Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Come enjoy this relaxing home that sits just a few feet away from the shores of beautiful Lake Murray, which provides for a wonderful view from your huge window filled living room or from your jetted tub in the lake-side bathroom. You can enjoy the lake view while you also enjoy your favorite TV show, ballgame, or movie on the 52' flat screen plasma television with satellite TV and Blu-Ray and DVD player.

The house is located on a quiet cove and comes with FREE use of a canoe and a paddleboat (upon request) for the entire week, which can be kept on your private dock. The dock has electricity by the shore so that you can charge your boat batteries easily. We also have a Bennington 20ft pontoon boat that can be rented with the house for an additional fee of $695/week and can be at the dock when you arrive if you choose. The Bennington pontoon boat has a Bimini top, life jackets, pole holders, pop-up changing room and 90hp Yamaha motor. (You can also rent the boat starting at 2 days for $300)

The house is about three miles from Dreher Island State Park so it is perfect for fishing tournaments or family reunions. The house is only 7-8 minutes from the main area of Chapin where there are two grocery stores and several restaurants. The house is only 20-25 minutes from food, shopping, and entertainment galore at Columbiana Centre (mall) and Harbison Boulevard in Irmo, and about 25 minutes to Riverbank Zoo. It's also great for USC football games (40 min), and is only about an hour and a half away from the Masters in Augusta or the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The beautiful beaches of Charleston are only about 2 hours away. The house is also only about 45 minutes from Fort Jackson and is great for graduations or just to visit your favorite soldier!

The main lake-side living room has a sofa, a loveseat and two recliners and can seat everyone comfortably. The view from that couch will make you not want to move all week! There is a second living room area attached to the open dining area that also has a large 50' LED HDTV with satellite and a futon. This is great so the kids can have a separate area to play in.

There are three separate bedrooms at the house with one bed in each room, one room with a queen, and two rooms with double beds. There is also a futon in the second living room, so 4 total beds). There is a kitchen with everything you should need: full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, stove/oven, microwave, coffee pot, dishes, silverware etc. and a separate washer/dryer room. The linens for the house are also provided or you are free to bring your own if you prefer.

Lake Murray is known as one of the best bass fishing lakes in the country. The lake is forty-one miles long and, in places, over fourteen miles wide. It has over 500 miles of shoreline, and forms an impoundment of over 50,000 acres.

You can swim in the lake right off the dock or walk in from the shore. There are also chairs and a table in the yard by the lake so you can relax outside and enjoy the view.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home is the prefect spot for a family gathering. It's location is perfect for a family to spend quality time together without distractions and the go go life that most people live. The property is as pictured, lots of space and right on the lake. Working with the property owner was very easy and gave very good directions to te propety and to the larger shopping areas and attractions. Would recommend to anyone and rent again.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great vacation, and the weather was beautiful. House is spacious with two living areas, so if you don't like what's on one TV go to the other one. I read someone complaining that the bedrooms were small-seemed fine to me and besides that-your on vacation and spend little time there. Very relaxing setting on the lake and close enough to stores, marinas and Dreyer Park. Great value and would not hesitate to go back. Thanks

Very private setting

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home after a week at this lake home. The home was exactly as described. Upon arrival, we found everything to be clean, neat and in order. The cove this house is on is very quiet and is well protected from winds coming from most directions. We were on vacation which means NO COOKING. Other than snacks and some fruit, we ate our meals out. The Frayed Knot just across the bridge is excellent. In town, we had lunch at The Wired Goat and at Dosa Risen. Both are excellent as are their pastries which we brought back to the lake for breakfasts the next mornings. This rental is about a 10 minute drive to town and about a 5 minute drive to Dreher State Park. It is very convenient to everything but seems well secluded. We will likely be back next fall.

Absolutely Charming

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to South Carolina for our sons basic training graduation. We rented this wonderful home on the lake for 10 days :) Such a wonderful and peaceful getaway. It was close to town and shopping but yet private and quiet. The lake is gorgeous and we loved the nature. We would highly recommend this charming home for anyone looking for a safe relaxing atmosphere. :)) The owner was a delight to deal with as well. :) Say hi to the bunnies and turtles for us.

winter 2015 on Lake Murray

  • 3 of 5

We spent winter 2015 in this rental. I enjoyed working with Wes and his mom Sally. They are very nice people. This rental had good and not so good things about it. First and foremost this is the county. So there are very few things really close. Chapin is about a 15 minute drive and was not a problem for us. We enjoyed the large tv in the living room. The view out the slider to the lake is very beautiful. There are a lot of birds in the area and are very enjoyable. That said the following things need to be fixed. The beds tend to roll to the middle and need replacement. We encountered a big ant problem. I swept up dead ants everyday. The cable system tend to change channels on it's own. Never did figure that out. The Wifi signal is weak but adequate. There is a big fenced yard for our dogs to run in. They liked that a lot. I think that life on the lake would be more interesting in the summer. All in all ok.

Great Value

  • 4 of 5

My wife, 3 dogs and me needed a furnished place to stay after a hot water tank damaged our home, requiring 3 week of repairs. Property owner was very easy to work with and accommodating for our dogs. Promptly received our deposit back after we checked out.

The home is a great value. It has good living spaces, all the cooking utensils and appliances you would need while you're away from home. The location is beautiful: right on the lake on a quiet street out in the country.

If you're looking to get away in the Midlands of South Carolina I would recommend this property. If you are wanting to spend a significant amount of time in Columbia keep in mind it is a 45 minute drive to downtown. But if you want to be away from hustle, this is the property for you.

Golf: There are also two 18 hole beautiful golf courses, (one on the lake) or 9 hole par 3 and putt putt all within 10 minutes. There are several restaurants 7-8 minutes away in Chapin.
