Gazebo on a peninsula with 790 ft shoreline. You must see the gorgeous view to fully appreciate this property! I can gladly send you more photos of the home. I think reading comments from past guests is the best way to help make a decision. Relaxing, piece of heaven, retreat, lovely are some adjectives used.
Newly redone master bathroom and floors in all but bedrooms. Wi-Fi available. PLEASE SEE THE CAMEO/VIDEO BELOW . YOU WILL NEED TO COPY/PASTE.
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.

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
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.
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.
Christmas 2016 was not as I had planned- new house, 1st Christmas in it. But you graciously opened your home to my family and allowed us to gather for a country Christmas on the lake. We will always remember your home and the view of the lake as incrediable retreat on Lake Murray.
This rental was incredible. The property is easily accessible yet secluded and private. The view is stunning!!!! and I submit no better on the lake. The owners were extremely accommodating, the property well maintained and a fair price for the rental. I encourage anyone who would like to see Lake Murray consider this on the A-list
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!
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.
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.
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
Had a very relaxing trip. Loved the kayaks and the dock. Swam, fished, kayaked, and rented a pontoon for site seeing. Wished we could have stayed longer.
On the property you have 2 kayaks. There are also a few games and puzzles. People have left blow up toys and floats in the storage area. You may rent a boat very close by. You may launch a boat, usually up to about 22 ft., from the property.
