.
We provide bed linens (+ extra set of sheets for each bed). We provide towels and wash cloths. You are responsible for bringing own beach towels. BATH TOWELS ARE NOT ALLOWED AT DOCK.
We recommend that you bring a small cooler for taking drinks to dock. Also, in summer, recommend that you bring an extra bag of ice as ice use is up in hot weather. I do have a refrigerator with an icemaker.
We very much enjoyed our time in this pleasant "cottage" on the lake. I use quotes because the finishes are more luxurious than the word "cottage" implies. The kitchen is spacious and has unobstructed views of the living room, back porch, and lake beyond. Mornings on the back porch are a joy, with more than 15 kinds of bird song in earshot.
The property is well maintained and the owners couldn't have provided better service. I definitely recommend this place to any who want a peaceful retreat. Or a fun, family gathering on the lake.
What an amazing stay we had.We loved everything about it.The house is beautiful and the view is breathtaking. Mary and John are so sweet. We will recommend them to all of our friends :-)
Beautiful home , well decorated & spacious . Kitchen was wonderful for cooking and socializing . Very peaceful smooth waterfront . We had a great time , will definitely book this house again .
This is a beautiful home on Lake Murray. Our family rented this cottage for two weeks. We bought some inflatable rafts and floated around on the lake and it was so relaxing. My mother in law joined us on our trip and enjoyed sitting on the back porch reading her book. The beds are very comfortable and the amenities are impressive, we even had a few cookouts using the grill. We felt very comfortable staying here. John and Mary are very kind and accommodating hosts and I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for some peace and quiet on their vacation. Oh, and did I mention all of the fish we saw jumping around? We don't fish, but anyone who does would be in heaven here.
My husband and I rented the lake house over the Memorial Day weekend in hopes of creating some special memories for ourselves and our three grandchild, we succeeded. The house was perfect. Open and air, warm yet elegant. All three of our grandchild caught their first fish of the dock by the gazebo. We also had a watermelon seed spitting contest and all I can say is thank God for the lake. We will never forget the looks on the kids faces when they got to experience these first time events, nor will they.
Mary and John were wonderful host and we are very grateful for the hospitality. We plan on coming back very soon. I would highly recommend renting this home to anyone who asks!

Mary & John are the best hosts to work with and the cottage is certainly luxurious but homey and relaxing. The screened porch was great for morning coffee and meals. The dock and lakeside pagoda are perfect for "drowing worms" . It is certainly everything and more stated by Mary & John. We had a super time. The Lake Shak Pub and Roma's Pizza are great places to go. We will be back.
