BEAUTIFUL HOUSE WITH DOCK ON LAKE MURRAY!

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.

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

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.

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!

Thank you Kathy & Andy, again, for sharing this piece of paradise with us. We'll see you next year!

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.

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!

Our family has stayed at Snug Harbor 2 times, we love this place. It is so nice and everything is always perfect. We had the honor of meeting Andy on our last visit. Andy is great, so nice, had a wonderful day with him. The views are great, and the deck in the back is where we stayed. We played games, fished and rode the boats. And oh the hammock next to the lake ( you wont want to get out of it ) is out of this world. The neighbors are also very nice. You would have to come stay to see for yourself how great this place is. We will for sure be staying there for many years to come. Thank you for sharing your home with our family.

Beautiful Lake and cozy house

  • 4 of 5
Our family and another family stayed at the Snug Harbor home back in August 2013. I'm just delayed in providing my review. We enjoyed the house and with 4 kids and 4 adults there was plenty of room. We went to a nearby grocery store (15 min) away to get groceries and really didn't have to venture out much after that (on Sunday you have to venture further if you wish to purchase beer or wine). The pantry space is limited so you do have to get creative with storing your food items or just use the counter. We rented the pontoon boat one day, but it wasn't running the best and we spent most of our time going very slow to avoid having the engine cut out. Andy was extremely helpful and he only charged us for the gas. However, since the pontoon is a much older boat, the gas is about the same if not more than the boat rental. On the 2nd day, we ended up renting a new pontoon boat from the marina near by and gas was half the price simply because it was more efficient. The kids loved it and had a blast tubing and fishing. We were practically the only ones on the lake that day. There are great restaurants on the other side of lake that are definitely worth the boat ride over. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and having the dock was excellent as well. The kids fished and jumped off the dock plenty! The duck hatched her babies while we were there so the kids had fun seeing that. Would recommend it as a nice lake getaway.
