Overview

Gilbert House Rental Photos and Description

Waterfront Home, dock, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

This is our 10th year renting our Lake House and we have had fun 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! Lots of guest's come back year after year.

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. Access to tennis is also available.

The large kitchen can accommodate several 'chefs' with an eat-in area for the 'non-cooks' to hang out. The dinning room table seats 5 plus a bar with 2 bar stools. The dinning/bar area, living room, and a bedroom 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 plus the Sunday NFL Sunday ticket.

Information on local restaurants and activities in the Columbia/Lexington area are available at the house. Come and enjoy Lake Murray!

About Cindy 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

Cindy Teets purchased this house in 2007

Why Cindy Teets chose South Carolina

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"You couldn't ask for a better location on Lake Murray. The no-wake cove is priceless for the kids and our boat. The weather was great so we enjoyed plenty of boating, watersports, and fishing."

Great Lake Retreat

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxed setting on a clean cove with a new dock on Lake Murray then this is a great choice. Our family of (4) had plenty of room and we enjoyed the getaway. The house was clean and the lake setting was superb. We plan on returning. Thanks!

Most Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

As an older couple with adult children, we wanted a place we could rest and relax from our jobs and invite the children to join us when they had days off from work. Lake Murray is only a few hours from home for us, but it was well worth the expense. We rented a pontoon boat when more family was around, and when they weren't we spent time catching up on reading and just being together. We took a few early morning walks and met the local labrador shoe thief! We brought an Easy Up and put it up over the dock which made a nice place to sit in the shade closer to the water. My husband would sit while I floated on a raft. Heavenly!

Beyond Expectation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We drove over 17 hours from Texas to visit my mom in Lexington and what awaited my family after our long journey - three young boys was beyond our expectation - Wow! The house was very, very clean and was just the right size for our family. The boys had fun swimming in the cove and diving from the dock and my wife and I had some quality alone time on the wonderful deck enjoying coffee in the cool morning and drinking wine while watching the beautiful Carolina sunset. Thank you so much Cindy for making our trip perfect. We will definitely be back again - Lek and family, Austin Texas.

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for the FLW Cup in August. Really enjoyed our stay. House was great. The dock was great to keep the boat at (quiet cove off the main lake) and was only a few minutes from Dreher Island State Park where take off was for the event.

Cindy is great and if there is anything you need she will make sure you get taken care of immediately. Next time we are at Lake Murray we will be giving Cindy a call.
