LOG CABIN BY THE LAKE

Lake Thurmond Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Great location for a weekend getaway or vacation. In addition to the lake we have 50 miles of hiking and biking trails, 3 lakeside golf courses, great fishing and hunting. This area is suitable year round. Summer has the advantage of warm water in the lake for water sports but the other seasons have the advantage of pleasant temperatures for all other activities.

This three bedroom log cabin is located on Lake Thurmond the largest man made lake East of the Mississippi. The cabin has full ammenities. You can launch your boat within a few blocks of the cabin and dock it in the covered dock at the cabin throughout your stay or rent our pontoon boat for only $75/day if you do not have a boat. The cabin is a beautiful two story log cabin in a wilderness setting sitting on 300 ft of shorline. It is 1500 square ft with a large wrap around deck,a 6 man hot tub built into the deck and a view that extends over several miles of lake.

Golfing privileges are availabe for several outstanding golf courses nearby, fishing within a half mile of the cabin is outstanding and there is a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail only a few miles away. Whether you are looking for water sports, golf, a great place for long walks or bike rides, or just a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy this is a great place to spend a week or a weekend. And for Masters fans the cabin is about a 40 minute drive from the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, GA.

Please keep in mind when making reservations for this cabin that it is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on the lake and is not suitable for groups of more than 8 to 10 people. For example a class reunion or family reunion would be inappropriate. There are numerous state parks nearby suitable for such gatherings.

About The Owner

My wife and I built this cabin in 1988 as a weekend/vacation get away. It has served us well with many great memories. We retired recently and purchased a larger home a mile away which is now our primary residence.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1988

Why The Owner chose Lake Thurmond

We chose this area because it's location on Lake Thurmond is one of the best recreation areas in SC. Not only is it on the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi but the fact that only 20% of the lake is open to residential development keeps the boat traffic down making fishing and boating activities much more enjoyable. The lake is not crowded even on major holidays. We are not golfers but this location is also located near some of the nicest golf courses in SC.

What makes this cabin unique

All kinds of wildlife are viewable from the deck of the cabin. Hiking and biking in the development where the cabin is located is great but if you are a real enthusiast a new 50 mile long hiking, biking, kayaking trail has recently been completed a few miles away. Some of the best fishing on Lake Thurmond is less than half a mile from the cabin and if you are a golfer you will not find any nicer golf courses than those accessable from our cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived from Charleston on Thurs. afternoon, immediately felt we had picked the right place. We love the cabin, love the location, and the lake. Our grandchildren joined us for the weekend and they had a wonderful time out on the pontoon boat. We must leave tomorrow, but will be back!
Thank you, Jerry.

This was our first family vacation since our daughter had been born 5 yrs ago. I found this on the internet and was hesitant to rent this over the internet. I AM SO GLAD I DID. Mr. Jerry was so nice to us and the log cabin was amazing. I would like to say if you want a nice quite place to stay on the water this is the place to be. He is easy to work with and we had a great time thanks to him. THANK YOU AGAIN MR. JERRY

PROS--This cabin is in a nice wooded location and the lake access is good, and Jerry was helpful in fixing the hotub in a timely manner.

However, beyond that, this rental was not at all what we expected for our vacation. We certainly did not feel we got our money's worth. We ended up leaving after only 2 nights of our 5 night stay because our backs were killings us. The beds (very hard and thin with no padding) and the couch and loveseat (saggy and well worn) were so uncomfortable that we couldn't enjoy our stay. The owner offered no restitution other than to suggest we stay somewhere else next time.

KNOW BEFORE YOU RENT-- Numerous items in the cabin (as well as the pontoon) are dated and worn and are in need of repair/replacement.

FYI--I have rented using VRBO 20+ times as I travel weekly for work, and I have never written a negative review.

Owner's Response: I have learned you cannot please everyone but we do please almost all our guests. We did not refund any money because we turned away numerous other requests for the same time slot. A vacation cabin is not the same as a hotel room in terms of renting it out. When someone signs on for a time slot they exclude any and all other takers.

So far as the pontoon we tell everyone what to expect before they rent it. It is a 1986 Skipper Craft, 24' pontoon that can handle 10 people well. It is great for floating the lake or fishing but not for pulling skiers or floats. We only charge $75/day whereas the going rate on a new pontoon at the nearby marina is over $200 per 4hr rental.

So far as the beds, some like firm. Some prefer soft. We went with firm since people with back problems cannot handle soft. So far as furnishings, the cabin is a house at the lake, not a fancy hotel. It is furnished tastefully but not extravagantly. Over 90% of our guests love the whole deal from location to furnishings to availability of an inexpensive boat rental to the hot tub etc etc.

Awesome weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
Great location! The cabin was very nicely furnished and decorated. The wrap around deck provided awesome lake views. First visit to this area, and will definitely visit again, and will choose this property again! The lake was beautiful. The optional boat rental was a GREAT value, a definite highlight of the weekend. The owner came over and gave me a great tutorial on the boat specifics. (a small piece of advice: don't automatically assume the nearby marina will have the 2 cycle oil in stock. Good thing I had purchased some at the convenience store near the property!) Overall, a fantastic weekend at a great property!

Quiet, peaceful location on the lake

  • 4 of 5
We are empty-nesters and enjoyed our few days at the cabin. The cabin is a comfortable size, but might be a bit snug for a large family. The location is excellent on a cove on the lake. Even though there are other houses around, most are apparently either vacation or weekend homes as we seemed to have the whole area to ourselves.
