Gazebo on a peninsula with 790 ft shoreline. You must see the gorgeous view to fully appreciate this property! I can gladly send you more photos of the home. I think reading comments from past guests is the best way to help make a decision. Relaxing, piece of heaven, retreat, lovely are some adjectives used.
Newly redone master bathroom and floors in all but bedrooms.
You may not want to leave to visit the many activities that are nearby. The wildlife is incredible to view and there is always fun activity to watch while sitting in the gazebo by the lake or the deck by the house. Only 10 minutes (speed boat)-20 minutes (pontoon) to see the 750,000 Purple Martins roost each night on Bomb Island during the summer months.
Can use Crooked Creek in Chapin for tennis, gym basketball etc.
Guests love the privacy of the property and the 2 kayaks that are available for use.
You may launch boats on the property. Fishermen would enjoy some of the most renowned bass fishing in the nation. Boat rentals and launching sites are nearby. We are 10 minutes from Billy Dreher Island.
You can choose between relaxing on the deck or going down to the gazebo by the lake.

About Ellen or Andy Faris
My husband Andy and I live on Lake Murray and absolutely love it! Andy was a pilot for Pan Am and then Delta and commuted to New York in order to live on the lake. He now is a golfer and can gladly help you with any area golf questions. I am a former French teacher and love to be in or on the lake. If you don't have a boat, my arm could easily be twisted to take you for a ride.
Ellen or Andy Faris purchased this house in 2007
Why Ellen or Andy Faris chose Chapin
We had been renting it as annual rental since 1991 and decided to do VRBO. It's been fun! We travel and have always loved staying in Bed and Breakfasts. This is the next best thing as we aren't tied down to daily work, but have the joy of providing to renters, what we think is special. We love telling people about the lake and area, but most people do not want to leave the relaxation of the water and house.
What makes this house unique
All guests comment on how much they love the gazebo, which is right beside the lake.
Renters who bring boats, love being able to launch boats from the property and park their trailers. There is a lot of room for kids to play & big 'kids' games. Sun rises are spectacular.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This is an amazing lake house for a peaceful, private getaway. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery with my parents ( who flew down from Libertyville Illinois). I recently graduated from USC and very much enjoyed spending time away from downtown Columbia with my parents. It only rained one day this past week; the weather was immaculate! Hopefully the heron will be on the dock for the next visitors. We really enjoyed viewing his majestic presence. Thank you for letting us share this beautiful home for my graduation.
