You may not want to leave to visit the many activities that are nearby. The wildlife is incredible to view and there is always fun activity to watch while sitting in the gazebo by the lake or the deck by the house. Only 10 minutes (speed boat)-20 minutes (pontoon) to see the 750,000 Purple Martins roost each night on Bomb Island during the summer months.

Can use Crooked Creek in Chapin for tennis, gym basketball etc.

Guests love the privacy of the property and the 2 kayaks that are available for use.

You may launch boats on the property. Fishermen would enjoy some of the most renowned bass fishing in the nation. Boat rentals and launching sites are nearby. We are 10 minutes from Billy Dreher Island.

You can choose between relaxing on the deck or going down to the gazebo by the lake.

There is wi-fi on site and Dish Network with 2 High Definition televisions.

We enjoy cooking and if you do, we have supplied some spices that you may want to use.

It is two hours from Charleston, SC, approx 1 hour and 15 minutes from The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National, 3 minutes to Timberlake Golf Plantation, other golf courses 20 minutes away (Golf is a bargain in this area).

About Ellen or Andy Faris

My husband Andy and I live on Lake Murray and absolutely love it! Andy was a pilot for Pan Am and then Delta and commuted to New York in order to live on the lake. He now is a golfer and can gladly help you with any area golf questions. I am a former French teacher and love to be in or on the lake.

Ellen or Andy Faris purchased this house in 2007

Why Ellen or Andy Faris chose Lake Murray

We had been renting it as annual rental since 1991 and decided to do VRBO. It's been fun! We travel and have always loved staying in Bed and Breakfasts. This is the next best thing as we aren't tied down to daily work, but have the joy of providing to renters, what we think is special. We love telling people about the lake and area, but most people do not want to leave the relaxation of the water and house.

What makes this house unique

All guests comment on how much they love the gazebo, which is right beside the lake.

Renters who bring boats, love being able to launch boats from the property and park their trailers. There is a lot of room for kids to play & big 'kids' games. Sun rises are spectacular.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful stay! The location was perfect for our family and the view was divine-absolutely loved it! It's so beautiful here and we would love to come back for a visit! So peaceful here.

Amazing Lake Murray Rental Property. Panoramic View while relaxing on the deck.

  • 5 of 5

The property is stunning. Everyone really enjoyed this rental. You will hear no complaints from us as we truly enjoyed this house. We were able to rent a boat from the Lake Murray Boat Club and navigate the boat to the property. The weather was great and we could not asked for a better experience. This was the first Lake Murray property that we have ever rented and I must say the bar has been set. My family and I give this experience a positive thumbs up. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. Billy!

Very nice lake house

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are very accurate. The house is on a nice piece of property, very private, with a nice dock to the lake. The two kayaks were great. Really enjoyed getting out on the lake. The lake was quiet at night; not noisy at all. Watched the beautiful sunrise over the lake while having my cup of coffee. My only concern was the number of ants; have the exterminator come more often. Would definitely recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the kind, honest review and the info about the ants. The exterminator is going again today-oct. 17th. If people don't tell us of problems, sometimes we don't know.

Dissapointing

  • 3 of 5

Location was perfect, but house needs some serious upkeep. Ants still a problem even after talking to Andy that they are being treated for. Black mold was found in furnace and hot water room. Notified Andy and he promptly came by and addressed problem, but some still remained due to not being able to get to it because of furnace. Would recommend some serious renovations to house. House needed cleaning due to cobwebs in several corners in house and kitchen space was not cleaned properly. Otherwise was a great location and views were fantastic especially sunrise.

Owner's Response: The mold issue has been taken care of, as has the ants, (for now). Like any home in the country and and on water, there are ants and spiders. We have a pest control service and in addition Andy, owner, puts ant killer on the whole 2 acres often. We think our cleaning ladies do an excellent job. If they miss some webs , or the kitchen wasn't "perfect" by someone's standards, I don't fault them for that. I think the best thing for one to do in deciding if this property is for them is to read the rest of our hundreds of reviews. We are proud of our home, have had wonderful renters and hope to allow many others to enjoy our VRBO home.

Beautiful lake front, private and quiet, easy access to Columbia, clean and well maintained property

Thank you very much for sharing your home with our family. It was the perfect location to stay while we dropped off our daughter at USC in nearby Columbia. We will definitely be returning again to enjoy the lake and views

Wonderful house - premium location

  • 5 of 5

This house has a wonderful location on the lake. You have excellent views of the sunrise in the morning. The yard is spacious so bring your yard toys. We had a lot of fun throwing Frisbees, footballs and playing bocce. My husband caught several different fish right off the dock. We took the kayaks out for some lake paddling. This home was very enjoyable.
