About Jim Braswell

We are James and Peggy Braswell, long time residents of South Carolina. We are from Columbia, but now live in Florence and love the lake life. We are celebrating 12 years of enjoyment of our lake house.

Jim Braswell purchased this house in 2003

Why Jim Braswell chose South Carolina

This is the perfect getaway from almost any direction, Columbia, Florence, Charlotte, and beyond. The hilly terrain around the lake makes some folks feel like you are in the foothills of SC. Access to the lake is certainly off the beaten path and your get that unpretentious feeling around Lake Wateree that invites you to take your shoes off and dangle your toes over the dock in peace.

What makes this house unique

Lake Wateree offers the best of all worlds. Unlike Lake Murray, there is congestion or traffic issues on or around the lake. Unlike Lake Marion, you will find virtually no stumps or alligators. Just great fishing and wonderful boating. We are located just below "Skiers Alley" a wonderful channel of calm water for great water skiing. This is a great location and a wonderful lake. Best kept secret in SC. Superior sunrises and sunsets with wonderful wildlife. Talk softly in the morning and enjoy the blue heron that calls our cove home.

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could need or want at your house. I love the dock, tankless hot water heater, gas appliances. I could keep naming all the things this place has that we enjoyed but I would run out of room. Every time I looked at something I thought wow that was very well thought out. I took a lot of notes on things to consider if I ever move to the lake or build my own house.

Great Value with lovely lake view

  • 5 of 5

Great setup for a vacation with a couple of families. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms with good separation. Great Deck and Dock for outdoor gatherings with superb lake view. Lake Wateree is a very interesting lake with many fingers/coves and islands.

A lot of house, well kept, it easily met our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

We travelled from the UK after having found this property to visit my sister, she lives in Fort Lawn SC. The Braswells trusted us as we did them, our trust was well placed as this property is everything it appears and more. We hope to visit again and will look to rent here again. As it is situated mid state places were all a similar distance away with the house offering comfort on our return we loved it!

Not your usual rental

  • 5 of 5

True five bedroom home with lots of space. Game room, office Living room and dinning room. Big porch on back overlooking the lake. Large well kept lawn. Obviously an owner used, owner cared for property. Owner was very helpful, very businesslike, very friendly. Wedding guest stayed, came before wedding, stayed after. Wonderful huge big lake, yet hardly anyone there. What a find!
