This is our 11th year renting our Lake House and we have had a blast meeting people form all over the US. Every year we update something to keep it fresh and comfortable. If you want to be on the water and relax this is the place!
Picture yourself sitting on the shaded 2-level deck with a cool drink in your hand while the fish you caught that day are simmering on the charcoal grill. This is a great place for a romantic weekend, a perfect fishing trip, a special family celebration...or a place for extra company! Come swim or fish off the dock or bring your own boat (rentals available in area). The house has 2 fishing poles and a tackle box available, catching fish is up to you! Don't forget to bring your golf clubs. We have several courses in the area and you can play year-round in South Carolina.
The large kitchen can accommodate several 'chefs' with an eat-in area for the 'non-cooks' to hang out. The dining room table seats 5 plus a bar with 2 bar stools. The open floor plan hosts the dining/bar area and living room which all have a lake view. The large lake view bedroom has 3 twin beds . The second romantic bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed. The large 2 level deck was recently re-done and a new charcoal grill added. There are plenty of tables and chairs to enjoy the outdoors. On a rainy day you can watch Direct TV with 144 channels (including at most times HBO, Cinemax, Showtime & Starz, plus enjoy the Sunday NFL Sunday ticket in the fall.
Information on local restaurants and activities in the Columbia/Lexington area are available at the house. Come and enjoy Lake Murray!

About Steve Teets
Steve and I (Cindy) came to Lake Murray in 2004 from Washington DC and couldn't be happier in SC. We love our life on Lake Murray and think it is the best kept secret in the South. We bought the 'Big' Little Lake House so other people could enjoy Lake Murray as much as we do. And renting it, we have met so many interesting people from all over the country. We just bought a second lake house called the 'Bigger' Little Lake House II! VRBO464100
Steve Teets purchased this House in 2007
Why Steve Teets chose Gilbert
Location, Location, Location! The house is on the south side of the lake and close-in to Lexington, SC. The property is on a large lot with 100ft of waterfront. Because the dock is on a deep cove swimming and fishing is safe and fun. The cove protects boats tied to the floating dock. The huge 2 level deck on the house lets you enjoy the outdoors. The open floor plan gives you lots of light and views.
What makes this House unique
The house has 1200 sq. ft. and is filled with light. You can see the water from the dining room, living room, and one of the bedrooms. The kitchen is large so everyone can help the cook!

Great Thanksgiving getaway
Enjoyed ourselves wonderfully in this house for a cozy quiet family Thanksgiving getaway. The deck and dock view are lovely and the house is well appointed. Plenty of room in the kitchen to make our turkey and all the trimmings. Great location too - getting to the South Carolina/Clemson game was no problem at all.
Great location ,close to boat ramp
Quite cove, owner easy to reach and very friendly. Interior slightly dated but clean. Back porch provided awesome evening relaxation.
We enjoyed the peace and quiet the location of this home offered. We had a convenient place to dock our boat. The kids enjoyed fishing from the dock, and they always caught something. I must also add, the mattresses in this home were comfortable.
Review of big little lake house..
We really enjoyed our stay! The house is nicely furnished and well kept. Very clean. Everything you need in the kitchen. View of the cove is excellent. Lake Murray is outstanding! We enjoyed sitting on the dock and watching the great eclipse of 2017! And just sitting on the dock to feel the summer breeze and enjoy nature. The owners communicated well and made sure we understood everything we needed to know about the property. I hope we can return soon!
Very nice and clean little house. Cozy and peaceful back deck and boat dock.
We had a great time boat riding, site seeing, and fishing. Hanging out at the boat dock and house was fun too. I would rent this place again.
We rented this home for a long weekend for a wedding on Lake Murray. Very quiet and peaceful cove. All the amenities we needed; we grilled on the deck, did laundry, had all the dishes we needed to cook in, grocery store just a ten minute drive away. Our hosts were quick to respond to some unexpected situations. Internet was not working and when we reported it they made some calls to get us back on line quickly. The coffee maker acted up and our hosts delivered a new one that day. I don't mind glitches when the host responds so fast. Would recommend this home for a short or long stay.
Lake Murray has 500 miles of shoreline so boating is at the top of the list. Boat rental is available in area. We have national fish tournaments, water skiing, and jet skiing. Or you can just swim off the dock and relax. Also our Zoo and Ed Venture is a must see for the kids..
