Overview

Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This lake house takes your breath away when you enter the front door and catch a glimpse of the lake through the 3 picture windows in the living room. Set down your bag of groceries on the granite counter in the kitchen and go out on the lanai to catch the breeze off the lake and see the sailboats and jet skis crossing the water. Ah, you made it to the lake!

The three comfortable bedrooms and two full bathrooms offer plenty of room for a party of six. Two rooms have a queen bed, and one has two twin beds and each room has a TV with remote control. We also have two air mattresses if you have a couple extra kids. The house is perfect in any season - in summer you can swim off the dock or the beach. In the off-season the two fireplaces are a lot of fun. There is a stone fireplace in the living room and also an outdoor fireplace in the patio area. Both are very beautiful and will be part of great memories. The living room has a nice 46' HDTV and comfy seating. Let us know if you are going to bring your own boat and we will move our boat to give you plenty of room. We have a boat ramp and a nice, new floating dock.

About The Owner

Andy grew up in South Carolina, knows all about Lake Murray, fishing, and duck hunting, and loves taking care of Snug Harbor. Kathy works at the University of South Carolina, and used to be a travel agent, and will handle your booking professionally.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Lexington

We bought this vacation home on Lake Murray because we love boating and swimming in fresh lake water. Going to the lake is such a stress reliever! The fishing is great - the bass fishing is great in the spring! You can catch catfish and bream and perch right off the dock. And yes, we have a large cast iron pan for fryin' them up.

What makes this cottage unique

The outdoor fireplace and the patio are so relaxing and the porch is a cozy place for your morning coffee or a cool drink. The living room is very large with a vaulted ceiling and 3 big picture windows that bring the lake right into the room! In the evenings you can curl up on the couch and read from our library or watch HDTV or play games (we have lots of games!). And the strolls around the neighborhood are great!

Our stay was great. We loved the house and plan to return. Meet Andy as I was leaving and really enjoyed talking to him. The sign with my name on the mailbox was a really nice touch.

Awesome lil peace of heaven

  • 5 of 5
Rented for a few days to get work done from my Columbia residence. Owners are so sweet, and the location is great. Views are fantastic and home is so comfortable. The downstairs patio off master bedroom has a great outdoor fireplace. Would be a get romantic escape. Truly fell in love with this place.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We have never rented at Lake Murray before but we have friends who recently purchased a home there so we thought we'd give it a try. We are so glad that we did - this was truly a vacation. Everything we needed was right there! We brought our kayaks and enjoyed early morning and late afternoon kayaking trips. We were fortunate to meet Andy on Saturday morning and he made sure we had everything we needed. The house was clean and very comfortable. We've rented a few homes on Lake Marion over the last few years but my husband said that we've finally found THE ONE!. Thank you again for sharing your lake home with us. We'll be back next May.

A place we would go back to. The reasons this location is frequently booked are now known to us;
accurate depiction in the listing,
the Keenan's are great as hosts,
clean and comfortable with everything we needed to support our stay/activities logically and obviously located.
Home writing this review a few weeks after our stay---we wish we were back there.

PERFECT vacation home for our stay!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Snug Harbor to attend a graduation for our son at Fort Jackson near Columbia, and this vacation rental was perfect for us! With so much space, my husband and I, our other two children, my parents and his parents were able to stay in complete comfort and enjoyment! We didn't get to spend as much time at the house as we would have liked, but the time we DID get to spend was maximized by the house's excellent features and amenities. We enjoyed a fire nightly in the living room and one on the outside patio . . . very enjoyable, particularly for the older parents! As far as being stocked with all those "little" items (ie: toilet paper, paper towels, saran wrap, foil, condiments, spices, etc.) this place was THE BEST, and we've rented so many houses over the past several years. This location is about a 50-60 minute drive to Fort Jackson, but it was really inconsequential to us . . . even the teenagers. THANK YOU, Mr. and Mrs. Keenan, for all the "extras" you did for us both before and during our stay!
